“Over rated in Trip Advisor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

It is cheap but it is not good value when the plumbing and heating roars. On the side of the bed facing the heater/air you are treated to a small hurricane every few minutes. The location is "highway central" but the only place you could walk to would be the Del Monte shopping center. There is no breakfast area other than a narrow counter facing the window.

The description "clean" did not fit our room which had a badly stained chair and stains on the bedspread.

I think many places that score well on TripAdvisor do so only because of the price and this is one. And our room request was ignored by the clerk. In Carmel better to spend a bit more.

If you have ever been in a Super 8, you know what type of hotel they are, so to our surprise this one location was a bit different in regards the size of the bedroom, the double vanity, amount of towels and pillows you get and cleanness of it. Staff very amiable and very good location. Definitely a good option for the price.

Agree with many reviews that this is good value for money, the mall across the road is convenient for a meal or shopping if required. The motel location is practical for a road trip, early rise and on the road.

Clean and comfortable, but could use some updating and general maintenance. Great location, right across street from shopping/restaurants and close to highway and downtown. Safe and clean area. Breakfast was nothing to write home about, but price is right (free!).

We choose this Super 8 base on Tripadvisor review and we make best choice. We found the staff great on help with restaurant and giving direction . Also our room very clean and large king bed . The breakfast is free and we love those Super 8 cinnamon bun , yogurt, waffle , two different cereal , orange juice ,cranberry juice, apple juice, fruit. We can not complain for anything it was best Super 8 we had on our trip.

We found this motel to be clean and comfortable. We didn't expect anything more than basic for the price . The chap greeted us in a very friendly manner and we were pleased with the room and location.
