This was an excellent hotel. The room was spacious and clean with a good sized fridge and television. The bathroom was spotless and the towels were good quality and large. The free hot drinks and reception were great, as was the coffee machine in the room. The room was cleaned to a high standard daily. An excellent place to stay; have no idea why there are any negative reviews at all.
We needed a place near Carmel for one night so we chose this one. Right off the bat we were shocked that ALL the windows in our room were unlocked. We were in a corner room on the first floor so luckily we noticed this right away before we left the room. Won't be back.
Great little motel/hotel that is about 15 minutes walk from the front. Stayed in room 15 which was sparkling clean and very roomy. Parking was free which was a bonus. Check in was easy and the staff were very friendly. Would recommend and would probably stay again
I chose the Villa Franca on the strength of reviews. I requested a first floor room but had been put in a second floor. This was rectified at check in but was a deal breaker. The room was pleasant but oddly lacking in some facilities. While it was good to have a microwave and fridge, it would have been nice to have a coffee machine, while the lack of any cups, plastic glasses or ice bucket was plain perplexing, especially as there was an ice machine directly outside my room.
Franca Villa was very clean and the room suited us for what we needed. We just needed a night for the Big Sur Marathon. The bed was very comfortable. Perfect for checking in, walking to downtown, settling in and waking up to go to the next destination. Would recommend.
Janette who checked us in is super friendly and helpful (we chose a restaurant recommendation from her list which was great!). She had shifted some rooms so that we could be next door to the couple we were traveling with which was convenient and much appreciated. The hotel was clean, a great value and a short walk from the heart of downtown. Because it is at a major intersection, the road noise could be heard including some early morning (garbage?) trucks. Internet was spotty and the shower water pressure could be better but despite these issues, I would return again.
Friendly staff and location is very walkable- 10 Minutes to Alvarado. Bathroom is tiny, and you hear every footstep above if you're on the bottom floor. I felt I was vastly overcharged ($200+) for a single night- but it was a holiday weekend. Is it worth $200? No. Is it worth the more average non holiday rate of $100? Probably.
Older hotel in walking distance to downtown Monterey. Everything was clean and service was good. We were able to walk to historic sites and restaurants. Despite being on a noisy street the room was quiet.
The Inn has a professional staff and the property is clean. The bed and linens were satisfactory. Towels were new (ish). The property is along "Hotel-Motel" row. It's better than most of the properties available in the price range. Parking is plentiful and right in front of the location.
Awesome place to stay Awesome service. Beautiful rooms. If you are lookin for a place to stay this is the one . Overall very clean, quiet and beautiful place to stay. Definitely will come back again. Thanks.
