“Value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Helpful staff, basic but adequate breakfast. Room was okay, clean & comfortable. Location was good, easy to get on and off the freeway but only a 20 minute walk down to Fishermans Wharf and then a further 15 minutes onto Cannery Row.

I suppose you get what you pay for and Monterey is an expensive place to stay. Good parking, free Wifi, poor breakfast, not filthy but could be cleaner, no air con. Quite a walk to Cannery Row but a few places to eat nearby. Ok for a short stopover. At least Earl and Randy had a pool! Otherwise similar to their room on the show.

Actually I have nothing to say about this place: it is neutral. Functional but no special amenities. Breakfast is modest: muffins, wieners, toast bread, jam, coffee, juice. No pool or yard. Though we had a French balcony but the view was a backyard.

Monterey on a weekend in August is prime time = very expensive! This hotel is reasonably priced, clean and well positioned, but it lacks the extras (no pool, only small breakfast choice). Anyhow, for our purpose to explore the area and only sleep here at night, it is good.

Bit pricey for a basic room without AC but Monterey isn't known for being cheap. This place is clean and convenient - about 15 minutes walk from Fisherman's Wharf. Had a fridge, decent TV, microwave and the price ($179) included a basic continental breakfast which you picked up and had in your room.

We were looking for a clean, safe reasonably priced hotel for us and our pup for a couple of nights. The El Adobe Inn in is about a mile away from the wharf and Del Monte Plaza shopping mall. The hotel itself is very simple, no frills but clean and comfortable. Here are some things I thought were worth mentioning.

Pet friendly rooms are on the bottom floor.
The bottom floor rooms face the parking lot. Bring earplugs.
They are pet friendly in the fact that they accept pets but don't extras like bowls or beds.
The rooms don't have air conditioning and can get stuffy quickly. If you open the windows it helps a little but you lose privacy and people walking by can be noisy. They do provide a stand up fan in the room.
Bring your own shampoo, conditioner and soap. Theirs was just ok.
The towels are very small and they only had two. Most girls I know use two towels so be sure and ask for an extra if needed.
The breakfast is very basic. Muffins cut into quarters, svengard pastries, bananas and coffee.
Hotel is kind of tucked away and felt safe and secure.
Easy access to hwy 1
Bed was comfortable.
Coffee maker, fridge, microwave provided.
No bathroom fan but it does have a window that opens.
Free wi-fi provided. Be sure and get the password at check in.

I would stay there again but would ask for a room away from the courtyard and ice machine. The location was convenient and I thought the price was good considering the area and that we had our dog.
