Don't be scared off by the retro appearance on the outside. The staff is super friendly, rooms have nice amenities and look to have been upgraded recently. The location is right near a couple streets filled with restaurants, pubs and shops. We had a room on the first floor near the stairs so it was a little noisey at night... More

Thank you for a great 5 Star review. You have mentioned 3 restaurants that are all walking distance from us. Turn 12 has a racing car theme with very good food and a nice bar, Lallapallooza is one of the finer eating and drinking establishments and the Brew Pub is brand new. Thanks for the tips and the very positive... More

Thank you for a 4 star review. We appreciate your review and will comment that our furniture is in great shape having been installed new in 2009. Our breakfast is considered an expanded continental breakfast which is listed as a continental breakfast. Some visitors seem to expect something more or a full range of hot items. What we do offer...

Rooms open directly to the outside: a gas station and a busy road junction. Noise from within the hotel and from outside was a major problem. Doors banging, voices, motorbikes, cars, lorries. We did not have a good night's sleep. Our room was a good size but dated. The shower room in particular was in need of renovation. There was... More

This is an older style motel but the room was spacious enough, clean and served our purposes for the two nights we stayed here at the right price. We appreciated the breakfast in the morning, there was certainly enough to get us going. The motel also had free WiFi. The bed was comfortable which is always a plus when you... More

The Travelodge in Monterey Bay was a great place to stay. The staff were so friendly, happy to help, answer questions and provide local knowledge and tips. The room was a good size, functional as you would expect from a motel such as travelodge. It was very clean and had good heater/air con (we used both!), coffee maker, shower, safe... More

Staff were helpful and friendly. Location is easy to find and you can walk to the fishermans wharf in 10 mins which is great. We had a 2 double bed room which meant plenty of space and although there is a busy road nearby it was fairly quiet. The bathroom was the rooms only let down, it was tired and... More

Thank you for your review. You felt our rooms were clean and tidy and you had a good stay. You noticed we are in the center of Monterey which means you can walk 10 to12 minutes and be at the Fisherman's Wharf, the Recreational Trail or Monterey Beach. We are close to over 40+ restaurants as well. See you on... More
