To get 5 stars from me 1. Keep your staff, the young girl needs more energy the middle aged Caucasian lady was great. Sorry didn't get names. 2. Replace the carpeting throughout the hotel. 3. Replace the wall paper and paint. 4. Add scrambled eggs or waffles to the breakfast. 5. Make reservations room-type specific, not what happens to be available, not sure if this is a kayak issue or hotel.
We loved the suite location and personal parking spot. Great room, very clean.
Didn't like that the telephone didn't work to reach lobby.
They overcharged me $140 and refused to refund me. It has been a nightmare dealing with this establishment. Their customer service is the worst I've ever experienced. Stay away.
Location was great
Staff - The asian desk clerk made me wait for an unreasonble. She saw I was waiting, walked past me twice, would not look my way after I sat down due to my health. She helped the other clerk in minor talk twice, she realy butted in. Having taken a behavioral at the FBI Academy, she gave a false front. with a demeaning attitude. I parked in the handicap zone and carried two suitcases, three medium size carry on bags. I had to carry my luggage up stairs (no elevator) which I maneuvered up two and down one set of stairs. I lost control of my luggage as I entered, an exited the hotel. I had to rest awhile before I started to drive. The bed needed to be replaced a few years ago. I'm really disappointed
what sucked the most is that nothing I read about the hotel said that all the planes coming and going fly right over the hotel and if the plane was big enough the building shook sounded like it was coming right though the window. that would go on all night. would I stay there again NO
Personal is pleasant.
For those of us who require a service dog or have pets this motel has a specific area where they put you. I've stayed in this motel in the past and had complained about the nasty carpet. This time around was worse than before. I stayed in room 149 as soon as I walked in and over whelming stench of dog urine. I don't understand how this is acceptable. It was so strong how can housekeeping overlook this and clean the room and report it as "ready." This carpet really needed a shampooing if not ripped out. JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE AN ANIMAL WITH US DOESNT MEAN WE RE OK WITH THIS. I went down the street to the market to purchase deodorizers. I pulled a bed sheet and layed it down so that my dog and I could walk around. Please upkeep cleanliness in these rooms!! You may want to rip out the carpet and use laminate flooring in these rooms.
Nice balcony, fridge and micro, updated furnishing and decor, lighted parking lot and view of vehicle, were able to purchase tickets in lobby with bonus day to the aquarium, breakfast (continental) and kid/ family friendly. A great value for family comfort and convience!!!
Initial check in hostess was not pleasant, the other hostess for tickets the next day was extremely helpful and polite, breakfast could have had maybe waffles to jazz up the breakfast selection and "cooked" hard boiled eggs, SHOWER was definately in need of remodeling, 70's style but clean and in good working order. Oh and yes, right below the jets/ planes flying over but it didn't bother us, we enjoyed watching them, and it seemed to only be early in the evening not when we were sleeping.
Got a good deal on Kayak (through Priceline), and the hotel is good for the money we paid. It's close enough to everything else in Monterey (by car). It was pretty quiet, not noisy at all like some reviews said. If you're just looking for a place to crash for the night, this hotel will fit the bill. Do not look for anything beyond that though.
The entire facility is pretty dated. Rooms are very old, and there's not enough lighting inside the room.
Friendly staff our dautgher received teddy bear as a welcome gift, swimming pool with nice water, breakfast was also good.
The only one thing we didn't like was, we couldn't extend our stay with the same price.
IT was dirty, it had no phones and or wifi. IT had used soap in the dish, hair on the bedspread
I liked the comfort of the room very spacious with the king size bed. Not a bad drive to fishermans wharf or aquarium but roads were congested.
The water pressure on the shower and sink was a bit on the weak side but not a huge problem. I didn't like how other guest managed to take our parking spot right in front of our room but again not a huge real.
