Guest reviews for Candle Bay Inn

1 out of 5

OK for one night

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
My grown daughter and I stayed here on 9/30/2012. The room was clean. The mattresses were thin but they were foam and I guess supposed to be thin. The check in clerk was nice and there was free internet. However because we needed two beds there was really no place to use a computer. We did not feel the room was comfortable, but was ok for one night. Do not take children here as there is no place for them to unwind. No breakfast but a Denney's across the street. I booked this because I saw it several times while in Monterey and was cute.

Cheap Motel that was, frankly, cheap

Rented two rooms for 6 people - one with 2 beds, one with 1 bed. One-bed room smelled like propane or NG. Both rooms had toilet stoppage problems - not serious, but not fun, either. Not a place for folks with small children. Next door to a so-called adult bookstore. Walking distance to a Longs Drug for basic groceries. Walking distance to a Denny's restaurant - if you go to the corner light for safety. I'd stay again because it is the least expensive place in the area that I found....
