I booked this hotel not having any idea about it, but needed a place in this general area. Upon my arrival they had my reservation all set and gave me a nice room overlooking the wetland in behind. Listening to the sounds at night from the wetland reminded me of home. The little gift bag you get when checking in... More

My husband and I stayed here a few weeks ago for a family get together. The whole family met and stayed at the hotel and the experience was wonderful. The breakfast was fantastic, everything was fresh and hot. Check in was quick and right after we got to our room they called to see if everything was satisfactory. All of... More

We have stayed here several days, changing our plans several times. The staff - reception, housekeeping, and maintenance - were all very friendly and very helpful. Unlike many motels of the same brand, the room layout here is very comfortable, easy to navigate, and very useful when preparing food in the room.

I stayed there last weekend. Overall a good stay. It was the worst Holiday Inn I have ever stayed at. The breakfast was subpar and costco-ish. They kept running out of hot items and their coffee was horrible. The staff was friendly overall, except for one woman who was not friendly. She asked me for ID for my service animal... More

TamPro1, I am sorry for the way one of my team members spoke with you; it is not our policy to ask for service animal identification. I will be completing a re-training of all team members this week. As far as the breakfast not being up to your standard I hope that you will try us again in May! All... More

The room was great, we upgraded to the jacuzzi room and it was fab. Everything was clean and updated, the gym served it's purposes and I wish I brought my bathing suit because the pool looked great! Lastly, everyone at the front desk was super helpful and friendly and you could just overall tell it's a well run place. Would... More

Stayed at Holiday Inn Express because my house was being treated for water damage...not the best of circumstances. But the hotel did the trick...comfortable, clean, quiet, reasonable, convenient for making trips back to my house to see what was happening. Plus the hot breakfast, a nice pool, aerobic machines and free parking were great additions.

In town for a funeral, great stay in a double suite; not huge, but the extra room with a door allowed people to use the desk and/or tv while others slept. Weird that paper dishes were provided along with a tiny bottle of Palmolive dish detergent in the kitchenette; how do you wash paper plates? Very clean, decent breakfast; motel... More

Stayed there last year and it was really good, this time was no different. It may not be a five star luxury hotel but don't tell them that.

Not many people find themselves in Watsonville but the holiday inn express is the place to stay. Surrounded by places to eat and shop, this hotel is convenient and friendly. Target is close and it's in a popular part of town.
