I enjoyed a very comfortable stay in an upstairs king room with a peek of ocean in the distance. The bed was especially comfortable with 300 thread count sheets, and the front desk manager graciously helped me look for a lost item. It was also a very good value. I'll be back!

This hotel is only average. It has a run-down look and can best be described as functional. The locations is o.k. , on a street near downtown Monterey. There are restaurants within walking distance but better to go by car. Aquarium is a few miles away. The walls are paper thin. We heard the toilet flushing in the next room....

Very comfortable, well appointed accommodation near the main action of Monterey. Good quality bed and bathroom plus a fridge and microwave to give you options with your stay here. Quiet and with the park opposite as a bonus.

Clean and cheery room with sink area separated from toilet/shower area. All the basics provided. Friendly staff. Breakfast was not provided but that's okay - we planned to eat at Rosine's anyway. Comfortable nights sleep with fluffy pillows.

We were only in Monterey for one night so we were only looking for a place to sleep. The price reflected the location. It was a short drive to shops and restaurants. Because the price was low for the area, we knew what to expect. The room was small but clean. It is a motel so our car was right...

We had called prior to booking to ask if there was a deep tub and were told yes. However, the tub is smaller than most in home tubs. Plus, the stopper did not work so the tub could not even be filled. Water pressure on the shower was a joke. "Luxury toiletries " were 2 very tiny bottles, 1 shampoo/conditioner...

We are sorry for the inconvenience you faced . The tubs are standard tubs and because of the city regulations about water usage the stoppers have been taken out . All the amenities are standard in the room and if you had asked the front desk they would gladly provide more . We do have ample parking . We do...

(+) Nice cozy hotel. I have nothing to compare with - I've never stayed in "Inn", the motel type of the hotel, but I supposed it would much worse. The room was really big, had a wardrobe, big TV, table (but no chair), free toiletries, clean and good shower, powerful conditioner, huge comfortable bed. (-) The booking confirmation said that...

The room was ok but car park is outside the door and we could hear people upstairs through the ceiling. My biggest gripe was they added a $10 service charge as well as tax, making the room not great value. It's quite a long walk to town so not a great location unless Yu want to drive. The fridge was...

Sorry for the inconvenience but the parking is set like that and we do not advertise as downtown property . Cannot avoid tax and service charge too .

nothing great about this hotel it was a bit dingy and could use an update, but it was clean, and breakfast was provided in the low price, given the chance again I would have paid more to stay somewhere a bit nicer.
