Clean room. Comfortable bed. Toilet leak kept refilling every 10 mins and was loud. Hairdryer showing sparks. Front desk doesn't post when open and coffee is served there. Waited to 7-7:30 in order to get a cup of coffee since none is in room. Overall, it's a good budget hotel (paid 41/night plus 10 service fee/night).

Ants, stains and dirty pillow shams
This place was not good. I noticed there were pillow shams on two of the pillows. I moved them behind the regular pillows and when I laid down I noticed a smell. It turns out they don't wash the shams, they smelled like other people. Then I noticed some stains on the coverlet. That was really gross. At night, it occurred to me that they were infested with ants. The ants were all over the bathroom sink area, so I had to move all of my things to avoid getting ants on it. They clearly updated the room, but all lighting is overhead which is not good for creating a comfortable atmosphere. The fixtures really need to be updated too, as they are very out dated and hard to operate. I requested a late check-out to accommodate some morning plans and have access to a shower. The first person (kid) I asked at the desk didn't know about late check-outs. So eventually the night manager called me and approved the late check-out. In the morning, I left for an hour and a half and returned around 11:15am (minutes after regular check-out). Someone had come in the room, saw all of my things and proceeded to removed every towel from the room but one. Clearly they had not been informed about the late check-out. I went to inform the front desk and let them know about the ants, but no one was there to talk to. I waited for a bit and left. Other reviews make it sound like this place is good. It's not. Do not stay here, don't waste your money.

It was all good!
Came to Monterey to see a Robert Earl Keen concert! Check in took a grand total of 15 seconds! Room pre-paid and key was waiting for me at the desk! Clean, quiet, great price. Coming back soon!

The "Type of trip" selections do not include "Event" or "Entertainment". I was in Monterey for an event. My previous, and next, nights in Monterey were just a stop en route to Southern California so "En route" or "Stop over" might be additional selections. The motel was just fine. No complaints. Have stayed there before; might stay there again.
