Fantastic rooms

We booked this motel thinking it was just going to be cheap and average but it completely blew our mind. The rooms are AMAZING - roomy, comfortable, great lighting, great tv, the furniture all looks new and high quality. Overall it's a really good deal. You also get pretty decent free breakfast! Close to carmel beach - beautiful place to visit.

Best bang for your buck!

My GPS routed me to a different Travelodge location which was weird but the guy up front was professional enough to not get annoyed and mention this happened all the time. Long story short it was a great experience overall. Clean room, looks fresh & newly remodeled. The only gripe I guess is no elevator? Didn't bother me much now but when you just got there all tired & having to carry a lot of stuff is another story. Wifi sucked too but I have OK data connection but I can see other people may make a big deal about it For the money will definitely stay there again!

comfortable & good location

We stayed here as a base from which to explore the Monterey Bay area. The motel is conveniently located for quick access to Route 1 south toward Point Lobos and other beaches and parks on the Big Sur coast or north toward Santa Cruz. It is also close to the walking/biking corridor that runs along the coastline, and we were able to walk to Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, the Aquarium, etc. without having to worry about traffic congestion and parking. The motel is clean and comfortable and quiet.

Average

The room was clean, the staff was professional but not friendly. Not sure if that is good or bad. My husband said he kept hearing airplanes I only heard one. I probably would stay there again as I know it was clean.

Not Good

The picture on the website does not resemble what you get. We were in a pet friendly room which was old and felt dirty. I would not step on the carpet with my bare feet. Definitely not a place I would recommend.

Noisy but nice

The airplanes taking off and landing nearby are noisy. But aside from that, the room was clean, staff courteous, the heat worked, plenty of hot water, and near the freeway. We would stay there again - just bring earplugs if you don't want to be disturbed between 10 PM and 6 or 7 AM.

Convenience and comfort

Very impressed at check-in. As an older woman traveling alone, I was placed in an interior room near the lobby. The clerk was concerned for my safety and security in not recommending a room with an exterior door to the parking lot. Very comfortable bed and great water pressure in the shower. Breakfast included was a big plus and time saver. Close to Rte 1, the only drawback was airplane noise during the evening.

Pefect for a weekend getaway

Stayed here while hiking in Monterrey. Room was clean and comfortable, no frills, no surprises, and staff was competent for our purposes. A little bit overpriced for a motel, imho, but we booked at the last minute so didn't expect a great deal.
