Del Monte Pines
Ranked #9 of 10 Monterey B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 July 2016

We arrived on time the place was in a well traveled and safe location. Check in was smooth. The exterior hallways were carpeted and dirty. The room carpet was loose and spotted. The bed ok, but the pillows were ROCK HARD! The rooms water supply kept going off all night like a gusher releasing pressure. Yes we only paid 89.00 for the night, but my goodness why such clumpy rooms in such a nice part of Monterey? A bit of paint where the wear and tear is and some decent carpeting along with ok pillows would make this place shine. The pics they put up on the website are deceptive. When we asked for the coffee pot which is stated in the booking info, we were told that the website was outdated and they no longer provide them in each room. Good thing the bed was still a room benefit...won't go back there!

Room Tip: Stay away until they clean the place proper. Dirty!

but it went downhill quickly.

The good: Check in was easy. The room while old was clean and the bathroom area had recently been updated.

The bad: The wall are paper thin. There were very noisy guests in the hotel who woke us up at 3:30 am. We picked up the phone to call the front desk and no dial tone. Checked the cord and saw that it was unplugged so we plugged it back in....still no dial tone. Used our cell phone to call the front desk to complain....no answer. We simply had to suffer through the noise for almost an hour before they got quiet.

Expensive for what you get. Just for one noght if you really tired and thete's no place else. Not recommended for family with children. Loved the location but the motel needs a makeover....RUSH!!. The room was outdated, the carpets was dirty. Thin walls. Breakfast is just muffins, orange juice and coffee.

The room, the bathroom and the price were ok, but the "continental breakfast" was really poor, just muffins and orange juice. They didn't even serve coffee and there were no tables and chairs to sit down for having breakfast.

Room Tip: Padre oaks motel is a better choice

If you are looking for a cute, small, friendly (manager Neil is great) motel for a visit to Monterey/Carmel, the Del Monte Pines is a good choice. Service is good, rooms are clean and nice, breakfast snack is juice and pastry, and price is right.
Conveniently located-we will return.

Where do I start ? the outer bedding looks like it needs a good wash , the carpets need replacing , the furniture is chipped to the point it needs replacing, the TV has one channel (a music one) the phone to complain does not work , the pluming rattles every time someone uses the water the painting was done by a blind man. the breakfast is 1/4 of a cut up muffin and a paper cup of orange juice which has to be taken to your room , simply the worse room I have stayed in ever in the USA .

1. Overpowering smell of curry at the reception desk
2. Owner is not friendly. Begrudgingly gave me coffee in the morning because it is
15 minutes before breakfast while he is at the desk
3. Rooms so dated and cleanliness is definitely questionable
4. Furniture, not only outdated and in bad condition
5. Lamp is hardly working, even goodwill will not accept it
6. One of the picture is missing from behind the bed, must have fallen down and they do not care to replace
7. The bed was so uncomfortable and there was not enough sheets, no liner and fitted sheets, and pillows were so hard. Dare not check it out how it even looks like.
8. The plumbing and the fan in the bathroom was so loud and worse, the shower head
was all rusty. Toilet paper was the cheapest they could find
9. Towels was cheap and hard, might as well use it for drying dishes
10. Breakfast is a joke. Muffin was cut into quarters, and orange juice was half a cup and to be taken to your room

9.

Room Tip: I strongly believe that all the room are the same, just outdated, cheaply decorated,
