This motel is in a good location, being just a couple miles from the aquarium, the main reason for our visit to Monterey. The woman helping us at the front desk was friendly and efficient. It's easy to tell that this is an older motel that has been updated; fresh paint, a little wallpaper trim, newer bathroom countertop and fixtures,... More

Nice place, price was great ($73 before taxes). Nothing extravagant but bedding seemed new-ish and good quality sheets. Pillows were soft, albeit small, but that's just how I like them. They had 2 extra pillows and a blanket in the closet so you don't have to ask for them. Suited me well as I despise those hard "two story" foam... More

The people that gave this place terrible reviews were probably born with a silver spoon in their mouth. During a very busy time period, I found this place the cheapest, so I didn't expect a lot, but I was pleasantly surprised especially after some of the bad reviews.

I booked 2 nights at this hotel. At 3 am I woke up to feed my baby and saw 3 bugs crawling across the pillow and sheets. I killed the bugs and saved one in a napkin to show hotel staff. The staff has been evasive and dishonest and has refused to issue a refund even though I did not... More

We have responded to the review of bed bugs for the fraud review. We didn't hear back from you. We have also asked to verify that the hotel can provide the pest inspection bill and the same day photography after the guest check out. More

Stayed 3 nights and it was really bad. Checked in Wednesday, 11/11 and clerk was totally rude. Walls are like paper and you can hear people throughout the entire complex. This is a "sleep and leave" motel (not a hotel) because you wouldn't want to spend one extra second here if you don't have to. Clarion must really need franchise... More

I stayed at this hotel for just a night but the experience have haunted me for days. The staff is very very rude. All they think about is money. They don't treat customers well.

Room was clean, quiet with frig and microwave, no A/C needed due to normal cool summer temperatures. Front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. Much better than average hotel WiFi with excellent signal strength, 9.72 Mbps download and 8.36 Mbps upload speeds. Continental breakfast included cook-them-yourself waffles; red apples; couple cereals; oatmeal; bagels; sliced bread; orange juice; milk; coffee; etc.... More

This is a health hazard. It has a hidden cell tower disguised as a chimney. Rooms are average for a budget hotel, location is good for Asilomar and the Butterfly sanctuary. Children and pregnant woman do not stay here due to radiation risk from hidden cell tower.
