Normally I drive to Monterey and back in the same day, as hotel prices are high for what you get, but had a late-night event. This was fine for my one-night stay. Room (#2) was clean, had comfortable bed, refrigerator, microwave, free wifi, although it was dark, which could get depressing with a longer stay. If they made the following...

Had booked for 4 nights, arrived & no one at reception, a phone on counter with message to ring for help. Grubby reception area - coffee machine to the side if you wanted a cup between hours of 7.30am - 9.00pm, no tea/coffee making machine in the room. The room was quite basic, minimal bathroom products, no wardrobe, only a...

Stayed here for a night, it's a no frills motel, you'll get a clean room with a refrigerator and a microwave. It's a convenient walk to downtown, the warfth and cannery row. If your looking for a decent place at a resonable price then this motel will be perfect.

Got this room last minute via Hotwire to come down a day earlier than planned for the ATT Pebble Beach Pro-Am. I think the only pleasant thing I can say is the location is convenient ... near Hwy 1 and Del Monte Center. The bed was clearly in need of replacement ... the floors are so gross ... cold ugly...

I booked my stay for August 2017 online. Received email confirmation of booking and then today 12/12/16 I receive email stating booking cancelled. I put this down to them charging me the wrong price and then realising. Very rude email when I questioned it telling me to find alternative accommodation. Avoid at all costs

Want a place too stay that was close to Laguna Seca. Right across from the Del Monte Sopping Center. And only a few mins from Livers point and Cannery Row. A bit older but very well taken care of and clean. Parking is very tight. But very quiet and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

We spent two nights in a room with a large king bed, TV, air conditioning and fridge. The bed was comfortable and the room had a nice warm and cosy feel about it. The bathroom layout was strange as the toilet and shower/bath were behind a door but the sink was in the bedroom. There was plenty of parking. The...

Arrived to find an empty office and a phone with a sign saying call for help. Sour-Faced man came to the desk and announced to me that he was fully booked for this evening. He was none too nice about it and I asked why several websites said there were 4-5 rooms still available. He said they were wrong. I...

Stayed here for one night. The hotel is quaint on the outside and very welcoming. The room we had was perfectly adequate, so I'm unsure about those claiming the rooms are too small. Like others have said I don't agree with the $10 service charge, but it is shown before you book so it's not secret. The room was spotlessly...
