My reservation was from Thur through Monday. A day before I found out I would not be checking out on Monday, but on Sunday, but I needed the room Wed. When I got there they said I could not switch the days. So I ended paying for Wed. If your into shopping on tv then this is the place for... More

I'm a hotel snob, if you will. My 3 year old daughter and I stayed here one night. For an inexpensive budget motel I was quite pleased. Staying in a cheaper motel I can point out numerous obvious problems which most of them have, but overall my stay was very good. Pros: Rooms equipped with desk, table & chairs, fridge,... More

Stayed here in August of 2013 for one night...thank goodness that was all. The entire property was filthy including the room which looked like it had been redone in 1975. The hotel room door was extremely unsafe and a party of some sort went on in the parking lot below our room until 2:39 in the morning. Dirty bathroom with... More

A good price value stay. Location is not the best if your stay is focused on Monterey. Staff is friendly and rooms are decently clean. Free wireless internet available. Noisy for the rooms close to the main street which has high traffic all night long.

My husband and I, with two friends, had the misfortune to book a stay in this hotel. The carpet in Rm# 133 was absolutely disgusting. Our friends' room was no better. I came out of the shower walked across it and my feet were black. The pool area was dirty and I have no doubt a health hazard. The water... More

200 words cannot describe how bad this hotel was. Booked in for 3 days but left straight away. Everything was either filthy dirty, rusty or broke. Car park area covered in cigarette ends. Pool chairs rusty and broke. Pool water not clear. Unhelpful management. Now complaining to Choice Hotels with photo proof. Ended up staying over the road in the... More

This hotel is worse than a Motel 6. I think it is very overpriced. Furniture was outdated, bathroom looked dirty, exposed pipes hidden behind a chair, safe in the room that cannot be used unless you pay extra...Noisy....Door sticky...you had to push it really hard to open...Seedy place....it felt dirty....I will never go there again...

We needed a place for a night in the Monterey area and every other hotel was almost complete but the Econo Lodge, And now I know why. For over 100$ we had: rude receptionist, in a dirty office. Dirty room with a dirty bath and a broken shower. The breakfast was "served" in the same dirty office of the reception.... More
