We stayed here for 1 night passing through on our way down PCH (highway 1). We struggled to find anywhere with vacancy on a Saturday night so were very happy to come across this motel. It was clean & spacious. We were pleased it was an no smoking hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Overall it is what it says... More

Read reviews and took them all with a grain of salt. Staff was excellent, room was very clean, breakfast was basic but got you going, was easy to find on the main road and a short walk to 2 of the better restaurants in town. Didn't see where the bad reviews came from. I saw 6 work trucks parked there... More

My partner and I were in Watsonville for a family get together. We didn't think we'd need reservations, but it turned out that there was a huge annual antique fair happening that weekend,...And a huge annual festival in nearby Santa Cruz as well. All the hotels had jacked up their prices, and most were booked solid. After driving around stopping... More

I wasn't expecting a five star experience but overall I will say the staff was friendly, the room was clean, it did have a microwave and there was a free breakfast. Was there Egyptian cotton sheets? No. Was there a wonderful view? No. Was there an omelette chef at breakfast? No, and asides from cereal and pastries that was it.... More

Nice double queen room. Very clean and bright. Nice quiet room. Great value for a holiday weekend when you have made no reservations anywhere! Most places wanted over $200 for one night - lots of run down places wanted more than that! This was fine for the price.

You would be much better off paying an extra $20 to stay in a better location or better motel/hotel. I arrived at night, the street was was dark due to inadequate lighting. This place was not very easy to find as it was set back with very dark surroundings. It looked very run down from inside and out. My room... More

It was dirty , tv remote didn't work , the promised microwave didn't exist , it was loud and when I called in the morning to request a later... More

Friday night in Monterey, nothing to be found. Nearest was Watsonville, so we found ourselves at the Best Value Inn. Close to the road, lots of traffic noise. Comfortable bed. Clean room, funky shower head. A bit pricy to be calling itself a best value.

This motel represents reasonable value for money but the area is not particularly attractive. The room was quite well furnished, clean and large enough. Breakfast was of limited quality and choice but adequate. There are several diners nearby.
