“Cheap.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

We were driving from San Francisco to LA and were just looking for cheap clean accommodation and this property fitted the bill. For a small fee we had a clean room with good bed and continental breakfast for 2. We didn't want to live in the room just somewhere to sleep and this was good enough for that. We walked to the Fisherman's wharf area for dinner and down to the corner of the block for coffee, it wasn't the Fairmont but it was all we needed. The operator gave us great information for our travels the next day and I thank him for that.

Room Tip: Just arrive and take a chance.

According to the Days Inn website, the Jacuzzi Fireplace Queen Suite is supposed to have: "2 Queen beds with 1 Queen sofa bed, separate Living room and Bedroom, 25" television with remote, tea/coffee maker, telephone, air conditioning, hairdryer, alarm clock radio, iron & board, free high-speed internet, free local calls, refrigerator & cable TV".

I had reserved a queen suite online before our trip and was excited to have a separate bedroom, so that our toddler could go to bed before us without problem. Well, when we got to our room, we were disappointed to find that the suite was merely a room with a fireplace (by the front door) and a separate room that was only big enough to fit the jacuzzi and a sink. There was NO separate bedroom. When I approached the front desk about it, he said that they didn't have any rooms that offered a separate bedroom from the living room. Had I known, I would have just booked a normal room. Unless you really want to have a large bathtub, save your money, and go for a normal double queen bed room. The location of the fireplace by the door made it very unappealing. Otherwise, the hotel was fine. I just don't appreciate the false advertising.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 115.

just stayed here for a spur of the moment weekend getaway. I was pleasantly surprised. the room did need some updating old tv., bed could have been better.but it did have a refrigerator and microwave,( not sure if all rooms did).smelled and looked fairly clean.location was very good. walking distance to down town. and if you want to stretch your legs a little more to fishermans wharf. maybe 2 miles my guess. a lot of restuarants and higher end hotels very close by. which i think says that its in a nice area. staff was nice and very welcoming. all in all a nice hotel

This was the first stop on our coach tour and initial impressions were of a motel style appearance with a double row of rooms. Found it to be a bit basic and that the towels we had didnt appear to be the freshiest. Pleasantly surprised to have a complimentary breakfast included. Well able to walk to Fishersman Wharf from here and to explore that attraction.

We stayed 8 nights at this motel. The price was great, the service was great and the rooms were very nice. The location is great too - just minutes (about 5 by car) away from all the tourist attractions. We plan to stay here again when we come to Monterrey.

We planned a last minute trip with friends to Monterey for New Years and I picked an upgraded oceanview room here and my friends picked another place a short block away...So glad we stayed here! Nice, very large room, great view, and good prices....The location is walking distance to downtown shops, restaurants, events at the plaza and the wharf...Looking forward to staying here next visit! By the way, our room was twice the size, nicer, had a cceanview and cheaper than our friends room... Yea!!!

We stayed two nights and we werevery happy with spacious and clean rooms, very friendly front desk, great breakfast and quiet and close to town location. The facilities are very well maintained and a well above standard condition. This was the best place we stayed in two weeks of California. I would recommend it to all my friends.
