The family room worked well for our family of four. It provided the kids with their own space. The hotel is older but very well cared for and in great shape. The pool area is very nice. The location is very convenient. The staff was very helpful.

Excellent hotel for the price. Family room which was very comfortable for the four of us and cheaper than booking two separate rooms. Pool was a bonus. Breakfast in the lodge's restaurant was great with a slight Mexican take. Excellent service from start to finish. Hotel also forwarded on a forgotten belongings which I was very grateful for.

Had to stop for the night in Monterey due to the fires in Big Sur at the time. Called the Lodge and spoke with a real person at the actual front desk! They were very friendly. I asked for a family suite, but they suggested a bedroom suite instead, and I went for that one. It had a separate bedroom... More

We stayed here for two nights and though it is an older hotel, it is clean and well put together. The shower is kind of small, but the beds are very comfortable. There is both a refrigerator and microwave in the room. There is a front and back door into the hotel room. We stayed on the bottom floor, so... More

This place was a nice stay. Has a nice pool & a restaurant next to it. The rooms were clean & beds were comfortable. Only complaint is there was no air conditioner so room was a little stuffy. It is not far from wharf but far enough away that it isn't to busy.

While the rooms are non smoking the balconies are not. We are traveling with small children so the smoking next door made it impossible for us to use the beautiful balcony. The upstairs is not very well insulated and anytime someone walks upstairs we would wake up. I think there are better places to stay in Monterey.

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

We would return And try room with fireplace next time. Lived Garrapata Patk coastal and rocky ridge trails. Also aquarium was fantastic and worth it. Next time we will kayak... 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
