Safe in Watsonville at night?

Traveling from Santa Cruz to Monterey. Needing a place in Santa Cruz but seems so expensive. Found Motel 6 in Watsonville for $95 a night - just need one night - expect to arrive late at night to Watsonville - probably about 10pm with a family with 2 kids. Is is safe in this area?

OH, especially since you are traveling to the motel at night you should get directions. I am assuming you will take the Hwy 152 exit from the freeway and then turn right at a major intersection, but I don't know which one.

The motel is not directly off a freeway exit. Be sure you know where to go.

Just chiming in that Watsonville for the night will be totally fine. And the Motel 6 is good - family and friends have stayed there when visiting. No, it isn't a tourist destination, and there aren't a lot of good restaurants or really any attractions - it is just a regular town without a lot going on, but it is absolutely fine to stay there for the night. I don't know where the "ewwww" comment came from. This is a much better choice than a night in a cheap motel in Santa Cruz, which truely could be be an "ewwww" experience.

I decided to call Motel 6 to get the directions so that I can give them out when people need them. So here they are.

Go south towards Watsonville on Highway 1. Take the Hwy 152/Gilroy exit. Turn right on Green Valley Road. As I remember this is the first major intersection, with traffic lights. You will see the motel sign about two blocks down. The address is 125 Silver Leaf Drive and the telphone number 831-728-4144

Petrra,

This thread is almost 5 years old. I would say to begin your own thread, except that Trip Advisor dos not support questions concerning re-location, only travel. You need a city information website.

Definitely the most boring town I have ever lived in, nothing to do but shop and buy possessions.
