Location - our family of 3 was there for a wedding in Aptos and instead of staying at a rundown motel in the Santa Cruz area (where there are some great beaches), for the same price or less, we opted for the Watsonville Holiday Inn just a 15 min drive away. It is also just a 30 min drive to the Gilroy outlets. It's quiet, away from the main road. But also conveniently near stores (Target, etc) and some restaurants.
Room - we were given a (very clean) suite with a sofabed, TV, kitchenette, small breakfast area, separated from the bedroom with king-size bed, another TV and the bathroom. Free internet too.
Amenities - didn't use the pool but passed it and it seemed to be always busy with kids and parents. Did not get to use the fitness centre but appeared minimal and clean.
Breakfast - decent fare.
Front desk - efficient and friendly.
I would definitely stay here again. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
