“My little home away from home”
Reviewed June 28, 2008

Staying at Days Inn was an unforgettable experience for me. The rooms are sunny and very clean, everything that was supposed to be working ( like TV, for example ) did, the price was more than reasonable. And the location! I've walked to the Fisherman's Wharf, to the Monterey Museum of Art, to Alvarado Street and our " Ghost Tour ". There are Trader Joe's and Walgreens for those of us who always end up forgetting shampoo, for example, within walking distance as well. I'm not extremely picky about breakfast, so their Continental Breakfast was more than enough. And you got a free copy of USA TODAY. Overall, I wouldn't dream of staying anyplace else.

Stayed one night with grandkids and another family in two rooms. No ac so to keep cool needed to keep windows open to the auto court which let in noise from other guests and busy street . Non-smoking room but need to keep the windows open let smoke in from other guests smoking. Door had been recently reset and swings the wrong way for building and handicapped codes, so you walk into the chairs and have to swing it ALL the way open to come and go.

This place sucked for several reasons. Firstly, it's the local boozer hang-out. When we arrived, at 4 in the afternoon, there were several units with their doors open and people hanging around the hallways drinking. The first night actually wasn't too bad...the rooms have been renovated and are clean but the second night there was a virtual block party with about three or four rooms partying together.....and they didn't even arrive together. This went on until 3-4 in the morning. It's way over priced and really it's a Motel NOT a Hotel. I'd never stay here again.

Checked in around 9:00 pm. The stairs up to the second floor were uneven and unsafe in the dark, especially for small children or parents carrying luggage. The toilet was running when we entered the room. You could see light and hear street noise through the gap between the door and the jamb. The cover of the heating unit was broken and lying on the floor in pieces of sharp metal. There was a coffee maker, but no coffee pot. The hairdryer in the bathroom was broken, the on button was jammed. The toilet clogged and then overflowed the next morning, soaking the bathroom floor and carpet. Couldn't wait to wake up and get out of there.

  • Disliked — In desperate need of repair and maintenance.

We stayed for several nights and never again. We had a suite and when we started the water in the jacuzzi, it was brown.
The shower had mold in all of the corners.
The carpet was stained. Sheets were very clean but the bed was very uncomfortable.

Never again

I was actually wanting to stay at the other Days Inn just down the road, but was given this number instead. The staff was pleasent, but the room did look as if they attempted to modernize it on the cheap. The shower did not drain well, but we were only there to sleep. The main problem is the bed bug infestation. We stayed in Room 109. I woke up Sunday scratching a few spots, but it got worse as the day went on, and I ended up swelling up on my hands and legs and face . I know it is bed bugs because I where I was not covered by clothing (long sleeve t-shirt, socks and underwear I was bit numerous times.

My family traveled from Las Vegas to Monterey peninsula and were very tired , arrived around 5pm. The place had no elevators and had to bring the luggage up. The carpeting on 2nd floor was very dirty and stained. The room had a very old moldy smell when
we opened the door. It disappeared after we left the windows wide open for at least a couple of hours. The sheets were clean
and the bathroom was fairly clean. I guess this place to be quite old by the looks of it. There is an italian restaurant down the street that's quite good and a chinese restaurant (The Great Wall)
which also quite good. The Wharf itself is a good 15-20 minutes walk and you will need your car or SUV.. to travel to Pacific Grove for Cannery Row and the Aquarium. The 17 mile drive is okay and you had to pay. To see the ocean for free just drive around Monterey Bay via Asilomar Beach Park and Ocean Drive and it is free!!!!The view is gorgeous and you can walk right by the ocean and the rocks!!! Our night stay at the hotel was okay , you have to l
leave your windows open for ventilation and the fan was fairly noisy. Unfortunately, you can hear your neighbors and the outside
traffic and you can probably find a better hotel somewhere else.
