The hotel room was a bit dingy, dust acculumlated in the corners, cleaning product residue in the bathroom, holes in the towels. We stayed there because we waited too long to book a hotel and it was just about the only place left. Its one redeeming quality was the service of the hotel manager/owner. He was very friendly and hospitable.

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful! The room was very small and out dated. Their was an iron imprint on the carpet. Bedding was old looking and less then desire able. We stopped just to sleep and it was perfect for doing that I wouldn't stay more than one night tho.

"No frills night's sleep"
After reading lots of Expedia and Trip Advisor reviews, I was just hoping to be able to stay in the room. :) the bathroom was spacious and clean. The fireplace was nice. The motel court felt safe. The room smelled clean. The edges were definitely cruddy with dust and fuzz. The chair by the fireplace - well the wife wouldn't even set the luggage on it. LOL. The fridge smelled too strongly of cleanser to use. The ice machine (across the parking lot) put out great, clean ice. We slept well. You probably will, too. For cheap, close to town, simple lodging this did fine. If you're squeamish, spend the extra quid and go to a chain motel. We love supporting "mom and pop's" we would probably stay in a motel like this again.

On our first morning was woken up to the manager banging on one of the customers doors and then they procedded to get into a shouting match about paying the bill...I thought I might need to call the cops:( Peoples were coming and going at all hours so it made me wonder exactly what all was going on there.

"Easy choice for a quick trip"
The owners/ staff were very kind and helpful. The place was conveniently located and easy to get to. Not the fanciest of places but comfortable and had a nice gas fireplace in the room. I would definitely go back. Too small for a lot of people but great for traveling alone or with one other.

"Aweful experience"
We were visiting Monetery in the last weekend and stayed in the hotel for a night. The rooms are really small and not at all look like what it shows up in the pictures. They are below ordinary. The bathroom was dirty and smelled really bad. The complementary breakfast was happened to be one piece of muffin or so and some really really dilute cheap coffee. We are really disappointed with the overall experience.

"The bed was clean and the staff were great"
The room was so dirty, especially around the edges. The lights and electricity didn't work well. I hated to walk around barefooted. I dropped a hair clip near the toilet and it landed on the floor, and I really, really hated to pick it up. I let it soak for a few minutes in hot water and then washed it. There wasn't a coffee pot in the room, nor a hair dryer. These are normal items usually found in a hotel room. I had to move the lamps to read by the table. It just wasn't conclusive to relaxed stay. I only need a place to sleep and coffee in the morning. the rest of the time, I spend with family and I was very disappointed with this room. If I hadn't pre-paid, I would have found another hotel for the rest of my stay.

"Not coming back"
I was only planning to stay for one night in Monterey on this weekend and I decided I'll book a cheap hotel for a night. The person minding the office is a very nice man, he even let me print out a voucher that I forgot at home. But the condition of the rooms are not in very good condition, molds in the bathroom, old sheets it was unpleasant, they could do cery well if they upgrade furnitures and sheet. The TV is still that big tube thingy.

"If needing a place to stay it will do."
Beds are comfy but rooms are basic and very dated. Also the complementary breakfast is a quarter slice of muffin. No fruit or anything just a quarter slice of muffin. They might as well not say breakfast at all. Internet was slow. But if you have to stay some where it was ok for a night. Would look at other places next time.

"Bring you own supplies"
This motel was shelter. I will say the manager was very welcoming and he did tell us there would be a breakfast in the morning and there were muffins and orange juice and coffee. The King size bed came with small pillows and my husband stated he felt like we were camping! LOL! The price was the reason we chose to stay here. I guess it's true that you get what you pay for. We had a roof over our heads and a place to lay our heads. Just make sure you bring your own pillows, soap, shampoo and whatever else you may need. The fireplace was lovely!

"Run down and no effort made to make the rooms nice"
It was an unusually warm day and the room did not have A/C. It was a little stuffy until the sun went down. The room looked like a thrift store. The furniture was beat up and décor was old. With just a little effort this motel could be cute. Owner or manager was nice, but needs to spend a little money updating. With tax, it came to $73 for a night. It was way overpriced, but that goes with the area.

I paid $217 for a cheap hotel because there was a concert nearby. This place shouldn't charge more than $80 a night. Mold in the bathrooms, no hot water in the sink, curtains didn't close all the way to shut out the bright parking lot lights. I wouldn't stay here again.

"Disappointing and Over-Priced"
The furniture was falling apart--the desk drawer had been broken out of the desk, for example. The carpet was thin, stained, damaged. Walls hadn't been painted in many years. The room was so dingy that it was hard to tell the level of cleanliness. There were flimsy towels, though clean. It had soft beds, old pillows. We knew it would be expensive to stay in Monterey at this time of year, but this was painful given the poor quality. The hotel manager was very kind and gracious, which offset our impression slightly.

"OMG"
Easily one of the most disgusting places I've ever stayed. There were holes in the walls that were "patched" with taped pieces of paper. The door had a hand written note on it that said, "OPEN" with an arrow pointing upwards. (BTW, the door lock didn't work properly. It either didn't open after it was unlocked, or it didn't lock. I ended up propping a chair against the door when I went to sleep.) The shower had the instructions, "pull hard" written in marker above the handle. Oh, and no AC. It was a very, very disgusting place and a horrible start to a week-long road trip.

The pictures on the web are very old when it was called the Blue Lagoon. It's now brown without the colorful landscape. The room was very old and the floors were very dirty. There was no AC and the so called breakfast was weak coffee and a few muffins cut in half. And to top it all off they charged $250 average per night!

"Beware!"
The photos of this lodge does not depict the actual place. The photos are much nicer and they are NOT the photos of the Fireplace Inn. I was given a room which smelled of cigarette smoke and there was actual cigarette ashes in various places of the room. The innkeeper, though pleasant, did not accept my complaint about the unpleasantry of the smell in the room but did hand me a can of Glade air refresher. The room was so disappointing I was almost in tears. I had waited weeks to take my son on vacation to Monterey and this was absolutely not what I had intended for us. The room is very small, the carpeting so dingy it actually felt dirty to walk on in bare feet, the curtains were dusty and wreaked of cigarette smoke as well as the lamp shades. The furniture had broken pieces, etc. It was just poor. This place could really use Hotel Impossible. The room was definitely not worth what I paid. I checked out early and was given a partial refund for the second night.

This hotel needs updating. The man was extremely kind and wanted to help when I had questions. But the towels didn't seem clean. The bathroom was clean. The furniture was too big for the room. And they needed an area for luggage which they could easily add with a closet. The hotel is among other hotels in area with restaurants that make it convenient.

The hotel was close to the event which was great. It was dirty, though. The bathroom did not look clean. The mini fridge blocked the only walkway. The smoke detector didn't work- I pressed the button to check. They did not give us the complimentary toiletries the first day, and they only left us one washcloth. The bed was fairly comfortable. Overall, I would not go back.
