When booking I asked for a downstairs room with 2 beds since there were four of us and 3 of us are handicapped and 2 seniors. I was told they don't have ANY rooms with 2 beds downstairs. I figure we'll grin and bare the steps. We were able to see into other empty rooms and they do have rooms... More

This place was horrible. DO NOT STAY HERE! I woke up at 2 AM to bed bugs on my face and arms. Panicked I called the manager who said she didn't receive any complaints the night before so I was lying. She said if I didn't like her hotel to leave. Worst hotel experience EVER. Obtaining a refund was also... More

I did not like this place whatsoever. While checking in the employee was talking on his cell phone and had unnecessary sun glasses on (and not the prescription kind). He was polite, I'll give him that. So me and my bf got our room key and went to our room. The room looked like it was poorly renivated. They had... More

Floors were dirty. Wifi so-so. Shower filthy. Not sure if there were critters in the bedding or not! Should be closed down by the Department of Health. Continental Breakfast was what expected. Coffee, juice and toast. Worst $130.00 I ever spent.

I spent two nights here - very comfortable. I checked in at 1 AM, the registration was quick and yes, the room door opened easily! Comfortable and Clean bed - Neat bathroom! It was a great value (and location) for what I paid. The rooms did not smell musty ... The chair seats were stained - and that was the... More

While wanting to visit beautiful Big Sur and Carmel I decided to fly into San Jose Airport, rent a car and drive to Monterey to stay for the duration on my visit. Upon checking in, it went quickly and I found my room. It took my at least 5 minutes to open my door. Not sure if it was sticking... More

First off I want to say that we are not ritzy types that live in the lap of luxury. We usually stay in Motel 6 or Best Western style hotel/motels. However this place literally disgusting. Shower hardware falling out of the wall, plug outlet covers broken in half, carpet that literally turned your feet black just from walking across it... More

Booked because of the cheap price and location. Trash cans weren't emptied from previous people, but sheets and bathroom were clean. Advertised free wifi but it was so spotty and with such a low signal, I couldn't even use it. Free continental breakfast was just toast and coffee.

We made the mistake of booking a 4 night stay here and my heart sank when I entered the room - it smelt so musky. If money was no object I would have just found somewhere else. The beds were made daily and the sheets were clean, but the blankets covering the beds were so revolting I would not let... More
