This motel reminds me of a florida motel. Laid back. Clean. simple. It looks like they take good care of the landscaping. A bit noisy. and they could use a new T.V. Ours kept making a humming sound. But it was close to monterey bay aquarium and we slept good. I would stay again if I couldn't afford anything else....

This hotel was the cheapest in monterey. Here's why: -Old -smelly -very small breakfast area, no where to eat -it says in the hotel brochure breakfast is until 10. They tell you it's until 930 and clear the breakfast while your still eating! -staff is RUDE! -airplanes fly right over hotel, noisy! -showers only in the bathroom -cold! Only stay...

Room not worth 99. We were traveling without a destination this day and ended up in Monterey. The price is higher than what shows in AAA and on booking.com. The room is your standard roadside motel room. It was clean, and comfortable, and the lady at the desk was helpful with suggesting restaurants and giving us coupons. Outside very loud...

It's a typical budget-minded motel. Nothing fancy, just a place to come back and sleep at the end of the night. An unexpected plus was the rooms have a mini fridge and microwave.

We stayed there for the first time for our honeymoon as the rates were wonderful and central located. The staff and front desk people where very sweet and helpful as we didn't know the area very well. They gave us a map and showed us the most romantic sites to see, and places to dine. We were so pleased that...

I stayed here last week with my husband, more or less just as a getaway. We absolutely loved it here! The staff were great, the front desk lady showed us a map what we could in the area and she was also nice enough to let us leave our belongings behind as we didnt have a car , while we...

We booked a room with a kitchenette through hotels.com. I double checked the text when I made the reservation as we have a baby who needs food in the evening. When we arrived, the kitchenette was not working and when we questioned this at the front desk the lady somewhat arrogantly explained that we had misunderstood their advertisement on the...

We recently stayed 2 nights at this hotel while on vacation in California and it was a terrible experience. It is an old, poorly maintained hotel, the 2 chairs in the room were so badly stained we didn't dare sit in them. Since it was the week of the U.S. Open we expected rooms to be at a premium, however...

“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!!”
