We stayed overnight as a pit stop on route to San Francisco. We visited nearby Point Lobos State Park, drove through Carmel, drove the 17 mi drive and ate in Monterey. The hotel was mostly clean, up to date and provided a complimentary breakfast. We had a double queen room with a pull out couch. I said mostly clean as when we pulled out the sofa bed there were crumbs, debris, toys etc. in view under the couch. They need to vacuum and clean under the sofa more frequently. Otherwise, everything was comfortable.
If you are looking for a modern, sleek hotel with all of the amenities, this is going to disappoint. But if you would like to step into the world of 1960's road trip motels, this place is perfect! The 1950 building has not been updated, nor have the amenities (the tiny, heavily perfumed soaps; the shampoo that isn't quite shampoo). If you want high end items, of course you can bring your own, or you can buy wonderful soaps and natural cosmetics in town, a few blocks away. Breakfast is included, and once again belongs in the 60's-- make your own waffles, Folgers coffee (I think), and toast. I believe the motel was included in the 1971 Clint Eastwood film Play Misty for Me, which adds to the historical connection.
