“My first Travelodge - and my last”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Hotel rates are very high in tourist attractive Monterey, CA, and that extends to Salinas, half an hour into the country.
We paid a (relative) high amount for a Travelodge room. And we got a small dark room, "almost clean", with a sink that was not working properly. The internet was OK, though. Breakfast was very minimal, Coffee, toast, cereals, fruit, waffles. Not even a bagel with cream cheese.
I wouldn't even think it was a good value, If I had paid half the price.
So if this is a standard Travelodge hotel, I will never use this brand again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We stayed during the Laguna Seca MotoGP race weekend -- I understand that all the hotels/motels jack up their rates during this weekend but I did expect more. The bed and bathroom were clean but the whole room smelled of bleach. And I was disappointed to find that our room was right next to a bar, so the noise continued well into the night. The breakfast was decent -- I was glad to see make-your-own-waffles, orange juice and local pastries. If the rate was $100 I wouldn't be complaining but we paid $250.

My wife and I were tourists from Australia. We stayed at the Travelodge six nights and enjoyed it. We used the motel as a base to visit Steinbeck Centre and Steinbeck House in Salinas.
We used the public bus service to travel to Monterey for $5 return (and on to Big Sur for a bit more) and got to see the surrounding lettuce fields and seaside suburbs
The staff were friendly & helpful.
A sensible breakfast was included in the very reasonable tariff
They even had a waffle-machine to make your own 'brekky' waffle
Wonderful value

***Accommodation in Monterey is more expensive
