Big room, good location

The room I had had two beds and was quite large. The breakfast food, consisting of boiled eggs and waffles and so on, was good. The computer in the lobby was fast. The hotel was located in a good, safe neighborhood, walking distance to both the mall and downtown Monterey. A very safe area for families. Unfortunately, I could hear the traffic, not the waves, at night, if I opened my window. And the hotel in kind of old. The bathroom tile was dirty; walking on it got my feet dirty.

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

The Monterey Sports Center is close by, but it is a VERY busy gym. The pool area is huge and the hallway is huge, but the weight room is kind of small and very crowded.

good location and affordable

The location is excellent, near the Del Monte Mall in Monterey and close enough to downtown that you can walk, yet the hotel/motel is in a prosperous neighborhood. The traffic is the only bad thing about the location, but all of the properties on Munras Ave suffer that fate. Even so, with the everything closed, I don't hear the traffic much. The hot tub is big but could be hotter. The gym isn't much, of course. I see people swimming in the pool, so it must be warm enough for them. The breakfast, which includes boiled eggs, is pretty good. The cable channels are plenty. The lobby has a computer that works and a printer. And the parking is good. I don't like the bed covers for some reason, so I took them off and use just the sheet. The property is a little old seeming, but it's not depressing or anything.

great town horrible hotel

Due to car show/auction room prices were double and triple average rates ,this place was clean but other than that a complete Rip off but that's all we could locate for 3 couples -3 rooms and we paid dearly -no air ,1950 wall style heaters worn out stained carpet, just a rip off and they knew it ,I told them I would not had rented the rooms if I knew there was no a/c and they simply replied the rooms don't need I ,no one's fault but mine for waiting so long,that's what you get when their rated 2 star and that's being liberal!!!

Nope

Floor was dirty, walls paper-thin, no AC, rooms in desperate need of updating. Staff was nice enough, but nice staff doesn't make up for a grungy motel.

Nice room, nice view, nice location

The room is nice, but the bathroom doesn't feel private because the window is almost transparent and people can walk right by. The view is nice, though. And the location is excellent, being a short walk from the mall and a short ride from downtown.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The aquarium is overrated and so is 17 mile drive. Walk around Carmel and Carmel beach and visit Jack's Peak Park, being careful not to get Poison Oak. Downtown Pacific Grove is homey and worth the drive.

Excellent

Everything was excellent. I ended up booking the room twice but the man at the front desk was more than helpful to us. Brilliant value for money, lovely pool, room very spacious and clean. Overall a very good experience. Would highly recommend this hotel and very close to downtown monteray. 5 stars.

Good value for a short stay

Got in late (past midnight) and checked in within a couple minutes. Very easy. Breakfast is minimal with some coffee, cereal, and a waffle maker. There were also some hard boiled eggs. Location was good, close to everything. Would stay again because it's so cheap.
