Their breakfast is Nothing

Do Not expext anything for breakfast other than some old pieces of bread and old coffee. No milk or juice provided. Also was complained by the staff when asked for a couple of plastic forks when checked in. Not worth the value!

Needs Repairs

Good: Manager, flowers in front, heater worked, safe Bad: Permitted 36 hour rave directly behind my room at fairground afforded me NO sleep. Bathroom door didn't close, room smelled like cat spray, one meter square hole in ceiling being unprofessionally repaired and unpainted and fresh toxin smell in the first room offered.

A place to sleep. Not much more.

Location is convenient, and staff is friendly, and the cleaning staff did a good job, but if you're looking to impress your lady, this is not the place to do it. It's a no frills, nothing fancy, place to spend the night, but not much more. Our room smelled musty, and the motel is old and could use some renovation. The prices would be high anywhere else, but this is Monterey, (where price gouging is the norm), and there are only a scant selection of places cheaper than this. The continental breakfast just barely meets the minimum standard. The bottom line is that if you're looking for a cheap motel, you may want to consider this place, otherwise it shouldn't be difficult to find a nicer place to stay. I would hesitate to recommend this place to all but those of us on a budget.

Routine stay every year for ALMS

Can't beat the location and the prices. More than enough good restaurants within walking distance.

quite the deal

just needed a relief from the heat, so looked for the cheapest hotel available. This was it. We were really surprised, the rooms were spotless, ok decor and smelled great. Customer servcice was fine, but hotel is under airport flight plans and there was constant air traffic until about 9pm. Walking distance to the fairgrounds and short distance to monterey wharf, cannery row, etc. I would stay here again

Happy Customer :)

It was the perfect location to Monterey downtown. It was 5 minutes away to everything. The rooms were clean and simple. I enjoyed my stay :)
