“Great service”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stayed here for nearly a week , we were on the top floor , lovely room for the price and the staff were excellent , very friendly and helpful. I would defiantly stay again. Very central to downtown and the bus station if you want to head anywhere.

Although a little dated and when you first walk in a slightly fusty smell, this hotel was clean and we had a good sized room. The staff were friendly and the complimentary breakfast and parking were a bonus. We were able to walk to the local restaurants and fisherman's wharf from the hotel. Although next to the road and petrol station we didn't hear any noise.

Thank you for a 4 star review. Our staff does a great job at keeping everything clean and working.
We do check every room everyday. We have renovated all guest rooms in the last several years.
Being close to 40+ restaurants, Fisherman's Wharf and the beach, we have an ideal location
to help all discover Monterey on foot.

Reviewed 30 September 2013

Affordable with pleasant staff, however, the stains on the chair and the carpet in our room made us feel uneasy. The room had been cleaned nicely but the stains were unsettling. The last bathroom update was obviously many years ago with cultured marble counter and yellow tile. I really think that anyone in the obese category would have trouble using the shower, etc in the small bathroom. We were on the 2nd floor.
The parking is limited and one must not have a large vehicle to navigate either the underground garage or the few available spaces ground level. Come in a small vehicle or on a motorcycle. Our mid-sized SUB was a tough fit.
Easy walking distance to many things. Great staff. Quieter than you'd think given its location above a gas station at a 3-way intersection but the A/C fan provided good white noise. Ok mattress.
One is in Monterey for a variety of excursions so hanging in a motel is not high on anyone's agenda. This one will suffice for a brief stay but don't expect anything but most basic amenities like hair dryer, ironing board, coffee pot. They did have a safe. No m/w; no fridge. The toilet paper roll spare had a flower made out of toilet paper on it. Really, it did. We opted for Denny's over the breakfast offerings due to bad coffee and carbs. Saw the pool used twice in the AM so wondered if it was heated or just brave people.

Thanks for a review that found us affordable with a helpful staff. We apologize that there were any stains in your room and we are attending to that immediately. We have 13 parking places on the ground level and over 27 spots in the garage with a 6'4" clearance. Our pool is now heated and is heated from Easter until the end of October. Our bathrooms all have new floors and fixtures and on the third floor we have all newly redecorated bathrooms and guest rooms. All rooms were completed in the last 3/4 years and were designed by a designer. Queen pillowtop beds are in every room and are found to be very comfortable by even the most discerning of our guests. Any amenities beyond shampoo, conditioner and lotion can be found at the front desk for free. Half or our rooms and all of our 2 bedded rooms have refrigerators. The coffee and tea is available 24 hours in the lobby and the continental breakfast does include hard boiled eggs and yogurt, as well as waffles,muffins and more. We do have 40+ restaurants, Fisherman's Wharf and Monterey Beach all within a short walk. Our staff takes great pleasure in giving a concierge style approach to all your questions and needs. We do have a great location from which to discover Monterey on foot. No other lodges are this close to all of downtown Monterey. Our Amana A/C's were installed in 2006 and many properties do not have A/C. Please feel free to come and visit us again. WE do have many repeat guests.
