“Good value for monterey and clean rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2011

In the middle of july during the week me and my friend drove up to Monterey from the Los Angeles area for one night. MY first choice was the motel 6 on Freemont street in Monterey. That motel 6 was sold out.

This motel 6 was available. I made a reservation for this hotel last minute. The hotel is located off highway 1 freeway 10 miles north of downtown Monterey. It is located right off the freeway. At the end of the parking lot is a dennys restuarant. A block from the hotel is a 7-11 with a gas station and a wal mart supercenter.

The check in at the hotel was quick,easy and friendly. The room was clean and had a 1990s tube tv,microwave and refriderator.

Soap and towels are provided while shampoo and conditioner are not.

The hotel room was very quiet.

In the morning my friend and I both forgott doederant,shampoo and conditioner. No problem becuase I was able to go down the street to walmart to buy this stuff.

I would stay here again.

Motel 6 is a pretty basic place (no toiletries other than a bar of soap & toilet paper), and sometimes the rooms can be shabby. But this one is in a nice location and handy for a Denny's for breakfast, and has been recently refurbished so the rooms are nice. Also I was stupid enough to leave my purse with all my credit cards behind in the room when we checked out and the staff found it and posted it on to my next location - a big thanks to them for their honesty and helpfulness!

We stayed at this Motel 6 several times during our travels up and down the Pacific Coast. Most Monterey hotels are pretty picky about pets so we looked elsewhere and found this place. We do not stay at Motel 6 often but this is better than most we have visited. The room was typical. Nice and clean and we had no problems at all. Low price and pets stay free.

We stayed here for one night on September 4th 2011 (after making reservations on expedia, for a non smoking room with a queen bed). Upon arrival at 10pm to check in and asking for our room that we had reserved weeks before, they reply with, "I'm sorry, all we have for you is a smoking room." Dissatisfied and angry, they further told us that the error was due to their "system overbooking." After apologizing for their mistake, they discounted our room by 10%.

Motel is standard Motel 6, but this was the first time we had to move out of a room so maintenance could fix the toilet. Luckily, the second room had a refrigerator and microwave the first one didn't, so actually the move was fine. Main problem was one night the housekeeper took all the dirty towels, used soaps and glasses, but nothing was put back, so we had to make 2 different trips to the office to get supplies that should have been there. The next two nights all items were OK. Probably we won't go back, Motels in Seaside are more convenient than in Marina.
