Capri Motel

Nice place to stay! Friendly owners! Great :-}

Very nice and helpful & friendly couple who own the hotel had good coffee for us in the morning. Fantastic location! Two blocks from the Beach Boardwalk amusement park, and a few minutes' walk to the Santa Cruz pier, and walking distance to the main shopping / dining district of Pacific. All the rooms had no one above them (no stomping during sleeping hours!); there is a pleasant communal outdoor balcony seating area with many chairs overlooking both sides of the San Lorenzo River, which our bedroom also overlooked, although no one but us made use of it during our stay. Quiet, clean, amenities including soaps and hair washing sachets, new bathroom window to keep out noise, new showercurtain, microwave and refrigerator/freezer (!), much bigger than most Motel6's; great TV with lots of channels which we could watch from bed; desk, chair, two endtables, three occasional lamps, and °°° very important!*** comfortable new Serta bed (!). Really a great value for money, and the location was perfect! We plan to be back; thank you! :-D :-)
