Just the basics, at this clean, perfectly adequate motel. Close to the beach, Monterey, and CSUMB. Hard to beat the fair price in this area. It looks like they have recently given the place a fresh newer look, with fresh paint and fresh flower boxes. Tidy and comfortable. Claudia S.

The room was clean but even though it said non smoking room there was the scent of cigarettes. We stayed 2 days. First day we went shopping at the Gilroy outlet and bought some items. Brought our items into the room and placed it under the desk. Went out the next day to tour Monterey. The next day we were... More

My wife and I stayed at the Sand Castle in April 2014. Our car was being repaired so it was an unexpected stop of our vacation in California. Clean, reasonably priced, basic breakfast, handy to most services and shops. Good value

Overall a very nice, simple motel. The walls are thin but that is not uncommon. We stayed with a 3 month and 5 1/2 year old kids. They were quite but if we had an unexpected outburst I'm sure our neighbors would have notice. There was a slight issue with our room. We asked to be moved to a different... More

The proprietor was not very personable, but that is easy to get past. Even so this will be my first choice when in the area. Lots of hot water, new bathroom area, etc. All I want is a clean comfortable room at a fair price. I'm here to visit Laguna Seca Racetrack and the hotel is just across the street... More

Clean, recently remodeled bathroom, comfortable bed, reasonably priced when we went. It's on a corner and there wasn't much traffic on either street on a Friday night - early Sat. Microwave, fridge, hair dryer, iron in the room. Continental breakfast with juice, cereal, muffins, toast and make-your-own waffles. Location is convenient to shopping, CSUMB, Laguna Seca. Probably 15 minutes drive... More

Clean room, friendly service, comfortable beds, reasonable price. 15 minutes away from Cannery Row and in a reasonably nice part of town. Also located conveniently next to a Target. We would absolutely stay here again, zero complaints.

Stayed here while taking a scuba diving trip in Monterey. The hotel really doesn't have much to offer other than just a room, but we found it to be very clean and comfortable. It's definitely a functional hotel that does a good job of serving the purpose of sleeping but that's about it. The location is really good for diving... More
