“A nice place to stay”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

We have stayed here 2 times now and each time we are pleased with the value. It is a no frills place but we just needed a nice clean place for the night. The bed was great and the towels were the fluffiest we have had so far. The staff is friendly and helpful. We always stay on october and the flowers out front are beautiful.

Clean comfortable well appointed rooms. Easy to find just off freeway but possible to walk to town centre or pier from there, took us 20 mins , or 5 mins driving.

Breakfasts adequate. All in all good value for money

Had an excellent stay. Very comfortable rooms & nice location.
Wish we could have stayed longer. Breakfast was good some addition is possible on the menu.The lady at the front desk was very helpful & eager to help. 35 min walk to the Wharf. Eating you food under the stars and looking into the bay is another experience here. DO TRY IT.

Room Tip: Higher floors are soothing to the eyes.

This was a very good place to stay. The outside of this older property is adorned with Bouganvilla (sp?) plants and quite pretty. Although it's probably a 1950's structure, the rooms have been updated and feel more like a modern mid priced hotel. The bed was comfortable and we found extra pillows in the closet which many places lack. The bath was spotless and updated with granite and tile. The air conditioner was quiet and no problem to sleep with it running. The windows open all the way to let in fresh bay air. This is an older, simple, two story L shape with outside access to all rooms. It's located right off of Highway 1 but there was no highway noise at all. It is within walking distance (1.5 miles) to Fisherman's Wharf, only 1 mile to Loulous' Griddle in the Middle (best food in all of Montery, number one on TA for a reason) and only two blocks from lovely El Estero Park where you can walk around the lagoon. Also a very easy walk to the Municipal Beach and Montery Bay Kayaks. We would certainly stay here again and recommend it to friends. They have a guest laundry room too.

Room Tip: All room have an equal view. Higher room numbers are farther back form the street but it's a qui...

No complaints about the accommodations here. Very clean, large rooms. Quiet place with plenty of free parking. Breakfast layout was adequate. Could have used some yogurt or some protein choices. There is a liquor store nearby. Not much else. Some people say it's a 20 minute walk to the wharf, but it seems longer than that. We decided to drive. My friends and I had 2 rooms, and we wanted to stay another night, but there was only one room available. I was going to take it, but they wanted to bump up the price $50, so we went elsewhere. This is a good value if it is in the $150 range, but not in the $300 range as one reviewer says he/she paid.

Room Tip: Maybe away from the stairwell.

Last minute change of plans allowed us to find this Gem. It clearly qualifies for the Trip Advisor rating and reviews and was the best value for money and even included a continental breakfast!
Stage Coach Lodge is in a nice area and is very quiet. We enjoyed our stay very much for 1 night, en-route for Big-Sur. You couldn’t hear any traffic noise from Highway 1 even though we closest to it in our room 200.
It was easy to climb the short flight of wide stairs to the room (the building is not high so it didn’t need an elevator).
The management are very proud of all they have done to improve the motel and their efforts are clearly paying off because it was full.

We were given a clear map and instructions so had no problems finding Monterey attractions and nearby restaurants.


Thank you for making a stay so pleasant.

Stayed here for 2 nights early September. Supremely clean, immaculately decorated, good service. Breakfast is basic but no different to any other motel-type accommodation.
There's a bit of road noise from highway 1 behind the hotel but not so much as to keep you awake, the rooms are well insulated.
The hotel/motel is at the back of a residential area and about a 20-minute walk / $7 cab ride into old fishermans wharf etc.

Overall - highly recommended and great value.

Steven:

Thanks for highlighting our hotel, Stage Coach Lodge, in your positive review. We do feel our location is a bit off the beaten path, but we feel this is a real plus. We're actually closer to all of Monterey's major attractions than those motels on Munras and Fremont and it's much more quiet and quaint in our neighborhood. We're working hard to show travelers the great value and uniqueness Stage Coach Lodge offers those who visit Monterey.

Do come again and tell your friends. Book directly with us at montereystagecoachlodge.com and save!
