The first 2 times we stayed we were happy with the conditions and price. That was several years ago. Spent our whole vacation there this weekend and was extremely disappointed in the conditions of our room. First the office is closed and you have to go across the street if you need anything. No phones, no ice, barely any hot water at least not for 2 people. The furnishings were old and ripped. The beds were sagging. The rooms smelled of mildew unless you kept the windows open. They say they are staying with the 50's decor...sometimes things need to be replaced or repaired like the furnishings, wall paper and ceilings. We love the people of Monterey, but will never stay at that motel again.
