Definately a value for the money. Clean, well maintained and in a quiet residential area. The room was very good - refrigerator, microwave comfortable furnishings. There was nothing of interest to a tourist within walking distance, so it was necessary to use the car all the time.

I would not stay there again unless I could get a second floor room. Too much of the footsteps and "floor noises" came through. At times it seemed like it was a "rent by the hour" establishment. Can't fault the owners for guest behavior, but the upstairs noises combined combined with the fishermen(?) loading their gear and "warming up" the junker diesel pickup early in the a.m. did not make for a good night sleep. But fortunately those guests were there for only the first of the two nights we spent.

We stayed one night during last week of April. I considered worth the price and the stay. We found the service at expected level (can’t say more since we only stayed for one night). It is a small motel that seems to be well run and maintained. Although we only stayed one night, I appreciated the very clean room and bathroom, nice comfortable King Size bed in a quiet neighborhood. Breakfast was included in the price although it does not offer much choice (muffin, juice, coffee). If you choose to skip breakfast keep in mind that many places in Monterey, including tourist area near the aquarium, only open for breakfast around 10 am.
I have rated this place based on its category (not against high number of stars hotels)

Great location (if you're driving) to easily get to Monterey's top attractions. We went to the Aquarium (buy your two day pass at the Americas Best Value Stage Coach Lodge -- cash only), Fisherman's Wharf, and several of the Cannery area restaurants (try the Fish Hopper for their incredible early bird special, though that may disappear by summer). A side trip to the Carmel Mission, on the way to Point Lobos State Park, is also an easy and worthy expedition.
Very friendly owners. Our room was quiet and very good value. Recommended.

Handy base to stay for a night or two, do your laundry (washing machine and dryer cost $2 per load which was a little costly compared to laundromats, however convenient). Swimming pool small and is more for appearance rather than use. Plenty of carparking - easy access to highway 1. Would recommend

What a nice motel in my one night stop during my Pacific Cost Highway trip.
I felt welcome by the nice couple who run the place. They were very helpful and friendly.
I had a spacious room with fridge, microwave and everything.
Good parking.

Under USD 80 tax included was a bargain.

We stayed here for one night on our way down the coast. I am very picky when it comes to hotel rooms. The most important criteria for me is whether or not the room is clean and quiet. I am happy to say that the room we had was both. While nothing fancy, the room had been freshly updated and was clean. The only thing I wish had been different is that this hotel uses thin polyester blankets and bedspreads. I would strongly prefer a comforter with a duvet that has been washed prior to each guest's stay rather than a blanket or bedspread that has who knows what on it from the previous guests. Our comforter and blanket appeared clean, but it still bothered me that it may have been used by someone else before we slept under it. The only other thing worth mentioning is that the toilet flushes as loudly as an airplane bathroom. The whoosh it makes when flushed was startling each time we used it. The location was excellent and the price was a good value.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a clean, well-maintained place to stay in Monterey for under $100.
