“Hard beds”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2008

Reasonable for a cheaper place but the beds were really uncomfortable. Hard and unsteady and meant we couldn't get a good night's sleep...which is what you're really looking for in this sort of place. By comparison, the Comfort Inn down the road had wonderfully comfy beds and cost the same.

We needed two nights in Monterey and booked at the Super 8. Good location by a shopping centre, small but nice pool area, and clean rooms with wireless internett and cable-tv.

Great value.

This Super 8 was better than expected. The bed was firm, the free breakfast included cereal and milk, and English muffins. It was also quieter than other motels in this row (e.g., Best Western Park Crest Inn). But the walk-in rate we were quoted ($65 + tax = $72) with a AAA card was over 10% higher than the online booking rate. Granted, that's a typical thing at motels. But we had just checked the website earlier that day (couldn't book due to website problems) and when we walked in, we requested the online rate. The front desk staff assured us that $72 was the same as booking online. Of course, when we checked in and then re-checked the website, it wasn't. The motel was half empty, so I don't see why he couldn't have offered us the slightly lower rate. Next time, we'll try one of the slightly more well-equipped motels in this row that offers more amenities, like a heated pool (the Super 8 pool is unheated).

Walked in and got a good price. We weren't expecting much but it was actually a really good motel. Free internet access, massive clean rooms, helpful staff. One of the best finds of our trip.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2007

We checked in at this motel at 7 pm on Sunday. The owner did not share the common customer courtesy. He was rude. If our credit card had not already been charged, we would not stay in this motel that night because there are over a dozen motels close by and this is a non-holiday and non-seasonable weekend. The room has a reasonable size but it was filthy with some smell of urine. We called the front desk to request a room change but the owner refused to do so. After we warned him that we would complain directly to the Super 8, the owner finally gave us another room. The breakfast was bad and the dinning area has only two tables with four chairs all together. Like us, many other guests had no choice but to skip the breakfast though it is free. Overall, staying in this motel is a terrible experience. We definitely will never stay in this motel again!!

We come to Monterey about every 3 months and have tried many different motels in the city. Super 8 was indeed above average for the below $90 price. There was ample parking, the room was clean and smelled fresh. Lots of closet space, floor length mirrors, ref and microwave, and a spacious enough bathroom. Only con was a lack of iron/ironing board. We'll be staying here again.
