“Decent stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

It is a standard “no frills” motel and I have to say that although some issues came up during our stay, the Management responded to the particular issues promptly and professionally (main reason for my above average rating). I was surprised that the Manager even called me up personally to make things right. This Days Inn is named Fisherman’s Wharf so I hoped it would have been closer to the actual Fisherman’s Wharf, possibly within walking distance, but it’s close enough to drive about 5 minutes or so. The included breakfast was mainly bread items, and some juice, nothing exciting but good enough. The dining room could only accommodate about two or three families at a time so we mainly took out to eat in our room which was convenient.

The bed and amenities is nothing special but nice to get a couple movie channels. We ended up here because many other places sold out for the weekend, but it wasn’t bad. The price is reasonable especially when compared to nearby hotels and several other inns.

Room Tip: if you take a room near the dining room (for the free breakfast), expect to be woken up in the morni...

This is a very well kept, clean & well maintained older motel in the heart of Monterey, with easy access to Hwy 101, into town, to the shopping centers, with more than ample restaurants close-by having wide range of prices. It has no pool or hot tub, but given age in Monterey, we are impressed with the care given to maintain establishment. Food was also excellent choices for free breakfast. There was some noise when water first went on in the adjacent rooms but subsided once running. Otherwise, quiet and clean. This was our second trip to this motel, having stayed there last year without reservations and hitting upon a good place.

We opted for the deluxe suite, with a fireplace and jacuzzi bathtub, and it was definitely worth the additional cost. The room was big and very comfortable. Everything worked. The regular rooms did seem quite small by comparison, but no smaller than average motel rooms. Would definitely stay there again if the hot tub suite was available!

The hotel is about 25 minutes brisk walk to the Fishermans wharf...hence a little misleading when you just read the name. On the other hand it's opposite a huge mall and had lots of food choices. The room was fairly large, clean but ordinary. The worst part about it was that you heard the LOUD noises when your neighbors used their showers! In fact it felt like they were in your shower!
Breakfast was average as expected! Parking outside the room was free and breakfast included in the price.

We did our reservation on Priceline per USD 69,00 and everything was perfect!
No other taxes. No red tape.
The room was clean and cozy. There was parking for free and breakfast included. It was a good and safety location.
