El Castell Motel, Monterey
Great stay!
The hotel wasn’t great! Clean, quiet and comfortable. They allow dogs ($30 pet fee) and have some grass along the side of the buildings to walk them. The area didn’t have a lot of options for food nearby, but we got pizza delivered.

Incredibly FILTHY!!!
Sofa chair, walls, towels, pillow cases, & linen are all very stained. The room smells. The shower walls were filthy, and a used soap bar was still present in the shower from previous guests. The hangers were dismantled because they were broken. There were dead bed bugs smashed onto the bathroom wall.
