Refuge From The Storm
Amazing for only 52 a night... close to my office and I was just too tired to fight those California traffic highways in the rain
Riki, us2 night trip
Inn By the Bay Monterey, Monterey
The location was great for walking distance to bars and restaurants- however our room smelled real funky and felt grungy and dirty. The bathroom smelled of urine. I wouldn’t stay here again unfortunately. There was a weird industrial looking HVAC system in the room to cool/heat that seemed like a garage type set up - with a curtain to pull back to cover it. So strange.

Inn By the Bay Monterey, Monterey
New towels and pillows are desperately needed!
The towels at the motel were like cheesecloth. We could actually see through one of them! Also, they only gave two bath towels per night, so I had to ask for more. The pillows were also awful. There was not one in the room that offered any support for your head and neck. The carpets were soiled. The retrofit heater/air conditioner was very loud. You could not hear the TV with it on.
