We had a really hard time finding lodging for our weekend stay in June in the Monterey area and used a third party to help us book our stay. The Olympia Lodge was one of the only places left in our price range. Two rooms for one night and a one room for two nights. My son and his family arrived a day before us and felt the property was not up to their standards and left to stay in another hotel which was more of what they were looking for. The front desk lady was nice enough to offer us a refund for that night.
We arrived the next day and were given a room downstairs with a King bed, our daughter and her family decided to come over and use the extra room for the night. They had a room downstairs with two double beds. Our room smelled very musty but it was decorated nice enough, the bathroom was tiny with minimal amenities. The property is showing wear, peeling paint and unkept landscaping. The potted plant outside our room was dead with a broken pot.
The breakfast area is very average with a basic continental breakfast offered. This was a very short stay and we were not at the property that much except to sleep and shower. I would suggest putting a little bit of maintenance into the property to bring it up to snuff. The little touches are what makes a property quaint and charming.
Other reviews state that there is a pool, but it is NOT the hotel's pool. It is the condo complex next door that has the pool, not the Olympia Lodge and it was closed. The grounds are not kept up here either and is much need of attention.
