Very nice weekend !
The Capitola Hotel was lovely, and the desk staff was very nice and helpful. She made sure I knew about parking (which is very limited in the Village) and that there is no one onsite at night, which really shouldn't be an issue. It's a very safe area. I stayed in the Grand Cayman room, which was tastefully decorated, has 2 comfy queen beds, a Kitchenette, the bathroom was nice, and it had a great little patio (the only room that has one I believe). I will definitely be back.
