Clean and comfortable rooms, courteous staff, well stocked amenities, excellent customer service. Variety choice of breakfast was filling, and pool was very inviting. The entire Inn was very well maintained.

The rom is near a road, no view at all, a bit noisy. The main problem was the cold, we stay on this hotel on december. It was so cold in the room (55F according to the thermostat), but the heater didn't work (or only for 2minutes) and the window was not isolated at all (a lot of cold air... More

The manager called Expedia helpline and someone from customer service told me that my reservation was cancelled due to credit card issue but they did not informed... More

I stayed at this Inn for 5 nights. Room was big with patio and very clean. They have huge pool, hot tub and laundry facility which is plus. The breakfast is good too. Nice garden area with gazebo. Staff very friendly and polite. I defiantly stay again on weekdays as their price goes higher on weekend.

If you are looking for the "Ritz", this isn't it! LOL! However, if you are searching for a moderately priced hotel to use as a base while exploring the area, you found the mark. Had a king room with a microwave and fridge. The hotel does not have AC, and in the summer that would definitely be a severe drawback.... More

Needed a hotel room at the very last minute and had to pay $250. Now that is not really the fault of this motel (not a hotel). The price was based on supply and demand and it was unfortunate the lowest price at the time I booked. So back to the review, yes price did influence my 1 star review.... More

My wife and I celebrated our sixth year wedding anniversary here and it was a terrific experience. Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted and our room was prepared with a bouquet of red roses, rose petals on the bed and some snacks! The owners went out of their way to be generous to us and it made a huge... More

Really good price for Monterey. It is walking distance to the front and even to the Aquarium (about 1/2 hour down a pedestrian path) so a really good value hotel. The rooms could do with being renovated but generally good value. Pool is nice too.

This place might have been nice when it was built many years ago. It is now old and beat up. Seems like for maintenance they paint over it including painting the tile in the bathroom. Will not ever stay there again.

When I walked in the hotel clerk, Rishma, warmly greeted me. Then she teased me -- telling me that she gave away my room -- when I realized she was teasing me I started laughing. She made my hotel stay very comfortable. The rooms are good, reasonable around $250 with a hot tub + pool and inside are microwave, small... More
