“A Bit Small”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I decided to stay here based on the great rate I was offered through Choice.com. It was a last minute trip so I wasn't looking for luxury. Check-in was fast and fairly friendly.
Parking was tight but the lot was well lit and seemed safe.
I was given room 103 and boy was I shocked when I walked in! This room was very small. It had some great amenities, like a fridge, microwave, table and chairs and of course a t.v. The only problem was it was all crammed into a tiny space! There was literally no room to walk between the t.v. and bed. I did not complain or switch due to the fact I only needed the room to sleep a few hours and shower. It did seem fairly clean with the exception of trash I found on the restroom floor. All in all it was good stay and only seconds to the freeway that takes you to the aquarium and other area attractions.

I will return but will ask for a room with more room. A small continental breakfast was offered but I missed it however, the area looked very clean.

We're familiar Rodeway Inns, and aware they're at the lower end of Choice Hotels, but we never felt so unwelcome. During check in, there was no greetings or pleasentaries, just your keys handed to you. FYI, Ice is 25 cent for your little bucket, extra coffee for room is a $1.00 and no sugar or cream in the room. Internet almost non-existent (not secured and weak.) Our room smells like some kind of cleaner, maybe that's why we noticed unoccupied rooms have the window (and curtain) open. Our sink faucet was trickling when we first arrived, then stop, then trickle and so on. We just wanted coffee for (so called) breasfast and was told it was 7:30-10 AM. Around 8 am, the door still lock. I called, and was told in "about 5-10 minutes more."
There's no closet or cabinet, just a rail with hangers. If these things don't bother you, then you have a decent room and comfortable bed at a good price.

We stayed here for one night on a roadtrip down the coast. We have stayed in Rodeway Inns before and always found them good. This place was a bit of a joke though. The wallpaper in our room was peeling in a massive patch, kind of hanging over the bed. Theres no way the cleaning staff wouldn't have seen that when doing their rounds.
The "breakfast" was an absolute joke! Just disgusting processed food in packets. No breakfast room to eat them at. We took a couple of bites and threw them away and bought breakfast on the way. Foul. Even the juice was disgusting, didn't try the coffee. Glad it was only for one night, but next time we will go elsewhere.

We have stayed at Rodeway Inns before and found them reasonable and certainly not expensive. Usually older and often a little tired, but have offered a comfortable bed at a good price. This motel filled those criteria although possibly towards the lower end of the scale. The lighting was dull in fact one light didn't work, the walls were dirty (cobwebs and dust visible on the rendered surface) and included breakfast was a cookie and brewed coffee, (we brought our own breakfast). having said that, the bed was comfortable, and the room was quiet. It certainly wasn't the hilton, but if you only want a place to sleep, for the price paid it was OK. We didn't notice any prolems with linen as referred to in some other reviews

we confirm opinions about the manager: extremely rude and unprofessional. The room was big but smelly, the location is far from the centre, on a busy and noisy main road. Breakfast is not a breakfast. If you came to Monterey in the night and you decide to stop, don't stay here.

Omg! Terrible! The worst ever experience of my life! Blood on the sheet, burn holes all over the blankets, counter, and microwave. A hole in the ceiling with a shop light hooked up. The room was not even secure enough to leave our belongings in while we were out. White streaks of ...something all over shower curtain. Dirty every where. This room is not even okay if it was free... Terrible management!

I strongly recommend anyone considering to stay here not to. The worst part of this place is the manager. He is extremely rude and unprofessional. He tended towards his own tasks before serving me. The non smoking room I got smelt of smoke and there was cupboard drawers left on the floor for some reason. 2nd room I got the TV did not work. I decided not to try for a 3rd room.
