Cheap Hotel/Decent Location

I didn't expect much given the price of our room. I was disappointed however, at the very strong chemical/cleaning solution smell in our room. We opened the window and door and let the place air out for several hours before actually being comfortable in the room. There was a similar smell, that may have been even stronger, in the lobby when we checked in. It was so strong that I opted out of the free continental breakfast the next morning, it was very unpleasant. Other than that the room was ok given the price we paid.

great place

We have stayed before and really like the location. We can walk everywhere, especially out to dinner without moving the car. Breakfast is good. Because we liked our stay 2 years ago came back.

Just what I was looking for

I was staying in town for business with one day for site seeing. Wanted a place that was close to town, clean, friendly staff and convenient. TravelLodge was all of those. Had a great stay.

Great Value

This was the perfect location.....we were able to walk everywhere to the wharf, Cannery row, very good restaurants. We will go back for sure. The front desk person, Carol, was so nice and helpful with directions and recommendations. the room was nice and no bad smells. Good choice. It would have been good if there had been a small table in the room.

Short walk to restaurants, shopping, Trader Joes,Fishermans wharf. Long walk to Cannery row but a perfect trail from the Wharf.

Travel Lodge, Monterey, California 9/9/11-9/15/11

My husband and I liked the convenience of this location in downtown Monterey. The staff were nice and helpful in providing information as needed. The bed was high quality with a Simmons mattress and pillow topping. Excellent sleeping! I liked the green energy incorporated in the hotel. My dismay was that the water is hard. It is in a traffic area so it can be a little noisy at night but it is not for an extended period of time Very nice continental breakfast with a variety of items and beverages to choose. A good choice and a fair price for the hotel. We would recommend it to travelers. Pat & Jim Connecticut
