“Great price / clean room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Stayed here with my wife and 2 kids over Christmas break room was clean and bathrooms were just remodeled. I didn't arrive until 11:00pm and the owner was awake awaiting our arrival as we were the last one checking in that evening. She was very friendly and even provided a map of the city and suggested fun family activities. Will definitely stay here again when in town.

Room Tip: There is even a "HONEYMOON" suite upon request.

Freshly and neatly painted, upgraded bathroom with granite counter top, granite bathwalls and floor. All very clean. Well cared for hotel, conveniently located. Safe spacious parking. Even though it is close to the freeway, we did not hear outside noise. Bed was comfortable, not too soft, nor too firm, but was not a "pillowtop". Nice Flat Screen TV, Microwave, fridge and coffee pot in room, however, the continental breakfast was nicely stocked, even had Raisin Bran Cereal, fresh fruit, and very nice tasting american coffee (not the burnedm over roasted, bitter, weak kind) so we didn't need the coffee pot, nor microwave.
Staff was very friendly and personable, even late at night, after hour check-in, the manager had already filled out all the forms for us, so our time checking in was minimal so we could get to our room quickly after a long hard drive. .

Wonderful, helpful staff. We forgot the studs for a tuxedo shirt (he forgot!) and the staff was most helpful in finding an alternative solution - flower pins....they worked.
Perfect room - very comfortable and spacious - very clean.

This was just a great experience overall. The location is off the main drag which was great for us. It was quiet and very clean. It came with a fridge, microwave and a very nice sized flat screen television. I highly recommend them.

My Wife and I were able to enjoy the pleasure of staying at the Stage Coach Lodge recently. We were more than pleased with the accomidations. Our room was amazing which included a four post king size bed, gas fire place and many wonderful touches,such as a huge flat screen tv over the fireplace, gold and black accents, crown molding and orchids, throughout the room.The staff was pleasant and personable. They were more than willing to help with directions, reservations at local restaurants and even helped us find a good local mechanic when our car broke down. The location is perfect. A short walk through a nice neighborhood and you're at the beach, Fishermans Warf, and a little farther to Cannery Row. We will definetly be returning to the Stage Coach Lodge in the future.
Next time we'd like to bring our children along. The owner, Sue, took time to tell us about all the fun Monterey has to offer to families. We're anxious to visit the amazing park right around the corner from the hotel. I know the Aquarium is great as well.
Wether you're planning a couples getaway, or a family vacation, the Stage Coach Lodge is where you should stay. You won't be dissappointed.

The room was very clean and neat and modern and very refreshing. Michael at the front desk was very helpful in suggesting the best places to eat and vistit. We are planning another vist very soon in the future. There was not enough time to vist all the attractions in two days. We had a wonderful time visiting all the sites just a short distance from the hotel.

Room Tip: excellent value

Very clean rooms. The owner is also the day manager and makes sure that anything that you might need is available. Very nice lady. There is a very adequate "continental" breakfast. Cereal, juice, danish, coffee, etc. I purposely had arrived in Monterey to judge the walkability of the town. This hotel is about 10 mins. walking to the central older town. I found it a nice walk, but the stoplight crossing lights leaves you waiting to cross. I very much liked my stay here.
