Good location. Like the self made waffle for breakfast. Hotel manager is helpful and friendly. Booked hotel at last min, so very reasonable px. But room is simple, and no AC. Non-smoking room, but has a slight smoking smell. However, good value for the px paid

We were very happy with our stay and the customer service provided by the manager. We were travelling in the late evening after the work and likely to reach Monterey very late. We checked the price on hotels.com and called the motel to confirm that the room is available or not. The manager gave us even better price than hotels.com.... More

Bang for buck - especially in Monterey - this was a good choice. I like a cold room and these guys offer only fans and sliding doors for ventilation, but once the sun went down it cooled off well enough. The room was comfortable, and they have a sparkling clean large inground pool with lovely grounds and relaxing chairs to... More
