“Good motel. However, with PGA in town, overpriced...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2011

Stayed here one night. I wanted to take the 17 Mile Drive in the morning, but with the PGA in town at Pebble Beach, the drive was closed to tourists. Thus, negating my plans for coming to Monterey in the first place. With that being said, it did have an effect on our stay at the Motel 6 Monterey. You see, with the PGA in town, they can charge double what they usually do. So the $85 price tag for this hotel seemed a bit steep. It did not take away too much from my stay here; rooms were super clean and efficient. Comfortable beds, and clean bathroom. Staff was a bit lackadasical, but overall a decent stay. If I am ever in the area again, I would stay here if the price was right.... better make sure the PGA is not in town...

We were real happy with this California motel 6. Unlike so many others, it wasn't the teeny bopper party spot. The room was clean, staff courteous and helpful, quiet, comfy.

Nice motel a bit outside of Monterey. The room was a bit cramped (2 Q), but clean and quiet (back of the motel). The A/C worked fine without being too noisy. The lady at the reception recommended The “Monterey Cookhouse” for dinner (perfect, it’s just across the road- very handy if you are in Monterey on a really rainy day) and “the Breakfast Club” a bit down the road for breakfast (great; we loved it, and still talk about it…remember the breakfast burrito…yummy)

Other posters mentioned the noise of the planes. Yes there are some small aircrafts leaving but it’s nothing compared to living under the flight path for London Heathrow….

not enough parking, and what was there was reeeeally tight, otherwise it was on the nicer side of your average motel 6, also pretty pricey compared to most motel 6s if you can better to drive from Seaside or Marina or so... the other downside was they had a sign stating "if guests stay after 1030 they must come in and pay" so apparently its the "meeting" place for many... which might explain the parking

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2009

We paid just under $100/night for this motel as it was the most reasonable we could find in Monterey at the time. Nice for a Motel 6, clean, but room was a little small. New looking bedspreads, small pool in front. Free coffee in a.m. Restaurants within walking distance. There was air in plumbing which caused loud noises from our pipes and other surrounding rooms. We stayed for four nights and were awakened all night long whenever other people used their bathrooms. I complained to management who checked out the plumbing and said groups of four rooms were connected to the same plumbing. We received a certificate for one free night within a year at any Motel 6. Something unusual occurred one night as I watched the people next door carry 16 cages of rabbits into their room. I asked management if they were aware of this and was told the occupants of that room "registered a pet". A couple days later, we saw the cages being carried out and loaded into several vehicles. Not sure what the Health Dept. would have to say about this. Although the motel was in a good part of town, I can't recommend it due to the loud noises caused by the pipes. I don't know if other guests had the same problem.

Monterey can be VERY expensive so, based on Tripadvisor reviews, I was looking for a choice that had reasonably good reviews at a fair price. I picked this Motel 6 for a 2 night stay and paid $57.99 + tax per night (which is cheap for the area).
My findings were; (a) the room was clean (b) the staff was very friendly
(c) 20 channel choice on the TV (d) very large tub/shower combination. The tub was probably 30% wider than average and the sprayer was the rainwater type and was better than some nice hotels I've stayed in - it was great! (e) good shopping and eating choices nearby (f) the walls are kind of thin (as a previous reviewer says).
It's your usual Motel 6 - try somewhere else if you want a luxurious experience, but it's a good choice for Monterey.

Stayed May 2009, traveled solo

i certainly wasn't expecting much from a motel 6, but we were on a tight budget this trip so i thought why not give it a try. let me say that we will stay here again! the staff was polite, the room was clean, the water pressure and shower were great. It was a little noisy--close to RR tracks and airport. but that kind of noise you get used to. didn't hear anything from neighboring rooms at all. location great, only a few minutes to cannery row. so, overall a nice surprise for only $50/night.
