Meh

If this is a 3 star hotel...gross. Changed rooms once because the bathroom was dirty. Peeling wallpaper, outdated rooms, popcorn ceiling, broken baseboards, etc. about the only thing that was OK were the beds were comfortable. Worked for one night but would not go back again. Too many other hotels to choose from.

Not that great for the price

We stayed in Monterey for the Motorcycle races over 4th of July weekend. The room smelled old and musty. There was no ventilation in the bathroom and there was mold on the ceiling; the tile was old. The carpet didn't feel clean. It definitely had an "odor" as we came in after being gone. We opened the window to air it out but there was no screen on it.

Definitely recommend Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. Lots of shopping and dining options at both places. We did not try the hotel restaurant so we don't have an opinion on that.

Thumbs down

The refrigerator did not work, the towel bar fell off the wall in the bathroom when we tried to put a towel on it...oh, and there was a dead bug in the bed. Is that enough? It's on the edge of town and not central to anything in Monterey. It isn't a bad location if your trip includes Pacific Grove and Carmel as well as Monterey. The hotel decor is old and very tired. It is definitely not worth the money.

Close to what we wanted to visit in Monterey

We only stayed for a night. The hotel is close to the main touristic places in Monterey. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had some difficulty getting to it because it is right off the 399B exit and we missed it. So, keep your eyes open. Otherwise, it was a good stay and we would not have expected anything less or more for what we paid for.
