Very Good Value

I needed to stay 1 night in Monterey so I could be fresh for an 8:00AM job interview. Padre Oaks had the best price, and I was very happy with the room. It had a queen size bed, TV, Microwave, Small Fridge and Coffee Maker. The only thing missing was an alarm clock. I called the front desk and they arranged for a wake-up phone call for me. The bathroom contained soap and towels, but no shampoo or lotion. The location is right across from a major shopping mall that includes a movie theater and Whole Foods grocery. I am unemployed, and I felt this was money well spent in my effort to get a job in Monterey.

CUTE

clean, quiet. The pool was small. They wouldn't hold my bags after check-out (until my evening flight). Nice enough for a business trip on the cheap.
