This summer, the three of us extensively travelled in California , Arizona and Utah and stayed in a wide variety of hotels. We are not difficult and on the whole we were rather satisfied with the price/quality ratio of the hotels in which the stayed. There is one notable exception , where there is no relationship whatsoever between quality and price , the "Sea breeze" motel in Monterey, Pacific Grove. After an unfriendly welcome , we stayed there for two nights in a room, so small, you could hardly move, on the first floor, with thin walls, old and ramshackle furniture, an old noisy fridge, a Wi-Fi which broke down several times in the evening when we were writing our emails and all this for the unbelievable price of around $200 per night, for the three of us, taxes included . To find a parking space at night required a lot of maneuvering . Complimentary breakfast consisted of a plastic cup of coffee and a muffin. So on the whole, this motel was a very disappointing experience,not to be repeated, to put it very mildly.
