False advertising Nasty property Liars and cheats Save yourself the headache and stay in your car if you have to -- it would be much safer! Refused to honor online reservation even with conf #. Offered same room for almost twice as much. When I called booking.com to make sure my card wasn't charged, they had my reservation in system... More

Stopper was up with light brown liquid with floties. When we informed the management they they thanked us and said they... More

I stayed here a year ago for about $50/night. This year, on the same weekend, they want $340/night. I can stay in a Hilton for $340/night. This is a beatup, not renovated in 20 years joint with a $70 Travelodge next door and the nearest restaurant six blocks away. Frankly, last year's rate was a bit much; this year is... More

I know you get what you pay for but we did not pay for that. Room took us back to 1990, place is old and not kept up at all. I will not stay at this place again. Breakfast was non-existent. Juice machine did not work and they did not really have anything other then a few muffins, coffee and... More

Terribly disappointed. The room was dirty. The TV and remote was broken. Two lights didn't turn on. The baseboards were separated from the wall where bugs were found. The stove was filthy. Tile was missing from the bathroom sink. The screen was ripped and the window did not lock. I'm very easy to please and don't complain but this hotel... More

A 4 star hotel rate during Monterey week in a deplorable 1/2 star(less) condition should forewarn attendees to plan WAY ahead of time to avoid this place. The only consolation is the clean towels and basic bedding sheets plus the available hot water.

We stopped in late in the evening and were charged $200 for a room with a bathroom that had obviously not been cleaned. There was hair in the shower and a build up of scum on the soap holder. The main bed had a huge dip in the mattress. Carpet was disgusting. To top it off, I woke up with... More

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
