Super 8 Monterey
Ranked #36 of 56 Hotels in Monterey
Reviewed 15 October 2013

-Great value
-Great location
-Great experience
-Very quiet

If you're looking for good experience in a night's rest with value, comfort, and safety - stay here! If you want to be treated like royalty, pay-up and go elsewhere.

I recently stayed at this Super 8 with my wife on a three day visit to Monterey for $59.99/night + tax. I saw the positive reviews here on TA, I thought I would give it a shot and was quite pleased! Nothing fancy, but the room was very clean and neat.

The king size bed was comfortable along with 5 fluffy pillows that were very nice. The room came with a decent closet and a large bathroom. The fixtures were relatively generic, but efficient and worked properly. It also provided a small refrigerator, which is convenient for multi-day visits. The TV was older, but large (who's watching TV when in Monterey!); location is good - not far from main downtown/warf attractions, maybe 5 minutes or so.

I would definitely stay here again as I personally do not need my hiney kissed or to be treated like royalty at the places I sleep. I just need clean, comfortable, quite, and good value - this place delivers on all of that.

Large clean rooms, usual amenities fridge etc. Microwave in reception. No safe in room.
Ok'ish value for money. But a small bottle of shampoo to share in the bathroom is a bit mean.
Super breakfast not so super but we went out anyway.Close to cannery row and carmel so good for visiting both- often sells out at weekends for that reason
However when we visited there was a big crowd of really loud late 20's/30 /early 40's men holding a drinking party in the car park. When asked - very nicely- if they could keep it down a bit they were really rude.
So not a great stay, nothing special and probably wouldn't come again.

For the room rate of $129.00 + tax that I paid, I was disappointed. I had read reviews that mentioned staff being pleasant which wasn't my experience. They were satisfactory but didn't extend themselves. The motel location was more distant from my destination than I would have liked, and frankly, I thought the cost was higher than the the value of the 'no frills' accommodations. The bathroom soap broke in two, there was no warm running water in the bathroom sink, air conditioning didn't work well (blower/temp control). If you just need a place to 'crash' and aren't concerned about extras, this place would be ok. But its not a place for a traveling executive.

Very nice for a Super 8. Not sure if the staff is eating the good stuff off the breakfast. Not sure what a Super Cinnamon roll is but all that we had was bread, pastries, cereal, and oatmeal. No yogurt they advertise either. Room was large (we had just stayed in San Francisco so anything larger than a closet was huge!) Loved having sink in bathroom and another in dressing area.

Overall the room is very clean , furniture and décor is ok, nothing special , just your typical hotel. The price is kind of high, I had make a reservation early , but they had drop the price the night before and they are not willing to do a price adjustment.

Room Tip: all the hotel is about the same in quality, just found the lower price one to stay.

Thank you for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. We were glad you enjoyed your stay and the clean rooms. While our rooms rates do fluctuate at times, some reservations are prepaid to another company and not charged by us. Therefore, we are unable to make a rate adjustment. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your experience and we hope to see you again.
