The hosts were wonderful! We loved our experience at the Inn.
Warm, friendly feel. Very welcoming hosts. Very comfortable and happy stay. Absolutely nothing.
The linens were fabulous and the spa tub in our king suite got nice and hot. Complimentary booze and sodas! The inn is located in a residential area with lots of barking dogs and skateboarding teenagers (not incessant, but frequent enough to be annoying.)
The proprietors are extremely nice and very helpful. The friendliness not just of the owners but other guests was very welcoming. The complimentary nibbles and wine made you feel at home. The breakfast was also excellent. The room was a little on the small side
I liked the location the best. The Superior King room was huge and very clean. The hotel was one block off of Ocean Ave. and all the shops Restaurants were all within walking distance even for me with a bad knee. Not the best hotel for handicap people lots of stairs no elevators
Loved location and spacious room with good view. Bathroom was nice with both great bath and shower.
The staff was very friendly. Upon arriving (before standard check-in time) we were told our room was being cleaned right then and we were able to utilize it right away, two hours early. The room was clean and the area quiet. Free parking and wi-fi. Excellent location overall, close to the aquarium, but not really walking distance with young children. It wasn't quite as "walking distance" as we would have liked. That's more our lack of knowledge of the area. The bed was quite firm and slightly uncomfortable.
Great hotel, beautiful room, highly suggest the fireplace, great location, a few blocks from everything and a great price Sure the breakfast room was a little cramped, but no where near as bad as everyone makes it out to be, I went on a holiday and I was still able to easily get my food
Friendly staff. Cleanliness
Fairly quiet. Proximity to anything you need was great.
Clean, good size rooms, friendly staff overall good, a bit dated room breakfast room was very small staff worked hard to keep full though coffee was luke warm Tv was small and pretty old
The rooms were a good size and the cleanliness was very good, location was pretty good, and the the breakfast was tasty and the breakfast room was kinda cramped. The walls were thin, even as hotels go and beds were really hard, and two of the four staff members that we interacted with were pretty rude
You get what you pay for. Dirty, parking difficult, bad area of town and wouldn't give more than one star. Inexpensive.
clean room . the bed is outt of it service life. it was sunk in the middle.
As the title says, best value for the money you pay. Room was small but clean. Bed was comfortable. Everything you need was there and well-maintained. Plenty of good restaurants and stores nearby. Nothing really.
Clean and Quiet. Efficient and Courteous Staff. Very Cramped Parking.
Nice,respectful and very helpful staff
The interior look was nice, if you enjoy the Mexican theme which I do. The breakfast area was small but nice and had a decent array of microwaveable breakfast foods as well as yogurt and waffles. The faucet wasn't installed properly on the sink and the one for the tub was a bit strange and didn't work properly. The beds are horrendous when it comes to comfort. I woke up with a horrific headache due to the beds being so hard and uncomfortable. Oh and the guy at the front desk tried to charge me twice for my room.
Quick check in, available parking, comfortable bed and complimentary breakfast.
The staff was so awesome. Every little thing we needed, they seemed actually happy to supply. It was clean. Breakfast was good. The pool and hot tub are small but totally adequate. We will definitely be back! It isn't down at Cannery Row but once you know where you're going it only takes 10 minutes to get to and from.
Good amount of parking and a clean room with inside (hallway) access. Our larger room with a single queen, couch and desk was a good choice and came with a microwave, small fridge and safe. Don't expect views or character here, just a good hotel room with a comfy bed and room to rest/recline after a long day. Rooms are not very well insulated, so noisy neighbors are easily heard. This is OK most of the time until their are screaming children or reveling partiers.
Can hear next room neighbors
Very friendly environment for sure! Great staff ! And Great service have nothing bad to say and next time I go to monterey I will book here again no problem
Easy access and parking. Breakfast was nice but not great. Clean and fine for families. Pool was cold. Noise from road.
This hotel is in keeping with Best Westerns standard for clean, well kept facilities with accommodating staff. The only complaint I have is we could hear the conversations in the adjoining room as if there was no door.
The price, clean room. Road noise. Staff not very helpfull.
Staff were nice The bed sloped to one side.
Value - price of a clean room was cheaper than nearby unclean motels, also that it included wifi, 25 inch tv with approx 35 channels including 3 HBOs, shampoo (forgot mine) micro and fridge Prefer more tv channels, basic cable has like 80 channels even if no hbo. Channels like wgn, spike, versus, etc.
It was near the beach Just about everything! Our door wouldnt stay shut unless we were inside and the door was locked. Intried to tell the manager but he didnt speak very mich english so he didnt understand and just gave me another key!! Never stayi g here again!
I was able to check in early and go directly to my conference coming back later for the actual stay even though my roommate got sick and couldn't make it A wee bit hard to get to if coming from in town
I left things including jewlrey in the room. when I sent a prepaid UPS box everything I left was there. The staff makes a great effort. I compliment them. Location...but it is what it is for the price...
Motel was great, flat screen television, comfortable, clean bed. Internet was free but a bit spotty and slow. There is street noise but the tv drowned it out.
Lots of street noise.
Cleanliness of the room was a plus! Very easy and comfortable place to stay... minutes from Asilomar Beach. Complimentary breakfast was meager, and by 8:30 AM, most things were out and needed to be replenished. Staff probably would have replenished, but a little bit of spilled syrup on the floor disrupted their attention to customer service. Several guests (including me) stood around, hoping that they'd restock the breakfast area, but they never did as they scurried (somewhat senselessly) to find someone to mop the floor. They could easily have attended to their guests on hand at the same time.
convenient location the unit had a gas leak and we woke up at 3am with a headache, they changed the room in the middle of the night, but it was a huge inconvenience, the new room the heater didnt work well
Clean, convenient, affordable, friendly, quiet. It's no longer the Vagabond. It's the Munras Inn. That was pretty confusing! The free "breakfast" is not real. It's a 7-11 pastry, Sunny Delight (which is a soft drink), and a piece of fruit.
Very pleased overall Near perfect...didn't like the pillows but my son loved em. Limited channel selection on tv
Clean room, everything works, nice fireplace, close to downtown, courteous & helpful staff, great value Parking spaces are adequate but a bit tight
spacious rooms, very clean, friendly staff
Location to area attractions. The beds were tooooooo firm and not very comfortable.
employees were friendly,nice location,and David Doty was really helpful even though i arrived at 2:00 a.m. n/a
Clean, reasonable priced rooms
Spacious room, comfortable beds and the convenience of a dining table and chairs. We appreciated being allocated a quiet room, away from the busy road.
Excellent value for money. Located close to a large shopping centre with restaurants and cinemas. Only a couple of minutes drive (or possible to walk) to the centre of town and the wharf. Large rooms. Basic breakfast. Free parking. Good base for exploring Monterey,Carmel etc. Check in staff were not overly welcoming.
the things we didn't like was the carpet in the room ... waso ld and not too much clean and there was not a room for having the breakfast.
Very clean room, and good value for the dollar There wasn't anything that I did not like about the room
Clean rooms; free parking and the room was large enough. Swimming pool could have been heated in the cold Montery climate. Breakfast could have included a couple of more items.
Breakfast and staff friendiliness
Meticulously clean. Nice and comfortable. Great value for money. Too far away from Cannery Row.
Easy to locate. Close to amenities. Helpful and friendly staff. Very clean room with plenty of amenities including coffee maker. Juice, fruit, coffee and danish for breakfast included in the price. Very pleasant stay.
The hotel was very clean, with nice ammenities in the room, e.g. granite countertops in the bathroom, etc. The location is great as it is a nice walk to Fisherman's Warf. All-in-all, a great value. I would highly recommend this hotel!
The room was renovated very nicely. Did not expect an older hotel like this to be so nice! The room was also clean and roomy. No bad point but would recommend a non-slip surface in the shower.
Clean rooms and good lokacion nice staff
super friendly staff lack of paper goods in the room when we arrived, little toilet paper on the roll and only one tissue left in the container
Value for money. Small, but warm pool. Not far from ocean (2-3 km). Close to highway, but quiet. Very poor breakfast.
Nothing Everything, rude rude rude manager and very dirty and daited, maids were super loud , never stay there again. Worst place we've ever stayed at. I can't believe there are decent reviews of this dump!!!!!!
The man that checked us in was very helpful. He let us know about the special package they offered for the Aquarium. Another worker told my boyfriend to put out his cigatette when he was outside. We wete aware that all of the rooms were non-smoking but didn't understand why he coyldn't smoke outside.
Our hotel room was very clean and neat, late arrival was not a problem, and it is partially renovated. We skipped the breakfast though, so I don't know about that. The town center is a 5 minute drive, or a nice walk from the hotel. Overall, great value for money. I would be happy to stay here again.
Easy check in & nice staff. Nothing fancy. Bed was comfortable & room was clean but no air conditioner just a fan which was ok since it wasn't too warm. The breakfast area is in the lobby and was so crowded with no place to sit. Had to dodge many people just to get a bowl of cereal!!
Staff members were very warm and welcoming and the free breakfast was better than similarly-priced hotels, offering cereal, mini muffins, fruit coffee and even (really good) do-it-yourself waffles. Our room came standard with an extremely large king-sized bed. An added bonus was the mini fridge - great for keeping our camping groceries cold as we traveled through California. Only real downside was that while taking a shower, I noticed that there were stray hairs on one of the walls - remnants from the previous guest(s). Not a huge deal to us as the rest of the room was spotless and we were staying less than 24h, but a bit off-putting nonetheless.
Great location, decent hotel for the price The floors didn't seem like they were vacummed.
Location is convenient close to frreeway access, fisherman wharf, and shopping malls. Check in was done rather quickly. When we needed assistant, Inn staff was quickly to respond. Our bathroom door was not able to close, lock was not usable, and the heater/cooler was not working. There was a video tape player but was not working. No dvd player to use.
I liked the price. Location not bad. Breakfast was hour later than stated at check in. Nothing made this place stick out. It's just a place to sleep. Will stay elsewhere next time.
Clean, sizable. Good location for quick access to downtown Monterey, Carmel-by-the-sea, Big Sur, etc. The internet was surprisingly fast, and free! The microwave and fridge were also quite convenient. Noise was the biggest issue: the ceilings creaked a lot every time the people above us moved around. It felt like we could hear everything they were doing. If you're thinking about staying here, definitely try and get a 2nd-floor room. Since our room was very near a busy street, we also heard a lot of noise from traffic and passing cars.
Did not feel safe there. The bed spread and drapes were dirty, no place to plug in coffe maker, lamp was broken and other lamps had missing light bulbs. Bathroom had malfunctioning shower head and tub mat not clean. Continental breakfast was not very healthy.
I really liked that their was breakfast in the morning. That the room was clean and that the pool was near the room. I really enjoyed all the plants outside and the balcony. I did not like that when we got their late they were very few options on where to dine and that our heater wasn't working.
Nice room, close to everything None
Very convenient for getting to downtown Monterey or Carmel. Spacious bathroom and great value for the money.
Staff was awesome, helpful and attentive. Close enough to enjoy walks and wharf Staff tried diligently to make amends for noise and interuptions by other guests, but it was too late, damage done OMG, warming up LOUD work trucks @ 5am.....only to be turned off and restarted 15 minutes later. It's 55 degrees, what needs warming up for so irresponsibly LONG? Stayed on ground floor by request, we have a toddler! Only to have Paul Bunyan checked in upstairs from us, with constant pacing from 8p-11p. Real smart front desk work?! Large window to front of our room had broken glass, ripped molding and looked as though somebody wanted in, other than door. a bit scary
Great stay all in all. Unfortunately , noisy foot traffic outside my door.
The hotel was not clean. The room had no air conditioning so it was musty and muggy, which made it hard to sleep. The location of the hotel was sketchy. The pool/hot tub area could really use some work. It was pretty gross. Also, the towels were the size of a small hand towel and were as rough as sand paper. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating to any and all problems there may be. The rooms also had nice air fresheners in them to keep the dank hotel smells out. The first room we were put in was completely drenched due to a leaky ceiling, so that was pretty nasty. But like I said before, the staff was very accommodating and upgraded our room for the trouble.
Staff was nice. Thete were Roaches! Television did not work, refrigerator broken, no screens on windows. A very nasty hotel.
Bed was comfortable, room was fairly nice for the price. Location is good. There was a loud noise coming from the wall, I'm not sure if it was the neighboring room, or if it was something else, but it was a loud buzzing for about 30 minutes at a time, and it happened 3 times over the course of one night. There was also a large window at the back of the room with no curtains, and a very bright light was on all night on the other side of it. I had to roll onto my side and face away from that wall with a pillow over my head in order to sleep. The parking was terrible outside my room as well. It was on a steep hill, and there wasn't enough room to back out and turn around. I had to back all the way down the hill and into an empty space just so I could leave. The complimentary breakfast was some prepackaged cinnamon rolls and toast, and the orange juice machine only had water in it.
Price was a good deal. Room was spacious, with a small kitchenette. Neighbors were quiet. Staff was pleasant, if not very efficient. Breakfast was minimal, but ok. Smoke detector in empty room next door had low battery & beeped all night. Asked at the office that it be fixed, but it beeped all the next night as well. Finally found a worker to fix it. Housekeeping didn't start til 6pm which made it awkward coming back for the evening. the garbage in the room never got dumped. The shower curtain and bathroom window had mold; the windows got condensation very easily. There were cigarette burn holes in the top comforter and the mattress sagged a bit. Had hoped to be able to use the hot tub as our vacation involved a lot of walking, but it was drained.
Lage und Ausstattung waren in Ordnung. Völlig überteuert, Komfort und Sauberkeit lassen zu wünschen übrig
Nice cozy for adorable pricing Nice cozy for adorable pricing
Nothing Poor customer service, security problems, dirty rooms and furniture.
Location was good with easy access just off Hwy 1. Breakfast had hot cocoa, coffee/tea, 2 cereal options, bread (toaster available) with butter/jam and some breakfast pastries. There was a very strong smell of cleaners in the room that didn't go away the next morning either, but I suppose I'd rather take that reassurance of it having been cleaned! Bed wasn't very comfortable and everything looks very dated. Carpet could use a good cleaning or better yet, rip it out and replace with hardwood or laminate. Walls are thin too and we were disturbed on and off throughout the night, but it was ok enough for an overnight stay.
staff is sometimes very nice and accommodating staff is sometimes rude, condescending, and unhelpful
The entire staff was gracious and helpful during our stay. The room was beautiful and attention was paid to every detail.
We liked the proximity to the beach, restaurants, shopping. Overall it was a very lovely and charming hotel, perfect for the area!
Friendly staff, best location in downtown Carmel, comfortable beds. Tiny rooms, extremely out dated bathrooms, difficult to get a parking spot in the Pine Inn parking lot, faded red carpeting on stairs upon entry.
The location of the hotel was great and the room was clean and comfortable two flights of stairs to our room and no elevator. Breakfast could have been more varied
This was a last minute reservation after our initial 3-day weekend trip was canceled due to snow blizzard. this was a pleasant replacement in a tourist type locale. We'd return to the Pine Inn. Certain furnishings in the room had not been dusted in quite awhile. Metnion this to hotel staf and this was corrected. Also the bed sags in the middle.
While not the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in, the slanted doorways and crooked walls gave it a quaint feel. The extras were great...loved the weather report provided the night before, the mint krispies left during the turndown service, the newspaper provided in the morning, and the bottle opener fastened to the bathroom door. The staff was very friendly and helpful, helping us with our luggage and the transport and storage of our bicycles. We were able to leave our bikes in the manager's office, rather than chained to some unsecure bike rack outside or in our own room, which made us feel safer about leaving them and we really appreciated. Showers are awful! Hardly any water pressure so I had a hard time rinsing out my long hair.
Location, Oceans Ave. The lobby was beautifully done. There is also the excellent Il Fornaio restaurant in the premises. The room was really small, the bathroom claustrophobic. We had 3 large suitcases but barely had room for 2. There was no fridge or safe in the room.
Great location and friendly staff!! Pretty lobby Smaller bed room even though it s ocean view
The staff was very friendly and helpful to every need. The restaurant was excellent. Although old, the hotel is in excellent condition and well maintained. Not a big deal, but it was a little warm and the hotel has no air conditioning. Of course in this area, many do no not have AC.
Right in the heart of Carmel with plenty of parking and an easy walk to the beach.
I was in Monterey to run in Laguna Seca and the hotel is perfectly located, just 15 minutes from the track. Upon check-in, the staff was kind enough to give me directions to everything. The room itself was clean and comfortable, which is all I really ask for. I had to leave one morning before 7 AM and I couldn't have breakfast. Starting a bit earlier would help some. The one day I did have breakfast, the eggs didn't look appetizing so I chose something else.
The room The parking
Beds Pillows. Very clean Breakfast room too small.
rooms were clean, very friendly staff, good wifi, close to downtown
The staff was very friendly and helpful and accommodating There was no jacusi tub
the 4 pillows, comfy bed and wonderful sheets! the staff was SO helpful with directions and had a kind, caring attitude. the coffee served in the Breakfast area was MUCH better than I expected, a nice surprise. (i'm a bit picky on my coffee!) it was all good. the managers were very kind and attentive.
value greasy counter tops/table
Good value for the price Very close to the freeway
i like the facilities in the room and the little breakfast room. i think the breakfast should include eggs and bacons.
Nice breakfast. Fridge and microwave in room was great. Mommy traveling with four year old.. Perfect for our stay, went Monterey but didn't have to pay coastal prices. About 30 min inland from Monterey. A couple blocks away the neighborhood gets kind of shady.
Nice and clean motel. Appearence was good also.
parking was bad .....the grounds between parking and hotel had trash piled up
The noise from other rooms up above all night.
They do offer “breakfast” but its just a coffee and some packed sweet cake. The hotel room was ok, but expensive for its standard. Its just a motel and they should be cheaper than the priced we paid. The reason I would not suggest this hotel is that our room was not very clean. I found hair in the bathroom and in the shower, the bed cover had a blood stain on it that did not make the room feel clean at all. Of all the motel that are in this area I would search for another one next time I visit.
I like the fact that it was affordable and it was cleaner than expected.... There's really nothing that I didn't like about the hotel except for the breakfast...i'm diabetic and everything that was being offered was too sweet for me
The beds were very confortable and I like the fact that there was a fridge and coffee maker. Heating was excellent especially since it was quite cold that night. The receptionist could have been a little friendlier or persoanble. It's like I was just another "number" checking in. They could also serve the "continental breakfast" in another room rather than the check in office which barely fits 4 to 5 adults at a time (standing).
Helpful staff allowed us to check in early, which was very useful. Although our friends had a coffee-maker in their room, we did not have one in ours. We would have thought this should be standard to all rooms.
price was good, staff was pleasant, room was clean window did not lock
