When we arrived, i turned down the bedcovers to find a wet brown stain on the top sheet, which went through to the mattress cover (which, in turn, had urine stains). The owners came to change the sheets, but there was nothing to be done about the mattress. The bathroom smelled of urine; the toilet looked clean, but I wasn't... More

Stayed a couple of nights ar the Monterey Oceanside Inn on the way down the west coast. The room was comfortable enough but it all looked like it needed updating. The manager was very helpful when I needed some help.

Booked last minute for a 1 night stay while in Monterey. We found the motel to be good value for money, clean, spacious and just what we needed. Only a 10 minute drive to the centre and even closer to the beach as the name suggests. If you want a budget stay that is clean and good value this is... More

Great little family motel. Small but newly renovated and clean rooms that are as good as mid priced chains. Tight parking - so better for those with compacts. Nice shower head and mattress. Flat screen tv. Great wifi! Very good value and would stay there again.

Room smelled like cigarette smoke, shower floor had dark curly hair all over it and the beds also had the same hair in the sheets. Disgusting! Needless to say I requested my money back and moved on. Went to Hilton Garden Inn about 5 minutes away and was very very happy with my stay and my room!

Not too far from the center and yet affordable. Very clean. Looks like a remodel was not too long ago. The bed was comfortable. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. WiFi is free! This is good as cell service is less than reliable in the room. Large Flat TV but the remote I had was not working great. I forgot... More

We needed a place to stay in the area for one night. This place was relatively inexpensive which is the main reason we chose it. This was clean (enough) and I liked the location right across from the bike/walking trail. You can walk or ride on that trail to downtown. Or take it the other direction, and turn left after... More

An OK place in a very nice area central to Monterey's attractions but not in the crowded bustle of town. Clean, OK wifi, well heated for winter and very quiet. Plenty of parking. Near restaurants and shopping.

The sound proofing is rubbish so next doors TV and coughing was very audible. It's all a bit basic and utilitarian but does the job if you just need somewhere to park and sleep whilst visiting Monterey. Just skip the complimentary morning coffee. Pretty awful. It is a very pleasant 30 minute walk to the Wharf area. The excellent Monterey... More

I booked this motel without reading any reviews. The guy at the desk was the least pleasant person we'd come across in our travels. The room was clean but there is no tea or coffee making facilities or microwave in the room. These are located in the small lobby. There was a dirty ashtray outside the room, on top of... More
