Flying from the east coast on an overnight flight with final destination being Ventana in Big Sur, we wanted a place to crash after arriving at SFO. We booked this hotel online based on a careful weighing of location, free parking, decor, and reviews. As we pulled into the hotel parking garage we noticed a man rando milling about-which is...

I’ve stayed in several HI Express hotels and this is below the average level. Breakfast is just fine, a small room with few tables and few options to select (less than the typical HI Express breakfast). The room is standard with a good bed, but the AC was very noisy so I had to turn it off at night. The... More

The hotel is undergoing remodelling, and you know it - but it's pretty good even so. The thing that makes it so though is the people. Hotels in Peninsula cities sometimes struggle with this, but not here. Everyone is warm and cheerful - particularly the lovely lady in charge of the breakfast room - I'm sure the management know this,... More

This hotel was just OK. Not more, but also not less. Room size is decent, and the room was very clean (important!). There were enough towels in the bathroom, and I could see the touch of housekeeping every day. There is no safe in the room – not good. However, breakfast was poor, with no fresh fruits but oranges (7... More

This is a great place to stay. From housekeepers to breakfast providers to front office officials, the staff is efficient and friendly. The location is easily accessible as well. I have stayed many times and always anticipate returning.

The room was ok. The breakfast was so-so. The one in Watsonville had better choices. The surroundings around the hotel were ok. Busses and Caltrain are close and convenient. I know there are many high tech in RWC but to pay $161 plus fees was a tad high.

Stayed here while visiting family in the area. We had requested a two bed room but one was not available the night we checked in but they found one next day and moved us promptly. Friendly staff. Very good complimentary breakfast.
