“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

After I told my wife we spent under $90/night to stay here, she was pleasantly surprised - and so was I after staying here.

The room was clean and spacious. Heater worked great. And the bathroom was a good size too. The hot water was insanely hot but in a good way.

King bed was really comfortable and there was a sofa sleeper in the room too. I tried to get my 4 yr old to sleep on it but she wanted to sleep with mommy and daddy for the night.

I read the reviews about the continental breakfast so when I went downstairs to check it out, I wasn't disappointed at all. There is a Denny's next door so if you want an inexpensive meal, you can easily walk right over. On the other side of the hotel is a restaurant called Monterey Cookhouse and they have great food and excellent service.

The walls are thin but I sort of expected based on earlier reviews. It was MLK holiday weekend but it wasn't noisy or crowded. Not a lot of traffic on the main road (Fremont St) either.

I would definitely stay here again.

Forget staying close to Cannery Row or the Aquarium and stay at the De Anza Inn! It's just a short drive to all the major sites and you can save a lot of $$$. The parking is free, the adequate breakfast is free, the WiFi is free, and our room was large, quiet, and comfortable. Couldn't ask for more--Well, maybe have more tables for eating breakfast.

The people who work here, from the front desk to the cleaning staff, are very friendly and accommodating. This made us so comfortable that we extended our stay! Hotel is not really within walking distance of downtown (about 2 miles). it is within biking distance. Nevertheless, with the great customer service and reasonable prices, this hotel is very much worth it!!

We decided to pick this hotel because of the reviews, we didn't need luxury and had amenities we wanted. The way our gps took us in was a bit interesting but as soon as we spotted the hotel we were impressed. The hotel is clean and well maintained. Check in was quick and very friendly. We got a room on the 2nd floor right by the lobby but never once heard any noise. The room was very large with table and chairs.

After our last hotel my daughter was thrilled she could access Wi-Fi in the room! big plus! Also this hotel has direct TV with tons of channels to chose from.

It seems like it is outside Monterey but it is only 1 exit down and only took about 10 minutes to get into the area. There is a Safeway about a mile down and a Denny's right next door. Breakfast was a basic continental, fruit, instant oatmeal packets, 4 types of cereal, juice etc. Perfectly okay for what we needed.

The beds were very comfy and the only real complaint I could see was the water out of the tub faucet was very strong but as soon as we flipped to shower it was very weak. Plus got very hot when the toilet was flushed. Not a big deal. Just took longer in the shower to rinse my thick hair.

Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: Very small hotel all rooms I am sure are fine.

This is a modern well appointed hotel in that hotel/commercial fringe zone of the town. Suitable for an overnight stop. The staff were extremely polite and efficient and the room was very comfortable, big and quiet. There is no dining in the hotel but a very good diner, the Monterey Cookhouse, close by saved the day. Otherwise the location is a cultural desert. The breakfast was a joke. THREE tables in a corner of the lobby and plastic and cardboard food. The eggs were probably cooked the day they opened and reheated every morning. If you value just quiet, sleep, clean, one night, it's quite OK.

Room Tip: The front rooms overlook the main road so side or back rooms might be quieter.

Thank you for your recent review of our property. Most of our guests appreciate our convenient
proximity to local attractions and the value we offer not being in the center of town. I am sorry you were disappointed with the breakfast. Unfortunately, we do not have a full kitchen and must microwave scrambled egg patties & sausage links fresh daily. We do appreciate your 4 out of 5 rating given the words used in your review title. Thanks again for your time and consideration.

Have stayed here many many times, great prices, clean, big rooms. Very friendly staff. Off the main tourist area, but, very easy to get around to all the popular spots in Monterey. We visit the area two or three times a year and will continue to stay here.

Room Tip: all non smoking rooms.....
