This is a very clean, well maintained, older motor motel on "Old "Route 66". It was a joy! It's not plush, but the room was large and super clean. The owners obviously take great pride in their property. We didn't have a chance to use the pool but it was lovely. It is a short walk to the Old Town... More

Our room was large and clean. A plus was free wi-fi and a helpful and friendly owner/operator. This is not a fancy room, but was very comfortable. The hotel is only a few blocks from the plaza which has some nice shopping opportunties.

We really enjoyed our stay. The motel has a great location walking distance to Old Town, Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Lots of resale & antique shops along route 66. The pool was immaculate as were the grounds and the rooms. Liked the roses & flowers that the owner has growing around the property, felt like real European hospitality and the... More

We stayed 4 nights in the Monterey and it was great. i don't understand the fuzz about the owner at all: he was nice and helpful; that it is a strict non-smoking motel, was for us a relief: how many times during our travels we got a so-called non-smoking room, and afterwards (after the air-co was on in the evening),...

Not sure where the rave reviews for this place are coming from. Don't stay in room 6 because the door doesn't lock and the shower head falls off and hits you in the head. The beds are uncomfortable and the rooms haven't been redecorated since the 60's. The rooms are very clean, so this is the only plus. When I... More

There were FOUR guests in the room after a reservation was made for two. Our lodging rates are based on number of occupants per room and this policy applies to all guests. We cannot treat any reservation differently in fairness to other guests. Based on our other more typical reviews, one can expect a very special experience with Monterey Non-Smokers... More

We almost thought we were going to be kicked out before we even checked in. The gentleman at the front desk asked if we smoked. My boyfriend admitted he did, and he had to practically swear on the bible that he wouldn't smoke in the room or anywhere on the property. He is an occasional smoker, and had no intention... More

In response to the posting, we are a 100% NON-SMOKING establishment - hence our name. We cater to travelers that are here to enjoy and expect the SMOKE-FREE environment. There is no smoking allowed in the rooms or anywhere on the premises. This policy is strictly enforced. We require shoes to be worn TO and FROM the swimming pool area.... More

After staying in tiny motel rooms for two nights on our trip, this family of 4 nearly cried with delight when we walked into our generously-sized room! We were thrilled to not be tripping over each other (the only downside to other old Route 66 motels.) The owners take obvious pride in their place and the rooms and pool were... More

Just a quick review. This is a great little motel. It couldn't be cleaner or better run. The pool is lovely and the rooms are quiet and spotless. And it is super reasonable. The Polish gentleman that owns it is always cranky. I tell people that it is actually "European Hostility" not European Hospitality as it says on the sign.... More

Based on the reviews, we stayed overnight at the Monterey Non-Smokers Motel. It was so refreshing to be able to walk into a room that smelled clean and fresh, and to walk around the grounds without having to smell cigarette smoke. The room was exactly as pictured on the website--a bit dated, but super clean. The grounds are very well-groomed,... More

Good sized room, quiet, mostly clean. Doormat and bedspreads a little dingy. The sheets felt like sleeping on newspaper. They had to have been like 50 thread count. Bathroom was clean enough for me to give my one year old a bath and I am particular about tubs. Didn't get to go in the pool but it looked very nice... More
