I checked in here with the kids and realised on Google pretty much hoping it will be reasonable! The room price was fairly reasonable compared to the few adjacent hotels. Clean, good quality beddings, pillows and rooms were clean and well kept. Wifi was excellent and daily small selection of breakfast was just enough to keep you going. The great...

Room was very small, no coffee maker and the included breakfast/coffee room does not open until 7:30! Included breakfast is minimal, cereal/muffins/toast and the room size is tiny.... We really wanted a cup of coffee before 7:30! :( Room did appear clean!

I have stayed at different hotels in the Monterey area and this little hotel is nice and quiet, especially if you get a room in the center towards the back because there is a greenbelt behind the hotel, so it really helps keep the noise levels down. I like to get a good nights sleep, so I slept very well...

I travel extensively throughout the year. I am a top-tier member of nearly every major hotel chain. However, for my money, the Padre Oaks Inn is the best. The management is extremely professional, courteous, and polite, the staff is exceptional, the hotel is located directly across the street from the major mall in Monterey, it's in a very safe neighborhood,...

My wife and I were visiting Monterey for a weekend in February. We did not book a hotel in advance, so we tried to book into several motels. At one of the motels we were asked to try another one, because there were road construction work outside for the whole weekend. We think that was fair to tell us that....

Booked in for one night on our way through Monterey, had tried 3 other motels but all fully booked so when this room was available, we didnt feel we should turn it down. Room was small but clean. The bed was comfortable, but the toilet paper and walls very thin. I woke in the middle of the night to hear...

We rented a room for one night, mostly because the other motels around it were fully booked. It wasn't stellar, but I didn't feel cheated at all. The room was clean, the shower running and hot, the beds were above average and it was quiet. The lack of airco was no problem in late september. About the only thing that...

Based on previous bad reviews, I somewhat agree, but have to say it is clean but very basic. Yes, the pool has been a garden for several years, and the toilet paper and walls are thin, and parking is difficult. But travelers to the Monterey area need to know several things: 1) Almost all lodging is very old. 2) Lodging...
