A personal experience with more than adequate "continental breakfast" on grounds with lush gardens. Room is small, a bit stuffy and somewhat outdated but clean and comfortable. While the breakfast was advertised as continental, it included make-your-won waffles, fresh hand fruit, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, and egg/cheese/meat breakfast sandwiches to heat up: more than expected!

While traveling for work purposes, made a reservation at this Best Western. It is one of the cutest Best Westerns I have ever stayed in. The grounds are well kept and the lay out is nice. The room was good size and well decorated. The bathroom sink bowl was unique and the walk in shower was also good size. The... More

Newly remodeled. It was very clean and the decor was lovely. I especially like the tile work and the hand painted flowers in the sink. Walls were freshly painted. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Excellent restaurant options within walking distance.

Located in a small town, Watsonville, this hotel offers a quality stay with reasonable fair. It is a good choice to visit Monterey Bay area. The breakfast is good, and the in-room Wi-Fi is Ok. It took us about 20 minutes' drive to Monterey Bay Aquarium and 17 miles drive.

We came to visit Santa Cruz and chose to stay here because of the great room price. Everything was very nice and comfortable. I absolutely loved the hot tub and my son loved the pool. The front desk people were also so very nice and friendly and I loved the warm fresh chocolate chip cookies they put out. The morning... More

Watsonville is not a "destination" but a good place to stop after a long ride on the motorcycle on our way to Morro Bay. The room was fine and we were happy to get ground level as requested. The surprise was a little kitchenette inside! It was VERY cramped quarters in the bathroom and the shower is extremely tight. My... More

Lovely hotel with comfortable room and breakfast. Only a one night stay, so didn't take advantage of the pool and jacuzzi. Breakfast was very good. The location of the hotel was in a quiet area of town and easy to access. If I'm ever in the area again, I will stay at the Rose Garden Inn.

My family and I (2 adults, 1 child) stayed here for two nights (Friday and Saturday). Check-in was fast and easy, front desk agent was friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 218, which is facing the parking lot in between the front office and the pool. Super quiet. Never heard noise from the rooms next to us, the street... More

We stayed here for three nights on the way from San Francisco to LA, so we could do the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and also Monterey. It's a good central location between the two. It was a very nice room. There was a fireplace, a spa tub, and a pull-out couch bed for the kids. The rooms and the whole... More
