The hotels in this areas are all fairly old, but this one was updated a few years ago and while it shows some age, it was still very warm and inviting. The room was pretty small, but not too small, if that makes sense. Like the hotels of its time, the windows are thin and the gaps around the doors... More

From check in with Tramra, to our great room, this was one wonderful stay. The pool and hot tub were a welcome after a day of driving. Location is very good, just a mile from the bay. Free parking free breakfast, not much more you could ask for.

We were quite excited to stay at the hotel based on the reviews at Tripadvisor. But we were extremely disappointed. We stayed in room 102 and we could hear every time they washed their hands one floor up, every time someone went by the room it sounded like they were literally walking inside the room and I could go on....

This was our last 2 night stop after 2,500 miles and 12 days on the road. The reviews were not encouraging but I was pleasantly suprised by how lovely this hotel is. I can undersatnd that it is not to everyones taste, but for us it had everything that we needed including a really good sized pool that I enjoyed... More

Quite frankly I don't understand the negative reviews of this motel. Our room was excellent and the motel was very quiet. Of the 8 motels we stayed at on this trip the room was tied for first. When I am back in Monterey I will stay at the Mariposa again.

A 20 minute walk out of the centre of Monterey, this establishment didn't fill us with enthusiasm when we first arrived but the uninspiring exterior masked what was a pleasant and good sized room that was well equipped and air conditioned. No problems with cleanliness and everything worked. The breakfast was adequate though the dining area was a bit small... More

I arrived at this hotel after getting a refund due to very unsanitary conditions at the hotel I booked. This hotel was much better and I was for the most part satisfied. The hotel was clean it was well-kept, the staff was very friendly and the rooms were decent We were a bit confused as we booked two identical rooms... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on our trip up the Pacific Coast Highway and it was a big mistake. I'm genuinely surprised how this 'Hotel' has received positive reviews. The photographer that took their pics for their site must be a genius. Compare my photos and the ones on the site. Where do i begin. 1/ No air-conditioning for... More

We had two rooms for one night. The good---location was easy to find and access Carmel & Monterey. The bad---well, were do I start. The mold all over the shower & bathroom told us immediately that cleaning procedures & standards are not a priority here. See pics. The A/C unit -wall type-- was quite noisy and had to be shut...
