It doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't - it's clean, well-maintained, and conveniently located. It is reasonably priced. There were young families on vacation from Europe and retirees there for weddings and a youth group there for a work project during my stay. In short, the people there all felt safe and at home. If you're looking for an exquisite room, look down the road to cannery row, and pay triple the cost. Or save your money, enjoy a nice meal in the area, and leave a decent tip for the help.
The information on Expedia about the hotel was incorrect. The Expedia website stated that they had rollaway beds available. They did not offer that service at all. Ny daughter ended up sleeping on the couch cushions on the floor.
Right off Highway 1, so there was some traffic noise -- ear plugs took care of that! I was visiting relatives on the Peninsula, some in Seaside, Monterey, and Pacific Grove -- none more than a 15-minute drive away. We primarily used the room for watching a little TV (Comcast Cable) before sleeping. I will definitely try to book this hotel again for future visits to this area.
The staff are friendly and helpful. The motel is inexpensive compared to other similar "motels" versus "hotels" in Seaside/Monterey/Sand City/Marina area. The motel is very conveniently located to restaurants, shops and nearby stores. The exterior building needs to be painted and cleaned up. Interior rooms have newly remodeled bathrooms and are clean. The motel is old and the rooms are small, not much that the owners can do about that. The walls are thin so it isn't the most quiet - try to get a room at the back where there is less traffic noise. Everything inside the room is decent for the price. The room comes with a mini fridge and a microwave, which is a nice thing to have. Television in the room is small. I would stay here again if money was tight, and I was just looking for a place to sleep before heading out for a day on the coast. It felt safe and met the need for a place to sleep for a night when traving through Monterey.
Nice little hotel. Flowers outside make for a warm welcome. Room was spacious. Looked like it had just been remodeled. Bed was OK. No WiFi, microwave or coffee maker in the room. Left really early so can't comment on breakfast but looked like it was small. Lots of restaurants and fast food places around. I will put this place on my list of potential overnight stays...
It was OK. Nice receptionist. Very Close To Monterey Bay Aquarium and the tourist sites.
Make sure you get the WiFi Code! We got back very late and no one answered the phone.
I recommend this place if you are looking to just crash for the night.
This Seaside hotel is just over three miles from Fisherman's Wharf and downtown Monterey, and four miles from Cannery …More
