America Best Value Cypress Garden Inn

Would recommend Mon, May 17, 2010
The hotel staff at check-in was nice and trying to be helpful with the tourist attractions. We found the hotel interior and decoration was cute but with low maintenance. Our room's heater was not in good condition. We had to ask a staff to come to make it work for us. Also there might be a lack of staff because we met only one guy from night until morning. The breakfast was also not that good comparing to other same-rate hotels we've been with along the whole journey (We traveled from Seattle to LA, stopped at major tourist attractions along the way, and changed hotels every nights). We tried to ask the staff to check on the orange juice making machine which produced only diluted orange juice. But he was so busy because he had to run in and out between breakfast room and hotel reception. So we just left with no help on that.

Clean but noisy

Would recommend Mon, Apr 12, 2010
The room and bathroom were clean. The furnishings were fine. Rooms are small though, and the walls are thin so you're privy to everyone else's noise. It's on a main thoroughfare so you can't help but get street noise in the morning. The bed was very soft which, to me, is not great -- usually means it's seen better days. The TV did indeed get HBO, but not much else -- no local channels. The bathroom was actually fairly nice in terms of size and fixtures, but the shower temperature fluctuated constantly between cool and hot. The front desk staff was pleasant. All in all, for the money, it's fine. If you want more you'll have to spend more.

Shopping hint

Easy downhill 20-minute walk to downtown area and wharf. Short cab-ride back.

Great Location

Would recommend Mon, Oct 19, 2009
This place was great for the price we paid. The only real complaint I have was the the shower was messy (water went every were) and the smoke alarm kept beeping during the night. Luckily we had enough towels to clean up the water in the bathroom and the smoke alarm just needed a new battery. All in all, it was a great place to stay at for the price and the location was very close to downtown.

Get what you pay for.

Would not recommend Sun, Oct 11, 2009
This was a convenient location and a low price, but such a strong cleaning agent smell that was difficult to air out of the room.

Nightlife hint

15 minute walk to downtown Monterey with lots of dinning and nightlife options.

Unfriendly Staff

Would not recommend Sun, Jul 13, 2008
I checked into the Cypress Garden Inn in Monterey at about 1:30 pm. The lady behind the counter pointed out to me that check in time was 3:00 pm and I was too early to check in but she would see if any rooms were ready. Next she asked me how many people were going to occupy the room and I told her two. During the check-in process she asked me that question 3 more times and each time she did she would look out the window in the direction of my car as if to see if I was sneaking a whole group of people in...mind you I am 49 years old. My party nights are long over. When I check into a hotel room it is to get some sleep. If anything more happens...well, I consider that a bonus! When I had first walked in I put on the counter my drivers license and credit card and it was sitting there right in front of me. She asked me for it and when I pointed to it on the counter in front of her she told me she needed me to pick it up and hand it to her. After she took copies and an inprint she handed them back to me and I put it away. Five minutes later she asked for them again with no explanation why. The whole check-in process appeared that she didn't trust me or want me to stay there. Overall the property was in a good location but it looked a bit under-cared for. Weeds in the planters, grass wasn't mowed, spa was out of order. My main complaint was that the staff was so unfriendly. I paid a good amount for that room. Almost anywhere but Monterey I would have paid half the price. Because I paid more I expect to get better service. It doesn't cost a hotel any more to treat a guest with courtesy and respect, especially when paying more than usual.

Cypress Gardens

Would not recommend Sun, Jan 27, 2008
You could not use the pool and didn't want to because it was filthy dirty. The hot tub was open, but I never saw any one in it. You had to use your room key to get a cup of ice, and once you used your key in the ice machine it would lock you out of your room.The bathroom was not very clean either. After all of this planning for a special get-a-way weekend for the 2 of us we were both disappointed and left extremly early for home.

Attractions

The only thing close to this hotel was other hotels. It is located downtown and a few minutes from Canery row.
