compact place, compact price

The room was very nice and clean. The location was a little hard to find in the middle of the jumble of the freeways. Too far from the good vies and beach. If I have another chance to visit that area, I'll choose a hotel near seaside.

Quick weekend stay for a wedding

The hotel staff were so polite and accommodating. The housekeepers did a nice job tidying up the room while we were out. The breakfast was much more than I expected...eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, bagels, pancakes, sweet rolls, etc. All hot and/or fresh with a selection of beverages, both hot and cold. Although located near Highway 101, I did not hear any freeway noise during the night. Overall, a very nice experience.

monterey getaway

We planned a last minute getaway on a 3 day weekend and found this motel to be very clean and affordable. Only 25 minutes from Monterey. Enjoyed the stay, right off the 101 and easy to get to. But don't go for the pool and jaccuzi, not very well maintained.

good hotel, so so location.

nice hotel, indoor pool, ok comp. breakfast, quiet location, but nothing around it. Located at the end of a dead end road that only has gas stations and about ten other hotels on it. plan on driving a ways to find restaurants, shopping, or sights. If you need to stay in this immediate area this is the place to stay, but if not stay closer to the coast.

Weekend getaway....

We were late booking our trip and couldn't find anything at all in Carmel or Monteray! We decided to stay here because it looked nice, they had a hot breakfast included in the room fee, and it was a half hour from the destination we wanted, The location is close to the freeway, not a very picturesque neighborhood but the hotel is right next to a field that is actually very nice to look at (we had a room facing that). I can't say enough good things about the hotel itself however!! The room was beautiful, perfectly clean, had very nicely designed furniture (like a night stand that doubles as a table). The staff was very friendly and accomodating and it was really a nice hot breakfast with eggs, biscuits, sausage, pancakes and everything else you could want. We actually thought about staying another day just because we liked the room so much! I would definately recommend this hotel.
