My boyfriend and I were doing a road trip staying in a different hotels each day and this hotel was definitely the best value one. Wifi is included, breakfast as well and they even have waffles! The staff was very friendly at reception and they suggested us a lot of places to go to in Monterey. I definitely recommend it... More

My wife and I decided to stay here for a wedding. Because of the time of year, the prices for hotels in the local Monterey area get really expensive. For 80 after tax this hotel seemed like a steal. But there was a catch. No air conditioning in any of the rooms. I also noticed that the heater is producing... More

Spent 2 nights on our way back to San Francisco. Booked this online beforehand due to it being a long weekend. We hadn't stayed at this property chain before and everything was pretty expensive due to the long weekend, so we thought we would give it a go. Definitely not the best we have stayed in but not the worst... More

Nothing fancy but it did the job. Clean, helpful staff, and a free breakfast. A limited breakfast but it was free! The rooms are nice and staff help when they can. There's a pool and jacuzzi so that was nice! Also, there's a patio in every room. A little too pricey for what we got but overall a positive stay.

Not sure where the great reviews are coming from and what we missed. Although the location is great, this hotel is tired and run down. Rooms are small with out dated furnishings. The rug was damp all the time. No air conditioning requires opening the door to the balcony for fresh air. Bathroom light switch is 3 feet from door... More

Nice motel not far from Monterey Wharf and Cannery Row (you'll need a car though). Clean. Big room with TV, microwave, coffee machine and fridge. Free WiFi with strong signal. Nice pool with hottub in the yard. Simple but good breakfast with waffles maker. Great Value.
