We stopped at the Monterey Surf Inn while driving from San Francisco to Santa Barbara. We got there a little late and the lady on reception had waited for us.

Remodelled 08 - granite counter/tile, clean, good mattress, one story only, 32" flat screen, heated clean pool. On a busy street but no noise problem. Only negatives (minimal) - only one chair, breakfast is not extensive (mind you that seems to be common these days).
