Recent guest reviews

Hotel was ok .. Wi-Fi was slow .room was difficult to find .. not much staff available for help .. breakfast was tasty but staff was rude .. not helpful people.. room was small .. sink was leaking .. bathroom lock not working ... ac heater was not working properly .. should be ok for one night .. not recommending and visiting again

Overall a positive experience and would stay here again. You get what you expect for the price, but satisfied with how clean the room looks, which is exactly what I needed for a weekend getaway. Room was also quiet overall despite having the airport nearby. Only cons - some of the staff. Checkin was a little difficult - guess im not used to not being able to check in until 3pm because they don’t have rooms available. Also wanted to buy aquarium tickets but was told by one of the staff that I couldn’t if I don’t checkin. A little annoying when the only reason that I couldn’t check in was they didn’t have rooms emptied and cleaned up by the time I arrived (around noon). some other staff eventually helped me out. I wish everybody there was that friendly and helpful.

We stayed here during Monterey Car Week and other than the heater getting stuck on because the room thermostat was not working properly, everything about the stay was fine. The breakfast was OK because I love hard-boiled eggs and they're easy to take to the room. The staff was excellent about the heater problem and took care of it right away by pulling the circuit breaker so that our heater wouldn't cook us. The weather was warm so we didn't need heat anyway, however, there's no A/C or fan which would have been helpful. The price was reasonable for car week, especially since every other hotel was twice as much!

very comfortable and convenient - pleasant setting by the pool -

great hotel to stay, clean rooms...nice staff...we enjoyed our stay here...

We originally booked a 2 queen room for my spouse and 3 kids (5, 5, and 1) with the idea that we'd put the youngest in the pack in play and just make due. When we got there they had upgraded us to a 3 bed suite at no extra charge and it was WONDERFUL. This is not what I expected at all. The beds were super comfortable, everything was clean and tidy. The kids loved being able to watch Disney Channel on tv while getting ready in the morning and the complimentary breakfast and actually decent. Also, the staff went ABOVE AND BEYOND by finding me ingredients lists for the food as my youngest has both a wheat and dairy allergy and I wanted to be sure we got her a good breakfast before our trip to the aquarium that day. They were so kind and helpful. I'm so glad we gave Travelodge a chance and we will certainly be bringing our family back!

The staff at checkin were friendly. The bathroom had hairs all over it. They cleaned it and I found more. The rooms were big and it is nice they have a fridge.

I had very good experience with this hotel!!! For the price we paid $60, it was awesome !! The beds were so comfy and room was very spacious. We also had balcony. Don't care for breakfast, it was only muffins, fruits, oatmeal and boiled eggs. The service was very good . Clean rooms. Will definitely come back!

See title. Enjoyed the area, but glad we only stayed at the hotel one night.

clean room, spacious, comfortable beds suitable for vacation and business tripp

Nice breakfast. It would be helpful if back gate were accessible by key card

After confusion with the booking and an attempt to cancel 36 hours ahead of time the proprietor coldly chose to charge my credit card (after her assitant said she would cancel once Orbitz did). Ouch.

It was nice, the breakfast not amazing but it didn't leave me hungry.

It was good experience hotel staff are fiendly, breakfast is good room was clean, bed are comfortable!

Room is booked for 2 persons. Why only one chair in the room available? The pillows are terrible for olders. Poor breakfast.

Just stopped here while driving though. Staff was very nice. Room and grounds were very clean. Would stay again.

Old motel. Stairs everywhere and no ramps for the handicapped. Only had one handicap hotel room with only one bed. Bugs in our bathroom. Carpet was old and stretched out which made a tripping hazzard. Pool was supposed to be heated so we jumped in and froze our skin off. Won't stay there again! There did have a great continental breakfast.

better than i expected location is away from monterey a little bit but that's okay just a place to sleep and breakfast

Great. The room was very close to the pool and lobby. and we had a good view of the pool and garden.

It was difficult to get a better hotel in Monterey during 4th of July weekends. But this hotel was available. Sounds of plane above the hotel and sounds of kids in pool was disturbing. Breakfast in the morning was minimal. Room was clean, but no AC in the room. Bath towels with holes were available in the room to be used. Bad TV reception in the room. Slow wireless connectivity.
