Very run down motel in uninspiring part of pretty uninspiring town. The room was large and the bed/TV etc were all fine, but it was very dirty. The shower was filthy, there was a blood stain on the wall and when my fiance washed her hands on our arrival and dried them on the hand towel, her hands reeked of... More

We live in the South Bay and the weather was so nice on Saturday, that we decided to spend the night in the area, so that we could go to the beach again on Sunday. The place is nothing special, but hey, for $60, that's all you can expect. We asked to be charged less and were given a price... More

As car-oriented travellers in the scenic Monterey Bay area, this little motel offered us a great budget alternative to the inflated accommodation prices around Monterey, Carmel, and Santa Cruz. For $70 we got a king bed room that would cost at least $130 in Monterey. Located just off highway 101 in Watsonville, we found we could use this place as... More
