“Nice, clean hotel in central location”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I stayed here two nights with my one year daughter and my husband on a business/ family trip. During the day my husband had to work in Watsonville and I traveled to Santa Cruz and Monterey with my daughter. The hotel is clean and they offer friendly and fast service. However, the location seemed a bit sketchy. The rooms are a decent size, but they got very humid for some reason. As you walk past most of the rooms you can see the windows get very fogged up. May have something to do with the insulation. The people next door to us were very loud and we could hear them perfectly, as if they were in the room with us, so that was kind of a con. Overall, it was a pleasant stay centrally located between two great destinations!

Nice rooms, helpful staff. Parking can be a challenge but good hotel with central location. There is a restaurant across the street that is open late and good food. Staff is very attentive. They have a nice breakfast available as well.

The room was big & spacious, beds were comfortable but the breakfast room was too small & crammed. The amenities were great. Check in/out was quick & easy. Neighborhood was not that great. Free parking & free internet was provided.

Arriving from Europe, I was looking for a place while I had no reservation and I came through this Best Western in Watsonville. In a few minutes I was given a quiet and nice room. It looks more like an American motel than a modern hotel. The breakfast was self-service. The overall was perfect for a business traveller.

This experience was better than my experiences in Petaluma or Rohnert Park Best Western Inns. The staff is proficient from front desk to housekeeping, rooms are clean and very comfortable. For a in town location pretty quiet overall.

clean and quite room. Good breakfast, high speed internet and free parking. If you plan to spend time in Santa Cruz or Monterey area for a nigh or two, this hotel provides good value for a family trip.

I stayed here two nights and was very happy with the stay. The room was fairly large, the refrigerator was clean and cold. I never heard a sound from the outside except for an ambulance. Staff were responsive and pleasant which helps when you come off a 400 mile drive. The lot the motel is on is somewhat cramped which makes getting in and out of the parking lot less than ideal but even with a full-size pickup, I didn't really have a problem getting into the parking spaces.
