Friendly staff, decent size room (although the carpet had a lot of ground-in dirt and really needed a good shampoo), nice bathroom facilities and very clean. Breakfast is the very basic Comfort Inn stuff, but they didn't do a very good job of cleaning up and keeping up with food refills. Very limited space, so you had to move fast... More

Our first impressions on pulling into the hotel, confirms its more of a motel than hotel. Yes there are lovely plants, but that was about our only positive. The room was small, the shower room very small. The sink was in the main sleeping area, which we found very odd. The air conditioning unit very loud, the hotel walls very... More

We take pride in our hotel and collectively we are extremely disappointed that your stay was certainly not a good experience. I hope... More

We had the chance to have a very large bathroom with a ceramic shower ! Free parking just in front of our room. Free wifi in the room. This is a very... More

We were only staying 1 nite, but still received a very warm welcome at the front desk. A very nice room for the money, clean and spacious. Continental breakfast had hot food and all was delicious. Munras Ave location is convenient to downtown Monterey.

It was a small but very clean room. There was a yummy, warm breakfast in the morning. We were able to take our Lacey girl doggie, which is important to us when traveling. It was a good value for a basic room you just want to sleep in, not spend a lot of time in.

This hotel was no where what i expected for the money-the only thing good was its location--the shower drain would stick causing me to manually hold it up from time to time to allow the water to drain-the desk lamp had one burned out bulb and one that was about to fall off-the room was musty-the pool was being cleaned...
