Quiet Seaside, CA location

Comfortable bed, clean bedding, laminate wood flooring, quaint little family run motel in Seaside just a comfortable drive from the freeway. Recommend it for a quiet get away for a few nights in the Seaside area. Manager accommodated last-minute change to reservation to suit my schedule without additional charge. The bathroom wall could use a little cleaning but appears the family strives to run a nice place.

Misleading Motel Info: No Breakfast; No Room Service

This place was a disappointment. Despite some recent renovations, there was evidence everywhere of neglect and decay. The pool had visible broken concrete on the bottom. Free breakfast was advertised; it did not exist. Room service did not exist: just an ad for restaurants which would deliver there goods, for a price. After the 1st night, our room keys stopped working. This was treated as an ordinary thing. It was not. I did feel welcomed or well served. Its 3 stars should have been 2, maximum.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Cheap, cheap, cheap. Despite the inflated price, the money was not spent on the facility. The ice machine was old and noisy. There was a piece of broken concrete under part of the refrigerator, to attempt to balance it. And the TV had NO public TV stations!

Place not prepared for guest

We came to Monterey to attend a wedding . We called in advance to arrange early check-in. But never received a return call. When we arrived we arrived our room wasn't ready. We asked to use a bathroom or some space we could change for the wedding. The person at the hotel said we could go to the motel next door. They had rooms available at the same price. We made a quick check of the other room and agreed to take the room. We were in a hurry to change and get to the wedding. The replacement room was missing pillow cases. We changed quickly and left.i When we returned to the room we started to notice the condition of the room. There were paint scrapes on the wall in several spots. A lampshade was cracked. There were no extra towels. The bathtub plug didn't work. One of the towels was damp from prior use( not from us ) and it had been used. There wa lipstick and makeup on the towel. The room was not in the condition you would expect ifor almost $200 a night. We never got the opportunity to use the Monterey Surf Inn

Perfect accommodation for my purpose. Arrived late in the evening, the room was comfortable, clean, conveniently located, and quiet. I was surprised to find such a nice and inexpensive accommodation to be had in Monterey.

Comfortable Hotel, Staff needs work

Easy check in, but no receipt provided. Staff gruff, but convened all necessary info (no smoking, no pets). Room had been recently renovated, hardwood floors and tile in bath. Okay stay no extras however.

Great value

- The room was comfortable. - Wifi was decent and free. - The location close to the main attractions (wharfs, Aquarium, malls, restaurants, freeways), short driving distance to all of them. - Setting was not loud from neighbors or traffic - Parking was sufficient. Didn't get to check out the swimming pool. Would stay here again!
