okay hotel...

Posted 10-Jun-2014
Pros: the cost was inexpensive and was near to Monterey.
Cons: Improve their door and window security. Doors and windows seemed too easy to break into.
the hotel was overall clean but not very secured.

Overpriced and disappointing

Posted 02-Jun-2014
Cons: Please don't give false impression that they will offer a "light breakfast." Better not to offer anything. Only staff we met wasn't professional.
Location: About 1 hr drive to big sur. Questionable location.
We paid the price of not making an early reservation for our memorial weekend stay at the Big Sur area. By the time we booked this, there were not many options left and they were all overpriced. I know this is my fault!!! This hotel is within reasonable distance of big sur if you don't have a better option. The location was questionable; I don't think we were in a safe area. We arrived there late (around 10:30 PM) and there were no parking spots available for us to use. When we inquired about that, the staff member came out to check and acted surprised…. the one option left was to park on the street…..in that scary-looking neighborhood!!!! Luckily, a guest drove out as we were walking towards our room and we took their parking space… sorry!! Maybe it didn't even make a difference any way! The rooms were non-smoking, but the cigarets' odor gives you a slap in the face as soon as you open the door. The room was spacious, but the furniture was very basic: no drawers for your clothes. Only a very small, old-looking armoire for us to hang clothes, also without drawers. TV had very poor reception and it's remote did not work at all (not that it matter much for us anyway). Their complementary "light breakfast" was a joke: fake orange juice and pre-packed pasties. No coffee, not even a banana. After paying close to 250/night after fees & taxes, I would expect they could afford to buy some bananas or cheap apples. Will never stay here again. Avoid this hotel if you can!!

Cheap

Posted 29-May-2014
The motel is fine. It is cheap and the bed was relatively clean. But there was a weird smell all over the place! There was a morning breakfast, but it is really basic; orange juice and a little snack.. No coffee -_- It is good if you are on a tight budget & want to rest for a night.

Didn't even stay and use the room- we left and found another hotel - the hotel smelled badly- it was uninviting.

Very clean and close to everything.

Posted 05-May-2014
Pros: Price and cleanliness.
Cons: Better towels.
Location: Just outside Monterey but close to the bay. For the price, it was wonderful.
Very basic hotel but great deal on pricing. I would stay there again and recommend it for the budget traveler. It was very clean but the towels were a little too thin for good usage. Restaurants, drug store and other places to shop were within walking distance.

Extremely rude front desk!

Posted 07-Apr-2014
I advised the hotel I'd be checking in about 4AM prior to booking. They said it was okay and that they'd extend my check out time because I was checking in so late. I arrived around 4AM due to an extensive drive from Southern California, and I rang the bell for about 15 minutes. The owner it seemed like woke up after 20 minutes of me standing outside and was very rude to me. It's not my fault you work here. I asked about the late check out and said nobody said that & that check out is always 11am. I proceed to tell him "I understand that check out is at 11am. You should just correct your staff as far as giving false information." He continued to be extremely rude. He definitely made me never want to go back to that hotel. Thankful I only had to stay one night.

Nice hotel.

Posted 31-Mar-2014
Pros: I like the set up of the room. It had everything I needed.
Location: Monterey Bay Aquarium
Was happy before i was checking in, the man checking the people in explained about the pastries and orange juice for the morning, gave him coupons to eat if they didn't get full and gave him the WiFi password.. But when it was my turn he didn't explain anything to me, didn't give me WiFi password. In the night there was drunk people next door that made a lot of noise all night long. When i tried to call, the phone didn't work and it was raining so I couldn't complain. Probably wont stay again.

Close to beach and wharf

Posted 26-Jan-2014
I am glad that I stayed here :) it was pretty close to the wharf,aquarium, beaches, as well as places to eat. The hotel staff was very friendly, although I only interacted with them checking in and out. The room was pretty clean and cozy. I definitely would stay here again!

Clean hotel in Monterrey, California

Posted 14-Oct-2013
Pros: It was one of the few hotels available on a weekend in Monterrey, CA
Cons: Breakfast was non-existent. It was a carb laden waste of time. See attached picture of continental breakfast.
Hotel was located close to things to do in Monterrey, CA.
