"Rooms ok, location good."
Room was generally clean but barely had enough room to move around in. Beds were a little uncomfortable but you can't beat the location. Pretty much a stones throw away from the ocean. Main reason why we stayed was the price and how close it was to the beach and Monterey.

"Great place to stay on a budget."
A nice place to stay near the beach but away from hustle and bustle. It was not a fancy place, but the breakfast was nice, the room was clean and it had a great location. Also, the price was great for being so close to the beach. The mattress was not terribly comfortable, but that is my only complaint. I would recommend staying here.

"Not a clean motel next to a nice beach."
The staff was very friendly, but the room was so outdated and very dirty. The sink and tub had someone else's hair in it and the bed had sand in the sheets. Will not ever stay there again.

"Got a workout at Quality Inn"
The first room we were given was smelly and we could not stay in there. The second room was on the third floor and the key would never work and we had to keep going back and forth to the office to get another one made. This seemed to be irritating to the staff instead of apologetic.

"STAY OUT!!!"
Pros: breakfast of eggs, waffles, yogurt, pastries, juice Walking distance to Marina State Beach Cons: check in time is 3pm--they said rooms were not cleaned, would not be available until 6pm. Old, UNCLEAN decor inside--stained carpets, broken bathroom fixtures, walls with dirt/dark spots, stale air ventilation, small/crowded area, lumpy beds/pillows Overall, not impressed with the late check in and absolutely HORRIBLE living quarters. I didn't feel clean staying there...

"Close to Beach"
Close to beach and pricey, but cost comparable to other hotel properties. Dated room and facility needing drastic updating. Check-In was at 3PM, but room wasn't ready until 4:30PM. Complimentary breakfast served in small/dark converted hotel room, which was extremely crowded for the number of guest being served. The pool was centrally located at the hotel, but extremely small compared to the number of guests using it, go to the beach instead.

The location was beautiful, so close to the dunes. However, we were on the 3rd floor, and it was very inconvenient with all the bags we had. We found a used Band-Aid in our ice bucket, which we had replaced. There was no refrigerator, and poor TV reception and channel selection. There was a disinfectant smell overpowering the room. We've stayed in other hotels in this chain, and they were just fine, but I would not stay here again.

"would not recommend"
The room was clean and the staff was friendly. The walls were very thin or not insulated so very noisy from neighboring rooms and nearby highway. The breakfast room was very dirty. The tables and chairs were not clean and the carpeting had not been vacuumed. I was one of the first people there in the morning so the mess was left from the day before.

"Waaay Overpriced"
The room was cramped, old, and way overpriced. the TV was ancient and the remote didn't work. The bed was pathetic and uncomforable, with 12" x 12" pillows. Basically, just an old hotel with no upkeep or modernization. Not anywhere near worth the close to $300.00 dollar a night price.

"Newer hotel next to the beach"
The room was small, but looked out onto a pleasant courtyard with lush landscaping and a small pool. The location was wonderful. You could walk to Marina beach, which is part of a beautiful stretch of coast with miles of white sand and surf, and not many visitors. Fort Ord, with its huge expanses of coastal scrub, is also nearby. The hotel staff were pleasant, and there was a nice breakfast spread. The only downside was that the breakfast area was very small, crowded and noisy, and the housekeeping in the room left a lot to be desired. The tub needed a tad more scrubbing, one of the lights next to the bed was unplugged, requiring moving the mattress to plug in, and there were no water cups left on the bathroom sink, and no coffee cups with the coffee maker.

"Best Location/Worst Hotel"
We were in 7 different hotels during our 9-day road trip, and I have to say this was the worst one. We'd had pretty good luck with Comfort Inns and one stay at a Quality Inn, however....the room had a weird disinfectant smell; when my husband decided to get ice, the bucket which had the usual plastic bag in it had a used band-aid stuck to it; the front desk couldn't immediately supply us with a new bucket and said they would bring one to our room; while we were out for a walk to the beautiful dunes they brought one to our room -- before we went to our room after a walk we stopped at the desk to see if it had been brought to our room -- this is a 3-story hotel without an elevator, and we were on the 3rd floor -- the desk clerk who brought it to the room asked us accusingly of smoking pot in our room and trying to cover it up with a disinfectant smell -- in the midst of a lobby of people, I might add. The TV offered nothing but the very basic 31 channels, which may not bother some, but the other places had so much more to offer. We didn't even stay for their breakfast -- just wanted to get on the road.

"Not worth the money spent"
It was not worth the money spent. The bathroom has mold on the ceiling the bathroom door frame was rusted and dirty. The bathtub drain stopper was sitting on the tub ledge and could not be used to fill the tub! Coffee and maker was provide, but there were no cups. The lamp over the desk was barely hanging on to the wall... All I can say good , is that the sheets and towels were clean. I would not recommend staying here!

"Disgusting Quality Inn Monterey"
Our family was looking forward to a quick getaway and Monterey has always been a favorite destination spot. Since it was Memorial weekend most of the hotels where booked. I was able to book through hotels.com and this hotel looked pretty nice from the pictures. We arrived in the late evening and first thing we noticed was that the toilet wasn't clean at all. There was hair and cleaning powder all around it. I ended up cleaning it due to all of us needing to use it. When it was time to brush our teeth and get ready for bed, I noticed a lot more hair all around the sink area. Up to this point I was disgusted because the housekeeper had not cleaned our room. I ended up cleaning some more. I felt cheated because we paid $200 to stay at this hotel and it wasn't even clean. I told the front desk and all the lady had to say was "sorry". I will never stay at this place ever again.

"Nice hotel but bring first-rate ear-plugs!"
The hotel is nice, clean and in a great place. However, as the walls are thin, the noise from people talking loudly in neighboring rooms or taking showers, including at 3 am, is by far too disturbing for a possibility of a peaceful sleep at night. Perhaps, however, with first-rate ear plugs this may be possible, so we will go there again but only equipped with the ear-plugs.

"not that close to the beach & rundown"
Spring break family getaway to spend a few days at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Chose this hotel for its closeness to the beach & price. It's not that close to the beach. The room was tiny & barely room to walk around the 2 queen beds. We were traveling with our 11yr old & 15yr and this room was way too small for us! Free breakfast was decent. Pool looked bigger in the picture & it is actually an oversized hot tub, which surprisingly the only thing I liked about the hotel. Our toilet did not work well, my husband had to keep fixing the flusher & the hotel is pretty old & not well maintained. The staff were very friendly & helpful. Do not eat at the restuarant across the street. Over priced, bad food and SLOW service.

"Older property needs updating and an elevator"
We were given a room on the third floor and had to lug our suitcases up 2 flights of outdoor stairs. The bedding looked rumpled, so I had to check the sheets to make sure they were clean. The toilet seat was scratched and stained. No refridgerator or microwave. The TV had very limited channels, and was an older style with no hdmi input. The mattress had a depressed spot in the middle, so you rolled to the middle no matter what. The shower was ok, but there was no rubber mat, and the floor of the tub was very slippery. Someone had left food outside our room on the top of a trashcan, and some rather large crows had spread it all over the outdoor hallway and all down the stairs. It wasn't cleaned up for a few hours. We stayed for 2 nights, and our coffee maker wasn't cleaned and no new coffee given for the 2nd morning. It was cold in the room and the bedding was not adequate to keep us warm at night. We didn't want to use the heater as it was very noisy.

"Review"
This hotel was very dirty. Garbage's along the walkways were overflowing. Our room had hair on the bathroom floor along wit a oeice of waded up toilet paper. Obviously the floor had not been cleaned well. A stained washcloth with a hair in it was folded up like a fresh one for us to use on the edge of the tub. The coffee pot had dried coffee all over it. Beds are very small with flimsy mattresses. The room is the quality of a motel 6. There was no waste can in or around the bathroom or vanity. Only one was under the desk. I would think you need a waste can by the bathroom. Breakfast was good for a continental breakfast but the room it was in was very small and crowded. Had to take your breakfast back to the room to eat. Spa was big and nice and the location is very close to beach. It was not a quiet hotel though. The freeway noise was loud and also there were a group of people at the spa at 3:00 in the morning making a lot of noise that the hotel must not enforce quiet time at the spa
