Room was clean, bed mattress was comfortable. Parking is very limited. Bed frame was very cheap and noisy. New bath fixtures with body wash, shampoo, etc do not work.

This inn needs some renovations, especially given the price. The bed was just ok. Black mold growing at the bottom area where the shower door slides and the whole room needs a face-lift. And, someone kept slamming the door. That was startling. It's close enough to walk to downtown so the location is not bad. Bottom line... would I stay again? No!

Quiet location and easy drive to shops and restaurants. Our room was not immaculately clean; the floor tiles particularly could use some good mopping. When we arrrived the TV in the room was hanging at a strange angle from the wall - the wall attachment had partially come loose. Upon calling the front desk, someone came up to assess the situation and fix it in a timely manner. The lighting in the rooms was too stark, bright white, instead of soft yellow. The fan in the bathroom was loud and could not be turned off as long as the light was on. It looks like the property was more recently renovated, but unfortunately this was not done with quality materials and workmanship.

The room was beautiful, clean, and a quiet place. I stayed here with my children and they loved it. We booked here a second time because it was so nice and definitely will make this the place we stay anytime we come to Monterey. The front desk is so friendly and welcoming as well!

I liked the new decor. Apparently they redocorated and it looks really nice. They were very accommodating when I needed a bottle opener. Rooms are clean. They could use some extras like lotion but I would definitely stay here again.

Upon check-in, we received a warm welcome from the inn owner. We stayed with our dog in a newly renovated room on the first floor. The lack of pet odor in a pet-only room was a pleasant surprise! We did have an issue with the bathroom sliding door. It did not always glide smoothly along the rail. Our fingers got jammed attempting to close the door shut due to the poor placement of the door handle. I would recommend fixing this issue to avoid potential injury to future customers. We could also hear footsteps and voices on the second floor, but turning on the TV would easily drown out the noise. As mentioned in another review, we would have preferred warm color bulbs over white ones for better ambiance. We loved the cleanliness, shower, parking, and walking distance to downtown. The price, room, and location made it an excellent value for us, and we would consider staying here again.
