  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Clean, good area. The front desk guy wasn't very friendly or welcoming and it was a little expensive $225/nt, but the room had 3 queen beds and 1 bedroom and was clean and the pool was nice. Nice facilities, good location.

  • Disliked: Amenities

Served the purpose for a night. Had to park on the street as premise parking was full. Staff asked if we had a toilet plunger for them to use for a nearby room (odd). Just picture the not so pretty side of Monterey and you’ll get a sense of where this motel fits in. A/C and heat worked well. Water got hot enough. Bed comfort was decent.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The three beds were perfect for us and the room is big and clean despite COVID restrictions. The staff is nice and helpful. The location is closed to downtown, Fisherman Whatf and restaurants. Lots of places to visits.

Needed an inexpensive hotel in Monterey for two nights. This one worked for the task at hand. Rooms are very small......

They have upgraded the rooms and they look and feel very nice and clean. It is conveniently located near lots of food and not too far from the Warf.
