Met expectation except the advertised breakfast

The hotel is clean and comfortable to stay at its price level. My only complaint would be that it no longer provides breakfast, which it advertised to serve. Note that there is no coffee machine in the room.

Buy some breakfast to the room (fridge and microwave provided) so that you can start your day with self-made breakfast. Coffee is provided in the lobby from 7-9am.

About a 20 minute walk to downtown where all the bars are so you don't have to worry about drinking and driving

A perfect place!

We stay in Monterey alot - usually at the best value hotels. This place has been remodeled & the rooms are very comfortable & super clean. It's a great value for the price. the location is central is if you don't have to be on the ocean. Easy to get to anywhere - especially the airport. The staff is excellent & friendly. I highly recommend this hotel!

Monterey hotel deal

The room was very clean and looked like it was recently remodeled. Very comfortable king bed (firm but with a soft top). Really soft sheets. The receptionist was extremely efficient and had us checked in under 2 minutes! No breakfast (just coffee and tea) but there are plenty of reasonable eateries just a stone's throw away. Highly recommend the Surf Inn!

Many bakeries, restaurants, cafes are close by (a very short drive) in the downtown area, as you head toward the wharf.

Monteray Surf Inn

Great Place to sleep. Mostly quiet except for the usual odd guest that just can't be quiet. Not the host fault at all. The rooms are great, the beds sleep great, the Shower has a great stream so you can get a great rest after a nice shower. Didn't hang at the Inn except to sleep and shower. Close to Cannery Row and the Ocean. Overall a great place to stay.

Old Fisherman's Grotto is amazing. The Fisherman's Wharf sampler is to die for.

overnight stay at the inn

The room was clean, reasonably spacious and ready on time. The hotel rent was around $180 for a single night, which seemed a bit more expensive than what the room/overall hotel looked meant for. Although, Monterey itself is expensive when it comes to hotels, so I guess that drives the prices up. If you need to stay in Monterey, this is a good place, but if you are looking to save a few bucks, stay in a different city.

Quiet Seaside, CA location

Comfortable bed, clean bedding, laminate wood flooring, quaint little family run motel in Seaside just a comfortable drive from the freeway. Recommend it for a quiet get away for a few nights in the Seaside area. Manager accommodated last-minute change to reservation to suit my schedule without additional charge. The bathroom wall could use a little cleaning but appears the family strives to run a nice place.

Misleading Motel Info: No Breakfast; No Room Service

This place was a disappointment. Despite some recent renovations, there was evidence everywhere of neglect and decay. The pool had visible broken concrete on the bottom. Free breakfast was advertised; it did not exist. Room service did not exist: just an ad for restaurants which would deliver there goods, for a price. After the 1st night, our room keys stopped working. This was treated as an ordinary thing. It was not. I did feel welcomed or well served. Its 3 stars should have been 2, maximum.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Cheap, cheap, cheap. Despite the inflated price, the money was not spent on the facility. The ice machine was old and noisy. There was a piece of broken concrete under part of the refrigerator, to attempt to balance it. And the TV had NO public TV stations!
