This small motel is very conveniently located and has been updated. We had a great room with King and single bed that worked great for me and two teens. Comfortable and perfect location, got up early and at the aquarium in 5 min! Very affordable and nice place. Would stay again.

This hotel suffers by comparison to Masterpiece Inn in Morro Bay(see review). It's adequate. Pillows are terrible, bed fair. No blackout window curtains and they are needed. No breakfast. No copy of our reservation from Bed Tonight and huge hassle to straighten it all out. Desk clerk was patient and helpful.

Stayed here after driving up the Big Sur with 2 friends visiting from the UK. We booked the room in advance to ensure they had a vacancy. The room was very reasonably priced. We arrived at 8.40pm and checked in, lady on reception was lovely and recommend some places for breakfast and dinner. Went to our room and to our...

Took a quick trip down here with my mom and son to check out the aquarium and spend the weekend. The room was clean and comfortable and more spacious than I anticipated. Our room had a big slider that we opened to let in the fresh ocean air. This is an older hotel, nothing fancy and not oceanfront. However it's...

The entrance to The Inn is right on Route 1 which is ideal if your intention is to drive the west coast route, as was ours, and we arrived right on check in time to be greeted by the receptionist who was happy for us to be there which was reassuring. The rooms, with a large bed, flat screen t.v....

We used the hotelstonight app and got a tremendous deal on this property(so much so that we were worried). Let me just say this, I don't think i will be staying at any other hotel in the area, ever. It's so so so clean.( we saw them cleaning up the room next to us one morning and they removed the...

We needed a place near Carmel, but all the dog friendly places were booked, so we moved over to Monterey and tried this place. It is essentially a motel on motel row. The beds were comfortable and the location was convenient to sights and to a park for dog walking, but the room was nothing special, the towels were not...

The room was clean and quiet with a comfortable and large bed. Excellent shower. Nice people running the place. I thought it might feel a bit bleak but not true, and is surprisingly quiet considering it's on a main road. As its at the near end of Munras Avenue it's a fairly short walk to the main stretch of Monterey....

4.5/5. It's a budget hotel. We only had a quick over night stay but it was perfectly nice. The bed was comfy and room very clean. I was afraid the walls were too thin and we'd hear the neighbors but it turned out ok. I'd stay here again.

A wonderfully warm and inviting ambiance that is perfectly cozy for the visiting travelers with tastefully done rooms. I've stayed on multiple occasions and have never been disappointed, making this my favorite place to stay on the Pennisula within so many viable choices. The staff is the very best, attentive and sincere to each and every detail. The value is...
