Cheap rooms and worse management
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Avoid this place! We had the Portofino room which is supposed to include a private hot tub but the hot tub didn't work. They tried what the could but couldn't get it working. Without the tub it was a basic room with a wobbly bed, bad pillows, and a subpar shower. The happy hour and breakfast were nice but nothing extravagant which at $300+ a night I expect extravagant. For our troubles we were offered a discount on a future visit but turned it down because we have no interest in staying there again.

Management sent an email saying they would have helped if we told them of the issues the day we arrived... Which we did within the hour of being in the room. Very convenient for them to pretend like they would have helped after the fact when they had the opportunity to do so and didn't.

Wonderful Overnight
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We stayed here for a night and really enjoyed ourselves. Nicholas was working the front desk, and he was so friendly and helpful. We liked staying in Capitola, close to Santa Cruz,
but a million miles away. The Inn is a quick walk to the beach, downtown or Gayle’s Bakery.
We felt pampered with the wine and cheese, breakfast was offered, the room was big, pretty, clean and felt luxurious. We could sit outside our room or outside in a common area.
I would stay here again and recommend it anyone wanting a comfortable coastal getaway spot.

Pampered Perfection
Reviewed 3 months ago

After learning of this gem in Capitola from a friend’s Facebook post, I booked the Delft Suite for my husband’s and my anniversary. Because we booked on a Monday during “off season,” we benefited from a 40% discount. We arrived before check-in, and were graciously greeted and given a tour of the premises on the way to our suite, which was gorgeous, spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. When it came time for wine and cheese hour, we received a call from the front desk offering a tray to be delivered to our suite since the occupancy for that night was low. Not only did he deliver a full tray of cheese, crackers, veggies, hummus, grapes and nuts, he brought a whole bottle of wine for us to enjoy since it was our anniversary. Mind you, this was complimentary and unsolicited! Transportation to and from our anniversary dinner at Shadowbrook was arranged and breakfast was delivered to our room the following morning at a prearranged time. The bed was very comfortable and the sitting area allowed plenty of room for me to read near the fireplace and for my husband to stretch out on the chaise and nap. It was ultimate comfort, beauty and service! We are seasoned B and B travelers and this experience ranked at the top. We will be back, for sure{

Last day of Honeymoon Roadtrip
Reviewed 4 months ago

We had an amazing time in northern California on the last day of our cross country road trip, and our stay at Depot Hill made our time all the better. We were greeted with wine, cheese, and a warm smile. We were brought to a gorgeous room where everything was clean and beautiful. We enjoyed breakfast for both nights we were there, and couldn't have been happier with the taste and quality.
