Every time I visit Monterey I stay at the El Dorado Inn; the personal is very kind, rooms are good and very clean and the breakfast, featuring homemade muffin, is great! The location is quite good, being close to the wharf and 5 minutes by car from Carmel and the Aquarium.

Stayed: October 2013

We stayed here one night whilst passing through monterey. The room was lovely recently decorated and spotlessly clean.

Unlike most motels that include breakfast, this one was homemade. The owner gets up every morning to bake fresh muffins, there was also hot cereal and a fresh fruit salad available. Very very nice.

The hotel was very nice and clean. The room was large. The owner was renovating the hotel. He was a really nice guy. The lady at the reception was very helpful and gave us advise as to where to eat or directions to several places. The location was good and the price that we pay was super reasonable. I would come back to this hotel.

Motel has recently been taken over by a new owner... super friendly and enthusiastic.She was very helpful and gave loads of information about the local area. She has great plans for the place and is busy renovating the motel. The room was spacious and clean...had a roll out bed for child #3. The homemade muffins, boiled eggs and fruit salad were a tasty start to the day.
