The location is good for those who are looking for something cheap nearby Monterrey and Carmel. The rooms are wide, the restroom is ok, TV working good, wi-fi is free and the best part is that there are elevators. They are old too, but work. Breakfast is makeshift in a small room. It´s good for only one night.

Last minute trip left little options for rooms. Used Hotwire to get a 2-star room for a reasonable price. I should have spent the extra money to know where I was staying. Room was musty smelling. Bed spreads were very worn and needed replacing. Walls were dirty. Spent as little time as we could in the room. Would not recommend... More

The hotel is situated in a good location if you are driving to Monterey. The room was not very clean, the continental breakfast was very low quality. However, the beds were comfortable. The internet connection was not very stable. For a one night stay it was OK, but definitely not OK for more.

This motel was great for a stopover, not in a great location, good for driving into Monterey. Reception staff were excellent. Bathroom good with good shower. Breakfast room was adequate and the food good.

A Little bit more variety at breakfast than other Motels. The staff was friendly and answered our questions. Unfortunately very dark rooms with no air condition and not so clean. But it was ok for one night and not so expensive...

Nothing special about this place, as the other reviewers said it is old and outdated. The beds don't have a pillow-top so you feel the springs but was surprisingly not bad to sleep on. The bathroom does has a bathtub though which is a plus. The breakfast was ok, but the lady setting it up was very rude. The front... More

If you need a place to stay and everything else is booked or too expensive, this place is just fine. The exterior needs some TLC and the rooms themselves are dated, but they are clean. It's true that the mattresses need to be replaced but surprisingly they were not really that uncomfortable to sleep on. Coffee makers and free wifi... More

After seeing the room i said NO THIS WILL NOT DO......the room was old with an old fashion tv and a stained carpet.....he refunded my money... More
