I don't know where the other reviewers normally stay, but for the price, this is on par with what you would get anywhere. The room was clean. The interior was dated and the bed was not the best, however, definitely sleepable. The water pressure was okay and I really had no issues. As long as you don't expect luxury then...

This motel offers little more than a bed and shower. The room looks cheap and stale. The bed and sheets are old, but clean. The breakfast offered is dry flakes, coffee and juice. I will not stay here again, there are better with similar price in the area.

All the other reviews you've read are true. This place is awful. Dirty (as in large empty bottle on the floor in plain sight, no cups even though there is a coffee maker, graffiti on bathroom wall, tiles missing in the bathroom). I covered up head to toe to sleep and put a sweater over the pillow to keep from...

I should have read the reviews. My fault for not . Please don't make my mistake. Dirty room, stained and dirty floor and chairs. No w-fi connection and no AC. I don't mean the AC didn't work. There was no AC unit in the room. The clerk did try to get the wi fi working so I will give him...

Paint is chipping in bathroom..that can result to lead poisoning. Shower head looks like its clamped on and sounds like your starting a car when you start the water. You literally feel like your sleeping in the middle of the parking lot with all the noise around. I used my own pillow and blanket. Was afraid of the there sheets....

One star for this deplorable motel dump is still giving too much credit. We literally thought we had stepped into a third world country. It is beyond me how such a place can even exist in such a beautiful place as Monterey. And the nerve in trying to charge us for $149 a night! When we pulled up to the...

This place is dirty, no filthy, and the entire property is littered with garbage and cigarette butts. I was there when The Monterey County Health Dept.had red tagged the pool, locked it with their pad lock and had put a big warning sign on the entrance to the pool and jaccuzzi. The carpets are so dirty that your white socks...

Wow.... What a terrible place to stay. The location was well centered for the weeks events. However, it was shabby and nasty. I shortened my stay by one day. I hope they spend at least some of the 1322.00 I spent for the four nights, on some improvements....

Our experience was terrible because of the physical condition of the facility. Room was relatively clean but had wires from a disconnected smoke alarm on the ceiling although a replacement was on the wall. Chair in room was stained and dirty. The furniture was old and chipped. Shower was stained. Had to pay 25 cents in ice machine. Pool was...

“Not sure about other rooms, but our room was nasty, smelled, ceiling repaired with duct tape, flat pillows, etc. The only positive comment I can make is that it was quiet since we arrived after midnight so other patrons were probably asleep. I would not allow my dogs to stay here!!”
