We enjoyed our stay, and the hotel offered every amenity we needed for our one night stay. Comfortable room, nice pool, and enough breakfast items to satisfy all. About 20 min drive to Monterey area. Quiet area of downtown Watsonville with easy access to freeway. Small hotel area but facility was quiet. Breakfast room was small so got a bit... More

I brought my family with me. We had a great time. The room was spacious. The breakfast was good. Wish there was some kind of meat on the menu, though. The price was perfect. I would stay again. Unfortunately the Jacuzzi was not working.

Great place to stay. Wonderful breakfast. We were very happy with all aspects of the stay. Location and parking were not so good. Somewhat hard to find in downtown Watsonville, but once we sere there everything was fine. Would be happy to stay there again.

This hotel is on a very busy street so that noise is understandable and not extreme. Also not extreme but the noise (talking/working) from the hotels staff outside the room was unexpected and a little surprising and it could be improved on. I would stay at this location again just in a room away from the hotels in house laundry... More

Our highest priorities were met very well at this hotel. The bed was very comfortable. The room and all other areas were very clean and quiet, and the breakfast was great. We will definitely stay there again on future trips to the area. And based on the room rates in this area, the rate was a good value.

Dear Victor C, We appreciate your reviews and your recommendations you send our way. We're putting in a new bridge and were hoping for it to be done within the next few weeks.

Our Knight's Travel Baseball team stay at Best Western Rose Garden Inn in Watsonville, CA was the best choice for the players and us parents. We received a discounted rate, great service, clean rooms, nice breakfast and the boys had a blast in the pool and spa. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to my friends...

My son is a student at UCSC this year. We've tried a number of hotels as we explore the area. Best Western in Watsonville provides a more affordable option as hotels in Santa Cruz are quite expensive. There are a number of shopping centers nearby and it is a very easy to and from Santa Cruz.

Dear Patricia K, I am so happy we were able to accommodate you and your family. Santa Cruz does tend to be on the pricey side. Fortunately, we are only 15-20min away! We look forward to your return. Have a great day. Sincerely, Rachel C More

We were on our way home from San Diego with 2 small dogs and were only there for 1 night. The only problem we noted was the pet area designated on hotel property was about 4 x 4 in a back area where hotel "junk" was stored.

Dear Mary S, We had just finished repairing a window in that building and had the old window sitting in the pet area up against the wall. We're sorry if it got in the way of your pets trip to the pet area. Also, I was sure our pet area was slightly bigger than that so my maintenance guy walked... More

We requested an upstairs room but when we arrived we were told there were no upstairs room available. Since there were quite a few children attending a karate tournament, and upstairs would have been nice. Then, we were given a handicap room! I went and spoke to the receptionist (male) and he thought he was doing us a favor by... More
