I chose this hotel due to the noon checkout time because I was working a venue until late the night of my stay and was exhausted. Well the cleaning staff began pounding on my door shortly after 8 am and didn't stop. Eventually they let themselves in even though I had the "Do Not Disturb" hanger on my door. Then...

We stayed here twice this year and wouldn't hesitate to return. I first booked this hotel in January, when we had a horse riding trip planned at Mt. Madonna Stables, less than 30 mins away. Because of the rain and muddy trails, the horse riding trip was cancelled. But we kept the hotel reservation and drove over two hours for...

The motel is rather compact making parking difficult, but there is an overflow lot in the back. We like the location being close to Santa Cruz and Monterey. They allow pets so our dog can travel with us. The breakfast lacked any form of fruit, which was disappointing, though the chocolate muffins were a huge hit. My mother's accessible room...

The Best Western Rose Garden Inn, Watsonville CA is in a great location, except for parking. The staff is always very helpful and the amenities offered at the hotel are excellent. The little restaurant across the street does a good job, and you can be to almost any type of shopping desired within 5 minutes. I recommend you try the...

I never thought of staying in Watsonville before but it was MUCH cheaper than Monterey and coastal towns. And actually closer to our kayak outing on Elkhorn Slough Second queen bed was close to wall but that is MINOR. Nice to have sink outside room with toilet and bathtub.

This is our "go to" hotel while visiting family. They are pet friendly, which allows us to bring our dog. Even though the hotel is pet friendly, the rooms are still really clean! Their staff is very friendly, and always willing to help. Our extended family lives in the area, so we usually stay here between 6-8 times per year.

This was a clean, accommodating, comfortable stay. The two room suite was the perfect accommodations for our needs. The offer of sack breakfasts for the three of us was very handy since we had to leave before breakfast was open. The location was handy for restaurants and our destination. The facility is older so doesn't have an elevator. That may...

It was close to excellent restaurants, and the wifi was very fast and reliable. We were able to park close to our room, I enjoyed our morning breakfasts with fresh fruit, yogurt, and breakfast sandwiches Including a breakfast burrito. An important part of our choice was that this motel is pet friendly and accepted our little dog

No Welcome bag at check in (showed card) not told breakfast served and where room was. Cleaning help very nice and good. Want to know if extra points awarded. We use Best western for all our employees when out of town working and we always stay where our crew stays.

This was an older Best Western with some of the rooms being very nice. The first room we were given was nothing like the online Best Western photo and had an overwhelming odor of room freshener so I asked the front desk for a different room and they kindly obliged. The second room which was in the front (not the...
