Last minute booking, needed a room for that night only as we were just traveling through. We booked a king room and got 2 double beds instead. The toilet wasn't flushing properly and making noises. The alarm was set to go off at 4:15am, that was fun. The staff had no idea what was going on and kept blaming us... More

This is a very nice holiday inn. The staff are friendly. Prices are reasonable considering it's only a few miles from Monterey which has exorbitant prices. The drive to Monterey is scenic. Hollie at the breakfast bar topped this trip. We thought it was Sunday which in fact it was Monday and Labor Day so the breakfast bar was closed... More

6 of us stayed here for 10 days. The staff is wonderful. They have a large selection for breakfast and the breakfast room is nice. The rooms are basic and large, but extremely dark, and they don't have great storage if you're there more than a few days. The bathroom is a good size. Good basic hotel near route 1... More

We needed a last minute hotel and I called and Brent was fantastic in making sure we got a booking. The place is clean, neat and easy to get in and out of. Best of all free parking which is not that common in the area.

This hotel was extremely comfortable and very clean. The manager, Britt, assisted me with a medical problem my wife was having. Ana help me with a problem at check-in where I had entered the wrong departure date online and would have been charged over $7000. Staff very friendly and very gracious :-)

Let me say right off the bat that the staff was pleasant and efficient and that the room was clean upon arrival. Housekeeping did a great job during our stay. My biggest complaint is the condition of the hotel. When we drove up, the metal fence along the parking lot was so severely rusted that it had rusted completely away... More

We stayed here for 1 night for our trip to Monterey before hitting Big Sur. Instead of staying in the heart of Monterey because of the higher rates, this hotel offered everything we needed. The location is 20 minutes north of Monterey. It's in a quiet strip mall, with Walmart close by. The lobby was well lit and comfortable with... More

Stayed here for just one quick night in June so my high school senior and I could tour Cal State Univ, Monterey Bay. The location was just off the freeway, about a mile from the beach, and no more than a ten minute drive to the school. Check-in was quick & simple, and the front desk was more than happy... More
