“Excellent value”
Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

We chose this hotel mainly on previous tripadvisor reviews. Hotels in this area are usually expensive, however this was excellent value for what we needed. Rooms were clean and quiet with a complimentary breakfast. Couldnt really ask for more, I would definately recommend this for a stay in Monterey

The thing that struck us about this hotel was the size of the rooms! They were massive. I think that stood out as we has stayed in quite small rooms in San Francisco the night before. Very nice and modern rooms and bathroom. The breakfast was a bit crowded which was actually in the reception area. It is a bit of a walk to the main centre from this hotel. About a 40 minute walk. Free wifi and Tea/ Coffee in rooms was appreciated.

For an extra $10, we got the suite with 2 King size beds. It was the most spacious motel room I have ever seen. The bathroom was even spacious, with 2 sinks. The staff was friendly and efficient and the room was clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast is served in the office, but we took ours to the pool side tables and had a nice time. The only downside was the pool, which was a bit too chilly for swimming.

I went for this on the basis of good reviews. What a mistake. The motel is way out of central Monterey. The management were unfriendly bordering on hostile when I tried to get a bigger room. Our room was minuscule, a tiny Queen room a third of the size of most standard motel rooms. The room coffee was miserable, breakfast in the reception was unhealthy, the fridge had to be switched off at night because of the noise volume. Good things: the hot water was very hot, the room was clean and there were flowers hung on the outside and it is very near a mall with a couple of restaurants and a Wholefoods warehouse

We had only a one night stop as we drove through on our way to San Francisco. A good value for money, decent size, and fair up to date rooms and clean. Very good standard for motel. Recommended for business or pleasure.

We had booked a trip to San Francisco for 9 days and were going to visit Monterey on the Saturday and Sunday in the first week in August. We had booked a room with Super 8 in Monterey at least six weeks prior to leaving for our vacation so we thought we were all set. Check in time was at 2:00 p.m. on the Saturday. At 11:00 a.m. in the morning, when we were just a half hour away from arriving at Monterey and dropping by Super 8, well before check in time, we received a call from our daughter in Toronto advising us that Super 8 had called us at home. A staff member from Super 8 was calling to say there was a problem with the credit card used for the room and if we did not contact them in 1/2 hour they would give away our room. We contacted them right away, well within the 1/2 hour time allotment he gave our daughter and to our shocking surprise, the person at Super 8 had already given away our room, even though our daughter explained that we were enroute to the hotel and could clarify the situation. They did not even give us any time to contact them!! It turns out the credit card used to book the room had to be replaced by the credit card company, it was not stolen. And, most hotels will ask you when you register which credit card you wish to put your bill on, and as we would have arrived well before check in time, this could have been rectified. Why did they bother calling to clarify the situation if they did not even give us the opportunity to call them back.Never, ever again would we even consider looking at a Super 8 hotel!!!!!!
