Monterey Surf Inn, Monterey
Good Value for Location, Some Drawbacks
I would say this is a decent budget choice in the Monterey area. The Exterior is inviting and fairly well maintained and the check in was pleasant and professional. All I ask of a budget motel is that it be clean, modestly well maintained, have a modestly comfortable bed with an atmosphere that allows me to get sleep. On most of these I would rate them average to above average with the exception of the bed and atmosphere. The bed was as hard as if I was sleeping on a slab of concrete. I actually had parts of my body get pins and needles because the circulation was cut off and I ended up having to use the extra pillows to lay on on the bed just so I could get some sleep. In addition I was awakened at 6 am by screaming children in the adjacent room that sounded like they were in the same room with me due to the paper thin walls. I do have to say that after an hour or so of hoping the parents would actually parent their kids, I called the front desk and the situation was swiftly resolved. If it weren't for the mattress I would have been able to provide a higher score...just be sure to avoid Room 9

Initial reservation was for a king bed. Called to change reservation to 2 beds, was told it would be an additional $25, I agreed even though it was $15 difference on line. Upon arrival I was told I had a balance due of $30. I argued that I had been quoted $25; the clerk said if I paid in cash it would only be $25. Room was average, service was nonexistent at best.

Not going back sent the wrong booking to the hotel so we had the wrong room. The toilet clogged. Weird flusher- no instructions. Loud fridge. Overall would not go back. Ever.

Not very clean
No smoke detector in room, there was hair in the bed, and the blankets seemed to be very old.

Very Good8.0
Worked well for the price; spent the savings on great seafood so it's a better deal than 200 $ lodging.
