Great non chain accommodation. Room was really nice and very spacious,very clean and huge bathroom. Very walkable to downtown and Fisherman's Wharf. A nice 30 min walk to Cannery Row, which is well worth the walk. Staff could not have been more helpful with both check in and tourist enquiries. I would thoroughly recommend staying here and would love to... More

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 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.
