Hotel Recommendations

Motels near Strawberry Jam Tournament

Holiday Inn Express
1855 Main St. Watsonville 95076

6 blocks from fields. Across from shopping center. Recommended.

Comfort Inn
112 Airport Blvd, Watsonville, CA 95076

About 1 mile from fields, not as well situated, might be noisy. Might be less expensive.

Best Western Seacliff Inn
7500 Old Dominion Ct., Aptos, CA 95003

Nice quiet garden motel about 10 minute drive from the fields. They advertise you can walk to the beach. If you plan to do that, have a backpack, granola bars and bottles of water for the hike. Good Restaurant on site and shopping mall nearby.

If you want to be nearer to Monterey, Pacific Grove, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Carmel, there are several large motels in the Marina-Seaside area, some out in the sand dunes close to the beach.
These are about a 25 minute freeway drive from our fields. Google “motels marina california” or “motels seaside california”. Marina is a few minutes closer.

I don’t recommend staying in Santa Cruz because of the traffic problems in Santa Cruz and on the highway at the top of the season. I don’t recommend Motel 6 in Watsonville.
