Monterey Surf Inn, Monterey
Hotel is comfortable, but run down. Room smelled of pine cleaner when I first opened door so I had to air it out. It did not look dirty until I looked at the Shower Head. I realize that hard water is hard on fixtures but this shower head was rusted out and needed to be replaced ...What did bother me however was an unwillingness to check me in before 3 .... I arrived at 1:30 and He would not even come to the counter to tell me to come back ...the lady who checked me in after 3 was pleasant however, so I should not hold that against them.

was expecting better. slow wifi and no movies available. channels showed entertainment but when I clicked on them the property did not have them. Not even pay movies. Only local channels with lots of commercials Not very private Maid peered in my window while I was dressing to see if I had left. Probably should have tried knocking instead

You get what you pay for with the money. It was a comfy little room, convenient and close to the local attractions. Check-in was quick, but upon our arrival in our room it smelled strongly of cleaner that I had to air out the room. Our TV wasn't working as well. However, I let the manager know during after-hours and he went to fix it for us. It took about 10 minutes and it was fixed! I appreciated his effort. The room was equipped with a fridge and a microwave, but lacked a coffee maker. Wifi was also very fast in our room. I was hesitant after reading the reviews, but overall it was a good stay.
