"Clean room with easy access."
My room was very clean, and relatively quiet. It is close to the freeway for easy access, as well as close to Marina Beach. The breakfast is fine, not great, but it is there. For the price this is excellent.

"Sand Dunes Respite"
Although their location seemed ideal, not far from Monterey & right next to the sand dunes, I was a bit wary of what we would find, as they did have some bad reviews. However, I must say that the staff I dealt with were all very pleasant, professional & friendly during check in & check out. The breakfast area was also very impressive - spacious & very well-stocked with various items for all manner & tastes. If we had had the time to stay longer, we definitely would have tried the hot biscuits & gravy.

Stayed here while visiting my son at the Language Institute. Room rates were fare, and the rooms were kept well enough. Easy access to the beach, a beautiful beach by the way. Not crowded, and no dogs allowed, so a great place to hang out.

"Good value at a great location."
Very clean, very nice hotel although our room was a bit smaller than expected. Bed was comfortable and the tv was large with a good selection of channels. Water pressure was good in the shower. Minor negatives were no ice machine on 3rd floor and the one on 1st floor was out of order. Also breakfast room was small and crowded at breakfast time, but everyone said the food was good. (we passed to save time) Plenty of parking and very close to the state park and other beaches. Would definitely stay here again.

"Never again"
It was easy enough to check in, the lady at the desk was not exactly friendly, but got us checked in with no problems. The place looks nice from the outside, and has a spa, also very close to a beach, but with no view. That pretty much sums up any amenities. For a hundred dollar a night room, we got one tiny room with a bed that was terrible to try to sleep on. It was the worst mattress I've ever spent the night on. The room wasn't terrible, but was it as good as it should have been for the cost? Not really.

"Bugs in the Bed"
The first night was horrible: uncomfortable mattresses, stains on bedding, and we found several bugs (beetles of some sort) on the pillow and underneath the top sheet of one of the beds. My wife and daughters were grossed out. Hotels.com responded to our complaints by giving us a credit toward our next reservation. I am satisfied with their response. But the hotel manager was less than compassionate, offering excuses instead of apologies. She moved us to another room for our second night. This second room was larger, cleaner and had more comfortable mattresses. The second night was much better than the first, but there is no excuse for the hotel not somehow reimbursing us for our first night's stay.

"A Short Walk to the Beach"
Adequate room in need of an update. Clean. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was basic but worked for me. If you want something more Denny's is a short walk or drive away. The proximity to the beach is the real standout feature of this location. It is walking distance, less than a 1/4 mile. Great opportunity for sunset viewing and a walk on the beach in the morning. Request a room away from the stairs. Footfall noise on stairs was an issue for me. At times I wanted to open the door and say привет as was certain the Russian Army was passing by.

"Great stay"
Very comfortable and clean. Located across the street from a resort with a restaurant and the beach. Easy to find and not far from stores and restaurants. Walls and doors canceled noise well. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was included and sported pastries, cereal, waffles, toast, hard-boiled eggs, and biscuits and gravy. Office is open 24 hours with an always full coffee pot and even offered things such as toothbrushes and razors. I wish the pool was open past 10pm though, and depending where your room is, if you are a smoker finding the designated areas may be a little confusing at first. Also, while there are plenty of staircases, making it easy to get to your room, there are no elevators which may be problematic if you have heavy bags.

"Good location"
The hotel itself is nothing special. Normal hotel bed, small room with an old crt tv, and a bathroom. Not bad, but not worth getting excited over. What I love about the hotel is the location (and the breakfast). It's just off the highway, but on a small road away from the city and within walking distance of a nice, quiet beach. It's a nice cheap place to get away from it all. p.s. the breakfast was great! Donuts, hard boiled eggs, biscuts and gravy, ect.

"Close to beach if willing to sacrifice comfort"
Rooms are outdated and even come with a classy tube television. We stayed a Friday & Saturday night for labor day weekend 2014. On Friday the power went out in the middle of the night and the smoke alarm would not stop beeping, the phones also did not work and the lobby would not answer when calling from my cell. I had to take down the smoke alarm and unplug it from the power source in the ceiling. The power receptacle next to vanity did not work and the coffee maker had not been cleaned. The bathroom tub was also not cleaned and the bed comforter looked dirty.

Hotel and room was nice an clean. There is an oversized hot tub which was nice until the kids at this hotel turned it into a pool which it is not. We booked this at the last minute in the summer/peak season, so the price we paid was way over what a 2 star hotel normally is, even at California rates.

"Good value, Almost beachfront"
I was apprehensive about staying in this hotel based on the reviews I read. However, we had a good experience for the two nights we stayed. Compared to the rates of other beachfront hotels, this is a good value if you're not looking for bells and whistles. We loved the hotel's location--within a very short walking distance of the beach and close enough to hear the waves at night with our window open. Check-in was a smooth, easy process. Clerk lady was very friendly. Our room wasn't glamorous or large by any means, but it was clean and met our needs. We did partake of the free breakfast, and they had everything we wanted. My only real complaint about the hotel is its condition. Its age is showing, and it badly needs some repairs. The staircase near our room had some rotting wood, and one of the steps had metal flashing that was rusty and sticking out a bit. This could very easily be a trip hazard for somebody not paying attention or carrying a suitcase up and down the stairs. The location of this hotel is really great, so I hope the owner will put some money into making the much needed repairs.

Over the past few years we have stayed at this facility over 2 dozen times. This was the second visit with in 3 weeks. The staff was surly and unreasonable. The room had hair clips, tooth picks in the carpet. Strangest of all the hot water in the shower would not stay constant temp. Fluctuating hot, cold warm and back again. The ice maker was out of order. The hotel wasn't full and will have one less room occupied next time we visit that area.

""It's old""
The hotel is located right off Hwy 1 so it's situated in a fairly decent spot. The hotel itself is very dated and the rooms were old and smelled bad. The TV didn't work in my room, so they moved me to another room which needed a new sink and shower.... Not worth the money, for another 30.00 dollars I could have stayed at the Hotel Pacific which is a 4 star hotel.

"@@beware@@ This is a -1 star hotel@@"
Rooms smelled, had a "suite" family vacation, two rooms oddly joined buy the entrance door only. In one room the AC did not work,upon arrival we turned on both units, left for a few hours came back one room cool the other not, called front desk, they seemed almost confused as how to respond. Employee told me manager on the phone, she will talk to her and see want she "wants" to do....tick tick... 20 mins later nothing I call again, no apology, just told oh the manager now left the office and she did not get to speak with her, she will try again. More time goes by, maintenance comes looks at filters, turn the buttons and says he will be back, and you would assume at this point problem would somehow be remedied, we'll you would be wrong, we were ignored. Call a few hours later, told employee of situation and how five hours later we are still waiting, the reply was I don't know, I will check..tick tick day one and no response, we slept with the doors to each room open so the AC from one room could cool both. We stayed two nights, never had a manager contact us, maintenance never came back either. 2nd left room at 7am arrived back at 345pm...room not cleaned! Horrible service, smelly room, not well kept, and they do not care at all. I recommend you pay a little more in monterey to get something better, I have learnt my lesson.

"Not good. At All."
I can only use 1500 characters here. Not enough to say how bad this place is. First, the person at the front desk was personally offensive and unprofessional. Second, the housekeeping didn't visit our room. Third, I told the manager about the room and she pretty much called me a liar when I explained the "Do Not Disturb" sign had never been hung up. Fourth, the air conditioning unit made loud noises all night making it hard to sleep. Fifth, the manager was rude when I tried to get a late check out. She also said the hotel had no vacancy the next night, but I could rent it for another night if I really wanted the late check out which is inconsistent with it being filled up. I would not stay here again. I would not let anyone I know stay there either.
