A really nice stay. Good breakfast, including eggs and sausage if you wanted it. Big rooms that have been renovated. No chemical smells or odors of any kind in the room. Easy to find channels on TV. No elevator for the second floor so be sure and get ground floor if you need it. Quiet, must be well insulated as...

Needed a reasonably priced place to stay for one night so I would not have to drive back over the summit after a late night with my young son. I got a GREAT rate off of Trip Advisor for this place and booked it. It was easy to find and the staff was really nice. The room was clean, however...

My wife and I stayed here in October of 2016 and were happy to come back in March of 2017, I have family in San Jose and Watsonville so this was a great location for us. Very clean, my wife was pleased how clean the room and grounds were.

Our room was in the back on the third floor. The room was spacious with all the usual amenities. Our host was very friendly. The continental breakfast included eggs and sausage. The street was very busy but we weren't at all close to it. There were restaurants nearby.

Great value for the price. Room was perfectly fine, standard for a quality inn. Stayed for 2 nights on a holiday weekend. It was quiet, even though it filled up quite a bit the second night. Hotel runs perpendicular to the street, so parking and rooms are pretty far back from traffic and kind of hidden. Usually like to stay...

Straightforward, pleasant, and helpful in picking local establishments and routes. Room was well above expectations! If I was to nitpick, the pancakes at the breakfast buffet looked a bit sad, but everything else was fantastic!
