Basic accommodation, very clean, and fantastically located to travel around. Needs renovated, but other than that I couldn't fault it. There is a gym, swimming pool, not sure what the breakfasts are like, always eat out. There is a fridge and microwave in the room, which is a great help for people travelling on a budget.

We stayed for $95 which included taxes. The room had the basics and toiletries in the bathroom which did not include a shower cap. There was plenty of plugs for all the electrical devices we carry with us nowadays. Breakfast was cheerios or frosted flakes, apples, frozen waffles and toast to put in the toaster and either OJ or apple...

We choose this hotel because they were a partnering hotel with Monterey bay aquarium so we were able to buy 2-day tickets for the price of a one day admission from the women at the front desk who was very friendly. The aquarium was only about a 10minute drive away. The room had everything we needed such as a small...

You get what you pay for and I was looking for a cheap, but clean, motel for a last-minute getaway. As such, I thought it was decent. It is located on a main highway, but it leads farther away from the main wharf and downtown area. It's cheaper and quieter for these reasons. It's about an 8 minute drive to...
