Just stayed here for 2 nights for a Monterey trip. The hotel is located about 10-20 minutes drive to most tourist attractions such as 17 mile drive, Cannery row, Fishermen's Wharf, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel, etc. And you don't have drive long ways to get on the highway. It seems to be easy to get around there without much traffic.... More

I stayed here 4 years ago & thought it was a "good buy" and coming back now, I think it is even slightly better. Based on past experience, I asked for a room on the top floor & facing the opposite site of the ocean (and highway & traffic noise). I got Room 517, a corner room facing the little... More

The rooms were clean but small for a family. The a/c worked well for a warm Monterey weekend. This is a plus as many local hotels have no a/c. The hotel was very loud as the rooms opened outside so each time someone walked by or rolled luggage we could hear. Complimentary breakfast was nice with a variety of offerings.... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel! I am sorry that you felt uncomfortable. Seeing a police car in our parking lot is very very rare and could happen to any location. We are in a very safe neighborhood actually the Monterey Bay area has a good reputation. We do offer security on the weekends... More

We stayed here a week ago. Room was very comfortable after we had been in the car for several hours. We wanted to be close to all the Monterey attractions and this was it. Got a good night's sleep and great breakfast the next morning. Was packing up and realized I had left my purse in the breakfast room. Panicked... More

My friend and I booked a last minute reservation here on out Pacific Coast Highway trip up from San Diego. What great staff they have, as we were referred to an awesome restaurant on the pier for dinner and they were very helpful. The rooms were a good size and the beds were very comfortable. I would stay here again... More

THis is a well priced, well run motel in an area where prices an soar or accommodations can be Motel Six quality. Our room was extremely comfortable, had an ample amount of space and a bed that put me to sleep quickly. The staff is friendly and warm. The breakfast is huge with many choices but is, as you would... More

We stayed on the top floor and having read the reviews we knew to choose a room on the back side of the hotel. It was extremeley quiet and we... More

Very dated, in need of a power washing and deep cleaning. The new reception building and desk staff get an A, but the motel behind is in need of updating, cleaning, freshening. The bathroom was circa 1960, the linens worn, the bed old, the air conditioner just adequate, terrific highway noise comes in, the price was VERY high (more than... More
