“A Good Deal”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

Was the cheapest hotel in the area within closest proximity to the beach. Well maintained grounds, decently nice staff, and clean rooms make it well worth the price. Only complaint would be no tissues in the room, also there are not fridges and microwaves in every room (just some). People who complain have forgotten how much they paid-- you get what you pay for. Happy I stayed here!

Who'd know that the weekend that I wanted to go to Monterey would be the yearly car show in
Monterey. So...naturally, every hotel/motel has jacked up the rates for this particular weekend.
Remember this folks, August 14,15 thru Sunday the 18th this weekend every year. So I guess when I'm paying $120 a night at a motel 6, I going to be kinda picky. Two adults in a room should
give 2 bathroom towels. But immediately, I called room service. An additional towel pretty quickly.
The next day same thing, only 1 towel. This time after visiting the front desk, they had to call an
additional person to get us the towel. Mediocre airplane coffee in the lobby in the AM.
Oddly though, I'd consider it again, as I did like the location, ie right on the coast. 10 minutes
drive into Monterey.

Room Tip: We had a queen bed for 2 people, yet I tried to get 2 doubles. The front office told us that there...

Having stayed at a number of hotels/motels during our 3 week trip of the West Coast this was the most disappointing.

It was what it was, a box with a bed!!! although it was on route, for the price we paid it was over priced compared to many of the other places we had stayed such as RedRoof and Travelodge. As for toiletries I hardly think a small bar of soap equates to toiletries. There were no facilities at all, coffee maker, iron, hair dryer, fridge nothing! Not sure about being pet friendly either nothing against pets but surely not very hygienic having pets sleeping in your bedroom ?

The quilts on the beds are not very inviting and very dated ours and the couple we were travelling with had cigarette burn holes in them.

Have to say this does not reflect on the staff the lady who checked us in was great, she was friendly and very helpful.

Would not stay here again.

Room Tip: You get what you pay for so pay a little extra.

Different layout then most motel 6' open air feel instead of box with halls. Some park in front of rooms, typical motel 6 aminities, none, but fills the need. Friendly front desk and clean rooms. Denny's restaurant onsite was nice. Price was OK compared to other hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for room you can park in front of.

Well 2 weeks lead and a party unwilling to spend more than $200 a night, resulted in us booking this hotel for a family aquarium trip. Could have been worse at $140 it was deficient in most every way. Check-in was hap hazard and felt like a McDonald's transaction. The exterior was pleasant but poorly designed, stairs on either end not in the middle,room in the middle. Room was small for family of four, 3 towels, old worn beds with hard edges. Room was dirty, sheets thin, tv was old tube deal. Was on par with other hotel 6 offerings. But this was a disappointment for the price, market, setting. A remodel, replacing all fixtures, and furniture, is in order, a newer tv nice but whatever.

I will say up front that we did not actually stay here. We checked in but after looking at two rooms, asked for a refund and went elsewhere. The big street sign advertises ALL NEW ROOMS! so we thought it might be worth a try. Both rooms we looked at were shabby. The beds had "body dips" and must have been well used. Not a nice smell. No problem getting our refund, but the office staff were evasive and untruthful when we asked about the "all new rooms". Lots of excuses about ongoing renovations. We went to the Quality Inn down the road and got a nice clean room, only $10 more than Motel 6 were charging.

The hotel is in a good location. Right next to a Denny's and a block away from a Walmart. Typical motel 6 room very plain, But clean Bed was comfortable, One thing that drive me crazy about motel 6 is the noise of other guest. Smoking outside running down the halls etc... That is not the hotel fault. Staff was friendly.
