“Great location for a good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2011

This hotel is located next to the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail which is great for walking/bike riding. It is a short walk to Cannery Row and the Monterey Aquarium in one direction and to the Fisherman's Wharf in the other direction. I walked every day. Our room was a good size, had a fireplace, microwave and refrigerator, desk and chair, and other chair. Free WIFI was included in the price. The breakfast consisted of waffles, 3 kinds of cereal, pastries, muffins, bread and a toaster, and three kinds of fresh fruit (pineapple, watermelon, and cantaloupe), as well as milk and 2 kinds of juice. There is a patio off of the office which is nice for eating breakfast. The parking is free. The parking lot is a little close if you are parking a large vehicle but you will spend most of your time on foot, so you can park it and leave it. The hotel is older and consequently, the shower head and toilet are kind of low - especially for my husband who is well over 6 feet tall. However, these were minor inconveniences. This is the second time we have stayed here and we will stay here again the next time we are in Monterey. I think it is a good value for the price.

Room Tip: We had a room on the Foam Street side this time and on the trail side last time. Neither were exces...

Great location an easy walk from Cannery Row and Old Fisherman's Wharf. Rooms are fine if in need of a little touch-up. Good beds. Microwave and refrigerator in each room, plus a gas fireplace. Can be a little noisy with either trail noise or street noise depending on which side of the hotel you're on. A good home base if you plan to spend most of your day out exploring Monterey.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the courtyard, as you have no privacy if you open your sliding glass door to cool off...

Very noisy -- can hear cars roaring past at night; room faced Foam St. Will not stay here in the future. Room was nice and spacious; bed -- very comfortable. TV remote did not turn on the TV or control the volume -- only good for changing channels. Bathroom needs work -- a coat of paint; many spots patched and not painted, cabinet doors -- finish completely off! Also, water had an odor -- pipes are old. Bathroom only had 1 yellow light bulb -- could not see to put on makeup! Next morning, they replaced 2 of the 3 burned out light bulbs.
Cleaning and gardening staff -- very friendly and helpful. Breakfast adequate: yogurt or eggs -- coffee, tea, juice, milk, toast, cereal, muffins, fruit, and waffles (frozen and heated in the back?). Better and more nutritious if protein was provided -- yogurt or eggs. Nice courtyard -- sitting and eating in the fog was quite chilly in the a.m. Heaters in place -- not turned on!

This is your classic built in the early '80's in need of renovation of motel.

Pros: The property is well located and withing walking distance to many of the sights and locations you want to visit in Monterey. The rooms are unexceptional but functional. The beds themself were very comfortable and I slept well each night.

Cons: The property is in desperate need of some TLC. The carpet in the hallways and the check in desk are worn out and need to be upgraded. The staff was able to attend to my needs, but were not particularly gracious or pleasant. The towels they provided were not as nice as I would have liked (older and low quality).

As I stayed over a holiday weekend it is hard for me to tell how reasonable the price was but it seemed cheaper than many of the other options I looked at (and this is one of the cases where you get what you pay for).

Would I stay here again? Yes, but it wouldn't be my first choice. Probably more as a back up option in the event I couldn't find something more welcoming.

Was a little worried seeing 1 persons review from a year ago regarding bed bugs but when I entered the room I pulled apart the bed and sheets and found no signs. Front desk staff was pleasnt, excellent location. The fireplace in the room was nice. It is a budget motel and it shows in little things like old carpet, but is clean.

Service with a smile isn't offered here! Other reviewers complained of poor service from the front desk....we got it also. A smile from anyone at the front desk would improve the rating of this hotel. There is a lack of friendliness, desire to make their guest feel appreciated, and lack of local knowledge of the general area. Next time we will stay at another place that at least will TRY to make us feel welcome. Will not recommend this place until other travelers post improvement in front desk services.

Read the mixed reviews before booking this but needed somewhere between the whale watching and the aquarium – this place fitted the bill and wasn’t too expensive.
As the corridors are open to the elements and there is a regular fog coming off the sea, the carpets and, to some extent, the rooms smell a bit musty. The room was spotlessly clean though and the bed very comfy. Complimentary continental breakfast was excellent – a lot better than just a coffee and muffin. If you want somewhere close to the sea without paying over the odds, I’d recommend here.
