It's been written here in reviews about rudeness of the owners but for a Finn like me, it was only right-to-the-point communication which I appreciated. And the man was actually quite friendly after first encounter. ☺ All in all: good location, cheap, everything one needs, coffee ready always at the reception (free of charge) and good breakfast place within 100m...

Payed a great price through an online booking company so I expected it to be run-down and shady. Here are my brief thoughts on my own experience: Easy check-in, nice owner, clean room, cable TV, pretty quick wi-fi, simple free breakfast, close to all the Monterey attractions. Only down side is the walls were a bit thin. Overall, though, great... More

First off, I know what I was paying for this room (not much) and I know what a cheap hotel room is like. Thin, rough towels? Yeah, comes with the territory. Outdated decor? Who cares? I just want a place to sleep. Surly service? Meh, not that big a deal to me. If I want a concierge to be my... More

Large room, and king size bed. The sheets and towels were clean and they provided a basic breakfast which consisted of cereal and pastries and coffee just enough to get you going. There was a fridge but no coffee making facilities. There were a few restaurants nearby by but with a bus stop outside you could easily catch a bus... More

RUDE!!!! I have rarely met tenants this rude. On top of it, people tried to get into our room at 1am and were really loud. Breakfast was more than scarce and room smelled like smoke. I guess it is what you expect for the price but improvements are definitely in order!

A large clean room with no coffee machine, except for breakfast, no microwave, three pillows for two people all of which are thin and cheap, two out of three lamps working in the ceiling, no ice-bucket and a fridge that is old, noisy and rattles when switching off. It was not running when we arrived. For $313 this is a... More

Older looking Inn, however, beautiful flowers etc make it look quaint. Friendly and helpful staff, a moderate but good breakfast, cereal and milk and orange juice along with fresh pastries. Great room with a very comfortable bed, very clean!!!! Highly recommend this Inn to stay close to Monterrey, without paying the high price. When I visited the Monterrey Visitors center,... More

By checking reviews and paying almost $200 a night for an adjoining room I thought it would be a lot better then it was. The rooms were crammed with furniture, air conditioning in only one room the wifi didn't work and the refrigerator looked to be from the 60s and was unplugged and in the bath room. It was clean,...

This place is dingy and a bit creepy. The service at the desk was rude and the office smelled very strongly (though not totally badly!) of curry. The rooms were big but dingy and the bathroom was very sketch. That said, its cheap, and we were there like 9 total hours.
