Definitely a great hotel. In fact, the nicest one I've stayed in all year. The accommodations are clean and attractive. The breakfast is complete with many options and all the food is fresh. The fitness room is small but everything was in working order. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would absolutely stay here again.

Clean and convenient for this visit. Adequate breakfast included. Seems some of the long stay folks forget they are staying with families and get a little too comfortable. One bit of advice tell the manager. They will take care of it. Otherwise convenient and walking distance to local restaurants. And access to freeway.

A very nice Hotel. It is clean and breakfast is good. The grounds were kept up. Lots of restaurants close by. Would stay again. The only problem we had was we asked for a ground floor and had to take 2nd floor ands there is no elevator.

Dear Indycargirl62, We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. However, I am very sorry we had to put you on the second floor. We had a few handicap requests that we couldn't modify. I do however want to let you know that we are adding more rooms with two queens on the first floor. We hope... More

I have stayed at the Rose Garden Inn, Watsonville for attendance and development of the Goat Hill Fair at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds every May and November since 2014 and can only rate the facility, staff and accomodations as excellent. Plan on returning twice each year for my stay while the show continues.

Nice place to stay in downtown Watsonville. Near shopping and restaurants. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was tidy and clean. With a desk and chair, and sofa and coffee table. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were all very firm. The hotel was full and parking was very cramped.

This is the second time I've stayed here and it is a nice motel. Clean, comfortable and close to downtown. Well appointed. A little close to neighboring properties but the smells of home cooking add a little charm to the atmosphere.

Lovely little hotel with a nice charm, helpful staff and comfortable rooms. COIN OPERATED LAUNDRY which was a bonus! Would stay there again. Very reasonable rate too. 2 nice Mexican restaurants close by to eat dinner at.

Family event brought us to Watsonville. Hotel is well maintained, with nice landscaping. Room comfortable with nicely done bath setup and surprisingly fridge, microwave etc. Small, imaculate pool, functional breakfast. Great value. Easy walk to downtown Watsonville, excellent small local eateries.

Very clean and comfortable. Well maintained rooms and grounds. Very nice pool and hot tub. The staff was great! I recommend this hotel! We injured our stay. Our room had a kitchen that was well stocked and large enough for our family.

My husband and I were on a one month road trip and had travelled late one night and decided it was time to pull over. When we used the GPS to find a hotel there was nothing close. It took us off the interstate quite a ways into a town called Watsonville. That's where we found this gem, at first... More
