2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2005

I decided to stay here while friends were in town - decent location (close to the one mall area in Monterey) and that's the only good thing about this place. We stayed in a room with a jacuzzi - as soon as the jets were turned on chunks of mildew started coming out of the jets. When I asked the front desk how often the jacuzzis were cleaned they assured me that they were cleaned everyday but from the amount of crap that was left in the bottom of the jacuzzi after the water drained I would have to guess that it hadn't been cleaned in over a year. The room was fairly dark and the bathroom looked like it was in the middle of being redone. There are definatly better places to stay in Monterey.

Wow I'm surprised by the other comments I read on this site. The Fact is this is probably one of the best Days Inn's I have ever stayed at. The entire exterior is painted with murals and landscapes that are absolutely amazing. The Room we stayed in had a Jacuzzi and a Fireplace and was perfect. From the fireplace mantle to the refrigerator, microwave, hairdryer, big TV with VCR, and location to the Wharf and Aquarium. I will always stay at this hotel when I am in Monterey.

We stayed here one night on our way from LA to SF. They call this location Fisherman's Wharf/Aquarium, but not sure why. It is about 5 miles away from those locations. You must have a car to get around the area. The rooms were very small. The walls were paper thin. I could hear a women's phone conversation in the room next door. There is no A/C unit to use the fan to block out any outside noise. Because it is a motor inn the cars are parked right outside the rooms. You could hear people coming and going all night. Breakfast was no more than donuts and coffee.
Monterey was nice. We happened upon the weekly farmers market (Tuesdays on Alvardo street) and it was wonderful.

The room was relatively spacious but dark and extremely dirty. Dust was piled in the corners and on the ceiling fan. Carpet was old and soiled - I wouldn't dare walk barefoot. Noticed multiple silverfish crawling around inside the ceiling light fixture. Marble clad shower couldn't distract from the mold growing around the window in the bathroom (no ventiltation, though the window did open). Holes in walls at electrical outlets and plumbing. Missing smoke alarm. Stained 'fitted' sheets on the beds were both about 2' short, exposed the filthy mattress pad underneath. Staff at front desk was not helpful upon complaints - did not seem to understand English well enough. The regular rate of $309 posted in the room must be a joke...not even worth $39...
