Beds like cement, staff barely spoke English and room had dead bugs! It was $146 a night, way too much for quality! Our room was tucked around behind the office, maybe a former managers break room. We had to walk back out to the road and follow the sidewalk to a back garden gate to find our room. Kinda creepy!!

Stayed for 2 nights with family. Allocated big room with kitchen and private patio. The room is accessed by walking along sidewalk. Room is good size and comfortable. Breakfast is OK. Breakfast room is tiny and gets full very quickly. Pool and spa tub are small. It clean. All in all would stay here again. Good value overall.

We found the Best Western Rose Garden Inn to be a great location. It's very close to Monterey and Carmel and also Santa Cruz. The hotel had a nice swimming pool and hot tub. The breakfast was included and they had a lot of items to chose from. There were restaurants located within walking distance which was also a plus.

I love to stay here. It is close to Monterey, Santa Cruz, beaches and tons of nearby attractions. Reasonably priced and easy to find. Clean and comfortable. Great breakfast, wifi, pool and hot tub. I will be staying there again soon.

Rooms were clean, beds very comfortable, larger size refrigerator in room, pool was nothing fancy but kids and adults had a blast. Breakfast was more than we expected. Stayed for a baseball tournament and wouldn't hesitate staying again when in Watsonville

They ask you to move if they put a loud barking dog in the room next to you when you call the front desk to tell them about a noise issue after 10PM when they say it is supposed to be quiet time. We weren't causing the issue. Dogs should be muzzled if they want to let them stay on... More

Nice Hotel on busy street, No restaurant at hotel as listed. Rooms were neat and clean but no comfy chair for relaxing. Wood floors squeak so if you are rooming with a light sleeper you wake them up when you walk on the floor. Breakfast had good selection of items, including warm oatmeal in crockpot and breakfast sandwiches you could... More

I stayed here for a quick business trip. It's the Best Western quality that I count on - clean, well organized, nice staff. In addition, the tile work in the bathroom sink area was pretty and unique - nice touch.

A nice hotel, very comfortable (and quiet) for a couple of nights. Rooms a good size. Nice pool and hot tub. Breakfast pretty basic and breakfast room on the small size. A little off the main routes for the coast but pretty handy.
