It was about 5 minutes away from the peir(driving), right off the freeway that will connect you to surrounding cities like Carmel, friendly staff, offers free coffee and tea. Fairly clean, beds are hard, heated pools but other all not to bad for the price.

It is apparent that the Monterey Surf Inn has been recently painted, here are a few problems. The room had one chair, an old worn out office chair. There was one task light and no lamps. The toilet seat had to be repaired before it could be used, We stayed 2 days and housekeeping provided 1 face washcloth and 2 each hand towels and bath towels, were we supposed to share the washcloth? The king size bed was adorned with a mattress that had to be an original. It had more lumps than the Sierra Nevada Mountains have foothills. The room lacked a table and chairs other than the fore mentioned office chair that the vinyl upholstery had warn through to the substrate on both arms and the headrest. The missing table and chairs would be useful if you chose to use the microwave to heat and eat anything in the room. The transition between the laminated wood floor and the granite tile of the washbasin area had a strip of exposed thin metal that was bent in places up that would result in cuts to your feet and toes if you are not careful.
