Very inexpensive. Room was spacious and clean. Decor adequate and in good condition. Hall doorways looked pretty old and beaten up. Bed and pillows comfortable, but we needed another pillow -- only 3 small ones for a king sized bed. Bottom sheet kept sliding off plastic mattress pad. Large TV, but we couldn't get it to work. Had a hard time finding at night, because it is barely lit and set way back in an industrial area.

I wish to rate it 0. Uncalled for the front desk treated me and my friend. His name is OM. When we arrived he wasn’t smiling. I show the email reservation and he was talking I couldn’t understand because I’m deaf. I ask him to write he wasn’t thrilled but write then kept talking. Hand me form to fill out he said not you, your husband. This form is “credit card authorization form. I said he’s not here then he ask for his email. I FaceTime my husband and explained. He calked front desk. Then front desk hang up on my husband when he wasn’t finish talking. I look at front desk told him you hang up on my husband he wasn’t finish talking. He just stare at me pretty long. My husband ask me to show him what front desk look like so I flipped the cam to show. Front desk thought i was doing something he got up grab the paper from window and shove it to my face and mumbling that i cant see his face behind paper to read his lip. He marked the paper state it has to be filled in person. Really? He find a loophole to make excuse not let us have the room. Took a while to finally get a room. This is called deaf discrimination right there! I told my husband to report to Choice hotel. I was shock to see he was holding a paper that was make copy of someone driver license and credit card. Front desk had my husband to send pictures of his license and credit card. I don’t trust him or his hotel….period!

The Rodeway Inn of Watsonville was everything we needed; clean room, spacious beds, cold fridge, and secure location. This hotel is right off the freeway and down the street from a gas station that has hot food items and drinks. The staff at this location was very friendly and made sure my requests were met. I would definitely stay here again.

Visiting family from NC and stayed here for a few nights. Nice stay. Felt safe and the hotel was clean. I would definitely stay here again if I’m ever back in the area. Close to restaurants and stores in the area.

First, I want to say I have stayed here at least 10 times in the last 4 years. The new manager is much more polite than the previous one. A light bulb was burnt out when I arrived. The manager was very polite about it, the next business day it was replaced. When you read the other reviews, remember your paying close to half the price of the famous named hotels. Yes, the breakfast is basic but honestly do you think you would get a full meal for this price plus a room? Take your family out for a nice meal then look at the price for just food? Chances are your paying more for that meal than a stay here. Also you get a microwave and refrigerator. Around this area you are not promised a refrigerator and microwave or even internet access for free. The area has its pros and cons. The pros is that it is so far from stores and other hotels that your less likely to get drifters looking at your car etc. The con is you do need to drive to places to shop or eat dinner. I would suggest to try it and say hi or good morning to the staff. They are human too.

Location was horrible. I finally found it from the freeway, no signage at exit, and had to go a mile or more past hotel sighting to turn around. Arrial was on a dead end street and into a trucking lot, scary. Nine pm arrival and gal at front was friendly. Room was ok and clean, but kind of old. Breakfast was next to nothing, not replenished and had to ask for the coffee. Again, it was clean, but creepy. When I saw the outside in the daylight, I knew I'd never go back.

This hotel has seen better days. The rooms are old and antiquated. Internet works very slow. The breakfast is 1 Star at best. Front desk service was very slow and tedious. Not with the $80 they charged.

I chose this place for one night stay before kids event. I liked their basic free breakfast, which consisted of cereal, oatmeal, danishes, coffee, juice, milk. The room was clean but was showing its age. Bed was somewhat harder than I'm used to. Walls are thin... we could hear next door talking through the wall. Window can open so can cool the room, but one side is on freeway side and can have noise. Small Fridge in room. This is a no frills place that is functional, for relaxing and sleeping.

Room Tip: choose a room away from the freeway if noise bothers you, or you keep windows open for fresh air....
