Basic property next to the freeway. The 2nd and 3rd floors can be noisy from the street and freeway. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was basic. The manager gave us a good tip for dinner down the street at the Mexican restaurants.

We were in town a bit late, to settle up with our Income Tax preparer who lives right next door. We would not have come so far south if not for that proximity. It was May 2013. This is a smaller district loaded with National Brand hospitality but we examined all of those and were not inspired - literally Quality... More

This property offers location and a decent room for those wanting an affordable place within 30 mins drive of Monterey. I was able to Priceline the property at the last minute and called the hotel to request a room with 2 Queen beds. Manager on duty was incredibly rude on the phone and adamant that we had to pay a...

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at our hotel. I am sorry you were disappointed on this occasion, and I apologize for any inconvenience you experienced. However, you mention a "guarantee" by Priceline for two beds. This was obviously was not the case and we had no option but to charge you an upgrade... More

Rooms are clean, however everything else is old, the windows are single-pane, given it is right next to highway, the rooms are very noisy with all the traffic. Fairly basic, easy access to major traffic routes. Staff is friendly.

As other have mentioned this is not a new facility - the management is reinvesting in this property & it shows. I stop here to rest & relax - easy done done in the quiet clean king room they saved for me. I appreciate the solid roller chair & large desk with plenty of light. Legends Grill with it's good...

Quality Inn is a hotel chain that varies from very good to really bad. This one is in between but on the low side. Unfortunately it is just below the acceptable line for me so I won't be staying there again. It is an older hotel that has seen a lot of use and the result is dirty carpets, old... More
