Very good service, beautiful room, view, grounds and location. The bed was not comfortable for me and a few of the blinds were broken that looked very inexpensive to replace.

The Good and Not-So Good
Beautiful location and friendly staff. I've stayed here several times and I get the sense that maintenance of the property has fallen off. Food quality for breakfast needs an upgrade, too.

Perfect location for couple getaway
Amazing location and service. Capitola beaches and restaurants were an easy walk away but the neighborhood was so quiet and beautiful. We could see the ocean from our bed! I appreciated that breakfast was brought to our room so we could relax and take our time. It was continental breakfast, but tasty and great coffee. Specific to the Lilac Room: the bed was very comfortable, but the bathroom could use a little updating. There was noise from nearby rooms but we still slept well. Great overnight getaway!

What a spot!!
The location is amazing--in a residential neighborhood and a reasonable walk into the cute town of Capitola.The furnishings are not the "classiest", but the place is clean and the people were wonderful. Nice to have a basic breakfast delivered to your room to start the day.
