Days Inn Monterey-Fisherman's Wharf Aquarium
Ranked #48 of 56 Hotels in Monterey
Reviewed 28 July 2008

Stayed at this hotel over the weekend of July 26, and it was fine for what we paid. The room was clean, not too noisy (except you would hear the fridge kick on every 30 minutes throughout the night), and everything worked. Lame continental breakfast, but no worse than at every other budget motel in town.

The location is good if you have a car, but seems a bit far to walk to places like the aquarium- although downtown Monterey (Alvarado street and the like) is definately within a 15-20 minute walk. Whole Foods across the street so if you want to do a picnic that's pretty easy. Also a movie theater near by so if the kids are bored of sight-seeing they have someting else to do.

I would stay here again if (like this time) they were the the closest hotel to the main attractions that was within my budget. Realistically, I think it's worth paying a moderate amount more to stay in a nicer place and closer to the things you come to Monterey for.

Having said that, it was fine in a pinch and I may stay there again if my budget is similar.

Staying at Days Inn was an unforgettable experience for me. The rooms are sunny and very clean, everything that was supposed to be working ( like TV, for example ) did, the price was more than reasonable. And the location! I've walked to the Fisherman's Wharf, to the Monterey Museum of Art, to Alvarado Street and our " Ghost Tour ". There are Trader Joe's and Walgreens for those of us who always end up forgetting shampoo, for example, within walking distance as well. I'm not extremely picky about breakfast, so their Continental Breakfast was more than enough. And you got a free copy of USA TODAY. Overall, I wouldn't dream of staying anyplace else.

Stayed one night with grandkids and another family in two rooms. No ac so to keep cool needed to keep windows open to the auto court which let in noise from other guests and busy street . Non-smoking room but need to keep the windows open let smoke in from other guests smoking. Door had been recently reset and swings the wrong way for building and handicapped codes, so you walk into the chairs and have to swing it ALL the way open to come and go.

This place sucked for several reasons. Firstly, it's the local boozer hang-out. When we arrived, at 4 in the afternoon, there were several units with their doors open and people hanging around the hallways drinking. The first night actually wasn't too bad...the rooms have been renovated and are clean but the second night there was a virtual block party with about three or four rooms partying together.....and they didn't even arrive together. This went on until 3-4 in the morning. It's way over priced and really it's a Motel NOT a Hotel. I'd never stay here again.

Checked in around 9:00 pm. The stairs up to the second floor were uneven and unsafe in the dark, especially for small children or parents carrying luggage. The toilet was running when we entered the room. You could see light and hear street noise through the gap between the door and the jamb. The cover of the heating unit was broken and lying on the floor in pieces of sharp metal. There was a coffee maker, but no coffee pot. The hairdryer in the bathroom was broken, the on button was jammed. The toilet clogged and then overflowed the next morning, soaking the bathroom floor and carpet. Couldn't wait to wake up and get out of there.

We stayed for several nights and never again. We had a suite and when we started the water in the jacuzzi, it was brown.
The shower had mold in all of the corners.
The carpet was stained. Sheets were very clean but the bed was very uncomfortable.

Never again

I was actually wanting to stay at the other Days Inn just down the road, but was given this number instead. The staff was pleasent, but the room did look as if they attempted to modernize it on the cheap. The shower did not drain well, but we were only there to sleep. The main problem is the bed bug infestation. We stayed in Room 109. I woke up Sunday scratching a few spots, but it got worse as the day went on, and I ended up swelling up on my hands and legs and face . I know it is bed bugs because I where I was not covered by clothing (long sleeve t-shirt, socks and underwear I was bit numerous times.
