“Not for more than a night's stay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2007

If you are on business and need a place for the night, this is it. Very small rooms, no microwave and no fridge. The plaque on the door said four people could stay in this room and the maximum charge could be up to $500. I say WHERE and NO WAY? The room had 3 1/2 feet of space from the bed to the wall on one side and maybe 1 foot of space from the bed to the wall on the other side. About 3 feet of space from the end of the bed to the tv amoire and desk. And, it was only one uncomfortable queen size bed. There were only two pillows and they were very small pillows. We needed more pillows and towels and when I called the front desk I was told to "come get them yourself". Housekeeping did not refill our coffe packets and when we went to the front desk to get some, we were told that they ran out and hadn't ordered anymore. All three mornings, the so called continental breakfast was nowhere to be seen. The only good note is that the night clerk was able to direct us to a good chinese restaurant. Menus can be found at the front desk. If you are looking for comfort and are staying more than a night, find somewhere else to stay!

  • Liked — It was a block to the beach
  • Disliked — Lack of comfort, roominess, cost for what you received

This hotel is located a short walk from a wonderful beach. My family spent thet day having a great time here. The hotel has a continental breakfast that was very nice and the room was very clean.

Beautiful location location next to state beach and main
Highway to Monterey, but not much else around it. Room was clean and well maintained but small. One had to travel 10 minutes to Monterey for activities other then the beach,
but that is what keeps the price reasonable. Complimentary
breakfast was sparse, but not a lot of guests in December
may account for that.

  • Liked — reasonable price and beach location
  • Disliked — room seemed small

Stayed here because it was the only thing available for less than $300 ... can't compare to any other Monterey-area motels, but at $150/night this was the worst value of any place I've ever stayed. This is a large and noisy motel with small rooms, furnished in a verrrry basic manner. It is close to the beach, which is nice.

This hotel really gave me nothing to complain about. It was cheaper than the Motel 6 down the road, and much better in every respect.

It is now a Quality Inn, not a Super8.

  • Liked — price
  • Disliked — hilly front driveway
  • Tips/Secrets — This place is cheaper and much nicer than the Motel6

We spent two nights from July 28th to 29th. We had a Queen size bed and two thin pillows. It was not possible to get more pillows. Breakfast is self serve from a corner of the small lobby, mainly donuts, and cereal that you need to line up for.
The room was freezing. We were awoken at 7:00 AM by two people yelling in the pool three floors below ours. We could also hear the highway from our room.
When the maid made up the room, she left opened sachets of sugar, and did not supply anymore.
The carpet was dirty and the sheets smelled like chlorine. The bedspread looked worn.
The only good thing was the proximity to Carmel. I recommend people stay there.
Our stay was very unpleasant.

  • Liked — The proximity to Carmel
  • Disliked — The chlorine smell of the sheets, towels and water.
  • Tips/Secrets — It does not look as nice as on the photos.
