“The Great 8 in Monterey”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

This place was a very pleasant surprise. It was considerably less expensive than many motels in the area. They had mostly updated everything. The rooms were painted in contemporary colors. The bathroom and flooring was redone. They even went the extra mile and painted the tile surround on the bathtub and sink counters. We really liked this place. We would definitely stay there again. They could keep up on things a tiny bit better. The stairs could use a little repair and a lot of cleaning. The staff was very friendly. They called me at 8:30 pm to let me know that my credit card didn't work and that they needed a new number to hold the room. (I had replaced my cards after my wallet was stolen.) It is corporate policy to let the room go but the manager Mike Patel made sure to give me the benefit of the doubt and call me. Apparently Monterey was all booked up and my room had become quite valuable. I really appreciated this gesture. It went way above and beyond policy. There breakfast was supposed to be available from 7 to 10. My husband went down at 9:55 and there was no breakfast available. The next day we went down by 9 and had a decent continetal breakfast.

We just needed a place to sleep so we could go whale watching. Our room was spacious and clean. Service, though not friendly, was efficient. Breakfast was spartan but adequate. All in all, it was good value for your money.

This motel is excellent location -easy to find, walking distance to downtown Monterey and easy access to highway to visit other areas such as Carmel, 17 Mile Drive and Big Sur. Rooms were clean and comfortable, have in-room safe, refrigerator and microwave. Owner was super friendly - gave good advice about places to eat and chatted with us every morning as we ate our continental breakfast at the motel lobby. Stayed here for ten nights when we visited Monterey for the Big Sur Half Marathon - would highly recommend this motel - the Del Monte shopping Centre located right across the street - grocery store, nice restaurants and lots of stores including Macy's. It was ideal for us.

My famiy and me stayed there for two nights. The service was very good, the owners( I guess they are the owners) were very polite and helpfull, giving me Tips about the way I should go take. The Hotel is very well located, in less then ten minutes you can go to the Aquarium and there is a market that you can go walking.

We wanted to try out a 'motel' and got way more than we were expecting!

Well appointed with big clean room, comfy bed, free parking and free WiFi, which was the best of our entire West coast trip! The owners were super helpful pointing out local attractions, places to eat and the best routes into town.

Whilst some people might not consider it walking distance into the town, we were more than happy to take a stroll. Its a lovely town and the walk to the aquarium and Cannery Row was very pleasant. We were also pleased we'd walked as we were able to take a look at the street market and shops, something we would have missed if we had driven.

The location is also great for accessing the mall across the street. There are some big name stores and good food outlets too.

Would highly recommend staying here, the amenities and service is amazing value for money!

This Super 8 was good for a weekend stay in Monterey. It is not terribly far from the aquarium, and there is a large mall across the street. Breakfast is typical for this kind of accommodation. Everything was clean in the room.

I do want to comment on an interesting room option at this property.

We had our adult son with us. We are accoustomed to sharing one room as a family, but I imagine our son would prefer to have a little more privacy. Our room had a main bedroom with a small bedroom attached, separated by a folding door. Both bedrooms have separate door entrances to the bathroom. This gave our son a little privacy, and I am sure this room was less costly than the usual arrangement of two separate hotel rooms that have an interior door between them. It worked great for us, and younger children would no doubt like having their own room and TV as much as an adult child.
