I should have read the reviews. My fault for not . Please don't make my mistake. Dirty room, stained and dirty floor and chairs. No w-fi connection and no AC. I don't mean the AC didn't work. There was no AC unit in the room. The clerk did try to get the wi fi working so I will give him... More

Paint is chipping in bathroom..that can result to lead poisoning. Shower head looks like its clamped on and sounds like your starting a car when you start the water. You literally feel like your sleeping in the middle of the parking lot with all the noise around. I used my own pillow and blanket. Was afraid of the there sheets.... More

One star for this deplorable motel dump is still giving too much credit. We literally thought we had stepped into a third world country. It is beyond me how such a place can even exist in such a beautiful place as Monterey. And the nerve in trying to charge us for $149 a night! When we pulled up to the... More

This place is dirty, no filthy, and the entire property is littered with garbage and cigarette butts. I was there when The Monterey County Health Dept.had red tagged the pool, locked it with their pad lock and had put a big warning sign on the entrance to the pool and jaccuzzi. The carpets are so dirty that your white socks... More

Wow.... What a terrible place to stay. The location was well centered for the weeks events. However, it was shabby and nasty. I shortened my stay by one day. I hope they spend at least some of the 1322.00 I spent for the four nights, on some improvements....

Our experience was terrible because of the physical condition of the facility. Room was relatively clean but had wires from a disconnected smoke alarm on the ceiling although a replacement was on the wall. Chair in room was stained and dirty. The furniture was old and chipped. Shower was stained. Had to pay 25 cents in ice machine. Pool was... More

I guess "false" advertising is what describes it best. I had made the reservation through Expedia. They have a pool but since not much was working and personnel seemed to be quite no where I didn't go. I had also asked for high speed internet...but...that too wasn't really working. Couldn't get any work done as I had little to no... More

Did not realize when we booked this hotel that it was rated #55 out of 55. The shear curtains were in shreds. When we first arrived the fridge was not working so the maintenance man/front desk clerk/I do everything guy went under the cabinet and tried to plug another cord into the already overloaded extension cord. That lasted maybe 5... More

“Not sure about other rooms, but our room was nasty, smelled, ceiling repaired with duct tape, flat pillows, etc. The only positive comment I can make is that it was quiet since we arrived after midnight so other patrons were probably asleep. I would not allow my dogs to stay here!!”
