The beds were comfortable
Nothing worked, it had a microwave and a fridge... But the outlets didn't work.. Had to put the microwave in the bathroom since there are no other outlets.. Had a table with no chairs, no iron either... And don't waste your time on the free breakfast they didn't even have creamer for the coffee
I liked the location, there is all kinds of stores around there.
I stayed five days and you can hear the noise from the freeway all night long and that makes it hard to fall asleep. One day when I got back from working all day and was going to take a shower there was no towels in the bathroom and another day they didn't make the bed.
Handicap parking. Quiet. Refrigerator good. Telly good reception, many channels.
1. Telly did not work until next day. 2. No bathmat as one steps out of the shower onto tile with water, slippery for handicap room. 3. Had to constantly call for adequate number of towels. 4. Hall light out, clerk refused to replace it. 5. No tissue box, even though tissue wall holder was empty, clerk refused to refill it. 6. No one would answer phone late at night, nor earlier than 10 a.m., 7. Overcharged $4.80, taken off credit card. 8. Clerk would not give contact number for franchise owner. 9. As Motel 6 the standard, an 8 rating, Best 5 Motel, 5 rating, with 1 lowest; 10 highest. Very disappointed will never stay in this particular Best 5 Motel again!
Economical compared to Lodging for the Monterey Jazz Festival!
The BED was Horrific! Needs to be REPLACED!
No breakfast though supposed to be part of the deal. No coffee. Room card kept failing. Had to go to office for toilet paper. Internet dropped out continuously. No remote for TV in room so had to go to office again. CSI cars present one morning. Too close to freeway noise. Linen thin and never tucked in. Towels flimsy.
a) All towels were dirty. One towel literally looked like the previous guest ran out of toilet paper. b) Bathroom wasn't cleaned up at all. c) Way to shabby for that price.
The guy at the desk was very friendly
The price and facilities
Room smell stale decor, no drinking, no early 歺 after nine o'clock, in such poor conditions, actually every night room rate of $ 200 dollars.
Basic inexpensive accommodations, right at the Freeway on/off ramps. Across the street is a 7/11 store which is convenient for the sort of stuff they sell, plus cheap gas for the car. .
Convenient to the Freeway ramps means a certain amount of Freeway noise. Freeway noise is very minimal on the ground floor rooms.
we booked by booking.com for 4 nights to make vacation alsoon the pool. Pool was not available because pump defect.Total green because of alga - not even chairs available. Woman at desk did not accept cancelation. Booking.com would be responsible and could do it. After several telephone call with booking.com and over a week not a full refund.
cooler didn't work well breakfast not good
When I checked in at 2:00 a.m. I found the bed I was to sleep on was filthy. It had been wet on and the mattress cover had hold in it. I went into the office to report it. The night clerk was shock and the other person who was part of the family who ran it ask me if it was still wet. I got a new mattress cover and a blanket so I could get some sleep. I had just drove over 10 hours and was very tired. I took pictures of the mattress and showed the couple the next morning how filthy it was. I did turn it into the health department. Have one of your company members check the place out and check all the mattress. Everyone I talk to in Salinas just laugh because they already knew by word of mouth what it was like.The couple who runs it are from country where filthe is common so they need to learn what being clean is.
Towels were dirty and shower door didnt close and leaked water all over floor
It was disgusting.
Was given 2 towels, one was covered in dirt, the other was partially covered with dirt. Couldn't believe my own eyes. I felt like I was in europe, the rooms were small, and just gross and dirty. Paid 90 bucks for a room only because I got last minute festival tickets in Monterey. Will never return here.
Price it was affordable for a week but now experiencing the place I now know why it is so cheap
Everything else, from waiting for four hours to get the room we booked a week in advance to the lady at the front desk waking us to ask if we were to check out (when we already paid in cash for a week) so when we answered no she very rudely told us to pay or leave to just about everything the place sucked
clean well located last available
general condition of the property very tired
nothing...breakfast is only a mirage...
everything was dirty in the room...we just sleep and go further asap!! also monterey was not so cool as expected...go to the sud of the california guys!!
Unfriendly, mean staff. Dirty cramped room which we were charged $200 a night for. Pool obviously not cleaned for sometime and informed that this was out of service due to acidic reasons but did not say on website. Breakfast only bread to toast, a packet pastry and coffee put out in a small dingy reception area with limited seating. Bed mattresses soft, very uncomfortable. Air conditioning noisy and inefficient. Tiny room Dirty bathroom.
Shower leaked maid service put new towels but did not make bed.Some days my towels I would not use them to check my oil.I guess they never heard of bleach.
Hotel room was clean. Easy access to the freeway. Reasonable prices, especially for weekend stays. Some of the best prices available for Laguna Seca racers.
Disappointing box tv from the 90s. Situated next to a freeway on ramp that every Honda with a muffler had to wake the dead until 3am. I had to look at the horrible hotel next door that i stayed in the previous weekend.
Evrything is very old and shabby. That is the reason it also felt dirty. Pool was not working, was not told when we booked. Sheets were clean but blanket was so old and terrible looking. Shower with mildew. Breakfast was terrible actually you can not call that breakfast. If they charge 40 dollars maybe it is reasonable but we payed 120 dollars wich is outrages for this ......."motel".
WiFi was working. Clean.
Bathroomdoor hard to open. Breakfast was pathetic. Everything used up - we had to ask for more toast. Pool out of service.
They had cable
The location and quality of the hotel was not pleasant. Cops showed up and it was not clean. It was not worth the pay.
