The clerk was very nice. The rooms are very small. The towels are very rough. Soda spray on the ceiling to look at all night and a few webs. No one came in and cleaned up room when we were out. My bed had holes in the mattress.

"worst motel in my travel life."
I found this motel searching in expedia web site and decided to stay here because it was cheap compared to other motels near Monterey Bay. But, it was not worth it. When I tried to pay at the final payment page, the total became changed. it charged $16 for the tax. However, it did not have any notice about tax in which it would charge for some services. The room was terrible too. It was cold inside, so I turned on the heater, but it didn't work properly. The air coming out was cold as if I turned on the air condition, so I could not sleep deeply and there were no necessary amenities such as a hair dryer.

"NOT SATISFIED"
I was disappointed in this hotel. I paid 99.00 for the night ( taxes included) through booking on the phone with Hotels.com. Tonight I see the rate is 49.00! It was crummy, old-fashioned, not in safe part of town. Overall - Not satified and would NOT RECOMMEND! I stay in hotels approx 20 night a year...this one missed the mark completely. Keep looking!

"Spend the extra money for a decent room"
We actually took pics and posted to Facebook about the ridiculously bad room we stayed in. Super small space. Very uncomfortable bed. Paper thin walls. Holes in bed sheets and bath towels. Bathroom door was notched out so it could open past the toilet. Closet is a rod attached to the wall, but no hangers. Positive note: free wifi and a mini fridge that worked.

"Please speak English..."
When I travel in the US, I expect someone at the hotel to speak English. When I got to there, I was tired and looking forward to relaxing after a long day. I went into the office (the size of a closet) and nobody was there. There were directions to ring the doorbell which I did. I could hear Indian music in the backroom that was obviously too loud because they couldn't hear me ring the door bell repeatedly. I pounded on the window and after 5 minutes, a lady came out. She didn't speak English, but she waived me outside to wait in the cold for someone else to come. He didn't speak English either, but gave me a key. Also, this place is next door to an adult book store which adds to my negative review.

"Next to adult store"
I was extremely dissatisfied with my stay for the price I paid. For $9 more I could have stay 1/2 mile away in a clean motel with free breakfast, gym, sauna and hot tub. The carpet at the Candle Bay was soiled, mold on the window curtains and in the shower curtain. Non working refrigerator, no microwave as promised. Next door was an adult book and video store and in a very sketchy location.

"A good value --"
The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The room included a desk and chair, suitable as a comfortable "side chair" for reading. The towels were not "luxury" by any means, but considering the price (one of the lowest rates we found in Monterey), this was a good place to stay.

I liked the hotel, my husband did not. We have two young children and sharing a room is hard. I liked the lay out of the room being in a L shape. It really helped with bed time. The bathroom had also been remodeled recently and it was nice. Nothing special about this hotel.

"Simple room, comfy bed"
The hotel is older and has an actual key instead of keycards (gasp lol...), but the room was clean and larger than expected and the bed was surprisingly comfortable which is always my main concern. Yes it's right next to an adult store but it didn't affect my stay at all. The office was only manned from 8-11 so beware if you require late checkin or early check out. Overall we had a pleasing stay and I slept like a rock on the nice firm bed.

"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.

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.

"Security alert"
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?

"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)

"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.

"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.

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.

"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!

"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.

"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.

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.

"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 :(
