“Paid way to much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Paid over 120+ a night but in my opinion it was worth about 65 a night. It was a special weekend. The staff was very nice older gentleman checked me in and out. The room was outdated but I did see other hotels in this particular area for over 300. I do travel to Monterey often. The hotel was older and small but close to downtown Monterey.

Room Tip: I had a ground floor room and there was lots of noise from upstairs. I think second floor would be b...

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

We found this Inn on Priceline and the pictures appeared really cute. When we got there, there was no cute floral comforters and the rooms are a bit outdated. The bathroom was filthy, the baseboards had gunk everywhere. The furniture was circa 1970. The people above us were partying all night. Overall, it was ok. It was close to everything but I will not stay there again for the price.
