We had a great stay. It is a very small hotel. The rooms are a little small but very cute. Good location to travel around the area. The breakfast was very good but again the room is very small, if you hit rush hour it's gets crowded with no place to sit.

This hotel is nice for a travelling family and perfect for a business traveller. Affordable, clean, updated and extremely comfortable beds. They breakfast was lacking, but the room more than made up for it.

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights on a 2 week road trip. We were wanting to visit Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay and this place was in the middle and in my budget! We got the suite which had 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms! Loved that! Wasn't the newest of hotels or in the newest neighborhood but... More

I have never stayed at a Best Western and I was pleasantly surprised. This hotel is very nice on the inside...clean, updated decor, comfortable. The breakfast was really good with an array of breakfast sandwiches that you heat up, waffle maker, cereal. yogurt, juice and coffee...more than most other places. The wifi worked great and the staff was very friendly... More

OK hotel, but some disturbing traffic noise. The sink on the rom was not working when we arrived. Was promised that it was supposed to be fixed within ½ hour. However, we need to contact them several times, and after 3 hours, it got fixed.

Sacramento was very hot, great escape going to the coast. It was the 4th of July, hotel was close to down town. The best place to eat was the Tamale House. A great variety of Tamales freshly made were a real treat. Also ate a Mike's Hot Dogs a real gem right on the main drag in the city.

Pool was under construction when we were there. Is next to a church/school that holds special events that have music that may keep you up a little later than you want. Brought a team in for one night and they set up a breakfast room for our team. That was nice, but it did not contain everything the regular breakfast... More

Best Western Watsonville, Ca was the central location for my parent's 73rd anniversary Sentimental Journey! The guest room was easily accessible for them, breakfast was made-to-order for their eating styles, the decor was like a tropical Mexican resort! All staff were friendly, courteous and helpful, especially Richard at the Front Desk! We WILL be back! Thank you all1

Compared to the outrageous summer prices of Santa Cruz, this Best Western is a bargain. But be careful about room location. The rear of the property, away from Freedom Blvd., contains a swimming pool. So that can be noisy if kids are staying there. The front of the property overlooks busy Freedom Blvd. with traffic and sirens at various times.... More

Near busy intersection. A lot of the traffic noise. Parking in main lot was full by late evening. No elevator. Breakfast was poor. Value was poor. Was just ok. I would want to hand around property. Staff was friendly.
