Needs something more

The staff were friendly, but the place itself seems somewhat ominous. Something about the exterior just seems very unfriendly, and the covered over pool in a corner of the carpark didn't exactly welcome me in either, I wouldn't come here if you have children. The wharf is within walking distance, but I would recommend getting back before it gets dark as there were no lights along the street it's situated. While the room was very comfortable, the bed sheets were dirty. I ended up pulling them off and sleeping on a blanket out of my car instead. I didn't expect much as it was cheap, I got what I paid for, but I next time I will pay the extra for a nicer hotel.

10 mins drive from Monterey attractions.

Arrived after 5pm and its already dark in winter. Was quickly assigned room on the ground floor even though I indicated , through my booking, my preference on the 2nd flr for the supposely quiteness, but as it was not reflected on the inn's booking, and the fact that it was hardly full, I relented. Based on other reviewers comment, we confirmed and was happy to note that the bathroom was renovated and should deserved a 3 star if you do not need other exterior facilities. Avoid the operator's suggestion for dining with free appetizer as this is a fine dining restaurant. Breakfast hrs could be extended and timing to start earlier for early risers; breakfast could be improved with hot pancakes, waffles with so many budget hotels now including on their breakfast menu.

Sea harvest seafood restaurant on Foam street voted best in Monterey for at least six years. You get to pick what you want and have it cooked the way you wanted.

Clean, nice staff, great value

We stayed here on December 2012. The value and staff was really great! Although there are not located in the center of the town, but it does not matter at all. It's still close to the town and everything. I will definitely use this again.

clean, relatively cheap, close to downtown Monterey

We stayed only one night but the hotel was clean and reasonably priced. Walls are a little thin, and the pool is really small. It's a nice walk to downtown Monterey (wharf etc.).

Could have been better

You dont get the room in the picture! You have to pay an extra $33 to get that one.The Carpet was DISGUSTING!! I never took off my shoes, the sheets looked like they were from the 60's The only good part was restrooms. They looked newly renovated.

Unbeatable motel for the price

My wife, daughter and I were in town for a funeral so we were just looking for clean and quiet at a reasonable price. Our expectations were not high but we were pleasantly surprised. We were able to check in early, which one reviewer said was not permitted. Then again, December in Monterey is not peak season. The place was clean, quiet, pleasantly appointed and included muffins, apples juice and coffee in the morning. The owners were very polite and friendly and the only reason we didn't give it a 5 was there was no restaurant there. But we'd rather eat on Fisherman's Wharf anyway. Next time we're in town, we'll stay here instead of the pricier hotels we usually stay in, and we'll use the money we save on lodging - eating seafood at the many wonderful local restaurants instead.

Average in every way...

Went to Monterey for the weekend. Thought the reviews were good so we decided to stay here. The walls are thin, could hear babies crying in the next room. Overall, it was actually a little expensive for the room we got. Monterey has better choices that this.

Great location for Fisherman's Wharf

Convenient to Rt. 1, but difficult to find in the dark on way back from Fisherman's Wharf. Reasonable rates, clean, not luxurious. Free coffee, juice and packaged Danish for breakfast -- have to eat in room.

Take a nice walk down to the town pier and have breakfast at this quaint diner right on the pier. can't remember it's name, but it's right there. Go one pier over and see seals basking themselves.
