My girlfriend and I stayed here for easy access to the aquarium and the other beach side activities. However, the second morning there I awoke to a bedbug crawling on my arm! We checked over the bed and sheets and found another. Although we only found 2 specimens, if there are two then there were definitely more. We immediately called...

Was going to stay for 2 nights but cut short our stay. An hour or so after checking in the airplanes started to fly over the hotel alarming close. Room was clean but not very welcoming. Bathroom was tired. Iron but no ironing board although they did bring me a table top ironing board to use but there's was no...

If a fridge and microwave are critical to you, stay here. But the smell from the carpet freshener is overwhelming, we both had our sinuses clog up almost immediately. After a day of travel and exploring, call us crazy but we like to relax with some TV. All you can get are religious and informercial channels, almost no channels are...

This motel reminds me of a florida motel. Laid back. Clean. simple. It looks like they take good care of the landscaping. A bit noisy. and they could use a new T.V. Ours kept making a humming sound. But it was close to monterey bay aquarium and we slept good. I would stay again if I couldn't afford anything else....

This hotel was the cheapest in monterey. Here's why: -Old -smelly -very small breakfast area, no where to eat -it says in the hotel brochure breakfast is until 10. They tell you it's until 930 and clear the breakfast while your still eating! -staff is RUDE! -airplanes fly right over hotel, noisy! -showers only in the bathroom -cold! Only stay...

Room not worth 99. We were traveling without a destination this day and ended up in Monterey. The price is higher than what shows in AAA and on booking.com. The room is your standard roadside motel room. It was clean, and comfortable, and the lady at the desk was helpful with suggesting restaurants and giving us coupons. Outside very loud...

It's a typical budget-minded motel. Nothing fancy, just a place to come back and sleep at the end of the night. An unexpected plus was the rooms have a mini fridge and microwave.

We stayed there for the first time for our honeymoon as the rates were wonderful and central located. The staff and front desk people where very sweet and helpful as we didn't know the area very well. They gave us a map and showed us the most romantic sites to see, and places to dine. We were so pleased that...

“Not sure about other rooms, but our room was nasty, smelled, ceiling repaired with duct tape, flat pillows, etc. The only positive comment I can make is that it was quiet since we arrived after midnight so other patrons were probably asleep. I would not allow my dogs to stay here!!”
