We showed up at 4pm to check in to our hotel but were told our room wasn’t ready due to recent renovations. At that time there was a “maid”, a guy wholooked to be a manager, and a worker who looked to be the one doing the renovations in our room. We left and went about our evening and returned at 12:15 am. When we returned, we found our door open, lights on, the “manager” outside our room in a chair on watch, and the maid and two crackheads in our room in our bed. The maid came out of the room claiming she was showing the other two individuals the newly remodeled room (at 12:15am in a booked room). When my husband became irritated, the manager guy and the guy doing the remodeling retreated to both rooms on each side of our room (yet we were told all other rooms were booked). The entire situation was odd and felt like something out of a horror movie. I called to speak to a manager but the maid answered the phone. I have been told i cannot get my money back and if we came back they wound call the cops because we were causing problems. This hotel is definitely not on the up and up and I would highly advise anyone to not book here.

My stay at Lone Oak Lodge was an excellent value for the cost. Check in was quick and professional. I was given a recently-remodeled room (king bed, non smoking), and thanks to the awesome staff, it was sparkling clean! No carpet, which was great, shutters instead of curtains, and a brand new climate control unit. I did not use the TV or wifi, so can't review reception or connection strength. The bed was comfortable and I had no problem sleeping. In fact, I slept so well I didn't hear any car noise from the parking lot and was surprised next morning how many people had arrived since I went to sleep. The only thing the room needed was a place to hang things. I would absolutely stay here again.

had a family of five traveling--reserved the big family room. it turned out great. lighting, beds, bathroom, everything was nicely thought out, appointed, and organized. even small things like the cabinet hinges (slow close), kitchen items to warm up food with, and placement of plugs was all great. much appreciated. small notes: they have solar panels galore to help keep things green. appreciated. and the bed quality was SUPERB. i think they might have been high end foam mattresses. they did not have playpacks/cribs to borrow so we were able to bring our own. no pool either (we just went to the beach near the dennis the menace playground instead). the location is near seaside which has a ton of chains and great mexican restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, and donut stores.

it’s not a five star hotel but it’s Clean if you’re just looking to sleep this is the place. Close to Ocean water activity movie theater and places to eat nearby. Oh and I forgot to mention Big Sur is nearby about a 30 minute drive. If you’re looking to go to Napa Valley well that’s only three hours more from here

Everything is new, awesome check-in and shower but the hungers didn’t arrive yet…! We will definitely stay again especially when the hungers will be in place. A true motor lodge with good accessibility and parking, walking distance to stores and restaurants, only one direction of entry but easy to get in and out.

I stayed only one night in a regular room with a queen sized, comfortable bed. Check-in was fast and efficient. The room was newly renovated, clean, and well equipped with a blowdryer, coffee maker, and toiletries.. However, the reason I checked out and chose to stay the next 3 nights in a different hotel was the noise. My neighbors were up until after 1am talking loudly outside my room and lighting off fireworks. I was afraid to ask them to keep it down because I was staying by myself and did not really feel safe to talk to them. The front desk was only steps away but, they have only limited hours. The next morning by 7am there were other families packing up there cars, slamming doors, and talking loudly. I am not a light sleeper but, it was hard to sleep. This is a motel so some noise is expected but, it was enough to not make me want to stay there again.

Stayed in the Queen w Full Kitchen. Comfortable bed and pillows, good shower pressure and hot water. Older, being renovated. Oven was fantastic, easy to use. Fridge was a good size, was able to store 5 days of food and ice packs easily. Separate rooms made it feel like an apartment. Overall a quiet place to stay. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Loved that there was only a neighbor on one side and a true motor lodge: no upstairs! Walking distance to Safeway, CVS, Walgreens, and a very short walk to a couple good restaurants we tried, Sushi on the Bay and Monterey Cookhouse. Only downside was that there is only one direction of entry so you may need plan which way you're turning in if you're towing a trailer or RV, but parking is convenient for most vehicles and easy to get in and out of the lot itself.

Pros: Newly renovated floors, paint and crown molding, very comfortable beds, bathroom including walk in shower, wall mounted TV with great cable selection, refrigerator and microwave all at a GREAT rate! They also have a spa and sauna room. Cons: The furniture is worn and there is nowhere to hang clothes. My wife and I very much appreciated all the updates and our 3 night stay. We will definitely use them again on next visit to the area!

Two nights in a room with paper thin walls.. heard the neighbor kids thumping and squealing around until after midnight. Dark room with 25 watt bulbs in the lights that DID work. Ceiling fan non-operational. Plug in fan smelled like burning plastic once it finally worked and sounded like an ailing jet engine. Wall A/C vibrated the entire room when it kicked in. Coffee pot missing parts/no instructions on use. Vinyl/tile floors and 4 chairs on casters do not work. Unstable when trying to sit down or trying to stand. Mattress was deplorable with a wrap around feature a la burrito, probably 10 years past its Best By date. Miserable for sleeping . One thin blanket. 1" difference between main room and bathroom floor, so each time in or out was either a trip hazard or surprise drop down to the next level. Counted 14 mattresses leaning against the fence outside the bathroom window, great for rodents and/or bugs. Never again. Had to cut our trip short by one day due to miserable accommodations. . Seemed clean. No road noise. But, very uncomfortable stay. One stained rickety old plastic chair positioned outside the front door for outdoor "enjoyment"
