A lot of noisy people that week. Reception area was close before 6:30am. I was told the night before to come to reception to request an early breakfast pack to go. Rang the bell and knocked the door but no response. Great location but sadly not a good environment for me to come back.

While this hotel is not very big, it is the best choice in Watsonville by far. It is located right off highway 152, but is removed about half a block, so you don't hear any traffic noise. I stayed in the room directly above the office, and facing the street. The decor is reminiscent of a Spanish Villa with the... More

Dear Kevin M, Thank you for such a detailed review! We greatly appreciate it. Room 201 is definitely a little different shaped than the rest of our rooms due to our buildings design. What can we say it adds a little character! :) We inspect all our rooms randomly with a UV light as well to make sure that the... More

Stayed one night for business. Hotel is clean with pool and hot tub which I did not use. Beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was decent with some jimmy dean sandwiches that you could heat up in microwave, plenty of fruit, and a waffle making station that looked promising.

Not much to choose from in Watsonville, this is the best choice. The lobby is beautiful and landscaping is lovely. Stayed there 4 nights. There are 2 great restaurants within walking distance. Electrical outlets and out of date aluminum frame windows need to be updated for safety and noise control. Otherwise, this is a fine place.

We had a great room for five of us. Plenty of space with a full kitchen area and private entrance with enclosed patio. Breakfast is available from 7 to 10 AM and the pool & hot tub are open from 10 AM to 10 PM. Plenty of dining spots in the area. Not far from Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz.... More

We planned a trip to the Santa Cruz area to see family over Labor Day weekend. Of course, it being a holiday weekend, most of the hotel we looked at were nearly double their rate. The Best Western Rose Garden Inn was still reasonably priced for the holiday weekend. We arrived at 1am, which was no problem. There is someone... More

This was one of the best Best Western's we have ever stayed at. It was very very clean and all the employees were exceptional. We especially enjoyed the cleanliness of the room and the spaciousness of it. The breakfast was wonderful and even tho space in the eating area was limited, there were several choices found amid wonderful surroundings in... More

We stopped here as we were visiting family at Monterey but all the hotels there were full/expensive(due to the annual car show). The hotel was clean and tidy with helpul staff. They only had 4 safes and they were quite small but were free. The pool was small but the kids enjoyed it. Would recommend this hotel for a short... More

close to Monterey without the expense. Did overcharge us for the special event weekend, but that is to be expected from hotels. Breakfast was nice & hot. A/C did not work well at night, too much noise. Best iof the poor selection of hotels in Watsonville.
