    It was a little noisy as the hotel is close to the fairgrounds and I think there was an event there. Also sound transfers between rooms and my neighbors had kids but they quoted down by 10;00pm

    4/5 Good

    I did not like the noise coming from upstairs and also we can hear the people from next room.The bed has no top sheet, only comforter. I want to have a top sheet aside from having a comforter on bed so when I have to reduce covers in the middle of the night, I can just pull the top sheet and remove the comforter, but they did not put a top sheet. But overall, the place is clean, and bed is comfortable.The manager was very accommodating and kind. I would recommend to stay in this motel. It is a short drive to the Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row. There's a bus across the street that will drop off passengers a block away from Monterey Bay Aquarium. The bus ride takes only 10-15 minutes.
