Great price...no better for the area. You can't walk down town but you do save a bit...factor in parking with that if you are hoping to go carmel. Clean rooms. Comfy beds. No complaints. Recommend a stay to others.

We were swiftly checked into our room arriving around Noon. The room was pleasantly modern and well appointed. We got a taxi down to pier and walked back later on. While the hotel is a little walk it isn't to far and plenty of restaurants etc.

This motel (room 8) was clean, recently renovated but room was small for 3 large suitcases, backpacks and other items. Plug ins were not abundant or well placed but the place is older so wouldn't expect it anyway. Walk in shower only without tub or seat. No breakfast, but coffee available all day. Would stay here again.

we stayed here for 1 night as part of our road trip, the room was clean, nothing special, good value, it does what it says on the tin, good location for quick drive down into Monterey bay or up the road to carmel, good fro the budget traveller

This was a one night stop for us and it exceeded my expectations. Modernly renovated, clean, comfortable and very convenient access. And very reasonably priced! Only downside was the staff was not very friendly and, oddly enough, we couldn't get a drain plug for the bathtub because apparently the City of Monterey doesn't allow that due to water conservation bylaws....

First great thing is no carpeting. Room is furnished with hardwood and tile flooring. So clean. Huge flat screen. Over all wonderful room. All rooms are downstairs for the whole hotel. Only drawback is there could have been two more pillows on the bed.

This place is great. I loved the location, the ambiance, everything. Just beware of the beds. I have read many reviews saying the beds are hard, then some saying that they are not that bad. Yes, yes, they are that bad. I have slept on tile floors that have more give than those beds. I woke up stiff, sore and... More
