Large clean room, comfy bed, friendly staff. I wouldn't stray too far from the hotel on foot - sleazy neighbourhood..We chose this as a cheaper alternative to Monterey hotels and drove the short distance back and forth. It worked for us and we would probably stay again.

Our daughters softball team and families stayed her during a recent tournament, the staff were very accommodating of our needs, room changes, big crowds in the pool and hot tub and lending us the breakfast room for a team Chinese takeout. Would stay there again

Hotel itself was very nice - looked new or recently refurbished. Room was large, beds were comfortable. However, the pillows weren't terribly comfortable, the toilet clogged for no reason, the bathtub didn't drain properly, and the hot water was not consistent. Not sure if I'd stay here again.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Great breakfast in the morning! They really do everything they can to take care of you. Also, it is a short drive away from some beautiful places, like Monterey Bay. It was the perfect place to stay for what I needed. I loved it!

We stopped here when passing through for a visit to Pinnacles National Park following a long drive up the coast from Channel Islands National Park. Room was comfy and clean and hotel staff was friendly. The area was interesting with all the farming going on so we googled info and found out this is where a large portion of lettuce... More

Upon arriving late, we had our last full day at Yosemite National Park, for check in we were informed the first 3 nights had been cancelled due to the credit card not going through. We recently had a fraud issue and had been issued a new credit card number. They were... More

Requested a room on ground floor due to my husband's recent knee replacement and it was perfect. Do not usually take advantage of the free breakfast but had time and it was wonderful as well as their brewed coffee. No odd, stuffy odors in the room and it seemed spotless so I was impressed with that. The rates were high... More

i have stayed at this motel many times. It surpasses even many other Best Westerns in service and quality, especially the one almost next door which almost caught on fire and the owner refused to call the fire dept. Since then, we have always stayed here and never been sorry.
