Remodeling so very nice

Posted Jun 26, 2015
This hotel is better than you would think. Staff was very courteous & helpful. During my stay they were in the midst of remodeling and my room was brand new. Very nice & clean. Breakfast was adequate & good location. Close to running trail & close walk to the beach.

Nice place but it was under construction. Expedia never mentioned this. Limited parking, noisy during the day. Construction workers made us uncomfortable with their staring.

Nice hotel, that is being remodeled. Only item I didn't really like is the bathroom doors are on a roller track (the barn door type look) so when you close the door there is a gap, you could see into the bathroom still from the sides. We felt there was no privacy.

Slightly updated room at a budget hotel

Posted May 4, 2015
The updated room at La Quinta Monterey is pleasant enough but by no means upscale. It is still feels like a budget hotel/motel with very limited service. It is a good place to stay if you only looking for comfortable bed in a roomy clean room. Look elsewhere if you want a fancier hotel for your vacation. The location is a little out of the way from most attractions. There are no shuttle service so having a car is a must. The only problem I had with the room is really the noise. La Quinta is seated right by the highway and you will likely hear noises all night long. If you are a light sleeper you won't be happy.

Total hotel under renovation

Posted Apr 17, 2015
Pros: The beds were very comfortable.
Cons: Advanced notification of renovations by hotel and expedia.
We were shocked to find the entire hotel under renovation when we arrived. We stayed because it was late and at the end of a two week vacation. At least half of the rooms on each of the three floors were being renovated. Our room was incomplete. It was missing a desk, towel racks and the toilet leaked. The carpet was stained and old. It was painted, had new drapes and new beds. While we were pleased with the 12:00 checkout, the hammers started at nine. We felt we should have been given a discounted rate for our room under the circumstances which is what the manager though we had been given when I talked to him at checkout. We paid Expedia directly and paid the posted price. We had never stayed in a La Quinta before. We will be cautious next time. They did not have any posted handicap parking in their parking garage.

Very good location and easy freeway access

Posted Feb 20, 2015 on Hotels
An older motel, which is being upgraded, but very convenient to everything and with close and easy freeway access. The breakfast is a plus, good choices, ready by 6am, and great way to start the day.

Okay but has road noise.

Posted Feb 15, 2015 on Hotels
It was noisy because it is right on the freeway but we weren't bothered by the noise too much. It's an older hotel but clean. We were comfortable here.
