I made a reservstion for 3 nights. Before doing that I verified the hotel & room's ammenities. While entered the room we searched for the AC controls - nada! No AC! I called the front desk and they confirmed it. We decided not to stay. In the f. Desk I was told that my C. Card was already charged for... More

We had to spend the night from Sat to Sun in this place on our way north in an RV. All the campgrounds in the region where full and we didn't make reservations early enough... But we managed to get a room at this hotel for over $300!! I made it clear that I will be arriving with my family... More

The upside- Friendly reception, very good continental breakfast, great location... The downside- extremely uncomfortable bed and pillows, grimey bathroom and paper thin walls, Maybe a bargain but should be half the price.

Located about 1 mile from the nearest shops and bars you could not say the motel is well positioned. The room itself was old and dated, smelt of something we had never smelt before and was not what I would call secure. The patio door had a metal bar to prevent the door from being opened from outside and no... More

We stayed only 8 hours in this hotel and frankly that was 8 hours too long. We arrived late the room was dated, no air con and STANK of cat wee. We were exhausted and it took ages to book in to start with so we collapsed on the grubby looking bed and just slept. We both woke several times... More

Very friendly staff, nice room. One of the few hotels we've stayed in that had a refrigerator and microwave. Best selection of cable channels ever in a hotel room. Highly recommended to stay at a great price.

Over-priced at $200/night. The staff is very friendly, and the large pool is really great. It is long and deep enough for real swimming. But rooms are basic, with thin bedding. Waffles for breakfast were good.

After a 3rd party booking incident with another hotel, this place helped us get the last room for two nights. They worked with the 3rd party and got us the best deal possible. Friendly, helpful staff and a great place to stay in a perfect location in Monterey.

My friend and I took a long overdue vacation to my hometown, Monterey Ca. this last week. We reviewed lots of hotels in the area and picked this one as our three night, four day destination. We drove in. It looked like nothing fancy, but once inside we were pleased with a queen sized fresh bed, big screen tv with... More

We booked our stay late so didn't have a lot of options and although we thought it might be overpriced for what it offered it seemed to be in line with many of the accommodations in Monteray. We were perplexed as to why accommodations in the area in general are so pricey as we've stayed in much nicer resorts in... More
