Nice clean room, close to downtown, like a 20 minute walk. Went to Safe Night in downtown Monterey. Listened to all kinds of music. Getting back on the freeway was a snap .Hotel was easy to locate and has a park across the street.

this location we were just like a mile to 2 from the fisherman's wharf. The 17 mile drive is about 5 miles from the motel. Beautiful coast line along the drive. Homes are so beautiful also. Very nice drive

RG at the front desk was so gracious and helpful when we checked in. He offered to show me the room first. It was very clean and updated. However, the TV even though a wide screen was not the greatest. They could upgrade by putting in some comfortable chairs instead of hard basic chairs. I would stay there again for... More

I really wanted to love this hotel but everything about it was terrible. When we checked in the guy in the front desk was nice and friendly. The room itself was not what I expected. It had a bad scent to it and the guests above us were very loud. The sheets had flatiron marks on them and were not... More

Motel 6 in Monterey Downtown, is not what I'd call a dive, however, it messed up enough things I simply can't rate it very high. The location is nice, literally right across the street from Del Mar mall,with its many restaurants, where did the managers tell us to eat... A tourist trap fish joint on fishermans wharf. I figure that... More

We stayed in room 206 complete with gas fireplace and whirlpool tub; a huge room with comfy king bed--also had a separate shower stall. The hotel is immaculate--we travel with our pets so Motel 6 is always safe bet,but this is the nicest we've stayed in in the Western states. Stayed an extra night as there's so much to enjoy...
