Well maintain budget rooms and motel. Location is excellent off the pch1 and not far from the 101. Location location location. The resort next to the beach which is walking distance has excellent restaurant. I was surprised how good the sushi was there.

I've stayed here over a seven year period. The hotel only gets better and better. It's just impossible to beat the room rates in an area notoriously priced at the highest levels they can get. Over the years, since their acquisition by one of the largest hotel groups in the world, they have gone from a clientele of drug users...

This is the nicest Motel 6 we've ever stayed in. We were just spending one night and knew we wouldn't be in the room much, so booked for the price. We were pleasantly surprised! The room was spotless, the beds comfortable and it was nice and quiet. The desk staff was friendly and helpful.

If you're travelling around the USA on a budget, Motel 6 is great. The accommodation is cheap but the rooms are spacious, clean, have on suite bathrooms which are very dated but functional. They give you fresh towels but no toiletries, you can however get them free at reception, as well as an iron or hairdryer. The Bedrooms have two...

My husband, 9 week old and I stayed here for our anniversary, the room was nice, recently remodeled and updated. No hair dryer or shower essentials supplied, but we only stayed one night so didn't use the shower. About 3 miles from Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf, parking was a bit scarce, there is street parking behind the hotel. We...

I stayed here for the reasonable prices but was not happy. The rooms were very outdated, for one thing... I couldn't plug in my laptop because there were no three prong outlets. The bathroom tap barely sprinkled out water. Also, the WiFi is not free, and when you pay for it they give you a code that only works for...

After a long day of traveling with my daughter on a road trip to San Francisco, we decided to find a place to rest in Monterey until the following morning. We checked in and received the key to our room. The first thing we noticed when we entered were the loud voices, continuous walking/stomping and dropping of whatever on the...

The office staff was pleasant. The rooms were disgusting. As soon as we walked into our room we noticed there were pincher bugs in our room (primarily on the ceiling), the bathroom floors were black and dirty looking, and very overpriced for condition of rooms.
