We stopped for one night and found the rooms clean, well equipped and spacious. Unlike some reviews we had no issues with the bed and slept well.

The main area for restaurants and bars is just within comfortable walking distance (about 20 mins) or, no doubt, you could get a taxi there. We enjoyed the walk as we were having a drink. We never explored the cannery and I believe that would be a bit further to walk.

Breakfast is basic and there's very little seating so you can opt to take it back to your room.

Overall this is a decent choice in an expensive area. The owner is very friendly and helpful too.

We would return if we were back in the area.

One point of note that doesn't relate to this motel but is worth knowing is that the nearby 17 mile drive doesn't allow motorcycles as the owner doesn't want them. Me and my wife found this both odd and discriminatory. Especially as we were on a motorcycle!

We booked last minute a night at the Stage coach. Earlier that day they we left from San Francisco and shortly visited Santa Cruz and then Monterey (on a Sunday). It seemed like a nice and cosy town, the weather was not that good, that's why we decided to stay, because the day after that we were planning on doing the Big Sur.
Little breakfast included, pool outside (next to street). Location was okay, in a more peaceful street. Nicely decorated room, we had two beds.
Overall an okay stay during our roadtrip. Price/quality was definitely okay.

The stage coach lodge is one of those traditional motels with two floors of rooms around a parking lot and an office. However despite the lack of expectations on my part I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the rooms which were tastefully decorated in a modern decor and by the cleanliness and by the facilities. The safe in each room was particularly useful. The only downer is the breakfast arrangements. Two four seater tables and a small counter are insufficient for a motel with 30 or so rooms. there was no high chair and the breakfast choice was very limited. The rates (for Monterey) are very reasonable and the motel is in a convenient position with only a short drive to downtown Monterey.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet and convenient for the parking lot.

We spent 3 nights at the Stage Coach Lodge. The owners were very nice and friendly. The rooms were very clean and the cleaning staff were excellent and friendly. They all spoke English and came to our room each day asking if we need anything. We chose not to have the sheets changed for our stay. No need! But they made every effort to make sure that we had everything we needed.
They were in the process of remodeling some of the rooms. They took us into one of the rooms and showed us how they were decorating them. They will be great when they are completed. The construction staff were really not making much noise. They would start working around 8 and be finished by 6.
We will definitely go back there next time. Can hardly wait to see the new rooms.

This is a minimal and clean inn at a great value with great customer service. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The honeymoon suite was absolutely gorgeous. Would definitely book here again if I need to be in the area.

We couldn't find anyplace else that looked decent for a busy Valentines Day weekend day stay, so we booked here. It was disappointing. The rooms are dark, old time motel motif, but otherwise clean and adequate. My wife said she would rather drive home, three hours away, than stay here again overnight.

I came to this hotel for memorial day weekend. It was one of the cheaper hotels in the area especially with the music festival and it being a holiday weekend. The room was sufficient with a nice size bathroom and plenty of space for one or two people. My biggest complaint is the comfort of the beds. It was like sleeping on springs with a piece of plywood on top. If the beds were more comfortable I would have given a higher review. It is within walking distance of the Monterey County Fair Grounds but not much else.

Thanks for leaving a review which is honest. We are glad that you had a relatively good stay, and we apologize for your concerns with our bedding. Great news: we just began replacing all of our furniture and beds and our hotel is going even more upscale. Do come visit us again and see the changes for yourself.
