The location is great, the price was excellent and it was quiet and peacefull. ,
It was cheap and you kind of get what you pay for but if you have the money definitely don't go here. I literally don't believe someone cleans the room even remotely well after someone stays there. My trash can had a used condom in it and there was long black hairs all over the sheets and blankets.
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.
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.
Not much Bathroom and sheets were dirty
it was really nice and quite.. i loved everything bout my stay there
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.
The staff was friendly. Hotel is close to many places.
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!
High quality stay for high value. Staff was extremely helpful and cooperative.
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.
clean and comfortable Small shower. Noisy family outside in early morning but that's not the hotels fault
Room was clean and decorated very nicely. No AC in the rooms and the ceiling fan would only go up to the lowest setting. The in room fridge was very noisy but otherwise no complaints about the room.
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.
Best stay for the price in the area, perfect location
Cozy room. Basic amenities. Quiet. Staff helpful. Close to harbor. Bed sank in the middle.
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 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.
parking and buildings were crowded on the site.
Very convenient for getting to downtown Monterey or Carmel. Spacious bathroom and great value for the money.
Breakfast was great and the room was very clean and newly renovated Nothing really the breakfast area was slightly small but this was a minor annoyance
Great stay all in all. Unfortunately , noisy foot traffic outside my door.
very quiet place mattress too soft
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
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.
Room was spacious. It's next to the beach. Breakfast was average Checking in the gentleman at the counter was very rude. Had his head phones in and basically just asked for name and gave us our key. Didn't give us any information. The room also smelled like animals had been in there.
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.
Worst place to stay! Very unsafe, and the people working there would not answer the phone.
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.
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.
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.
People next to us partied all night with loud music and dozens of people in their room. We complained and nothing happened . Was not worth the money we did not sleep at all and the tv was broken.
Location Multi use soap pumps....ewww glad I travel with my own soaps Dirty floor and bath Lazy staff, waited 5 min for them to acknowledge I was there to check in only to be told please wait. Won't be a second visit.
Very nice motel. Not enough breakfast food to go around. No DVD there. That alone will keep us from coming here again.
Clean, comfortable, affordable Noisy, location
Very clean and safe was in splendid location and was very sffordable
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.
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.
Private parking was really convenient The hot tub closes too early, Usually couples like to use it after dinner to relax and unwind
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.
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.
convenience to wharf, highway 1, room cleanliness location is on the corner of two busy streets....noisy area
The Room was clean and the heater worked well... It was a cold night for Monterery... 11/2010
from the outside, it looks like a motel. But the rooms are very good quality "Hotel style".
Clean, cheap and efficient None. Was v. Happy for the price
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.
Great place. Awesome rooms.
Location, convenience, privacy in cottage everything was good
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
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
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!!!
Clean room. Breakfast as described and plentiful. Good location. Pool and hot tub were not very clean
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.
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.
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...
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.
Hotel was clean, close to attractions, and well priced. Bed was pretty comfy. The area is definitely on the nicer side but I was concerned about the openness of the parking lot during the night. No issues, just concerns.
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.
Close to the shopping center. Easy parking. Free wireless internet connection. Small breakfast included. Brekfast a bit small, just cofee and muffins.
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.
Rooms were clean, great bathrooms, excellent location, wonderful experience.
Location is great. Friendly staff for the most part. The safe was handy. Free parking. Nice to have fridge and microwave and good selection of channels and nice TV. Bed sheets were paper thin. Beds were uncomfortable. Bathroom didn't smell fresh. Continental breakfast was nothing to write home about- all cheap GMO food. All in all, way overpriced for having to pay $274 per night. It was a holiday weekend so they probably raised rates but I didn't see the value.
Very large bathroom and decent sized room. Pool was not heated.
The location was the only good thing. Poor management clearly doesn't cater to its guests. Unwilling to rectify inconsistencies in billing between myself and our friends (we were charged $110 more for our stay). The management blamed booking.com for the problem and would not discuss it.
The watermelon at brunch was good Paid LOTS of money for a room with a king size bed. This place is NOISY. The sound of people flushing their toilets or running their showers is incredible. The banged up used furniture in our room needs replacing. Knobs were missing from the end tables and chest. The upholstery on the two chairs were pathetic. We parked on the street because this hotel does not have enough parking spaces to accommodate guests. WILL NOT STAY HERE AGAIN.
Located right as you get downtown, it is walking distance to everything. This makes finding parking a nonissue. Yay. The breakfasts were homemade and nice. Quiche, fresh fruit slices, muffins in addition to the usual fare. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The furniture was scuffed and worn which made a poor first impression.
Very cosy hotel in the most convenient location. I would definitely stay here again. No bad points.
The general location of the hotel was good. The breakfast that came included with the room was good too. They could have changed the main dish which was made from eggs and spinach. Exactly the same thing was served all of the three mornings we stayed there. The dust ruffle on the bed was very dirty or stained. The bathroom was in need of a lot of work and details. The bathtub was two different colors and when you got into it the plastic tub cover had a lot of water trapped under it which was terrible. The walls behind and around the toilet were badly stained and unfinished. Rooms were not very soundproofed. Try oiling the hinges on all of the doors in the complex which you could easily hear from the other units. Someone should walk the individual units to look at what has not been attended to for some time.
Breakfast, Parking. We checked in around 9PM, they gave us a isolated room by itself, facing the street, and sidewalk is right in front of room door. The bath room is under remodeling and not finished yet. Two girls stayed in the strange city feeling very uncomfortable. We locked the door and closed curtain whole evening, didn't want to go walk around at all. The front counter told us because it is late check-in, they gave all rooms to other customers. I stayed in Carmel village Inn 4 times in past 10 years. Each time I felt great. But, this night stay really made me scared and very fed up. I will never recommend this hotel to anyone anymore.
Walking distance to what we wanted to see or where we wanted to go.
The location is perfect! The filth and beat up furniture...scummy place!
Very good price / quality ratio.
Good location. grossly overpriced motel.
This motel has a good location; comfortable rooms and a very good price / quality ratio. The included breakfast is small but good
The price and location were fabulous
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!!
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.
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.
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 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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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
Other than location, not much to like about this property, although couldn't really see water from the property Room old & dirty. TV didn't work. No roof top access. Lots of boarded up rooms. Not a good experience.
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 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.
The location was fantastic, and the staff was very friendly. The facilities were outdated and there was some water in the parking area.
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.
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.
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
