We checked in at this motel at 7 pm on Sunday. The owner did not share the common customer courtesy. He was rude. If our credit card had not already been charged, we would not stay in this motel that night because there are over a dozen motels close by and this is a non-holiday and non-seasonable weekend. The room has a reasonable size but it was filthy with some smell of urine. We called the front desk to request a room change but the owner refused to do so. After we warned him that we would complain directly to the Super 8, the owner finally gave us another room. The breakfast was bad and the dinning area has only two tables with four chairs all together. Like us, many other guests had no choice but to skip the breakfast though it is free. Overall, staying in this motel is a terrible experience. We definitely will never stay in this motel again!!

We come to Monterey about every 3 months and have tried many different motels in the city. Super 8 was indeed above average for the below $90 price. There was ample parking, the room was clean and smelled fresh. Lots of closet space, floor length mirrors, ref and microwave, and a spacious enough bathroom. Only con was a lack of iron/ironing board. We'll be staying here again.

Read about this Motel in Trip Advisor and found it to be a good value with a convenient location. The room had two beds and was clean - located on the end of the property. Well maintained for a Super 8 with some years on it - liked the 2 sinks and the large bathroom.
The breakfast was adequate - mostly english muffins and such.
The breakfast area is in the lobby and is very small - you will probably have to take your breakfast to your room.
The manager, Mike, was friendly and helpful.
Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to other value seekers!

Booked for one night but ended up staying for three and actually wished we had stayed two more nights instead of proceeding on to San Francisco. Central to all touring and close to del monte shopping centre with super meals available in the evening. Very friendly and attentive manager and room was cleaned and freshened every day. We stayed in a suite with two king size beds and it was the best value for money of our two week tour.

To me this was an ok motel but nothing spectacular about it. The price was rather high (some 110 USD) and we had just came from San Francisco where we had a suberb hotel with about the same price so you can imagine I felt a little ripped off with this price for a super 8... However, it did seem that the prices were rather high in Monterey for all of the hotels/motels. Still, I do think that price-quality ratio was a little off for this motel, at least for the price we paid.

We got upgraded to a "suite" which was nice but the suite really was just a bigger room. I have no complaints about cleaness of the room so this is a good place to stop and spend the night. We did not try the pool but it looked ok. The breakfast was not that huge of a breakfast but it was something.

This is a typical no-frills motel with clean and spacious rooms.

We stayed there 3 nights and there wasn't any problems. Check in was ok, always enough space on the parking lot and a free, but very basic breakfast served at the motel office (but whole foods, pharmacy and other shops 5 minutes to walk).

Located on a main road, but no noise problems. Easy access to all monterey area attractions, but you need a car to get downtown or you have to walk about 40 minutes.

Quite clean room (with a new carpet), tv and a small fridge. Nothing special, but did the job.

Would stay there again.
