The hotel is ok for a 1 night stay, but I wouldn’t go longer than that. The manager is a real nice guy and delivered excellent customer service. However, the hotel itself is very dated and dumpy. The TV/Satellite system that they use is very complex and the remote control doesn’t work properly for it. I think you need a degree to operate the thing. The ice machine was broken, which was a bummer since we were needing to fill our ice chest with perishables and sodas. Breakfast is more like a morning snack. The breakfast sitting room is very small with only a couple of tables to sit at.
The location of the hotel is actually decent. It’s about 1.5 miles back to the highway. However, there are 3 Best Western properties on the street along that stretch. So you really have to pay attention to which one you turn into. There’s a 7-11 across the street, a CVS down the road and a couple of restaurants nearby. Neighborhood is safe, but not much to see other than chain hotels/motels.
If I was just passing through, this hotel would be fine for that. If I wanted to spend more time in Monterey, I’d definitely look for something else.More
