Laurel Inn Motel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It's ok for this money! The neighborhood does not look safe but it was quit. The room was ok for 1 night of staying!

A nice clean place to stay. Close to the freeway but far enough away to not hear traffic. Decent continental breakfast in a large clean eating area.

Nice surprise compared to some others we stayed within same price range. Quiet. Desk help was professional and helpful.

For a non-luxury hotel, this is as good as it gets. The "structure" is not new, but inside the rooms everything is there and spotless. It appears that this is one place where the hypothetical aspirations of hotel perfection, are mostly met by the hotel's staff and management. The free breakfast and food contributed to the positive experience. I'd stay here again, should the occasion present itself.

Stayed during bike races at Laguna Seca 2 nights clean and quiet. Very friendly and accommodating staff.

We arrived later than normal, and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was a basic continental fare, consisting of breads and cereals. The AC was loud, which I loved! The bed was a little hard, but the pillows were soft. Very clean.

Have stayed here multiple times - nice place, conveniently located, decent breakfast, decent restaurant on the premises, nice staff, cookies in the lobby, good value - but the beds are like sleeping on a rock! This last time I just couldn't get comfortable. If you're okay with a very firm mattress, you should be fine.

it's what we expected it to be as per online description. keep up the good work.

The hotel was nice had a good feel needs tv upgrades the free breakfast is only cereal and breads but hey its free

50's style motel. Nothing fancy OK value...............

Really admired how efficient and well-run this classic motel was. The women at reception were perfect. The place was packed, and the walls are thin, but I still slept like the dead here. As a basic motel the do everything really well, and the pool was a big plus. I thoroughly recommend.

Nosiest air conditioner ever! Bed was paper thin mattress, hard, refrigerator noisy also. Didn't interact with any staff other than the continental breakfast person, which was nice. Would not stay here again.

Loved the outdoor pool and jacuzzi. Breakfast was a little crowed but worth it. Would definitely stay there again!!

Best travel motel in California. Clean as a whistle and super convenient

For the money it was by far the best we stayed at on our trip. We were staying at budget hotels. For the price it was the quietest, and cleanest room on our trip. I would for sure stay there again if in the area. Also a nice breakfast set up.

I needed a place close to Laguna Seca to stay for the night and this was a solid choice. Staff was friendly, and it was only about 20 minutes to get to the track the next morning. Just as convenient as Monterey at half the price. The outdoor spa was small and only sorta warm, but other than that I was happy with my decision.

Kodos to the front desk, She was very helpful. We had the connection rooms for four of us.

Hotel was clean, quite, good breakfast, good location

Everything very clean and maintained. Safe area. Friendly helpful staff. Good breakfast experience. Well appointed rooms.

We stayed in this hotel in May. The staff was very competent we were a large group with several rooms. They put all our rooms together. The breakfast is quite good, and there is a restaurant/quality diner in their parking lot.
