“Clean, everything you need”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Despite it's older appearance on the outside, the rooms are nicely done and are clean. I looked at most hotels in the area and this proved to have the best value. I would stay here again if I made it back to Monterey. It was in a very central location which made it easy to get to downtown Monterey and even 17-mile drive within a few minutes. 5-star accommodations and service? Absolutely not. All the basic essentials you need? Absolutely. You can't beat the value you'll get here.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

This was the best Super 8 we have ever visited. Well maintained inside and out. Beautiful flowers! Very affordable for the area. Easy access to Hwy 1 for touring the town and surrounding area. Large high quality outdoor shopping mall across the street with restaurants, theatres, and Whole Foods Market. Convenient laundromat around the corner. Breakfast area was only a build-in bar in the lobby and overcrowded, but balanced out by the quality of accomodations and helpfulness of hotel staff. This will be our top choice for future visits to Monterey.

Room Tip: Top floor center rooms are quietest.

We checked in at about 10 pm. We had reservations and the desk clerk was waiting on us to arrive. He gave us maps of the area and made some suggestions about the area and then we went to our room. The next morninig at the continental breakfast we talked with the same desk clerk again. He made some good suggestions for how we should spend our day and again gave us more maps to find our way. The room was decent, the pillows were fine.. the breakfast was ok.. I would definitely go back to this hotel if i were ever in the area again. iIt was clean and comfortable and the service was very good.

We regularly travel to northern California and need a place to sleep along the way. We have stayed at this Super 8 twice and will surely come back to stay again.

The woman at the front desk is nice and helpful. She was able to get us a deal on a room without us even having to ask.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are well sized, the shower has good water pressure, and shampoo, conditioner, and soap are provided.

Beds and pillows are comfortable. The heater/air conditioner is easy to use and keeps the room cozy or cool, depending on your preferences. Mini fridge and microwave in the room are useful.

The hotel is right across the street from a shopping center.

The only drawback is the parking lot which, if you arrive to your room at night, may be full. We squeezed into a spot for a compact car last time (I have a RAV4). However, this shouldn't stop you from staying.

Excellent accommodations for the money. We will be back!

I travelled with my son. Tried to upgrade our room from one king to 2 beds,with one of your coupons I saw on line. The manager (mike) refused saying that my room had to be booked through you. I explained that trip advisor is not a booking agent and it was was booked through an agent (Hotels.com) referred by you.He then said that there was no availability, because there was a ' marathon ' happening. I later checked on line and saw that there were rooms available also spoke to people in the city who said "there was no marathon race organised. We had planned to stay another night and booked a room with 2 beds with him which he said will be available the next day. However when we found out he had lied about the upgrade & availability, we checked out after i night & drove onto Carmel.

I am sorry but We can not make changes to 3rd party reservation. We also advice on TripAdvisor to guest make reservation at www.super8.com or hotel directly. If you come on Big Sur Marathon its busy for us. Please look at the add on TripAdvisor.com. Again I am sorry.

I stay in Monterey M-F for work. My co-worker also stayed here, and I assumed his reservation. The Super 8 is a very good value for the rate that Mike (the manager) is able to provide. You will not find this value anywhere else along Munras!

Mike and his staff are extremely helpful and accomodating.

The wi-fi network is very reliable and the rooms are spacious. Refrigerators and microwaves appear to be standard in every room. The shopping center across the street is convenient with restaurants and other retail stores. Easy access to the freeway, Carmel or Sand City are less than 10 minutes away.

I would definitely recommend this Super 8 for the business traveler and tourists alike.

Room Tip: No elevator, so request room on first floor if this will be an issue...
