Looks cheerful outside with the red doors but a bit dated inside and the walks are pretty thin Adequate but a bit overpriced, it was the Monterey Jazz festival at the time so rooms in the area were scarce Lovely fresh muffins, cereal, orange and coffee available for breakfast

Motel style inn, big room for 5 of us but quite dated decor. Pretty pricey for what you get - very basic breakfast, shabby interior, but we struggled to find much availability on-line and all expensive in Monterey. Plenty of motel options on Fremont Blvd so might be worth looking around.

Check in was pleasant and efficient. Room had strong deodorizer smell which aggravated my wife's asthma. There were mold spots on shower curtain. It was very pricey for what was it was, but that's the area in general. There was supposed to be some breakfast things in lobby in morning (muffins and such I assume) but we left at 8ish... More

We would not recommend staying at this hotel. The sink tap was not working and did not have any water, fridge was off, wifi connection was very poor, there was mould on the shower curtain & did not feel welcome when we checked in. Although this is considered a budget hotel within Monterey, it certainly wasn't worth the money and... More

We stayed here as it was a convenient place to stop on the way down the coast and it was cheaper option than Monterey or Carmel. The room was big and reasonably comfortable. The outside area was very pleasant with colourful flowers. A basic breakfast so typical of American motels was provided.

Not able to check in until midnight due to flight delays. Front desk person would not allow me in the office because they close at 10pm. I had to stand outside in the cold filling out paper work. I think if you can afford the $150.00 room I think you are a safe person & should be allowed in the... More

This is the worst Inn I ever stayed. Wife doesn't want 1 hour drive back home, but wants to stay in seaside for the weekend. When we checked in or go to get free breakfast (some brownie, coffee, no fruits), the guy at frontdesk behaved like my customer. Over the night, the air condition is very noisy. The aged refrigerator... More

It's not the fanciest place but towels and bed are clean enough for an overnight stay. Walking distance to grocery store and pharmacy. I like that the restaurants around the area are good. I would recommend this place to anyone. I will come back here again.

We stayed one night after driving up the Big Slur from Morro Bay. We drove to San Francisco the next day, which is about 3 hours away. The room was large, and appeared clean. The bathroom was not so good, it was the only place we stayed in that did not have a plug for the bath. This annoyed by... More

I have three basic rules for a hotel: clean, safe, value. This hotel meets all the requirements. It isn't located in the tourist area but it is very convenient and easy to find. Our bed was quite comfortable and in fact the pillows were the best we had on our trip. This is an old hotel and there still is... More
