Americas Best Value Inn-Seaside South

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We checked in early and the hotel staff promised us the best room. What we found was "ok" so far. The room was spacy and the bed was cozy. The equipment was old and run down. We had problems with the wifi and the only thing the hotel staff did was to give us a number where to call in case of problems. From our perspective, bad service.

I had Prostitute on both side of the room. Room did not have any closet to hang cloths. Therefore had to leave out of bag. I asked If I could cancel was told no. Breakfast is included but it starts after 8:30 am.

If when checking in even the reception area does not want to open the door and have just a glass where you can't hear; that's a red flag. Also there bed was not all that comfortable.

The following room amenities are new: sink, tub, fixtures, carpet, and TV. The room is clean. Staff nicely gives you what you need for more guests. Downside: office smells like an indian restaurant. You'll get out of the office smelling like korma/biryani.

The staff is nice and helpful, but the breakfast is horrible.

Hotel room was very clean and comfortable with all the basics. Hotel is very well located and accessible within minutes to center of attractions.

We were charged extra amount for fifth guest, but no additional arrangements were made. For larger parties, you are better off in a different place.

Chocolate croissant shouldn't have to askfor my my croissant to be warmed up!

Good Location. Price was decent. Room was spacious. Room included 2 mirrors. Room included Fridge, Microwave Flat screen TV. Only down fall was sink seemed clogged, but we contacted front desk right away and they went to check it out.

Oh yes, there were a couple of things I need to mention that I did not say earlier. When going to their website, the pictures are very deceiving, and the only reviews on there were from another travel center not the one we used. I have used that travel center in the past and have been very very pleased--will be using them again! Also I did not see the review I wrote on there when I got back in July 2014.

We were having trouble locating an available room, and a worker at another hotel found this room while I was 50 ft away on the phone with another hotel. My husband misunderstood the guy helping us and consented to allow him to book it through a travel center. Anyway,we were charged $450 for this $40 room!!!!! Yes that's right $450!!!!!! Not only was this highway robbery but --- too!!!!!!!! When I realized what had happened, I immediately started trying to get out of it. I called my card company who gave me the number to the travel center & there was a 49 min. wait time--anyway pictures and more info will be posted in a few weeks. It should be against the law for hotels and travel centers to allow this ---!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hotel was good, room was decent. Location is very close to lot of restaurants. about 3 miles from fisherman warf and everything. Their continental breakfast is a joke. their version of continental breakfast is a bear claw and orange juice. If you don't care about that everything else is fine. I asked for a plastic spoon they said they don't have one.

A bit on the loud side, the walls are to thin or not insulated enough, you can hear to much.

There was not enough parking spaces for the amount of rooms and I had to play musical parking spaces or park in the street; manager was rude; the toilet paper holder and the shower head were loose/falling off; the beds were uncomfortable and the "free" wi-fi did not work at all but if you just need to sleep n go it'll be alright....if you have kids go to Americas Best Value Inn in Monterary they have a pool and hot tub. DO NOT EAT AT PHO KING it's nasty!!!!

I thought that I be prepared to stay in this lodge after all the negative reviews. I brought my own sheets of which was stolen and the Manager would not admit to any loss!!! Very bad customer service !! Towels are not properly washed - brown colored stains are stll on the towels, paper thin walls, no coffee, no clock. Manager should be fired !!!!

stayed here on a weekend, all other motels/hotels cost at least 50% more than what we paid here... pros: bed comfort o.k., location o.k. cons: bathroom really small bathtub was dirty overall not clean (everywhere you have a closer look you find dirt and dust), at least no bed bugs in our room website says it has guest laundry, but it has not staff: young lady (probably daughter of the manager?) that did checkin was very friendly and helpful manager was unfriendly with all further request (guest laundry etc.)

Good value for the price. Stay here to see the Monterey area. Great location. Acceptable room for the price.

Pleasant. Efficient. Honest. Clean. Quiet in the back rooms.

The hotel was ok, shopping and dining were really close, except for I kept finding little bugs on the beds. That kind of ruined our stay.

In comparison to other hotels, I felt that this one was lacking. The location is just about the only thing good about this place. However, for the price it's just about what I expected. For future trips, I wouldn't mind spending a little more to receive a better value in return. Great if your traveling alone or without children.
