Couple's get away ... should have chosen better

Where do I start? Ok, location ... it is a little over a mile from Fisherman's Wharf so the location is as stated in that respect, I do not agree with "close to the aquarium" but I guess "close" is subjective. Staff was curt and I wouldn't say friendly, but very matter-of-fact, not someone I would choose to work the desk at a hotel. The room, oh dear the room. When we checked in the room was stuffy so we opted to turn the small ac on, nope it was merely for decoration it did not work. Good thing it was Monterey and Mother Nature does work. The remote for the TV did not work (I know no big deal right, but after walking to Fisherman's Wharf and back I was a bit worn out and that bit of modern technology would have been awesome had it worked). The bed was hard, if you have a bad back and need something on the rock side of firm, that bed is for you! The walls are paper thin, I sneezed and I swear the guy in the next room said "bless you". In the shower the next morning I found black mildew on the wall, not even hiding was in plain sight (that really grossed me out and made me question the cleanliness of the rest of the room). The continental breakfast, I think was summed up very well in a previous review, is a joke. It appeared to be Costco muffins cut in quarters and a plastic pitcher of something orange (could have been juice could have been Sunny D, by this tine I just wanted out of there so I did not even try it). I used my rewards points to pay for this stay, otherwise I would have demanded a refund.

Worked for me!

Perhaps a bit tacky, but clean! And quiet, surprisingly so as it was right off a main thoroughfare-Munras. close to HWY 1, and old town Monterey etc. Small frig,microwave,coffee maker. continental breakfast minimal,likewise cable TV. A good deal for the budget minded.

near the aquarium

The best place to stay for the price. The manager personally took care of any problems we ran into. Very helpful.

night for two

Second time staying here with my wife. Bed is average, not great. Pillows are ok. The hotel as a whole doesn't feel like a cheap motel that you regret staying in, but it does make you afraid that it is. But in the end, it was good. We enjoyed our stay. The staff was never rude, but like the hotel felt like something was missing. What really brought this experience together for us was the fireplace. We love fireplaces. So with everything being par, the fireplace was able to make it an enjoyable night.

Very basic motel

A generally shabby motel, way over-priced; "breakfast" was a joke

There was a bed, the room was warm and dry.one thing is always true. "You always get what you pay for." Not recommended for families.

Good Location

Aside from a really good location (across from Del Monte Shopping Center), don't expect anything more than just a cheap place to bunk up for the the weekend.
