Very disappointed. The pictures are deceiving online. Once we arrived, this is clearly a motel not a hotel. The price we paid for 1 night was unacceptable with the appearance of this establishment. Beds and pillows were uncomfortable and the shower had a strange odor.

Frequently used ashtray located right outside the window of my "smoke free" room. Rock hard pillows. Intermittent wifi. Bathroom fixtures were very tight and difficult to turn on even with 2 hands. Water in shower would go from scalding to cold. Breakfast area is crammed together so a crowd gathers when there are just a few people trying to get... More

We were in Monterey for an evening wedding and wanted to stay overnight. The prices everywhere were very high because several big annual events were going on that weekend. So we chose one that was at the lower end of these peninsula-wide high prices (normally this hotel is a good price and good value). We were very happy with it.... More

This is an old school average at best motel that is in need of a good cleaning of furnishings and rugs. The room we had did not have a screen on the window in the bathroom and the shower curtain was not long enough to stay in the bath tub during showering. The place doesn't focus on the details that...

This hotel is fine if you just want a place to sleep. However, it is getting a bit rundown. Internet doesn't work very well. We had to climb rather creaky outdoor stairs to our room. It is quite close to Cannery Row and the wharf areas, but not walking distance.

I am appalled that some reviewers found their beds comfy. I wonder if they stayed at the same place (I hesitate to call it a hotel). Mine was totally out of shape and should have been trashed a long time ago. My neck and shoulders hurt like hell every morning. The faucets were so hard to pull. I had to... More

Stayed for two nights on 5th and 6th August at the Park Crest. The rooms are fairly basic but with comfortable beds. The pool is tiny and the breakfast room is totally inadequate in size for the number of guests. That said, I found the staff most helpful.

Spent 2 nights in Monterey and found a room with 2 queen beds available here. Comfy beds and quite a spacious space. Walls are quite thin so noise carries if noises neighbours and there is no AC so left windows (covered by fly screens) open at front and in bathroom to get some breeze through, which added to hearing every...
