Make sure you ask for a street view with Ocean right across the street. Perfect to sip on a glass of wine at sunset or your coffee at sunrise. Not a flashy room but the view makes up for the average room.

We stayed here one night on our trip to Monterey. It is an older motel but was well maintained. We had a family room...two beds in two rooms, which was very nice. We opened our windows to listen to the waves crashing all night. I would stay here again!

Great stay. Frank (maybe Fred, sorry) at the front desk was helpful and super friendly. Hotel is older, but I enjoy that charm. Only complaint was no upper chain lock on the door. Our son is a toddler and very daring. He was able to pull on the door handle and open the door. Never made the escape, but a... More

Accomodating little motel with great view of the ocean. Would definitely take a walk or a run in the morning or watch a romantic sunset in lovers point park. Closer to any fun attraction in monterey area. Good rate.Clean motel.Cozy.Great showers. No pool or spa. A good night sleep.

This is a very old and well known motel directly across the street from one of the most beautiful areas in PG. It's a no frills motel but you can really get budget rates at certain times of the year. The attraction is the location. Large parking area in back and close to everything. Nothing fancy but worth a stay... More

Great location, good room, and once we decided how to turn on the shower it was an ok place. Nothing fancy but heh, compared to the local over priced places, this was perfect! Minutes walk to restaurants and open view rooms are amazing!

The room is a little small, with no bathtub, but this is a very good place to stay in Monterey. My mother lives up the street, and knows the owner. When I made my reservation over the phone, my credit card was overcharged. We had a room with a view of the ocean without paying for it.

If you are staying here it really is worth the extra money to stay in an ocean front room. The views are beautiful and it is so nice to hear the waves whilst in your bedroom. The facilities are good and the rooms comfortable. It is a short walk down to Cannery Row as well as there being good restaurants... More
