I can't say how well you are treated here. The rooms are always clean and no unusual odors to bother me. The breakfast is great, accommodating a variety of food. The motel is easy to locate, right off the 101.

I've stayed here 3 times this year and it's a good deal. I like the staff and the hotel is clean. Best of all it is $88/night, thank you very much. The property is at least 30 years old so you can hear the people above you walking around. Hopefully they keep the same hours as you do, otherwise it...

My family and I stayed here while in town for the Alzheimer's walk. Very clean rooms, great prices, and nice complimentary breakfast. Conveniently located by hwy 101. Another benefit is the black bear dinner right next door. Would definitely stay here again.

Not new, but clean, comfortable, and lower priced than most of the other local motels with hood reviews. There is a swimming pool. A Black Bear Diner is within a couple of hundred feet of the check in the same parking lot. Near traffic but no noise. The building must have good sound proofing. The bathroom is good sized. The...

We stayed here because it was fairly close to Monterey (about 30 mins by car) and we didn't want to pay the outlandish prices in Monterey. The room was a bit dated but quite okay. The staff could be encouraged to smile when someone checks in. The breakfast was the usual - waffles, cereal, toast, muffins, apples and bananas etc....

We booked this hotel via Hotwire, and were guaranteed sleeping for the 3 people (mom, dad, teenage child) the reservation was booked for. When we arrived, we were given a room with a single bed. No extra cots/rollaway, not even a spare cushion. Awkward. Who do we point the finger at here? Hotwire insists they booked the room for 3...

We stayed one night while on a road trip down highway 1, and this was a great choice to crash for a night that didn't cost an arm and a leg like places closer to the coast. It's in a safe area, clean and obviously well managed. The staff was friendly enough and the room (while outdated) was large and...

This is the place to stay. Been staying here for over 20 plus years. The rooms are comfortable and fairly large. They are quiet. The bed is comfortably soft with plenty of pillows.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in mid September. Hotel was clean and friendly staff. It is a bit dated, but good value to your money. We stayed in one of the back units and it was very quiet. Would recommend staying here if you were thinking about going to Monterey. Close and easy drive to the coast.
