HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 June 2016

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...

Room is clean. The breakfast has a usual variety of items, such as boiled eggs, waffles, orange juice and etc. The room is decorated in Spanish style. The whole facility is kind of compacted. Easy to find local dinning places. Staff is polite and courteous.

We arrived Watsonville a little before 9pm after a long drive from Las Vegas and with a tired infant and ready to relax in our room for the weekend. To our surprise, they placed us in a room with very strong odor that smelled like floral chemicals. We noticed it immediately when we walked in. Basically if the smell was...

We booked here as it was a Priceline Express deal, and it meets the standards for this level of hotel, 2.5 stars. The beds were comfortable, the rooms very clean and roomy, and the staff friendly. The air conditioning/heating unit did not allow for a constant fan option, which would have been very helpful to drown out collateral noise. It...

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're sorry you had a negative experience with housekeeping staff. Another guest did mistakenly provide your room number while checking out. This happens regularly and is normally just a transposition of the numbers. Normally we catch these but this one slipped through the cracks. I do apologize and would like to assure you that check-out time is indeed Noon. We...

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.
