I set reservations for what I thought was a lovely Inn, I wanted to try something different in Monterey and not stay in a major chain hotel. I arrived at the "Inn" and there was no parking and it was on a VERY busy street with cars zipping past me as I tried to find a place to stop and go and check into the property. I finally stopped in a parking lot next to the Inn and walked around to the front doors and opened them to a dark, dank lobby that hit you in the face like a bottle of clorox!! It looked NOTHING like the pics I had seen online.
I went to my room and opened the door and the door hit the bed. The room was so small that you couldnt walk into it...I had reserved a King bed two months ago and it had a double bed. It was a horrible room the size of my closet at home. It was filthy and dank. I went back down to the hotel manager and asked for the King bed I had reserved a few months ago and he told me I was too late checking in and they were all taken, it was 1:30pm and check in was 1pm.
I asked for my money back because I was going somewhere else and he told me to contact Expedia and that he was not giving me my money back...I paid 200.00 a night for 3 nights for a dump that had bugs, buy the way!
I left the property and went and checked into a lovely room in the Marriott but called Expedia and they contacted the Inn and he told them the same thing. That I had to cancel the reservation a week before if I wanted my money back! I wouldn't have cancelled if they had of honored my request even though it was a dump in a horrible area of Monterey. They are conartists, DO NOT STAY HERE!!
