This was on the worst hotel stays we have ever experienced. We booked our hotel through hotwire.com. The hotel was old and outdated. The room itself had a very bad odor and needing a lot of details and repair. One of our towels even had an old yellow stain on it. It is a pet friendly hotel, which is why I think the odor and stench were present. The hostess was very nice, but I was too embarrassed to say anything about our stay. I assumed all rooms would be the same given the rating of the hotel. There is a small gas station and convenience store on site, which was nice. However, there was a sketchy crowd of people including homeless ones. I appreciated the live band on the weekends in their little cocktail lounge. We did not visit the on-site restaurant. We did visit the pool and jacuzzi, which also looked like they needed tending and care. Overall, the stay was very poor and we would not consider staying here again.

Wonderful stay with my two dogs for a decent small pet policy fee. In the heart of Monterey made it easy to get to around I get around-get get around! Clean and cute rooms. Incredibly accommodating staff- can’t thank them enough! Very nice soaps too.

Juliana and Leslie were helpful in setting up future reservation. Two other nice desk people helped during our stay, but didn’t get their names. Like that we get the room we request each time and it is roomy with a couch and close to parking area. Look forward to using some of amenities in the future…restaurant, new jazz club etc. Like the Covid protocols respected….took care of our own room, could ask desk for any additional needs etc. We do question why the clothes hanging area was taken away months ago and replaced with a coffee machine which could easily be kept on the desk area. No place to hang clothes. Like having a microwave and refrigerator in the room. Location great to mall, beach, freeway, Carmel, downtown Monterey downtown area. Prices reasonable and love the wall heater!

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend in February. It is very tired and doesn’t meet the standards I expected from Red Lion. There was a poorly repaired water leak and flaking paint on the bathroom ceiling. The room badly needed painting. The furniture was old and scuffed. Construction debris and old air conditioners were arrayed outside. There was an old dusty car in the parking lot which had obviously been there a long time. There are many lodging options in Monterey, including many in the same street. I will choose another one next time.

We made a reservation with them via priceline and the wrong dates were selected. So when we arrived to check in and realized our error, management refused to move our reservation and they counted it a no show. We didn't care to get a refund if we could just get a room for the night - nope. No refund, no place to stay for the night - we just drove home upset. Trip was cancelled; thankfully we only drove 2 hours to get there and 2 hours to get back. The management and the hotel are crooks. They refused to talk to us and would only communicate through the receptionist. They refused to accomodate our situation and decided to punish us for clicking carelessly - customers that already paid -- even though we could have chosen to stay anywhere else, they caught us in this position laughed all the way to the bank. A bunch of low lifes. Seriously -- just go elsewhere.

Hello Explore239372, Thank you for your review, and my apologies for such a late response. I am the new manager here at The Red Lion Monterey. I apologize we weren't able to meet your expectations. Booking through Priceline does make it hard for hotels to be able to help our guests in situations like this. Had we been contacted sooner or possibly while the reservation was made we may have been able to help more. In the future for any bookings for any hotel, it is always the safest bet to book with the hotel itself. I do hope now with new management you will try our hotel again in that we can offer a better experience.

The room was not very clean, the beds like a cement slab, the shower didn't drain properly - we had to fix it so we weren't showering in our soapy water. I called the desk to ask for the location of the ice machine, was sent to the wrong place (evening staff). Checking in and out was a bright spot - friendly staff.

Have stayed at this hotel for years - spent at least five grand doing so; four days at a time, sometimes more, 2-3 rooms at a time sometimes under my name, sometimes under my hubby's. Used to be a quick easy place to stay for day trips to Big Sur. Now the people who run it can't keep reservations straight, rates straight, the truth straight - it's basically a slum hotel with uncaring sloppy management. Too bad because it started out okay. Read the Yelp reviews - they are true to its condition now. I would share details, but there are just too many screw ups - not worth the time it would take to type. We will never return and advise others to beware. There are MANY other hotels around the same rate in Monterey run properly with care.
