good location, i guess
rudest staff i've ever seen. breakfast is a joke, nowhere to sit. very thin walls, lound sketchy long-term tenants.
Very simple and cozy
For an older property, it was updated nicely. The people who checked me in were very nice. The bed was very comfortable.
a man's wiskers in the sink...I'm a woman.
Great place, great location. Minutes away from Monterey. Just remodel the room we stayed in on the thunderbird side. The gateway side was in the process of being remodel. It great place and value to sleep and rest. I will stay there again when visiting that area again.
Honestly none that i could think of.
Wifi, microwave, fridge
Noisy from neibourg and highway.
The room was had not been cleaned and the 'clean' sheets were stained. The water was brown and staff were extremely unhelpful and rude. Stay anywhere but here.
Terrible Service. Pathetic Customer service. And a regrettable breakfast. If possible, Do not stop there!
Basically clean, AC worked, adequate hot water. The location is close to restaurants and a grocery store. I liked (nothing to do with the motel) that Seaside has a street named Obamaway.
The on/off switches on the lamps were missing. To turn them on and off required finding the plug in behind the bed. The man staffing the front desk when I checked in was not very friendly, but upon checking out, his wife was very nice. I guess they balance each other.
Close to ocean
The bedding was dirty, there was hair and stains all over the mattress covers and the mattress had pee stains. And there was black stuff all over the it. The rooms smelled and gross. The bathroom toilet seat where stained. The carpet where musty. I would have rather stayed in my car, also the people that where i. The parking lots where really scary. Do not stay there. I dont know how the could even pass inspection with the health department, no kidding. You have been warned.
The beds were comfortable! It was close to Monterey, by the freeway! And close by a shopping center!
Our room was closed to a cigarette deposit and it stunk so bad in that area! The windows did not have mosquito screens, so we could not open the windows. The bathroom was shut off by someone while we stayed, so we had to call the guy at front desk! Also, the bathroom did not have hooks like most of the Motels & Hotels to hang your clothes! So we had to improvise! One of the young guy that works there had an attitude with us! The ice machine did not work in the first building of the motel.
Acceptable place considering the price of other lodging options. Rooms were clean and location was convenient.
Older and dated facilities in fair condition. The outside areas were dirty and cluttered.
We were there that particular weekend to move our daughter into CSU Monterey Bay. I wanted a room that was close to the school. The room was fairly clean inside, new paint, ect...There were no fitted sheets on the beds and the mattress was nasty. The bed was not for comfort. The location was great right on Fremont, but the outside of the motel was dirty, trash all over, handrail for the stairs was broken, shopping cart in the hallway. I wouldn't have stayed there if I were not desperate for a room for that weekend. I would not recommend this room to anyone.
dirty bottom of shower door
Free parking, fridge n ice machine.
Value to price ratio
Room not very big but clear. Window in the bathroom!
There is no choice for breakfast and there isn't a real space for breakfast
Location, Location, Parking
Mold in Shower & walls in Shower, Microwave poor power very old, Plumbing,Poor cleaning service didn't leave any new towels took old ones & left nothing, wall above toilet had hand lg.prints,I had to clean the wall it was just to much to look at. I can say more, Do I need to?
The room was clean and organised. The shower was roomy and the bathroom was clean. Overall a good place to spend the night in.
The air conditioning didn't work but it was cool out side so all we had to do was open a window and it cooled off the room.
Clean renovated room with nice new bathroom, good bed, nice clean linens and towels. Service was prompt and responsive.
Outside it is an old pretty run down place, but they are definitely doing their best to improve the rooms.
I new what the hotel was, but I don´t think it is a 150USD hotel. Bad wifi, unconfortable beds
It was nice that they had Wi-Fi and a balcony.
The staff was ridiculously rude and the room and bathroom were filthy dirty. The shower door didn't close. I put a do not disturb sign on the door and maid service still entered and threw away things that were not garbage. There was trash in the room when we first arrived. There was no blow dryer and the quality of towels were so poor they scratched you when you dry yourself off. If you have allergies then stay away because the dust alone will have you sneezing immediately.
The location was close to our intended destinations and the price for 2 nites was good! Free muffins and coffee in the morning were provided; plus a small frig and microwave. The TV had decent reception!
Staff fighting in the parking lot! A little noisy in the rooms and could hear the neighbor in the next room Snoring all nite!! Our bed for the first nite was so hard it felt like sleeping on a board!! The staff did change out the bed for us for the 2nd nite and it was Great!
Our room appeared to be newly renovated/upgraded - very nice, very clean; office personnel helpful & pleasant - great value!
