The ONLY reason this Motel gets one star is the free parking, how sad is that? Accommodations were not as expected, one family member even had to sleep on the floor. Only one staff member was friendly, all other staff that we encountered were not helpful and seemed disinterested in our concerns. Subsequent emails and communication with this Motel were...

I have stayed at this hotel twice now. It's simple but still nice. A really nice amenity that is offered is the full breakfast every day. This breakfast isn't just coffee, juice, and donuts. This hotel offers a full menu breakfast that includes pancakes, eggs, sausage, cereals, toast, cinnamon rolls, juices, coffee, and tea. However, that is not the best...

We had a very good room overlooking the front of the hotel. It was quiet and welcoming. The chance to start each evening with a glass of wine and a nibble of cheese was a great idea. Breakfasts are self service and the range of options was much greater than in similar establishments. Good parking underneath the hotel was secure....

This hotel was great and the front desk employees were amazing. Although there was a new front desk agent getting trained while we were there, he did an amazing job and did not seem like he was new at all! The manager who I forgot his name (bigger brown guy) was great and extremely helpful with everything that we needed....

Location was great right near Cannery Row and the water. Liked that the hotel had free garage parking, free breakfast (6:00-10:00), and free wine, cheese and crackers (5:30-6:30). Staff was all very friendly, however, they had one mishap that put a wrinkle in our stay. My wife and I each had one reward night reservation back to back. We asked...

But non for the room. Don't get me wrong, the room is quite big and the amenities are fine, but the walls are so thin that every experiment my neighbors did with the faucet kept me up all night. Also, there was some kind of thermostat (in their room or mine, I really don't know) that started working every few...

Dear Oren M, It is good to know you chose our hotel for your stay and appreciate you sharing your feedback. Although you mentioned you liked our rooms, I regret to learn that you did not find the sound proofing of the walls to be good. I apologize if the noise levels were disturbing.

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The beds were the comfiest we had in our 3 weeks in California. The location was perfect for Cannery Row and has a really lovely antique market next door. The staff were really friendly and very helpful. Only small gripe was the breakfast area is very small but they do...

First and foremost, one must praise the staff at this hotel! They are really great, welcoming and helpful! The location is also prime and the rooms are comfortable. My two cents for improving the overall experience would be: 1. carpet in room needs some attention and 2. I found bugs in the bathroom, twice.

I really like the location of this hotel. Walking distance to everything. Pricing is reasonable, and the hotel is clean and nice. I really like how nice the beds and pillows were. Stayed in enough places to appreciate some nice amenities. Parking will be a problem on location as there isn't much available at the hotel.

Location is in the heart of Monterey - by cannery row and just a few blocks from the aquarium. There is limited free parking at below the hotel. Rooms are adequate. Coffee maker, in room safe and mini refrigerator are included. A big negative is layout of rooms requiring lugging suitcases up and down several stairs. Breakfast is standard fare...
