Reviewed October 15, 2013

We stayed four nights and it was a very good experience. Personnel very helpful and polite. Cleaning etc was perfect. Kitchen was very clean and well equipped.Free parking and free WiFi.
Wellness are I did not use, but at least the sauna looked fine. Even though close to the major road, no noise in the rooms, perfect sleep quality in good beds. Close by many restaurants.
Only minus is that is it a bit far way from the Monterey city center (not walking distance) and as well no breakfast offered by the motel. Bathroom smelled of (new) plastic.

Room Tip: Take a cottage if you travel with family. It has a kitchen and has very good value for money.

Thank you so much for your review! The Cottage are very popular. Great if you have kids. We just put new vinyl flooring and base in all of the Cottage bathrooms, could be a slight plastic aroma from that?

After having checked about 40 hotels & motels in the area (online), we opted for this one.

It was easy to find and the lady at the reception was very nice. She was interested in our trip and was glad to give you some tips.

The room was clean and well-equipped (flat screen, coffee maker, hair dryer ...). The furniture could be more recent but without being a deal breaker. The bed was comfy.

The motel has also a spa room but unfortunately we didn't have time to profit from it.

I think that it's a good choice when looking for something in Monterey for a reasonable price.

I had a class to attend from the week and stumbled onto this motel. The motel is an older one but kept up very well. I was very pleased to find a clean room with a comfortable bed. I will definitely stay here again. The only negative was that the shower was a bit small.

I was looking for 1 night at a reasonable price. All I wanted was a bed and bathroom for in one night, out the next morning. Lone Oak suited me perfectly.

It's located on Fremont street, which is very much a low-cost hotel/restaurant strip, so don't expect scenic views.

But, I was pleasantly surprised by the room - very modern and clean. It looked like the room had had a very recent reno. The bed was quite comfortable, and the counter/sink area and separate toilet/shower room were spotless.

If all you need is a place to crash, I'd check this out first. If you can get a rate you like, don't bother looking further.

One downside - no air conditioning. Not an issue the night I was there, but if it ever gets hot in Monterey, I imagine the room could get uncomfortable.

Room Tip: Turn right out of the parking lot, walk 5 minutes to Monterey Cookhouse, probably the best restauran...

Thank you for your review. While Monterey never really gets that warm, we do have fans in each room. Our weather is a lot like San Francisco. The Monterey Cookhouse is a great place to eat and within walking distance of the Lodge

I stayed at the lone oak lodge for 2 nights and this is really a good and affordable option in Monterey. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the hot tub in the spa was lovely after a long day.
The only down side is that it is about 15 minutes by car from the city center, but that was really no problem.
