Due to exceptionally busy period in Monterey, we had trouble booking a hotel for one night in August, two rooms, parents and three adult children. Found rooms here and hoped against hope it wasn't going to be that bad. It was terrible. First, reservations were under the same name but they gave us rooms on opposite sides of the motel. Room on the street first floor side was quiet, but had a welcome letter for some group we knew nothing about. Second room was on the dreaded second floor. Two flight of stairs up, one flight of stairs down, no elevator. Tried to open the door to the room, three times. Had to go back up and down the stairs. They had put the wrong room # on the key. Rooms were musty and warm, no air conditioning or circulation. Their solution was to open the balcony doors, however that made it exceptionally noisey and that didn't work for the street level room. They provided a tiny floor fan that started vibrating loudly in the middle of the night. Had made arrangements for a rollaway. They didn't even know where they were. Had to wait for the night janitor to show up. Finally got the bed at 10:45 pm. Breakfast was what you would expect, except no hot cup lids. Front Desk tried, they meant well, but clearly they appeared overwhelmed with even the basics of running a motel.
