We booked the room easily through a phone call! The employees are really nice and friendly. Our room was big enough, very clean and new! Also the bathroom was pretty new! The bed is super comfortable and the parkinglot right next to the rooms and very bright at night! One of the best motels we have been so far!

We are passing through. We've driven 8000 km so far on this trip and stayed in plenty of places. (We left Montreal over two weeks ago). This motel has been one of the better ones. The room is smaller but has cathedral ceilings on the second floor. The bathroom is on the bigger side. Parking is easy and the yard... More

This hotel is near the road so it is nice if you are travelling and need a fast stay. The room is small but clean and organized. The bathroom is big and with necessary staff. The is no breakfast included but there is a cafeteria nearby.

For the price, we were hoping for a place that was a little bit cleaner. It was pretty dirty and grimy, showers looked like they needed some TLC. At least if it was cheaper it would have been more worth it for the night.

The floor had dirt and dust all over, and the sheets and towels had stains and hairs (I went out and bought a sheet at a nearby shipping center to sleep on, it was that bad). The toilet and bath tub were just disgusting, dirty all over. What made it even worse was the construction that started at 6 am.... More

We first had a very tiny bed room without AC. We ask for AC, and owner was very nice and gave us one bigger room with AC! The thing with this hotel is not about the service or the quality (even if you hear ALL the neighbors discussion, steps, tv program ...well...) It's the price !! 172 $ with tax... More

We stayed in the Western Motel for one night in June. We were travelling down from SF to LA on Highway 1. We chose Salinas, because there were not <$100 hotels available at the time in Monterey (spontaneous booking). The Western Motel was defintely the worst hotel/motel of our 3 week California trip -- both regarding price and value. Here... More

Our family of four, including two kids of the age of 3.5 and 5 years, was looking for some affordable accommodation in Monterey for a visit of the Monterey Bay aquarium, but had no luck finding anything in Montery. After some searching around we found this little motel, which had rooms with queen sized beds for around $70, which seemed... More

“Half of the rooms are facing the car park and the other half is towards some other houses. If this is important to you you should ask for a room either way. We had rooms facing away from the car park and that was fairly quite, definitely quite enough to leave the windows open, which we prefer over air conditioning.”
