This place was cheap for the area, so I wouldn't gripe, but seemed like questionable people were living there. Every time I left my room a large dog down the corridor barked threateningly. The room next to us had muffled rock music going until 5AM accompanied by a woman whooping intermittantly! Somewhere, earlier in the evening, I could hear a... More

Absolutely worst hotel I have ever come close to staying in! I was overbooked on a traveling agency website which I also do not recommend (booking.com), and was referred to stay here.The people there were rude and unpleasant and the whole hotel looks like a warehouse so naturally I was frightened to see the rooms. I was told that they... More

Stayed only one night, view of a homeless encampment out my window, noisy and on a main road. Overpriced but the room interior was nice and clean, the furniture was newer and the bed was comfortable. Left my phone charger in the room and guess what happened when I called...YOU GUESSED IT "WE DON'T HAVE IT". Took forever to get... More

This place is a serious dump. It's very noisy; practically right on top of a very busy street and close to the freeway. Dirty and run down on the outside. Stench of Indian food permeates. Room itself wasn't horrible; actually fairly roomy. Family of owners hung around and kept door to service facilities open so their private discussions were broadcast... More

I'll start with the not-so-good. The room was pretty stuffy and there was no fan or air conditioning. Granted, it's usually cool in Seaside but the room just had some stale air, and it would have been nice to move it around a bit. Opening the window was fine but the motel is on a fairly busy street so it... More

This small motel is right on the main road, just off the freeway and backs onto a shopping mall complex. So, it's location is convenient for a quick stopover and that's probably all you'd want from it. We had been travelling around the US and stayed in a few ABVI's so got their loyalty card, which is actually free. You... More

BOOKED THIS THROUGH EXPEDIA SPECIAL - NEVER AGAIN. This hotel is on a very busy street with high traffic noise. The parking is horrendous. We were parked in what looked like a legal zone of the "small" lot but were called about an hour after we had parked to move our car without explanation? The room was nice and clean... More

My family and I recently went to this motel for a weekend vaycay. We rented about 6 rooms and it was not bad. Great price for Monterey area and there is a refridgerator, shower, tv, wifi and dark curtains so you don't get woken up by the sun if you came in late. I must say I have stayed in... More
