I stayed here for 3 nights for a event nearby and being only a two star hotel I wasn't expect that much but I was in for a surprise! Upon checking in the place seemed nice but nothing to over the top and it is on a VERY busy street but the gentleman that helped me was VERY nice and we discuss about the event I was attending. He made me feel right at home and describe where the room was very accurately. They had a breakfast area which consisted of bagged cinnamon rolls, some fruit and coffee. Also there was a outside sitting area with plenty of places to sit but no view of anything expect the hotel property and the other business nearby/
The room was on the bottom floor which at first I wasn't all that comfortable with but there was parking right outside the room and it was covered so from the side street it wasn't to bad as far as being safe. The room was on the large size with a table, two chairs, fridge and microwave. The TV was a great size with plenty of channels to choose from. The negative side was that there was a fireplace but between me and my other travel companion we could not figure out how to use it. Since it was on the bottom floor the view was of a wall, another business and a tiny garden. So if your there for the view look else where. Also even though we were near the street you could only hear it if the window was open. Other then that the room was VERY quiet and I got a good night sleep every night.
The property was split to two buildings and the soda machine was in my building and the ice machine was on the other which was a little confusing the first night. Also the parking lot is a tad small but since it wasn't sold out we always found a place to park. Also if your worried about parking downtown Monterey isn't to far away so if your up for some exercise you can walk there with the surrounding area being just fine to do it in.
The Vagabond Inn Monterey is a great choice to stay if your looking for someplace cheap and simple and that's not far away from anything nearby.
