...But the people were so nice, I forgive them. The room was nothing special, but the front desk people were. Very sweet and personable. Breakfast waffle making was fun and the location was close to town.

Parag was very helpful arranging various modifications to our itinerary for Inno Advanced Car Racks business visit for 5 nights. Also helped us with shipping of large boxes for our show. Timely, friendly and responsive. Walking distance from Whole Foods Market, Rite Aid and restaurants. Very close to main highway and bay.

3 friends and I traveled to Monterey for golf trip. Hotel was great for the price. Good service and close to Cannery Row. Would recommend. Rooms clean and beds great. Breakfast is ok but is included in price.

I ended up staying in the King Suite at this inn and enjoyed it very much. It was clean, if a bit dated, and stocked with plentiful towels and pillows. The suite rooms are comprised of two floors and have full sized kitchen appliances. The staircase is picturesque. Overall the inn is quite charming and just plain fun. The staff... More

A basic but clean motel in a good location. We stayed for one night whilst visiting Monterey. The location is OK but walking to the sights in Monterey takes around 20 minutes. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was good. Only issue was a funny smell in the room which we told them about but nothing... More

Older but clean, room smelled nice. Shower had hot water and high shower head. The couple that run this Inn are friendly and helpful and I will for sure stay here again! Would have given a 5 star rating if the walls were not paper thin.

Dear Julie, We are absolutely thrilled you had a great stay. We're also happy to hear you enjoyed our newly refinished bath showers. There are a few limitations of our original construction which we hope to find an eco friendly solution to improve, namely wall insulation. We will be working on that improvement. Looking forward to serving you again and... More

Excellent location. The manager couple were incredibly personable and extremely hospitable. I had an early meeting and requested for an early breakfast at 6.30 AM and guess what! i received a call from the manager at 6.25 AM "breakfast room is open" Awesome. Very clean room at reasonable price,very well maintain,very accommodating. I definitely stay there again.

I was surprised we could get a motel room so inexpensively, so had very low expectations. I was even more surprised by how nice it is. What a sweet room we got, all very clean and well furnished and kept up, just as nice as motels that go for $20 per night higher, if not nicer. For breakfast, there was... More
