“Time warp to the 80's”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Getting to the room of this hotel is like getting into a nightmare to the 80's. There is no A/c (climate control). The weather was around 60 degrees, however, we had to open the glass door to get fresh air in. The cigarrette smell from people outside came into the room and also all the noise. The table where we place the computer almost fall apart, it was all loose. The wall paper in the bathroom is dirty There is no facilities to plug the cellulars and the cameras. We had to unplug lamps and even the fridge to get our cel's and camera plugged. They gave us a pool view, but the pool had no water in it.

Travelodge, get your act together, please!!!!

Room Tip: There are more hotels down the same street. Try other hotels.

great customer service, excellent location, clean, friendly atmsophere, and the you cant beat the value, it is a seasonal hotel pool, you can always just make a phone call for current updates. Well worth the $$. A little courtesy goes along way on the penninsula.

Very dissatisfied!! The room was semi clean with a very strong chemical smell. There were white drip marks on two walls and on the side of the fabric chairs. I don't know what it was! My husband could not even slide the window open to get fresh air because the tracks were dirty. The drain in the shower did not drain well at all......the tub filled up with five inches of water when I showered. There was loud music with heavy bass played until 11:30pm from the rear of the hotel. The airplanes fly right over the hotel....they were very loud! We had to turn the fridge on when we got there and it whistled all night! The pool was out of order! I was not impressed with the continental breakfast, so we passed . We had originally reserved two nights, but we didn't want to stay another night, so we lost our money on the second night and changed hotels!!

Room Tip: Read all the reviews and pay a little more to get better service.

We arrived on a rainy afternoon (Sigh) but our check in was brightened up by Erika in reception. She had a distinct warmth about her that is very welcoming after a long drive. The room was huge for us being London residents with very comfy beds, a safe with a light and airy ambience. But the best and truly unforgettable dining experience was from the Oh! Sushi restaurant located within the premises. The servings were huge and served by authentic Japanese chefs but still very good value for money. I highly recommend this hotel as it has ticked all the boxes for value, location and friendliness of staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room if you have heavy luggage as there are no lifts.

Stayed two nights to go to the aquarium. Was prepared after reading the reviews. Good location right off freeway. Reserved double beds non-smoking. Checked in and noticed our room was used for smoking with the last guest. They changed our room right away. It was clean and roomy. Nothing fancy, but did the job for a couple of nights. The location of the room made us feel safe with it located on the back side of the hotel. Staff very friendly.
Couple of corks. We agree with the water pressure. Not enough. More than 2 people in your party be careful with how much hot water you will get. Did not realize the hotel is a flight path for air planes taking off. Did not last all night, only a couple of hours. Continental breakfast, is very basic with dry ceral, bagels and muffins. Works for the budget travler.

Room Tip: Back side of hotel is quieter, away from street and felt safer.

here is a list: no hot water!
airport near by - planes fly over
towels are very thin.
the continental breakfast - skip it not worth it. plus you have someone looking over your shoulder.

Pay a little more if anything for a hot shower.

Room Tip: pay a little more and try and stay close to downtown monterey. There are plenty of hotels near there...
