“Regretted not splurging”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Probably worst hotel experience I've had in recent history. I've stayed in hostels that were better. Bathroom door was locked from the inside when we checked in - we had to jimmy the lock with the Do Not Disturb sign. Heavy stains on chairs and bed sheets. Room smelled heavily of cleaning fluid - but at least that means they cleaned the room? Would not recommend this place to anybody.

Hard to find a motel in Monterey that will accept pets. Motel 6 does. Very plain room with imitation wood floor. Chairs at table are falling apart. Toilet plugged up in middle of night for no reason. Found plunger in utility closet next door and fixed it myself. Very tight parking.
