I've stayed at this motel many times. The customer service is excellent. Runal checked me in and he managed to get me in my room within minutes. The manager Johnny and his wife are very friendly and they are very caring towards there guest. This hotel by far is the best family hotel in monterey county. Cindy and Richard

We stayed here for the Spartan race that occurred a little down the road. The traffic noise was okay but could bother others. The people adjacent to our room slammed the door several times throughout the night and walls were thin. Overall nice staff.

We were travelling from San Francisco to LA and we had to spent the night somewhere. The only hotel with vacancy was this. I am allergic so I can not stand smoke smell, we asked for a non smoking room but it was impregnated in such a disgusting smoke smell that I had to sleep in the van. The hotel... More

Stayed in a queen room, which is about 15 feet from 101. Very noisy. Sheets were not clean, asked for another set of sheets, which also had all sorts of stains on it. Mold in the shower. Just not a clean hotel room. I recommend staying somewhere else.

We just needed a bed to sleep on and this was perfect for that. The breakfeast was served late at 8am and there was only cereal and a cheap pastry. But for the price we paid ($59) it was worth it. It was right next to the highway so you could hear the cars going by so if you are... More

There have previously been some pretty bad reviews of this place, including the management. We stayed here in early August, 2014 and found the place to be perfectly priced and the manager, Mr. Peter Patel to be what you would expect and excellent manager to be. Due to poor planning on my part, we arrived a day before my reservations... More

If you are just staying for a night and not planning any time in the room, it's affordable. The room wasn't bad. It was clean, the showers had water pressure, and bed was ok. I did have problems connecting to the wifi, but didn't really mind. The hotel is off a freeway and is a little remote. Being near the... More

My sister and I traveled here to see the Steinbeck Museum (which was great!) but this motel was just horrible. The room wasn't clean (a used Q-tip sat next to the sink and a long black hair on the toilet), the phone didn't work, and the "breakfast" didn't start until 8:00 am. Maybe to save those pesky travelers from stopping... More

I have to say it wasn't bad. Yes the carpet was stained and I found a few hairs on the sheets. The linens were clean, I had plenty of towels, and there was a microwave and fridge that worked very well. The water pressure was great and my shower was hot. The bed was fairly comfortable as well. The ice... More
