4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

The staff at this hotel was excellent. Eric was really good about places to go and see. He knew his way around the city which a lot of hotel staff don't always know. The other staff was just as friendly as him. I wish all the staff at hotels were just like this one.

The middle aged guy at the front desk was a tad grumpy and offensive "people who make reservations on Expedia are idiots". Breakfast included stale muffins along with typical continental menu. Yes, room was clean and location perfect. There is underground parking, which may prove to be a challenge with a full size truck. There were only 8 on grade compact stalls. Bed sheets were clean but felt as though they have passed their usefulness they were starting to pill.

Room Tip: Try a different motel?

Thank you for the positive comments about room cleanliness and the location being perfect.
I apologize for any unprofessional comment. That would be an unusual situation for us.
We will make sure all of our front desk staff is aware of this and positively responds
to it. We cut our muffins fresh everyday. Parking wise we have 13 spaces on the 1st floor and 27 below where there is a 6’4” clearance. We do inject new new linen up to 3 or 4 times
a year. Please feel welcome to visit us again.

We stayed at the Monterey Downtown Travelodge last weekend and enjoyed it very much. Our room had recently been remodeled and was clean and roomy. We had a new flat screen T.V.
The location is right in the center of town and a short walk to Alvarado street.
Oh yea, free breakfast is nice too.

Room Tip: Upper floors have a nice view

Thank you for your complimentary review. Like you, many of our guests enjoy walking
downtown to Fisherman's Wharf and the Ocean Front Rec Trail just 12 minutes away.
Glad you enjoyed one of our newest refurbished rooms with new bathrooms. These are quickly becoming popular with our repeat customers. For your added pleasure we kicked off this morning with our newest addition to the continental breakfast....waffles! Come again soon.

We stayed here for one night and i have no complaints. The hotel isn't really anything to look at but it is clean, offers a complementary breakfast and has free parking. The location is very good, close to restaurants and a short walk from the shops and Fisherman's Wharf. Monterey is a lovely town, don't forget to check out Cannery Row too, you can use the free shuttle service from Fisherman's Wharf. The hotel is close to a rather busy road and petrol station but I didn't experience any major issues with noise.

The hotel does charge $1.50 for use of the safe, which is a slightly odd and unnecessary charge in my opinion. Would stay again if I was ever in town.

Thank you for a very positive review. Our goal everyday is Everything's Clean, Everything Works.
Our newest totally updated rooms on the third floor include an all new bathroom, beautiful new art work with framed photos of the coast and more. Ask for it on your next stay. The free shuttle
to the Aquarium and Cannery Row Runs now through Labor Day and you just walk a few blocks
to catch it! By June 14 we will add waffles to our continental breakfast.

On a short road trip from San Francisco this was the first hotel we saw in Monterey and as it was getting latish took the chance, not the sort of place we had immagined staying at. Really good room, large and airy, very comfortable queen size twin beds(king size in the UK!), good en suite shower room,fluffy towels and the usual lotions and shampoos, coffee maker in the room(real coffee,not instant!) and large flat screen TV. Spotlessly clean and well cleaned for our second day. To top it off a free continental(they called it)breakfast. And the price? We paid $95 per night which with taxes came to $105.50.Oh... and they have free parking and even a plunge pool.

We thank you for taking the time and mentioning our large and airy rooms that you found spotlessly
clean with free parking and a pool. We invite you to come again on your next overseas visit.
Please ask about our newest renovated rooms.
