I guess "false" advertising is what describes it best. I had made the reservation through Expedia. They have a pool but since not much was working and personnel seemed to be quite no where I didn't go. I had also asked for high speed internet...but...that too wasn't really working. Couldn't get any work done as I had little to no...

Did not realize when we booked this hotel that it was rated #55 out of 55. The shear curtains were in shreds. When we first arrived the fridge was not working so the maintenance man/front desk clerk/I do everything guy went under the cabinet and tried to plug another cord into the already overloaded extension cord. That lasted maybe 5...

Found uneaten food and roaches(pot) on the floor that tells me the floor hadn't even sweep , If you have to stay there take your own bedding ,and a large can of Lysol you'll need it.I informed the owner and she acted...

False advertising Nasty property Liars and cheats Save yourself the headache and stay in your car if you have to -- it would be much safer! Refused to honor online reservation even with conf #. Offered same room for almost twice as much. When I called booking.com to make sure my card wasn't charged, they had my reservation in system...

I stayed here a year ago for about $50/night. This year, on the same weekend, they want $340/night. I can stay in a Hilton for $340/night. This is a beatup, not renovated in 20 years joint with a $70 Travelodge next door and the nearest restaurant six blocks away. Frankly, last year's rate was a bit much; this year is...

I know you get what you pay for but we did not pay for that. Room took us back to 1990, place is old and not kept up at all. I will not stay at this place again. Breakfast was non-existent. Juice machine did not work and they did not really have anything other then a few muffins, coffee and...

Terribly disappointed. The room was dirty. The TV and remote was broken. Two lights didn't turn on. The baseboards were separated from the wall where bugs were found. The stove was filthy. Tile was missing from the bathroom sink. The screen was ripped and the window did not lock. I'm very easy to please and don't complain but this hotel...

A 4 star hotel rate during Monterey week in a deplorable 1/2 star(less) condition should forewarn attendees to plan WAY ahead of time to avoid this place. The only consolation is the clean towels and basic bedding sheets plus the available hot water.

We stopped in late in the evening and were charged $200 for a room with a bathroom that had obviously not been cleaned. There was hair in the shower and a build up of scum on the soap holder. The main bed had a huge dip in the mattress. Carpet was disgusting. To top it off, I woke up with...

“Not sure about other rooms, but our room was nasty, smelled, ceiling repaired with duct tape, flat pillows, etc. The only positive comment I can make is that it was quiet since we arrived after midnight so other patrons were probably asleep. I would not allow my dogs to stay here!!”
