5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Whenever we stay in Monterey I always insist on staying downtown or on Cannery Row, so we can walk right out into all the action. This time there weren't enough rooms at any one place for our extended family so we ended up at the La Quinta. We were all so glad we did!

The rooms were all large, roomy and immaculate. The beds and pillows were super comfy. The bathroom is also large with an immense vanity with plenty of room for everyone's stuff. The shower curtain is the kind that curves out so it doesn't cling to you.

The breakfast is basic, scrambled eggs, cereals, yogurt, breads. Saves a pile of money to not eat out.

The location is also very good. It's 2 miles to downtown, but the bike/walking path runs right outside the hotel. We walked down one morning - it's the perfect distance for a bike ride to the wharf or Cannery Row.

The rate was less than half what we've paid for accomodations not as nice right on Cannery Row. We would definitely stay here next time we go to Monterey.

La Quinta Monterey provided us with an affordable, extremely clean room with a friendly staff. We stopped here for one night on our way to San Francisco and this was our first time staying at a La Quinta. We would definitely stay here again.

Convenient, super clean, and awesome staff. Other more expensive hotels are available on the Monterey Peninsula, but you will not find one conveniently located near NPS, downtown Monterey, and tons of other attractions. Rooms are spotless. And the front desk staff couldn't be friendly. Why stay anywhere else?

This was one of two very nice trips we have had, the first was at La Quinta in San Francisco. Nice staff, clean and quiet rooms. We discovered La Quinta because we needed to take our little dog with us and they are the only motel who is really pet friendly . Most of all, it's just a great place to stay!!

Thank you so much for your very nice review! We're so glad that you liked the hotel, and the La Quinta chain in general.

I do feel the need to point out, however, that while the La Quinta chain is, in general, pet-friendly, our specific location is not. Unfortunately we just do not have the proper accommodations for pets, as the neighboring lake, beach, and city parks prohibit dogs and we do not have any alternative areas to offer for their recreation. So sorry for the misunderstanding!

We do, of course, hope that you'll be back to stay with us again next time you're traveling to Monterey without your pets. Thanks again for a really nice review.

We had spent a long day in Monterey when we checked in, and the person at the desk recommended a restaurant that delivered that had great food and was reasonable. Breakfast the next morning was good. In addition to the traditional fare at most places, they had scrambled eggs and really tasty muffins. When we checked out, the staff person gave us some great recommendations for our trip down highway one. Our room was very clean and roomy.

My wife and I spent a night at this hotel and were very impressed by the extremely helpful staff, clean and large room (...all La Quinta chain hotels appear to have a small lounge area in their rooms). Rooms were also clean and well appointed. A semi-hot Breakfast was also included and quality and quantity were more then acceptable.

The gentlemen at reception recommended the'Monterey Fish House' as were were after some local sea food. This place was outstanding and probably was of the best seafood means we had on our entire US trip (...well worth a visit if staying this hotel.

All up, a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Keep up the good work folks.

Room Tip: We asked for (and received) a quiet room on the 3rd floor.

We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the La Quinta Monterey and your meal at the Fish House, as well! I agree, it's an exceptional restaurant, made even better by the fact that it's not right in the middle of the tourist areas. Very glad that you were able to discover and enjoy that.

Thanks so much for the compliments to the property and staff, we very much appreciate it. We hope that you will be back to stay with us again another time!
