No fan for air circulation, too much overnight noise in back lot, no coffee makerGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Candle Bay nightmare"
Manager was called to get directions to the motel. He hung up on me after I asked him to clarify what he said about directing me to the motel.He was hard to understand when I finally figured out how to get there. I tried to cancel the reservation because of the poor services and the room was in poor quality. He told me I couldn't cancel unless I gave […] him a 48 hour notice. So, I stayed and did not sleep well because of the people next to my room had the window and door opened half the night. I would not recommend this place for decent law abiding folks or anyone wanting a peaceful sleep, period. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A little disappointed"
The room was clean but there was no fan or air conditioning. The motel has no ice machine and no clocks in the room. When I called the office to ask for a wake-up call they said that service was not working. If you have kids, be aware that Candle Bay is right next door to an adult shop/theater, and a night club that's open til' 2 a.m.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Never ever stay at that place. I have never seen place that dirty, pull of living things that don’t belong there, room smelled horrible, paper thin walls so you can understand every word your neighbors are saying, no fresh air since you can’t open your windows for safety reasons, no central air or heater….If I could attached pictures, I would since […] who ever is reading this might think I am exaggerating. Front door was sooo bad that anyone from outside can just open with simple push. I have never lay in bed, I spend hours from the moment I checked in to the moment I checked out sitting on my suitcase. For Expedia: You should be sued for even recommending this place. For everyone else….spent the night at the shelter or the airport if you are flying out. For that price!!!??? Really? You consider this acceptable? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
no coffe cups. we need go buy our own .. bathroom not clean .. smell very bad..Genuine Expedia guest review
"A decent place to stay overnight"
The hotel is in a convenient location. The room was cute, clean and well kept, with a large bathroom, and the grounds were kept clean. Otherwise average. It's about what I would expect from the price we paid. I was surprised to find that the hotel oom door has no deadbolt -- I thought these were standard security nowadays? There was only a lock on the […] door handle and one of those chain locks which don't stop anything. It's in a convenient location. The only thing to be aware of is the adult store and "theater" next door, which attracted a few interesting characters during our overnight stay. No problems though. We would stay here again when in the area. 4/5 stars (for the price) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I stayed here because it was the only place open everything was booked!! This place had no a/c no breakfast (at all)!!!! We had to leave windows open all night to cool off and it never did cool off!!! No coffee pots!!! No iron!!! No blow dryer!!! I could not believe the cheapness of the management of this place!!!! Needless to say I would not stay here […] again or recommend it to ANYONE!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"cheap and ok"
this was a cheap hotel. i didn expect much and overall our experience was okGenuine Expedia guest review
"A place to sleep, rest and prepare. That's all."
All the very basic stuff was there except AC. Bathroom smell was funny. Not much space.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Avoid this hotel if possible."
If you are looking for places to stay in the Monterey area, try to avoid this hotel. The beds are rock hard, the linens were dirty, and the towels in the bathroom had multiple rips in them. Because of its location, there was excessive street noise until 1am on a Saturday night which made getting some rest impossible. An adult theater is literally right […] next door, and it made the whole experience that much worse. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Badly organisated and unfriendly staff"
We ordered a room online and when we reached the hotel we had to pay additional fee's. After I calculated everything againg trough we went back to get the money again because they made a mistake. A hotel which is not able to charge the customers correctly should be closed at once.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not very good, but not a bad choice either"
We book this hotel about 3 days before the trip, the facility is simple but clean, environment looks ok, not a bad choice at allGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sweet Little Spot"
Got in after 1am. I had called ahead anticipating my late arrival. The gentleman was awoken, but kind in accomidating me. The room was just what I needed, clean and neat. Felt safe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, small, inconvenient."
The rooms themselves are clean and tidy and there is parking available. Adequate if all you need is a place to crash. It's next to an adult studio, which is a little weird. The guy who runs it is also really surly and abrupt. Towels were small and thin, rooms are small, no real extras and no amenities not specifically listed. It was fine, but I wouldn't […] book there again. It's also a little out of the way for attractions in the Monterrey/Carmel area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Was desperate for really last min... Mistake!"
Right next to an adult book and video store. Hooker in one of the rooms asked us to move our car from in front of her room(?) She was waiting for a friend.... Moldy shower curtain. Very little water from the shower head. Hear in the tub. Not quite sure the sheets were clean. Not somewhere I would return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK in a pinch, nothing more."
beds were comfortable but found a plastic fork under desk that had been used by a former occupant. 2nd bed was in a separate room that didn't have any kind of bedside light, only a single light bulb on the wall and no other light source. . Didn't need to turn on TV--could listen to the one next door. Check in was perfunctory and adequate nothing mo […] re. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

sucks!!!!! toilet leaking,sink in room,not in bath room.justed suckedGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice motel, provides what you need."
If you have a car and don't mind living a five minute-drive away from the city centre, I would recommend staying here. Our room was clean, had exactly what they told us would be there, and it was one of the most noise-cancelling motels we stayed in during our trip through the US :) I'm not a fan of carpeted floor, but you find that a lot in the States, […] so.. The staff was also very helpful in providing extra blankets, which we really appreciated. You get what you pay for, but as a motel, I think this is a good deal! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Candle Bay Inn review"
The hotel was affordable, convenient, and very comfortable. My family and I enjoyed the local bowling lanes next door and the surrounding eateries. It was only a seven minute drive to Monterey bay attractions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"DISSAPOINTED..PAYED FOR A DIRTY HOTEL"
First and foremost this hotel is right next door to an ADULT STORE. We had our two boys and seeing this as I pulled up was very uncomfortable. The floor was dirty so we wore our sandals in the room. Good thing I took extra pillows and blankets cause theirs smelled dirty. The bathroom sink didn't drain and there was hair from people before us in the […] sink. And to top it all off the shower didn't drain. I was standing in like 5 inches of water. So we had to turn the water on and off to let it drain. Needless to say do not book this hotel, especially if you have children with you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"My Trip To Monterey..."
Well all I can say is you pay for what you get, The price was affordable and DENNY"S was across the street. The only issues I had were the sink and the tub. Both drainages had slow draining and it was an inconvenience other than that there was hot water. The room was nice and had a microwave and small refrigerator and tv.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel location and staff was great. Not clean!"
The biggest concern was that the room was dusty, food stuff under beds, bathroom sink dirty w/ toothpaste, bathtub full of hair and paper, making drain slow. Otherwise sufficient.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Relatively cheap and very practical."
If you need a decent place to spend the night at Monterey and keep some money in your pocket, this is one of the places that you should check.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not unless your desperate"
I stayed here last minute because everything else was full. I wasnt very satisfied. The room was really small, which I wouldnt mind if it didnt have a B.O smell to it. The bed grossed me out because the sheet wasnt fitted, so when you moved the bare mattress would show and I think that is disgusting. Wasnt too uncomfortable though. The room just had […] an overall feel of dirtiness to it but atleast the bathroom was newer and clean. If I spent 80 dollars or cheaper I wouldnt be complaining. But since I spent 150 on a one bed room, I expected a bit more. If you are looking for a decent cheap m otel I recommend the morning star or sea lamp inn. They arent amazing but overall clean and good price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Last Minute Reservation"
Hotel located in a row of other hotels. It´s located next to an adult store. I like the fact the the beds were in separate areas, one for the adults and one for the kids. Beds were listed as queen but they felt more like full size. We were able to park in front of our room. Could hear through the walls. No fridge or microwave but one is located inside […] office. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were pleased with our room, it was comfortable and clean. Bathroom have been remodeled and the grounds were pleasant. Carpet needs attention, but it has all you need, microwave and refrigerator. Other tenants were quite noisy, but then again I chose a holiday date to travel and that meant having to deal with lots of people. Overall, our stay was […] pleasant, price was worth it, and will stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for backpackera"
Booked by phone. a little bit too pricey for what it is i think.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Um, no hot water?"
The first night of our stay, my teenage daughter discovered there was no hot shower. Since there wasn't anyone in the front office, I chose to take a cold shower and alert them in the morning so we could switch rooms. When I spoke to the guy in the morning, he wasn't even sorry. He just said "oh yeah, I know. I'll fix it today but the entire hotel was […] out (smirk)." I think he was embarrassed but didn't apologize or try to make up for it. I demanded a credit which he agreed to but my credit card hasn't been reimbursed yet. I'll never stay there again :( Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Would have been a good basic motel, if the hot water heater's pilot light had not gone out, and if the clerk had known how to light it! Otherwise: it was clean; comfortable bed; good TV reception; phone in room that worked; refrigerator. Missed the morning coffee and recommend clothes hook on bathroom door and safety grip handle in bathtub.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"next to nude bookshop"
there was no charm to this motel at all. the bed was perhaps 30 years too old, very uncomfortable. appeared clean which is the only thing positive I could say.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Holes and Mold"
If you don't mind holes in your sheets or mold on your shower curtain this place is great!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap for a Visit"
The price was right if you are looking to save a few $$$. The room was stuffy, old, in need of new bed covers and rugs steamed cleaned. The bathroom was nice looking, toliet seat was not placed on correctly, shower head released water everwhere and the curtain had stains that makes one wonder what are they. The rooms are key locks. The area was quiet […] and the bed was ok not great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I paid 120.00 on a saturday last minute and regret. Room is so small with no microwave.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Great Little Motel for Everyone"
This motel has very good location. It was close to many of the major attractions in Monterey. It has highspeed wi-fi with amazing speed. This property is little small with smaller rooms than usual but good enough for people on travel. It is too small if you are living there for a month. Rooms were clean. Hotel staff was nice. No major amenities but […] it is perfect for the price. For breakfast we went to Denny's, which was literally right across the street. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not for children, or anyone"
Upon arrival, I was concerned about the adult theater next door. The front desk's response was "if you kid doesn't go outside, you'll be fine." Rooms would have been ok, but the bathroom smelled bad, & there was a hole in the door. Blankets had awful stains, sheets appeared to have been stabbed at several times, matresses so uncomfortable. Loud music […] bumping all night (Saturday), worst hotel experience of my life. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"inexpensive but cheap"
For three days, I was the only person there (out of 12 rooms); one day it rained, so the cleaning staff did not show up (I suspect the hotel told them not to come, but I have no direct evidence) It was clean, the refrigerator worked, and central in monterey, and very inexpensive, but I won't be backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Couldn't expect much for $54 or a 1.2 rating. Do yourself a favor buy a tent and sleeping bag at cvs next door for $20 and sleep on the beach. The view is amazing. Hotel almost worth the $54.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was decent but good priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room looked like a scene out of the movies Vacancy and Bugs!!! The room was outdated to the fullest down to the rugs, lamps, tv, toilet!! The only good thing I could say is it was super close to Cannery Row. We had gone on a whim and booked this hotel since we came from out of town and did not book earlier-BIG mistake. Hotel manager-very rude like […] I bothered him when I checked in at 4:15... Not a good experience would never stay here again. I would pay the extra $50 to stay in a comfy clean bed!

"old and run down"
old run down hotel horrible bedsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very basic room, no refrigerator or coffee set up, old mattress, slow wireless internet, but the room was clean and the location was fairly convenient for Monterey, PG and Carmel activities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Adequate for sleeping"
Bare minimum Motel, but adequate for sleeping overnight. WiFi was initially faulty, but still slow after then manager reset it. I was there during the expensive sold out August "car weekend" and the price was 80% of other hotels with twice hte comfort.Genuine Expedia guest review
"AVOID THIS HOTEL AT ALL COSTS"
Room was not air conditioned. The sheets smelled and had the appearance of not being washed. When I check in, the attendant greeting was not at all cordial or welcoming. Being that this hotel is next to a pornography bookstore, I gather that this hotel is probably frequented by those of ill repute.....Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't even think about this place!"
Worst Motel I ever stayed in.When you go into the office to check in you talk to someone threw a glass partition.pictures on web site show refrigerator & microwave, none in are room. No ice machine at Motel, no radio or alarm clock,no Kleenex. There is no way this Motel should have a 2 star rating. very old & shabby,needs complete renovation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Do not go there"
The worst hotel I ever know, the staff are really horrible, they claim high speed internet which is true except the fact it keeps disconnecting all the time,........... Motel 6 is cheaper and much betterGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok in case you can't find anything else"
Too much noise, from the street and in the hotel, the room was clean but uncunfurtableGenuine Expedia guest review
"Spend extra $30 and get another hotel"
We had a very bad experience --- the hotel room smelled like sewage and we were too tired to ask for a different room --- judging from the overall conditions, I doubt that any other room would have done much better. The smell really made me want to leave immediately, but we were on a budget so we had to put up with it. EVen after we opened the window […] you still can't escape the smell. Apart form this, the room was very old --- there was dust on the TV and the sheets looked clean but there were small holes in one of them. Overall, this is just a really old motel that needs a lot of maintaining. I'd definitely spend an extra $30 and get a better room from somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
