"Not Recommended!!"
We stayed in 4 different hotels on our trip from Washington to California, this was the only one that I would NOT recommend. The outside was nice. Check in and check out was fine. The room smelled, curtains were falling off the rods, there was a hole in the wall. The neighborhood was noisy, dogs barking all night, lots of late night voices in the area around the hotel.

"Bed Bugs!!!"
Location was great, service was great, however we checked into our two queen bed room to find it was actually to double beds. The beds were way too soft for my liking. Shower was great that night. Woke up the next morning and my daughter had red circles on her arm and some on her feet. They weren't mosquito bites, they were bed bug bites!!! We stayed in room 107. Stay away from this hotel!!!! Paid $107 for a horrible experience. My poor Baby is terrified of hotels now.

"Inconsistent rooms"
We got two rooms - their quality was completely different! One with flat screen, nice table and chairs, etc. The other one with an old TV, no table. The other issue is noise from the main street.

"Good Hotel with very limited Services."
Clean room with fridge and microwave and limited number of clothes hangers with no cupboard. Has a common continental breakfast that is the same as most limited service hotels. Elevators and office close st 10:00 PM so you need to use your room key to access stairs. Friendly couple man the front desk.

"Disappointed in our hotel choice."
This is a clean place to stay and the beds are comfortable. It is very basic. The knob to turn on the water in the shower totally did not work and the pressure of the water in the shower was very slow. The odd thing was the pressure in the sink was perfect. The fruit in the "breakfast" was very poor. We got a going away present from the neighborhood. While our car was in the parking lot on the last night of our stay, someone drove a nail into the whitewall of our tire. Our mechanic said this had to have been on purpose as we could not have just picked up a nail in the location the nail was. This added $200.00 to our stay that we did not expect.

"Nice and simple"
The hotel was nicer than expected and very comfortable. The owners live on property and they take good care of the place. It could use some updates like the bathroom and furnishings, but it was clean and well kept. Breakfast was simple but good, although only went until 9am which is too early to shut down in my opinion. I would stay here again.

Worst night! We stayed here for a softball tournament. Unfortunately, it was the same weekend as the jazz festival so everything else was booked. This hotel cost us $200 for the night!!! Such a rip off!!! The location is horrible! We had bugs in our room, our toilet felt like it was going to fall through the ground, and the room was dirty. We kept finding other people's hair everywhere! Ewwwww!!!!

"Not a smoke free environment!!!!"
Dissatisfied with the entire experience. I complained to the concierge about our neighbors excessive smoke disturbing me and triggering asthma attacks. I asked to be moved to another room, but nothing could be done. According to the concierge he could not ask them to stop because they were inside the room even if it is a "smoke-free" hotel.

"Good value"
Good value in the area for a few nights. Room was a little worn but very comfortable and good maintenance. Breakfast was good but was lacking the hard boiled eggs that just about every hotel with an expanded continental has these days. Otherwise a good offering. We liked it as it was less than 30 minutes from Monterrey and maybe 40 from Carmel, so well situated for us.

"Ok Motel"
This hotel is more like a motel. If you need to enter or leave the premisses after office buisness hours, request a room on the first floor. Access to elevators is limited and access to stair cases require a room key. The room key may need to be reprogrammed if you need access after hours. neighborhood is noisy.

"Serves its purpose....nothing fancy"
There were no rooms available in Monterey area so we had to move further inland. The rooms themselves were surprisingly larger than other hotel stays. We had a king size bed and queen size in one room. Clean, comfortable, and fits our purpose as a sleep over place. TV was outdated and the remote difficult to operate but still works. My advise for breakfast is get up early and get your share . There is not a lot of wiggle room in the eating area. You bump into each other because space is limited. Typical continental food... Cold cereal, yogurt, fruit, coffee, juice.... Our stay was adequate.

"Comfy stay"
I was there for a wedding. The rooms were clean and very comfortable with the AC working perfectly. The lights in the bathroom were not working nor was one of the bedside lamps. I mentioned it to the owner who looked liked he was going to get on it right away to have fixed. Overall, it was a good stay. The owners were very nice and service was great.

"Ok"
Staff is managed by a nice Indian family. However, the only elevator on the three story buidling is in the main lobby/office. The elevator is only accessible duirng normal business hours (6:30 am to 10 pm). After hours requires the use of stairs only. Two stair cases are available one on each side of the buidling. My access card could not open the front stairs. Upon check in this information was not given to me. I was stuck in the elevator between the 2nd and the 3rd floor at 5 am the next morning until I realized that the elevator was out of service. Calling room service only got a full message voice mail. Later in afternoon, hotel staff checked card programming to provide access to both stair cases. Room was clean but sink did not drain quickly (clogged) and the area is a bit noisy. This is Ok for one night.

"Not Very Accommodating"
This is an adequate budget hotel, and this was my second stay because it is close to the office where we meet our clients. HOWEVER, I asked to check out at 1 PM, and this was denied. I was told that the maids leave at noon, which is ridiculous and obviously not true because noon is the normal checkout time. When I left, I told the manager that we would not be back and that I would give him a bad on-line review. Then he denied saying to me what he had said! Not being able to check out at 1 PM meant that I had to sit in my car for over an hour before my associate finished with our client. I have NEVER had this problem in any other hotel on our frequent business trips around northern California.

Passing thru from Monterey to Hearst Castle and needed one night stay. This is the only good looking hotel, the rest on the same street are motels. Room is well kept, nice and clean with fridge and microwave. Wifi is fast. Wish they add yogurt for breakfast.
