Our stay was very pleasant. You get what you pay for but that is a good thing in this case. We weren't expecting luxury, we were expecting a good stay for our family, especially since we were all staying for 3 nights and that is what we got. The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable and amenities were sufficient (microwave... More

The Best Western Rose Garden Inn in Watsonville is a nice hotel. It is centrally located and has a very functional breakfast buffet. Across the street is a nice little restaurant and there are several fast food places a short distance away. Parking can be challenging here, but the staff is always friendly and upbeat.

Motel nicely renovated. We were in the back where it was dangerous getting out onto the street, cars parked on either side of the entrance, so hard to see oncoming traffic. Room was so noisy until 2:00 a.m. and as early as 5:00 a.m. that we could not sleep. Left about 6:00 a.m., which was too early for free breakfast.... More

Spent a nice, relaxing weekend in Watsonville and Salinas. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and will definitely be coming back for another stay with family and friends. Annie was very nice and helpful checking us in and checking us out. The room was clean and I especially liked the whirlpool.

We had a great stay at this hotel. The beds were comfortable, they allowed pets and had a good variety of breakfast items in the morning. All in all it was a good one night stay. We'll definitely be back.Thanks BW.

My second stay at this property. Positives: GREAT bed! Other amenities are adequate. Breakfast could have longer hours. Coffee in lounge is nice. Very frustrated that they did NOT clean my room on July 3. While I was out of the room between 8;30 am and 4:30 pm, they left a note saying they wanted to give staff a break... More

I've been stay in this hotel for the past 8 months, everything has been excellent until someone decided to change the breakfast service time. Usually it was available around 6:30am however they changed it to start at 7am which it is unacceptable specially for the business people that need to work early. Management must consider returning back to the original... More

Hello! We're sorry for the confusion. Our official breakfast times have always been from 7-10am. We do offer Grab n' Go breakfast bags at the front desk for guests who will be leaving us earlier than 7:00. Just let the front desk know the night before if you would like to customize which items are placed inside! More

We stayed here twice this year and wouldn't hesitate to return. I first booked this hotel in January, when we had a horse riding trip planned at Mt. Madonna Stables, less than 30 mins away. Because of the rain and muddy trails, the horse riding trip was cancelled. But we kept the hotel reservation and drove over two hours for... More

The setting and grounds are attractive, Our family suite with 2 bedrooms worked well for 2 teenagers. Friendliness of staff could be improved. Stairs and railings were sticky and had spills over the three days we were there. Breakfast offered a good variety of choices, but only one day out of three was a water pitcher provided.
