They had helpful staff, acceptable beds, and clean accommodations. Make sure you get a room on the second floor. (They have thin walls.) Good value for what you pay for. They were located near everything that we needed downtown. We just parked at the hotel and never needed the car after that.

This place is great for the price. We got in for 79+ tax on a Saturday and 59+ tax on Sunday, Monday. It's centrally located; We were able to walk everywhere. We never woke up early enough for the breakfast (8-9:30) so I don't know how it was. The toiletries included conditioning shampoo and bar soap so I would recommend... More

I stayed here a few years back and I had a pleasant stay at that time. I called and requested a room on the second floor near the hot tub since I knew I would want to soak each night. When I arrived, I was happy to find that I had the room on the end in the corner where... More

Thank you for your review. We did remove the hot tub due to the amount of noise it created for the rooms near the hot tub. We would rather have guests who have a peaceful nights rest rather than a complaint about the noisy guests in the hot tub all night. Our soap bars have been switched to a larger... More

After the worst experience in my life at another hotel we stumbled upon this one. Very nice newly renovated reasonably priced place to stay. The staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. We did not stay for the continental breakfast but they gave us a 10 percent discount card for Dennys. All in all a great experience.

I went there out of season so that the rooms were very cheap (below 50 bucks). For that price, I was satisfied with the room.Very basic but good enough for a night of sleep. Some positive aspects: very fast wireless internet, the possibility to park your car close to the room and a shopping center in the neighborhood of the... More

We stayed here with my husband five years ago. The original plan was to camp in Big Sur, but all the campgrounds were full. We kept driving till we hit Monterey and all the pet friendly hotels were booked. A word of mouth by one of the hotel's representative that we visited, led us here to this charming little inn....

Room was clean no odors to speak of, beds were comfortable, lacking power outlets. They really don't try at all on the free "breakfast". Bad coffee and danish. But the soap is memorable, about the size of a stick of gum. I think I overpaid at $70.

First time in Monterey and found this gem, Staff amazing shared all secrets of the area and helped getting reservations at great little restaurants. Cant wait to visit again and will be staying here each and every visit. Rooms clean and comfortable but the big plus park your car and walking distance to everything we needed A+

If you need a cheap and clean place to overnight, this is the place. Do not expect luxury once all is basic. Bad is comfortable and the staff is very friendly. At time of check-out we had mechanical problem with our car. The young (and pretty) girl of the front desk gave us all support we needed : call to... More

Great value. This is the second time we've stayed. Quiet and clean both times. 1.8 miles from the Presidio Monterey. Breakfast is simple but convenient. We found the staff very helpful - area maps, closest gas, restaurants, etc.
