This motel is not worth the 150€ I paid as the walls are paper thin and the clb next door is very loud all night long ! I did call the reception several times : they said they called the police after my 3rd call bit no change. For a hotel that pretends to be at 300€ this is totally... More

I am very particular where I stay. I would highly recomend this motel to everyone. Price very reasonable and room very clean. The only issue I had was accessing the wifi. Breakfast had a very good variety

Stayed for two nights with hubby and 7 year old. To be perfectly honest the only thing I have to moan about is the fact that the young man on reception kept several people waiting whilst he was talking on the phone ( business or pleasure, he really should of ended the call sooner) . The rooms were clean and... More

Small but comfortable. Very clean and bed was comfortable. About four doors down was a party, but they quit about midnight and weren't so overly loud that we wanted to complain. All in all it was a nice place to stay; we'll be back.

This was all in all a great place to stay. Not far from any attractions. The only problem is that the bed me and my wife slept on was noisy every time we made any movement. They said a new one is coming, but of course, we'll be gone. Otherwise, it was pleasant.

We stayed for 2 nights on 4th and 5th July. Overall a pleasant stay. The room was well suited to our party of 5. We had a double room and a family room in one suite. The furniture was looking a little tired and only having one toilet was a problem especially as it was in the same room as... More

We stayed here for a noght while visiting the neighboring attractions. The hotel is very basic, but this is what we were looking for. The room and shower were clean and fresh. Breakfast rich and tasty. The one negative point I have - they did not have a rollaway bed, which meant all three kids had to share one queen... More

this place was fine for a quick stop- room was clean- bed was comfortable- staff was very friendly. It was very close to the airport and other amenities around town. At $69.99 you cant go wrong. The only complaint was my closet doo rhad been kicked in by someone and had a huge hole on the bottom that no one... More

The El Castell is a landmark motel in North Monterey. The staff is professional and the room was spotless. Brand new bed and bedding apparently made the rest excellent overall. The disco next door kept me up two out of three nights. The t.v. was good to watch at that time. The pool is a perfect lap pool at a... More

During our stay we could sleep well, the room was clean and had enough space por 3 people. We stayed in a two queen bed room. Breakfast was good if we compare to other motels and hotels that we had. Unfortunately, like all the places we´ve stayed in, it had carpet on the floor, which I think it is very... More
