I was looking every where for a hotel when we were staying in Monterey but every where I looked was booked. I read the reviews that this place was clean and a good place to stay and so I booked a late last minute reservation online. The guy at the front was very kind. He checked us in with no problem, even though it was 11pm, and came upstairs to help us to our room because the door key got stuck. Once inside our room it was very clean and neat. I came with my husband and our two kids. There were no complaints here. Beds were comfy, sheets were immaculate, room was very clean. There was no air conditioning but its so cool that close to the water you don't really need one. I cracked a window and the cross breeze and fresh air were more than sufficient! I will definitely be staying here again the next time me and my family are in town.
very close to grocery stores and close to Monterrey overall only reason there are positives was only the staff was friendly and location access to freeway and groceries. upon inspection of room, first thing my wife and i noticed is the room smelled of cigarette smoke. 0 amenities though there was a stove, full fridge, no pots pans. 1 small tv and had zero kid channels but yet every adult channel. had to ask for a room lamp in the master bedroom as there was not one. Comforters were itchy, i suspected bed bugs though i could not find them. shower was had one of the worse water pressures i have had in years. poor ventilation. No hangers, no ironing board or iron. door only had a single lock.
Though the price is higher than an average Motel 6, the rooms are great. Hardwood floors and recently updated appliances made it feel much cleaner and more comfortable than the usual motel experience.
The location is great, the price was excellent and it was quiet and peacefull. ,
it was really nice and quite.. i loved everything bout my stay there
It was a clean no frills room that fit what we needed - easy to find and at a good price. We were staying at that location for one night while traveling Hwy 1.
The newly remodled rooms and layout was excellent. Very "non-hotel" feel. Loved the cleaner feeling wood floors. Pillows were much better than more expensive chaoms. The rate per night, regardless of location, was far too high. Paying for wifi with that type of rate turned me off.
Not much Bathroom and sheets were dirty
Wonderful person at front desk. Astute which is rare. Hot tub clean and exercise room great. Quiet. Redid hotel and put in double pane windows and soundproofing. Very close to MRY (Monterey Community Airport) Need the exercise room which is tiny. If there were a lot of guests, it would not be possible to use. One place open for breakfast at 6 am. Not on property and not particularly healthy food.
The staff was friendly. Hotel is close to many places.
High quality stay for high value. Staff was extremely helpful and cooperative.
clean and comfortable Small shower. Noisy family outside in early morning but that's not the hotels fault
This motel was great! Cheap, clean, friendly staff, quiet, good location, free internet, what more could you ask for. Would stay here again for sure if ever in Monterey. I have no complaints, everything was perfect.
Best stay for the price in the area, perfect location
Service was great. Bed made every day, coffee generously replenished each day. Courteous front office staff tutorial on local haunts and some handy discount cards! Will always stay at the Lone Oak when in Monterey. A little far to walk to any major sites, but parking is easy in Monterey so it was not a hassle at all.
The woman at the front desk was so nice, she gave some recommendations for restaurants and some appatizer vouchers. The place was very clean and well taken care of. Will for sure return!
Cozy room. Basic amenities. Quiet. Staff helpful. Close to harbor. Bed sank in the middle.
The staff appeared friendly, didn't really have a need to contact them often. Nice location close to shopping, eating, etc. The bed was comfortable. Old and outdated facility, sink area was scratched up some chipping too. Toilet seat also had scratches and chips. The shower water shifted from hot to cold on its own while taking a shower. Carpeting a bit old. Somewhat of a musty smell in the room overall. Old tube tv, but not the worst thing I guess.
Great location! Friendly and accommodating staff. Right next door to Monterey attractions without the busy tourist a traffic. Just a few steps from the beach. Loved it. No complaints definitely plan to return.
The beach The junkies in the parking lot getting high. Dirty hotel room Overall scary experience
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.
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
parking and buildings were crowded on the site.
very quiet place mattress too soft
Great stay all in all. Unfortunately , noisy foot traffic outside my door.
Very convenient for getting to downtown Monterey or Carmel. Spacious bathroom and great value for the money.
Closeness to Cannery Row, sightseeing, wharf. Really worth the money. The beds are very comfortable and we felt safe. Walls needed to be touched up, under sink. Small things. Overall, very happy with this hotel.
Price. Room was recently updated. Grounds were dirty. Rude staff. Only hot breakfast option was waffles.
Beds and pillows were great . Tv was cool with lots of channels and bathroom was very clean . nice big room. Very clean and quiet . Pool wasn't very heated and it was semi indoor it had an outdoor patio with and opening to the pool . We tried to swim at night but it was too cold.
Clean, comfortable, affordable Noisy, location
This hotel has everything coffee pot, microwave, fridge, blow dryer, shampoo and conditioner, body wash, hand soap, lotion, Wi-Fi, cable ac/haeater, indoor pool, ice machine, and free breakfast. The parking lot got full quick. No parking in front of our room.
It was very clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfast selection was good, it was close to our destinations. Bed wasn't the most comfortable, but i have nothing bad to say about the place.
Very clean and safe was in splendid location and was very sffordable
Very nice motel. Not enough breakfast food to go around. No DVD there. That alone will keep us from coming here again.
The room was nice and clean. There was a night club next to the hotel that played music until 2am which made it very difficult to sleep comfortably. This happened both days I stayed there Wednesday and Thursday. Called the front desk regarding this only for the agent to act like they had no idea what to do but said they would get back to me and never did. The heated pool was not heated but cold. The breakfast area was small and crowded with guest and it made it uncomfortable.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Short walk to the downtown area. Right across from a beautiful pond. the attached restaurant was great. we stayed on the top floor and the outside hallway was just bare wood. looked terrible but could not tell if it was under construction as it didn't look like anyone was working on it.
Hotel facilities are excellent and we had a pleasant reasonable-sized room. The location is also quite good - only a short drive to Fisherman's Wharf and the rest of the very attractive town of Monterey.
convenience to wharf, highway 1, room cleanliness location is on the corner of two busy streets....noisy area
Private parking was really convenient The hot tub closes too early, Usually couples like to use it after dinner to relax and unwind
from the outside, it looks like a motel. But the rooms are very good quality "Hotel style".
The Room was clean and the heater worked well... It was a cold night for Monterery... 11/2010
Clean, cheap and efficient None. Was v. Happy for the price
Location, convenience, privacy in cottage everything was good
We had a wonderful time! Very close to the beach and Monterey! Pacific grove is such a beautiful area They charged me a different rate for the second night. When I booked on booking.com it get me a flat rate
Rooms were very clean and very nice. Would definitely recommend.
Well worth the money, and what a fabulous rate they have for bring practically beachfront! Very accommodating and helpful. Great breakfast too!! That we only stayed for one night! Can't wait to go back and stay longer.
It was so cozy and felt homey. I did not want to leave. Very clean and just overall an awesome stay That i did not stay longer
Clean room. Breakfast as described and plentiful. Good location. Pool and hot tub were not very clean
Great place. Awesome rooms.
good location. The rooms were small , smelled like cigerette smoke in a non-smoking room(they would not give us another room) -my girlfiend is allergic ! not good. The view outside our window was a bunch of construction supplies thrown behing our building. The shower never got hot. I was trying to do something special for my soon to be wife. She was mad/unhappy our entire trip. -unsatisfactory!!!
Location is great
I loved the style and comfort of the hotel, the fact is our room wasnt huge however, it had a nice comfortable bed a great flat screen tv refrigerator and a microwave. It was extremely cozy. I loved it and would stay again. Loved everything
nice place and the room is very sweet.
The bed, the location, the hot tub and the breakfast was good, the OJ was amazing! :)
Friendly people at the reception. Good value for the money. Parking in the lot. I would do it again. The furniture in my bathroom was in poor condition.
Location and very friendly staff. Way too loud. Could hear EVERYTHING occurring upstairs. Could not sleep. Cheapest hotel in town, but still way too expensive for the overall experience.
Building architecture Room cleanliness, size, quality of material. sheets, etc. The heater blows right on the bes and makes sleelinping very uncomfortable when turned on.
Family rooms are right between staircases that are outside looking into your room. Very loud from other rooms. Seemed old and poorly insulated. Outdoor lighting shined in Windows. Definitely felt dirty in rooms, beds very uncomfortable. Have to be honest because I read people's reviews that liked it and that's why we took family there. Poor decision! Will not recommend or return...
We had a nice large room with a fireplace and vaulted ceilings. Nicely decorated. Very clean. Parking right out front. Comfortable bed. Everything we needed was already in our room.
Location was fine. Spacious room. Bed was comfortable. Gas fireplace warmed the room. Crowded breakfast room. Furnishings were tired. Some voices from neighboring room through the wall. Bathroom sink drained slowly and needed to be cleaned.
Rooms were clean, great bathrooms, excellent location, wonderful experience.
It was close within driving distance to both Cannery Row and Fishermans wharf as well as Pacific Grove and Carmel.It was also close to Pt Lobos reserve. You could attend casual dining or dress up fancy dining. The manager was quite friendly, and the Motel was quite clean. It would be nice of the pool was heated instead of seasonal.
Very large bathroom and decent sized room. Pool was not heated.
Close to the shopping center. Easy parking. Free wireless internet connection. Small breakfast included. Brekfast a bit small, just cofee and muffins.
I really liked the location. We like to walk, so we were able to do a lot without having to drive. Convenient for the price. The room was not really clean, and the door looked like someone had tried to kick it in at some point, frame was warped. Very small room. Would have not wanted to stay here if our kids were with us.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!!!!
Great location, decent hotel for the price The floors didn't seem like they were vacummed.
Nice room, close to everything None
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.
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.
Beach front view and lower level is better easy access to the road and taxis Lady at customer service was really rude. Had to take a taxi to fisherman's warf and aquarium since didn't want to pay for parking there but it is not a walk away from hotel it's a drive, bathroom was not clean and very very tiny.
The location was fantastic, and the staff was very friendly. The facilities were outdated and there was some water in the parking area.
It's across the street from the water. Would you believe that this place has mostly ocean view rooms for this price! I sat in the morning in my room drinking my coffee and looking at the water or watching people walking down the beach from my window. The beds are clean, bathroom is good, people at the front desk are happy and friendly. A little noisy since the building is older and lots of families stay there. But everything else is great! Couldn't ask for more.
Location was amazing! The hotel was extremely loud which is a challenge when traveling with a toddler. Most of the staff was helpful but I found Julianna to be rude and abrupt. When asking about a place to get bagels she pointed behind her and said "check lighthouse Ave." even though she had a map in front of her she did not help with directions. Also not helpful during a power outage. I had to ask them for a flashlight! They didn't even check to see if we needed anything.
Location was perfect and Juliana was absolutely wonderful! She was so helpful and funny, she even recommended a fabulous restaurant across the street for us and gave us a free appetizer. Beds were comfortable, there were no noises or anything, and breakfast was basic but good. Can't go wrong! Parking garage was only open on one end and turning around in there was challenging.
This hotel depends on its superior location for its business. The facility otherwise is lacking in every other category. There are too many better hotels in the area for the price. It would behoove the owners to spend a little money on this facility as it is run down and inoperative. What work was done was not to any professional level i.e. shower stalls with large holes where the installer completely missed the plumbing opening. We complained that the drain was so slow that standing water backed up 4" deep. Came back that night with no repair. Also came back to an room that had not been cleaned. AM staff would only ARGUE that there was a do not disturb sign on door. We did not leave one.
Small room,wich seamed a little run down
location Garbage trucks outside window at 6 AM Broken heater with poor substitute heat source Noisey alley Parking lot view w/no assigned parking Very dated and worn: bordered on shabby
Good location, right at Lover's Point. The free WiFi was good enough to stream a kids show via Netflix. Very noisy with thin walls. The rooms are on the small side with an odd layout. However, it has everything you need for a short stay.
The location and staff was friendly. Had a mini fridge and microwave which is all you really need. Very clean and had a nice little tv. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. I'm not sure if the walls are very thin or because our room was a Couple feet from where the cars park but you could hear every little sound outside of the room. The people above us had lead feet as well buts that's not necessarily the hotels fault.
The location is definitely perfect for a quiet weekend get away. the room was clean and definitely easy enough to check in. Breakfast was good There was an overall musty smell in the room and bathroom. The paint in the bathroom was bubbling off the walls.
Price, Breakfast was OK, ocean across the street, breakfast was OK, refrigerator in room was a plus, close to where I needed to go. Below parking felt dicey, rooms need upgrading.
