My sincerest apologies to you for our lack of response to your "Good bye" We ensure we greet every guest upon arrival and upon departure. The only time we may not be able to respond is when we are on a phone call taking private credit card information for a future reservation. I have spoken to all of my staff...

The lodge is very convenient to restaurants, shopping, churches and most of all Fisherman's Wharf. No breakfast but a discount was offered at a near by restaurant ( Kathy's) was great. Carpet was being installed in rooms but they were gone by 5:00. Clean, good bed and we liked the shower no tub.

Formerly El Adobe Inn is a great place to stay, it is clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. Misha the new manager and daughter of the owners has been on a remodel campaign and has really improved the rooms. I stay with them monthly, have for the past 2 years and never had anything but a positive experience. I highly...

This was the cheapest place we booked along our west coast trip from LA to SF - about $100/night/room. I was initially anxious to see what would be there for us on arrival after a bad experience in San Simeon ( which had also been rated highly on Trip Advisor) but was pleasantly surprised, and relieved, upon arrival. We had...

The location is good, there are several restaurants and markets also gas stations around. The room is clean and fine for the family. The staff is helpful. I like the plants and the beautiful flowers outside. However, it is a little overpriced during July.

Pleasantly surprised by this quaint hotel. Our room was very clean and comfy. Surprisingly we could see the ocean from our room. Location is close enough to walk downtown, to the wharf and even cannery row. Parking in Monterey can be challenging so walking is a nice option. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very reasonable rates which included wi-fi...

It is located within a walking distance from the centre and to the mall. The room was quite large and attractive with a modern bathroom. It was clean and cosy. The staff went out of the way to help. It is great is you have a car.

Very clean and walking distance to amenities. A bit far from main Monterey area... About 30 minutes walk to aquarium and sights. The room was clean and staff friendly. Not many amenities nor anything special. But it's tastefully decorated and feels perfectly fine. Low maintenance rental with comfortable place to sleep and rest on the coastal drive from San Fran...

Great location within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf, Farmer's Market, and Cannery Row. Cannery Row was a bit of a hike, but we needed the walk after all the meals out! Excellent value for the area. We were happy that we chose to stay there over the Carmel area. We had a queen bed with a twin for our college...
