We stayed here for one night on our road trip, but wished we had stayed for 2! It was a really lovely and large room, with two very large comfortable beds. Big tv, however no fridge in our room. There is aircon but it is very noisy, however if you have a room with back doors/windows overlooking the sea there... More

The only time we may not be able to respond is when we are on a phone call taking private credit card information for a future reservation. I have spoken to all of my staff... More

The lodge is very convenient to restaurants, shopping, churches and most of all Fisherman's Wharf. No breakfast but a discount was offered at a near by restaurant ( Kathy's) was great. Carpet was being installed in rooms but they were gone by 5:00. Clean, good bed and we liked the shower no tub.

Formerly El Adobe Inn is a great place to stay, it is clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. Misha the new manager and daughter of the owners has been on a remodel campaign and has really improved the rooms. I stay with them monthly, have for the past 2 years and never had anything but a positive experience. I highly... More

This was the cheapest place we booked along our west coast trip from LA to SF - about $100/night/room. I was initially anxious to see what would be there for us on arrival after a bad experience in San Simeon ( which had also been rated highly on Trip Advisor) but was pleasantly surprised, and relieved, upon arrival. We had... More

The location is good, there are several restaurants and markets also gas stations around. The room is clean and fine for the family. The staff is helpful. I like the plants and the beautiful flowers outside. However, it is a little overpriced during July.

Pleasantly surprised by this quaint hotel. Our room was very clean and comfy. Surprisingly we could see the ocean from our room. Location is close enough to walk downtown, to the wharf and even cannery row. Parking in Monterey can be challenging so walking is a nice option. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very reasonable rates which included wi-fi... More

It is located within a walking distance from the centre and to the mall. The room was quite large and attractive with a modern bathroom. It was clean and cosy. The staff went out of the way to help. It is great is you have a car.

Very clean and walking distance to amenities. A bit far from main Monterey area... About 30 minutes walk to aquarium and sights. The room was clean and staff friendly. Not many amenities nor anything special. But it's tastefully decorated and feels perfectly fine. Low maintenance rental with comfortable place to sleep and rest on the coastal drive from San Fran...
