This is an alright place to stay if you're traveling on a budget. The staff seemed nice, the room was clean, though a little on the small side, and the location is convenient to the attractions in Monterey. Our room had no A/C and the electric stand up fan was broken. We called down to the office and they brought us a working fan, so that was a plus. During the night we opened our window since it was hard to sleep with the fan buzzing at the foot of the bed, but that was a problem too since every footstep and piece of luggage that was carted through the area echoed through the door sized window that faced the walkway and parking lot, plus someone could literally step in through it if desired. After a not so good night's sleep we headed to the office for our "complimentary breakfast" which consisted of a loaf of sliced bread and concentrated orange juice, and if you wanted that, you had to "toast and run" since there wasn't any space to sit and eat. Other than that, it's fine for a budget motel, but will cost a little more.
