The hotel strip outside Monterey is a bit sketchy. Clean sheets, towels, and floors. Bathrooms small but sufficient. Conveniently located beside CVS. Double rm had adjoining door. Street light got thru the curtains. Very helpful, patient front desk individuals.

This is the affordable motel for you stay in Monterey area. Convenient location to the 17 mile drive and not to far travel through Silicon valley from San Francisco. This place is normally booked during summer, all parking spaces are fully occupied at night. No free wifi but available for purchase.

I booked this motel because I wanted to spend less on a room and more on things we wanted to do while in monterey/ carmel. I found this to be the cheapest option . We payed $ 129 for Saturday night which was steep but Sunday night dropped to $69. If you want all the Percs , stay somewhere else... More

The motel was very clean and the staff very friendly. There is a denny right across the street, which is very convenient. We were also very close to Dennis the menice park and that was great for the kids.

I wasn't that impressed. We stayed at several motels on our trip, most costing less than this one and they all included breakfast & wifi which motel 6 does not. Wifi costs $2.99. There is also not coffee, fridge, safe or microwave in the room. You can get coffee at reception in the morning though. The room looks very modern... More

Good basic hotel accommodation. Coffee available in the morning. Across the street from Denny's and the Monterey Cookhouse so meals available close by. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Pool was small but well maintained. Room was clean and had necessary facilities. Wi-fi available for a fee (disappointing - but Denny's was free!).

Well maintain budget rooms and motel. Location is excellent off the pch1 and not far from the 101. Location location location. The resort next to the beach which is walking distance has excellent restaurant. I was surprised how good the sushi was there.

I've stayed here over a seven year period. The hotel only gets better and better. It's just impossible to beat the room rates in an area notoriously priced at the highest levels they can get. Over the years, since their acquisition by one of the largest hotel groups in the world, they have gone from a clientele of drug users... More
