“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful decor and cleanliness of the rooms. Staff was very friendly. Two room suite was excellent and we will definitely book this facility again when visiting in the area. Room rates were reasonable for what we required.

The hotel staff and environment definitely made our hotel stay memorable. Everyone was friendly. The rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast was very good - it offers a wide variety of food to start the guests' day. I love that parking and wi-fi are part of the room charges. The place is clean and it is close to restaurants. We love Best Western for the value that they offer.

Needed a place to stay over the weekend for a graduation at UC Santa Cruz over Father's Day weekend. Everything in Santa Cruz was either sold out or insanely priced. So happy the Rose Garden was available. Our first floor unit was clean, came well equipped with refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker, free wi-fii, as well as a generous assortment of towels and nice toiletries. Bed was pretty comfortable. There was a continental breakfast offered in the price. Front desk staff was extremely helpfull and friendly. Nice quiet room. Would have no problem staying here again.

Clean and great price, They have breakfast and a decent variety of food. They are very nice, as soon as we needed towels or anything they came right away. Its also in a great location. Their gym is a bit small I hoped they had an elliptical but they do not. Hopefully in the near future they have one. Overall hotel experience was great.

Nice little Hotel minutes from the beach. Nice heated pool and hot tub. Have a good selection at the breakfast bar. Modern rooms with high speed internet and they are pet friendly. Nice jump off point for Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and the whole bay.

I didn't want to stay here after driving through the area, I was tired from being on the road for three days and we were at the end of a long day in Monterey. I asked if we could cancel our reservation which was silly because it was that night. The woman that was working the desk was really sweet and helpful and wasn't fazed by my crabbiness. She said since I was a best western member my room had been upgraded to a two bedroom sweet. Inside the room it was lovely, and the beds were a king and queen and the room was very clean. The floors were clean and the tile grout in both bathrooms was clean and it smelled good. The beds were very comfortable and I ended up loving the room. We went on a 6 day, 5 hotel trip up the coast and this was my favorite room. The breakfast was fun and easy to get in and out and of course it was free, who can complain about that? I'd stay here again. Our room key didn't work after breakfast, before we could check out so we had it re-programed, three times. It never did work and the staff was unable to use a master key of any type. The maintenance crew came up and crawled around on the ground putting what looked like a giant hanger under the door to manually open it from the inside handle. They didn't leave until we checked out the room to make sure no funny business had occurred and everything was fine. I'd still stay here.

Kelley S,

I am so happy you found our facility to be a "treasure". After a long trip like that I would be tired too but I am glad you were able to enjoy the perks of being a Best Western Member with your free upgrade. I do want to apologize for the door. After you checked out we did replace it and send that door lock to be repaired.

We do hope you will consider being our guest again on your next trip to the area.

Have a great day,

Rachel C

I stayed here because it was a pet friendly Inn. I discovered a hidden gem in Watsonville, CA Close to both Monterey and Santa Cruz. It was like the small boutique hotels I have stayed in San Francisco and Europe without the cost. I would definitely stay here again. Quiet, clean and with all the amenities that the higher priced hotels would have!
