I've stayed in a bunch of these types of places as we dive Monterey frequently. I'd break it down like this:
Pros: Great bed - we had a very comfortable king bed that was much better than average for this type of motel. Quiet despite being on a busy street. The windows shut, this place is very peaceful. We slept GREAT and we are picky. Also, the location is handy for just about anything. You can walk to fisherman's wharf in 15/20 mins at a moderate pace, though it's uphill on the return. Access to shops, movie theater, restaurants and roads(especially Hwy 1) is fantastic. Everything was pretty clean for us. Free internet actually WORKED without any issue and it was pretty good speed as i had to work remotely for a few hours. Last, but not least, the price is very good.
Cons: Parking lot is tiny if you have a large vehicle. Breakfast was less than what others in the area will give you, not terrible though. Basically, you're getting cereal with bad coffee and super sweet orange juice. It's loud if you leave the window open for fresh air as a ton of traffic goes by from the mall across the street and folks accessing the highway nearby.
Everything else.....room size, front desk, small pool, maid service, TV/cable....was average.
Hopefully, you understand you are not getting a business class hotel. So don't expect that and you will be pretty pleased overall I believe. It's great for a night or three when you just need a good place to sleep while you site see.
