We had a group of 5 adults in one room and the beds were comfortable, the window opened so we could smell the ocean air. They offer coffee and juice in the morning. They had a small refrigerator in the room and that was nice. They also have a washer and dryer available.

I have stayed at this hotel before. Minus the parking it was a nice hotel. Then came to this visit. My family and I went to bed. My side of the bed was right next to the window. I woke up to a MAN all in black coming through my window. HOLY CRAP!!!! I screamed like crazy. He ran away.... More

Dirty rooms. Parking (very little). Pick this hotel only if you have a car. Only suitable to sleep and take a bath. Close to a shopping area, but a kittle bit far from Monterey. I'd not reccomend this hotel.

This was probably one of the worst hotels we have ever stayed at. The room very small, dingy, dirty, patched walls, no luggage racks, no credenza, no clock, no Kleenex, no ice bucket, bed not comfortable, pillows were like pancakes, road noise was very loud, room walls very thin, lots of noise from adjacent rooms, very little parking and area...

We found an amazing deal online, far cheaper than any other hotel in the area, so my expectations were pretty low already. The hotel is right off the freeway, so convenient for sure! Not far were shops and eateries as well. It's not the best neighborhood so don't go for an evening stroll if you're smart. The hotel manager was... More

The location is ok, just a few minutes from Monterey and Cannery Row, sort of just on the side of a road. Parking lot is too small in size and capacity and awkward to navigate. The room smelled very strange, my daughter thought it smelled like celery, maybe bad celery. The linens were rough and didn't stay on the bed,... More

I can't say too much about the motel that's overly negative. For two business travelers, staying for three nights, it fit the bill and saved us some money. The good: Room was clean, check-in and extending for a night was smooth & hassle-free. The mediocre: Vending machines lack variety and parking is a bit of a premium space-wise. The bad:... More

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
