Great location close to Monterey and Cannery Row. It was worth the price on a budget, clean and comfortable and the staff were all friendly. Having a simple breakfast before heading out the door was also nice. We will stay here again next time we head to Monterey.

The room was nice and clean the comforters were nice and pillows were comfortable. The bed was great. We ate breakfast only one morning but it's good for the price. Will stay again. Location was great close to Monterey Bay and Carmel By the Sea. Also can drive to Hearst castle, Big Sur, and hike nearby.

This is a very low cost accommodation, and if you are looking for luxury, look somewhere else. However, if your requirements are clean, comfortable, convenient and inexpensive, this is your place. The rooms are good sized, two nightstands, dresser, desk and chair. There is a refrigerator and microwave in every room. Yes, it is worn and in need of repair...

We were excited about finding a reasonably priced place to stay and were relying on the tripadvisor reviews that the rooms were clean and comfortable. As usual, the reviews were spot on. The rooms were nothing special...about what you'd expect for under $100, but they were clean and the bed was comfortable. The room had a refrigerator, which I'm finding...
