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 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.
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.
it was really nice and quite.. i loved everything bout my stay there
Not much Bathroom and sheets were dirty
The location is great, the price was excellent and it was quiet and peacefull. ,
jacuzzi Couldn't check in even an hour early. Hairball on bathroom floor, glob of hair on tub from razor, leftover coffee spill still on coffee maker. For amount paid, should have fridge and microwave. Showed mngr dirty room pics, she asked if that was all I had.
Nothing......was old and worn and did not feel safe or comfortable. Trashy outside are and room out of date. My wife was very upset and thought the hotel would be nice from the old pictures which was not the same when we arrived. I could not nor will not refer anyone to this hotel. Outside stairs and walkway were dirty with bird droppings.
the staff and location
The location only. It was close to a freeway and walking distance to the beach. Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was dingy, had a bad odor and had insects flying around. The desk clerk was extremely rude, was not helpful finding is another room. Never could talk to a manager, stayed one day out of two.
Rough towels. While there are double pane windows, they aren't very good quality and let in noise from Highway 1.
The room was great for the price. Front desk staff wonderful. Location is amazing. The reviews I have seen are not accurate. This place is not terrible. You get what you pay for and more with this place. Room could have been cleaned a little better, but overall, it was nice.
It's close to the beach. The manager was extremely rude. They allow squatters in opened rooms. Dirty towels on floors. Dirty and unsafe. They also couldn't find my reservation when I got there.
Proximity to the beach
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Location quick access to beach. Morning staff on day of check in were rude and did not make us feel welcome. Our reservation was not in the system and had to be researched. No lobby restroom available. I was told to go down the street to Walmart after a three hour drive.
Proximity to beach. Hard bed, dirty carpet, hairs on bath tub, dirty room. They didn't give us our AAA discount.

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.
clean and comfortable Small shower. Noisy family outside in early morning but that's not the hotels fault
The staff was friendly. Hotel is close to many places.
Cozy room. Basic amenities. Quiet. Staff helpful. Close to harbor. Bed sank in the middle.
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!
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.
Best stay for the price in the area, perfect location
High quality stay for high value. Staff was extremely helpful and cooperative.
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.
Clean, comfortable, affordable Noisy, location
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.
Very clean and safe was in splendid location and was very sffordable
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.
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 nice motel. Not enough breakfast food to go around. No DVD there. That alone will keep us from coming here again.
Everything was perfect util they gave us some new neighbors that made us a bit uncomfortable cause they made too much noise ugh The pool wasn't warm enough
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.
Private parking was really convenient The hot tub closes too early, Usually couples like to use it after dinner to relax and unwind
convenience to wharf, highway 1, room cleanliness location is on the corner of two busy streets....noisy area
from the outside, it looks like a motel. But the rooms are very good quality "Hotel style".
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.
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
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
Great place. Awesome rooms.
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.
Rooms were very clean and very nice. Would definitely recommend.
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!!!
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
Location, convenience, privacy in cottage everything was good
Location is great
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.
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
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.
The bed, the location, the hot tub and the breakfast was good, the OJ was amazing! :)
nice place and the room is very sweet.
Very convenient for getting to downtown Monterey or Carmel. Spacious bathroom and great value for the money.
parking and buildings were crowded on the site.
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.
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
Close to the shopping center. Easy parking. Free wireless internet connection. Small breakfast included. Brekfast a bit small, just cofee and muffins.
Rooms were clean, great bathrooms, excellent location, wonderful experience.
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.
Very large bathroom and decent sized room. Pool was not heated.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
Great location, decent hotel for the price The floors didn't seem like they were vacummed.
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.
Nice room, close to everything None
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!!
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!!!!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hotel great location Aesthetics could be better i.e. furniture, interior
Location and friendly staff. The breakfast.
We it the room with the jacuzzi tub and really enjoyed it. It was really elm antic and relaxing. Price was worth it. Excellent location for exploring Monterey. No complaints. The hotel is right on the street but if you are in one of the back row rooms I couldn't hear it.
Great location, able to book a room last minutes The facility is very old, and the walls are not sound proof at all. If you stay at a room near the stairs, you will hear cracking noise from the wood while people walking up and down. The heater was broken and the wifi is super slow. The beds are clean but the pillows are hard and flat. While the staff are generally very nice but they don't speak English very well, so it's not exactly easy to communicate.
N/A I am still surprised no one has called the health department yet and shut down this place. The towels were stained and gross, when I asked for new ones the front desk man/manager grabbed 3 other towels with his greasy hands and put them on the dirty counter, they were touching the floor and he gave them to me as cleaner ones...they also had stains. The shower curtain had mold..a lot of it, the floor had huge white stains and blankets holes from cigarettes. ..and the smell..oh boy!
Price friendly staff and clean rooms Old TV, loud, bath products
I got two queen beds for a pretty cheap price. Located across from a shopping center with restaurants and Whole Foods market. I was able to book same day on Kayak. Parking was free and right in front of the room. micro and a/c did not work in room #8. (Plug wasn't working) Floor leaked near refrigerator. Easy to hear everyone else walking up stairs and talking outside the window. Breakfast was basically muffins and cold cereal. No pool. You get 1 room key and have to turn it in at the end or be charged $20. Bathroom door did not lock.
Friendly employees Bed was comfy Room was clean Free wifi Location Stayed here a few times, decent for what you pay The smell in the office Thin walls Cold at nights because the door doesn't seal, fixed by turning on the fireplace
They have fire places in some rooms. Found hair on the bed,& in the shower. The TV didn't work, nor did the alarm or one light. Main door did not properly close and light was coming in threw cracks.. very thin walls, could hear people in next room talking. The bed felt old and broken, the bed sheets were, well they were only top sheets. If you're so cheap you can't afford CAL KING bed sheets, maybe you shouldn't have a motel.....
It had a fireplace. Expensive! The toilet was not secured to the floor, nor was the seat to the toilet. Bed was very old and sagged quite badly on both sides. The whole place seemed quite run down.
I will NEVER stay here again. They advertise $135 for 3 days including 10% tax...HOWEVER they charge $189 for the stay because of the tiny print indicating there is a $15 Room Service Fee. The owner had the audacity to laugh at my shock/distress...I work very hard for what little $ I earn and I tightly budget my spending. Also it doesn't feel good to be duped in this manner...I later checked: most motels in Monterey charge a $1 or $5 room service fee.
