Super 8 Monterey
Ranked #34 of 56 Hotels in Monterey
Reviewed May 15, 2013

What the previous reviewer said is almost true:
Small room, small area for breakfast and simple breakfast (no fruit, no juice...)

But I have to add that the my room was very quiet, which is a very good point (often motels are very noisy) and the bathroom was great.

My room was clean and I even got a reduced price because I was alone.

I would definitely stay here again and I'd recommend this motel.

Where to begin? This is a basic motel. Nobody will argue with that. However, even for this category, the room was very small. Same goes for the breakfast area, your in reception, just a handful of people can sit down. If this is the situation, just don't offer breakfast at all.
So far, so small. The room seemed cleanish, until we spotted the layer of dust on top of the old-fashioned tv. Weeks and weeks of dust...
All in all, I wouldn't recommend staying here, unless you're on the tightest of budgets. Because one thing was excellent: the rate!

Our property is smaller in size, but we try to offer all the value added amenities at no charge to our guest. We apologize you found dust above the TV and will work with our housekeeping staff to do a better job dusting the rooms. Please feel welcomed at our property anytime.

This is a basic motel, but was a really great value. I stayed here with my husband and kids on a trip to the aquarium and it was perfect.

The room was inexpensive, but very clean and updated. We had no problems whatsoever. The breakfast was very, very basic and the eating area is tiny (I think it only seats 4). But, breakfast is free and was very convenient. The motel was a very short drive to the aquarium.

Fyi, be aware that there are 2 Super 8 Motels in Monterey so be sure you get the correct one. I had a mix up where I booked with the other one, but then called this one to confirm (my fault) and did not realize there were 2 different ones. Anyway, this location gave very good service to me with the mix up, while the other did not.

Would definitely stay here again.

We are glad you felt our property was a great value. Our location is just a quick drive to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It is unfortunate you experienced problems with the other Super 8 in Monterey. While we share the same name, each property is independently owned and operated. Thank you and we hope to see you soon.

This has to have been the bargain of the century!
We made this last minute booking the night before our stay based on the other Tripadvisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed.
The staff were friendly, and we even received a free upgrade to a king size room on check in!
The hotel was conveniently located close to the highway which made it easy to find, and it wasn't too far from town (we had a car which made getting around easy for us).
The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable.
The breakfast was just an added bonus and a great start to the day.

I would definitely stay here again, and recommend this hotel to others.
It may not be a beachside boutique hotel, but it certainly hit the mark for our needs!

We stopped here to begin a trip down the Pacific Coast Highway. Lady at the fromt desk was helpful in providing information and directions. Plenty of restuarants nearby..right next to the Freeway....good price for the area. Very basic, its a place to sleep...
