The hotel was superb for a one night stay in a queen size room. It had all the essentials and the complimentary bottles of water was a lovely gesture. The finishing details in the room was fantastic including the bow wrapped shower curtain. The bed was super comfortable and the bedding luxurious. For a mid week night the price was... More

We booked two nights here during our two week holiday. The rooms were more motel style, in that you checked in with reception and then drove round to your accommodation, which was clean and tidy, and had everything we needed for our two night stay. The location of the lodge was very handy for the main Fisherman's Wharf area, with... More

I was beginning to think that I couldn't find an affordable, well-reviewed motel anywhere close to the ocean or downtown in Monterey when I found this motel, and it more than lived up to our expectations. Across the street from a great park, and a bock away from a great family beach on Monterey Bay, the motel was clean, affordable,... More

Stayed for three nights in June in this very nice lodge. Friendly staff with an early check-in. Comfortable bed with a clean room. Having a microwave, coffee, free bottled water, a fan, and refrigerator are nice extras. An on site cafe had very good breakfast. Would like to see the cantina have extended hours. The heated pool was wonderful. Grounds... More

Stayed here for 6 nights with my husband and two sons. Good value for the size of accommodation. Good location in a quiet part of Monterey. Easy to walk to all the bar and restaurants. Right across the road from the ocean. Nice pool, though on the small side but when we used it there was no one else there.... More

Rooms are comfortable and clean with helpful staff. It is 10 minutes walk to the Fisherman's wharf with restaurants overlooking the bay. There is a small pool and you can get a breakfast for 8 dollars. we stayed 2 nights before heading down the coast.

We stayed here during our trip to San Fran. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rooms were a bit old but clean. We enjoyed some time by the pool and utilized the restaurant for breakfast. Would definitely recommend. Not luxury but a lovely stay.
