I stayed here for the first time on a business trip to the area. This is the best Fairfield Inn I have ever stayed in. The location is very convenient to the beach area, with a number of good restaurants and shopping within walking distance, including a Whole Foods. My King Suite room was very spacious. The HVAC system was...

This is an absolutely pristine property. It is located on a main road with lots of shopping/eating options. Notably, there is a Whole Foods almost across the street, and it's a short drive to the Santa Cruz boardwalk. It's very convenient to the interstate and less than a 5 mile drive from Capitola to downtown Santa Cruz that has a...

We returned to Fairfield Inn this year. The check in and front desk services were quick and friendly. We were initially given a room with seemingly no heat, and within minutes after a call, the desk staff checked our room and gave us another room. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. A nice touch was the recycle bin in...

We found the hotel desk clerks most welcoming. Our room was a very well arranged suite with really excellent lighting bedside! Breakfast was plentiful, with two kinds of eggs, oatmeal (very thin watery), and several good Greek yogurts, some fresh fruit... Slept well. Recommend it!

We visited this inn on reward points and they put us in a small suite which was great. Enjoyed the bathroom and shower. The breakfast had lots of choices, including make yourself waffles.

We stay in Capitola often, and the service at this hotel is consistently great. From check in to check out the staff is friendly, parking is available and hotel beverage area is suitable for our small group. Close to food and a short walk to stunning views... I look forward to returning for my next meeting.

It's always hard to find a hotel that works for a family of 5. This one worked out well. However, the place is a bit noisy with all the families. I expect that at hotels such as this. The breakfast is good. The gym and pool are more than adequate. The staff is friendly. My only complaint is the mattress...
