I made this reservation clearly for 2 adults and 1 child and received a certain rate. When I arrived the check-in person (owner, I believe) showed me a print out with that quoted rate, then handed me a charge slip to sign. It was about $15 higher and she didn't say a word. I pointed out the discrepancy and she... More

Not a good place for the money. The room smelled of some odor and was only tolerable for one night!

this is a notch below average. Shabby , cobbled together rooms and furnishings in a neighborhood full of similar accommodations. Parking and wifi are free. Breakfast is very basic. My next trip here will focus less on location and more on comfort. We paid almost 200.00 a night (summer weekend) for this sorry place.

The location was the best feature of this hotel. Everything else was okay. The walls were thin and we also heard a lot of noise from the second floor (we were on the 1st floor). Continental breakfast was basic. I would probably try a different hotel next time just to check if there was something better in the area.

Comfortable and clean. Good place for visiting Monterrey. Breakfast is basic but everything you need. Friendly staff.

For the price, we thought this a great place. Convenient location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Large room and very comfy bed. Flat screen TV which you don't often see in budget motels. We're quite hard to please customers, but would certainly recommend it.

We stayed one night here en route to San Francisco. It was spotlessly clean, with a very comfortable bed, free wifi, aircon and a friendly welcome. For the price, I can't fault it. There were even breakfast pastries and coffee at reception, included in the room rate - not something you always get at motels. A couple of decent restaurants... More

This is an alright place to stay if you're traveling on a budget. The staff seemed nice, the room was clean, though a little on the small side, and the location is convenient to the attractions in Monterey. Our room had no A/C and the electric stand up fan was broken. We called down to the office and they brought... More

I stayed one night, as a stop before traveling down hwy one. It was fine. Clean, accessible, friendly. I would be fine stayimg here for business or with my family. But if you want something remotely modern or romantic, this place is not for you. Also, plan on buying breakfast. I think there was a toaster and a loaf of... More
