Reviewed July 1, 2014

I am a woman 65 years old and I found this hotel to feel very welcoming with many touches of home. There is a room divider between the two beds in my room giving me and my partner a little more privacy. There was a bathroom with a heater in it. There was a refrigerator and a microwave, and a private porch on the second floor. The front desk was very nice and helpful. He came down to adjust my refrigerator for me. I found a lot of families here and it was still very peaceful and I enjoyed the big whirlpool. This hotel is close to downtown, cannery row and the boats pier. I was very happy to swim in the warm pool early in the a.m. hours. The breakfast included self made waffles which were great. I will return to this spot. This hotel is smoke free and is a good value.

Room Tip: The downstairs do not have private porches but they have easy access to pool and outdoor table. Upst...

We were very happy with our stay and the customer service provided by the manager. We were travelling in the late evening after the work and likely to reach Monterey very late. We checked the price on hotels.com and called the motel to confirm that the room is available or not. The manager gave us even better price than hotels.com. We reached at about 11.45 PM and the manager was waiting for us, he was very friendly and very nice, quick check-in. Nice big room with King Size bed and had a microwave, refrigerator and coffeemaker in room. Room was very clean and had a beautiful balcony. Very good complimentary breakfast with boiled eggs, waffles, fruits. The breakfast area bit small. Nice and big swimming pool, hot tub and a garden area. Very beautiful landscaping. We definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: better to check price with the motel

Bang for buck - especially in Monterey - this was a good choice. I like a cold room and these guys offer only fans and sliding doors for ventilation, but once the sun went down it cooled off well enough. The room was comfortable, and they have a sparkling clean large inground pool with lovely grounds and relaxing chairs to sit in. It wasn't the nicest place I've stayed but it was nice enough and great value!

We were in town to run the Spartan Race and this hotel was close to Toro park and fit our budget. After the race we were able to walk to the Steak House in downtown Monterey. The room had (2) full beds, small frigerator, mircowave, upstairs patio. It is nice fair priced place to stay with a simple breakfast. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side face the pool

We stayed here to attend an event at the fairgrounds. The hosts are VERY nice and friendly and the breakfast is really good! They have literally perfected the hard boiled egg, delicious!

We were able to walk to and from the fairgrounds without any problem. We did take a cab one night from the fairgrounds, it was approximately 13.00 plus tip. The wharf area is charming although a little pricey. We also walked there.

Worth the price compared to the other hotels for sure! We will be back!

Stayed here for a couple of days, location convenient, on edge of town but still able to walk to town. Pleasant room, does not have a/c, not a problem for us but maybe in the summer, fridge and microwave were very useful. TV was excellent , 40 inch Sony. Pool and hot tub just outside our room. Breakfast room can get a little crowded but range on offer was good.
