"Wonderful Experience!"
Beautiful, clean and very friendly staff. Fantastic room. Great wine and cheese hour and delicious breakfast. Very quiet. Oldest standing building in Capitola, was the original railroad depot. Beautifully converted into a B & B keeping all the old charm. Rooms are some of the most beautifully appointed I've seen, and I'm an interior decorator. Will do this again!

"Different, quirky, a breath of fresh air"
This is a lovely place, a pretty group of buildings nestling under a cliff right in the middle of town. It's quiet (except for a few minutes on garbage collection morning!) and feels very secluded even though it's just 2 blocks from Highway 1 and a 15 minute stroll form either the wharf or downtown. We had the Tennyson Suite as this included a sofabed for the kids, and we were relieved it was above the lobby so that no other guests would be disturbed by the patter of not-so-tiny feet in the morning. Very comfortable and roomy, we all slept well. The kids loved playing in the garden and we enjoyed the aperitif (wine and simple snacks) each evening. Staff were lovely and very helpful. Lots of nice touches to make sure you enjoy Santa Cruz - maps, directions, restaurant recommendations and menus. We'd happily stay here again.

"One night in Santa Cruz"
We got there early, 1 pm- they wouldn't check us in but assured us we were in a first floor room and let us park our car in their lot so we could visit the Boardwalk, which was just a short walk away. When we returned they assigned us to a 2nd floor room even though we asked for a 1st floor room. After some discussion they finally put us in the first floor handicap room, which was fine with us. Other than that,the hotel was great and in my opinion much nicer than the pictures.

"Nice little spot. Cute and cottage like."
Cute place. Looks like renovations are going on. Clean and cottage like. About 10 minute drive to beach. Pool area is nice and relaxing. Wifi is spotty and breakfast was basic. But good enough for us. No ac in our room but it had a fan and we slept ok. Would stay here again.

"Perfect"
It was so clean and everything was perfect. All the stuff on the room were good. Floor was hardwood, bathroom had the granite. Just the room was small and it was good for one person and the price was high for Thursday night.

"Perfect spot!"
I chose the Casablanca for the reasonable rate and proximity to the beach, Boardwalk and Wharf....it exceeded all my expectations. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, there is a full kitchen if you want to cook, the balcony overlooked the ocean and action. I stopped to stay on my way home from my son's wedding for some much needed rest and relaxation after the perfect wedding weekend.....now I will go back every time I wind my way to Santa Cruz! All around favorite spot without a doubt....the staff is friendly, cheerful and helpful and the location couldn't be more ideal. Don't hesitate to choose Casablanca for a treat!
