Our stay was welcomed by a very friendly and cute puppy. This is a very clean and decent hotel for the price in Monterey. I would have given an excellent rating, but when we arrived after 3:30 pm, our room was not yet ready. We requested a room on lower floor for our elderly mother and we had to wait...

The location is along a road with many other nice enough motels. My impression is that this particular place is a dishonest tourist trap. Beware of what you are getting. Beyond having to pay $20 more than quoted, you will find one tiny bar of soap, nothing else. I could give more detail, but do yourself a favor and stay...

Very nice newly renovated neat and clean rooms. We gotta room with jacuzzi. Bedding was also very comfy. Hospitality of this motel 6 was very good. Front desk fellows were very friendly and they guided us which places should we visit near by. Location is really very good. All tourist places are just 5 minutes drive away.

We walked in without a reservation and were able to negotiate the price down a bit, to a bit over $80 total. The room was surprisingly clean and modern and the beds comfy. You might be able to get wifi codes for free if you ask. No toiletries, but that's ok. This was my first stay at a 6, and...

rather small place located a bit out of downtown Monterey. The walk down to fishermans wharf takes you about 20 minutes. Room was clean and spacious. The walls seem to be pretty thin - I could understand everything from the neighbours room.

I don't have any pictures form the room but it was amazingly clean and comfortable after hiking in Point Lobos all day. Service was easy and friendly! The price was unbeatable and we were close to fishermen's wharf where we ventured out for dinner. Will absolutely come stay here every time we visit :)
