Recent guest reviews

The room is really nice and the beds are comfortable. They provide the shampoo and body gels with lotion so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Just relax and enjoy your stay. Parking was a little challenging because the hotel was full. However, the overflowing parking can be accommodated with the Gusto restaurant next door. Problem solved!

The property was easy to get to just off the freeway and easy access to places to shop.

Didn't know what to expect at first. Glad to find our room was clean and comfortable with amenities as described. Great location! Walking distance to the beach, food and shopping area. Just right for us and would definitely stay again.

Absolutely love it. So nice, cozy, and friendly. Everyone come here!

I figured that this hotel would be small & cheaply decorated, but to my surprise, it was really nice & homey! I loved it!

Okay for the price, sheets were dirty/stained. Towels were decent. Staff was nice. Probably wouldn't go back.

Management was good, he provided me a room right next to my vehicle when I parked so it made it convenient to just grab my stuff right into the room. Waffles are pretty good and it's a plus that it comes with complimentary breakfast from 7-9:30am.

We have stayed here during the memorial day weekend. The rooms are clean and big. The complimentary breakfast is OK. They have refrigerator and microwave in each room which was very convenient. I will stay here again.

It is not the best inn in Monterey. The wall mounted TV in the room was nice, other than that the room was not that special. The furnitures in the room seem a bit old and the room smell weird too. I probably will find another place next time. It is definitely not worth $140/night. There are probably better ones around that area.

while driving up the 1, we stayed at the Sand Castle Inn for 1 night. The room was clean, spacious and comfy. At night, it wasn't too loud or anything, so I'd definitely recommend. Also, the room offers a fridge and a microwave

Your ordinary motel. Definitely not a romantic getaway location, but quite adequate for crashing before your Monterey adventures. A bit pricey for what you get, but then everything in the area is pricey. The room was clean, had a flatscreen TV, there was free WiFi. There was complimentary coffee/juice/pastries/waffles for breakfast.

Room rates were competitive than other hotels in the area. The room appears recently remodeled with granite bathroom floor and around tub. The carpet appears new as well. The bed seemed old but ok. The big plus was having a flat screen TV, a microwave and a fridge in the room. ...but no coffee maker. Would be nice if the host would direct me to the location of my room more specifically, tell me about the hrs for breakfast, and the password to wifi when I checked in instead of me calling up later and ask. TV remote & telephone were filthy! Dresser was a bit old and drawers did not slide out easily. Quality of soap and shampoo were poor so bring your own. But for the price, it was very acceptable and I would stay there again. (not sure if all the rooms have.been remodeled.)

The room was good but they don't change the sheets or clean under the bed I found a empty beer bottle under my bed.

I was passing through town and needed a clean room for the night. It did the job.

The room was a little small for 2 people, no hot water in the vanity, but overall it was acceptible considering the cost. However, we were unable to get a smoking room.

Small cozy, clean, rooms at this hotel, but they need to go to 2-ply toilet paper and upgrade other toiletries. No elevators makes it harder to get luggage to second floor rooms.

The location is very convenient and the hotel was quiet. I have no complaint at all.

We spent most of our time at the Spirt West Coast Festival at Laguna Seca. We would of loved have a coffee pot and coffee even thou a continetal breakfast was offered. We've stayed at this Hotel before, People were nice and helpful.

Small room, but clean and comfortable, with all the modern conveniences (color TV, fridge, microwave, clothes iron, and hair blow-dryer.) Easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, and the beach!

Just spent the night there passing through. Okay place, but don't bother with the breakfast room.
