After having terrible customer service from two previous hotels on the street, when I pulled into this hotel the man behind the desk had such great customer service. I asked to see the room and he had no problem showing me one. The room was very clean and maintained. My kids loved the heated swimming pool and hot tub. I... More

Being honest - I didn't expect much as I drove up - older building with outdated small windows - but when we walked in - it was a very clean and spacious room - bathroom was recently upgraded - carpet was clean - and we spent a comfortable night there as a resting spot in between our visits to Big...

Lowest cost hotel on Priceline for an overnight stay to play golf. Comfortable and relatively clean for the price and included breakfast. Helpful staff.

In October of 2011, my family and I took a two-day trip to Monterey. We booked for four and asked for a roll-away. Besides paying for the roll-away, no additional fees were added to our room charge. The roll-away was delivered promptly, and later when we needed more towels and toilet paper, we were immediately serviced. The hotel is in... More

After reading a number of negative past reviews, I had some doubts about trying out this place. However, though this place was probably built in the 50s, the rooms and particularly bathroom were refurbished in 2010. Nice granite countertop, tile floors and new fixtures in the bath room. Bed was surprisingly comfortable and pillows decent - not the typical rocks... More

I am relocating from Los Angeles, and on arriving , was fortunate to choose this hotel by chance. The manager was most pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and had some appealing touches in its overall appearance. I especially liked the bathroom with its very large counter and coffee pot station. They even had an iron and board in...

We had looked at several places to stay in the Monterey area through America's Best Value Inns and the President's Inn was near where we wanted to be and was the most reasonable. With the ABVI card it was only $167 total for 3 nights. Not having stayed there before and reading some of the reviews, we were interested to... More

Although it looked appealing from the outside and the room price was very reasonable, we would not repeat our stay there. The room had a constant smell of mold despite strong air-freshener attempts to cover it up. Opening the patio doors to gain some fresh air and avoid using the air conditioner in warmer weather meant a constant assault from... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights as my daughter attended a wedding in Cannery Row and I worked transcribing my reports. This was the least expensive hotel in Monterey and it gave you all the basic amenities. (We paid $79/night - Fri and Sat - plus taxes for two queen beds.) Although the hotel was dated and had...

We came late to Monterey and the cheapest we could find was a room here with two queen beds for 130 before tax, but it seems that's not too bad a price for Monterey. Nice clean room, on a central road but not much traffic noise, balcony towards nice pool which for once was a bit sheltered from road and... More
