“Basic, clean, cheap”
Reviewed July 14, 2010

First and foremost, this place was cheap. We paid $55/night for two nights, mid-week. The room was run-down but clean; if we weren't sure of the latter, the strong smell of disinfectant was very convincing. The bathroom was very spacious.

The shower may have been the worst I've ever used in my life. At the time I thought the low water pressure was due to a water conservation effort, but I'm pretty sure the shower head just wasn't working properly. The toilet leaked.

The place was better than I expected in some ways, but not great. It met our basic needs and I'm not sure what more you can ask for at the price.

This is a basic US motel and was good for a one night stay driving to San Francisco. It is quite close to a main intersection and like all US motels it is difficult to make tea with the coffee making machines. Downtown Monterey is not really within walking distance. There is a large supermarket directly opposite.

stayed at knight's inn one night for a weekend getaway. it was essentially roadside motel quality, however much more expensive than such. furniture and decor was dated. bed was old and very creaky, and the sheets were thin. walls were so thin we could hear everything that was said above and to the side. continental breakfast was fine, seemed like costco muffins and some juice. next time, i'd look for something a bit better...

* The sheets have holes and are flimsy.
* The grouting in the bathroom is broken and in large parts missing. A moldy smell reigns in the bathroom.
* The toilet is loose and goes "bonk" when you sit down or get up.
* Although breakfast was supposed to be included in the price, we couldn't get any: when I asked for breakfast at 7:05am I got the answer: "Sorry, we don't serve breakfast before 8."
* The room's door rattled in the wind.
* The curtains are flimsy, don't keep the light out at all.

This hotel was excellent and I couldn't believe how lovely it was for the price. The room was large and the bed was huge with about 100 pillows - they even turned down the bed at night! The bathroom was spotless. There was plenty of parking out the front and the internet was super-fast (I wasn't able to access the wifi from my room so the office gave me a cable instead). The breakfast looked okay but basic - I went for pastries in town anyway.

The hotel was further from the centre of Monterey than I expected, but that's my responsibility for not checking more closely. I'd stay at this hotel again anyway!

A tip for Monterey: get some take-out Mexican at Jose's on Wave Street (near the cinema) and walk or drive to Ocean View Boulevard. There are plenty of carparks and you can enjoy a lovely sunset view to go with a tasty and inexpensive dinner. Best value view in town!
