Staff was rude. Walls were dirty. No ac and the fans they had in the room looked like they had never been wiped down.

Good location, Good Amenities

Posted 25-Sep-2014
Pros: Convenient, Affordable, Amenities, Good location
Cons: Furniture was damaged (wood chips) and the doors were somewhat hard to close
Location: Monterey Bay Aquarium and Lover's Point Park / Beach Cannery Row KAI LEE ICE CREAM!
This place was a nice 20 minute walk from the Monterey Bay Aquarium - and it was a great walk. No stop signs or anything like that because it was a nice recreational trail. There was a free continental breakfast which was pretty good for an inn of this size. The room was clean and the bed was quite comfortable, but if you're looking for luxury you might want another place. The place is a bit run down in terms of furniture and the room is small. But the staff was great and friendly, and the price was affordable. I did like that the room had a refrigerator and microwave! We had to use it for some restaurant leftovers. Even though my room was a first floor room, I was able to see the ocean from the room and it was a 30 second walk to the beach (maybe even less!) Very enjoyable overall.

Nice hotel and close to the ocean

Posted 21-Sep-2014
The room we stayed in was nice and clean... it's just that there were no AC and just a fan. Good thing it wasn't hot when we were there, since it gets a sea breeze.

Right across from the water. Can't beat it for the price.

Very convenient location

I stayed at this hotel due to its proximity to a triathlon I was competing in. It was in the perfect location. Rooms are small but because you are across the street from the beach I think the size of the room didn't matter.

perfect location

Posted 16-Sep-2014
Pros: location
Cons: quieter
Location: very close to the beach, kayaks and BBQs
You cannot beat this place for location. That alone is worth any minor faults. You are literally across the road from the ocean. Only the 3rd floor can see the ocean due to Borg's Motel, but I wouldn't bother paying the extra as the view isn't great. Much better to cross the road and sit in the park area or on the beach or even the patio area of the Motel where you have breakfast. Kyaks on the beach are a flat rate of $30 for the day, even if you only have it an hour or hire in the afternoon. The ocean is a lot calmer in the morning so best to go then. We were in room 114, second from the end. This was much quieter than being near the elevators (room 105 ) or reception (room 101) but has the disadvantage of having the ashtray outside. Not many people used it but the bathroom extractor did bring in cigarette smoke if smokers were outside. Do check for damage and report it else you will be charged. We found a dent in the bathroom door they didn't know about. The bath didn't have a plug so I had to use the old trick of damp tissue for a plug. The microwave was a low power so took a while, but functioned. The fridge was noisy at night. I couldn't get the heating/aircon to work but extra blankets were sufficient in September. The bed was extremely comfy, soft top but firm enough not to bounce when your partner turns over :) Breakfast was nice, yogurts, bagels, muffins, toast, cereal, eggs and sitting on the patio was nice.

Haunted Honeymoon

Posted 12-Sep-2014
Can't get a much more romantic sounding hotel to spend the first night of a honeymoon on the coast, right? The name was about the only positive, aside from the friendly staff and great location. Tiny rooms, old, dingy, carpet very stained, toilet handle broken and toilet leaking. Bathroom fan sounded like a Harley. I'm pretty easy to please but I wouldn't even think of staying here again.

This is what happens when...

Posted 07-Sep-2014
Pros: Hotel staff was very pleasant and the location to the beach was great
Cons: FIX THE ELEVATOR!!!
Location: all of the touristy locations are very close
Got last room available in hotel (Room 105). This room had the elevator, ice machine, and smoking station right outside of the room. Ice machine noise was terrible, but nothing compared to the racket that the elevator made. Every time the elevator doors opened and closed our room shook like an earthquake. The bed was hard and the pillows provided no support. The hotel may be better, but we had the room from Hell.
