12 miles north on 101 from Carmel, Del Monte off ramp (also 7 miles north of Monterey), in the town of Marina is a retro 50s era vintage motel: The old Marina Inn. When I travel and need a good rest the only important items are: clean & safe, quiet and a good bed. You park in front of your room at this single story motel. Everything except the beds are old and everything is clean and works. Little niceties included are kleenex, shampoo, a real shower door, and quality TP. In high season mid September 2012 I paid $63 for a single king bed room on Thursday and $83 on Friday. This is not a place to relax and hangout because there are no amenities such as pool, restaurant, or interesting immediate surroundings (that's why it is max 2 stars); it's a place to spend the night comfortably and inexpensively.
