El Castell Motel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very good quality for the price. Rooms are small, but in good condition and clean. Breakfast is good. That's all I have to say really, but Orbitz doesn't allow me to post such a short review.

Promised a portable third bed but made a excuse that was a illegal fie hazard, which is not true. Had to rent a two bedroom for more money.

Unfortunately we were at the side that club Gemini is on. Very loud. Also, the seat on the toilet was broken. Would come back, but want to be on the other side of the building

The room was small and reasonably clean. There was no hot water available at the sink, the TV didn't work nor did the room phone.

The room was clean and comfortable although a little small. Water pressure in the sink was poor. The breakfast was minimal and the room was small. With all of the knit-picking, I would not hesitate to stay again.

The price wasn't bad but the room was very small. There were other features that made our stay worse such as the bad plumbing, the air conditioning hardly worked, there were noisy people outside our hotel and though they say the walls are soundproof they really aren't. The only plus about our trip was the time we spent outside of the hotel, not inside.

Love everything about this motel. Great location and very nice staff. Enjoyed swimming in the pool that night. They generously offered 3 extra towels for us. Breakfast was okay. Should have gone for breakfast earlier to beat most of people. Apprarently 8AM is their rush hour.

I will not be staying there again. Called the front desk, could not get them to quiet the room next to us. The carpet made your white socks brown. In the morning I could smell marijuana from the next room.

They were located close enough to everything that didn't notice travel time. I rated it five because for the price versus the quality. You're paying a quite a bit less for a hotel located right next to Monterey. Clean, close to creature comforts, and friendly staff!

It is clean and comfortable. The only problem is the AC/heating system is very noisy.

Location was good for the activities we wanted to do while visiting.

Nice hotel. Large rooms. For the price I would go back again.

Good and clean, friendly but short to make more comments

Easy access to stores and restaurants. For the price, hotel is wonderful.

Place is fine, nothing special. Many hotels along this road. Does have an indoor pool.

The hotel was clean the bed was super comy. Room was spacious, clean, the sheets smelled like lavander, you could tell they clean the rooms thoroughly.

Remodeled, clean, quiet room next to other chain hotels but with a better price. Beds were firm and breakfast was the standard fare but definitely a great deal for the week.

A great location to get everywhere. It's an older motel, but clean and has great staff. Within a mile of the airport, but was not a noisy location. Was a great value for my 8 day stay for a reunion.

Check in was at 3:00 pm I arrived at noon and they let me in right away. Very thoughtful and helpful. Definitely recommend this hotel.

The rooms are nice with a microwave, a frig. and a coffee maker. They are pretty quiet and the free breakfast is nice too. Staff is very friendly.
