Pleasantly surprised

Great price for the location. After reading some reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect at the motel, but I was pleasantly surprised. The room looked like it had been remodeled fairly recently, with new furniture, stylish bedding and comfy sheets. The room was small but very clean. There was very little parking available, but we still managed to find spots in the lot somehow. With a room on the street side, we were worried about noise...luckily we were so tired it didn't matter.

Monterey Downtown Travelodge

This was a real bargain. We had excellent rooms with new clean furniture and spreads, plenty of space for baggage, room to hang clothes and adequate drawer space. Despite being right next to a service station there was no noise. Management was efficient and helpful. To top it all off the "continental breakfast"(included) was much more with eggs, muffins,yogort, fruit, cereal juice and coffee

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

We got slightly lost one evening and stumbled upon the historic part of Monterey. It was actually quite close to the motel and very interesting. The old buildings are well-maintained and there is a description of each one(who lived in it, when it was built)

FANTASTIC LOCATION!

I chose this hotel because of price but it ended up being the best decision I could have made. The location allowed us to walk to everything, and the drive to Carmel where we attended a wedding was brief with almost direct access to the highway. They had free breakfast, but we chose to walk across the street to Denny's. I would glad stay there again and again.

Great value

Great value for the location. Clean Spacious Rooms. New up to date wide screen tv in room HBO . Free internet was great for booking tours etc. Elevator for luggage to upper floors. Parking is a little tight but not a problem. Breakfast area is small but lots of choice. Plenty of breakfastand lunch options nearby. A bit of a walk to cannery Row and Aquarium but definitely worth it.
