"Close to sights"
This location was close to sites we were interested in seeing and was easy on of freeway access. The hotel was impressively clean and had hard wood floors which I have not seen before in a hotel of this type. Would stay again if I plan another trip to this area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

No one at front desk for 30 minute and the pool was closed. Found a much nicer property near by with heated indoor poolGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great No Frills Place to Stay!"
The rooms were very clean, walls looked like newly fresh paint, very nice. In my room the remote for the TV did not work well and the in the bathroom they had installed a auto close hinge on the door. The door always closing was annoying, I'm sure the remote could work with fresh batteries. I would stay there again even thought the bathroom door was […] a pain. Very reasonable price.

We requested more pillows and they could only find one , that they gave us with out a cover as not sure of location of covers, unable to use .Genuine Hotels.com guest review

my room was niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and affordable"
I've stayed in several of the neighboring hotels and this is the cleanest, and most importantly quietest since it is a 1 story hotel with no one walking on the floor above you. Nice staff, great price, I stayed here a total of 11 days over the course of 3 weeks. Would recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Decent motel - quality/price ratio, but bad customer service. Always felt like I was disturbing them at the front desk and they were not understanding.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Its a excellent setup and you get more than what you pay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Simple, clean and very good value..."
I needed to find a room last minute in the Monterey/Carmel area. MSI posted a great rate and decent reviews. I'm pleased to say it was exactly what I was looking for... A good nights sleep in a quiet and clean room. I was up and out the door early after a shower in an adequate bathroom that was pretty much spotless. Also worth mentioning, I checked […] in around 9-9:30pm and was greeted with a warm and friendly hello from the woman behind the counter. She was efficient in getting me checked in which was very much appreciated as an exhausted traveler. If you're simply in need of a basic room which is clean and quiet, MSI would be a good bet and great value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good enough for me!"
Yes, it is not exactly the nicest hotel ever but the price was great, the location was even better and the room was good enough. You could tell they had done some shotty work to cover up some issues but it was clean and I got a great nights sleep! If you show up late to check in the front desk turns into a ghetto side window with a bell that doesn't […] work so just call the front desk and tell them you are at the front desk and you'll be taken care of Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"GOOD ROOM AT A FAIR PRICE"
Good room at a fair price. We would stay again, they are upgrading floors to hardwood floors.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No hot water"
Overall it was OK except one major problem. No hot water the first day. Not even warm. Just freezing cold. But we did have hot water on the following morning.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean good value"
toilet loose on floor but otherwise a clean comfortable room / quiet location / pool closed for winter but would be nice in summer / would have been nice to have coffee /tea machine in room or 24/7 coffee and tea in lobbyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, Quiet, and Comfortable"
This is a very good place for the price. It's Clean, the bed comfortable, and it was quiet. I would have given them all 5 ratings but the direct tv did not work while there, which only left a few channels to view. Also, there was some water damage in the bathroom showing thru the wall. Only a post it size, but something that should be looked at.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very happy with the value and place. Clean well kept good location. Nice staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very pleased with this hotel. Great location and easy access to downtown Monterey and Del Monte Shopping Center. Very clean and well maintained. Nothing fancy, but for the price and location it was perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for the price"
The Monterey Surf Inn is a great deal for what you pay. It is clean, the staff is friendly, and the price is incomparable. There's a mini fridge, a microwave, and a television, but only one chair in the king room so that is minorly inconvenient. Be careful in the parking lot-- the spaces are very tight and strangely configured. Overall, I would stay […] here again and recommend it to my friends. A great find!

"Other Nearby Motels Are Better"
Not particularly comfortable. The wash basin faucet barely gives out water. The shower stall so tiny that one can hardly rotate one's body. The shower is fixed and not adjustable. There were no bedside lamps in our room. Our room was quite though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, but not don't forget anything."
Room was clean and comfortable. Don't forget anything in your room though. You'll never see it again. We forgot a bag of merchandise worth more than the cost of the room and when I called back later that day no one had seen it. Maid cleaned the room and "found nothing". So make sure you triple check your room before you leave.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It´s a good place, a bit far from the city cnter to walk but fine. Free wifi, free parking, Tiny hotel, tidy and good bathrooms. The girl at the desk was kind of she doesn´t care. They didnt have breakfast during the days I stayed there and they include breakfast there, so that, the gave me 5 dollars to have a breakfast elsewhere...5 dollars for 3 people!!! […] can you afford to get 3 black coffees at starbucks with 5? I´m afraid it´s impossible! You ave to go to Laguna Seca Raceway...it´s 15 min far from there and go to canning road!

"Not bad for a motel for day after New Year's Eve"
Booking using Expedia was a breeze. Motel was comfortable, with a large bed, newer, late model 32" TV, nice marble tile bathtub and shower stall. Toilet was the long, elongated bowl, meaning it isn't the cheapest. Shower rain volume was torrential, lots of hot water, and made for a very relaxing shower. However, it needs a rubber mat to prevent slips. […] Grab bar by the shower was good but it still needed a rubber mat. Flow and pressure from sink faucet was so low, it wasn't funny. You can hardly brush your teeth, also, the water was lukewarm and took a long time to get warm and appropriate. Temperature regulation using the A/C unit was OK. Not really a lot of room to move around, but adequate, as it has a microwave and a refrigerator. Hair dryer did not work though. small desk to work on. The room I used did not have side table lamps, but direct overhead bright lamps. These were too bright, directly in your eyes from above, and cannot be regulated in intensity. It was therefore unpleasant. No coffee or tea inside room, but you can go to the office and get some. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We would normally stay at an Embassy Suites or comprable but needed to take this trip on a bit of a budget. I did my homework and read reviews on the smaller hotels and picked this one...so glad i did...had such a pleasant stay. Room was newly furnished, remodeled and painted. Everything was clean, workable and down right just a real cute hotel all […] around. No more Embassy Suites for me if I casn find hotels like this. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very convenient location"
Very clean and confortable room. Close to the Del Monte Mall and to all attractions in Monterey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location couldn't be beat. Easy access to the water, freeways etc...This motel was typical for any motel, nothing fancy but met all of our needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Xmas Day accomodation"
Hotel was very convenient with respect to where family event was located.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A small motel, single story, near on and off ramps for Highway 68, and almost next door to a great, little, inexpensive, Vietnamese restaurant called Chopstyx. The motel has a pool, and all the usual amenities. The decor and bathroom had recently been updated.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was fine but the tv was terrible and towels were way beyond their normal life. People were great and the location and price really worked for me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"small area with good price"
the area is a little bit small, but the price is good. worth to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the money excellent! Saved $400 per night by not staying at Spanish Bay where most of attendee's stayed. My wife did not attend so it was hard to justify $1,600+ while I was on the golf course all day!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything"
I have stayed at a number of motels in the area, and the Surf Inn, is where I will be staying from now on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice rooms, not-so-great service."
These rooms were recently re-done and look great; new paint and hardware, flatscreen TV, fridge AND microwave. Pretty standard beds, not the most comfortable thing I've ever slept on but it absolutely does the job. The overall layout is like one of those one-night motels, with every door coming off a common parking lot. It's one of many hotels right […] off of the main drag in southern Monterey, but the soundproofing from the windows helps with the traffic noise. There's not much insulation between rooms, however, so chances are you'll be able to recognize your neighbors by voice before you see them. Staff was pretty hilariously inconsistent, and the very few times we asked for assistance it took a good couple of tries to get anything out of them. SUMMARY: If you're looking for a luxury experience, this is not the hotel for you. If, like us, you just need a place to stay while you explore the city, this'll do... as long as you don't need much from the staff and can tolerate a little mild traffic noise now and again.

"Clean room and comfortable king size bed."
No complaints about my single night stay. Room was clean including the tiled floor and shower. Had a decent sized frig, small microwave & a small table for a laptop to plug into the data jack or free wireless with a decent signal strength. Had to use the room heater because of freezing overnight low and the curtains get getting in the way, so ending […] up tucking them on the window sill. Fan noise is noisy but got used to it after a while. No coffee maker in the room but free coffee & tea provided in the registration desk, I don't drink coffee so this wasn't an issue for me. A very good Vietnamese restaurant "Chopstix" is within walking distance, only about a minute away to walk. Very busy during dinner time but I ordered to go on line & had my meal in 20 minutes.

"Clean and pleasant, but no frills."
No coffee maker in room, although coffee and tea are available for free in the lobby until 9PM. Basic toast, cereal, Danish, coffee, juice, etc. "breakfast". Our room had a Jacuzzi; but, it costs an additional $30 to use it. Good location and adequate for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"best room for the price"
The room was really nice. Very clean, the bathroom was impeccable and the bed was actually comfortable. It was a great find on a last minute search. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. I will be staying there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great price, location. Will definitely stay there again. Compares favorably with many of the other Monterey area hotels I've stayed at in the past (all of which were more expensive,b y 80-200+%). Tried both the free apple and orange juices in the lobby the morning we checked out -- though fresh, the juices quality could use improvement.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, close to Fishermans Wharf"
It was great for one night before we went on our Whale watching tour. The bed, unfortunately was too soft, but considering the price and location, it was just fine.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to Monterey, Carmel, and Pacific Grove"
The bed was very comfortable. Two queen beds in one small room was a little crowded. There was a refrigerator and microwave in the room which was very handy. A nice sized work desk was very convenient, the desk chair was too low for the desk, though, so I sat on a pillow or two. Internet access was good and fairly fast. I did use the wired connection […] mostly but wireless is also available. Breakfast was simple (cereal, juice, coffee, toast, pastries) was good. The people were pleasant. The room clean. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient & Inexpensive"
You can tell it use to be a motel and they seem to renovate it. Bed is comfortable. Bathroom is clean satisfactory. Compared to location and price of things we felt that it was a great deal compared to other places in Monterey area. Breakfast isn't special but Paris Bakery is down the street, maybe a 5 minute drive, and we love having breakfast there. […] Location is great. Close to the freeway, mall diagonal from it, downtown and wharf about a 5 minute drive. We've stayed in a few places in Monterey because brother is attending college there. We feel that paying well under $100 a night without worries of bed bugs and other health hazards is tremendous, especially when all the other places we stayed pretty much matched this place, just cost more.

I understand that people visiting form out of town want to enjoy themselves, i am usually one of them... the only thing i warn people about is the thin walls. My fiance and I had to be up very early the next day, but she was kept up by all of the shenanigans going on in the next room and couldn't sleep until 2:30am. It isnt a good thing to have only […] 3hrs of sleep before a half marathon, fyi... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay away from the Psycho's room!!"
Overall the stay was great... the bed was really super comfortable. The room was small, but it was good for the two of us. The only complaint we had was on our first night we were watching TV around 8:30PM there was a violent banging on the adjoining door to our room. We thought maybe the TV was too loud so we just turned it down. The next day was fine, […] but the third night, around 6:30PM we were sitting in the room watching TV again and the same thing happened again! Like the first time we asked who was there, what they wanted, but no answer. So my wife had to call the front desk to find out what was going on. The desk clerk explained that the room next to ours was the residence of this lady who lived on the motel property, and she was a mental patient. She told us she tried to call the lady but when she has these 'fits' she sometimes doesn't answer her phone. The clerk also mentioned that she has done that to other guests to the motel. So although the motel is a good value for the money, and it is nice and close to the attractions (we just drove to the end of the road to get to the fisherman's wharf.) We would stay there again, and recommend this place to others, but just don't stay in room 8, cuz that's the room next to the crazy lady!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
