Americas Best Value Presidents Inn on Munras

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Had to call to have light bulbs replaced. The only electric wall receptical that my laptop and phone charger would stay in was the one in the bathroom - a bit inconvenient.

Slightly dated rooms, but clean and peaceful. Gets the job done.

Staff was unaccomadating for such an over priced place.

Hotel grounds were clean and pleasing to the eye. Exterior paint and lighting was fresh and clean. Staff were very helpful with needs as far as directions to local places.

I didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel because this was a business trip.

It was ok, room was clean and the location good. I would stay there again if the rates were good. 2.5-3 stars

This is a basic family hotel, which exceeded my expectations. The pool and jacuzzi were delightful. The continental breakfast was ample. The location was convenient for shopping, visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium and easy access to the freeway.

They don't have A/C so if you don't want to die in the sweltering heat, skip this place. We stayed twice, once in December and once in September. December was awesome. We sat on the balcony every evening, temperature was perfect. In Sept., the room was stuffy and unbearable. Staff is super friendly and while the hotel doesn't look like much, the rooms are clean and the second floor balconies are great!

SHOCKED at how outdated the room was and the deep dirt in the room. My white socks were filthy each day from walking on the carpeting in room 105. The bed was saggy, the windows are older than me, the bathroom door didn't shut and you could hear right through the walls. Worst motel stay to date. The 2nd day of our trip we left early for whale watching at 9, then lunch at the Wharf then back to the motel at 2PM for a nap before our evening activities and the room hadn't been cleaned yet. DONT STAY HERE! $478.67 for 3 nights. Highway robbery!

Best price / location for last minute New Year's Eve booking in Monterey. Staff was very friendly.

A short vacation trip to Monterrey was made even more pleasant with a stay here. It's a good deal for the money, not a place full of frills but that isn't what I wanted or wanted to pay for. It was clean, quite friendly, quiet(important to me), walking distance to everything (I like to walk), good neighborhood, easy parking. Only minor drawback was the hot tub was being cleaned that day but it was also in the middle of winter-very minor issue and working the next day, I took a nice hot shower. I'd definitely will stay here again!

Stayed here before. It offers decent rooms and is well located with shopping close by and a mile to the ocean and less to historic district.

For the price I had expected an out of the way motel with limited parking and noisy rooms. I was surprised to discover that the room was large and bright although a bit dated. The hotel is on a very busy street, however the noise level is lessened by the setback of the buildings. Breakfast was included and was satisfying. Overall, I highly recommend staying here if parking, cleanliness and reasonable pricing are your priorities.

The room I had had two beds and was quite large. The breakfast food, consisting of boiled eggs and waffles and so on, was good. The computer in the lobby was fast. The hotel was located in a good, safe neighborhood, walking distance to both the mall and downtown Monterey. A very safe area for families. Unfortunately, I could hear the traffic, not the waves, at night, if I opened my window. And the hotel in kind of old. The bathroom tile was dirty; walking on it got my feet dirty.

The location is excellent, near the Del Monte Mall in Monterey and close enough to downtown that you can walk, yet the hotel/motel is in a prosperous neighborhood. The traffic is the only bad thing about the location, but all of the properties on Munras Ave suffer that fate. Even so, with the everything closed, I don't hear the traffic much. The hot tub is big but could be hotter. The gym isn't much, of course. I see people swimming in the pool, so it must be warm enough for them. The breakfast, which includes boiled eggs, is pretty good. The cable channels are plenty. The lobby has a computer that works and a printer. And the parking is good. I don't like the bed covers for some reason, so I took them off and use just the sheet. The property is a little old seeming, but it's not depressing or anything.

Due to car show/auction room prices were double and triple average rates ,this place was clean but other than that a complete Rip off but that's all we could locate for 3 couples -3 rooms and we paid dearly -no air ,1950 wall style heaters worn out stained carpet, just a rip off and they knew it ,I told them I would not had rented the rooms if I knew there was no a/c and they simply replied the rooms don't need I ,no one's fault but mine for waiting so long,that's what you get when their rated 2 star and that's being liberal!!!

Floor was dirty, walls paper-thin, no AC, rooms in desperate need of updating. Staff was nice enough, but nice staff doesn't make up for a grungy motel.

The room is nice, but the bathroom doesn't feel private because the window is almost transparent and people can walk right by. The view is nice, though. And the location is excellent, being a short walk from the mall and a short ride from downtown.

A good place to stay for à small price. Easy to find, nice staff, easy parking and a good room for an overnight stay. Just what we were looking for.

Hair still in the tub (not from us), hot tub green water, half used shampoo bottle, heater did not work, hot water was absent, hair dryer didn't work.
