Inn By the Bay Monterey, Monterey
Last minute getaway!
The room appeared clean until I noticed the coffee cup rings on the nightstand. Couldn't fall asleep because the bed was very uncomfortable. Although the toiletries are used in dispensers for cost effectiveness, I personally prefer having actual separate containers. On the plus side, it's a great location, close to downtown and the wharf. The customer service was excellent and the inn itself was very quaint. May consider staying again

No parking space had to fine one on the street. Should use parking permit from the hotel noticed people from hotel next door parking there. For that reason I find another hotel to go too

Great place to save on a hotel stay!
This is a great budget place. The staff was friendly and the room was decent. We had no problems here.

Nice motel and good room to stay in
Check in was easy and quick. The front desk was very nice and welcoming. I had a room with a large bed and a twin. The room was very clean and I enjoyed the air conditioning, the refrigerator, and microwave. Abrego/Munras is a busy street with lots of traffic. There were lots of bikers and the motorcycles were LOUD and the area had a lot of tourists. Still I liked how the Del Monte Mall is right up the street, two minutes by car, and the hotel is very close to some good restaurants and shops. The wifi worked well. My only complaint was that the bed was not real comfortable, but otherwise, I would stay here again in the future. They are also pet friendly (although I did not have my pet with me).
