Super 8 Monterey
Ranked #36 of 56 Hotels in Monterey
Reviewed September 19, 2012

We arrived here for a two-night stay and were greeted by the friendly manager, Bindi, who cannot do enough for you. We didn't listen to her recommendation for somewhere to eat much to our cost, but the second night took her recommendation of the Monterey Smokehouse where we had an excellent meal. The motel is clean, the bed was really comfortable and the breakfast was just what we lik to et in the mornings, consisting of fruit juice, cereals, toast, pastries, tea and coffee. We highly recommend this motel.

Were going to be in Monterey for one night and this is spot on. Great room, really clean. Free breakfast in the morning which is really nice of them. Overall a perfect option for Monterey stay over. It is slightly outside town but did not put us off, well priced and plenty of parking too.

Stayed one night on trip up the PCH. Good size, clean rooms with free wifi. Bed and pillows were comfortable and we slept well. Breakfast is usual continental but coffee good. Several eateries in the area and reception helpful in giving advise.

Our one night stay during our drive down the PCH was great. The managers are wonderful, friendly people. The rooms were clean, the bathrooms are updated and the bed was comfy! It was a great spot to stay for a night! They also had a nice, complimentary breakfast in the morning before we headed to the aquarium! It's about a 10 minute drive (in traffic) from here to Cannery Row.

I had a terrible terrible (x2) night at Super 8 Monterey. The fire alarm set off in the middle of the night at 2 am for no reason and only in my room. It defeats the purpose of a motel where people need to the rest during long drives. Terrible terrible (x4). Nobody showed up, would it have been a real fire the whole motel would have burnt down to ashes. No staff to help/enquire, no fire brigade, no nothing. After 5 good minutes pressing my ears and praying it would stop I headed towards the reception and the problem was promptly fixed by... changing the battery of the fire detector in my room. Yes, you read it well. If the battery was changed on regular basis, this problem would never ever happen. The morning after, when complaining to the staff, they refused to take responsabality and pretended it was out of their hands, first ime it happened during the night (sic!), batteries are changed every month, etc. They finally deigned to apologize.

On the brighter side, the staff was extremely friendly otherwise, the room was looking old but clean and the bathroom large and very clean. I could have used more water pressure in the shower though.

The motel is a very short drive away from "interesting" places in Monterey.

Oh, another bad thing: breakfast. A tiny table with 5 chairs at the reception desk. Imagine 5 people eating, 5 persons checking out, all of that in 5 square meters... Plus, the quality of food was sub par.

Room Tip: Ask for the battery of the fire detector to be changed ;)

Thank you for your feedback. We will evaluate our current standard in replacing smoke alarm batteries to prevent an inconvenience in the future. The smoke detectors in the room are designed to notify the guests in the room of a possible danger similar to what would be found in most homes. Our staff wouldn't know unless they physically heard the smoke detector inside the room. A fire alarm on the other hand, every occupant on the property would hear a siren. Again, thank you for your valuable feedback.

Gave this place five stars for a solid value. Updated and clean room, comfy bed, nice size bathroom, and friendly front desk staff. While it was just a short drive to Fisherman's Wharf and the Aquarium, the area was otherwise just okay and right next to the fairgrounds. We only heard a few planes overhead as it's also near the airport, but it was not an issue for us at all. If on a budget, we would definately stay here again. Really a great value for the money.

My husband and I and 2 teenagers stayed here. We had one room divided into 2 rooms with a connecting door with a tv in each room so ideal for us. There was a large clean bathroom and there was coffee making facilities. There is free wi-fi and a very basic continental breakfast. There are several restaurants in the area so plenty options. Short drive to get into Monterey.
The owners of this hotel are very friendly and welcoming.
