Monterey Fairgrounds Inn
Ranked #56 of 56 Hotels in Monterey
Reviewed 29 July 2017 via mobile

We booked the inn with the price of at least 3 stars hotel due to the peak season. When we arrived we were so shock to see the condition of the room. It's run down and it looks more like an old hut rather than a room! Shabby and all the facilities were not working well too. I'm not a very picky person but this is too much for me. I didnt even feel comfortable to put my body on the bed, afraid if it's not clean. Hairs in bathroom and trash on the kitchen. Not recommended at all.

This motel is barely a step above camping. Only one outlet worked in the entire room, everything in the bathroom was stripped from the walls, and there was no hot water available until the last day of our stay. One of the missing things from the bathroom wall was a hair dryer. After my cold shower, I asked the front desk if they had an extra hair dryer and the person behind the desk said they would be able to locate one in a few…hours. It is without a doubt the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

This place is seriously a joke. The price for this room should be 29.99 at most. Jacuzzi was broke, telephone didn't work in the room. Dirty carpet, saggy bed, dirty bathroom had soap from others on the shower even. All around a craphole. Don't stay here

I don't know where the other reviewers normally stay, but for the price, this is on par with what you would get anywhere. The room was clean. The interior was dated and the bed was not the best, however, definitely sleepable. The water pressure was okay and I really had no issues. As long as you don't expect luxury then you won't be disappointed. The wifi is terrible, but then again, cell phone service is terrible out here too.

This motel offers little more than a bed and shower. The room looks cheap and stale. The bed and sheets are old, but clean. The breakfast offered is dry flakes, coffee and juice. I will not stay here again, there are better with similar price in the area.
