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

We booked this at the last minute and the price is good. I read the reviews that were good? Did we stay at the same place? Also the place had an themostat that didn't work it was hotter than heck. Lesson learned, I wished I would have spent 30-60 more bucks more to have a cleaner more updated bathroom. Door... More

Stayed for one night, on entering the room it was dated and had not been decorated in years, the carpet looked dirty. The blanket had cigarette burns and there were stains on another layer of sheets. The door latch had to be pushed back into the door before exiting as there was a screw missing. We didn't spend much time... More

Great value in this expensive town. Safe area. Rooms are very clean , carpet is washed every day. Very consistent breakfast. Very welcoming hosts who can book you tickets for the aquarium valid for two days which saves you queuing there.Strongly recommend it. Ended up staying two nights in the end

This is approximately the 4th time we have stayed at the Americas Best Value Inn (Presidents) on Munras Avenue, Monterey CA. We love the quiet, the beds, the room and everything about this motel. We are seniors and always request a room by the pool on the first floor. The owners PK and Sonja never disappoint. They are gracious and... More

have stayed here several times on our trips to monterey, location is easy to get to. closer drive to downtown and cannery row. also right off the freeway, nice that every room has a deck or small patio and allows you to open the door for fresh air. would stay here again when back in monterey
