we're traveling with 2 kids and a guest. we had a hard time finding a room that can accommodate our needs at a reasonable price in monterey. this hotel has one suite unit with a king bed and a room with a double. bathroom is shared. room is a
little dingy and floor creaks but everything is acceptable.
Very basic but nice. Heater did not work properly...either on (90 degrees) or off (50 degrees). great Location, good bed and bath. key stopped working and office closed...nobody around. Another property where staff live on-site, so I banged on
some windows and luckily got is solved. would not stay again...many other choices within a couple hundred yards.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
nice wallking distance from mall and downtown. 15-20 mins gets you a lot of places.
For Monetery, its exactly what you pay for. Location was good and price was good. it was a cold weekend and room was cold (the heater did nto work the greatest). Could hear the party on the first floor really well (which was a bit annoying at 4
am). And we had a very big black spider sharing our room with us. Breakfast was a joke
The hotel was well situated, up the hill and slightly away from the Downtown and Fisherman's Wharf areas, making it relatively quiet. Walls were thin, couldn't quite hear the conversations being spoken in the next room, but could definitely hear
the sound of voices. Very spacious room for the price. Was impressed overall.
The motel staff was friendly when we called for directions while traveling up the 101. We arrived late, but the manager was ready for us. Check-in/check-out was fast. The continential breakfast was adequate (cereal, muffins/danish, milk, juice
and coffee. It was enough to start our day. Great location. It's a short drive to all the tourist attractions in Monterey and a stones throw away from the Del Mar shopping center. The only downside to this motel is that parking is limited and the spaces are small.
It's okay for a night's rest; borders on being pricy for such a room; room was fairly clean but could use some mondern amanities/upgrade such as AC unit & windows; reasonable size bath but somewhat small room; staff was polite; checked in after
11pm; left next day;did not see or use pool.
