“Wifi, what wifi?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

We were making our way from San Fran to Los Angeles via highway 1 and decided to stay in Monterey as a first stop. We ended up at this hotel as there was a music convention on and rooms were hard to find. The room was ok, clean and with an adequate bathroom. Bed not all that comfortable, thin towels, awful breakfast, bad coffee. We were assured there was wifi. It was accessible from the carpark but not in the room. We had intended to stay in Monterey for 2 days but left ASAP and headed to Carmel.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

It's strange when your almost 63 year old husband (a California native) remembers staying some place when he was in highschool. Even I recall this motel, with its roses outside, from my early Monterey days in 1974. The good news? It was easily $20 less than either of the other two we'd inquired about staying. The owners were pleasant (believe me, there were a couple this trip that were downright surly!), the rooms were updated and clean enough, and the breakfast was adaqate. The noise from the street wasn't anywhere near a problem, but then we were in about 6:30 p.m. and out again around 8 a.m. I honestly don't remember the rooms being dirty or the linens being tatty (i remember the hotel where they WERE, and this wasn not it). Bottom line: you could do a lot worse, even for $98, but several hotels we stayed in (this trip) in this price range were nicer or had better breakfasts.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room just to the left of the office (as you face the motel) and had no undue traffi...

We spend last week in Monterey at this facility. The towels are small and paper thin, the bed is terrible, The fan in the bathroom is so loud you can not hear anything else espcet the fan in the next room which is just as loud as yours. The fornt door was very dirty on the inside and there is not safety lock on the door.
You are very close to the street and you hear cars all night long.

The ivy and roses outside were lovely. The first room we saw was moldy, the second was better. Only some rooms had two keys. Towels were thin and small, sheets had holes. Walls were thin. The weekend price was exorbitant, breakfast was boring, Costco muffins and cornflakes, but the worst was the night I was sick and noticed the toilet hadn't been properly cleaned under the rim, in years. I requested that hey clean it, but they only cleaned the seat.
Outside our door was a bowl of cigarette butts, on top of the air con. was a bar of pink soap. It was conveniently located, that's the best I can say.

I was disappointed with what the motel offered for how much I paid to stay there. It is right on Del Monte Ave (a main, busy street) and we could hear the cars zipping by all night long. The beds were cheap and the walls were paper thin - we listened to our neighbor snoring away in between the speeding cars. The breakfast included with the room consisted of poor coffee, muffins cut into slices and dry cereal - not exactly what I was expecting. The only perk was that the place was clean.

So where to start.......

Holes in the non-fitted sheets
Mold all over shower curtain
Hole in door of bathroom
Office says open, but they won't let you inside for utensils/microwave
Bed was stained and uncomfortable... Really uncomfortable
Super thin walls.....

Bottom line: go somewhere else.

we spent a happy enough evening here, based on a $50 price,it was good value, felt warm safe not too noisy, with internet too. Im fussy about beds, and it was pretty basic but only as you might expect for the price. The manager may have been slightly grumpy but the service was perfectly acceptable, eg bringing us extra pillows. A place to stay if passing through on route 1 and on a budget.
