“Very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2011

We turned into the parking lot and were relieved to see a visually appealing, well kept motel with flowering landscaping. Check in was quick and our room was immaculate. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was just how we like it. The room was large and we were very satisfied. The location was perfect for easily getting around the Monterey area. The area was quiet and within walking distance to several restaurants. The owners/staff were pleasant and helpful, the free wireless was fast and reliable. We couldn't have been more satisfied with our stay for the price.

We stayed at this motel for 1 day on our Highway 1 trip. Great value for money. Clean room, great bed and excellent price.

At a much better rate than competitors, we were very pleased by Lone Oak - it is a fairly standard basic motel, but with helpful staff and comfortable and quiet rooms, as well as a useful location for Monterey town and activities.
Only small issue for us - the room was generally clean, but were put off a little by the mystery blonde hair in the shower!
Overall, though, a good stay at a place I would recommend to budget travellers.

In good location, close to CA 1 and easy to find. Quaint, small, clean, no frills, older lodge somewhat updated; bath appeared to have been recently updated & tiled - very clean. Room was large and beds comfortable. We didn't use their Sauna & Jacuzzi, but it was just across the parking lot. Parking right in front of the room.
Don't expect classy resort environment - very homey & low key! Clean & comfortable for low rate.

We stayed at Lone Oak Lodge two nights and at the Inn at Spanish Bay two nights. Normally, I don't stay at properties at such extremes. We stayed at Lone Oak because of TripAdvisor reviews. We had a small bedroom where my wife and I slept. The main entry room had 3 beds for the 3 kids (20 year olds) to sleep. There was a full kitchen and even a dining area. We got this room on Memorial Day weekend for less than $150 dollars a night. What a great value! Brought my average price per night way down when added to the cost of the Inn at SB. Lone Oak was comfortable, clean and rooms were big. The only negative with the rooms -- it had only one bathroom. For a party of 5, this slowed us down. They have no restaurant on-site but there is a Black Bear Diner very close for breakfast. I would consider staying here again if bringing a family. If my wife and I travel alone, we will probably choose a nice bed and breakfast.

Room Tip: Call the Lodge directly and speak with the manager

Our one night at Lone Oak Lodge was just right for what we needed after a late night flight into San Francisco and then the almost three hour drive to Monterey. The area is lined with travel motels that are simple and well-kept, and Lone Oak fit that description well. After traveling all that time, pulling up to the door of our room was appreciated -no long walks. The manager on duty the next morning was very helpful in outling suggested tours and marking a map for us. My only criticism is that there is on 24-hour front desk, and since I called about our late arrival by accident, the manager made arrangements for a late-night key pick-up. If I hadn't called by accident, there would have been no one on duty upon arrival -so if you're going to arrive late at night, be sure to call ahead to make those arrangements.
