We stayed here for 1 night while exploring the Monterey area and Aquarium during a business trip. Hotel prices are high now during July in Monterey and we were not planing on spending much time in the room.
The hotel is in a good central location of downtown Monterey. The hotel looks fairly ugly from the outside right behind a gas station but we had a good nights sleep in our room there and a decent little breakfast. The rooms where as nice and modern as a Travelodge type budget hotel probably can be. Small room and bathroom but efficient. The bed was a big surprise. Very comfortable and good quality mattress and pillows. We stayed at a Marriott property the next night and the beds were actually comparable. If you are looking for an affordable room in Monterey and will not spend much time at the hotel this is a good choice. Very friendly service at the front desk by the owner. Staying here allowed us splurging on lunch at the Inn at Spanish Bay/ Pebble Beach and a good upscale seafood dinner at Schooner inside the Monterey Plaza Hotel. The only negative was that when we got back to the hotel after dinner there was not one parking spot in the underground parking lot or hotel parking lot. We had to find parking on a side street away from the hotel. This was annoying since free parking was part of the hotel offerings we liked when we decided on this hotel.
