This motel is a very good option for visiting Monterey and is walking distance to Fishermans Wharf and Cannery Row (~15 mins). Most of the common motel brands also have properties in this neighborhood, but i find that this has one of the better locations being closer to downtown as well as city/ocean view from some rooms.
We stayed in one of their king bed ocean view rooms located in the second building just across the street. When making the booking I was a bit skeptical about a motel claiming to have ocean views, especially since all of the exterior pics of the hotel is featuring the main building which is a classic two-storey motel building, which clearly does not have a view. The room was on the third floor and did in fact have a nice view and was the largest motel room i have stayed in. The room was a bit dated and the shower head only around 5 ft above the ground, but apart from this is was a very nice room.
Generally a very nice motel and a convenient location with many good restaurants within 5-10 mins walk, but it should of course not be compared to the 4-5 star hotels just by Cannery Row.
My only negative remark is regarding a bad experience with the staff. The front desk called me up at 3am (!) and said that the room below us were complaining about noise, clearly suggesting that it was coming from my room. At that time i had been asleep for 4 hours and was very unhappy with being woken up in the middle of the night. The entire hotel is very loud so the noise could have been coming from any room, not just the one above those complaining. The staff should know this and go to the building to locate the noise - not just call random rooms in the middle of the night. The person who called did not even apologize for waking me up.
