We came here for a softball tournament. It's in a great location with everything near by. There's a Nob Hill right across the street, Cvs, Starbucks, Panda Express, Applebee's and much more so close. Beds were amazing so comfortable and pillows were great too, usually hotels pillows are awful. Clean hotel, could use a little updating in showers.

The HIE Watsonville met or exceeded what I have come to expect for this chair. Large breakfast area, immaculate pool area, fresh and plentiful food in the morning, and large clean rooms. This is definitely one of if not the best option in the area. Won't hesitate to stay again!

We really enjoyed staying here! The staff and front desk were very accommodating! The hotel is relatively small, but the pool and Jacuzzi ( 104 degrees) makes up for it! It is as perfect! The rooms are cozy and suites, so how can you go wrong! The beds are comfortable!

The standard rooms are on the small side but beds were comfortable. There was a microwave and refrigerator in the room. The air-conditioner was loud...

My family and I stayed 4 nights at this HI and it was very nice. The coffee for the keurig wasn't very good, that's the only thing I would change about the visit. (Hoping they switch brands soon as it's a company wide change)The check in was a breeze and the clerk was very helpful. The nature walk behind the...
