Nice motel not far from Monterey Wharf and Cannery Row (you'll need a car though). Clean. Big room with TV, microwave, coffee machine and fridge. Free WiFi with strong signal. Nice pool with hottub in the yard. Simple but good breakfast with waffles maker. Great Value.

The pool was nice and the hot tub was nice. The hotel room was very average and they gave us barely any toiletries, which were very poor quality. They didn't give us a shampoo and a conditioner they gave us a 2-in-1! We had 2 nights booked and when we arrived they said we only had 1 night booked and...

We stayed for 3 nights. I wasn't expecting anything fancy and knew we basically would only be there to sleep. There was no a/c but didn't need it. They did have a large oscillating fan that did the trick. A dorm sized fridge and microwave were handy. The bed was ok. Definitely not Hilton pillowtop quality. Furniture is old, carpet...

We were on a budget and in the high season, but this place is below average. Ok, the room was fairly clean and the hot tub outside warm, but that's about it. The shower was leaking and it was impossible to wash oneself properly. Internet was really slow. The room was not cleaned until 3.30 pm - what was the...

Stayed 3 nights at this hotel with a group of people traveling from SoCal. Staff went out of their way to ensure that our stay was pleasant. Breakfast selection could be improved as it was straight carbs, waffles, toast, and cereal, though they did have apples. Pool and hot tub were a nice amenity. Rooms were outdated but overall clean....

Owners did nothing. As we were walking out others were complaining too. The owners even continued talking over me when I was trying to speak. No refund given. Rediculous that I have to drive home feeling dirty for 3 hours.

We enjoyed our stay at this inn.

This is my favorite reasonably priced hotel in Monterey. The rooms have light colored walls and furnishings. It's very clean. Not brand new but very well kept.
