When you stay halfway between Santa Cruz and Monterey, you get the finest of both worlds. Delight in everything these two cities have to offer, but away from the hustle and bustle. Guests can slip away to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the Monterey Aquarium, or linger only 5 miles away at Sunset Beach, where golden sands and fabulous outdoor recreation are on hand. We are also minutes from Elkhorn Slough, a haven for birding enthusiasts the world over. We cater to road trippers, vacationing families and business travelers that desire affordable elegance. Whether you're here for the Wharf to Wharf Race or a meeting with Granite Rock, staying at the right Watsonville hotel will make a difference. If you're in the area for the Strawberry, Artichoke or Garlic Festivals, you're in for a real treat. Renowned Martinelli's Sparkling Cider is produced locally, and a tour of the factory is a must stop for all guests. Gilroy Gardens and the Monterey Bay Birding Festival are also nearby favorites. An independent local poll rated us 'Best of the Pajaro Valley', the surrounding area's most revered hotel. You'll enjoy spacious rooms, luxurious bedding and a full array of amenities, including complimentary WiFi and an expanded continental breakfast. Need suggestions on things to do or places to dine?
