The room was not clean. The floor was filthy, you could tell it is never cleaned. My sister found a bunch of hair that was not hers under the covers in her bed. Super gross. The shower head needed a new washer or to be replaced because water would spray put of where the shower head connected to the pipe and flood the bathroom because the shower curtain wouldn't stay up against the wall just due to the angle of the bar. The front desk gave us a hard time when we asked for more towels. All in all just left a lot to be desired and we would not stay again.

Our room was clean and recently updated with a modern look. It had fresh paint and new vinyl wood floor. A sliding barn door door on the shower made for a smaller door to get in and out.. The bathroom also has a translucent glass barn door. Not the best choice because it was semi-transparent and ineffective for containing bathroom sounds. The door hardware was not installed properly which resulted in some damage to the door. There was only one chair in the room that felt like it was going to break soon. Could hear steps from the second concrete floor. Reasonable close to Fisherman's Wharf (1.5 miles). On Munras Ave, there is one motel after another; I imagine there are all similar.

I selected this hotel because it was a mid-range priced hotel for Monterey (over $200 per night). It was between this one and The Lodge. To say the least, I was disappointed. Towels are ragged and stained, no coffee pot, and be sure to bring your own shampoo because they don’t have any. Room was noisy and very minimal. It’s what I think of when I think of a 2 star motel. BTW… it’s most definitely a Motel.

I wanted to love this place so I could return there annually. But that did not happen. From the outside the place is charming but inside the room I was less than impressed. The white bed covering was stained / dirty and there were few amenities. No clock. No coffee pot in the room. No blow dryer. The room was sparse. No pictures. Crowded - it was difficult to access the small bar area with fridge underneath because the table and chairs was pushed so close to it. The bottom drawer of the dresser was partially open when we arrived and turned out to be broken - it would not close completely. The tub drained slowly causing us to stand in water well above our ankles while showering. And lastly, the greeting at the front desk was not friendly when we arrived. The following morning’s staff was meeting ch friendlier and helpful which is why I gave it three stars.
