Monterey Surf Inn, Monterey
Very disappointing, the room was in desperate need of re-painting and we had lots of flies in the room. The bed was comfortable but head board was old with chips out of it and the floor even had pieces missing. Will not stay again.

Will not stay here agsin
Nail holes left in walls, towels smelled clean but almost thread bare in spots and stained, cardboard pieces ducktaped over what should have been outlet covers, very loud people in surrounding rooms partying, by night their was only one designated parking space next to the street and one vehicle was parked where there was not a parking space, creating a potential hazard for cars backing out. Bathroom window was big enough for someone to open and crawl through and had no lock-/ just a board to put in the bottom of the window when it was closed. And...the room smelled of smoke to top it off. The man st the desk and employees were friendly but they room was in bad shape.

Beds are comfy.....thats it
Id give this place 0 stars if I could. I only give it 1 star because the beds were comfy. Wouldve been better off staying at Motel 6 We reserved a room for 3 nights and left after 2 because this place was really bad. So many issues. Not inviting at all. 1.No one is ever in the front office. 2. Rooms had no closets, drawers, anywhere to put belongings away 3. A/C was noisy as hell, hard to sleep 4. The toilet felt like it was going to come out of the wall when it was sat on 5. The only thing separating the "shower" from the rest of the bathroom was a curtain. It not a real shower. 6. The advertise the beds as queen size and in reality they are only doubles 7. Pool was useless. Looks like its 20 years old and the birds love to bathe in there. 8. The "refrigerator" froze everything we put in it. All in all, this place sucked and I would NEVER recommend it to anyone

Moldy smell
The room had a weird moldy smell, the wood floor was uneven and the toilet would move everytime we would sit. The outside of the hotel was not clean ( trash). This place has potential but I guess the owners don't care. The funny thing was that the guy in the front was wearing medical gloves to handle my credit card.
