Great for stop over

The guy who checked us in couldn't have been more helpful and he even offered to change our room so that we could be beside friends that we were travelling with. Our room was right beside the pool which was very clean. The breakfast buffet was average however there was plenty of food and plenty of space in the dining room. Good location close to town and the wharf. Would recommend to anyone looking a few days stop over while driving down the coast.

Rude manager

We rented this room with advance payment for 15 nights. The manager was very rude, accusing us of smoking in the room. We smoked only on our balcony and kept it very clean. We did burn inscents as aroma therapy and he said that is the same as smoking. I was bitten twice by what appeared to be spider. We had a pet room since we have two service animals. The room had fleas and our service animals had to be bathed to rid them.

Monterey trip

It was a bit noisy with the air traffic near by. Rooms were clean. The only trouble I had. Was when I changed rooms. I left my nightgown on hook behind bathroom door. I called to notify front desk instead of going back to room myself. We'll they never found it. I called every day I was there and even when I came. Still no gown.Very sad. It had been my mothers. Who recently passed.

Worst experience of my life!

I can't believe this hotel is still in business. There was a hole in the wall looking into my room. The sliding glass door had no handle on the outside. My fiancée got stuck on the balcony. The handle on the shower door fell off. There was NO bathtub. The shower stall was 6'4" high, my hands hit the ceiling when shampooing my hair. There was NO conditioner or coffee in the room. Check in time was 3pm, the pool closed @ 8:30pm. The pool opened @ 9am, check out time 11am. There were security notices about securing this, locking that....seemed very unsafe. The tenants next door were doing illegal activity in the parking lot with cars coming and going. All this was brought to the staff's attention and they did nothing about my concerns or complaints. What a nightmare! I hope for a 50%refund of my costs!

Definitely will stay here again.

The staff were very helpful and polite and professional. The beds were so comfortable. We all slept really good. It would have been nice if the hours of the pool were longer.

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!
