This motel was fantastic. It was clean, nicely renovated, on the beach and affordable. The lady who manages the resort does a fantastic job. She was also very helpful in answering our questions and directing us to attractions and restaurants. I hope to see her there next summer. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I have been staying in this unit every year for over 10 years. The owner is always updating the room. He has added new carpeting, windows a full size fridge a new sink and toilet. I like that there is a BBQ out by the pool and a washer and dryer on the ground floor so I can go home... More

The facility was really very nice if you are travelling with children and want to be on the beach! Property includes a game area in a secure environment. We were disappointed, however, with our room, after seeing glimpses of other 2 bedroom condos that had been updated. Our living / dining / kitchen area was fine, as was the front... More

I would highly recommend the Monterey Resort. We have been very fortunate to have made this resort our vacation tradition for over 10 years.

The condo was affordable , CLEAN, and RIGHT on the beach!! Staff that cares about its guests. Clean pool, grilling area, shuffleboard, round pool table, and Ping Pong. Washer and dryer on site . Daily maid service available. We would absolutely stay here again.

We loved that the Monterey was right on the beach, it was quiet, family friendly, the pool was well kept, clean, and lots of fun for the kids. The other outdoor games that were available were also nice for relaxing as a family. The rooms were clean and well-kept. We loved the kitchen, and were able to save money by... More

I was extremely happy with the staff and the office help. Roseanne was there when we needed her and happy to help us out with whatever we needed. The cleaning team was great. They did an excellent job and the place was sparkling clean everyday. Overall we had a great experience.

I took my family to stay here for a few days in July. The manager of the motel was unbearable. She was constantly giving people attitute, rolling her eyes when you had a question, yelling at people to close their doors, and even giving little kids a hard time. We spoke with a couple of the owners of the condos... More

Never again!! This place was built in the 50's and I don't think one thing has been updated since then. The rooms are all sub par and overpriced. But really the worst part about this place is not even the rooms. Its the woman who manages the building. Treated all her guests very very poorly, and was just generally nasty... More

This motel has steadily gone downhill over the last few years due to incredibly poor management. Each year it seems to get worse. The property manager is simply awful with a bad attitude to say the least. The motel is actually individually owned condos and I think the word has gotten out about the management.
