This place is dirty, no filthy, and the entire property is littered with garbage and cigarette butts. I was there when The Monterey County Health Dept.had red tagged the pool, locked it with their pad lock and had put a big warning sign on the entrance to the pool and jaccuzzi. The carpets are so dirty that your white socks... More

Wow.... What a terrible place to stay. The location was well centered for the weeks events. However, it was shabby and nasty. I shortened my stay by one day. I hope they spend at least some of the 1322.00 I spent for the four nights, on some improvements....

Room was relatively clean but had wires from a disconnected smoke alarm on the ceiling although a replacement was on the wall. Chair in room was stained and dirty. The furniture was old and chipped. Shower was stained. Had to pay 25 cents in ice machine. Pool was... More

I guess "false" advertising is what describes it best. I had made the reservation through Expedia. They have a pool but since not much was working and personnel seemed to be quite no where I didn't go. I had also asked for high speed internet...but...that too wasn't really working. Couldn't get any work done as I had little to no... More

Did not realize when we booked this hotel that it was rated #55 out of 55. The shear curtains were in shreds. When we first arrived the fridge was not working so the maintenance man/front desk clerk/I do everything guy went under the cabinet and tried to plug another cord into the already overloaded extension cord. That lasted maybe 5... More

I stayed here a year ago for about $50/night. This year, on the same weekend, they want $340/night. I can stay in a Hilton for $340/night. This is a beatup, not renovated in 20 years joint with a $70 Travelodge next door and the nearest restaurant six blocks away. Frankly, last year's rate was a bit much; this year is... More
