Hotels in Monterey are expensive in the summer, so I was pleased to find a reasonably priced alternative.
If you're looking for luxury, then this isn't the place. The rooms are fine - and do have air con. The bathrooms are a little dated. But it was clean. Fine for a night or two but might pall for any longer.
But the location is great. Walking distance to Monterey's best restaurants, and a free trolley car nearby gets you quickly to the aquarium and Cannery Row.
The staff were also friendly and helpful, and the free breakfast was fine - the waffle machine adding to the fun.
As other reviews point out, it is next to a gas station, but that didn't disturb us to be honest, although we were waking up on a Sunday morning when it might have been quieter.
But for affordability and location, I'd certainly use the hotel again.
