“Perfect for families!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

We just stayed at the Lone Oak Lodge this weekend with our two small children, and we were so comfortable and pleased with our room! Immaculately clean, like others have said, and our room had all up-dated fixtures (sink, shower, etc.). We stayed in a 2-room cottage, which had two twin beds in the front room (where our boys stayed), a queen (?) bed in our separate room, a master bath with bath/shower combo, and a full kitchen. I was surprised at how well-equipped the kitchen was: pots, pans, cooking utensils, plates, silverware, mugs, a toaster, a waffle-maker (!), full-sized fridge, oven/stove, microwave, etc. Not only was the room the most affordable I could find for our family in Monterey, but we saved a lot of money by cooking meals ourselves (though there are amazing places to eat in town, so you'll want to make sure to venture out, too). Also, the Lodge is conveniently located near a bus stop with service directly to the Aquarium, so you don't have to deal with parking down there. So excited to find a great and affordable place to stay in one of our favorite towns! We're already planning our next trip!

Room Tip: Cottages are perfect for families!

Thank you for the this great review! You can't beat the Cottages for families. The kitchen will save money in the long run. Having to eat out for every meal can get expensive. Again, thank you for the review!

We stayed overnight in rooms 5 and 6 this past weekend, with my in-laws, while we were vacationing along California route 1. I was a little concerned about what to expect because the room was very inexpensive, and not a chain hotel like we're used to-- and they're accustomed... but this was SUCH a surprise! The room was very clean. There was a little sign, 'cleaned by Andrea', with her contact information in case anything wasn't up to our standards, which seemed impossible. We just kept noticing how clean and neat everything was. Everything about the decoration was pretty bare and a little dated, but not ugly or broken in any way (nice granite bathroom sinks, cute bathroom but the shower head was a little low for my 6' 3'' husband). The bed was SO comfortable and it was freezing outside, but the room was toasty warm. The room came with a microwave and fridge, which was great for late night munchies. We would absolutely stay here again.

Just spent the Thanksgiving weekend at Monterey. The Lone Oak Lodge is still the best place ever. The rooms are always clean and neat. Fresh flowers, and the service is great. The cleaning staff comes in every day to clean and freshen the room. Always puts everything back where we had it after cleaning tables and counters. Everyone is always, friendly, polite and courteous. The office staff is very helpful and friendly. THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE!!! We had a wonderful weekend.

I visit this area often and have always stayed at this motel. This motel is very reasonable priced, and cleaner than a hotel you would pay 4x more for. The owners are so nice and have been there for over 20 years. It is very apparent the housecleaning crew has worked with a manager with high standards. I stay alone and have always felt safe and comfortable. I will continue to stay at this motel as long as I visit Monterey.

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 2 grown up sons. The owner is delightful, she gave us loads of information about the area and tips on where to go. We had a cottage with 2 bedrooms, bathroom and well fitted kitchen. The place was spotless, with a Hot tub, sauna and mini gym available. Well located for Monterey.

Thank you so much for your review. Cottages are really nice for families. Because they do have a full kitchen, it saves on eating out.

Our king room was clean, roomy and quiet. It had two comfortable chairs, which we especially appreciated after spending most of the day on our feet - much more comfortable than sitting on a bed propped up with pillows against the headboard (which is what I'm doing right now in our next motel down the road). Staff was very helpful and friendly. Hot tub and sauna were wonderful. Shower only and no breakfast - not much of a drawback for us. Good value. We extended our stay an additional night, and would stay again.

We're frugal seniors...Nice large, quiet room, a long way from the highway. Hotel is easy to find, but is not in walking distance to anything in particular. If you choose to dine in the waterfront area, watch out for restricted parking areas, which are patrolled even at night.

Room Tip: Note that there are rooms well away from the highway.
