My boyfriend and I wanted an affordable hotel in a safe location that was close to Monterey for a weekend getaway. This hotel was a piece of cake to get to from Highway 1 and we were pleased to see a Target a block away. I forgot a few things at home in my late night packing so it was quite convenient. We spent most of our time at Fisherman's Wharf & Cannery Row and it was a 10 minute drive from the hotel on side streets. The hotel was clean, although it smelled a little musty so we kept the window open at night. Parking was easy and free, the staff were pleasant and it was a great hotel if you're on a budget. There were quite a few electrical outlets that are easy to access, which is convenient for cameras/cell phones/etc. I hate when hotels only have one or two and they're hidden behind the bed or dresser. There's also a free breakfast, which we took advantage of both days. There was a waffle maker (yay!), juices, danishes, toast and cereal. Nothing fancy but a nice amenity, plus it saves money! The hotel also had a laundry room, which I really liked although I did not use it. Overall, great affordable hotel that is easily accessible from the highway and a quick drive to the Monterey sights.

Room was clean, as was the bathroom, with more than ample towels and washcloths. No stale ordors whatsoever; large wall-mounted TV, cable service, refrig, microwave also in the room. Have no difficulty at all accessing the internet. [The unfortunate problem was not with the motel, but the noisy people in the room above us. Due to a knee injury, required a room on the ground level.] Have stayed here several times in the past two years and will continue to stay here whenever we are in the area.

Room Tip: If you have a room on the second floor, be consider of the person in the room below you...don't walk as if you are wearing concrete boots.

Booked this for a short weekend getaway to the beach and were pleasantly surprised: checkin was very short. involving minimum exchange of words, creditcard, id, and room key, no upstairs available since fully booked. Room recently renovated with shiny laminate wood floor (no carpet - great!), tiles in bathroom, energy-efficient lighting throughout, fridge, microwave. Bed comfortable & clean. Table and 2 different chairs. Unique: additional small, openable window towards back of building for extra ventilation. Neighbor watched TV until 9pm but otherwise quiet with some road noise (thin walls). Breakfast area completely empty until ~8am, then too crowded after. Toast, orange juice, oats, danish, waffles. Not bad for ~50$ incl taxes - would probably stay here again for a night.

Room Tip: upstairs rooms may be slightly nicer, AAA rate

We stayed here one night to visit Point Lobos and Carmel next day. It was a clean motel with microwave and mini fridge. Very close to Monterey Fisherman's Wharf, less than 10 minutes drive.

We stayed overnight in seaside to avoid higher hotel rates in Monterey.....It was a clean,average motel room including frige &microwave. great for an overnight stay.
It was a block behind the main drag where most of the other motels were , so it was quiet.
They provided toast,juice, coffee , danish,&waffles in ther small lobby with a couple of
tables. We booked through the motel site with a AAA discount for $43,99 for a Sat. night.
No coffee pot in room. Very comfy beds.
Couldn't beat that price!!!! Would stay there again when passing through.
