You really need to remove this place from your recommendations. It was awful. Dirty and stained carpets, smelled bad. The woman at the front desk was so rude. No coffee on premises anywhere. No continental breakfast. No air conditioning, everything in room was old and very dated. Small tv. Couldn't get wifi to stay connected. By far the worst experience.... More

Don't stay here! Plenty of better places that don't charge for every little thing an aren't rude, like Travelodge or Days Inn. Days Inn was full so they sent us here. The lady who helped us was hard to understand but we thought we understood all the extra fees that may apply. We were explained that there would be a... More

Old and needs updating into the 21 century,, Landscape is very creative- but this is far from the rooms which are rented. There are undercover fees such as 2.50 a phone call- local and a dollar a day for just visiting and staying overnight. If you have a pet- you are out of luck when is comes to hotels- unless... More

If you enjoy grimey walls, holes in your sheets, plugs that are loose and spark when you connect anything into them, a tv from 1975 and a shower that backs up and turns into a mini pond then the Monterey Fireside Lodge is for you. For 138 dollars a night you too can have the experience of staying in a... More

I recently stayed at the Fireside and what a mistake. A complete misrepresentation on the internet. Let's start with the advertised air conditioned room. There was NO air conditioning. No mistake...just fraud. The motel is more of a residential motel. Although it was steaming hot without air conditioning,I was afraid to leave my windows open for fear the gang members... More

Beware of this property!! Pictures and description on-line and over the phone are nothing like the actual room. Fireplaces do not work and when I asked about the kitchenette only having a sink and stove top knobs removed I was told it was due to fire department code enforcement. Carpet was beyond filthy and little refrigerator smelled so sour that... More

The faux-leather dining room chair was peeling. The small ikea table with elementary-school style chair had a single harsh overhead light that made it feel like an interrogation room. The king-size mattress was the least comfortable "bed"-like horizontal surface I have ever slept on. My wife got up in the middle of the night and slept on the (random) twin... More

I booked a room at this motel based on Trip Advisor ratings and reviews. For the price it was not what I had expected. We, myself and two smallish dogs, had a larger than average but basically a generic motel room. For the price, $218, I expected better. The mattress was covered with plastic that loudly crinkled whenever I sat... More

When booking this room, I was assisted by a very gracious and helpful employee at the front desk. Her name is Shin and her hospitality and courtesy are the primary reasons that I booked this hotel. All customer service representatives could learn from this woman. Hats off to her. Thank you.
