You need to pay 30 dollars for parking, the place is dirty and so old is falling apart. The bedding was dirty, we needed to have it replaced. For the price we paid, I am sure we would have been better off in a motel. I wonder how other people rated it very highly.

Bed was lumpy and any little movement on the bed the headboard would pound on the wall. Water pressure was horrible.

Our room was great for the value. The hotel is convenient to restaurants. We ate at Kuma Sushi a couple doors down. It was delicious.

We were excited to stay at Monterey Hotel, but then were disappointed with the way it looked upon arrival. We didn't know some rooms were historic, and some weren't. It's unclear upon booking. The staff was very friendly and helpful upon arrival. When entering the room, the bathroom door was stuck and we had to get someone to come open it for us. The TV wasn't set up and we also had to get someone to help with that. The bathrooms could be updated and they were very warm. The hotel experience could've been better overall.
