I rented 2 rooms because we were in Monterey to take part in a surprise engagement ceremony. The rooms were Junior suites with 2 king size beds in each, microwave, refrigerator, sofa bed (you had to request and pay extra for sofa bed mattress) , and desk. The rooms were immaculate, towels were folded beautifully, the rooms are located next to shopping and fast food areas. No breakfast was included (rightfully so) because of COVID-19 and no cleaning services were given but guests were able to make requests for toiletries and other items as needed. My biggest complaint would be parking! Parking our XL SUV was a tasks in itself- the staff was friendly and helpful with what we needed and questions needed answering. We look forward to visiting again soon. I truly loved it and I highly recommend them

I would definitely stay here again. Hotel was clean. Beds were comfy. They had a microwave and refrigerator in the rooms. Since I was staying more than one night they asked if I wanted to have my room cleaned, I declined but they said if I needed anything to let them know. Mike at the check in was so nice and helpful. The location is close to everything! Highly recommended!

Very enjoyable stay, very clean, staff was helpful. I will be staying here again. I was volunteering for the US Women's Open and it was very easy getting to and from for the event from this location, the price for the location and quality was worth it, thank you.

The clerk at this hotel, Mike, has to be the rudest, nastiest person in the hotel industry.

The rooms are okay, very basic. They are doing remodeling so expect a lot of noise during the day starting at 8:30. The hotel is not following Covid protocols - desk clerks didn't wear masks and the maids are cleaning the rooms with their masks off.

I have travelled to Monterey a lot and my advice is to avoid all the cheap motels on Munras Avenue and go to Pacific Grove or Carmel. Might cost a little more but so worth it.

(1)$300/ night is way overpriced - but it was holiday weekend.
(2) Room was good size but beds were very uncomfortable, hard and old mattress with squeaking springs every move. Woke up with back pain.
(3) Although it’s a non-smoking facility, people were smoking pot with loud music right at the parking lot.
(4) Walls and ceiling are paper thin, you can hear people walking, taking showers, everything - couldn’t sleep until 2:00 am when noise died down.
(5) totally not a family hotel, you don’t want your kids exposed to that ugly pot smell going in or out of the hotel.

I think management are short staffed, they need to do a lot of work to update the room and enforce policies.
Thank God it was only one night, never again….

My wife and I had curtailed travel during the pandemic, consequently, we omitted
for over a year our trips to Monterey/Carmel, where we always stayed at the Super 8 on Munras Ave. So when our daughter and two granddaughters announced a trip to California, we eagerly booked two rooms at this motel. This motel has made a proper adjustment to Covid restrictions; check in was safe and effective. The rooms are impeccable. The coffee provided in the rooms is excellent. Checking out is efficient and involves no personal interaction. This motel is conveniently located. The rates are fair and competitive.

As reviewed, this is a budget, no frills hotel, however rooms have been remodeled, and while ours wasn't very spacious (lower floor, queen bed only), it had very modern features, excellent recessed lighting (and lots of it), shutters on the window. Bathroom/vanity was a good size, microwave, refrigerator.
Easy, no contact check in...parking spaces are tight, but it's a good location and quiet. Across from major shopping center, and Whole Foods, restaurants, and Rite Aid, plus a nice walk to downtown Monterey if you're a walker.
Will definetly stay again.

After many years of traveling, I have learned to stay faithful to the high-end hotels such as Marriott, Hilton, Best Western chains. Not the best service & limited parking lot. Rooms are nicely modern and big bathroom. It's disappointing how much our stay was for 1 night when it wasn't worth it.

Customer service at “front desk” can be much nicer. “Front desk” is more of an interaction through a plexiglass window outside the building. Much of California has already opened (restaurants, movie theaters, etc.) and this place chose to keep the lobby closed. “Front desk” personnel appeared to be annoyed or angry when inquiring about payment details. (Expedia app sent the wrong cc information to the vendor as compared to the cc used at booking confirmation.)

I was blasted by strong musty odor as soon as I entered the assigned room. The odor went away after turning the AC on and leaving the door open for about five minutes. The bed is clean. There are several areas on the floor in both the bathroom and bed area that are dirty. Some small parts of the bathroom wall have dirty water stain.

Overall, an adequate place for an overnight stay.

The room is basic, but very clean and comfortable. It is an excellent choice for the price, the staff is friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, close to Highway 1 if you wish to pop in to Carmel or drive down the coast to Big Sur. Del Monte shopping centre is directly across the street and has a Whole Foods, in case you need to pick up anything. I certainly will stay here again.

We weren't travelling with a baby so didn't ask, I'm afraid, and there wasn't one in the room. It did look like there were families staying so I would be surprised if they didn't have cribs. Sorry I can't be of further help.
