the one night we spent here was well worth our small outlay .. the staff were helpful and friendly .. the room clean and welcoming .. the grounds tidy and even a buffet style breakfast .. handy for a visit to the aquarium and downtown ..

The room was clean, cheap and a small breakfast to get you started was included. Yeah, there are practically no chairs and tables at the breakfast, but just take it to your room, you get where you pay for. The value for money is just excellent.

We had read the reviews when we booked and were nervous about there not being hot water, but it seems to just need a bit of time to warm up. We had no issues with that. Bit of a problem with the tub draining, but there was a plunger in the bathroom so we just fixed it ourselves. Breakfast was...

As others have stated good for a one night stay, bed was comfortable and room and bathroom clean. There was a microwave and fridge. There was a basic buffet breakfast which bearing in mind the low price ($42) was adequate. There was a very nice pool, but I did not stay long enough to use it. If you wanting to...

A motel. Would not stay more than 1 night. Carpet rather grubby but bedding fine and clean. Has a fridge and microwave. Too far out unless you have a car. Get breakfast too but not great. Very few seats so some guests take breakfast back to their room where there is a table and chairs.

The Surf is a good choice if you are looking for a clean place to spend the night in Monterey. The room is big and equipped with fridge and microwave. Bathroom is just fine. Nothing fancy here but, for the pric , it's a good deal.

This hotel was good for the one night we stayed in it. Room was spacious and clean and free breakfast in the morning consisted of self service pasteries, toast and cereals which helped start the day. Monterey is a beautiful fishing village and it is worth heading down to fisherman's wharf in the evening for a walk. We parked the...

On our way from San Francisco to LA, this was an in between stop. The motel is well situated just off PCH1. We drove in the evening to the fish market and canary row. By the way, in the evening we parked at a CVS instead of using one of the pricey parking lots. Room was fine, clean and enough...

Stayed at this motel and was really disappointed. The rooms had an overwhelming stench of cleaning products which was foul. We thought it was there to mask the smell of something more sinister. The beds were pretty comfy, but that was it. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to a friend and I certainly wouldn't stay here again. Plenty of other...

Very nice room. We had a king single. Plenty of room with newer amenities. Flat screen TV, refer, microwave. When the door and windows were closed the outside traffic noise was nonexistant.AND its walking distance to the mall and Starbucks.
