The room itself was not bad, but the whole place needs a facelift and better management. The back of our shower curtain had some mold on it, and the furniture and fixtures in general look old an worn. The breakfast room looks like a converted storage room, too small for the number of guests and uninviting. We stayed there to... More

If you want to read their other reviews, they changed their names from Quality Inn Monterey Beach Dunes. You need to really like the beach to stay here. The hotel is very run down. The breakfast room is a health hazard with food on the floor and peeled eggs in a bowl with nothing to pick them up with so... More

Our room was clean and modern, and everything worked to our satisfaction. I don't think this place deserves some of the flaming bad reviews it got here, but it's nothing special. Easy walk to Marina Beach was plus. Top floor rooms facing the ocean have views and are quietest, but keep in mind there is no elevator. Rooms towards the... More

The room was not clean, the garden was a mess, and the breakfast room was.............sorry have no words. I would rather sleep in a tent. Just booked a motel for this... More

Maria at the front desk was very nice. The breakfast every morning is pretty decent, and hot items too, like eggs and biscuits and gravy. The rooms are generic, nothing special but if you need a place to crash and shower it's ok. The downside is you can hear everything outside, doors slamming, people walking by, etc. The beach is...

This hotel was in a small town just outside Monterey. It was handy for an overnight stop as very close to Highway 1. But it wasn't very nice. Reception had a bad smell, as did one of our 3 rooms. It was a damp and dirty smell. I told the lady on reception and she said we could move rooms,... More

Needs major renovation. PERIOD Cramped room and aged furniture, yes Monterey hotel prices are very high, but you'll do much better to spend some more money money at a place like Motel 6. Beach access is great, but keep in mind that Monterey temperatures don't lend to a lot of sun bathing and swimming. Water and sand is nonetheless beautiful.

When we arrived at hotel we were given a room on the 2nd floor. We asked for 1st floor. Furniture,carpet and TV were old. The second day we were so upset our room smelled of dead rats. We returned to the front desk and they said hotel was full and nothing they could do. On the third day the smell... More

This is without a doubt the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I believe the rooms might have recently been painted so I will excuse that odor. However, the odor that came from the heat/AC is overpowering. The beds were old and hard with a sag in the middle. One of the electrical outlets did not have a plate... More
