Monterey Inn


`1800's Historical Hotel, one of Los Angeles Last Bordellos, 3 blocks from the ocean, Industrial/Commercial (beautiful dock) peaceful, 10- 15 minutes from the beaches in both directions. Good ocean air, we are on a vaccum belt the air is pretty much from the ocean, sometimes from the city, we are 10 degrees cooler then downtown los angeles, and Hollywood only because of the ocean, and us being on it. (closes beaches cabrillo beach/point fermin north/ south Long beach pike/ or North Shore/Seal Beach. Park with view area walking distance good for bicycling, skateboarding, meditating, sunning, skating. The Ext, is 1800's simple, the lobby looks 1800 and simple, (Friday, Sat, Sunday) Continental Breakfast, but remember the prices are fantastic so you have money for breakfast at Trumps. The history is vast, this hotel was establish predating the oil rush in los angeles and water surrounded this very hotel, so that when you enter it's different to find that you would be standing years ago in water, they have photos to prove it... Bordello, nope don't worry the beds are from 4 and 5 star hotels, their not from the 1800 the room decor is modern much like the everyday hotel simple nice and clean, we are allergy friendly and a green hotel and received awards, special amenitieskitchenettes, refrigerator, stove, some with microwaves, sinks, private bath,120 movie channelsfuture bicycle rental, and scooter, or segway, and paddle boats, kayaks, etc, and the reopening of the restaurant which is under renovationNoted Tourist attractionsThe Port of Los AngelesThe bridgeBanning LandingBanning Museum The Fort (civil war museum)San PedroPort of CallLong BeachQueen MaryLast place Dan Aligator man visitedOil RefineriesThe location of Barbwire, walking distanceLocation Man apart across the streetDonald Trumps Golf course 15 approx minutesgolf course 5 to 10

We can live with some inconveniences, so for us this place was ok, still I recommend you to choose a different hotel if you do not like noise , etc. If you are not lucky you will get a room in the basement so watch out. It is in a rather ugly and industrial district.

"Don't stay in this place. Find a better one!"
