El Castell Motel, Monterey
Very Good8.0
Great clean motel with great access to airport. Not much food in area, but at least 1 restaurant in walking distance. Room was small, but all we needed for the night before a flight out. The AC unit was a bit loud and was not very efficient, but otherwise we were Avery happy with the room.

Very uncomfortable stay
When we arrived, the lady at the service counter was rude and unfriendly because she was busy on her phone. The pool times are were only from 9am-9pm. We wanted to relax in the pool after dinner but it was already too late. The beds were not comfortable. When we woke up the next day, me and my partner had back and neck pains from the bed. On the website it said that they serve gourmet breakfast, but instead the breakfast was like from a cheap motel. The boiled eggs were over-boiled and tasked funky. They were out of bananas. When we checked out, the same woman was on the counter. she had her headphones on and was again talking on the phone.

Worth staying again
Nicely appointed, rooms a bit small, but probably built in the 1950s. Some noise from night club next door at 1 am.

Good amount of space in room and good size beds. Loved the mirror in the bathroom and the full length one.
