“really not a nice place to stay”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

we went there for only one night and it was really disappointing!
The room is poorly soundproofed, it had a smell of wet linen so very bad. However, the room was clean and the shower is good but you don't have any shampoo or soap. There is a laundry which is great. The room is really overprice for what it is! We payed 120$ and you have to pay 3$ more for the wireless! And you have to drive 15min to be in monterey, so in comparison of other motel, the price is really abused!

What a bummer. I wasn't planing on staying long so I went cheap and I thought I could count on the Motel 6 Brand. No Shampoo ect. One Bar of soap. Awful (Really Really BAD pillows.) No alarm clock. 25in TV. The price was not cheap. We paid $120. The service wasn't helpful. our room wasn't available

except for sympathy and kindness of the ladies at the reception how can I suggest a motel with dirty sheets with holes , with no stairs and no elevators (heavy luggages do not fly) and noisy? I really no recommend it after a long drive

This motel 6 is located near the beach, a short distance to conveniences like drug & grocery stores. Shared property with Denny's. The hotel style is not classic, the grounds were great - big courtyard with trees & flowers. Rooms were clean. Traveling with our Scotties - they enjoyed the grounds and the day trips to the beach. Recommend Phil's fish market for dinner in moss landing. And Tito's for breakfast or lunch. I would return.

Not all rooms have all of the amenities, so be aware. I had no microwave or fridge in my room, but I also had no alarm clock or hair dryer. It was a room with a bed and a bathroom and tv. That was it. I wasn't expecting it to be as nice as Holiday Inn or Comfort Inn, but I thought it would have a few more amenities as it was advertised. The room was clean, but the linens on the bed looked old and very worn and didn't smell great. I was on the back side of the hotel and had a great view of 7-11 and WalMart. Don't be fooled into thinking you're getting a great deal by the beach---it's actually across the highway from Marina State Beach. Looks pretty from the outside, but disappointing on the inside.

We ran the Big Sur Marathon and stayed here for one night. The receptionist, Ronell, was very helpful. We got clean room, no smell or anything. A typical motel room, basic amenities. One thing I couldn't bear was how thin the walls were. I heard everyone walked by and even when they flushed the toilet or turned on the facet. It was difficult to sleep when you have a race the following day. However, my friend didn't have any of these problems.

Bottom line, you get what you paid for and if you are on a budget, this would be an OK motel. The receptionist definitely made the difference. If I were to come back next year to run, I would pay a little bit more to stay in Monterey.

The Marina Motel 6 has a friendly, helpful staff and modest price for a high priced location. It is about 10 miles from Monterey and a little farther to Carmel. Rooms have exterior entrances, microwave and small fridge. We stayed in a 2nd story, end room and it was large and had a nice tree view. The carpets could use cleaning but otherwise the room was reasonably clean. There was no swimiing pool or hot tub. There was no dog area on-site but the area seemed safe enough for dog walking at night. Marina State beach and a nice park, where you can walk a dog, are near the property. There are few restaurants in Marina but many inexpensive restaurants in adjacent Seaside.
