Easy to locate as on the main road through Monterey. Good size rooms with all facilities you need for a night with parking right outside your room. No where to walk to eat and drink but there was a few minutes drive a shopping complex which had places to eat and drink and then about 5 more mins drive into... More

I spent one night at this hotel with my family and we all were happy with our stay. The check-in process was smooth and quick and the staff were helpful with our requests. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Also, rooms have free WiFi with decent quality. Parking might be an issue though if you arrive late in the... More

Room was clean, but quite small. Shower was perfect. Nicely situated. No coffee or tea facilities in the room and the worst WiFi ever. Also was the pool not heated during our stay, while the sign said so.

Two couples stayed here in May on a trip from San Francisco to San Diego. The place was convenient and run very efficiently. Two days after we left, we discovered a pair of women's jeans had been left there. I called and spoke to Sina, who answered the phone.she told us to call later after checking with housekeeping. A later... More

I wanted to pass along how much I enjoyed the Monterey Surf Inn. In my mind it was the perfect budget hotel. The rate was inexpensive. It was less than a third of the price I paid for a San Francisco hotel. It was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was big enough. The TV was a good size. the AC worked... More

Situated fine for transportation and for exploring the city, but within 500 meters you can find a lot of other places to stay, and the next time we will. Somewhat worn, a damp bathroom with inadequate ventilation gave the room a strange smell. In total below medium in quality and way above on price,

A few of us stayed here during the Sea Otter Bike Festival. It was like a 20 minute drive from Leguna Seca Raceway. The rooms were quiet and had plenty of space. Our room had two beds. There was plenty of space in the room for our extra cloths and such. The bathroom was as you would expect, nice and... More
