This is a decent hotel. No fancy stuff. The rooms are basic. The staff are great. It's clean! For us it was an affordable stay close to the beach. Surfs up!

The hotel is average. Clean enough, comfortable beds, but the pillows were stiff. I wouldn't want to lounge in the bathtub but good enough for a quick shower.

"Nice Quiet Hotel friendly staff"
Only issue was at check in, I booked 2 rooms ground floor facing forest and a crib for 1 room. At check in I didn't get the view that I thought I paid for instead view of parking lot when I said I called 3 days prior to confirm everything I was told that yes I would have those rooms and a crib. But at check in I was told that it's the hotels dissractipn to change the rooms. If that was the case I shouldn't have paid for a room with a certain view and it was confirmed when I called days earlier then change it without notice. Plus they didn't have a crib in the room I rate my check im as very bad But the rest of the stay was excellent.

"Just ok hotel, but great location"
Either Expedia screwed up ( and Expedia charged me more than the hotel receipt showed... what a ripoff), or the room really was not ocean view, as I thought, I would get. There was a shared patio, which was ocean view. The location is very convenient to all attractions, many restaurants and the pier. Staff is just ok. It seemed they were overwhelmed ... But the rooms are renovated and big and nice.

Inn at Depot Hill

250 Monterey Ave, Capitola - Map
"Beautiful B&B"
Having never spent time at a B&B, I had no idea what to expect. Once I arrived, reality quickly surpassed anything I could have imagined. Not only was the location more than ideal (it was steps away from downtown Capitola), but the inn was warm, friendly, and absolutely adorable. I loved our room, and our friends below us had their own unique room with a hot tub! The facilities were clean, cozy, and huge. The morning breakfast (blueberry pancakes) was delicious, and the service was impeccable. When I think of Capitola/Santa Cruz, I will remember this B&B, and definitely plan on coming back.

    Santa Cruz is calling — find the perfect hotel

    Everyone wants to score a deal on travel, but price is just one factor to consider when booking an unforgettable hotel. Whether you’re visiting family, attending a conference or taking a well-earned vacation in Santa Cruz, having an awesome experience should be a no-brainer.

    Hotwire will hook you up! From restful nights near your flight to that prime spot in the city’s heart, we’ve done our research to bring the best options to your fingertips. Book your Santa Cruz hotel with us now and start your next adventure.

    You’re not the average traveler — and we know it

    You’ve done your homework and know exactly where you want to go. We’re here to help with some Hotwire travel geek-approved tips on how to save on your booking.

    Get away for the weekend

    Hotels in bigger cities usually charge higher rates during the week, when people are traveling for business. Weekends can be a bargain! It’s the other way around for vacation spots, so if you’re looking for a beach escape, consider a mid-week trip.

    Give yourself some wiggle room

    If your plans are flexible, play around with some different travel dates – a shift of a few days either way can help you save big. Prices usually jump the weekends before and after popular holidays, so we recommend steering clear of them. Or consider visiting during the off-season, when prices are generally lower.

    Plan around big events

    Are prices surprisingly high? There might be a huge conference or festival in town. Consider shifting your dates if you can. Of course, if that’s why you’re going, you’ll have to bite the bullet. We’ll still work to get you the best rates out there.

    Noodle over new adventures

    Set aside time to plan what you want to see, taste and discover. Nothing completes a trip, big or small, like a few new experiences! Check city apps or area websites to find out what’s new and what events are happening during your stay. Even during a family reunion, you can detour to that locals-only fish taco stand or under-the-radar music club. Your cousins will be impressed.
