    We made this reservation literally as we rolled into Monterey after making a booking mistake with another property. We had never stayed at an Americas Best Value property before and weren't sure what we'd get. This is not a new hotel. It's not a fancy hotel. It's not luxurious. Let's get those expectations out of the way first. However, it's... More

    We stayed at the America Best Value President Inn on Friday night. The location of the hotel was good. It was walking distance to Old Town Monterey/Fishermen’s wharf. The flat screen TV with Direct TV selection was a plus. Other than that, everything else was below expectations. The motel just seemed dated and not as clean (stain s on bedspread)... More

    Spacious, clean- not noisy. Great breakfast and very pleasant staff. We typically stay at another hotel on Munras, but for the same rate, we thought the Americas Best Value President's Inn a much better option for the future. We're very glad we stumbled upon it.

    This is an older place but the rooms have been refurbished in the last few years so there are a number of nice touches like a granite bathroom counter, Sony 40" flat screen TV, automatic night lights so you can find the bathroom when getting up in the middle of the night, and a half way decent bed.

    We stayed 2 nights during the week at this place. It met and exceeded our expectations. Nice and clean room, enjoyed swimming pool and hot tub, good breakfast, excellent location - 5 minutes from Acquarium and fisherman's wharf. Only drawback is that since building is old you can hear neighbours and outside very well. Will come back if I visit... More

    We were travelling through and stayed here before heading further down the coast. The rooms were well equipped and clean. The staff were friendly and breakfast was more than adequate. The beds were also very comfortable.

    Its about a 15 min walk to the main town centre from the motel. We had a room with two double beds, with 4 of us in there and was very spacious. Breakfast was good (they have a waffle machine!), but try to avoid peak times as there are only about 6 tables. Staff were friendly and helpful
