it was very noisy, between the noisy people upstairs until at least 11:00 at night, to the very noisy traffic outside. The lock on the bathroom window was broken, so even closed, did not give a lot of security. There was no air conditioner, so very stuffy. Where most hotels breakfast, this one did not, and for the price, was very disappointing! Much better accommodations in Solvang for a cheaper price!

Very much like home!

Pros: Fireplace, windows you can actually open, comfy bed, water was definitely hot!
Location: Everything we were looking for was about a mile away or less: historic downtown for shopping, fisherman's wharf, and of course Monterey Bay Aquarium!
Fireplace in upstairs unit, how cozy is that?! This room felt more like a room in a friend's house than a bleached-out standard hotel room. What a lovely place!

Great Experience

Great value for the price. The room was very clean and comfortable with good Comcast cable TV and a small refrigerator. Excellent location within easy walking distance of many restaurants and the downtown and the wharf area (about a 18 minute walk to the end of Monterey’s Old Fisherman’s Wharf pier). The staff was super friendly and helpful and there was the nice perk of your choice of a homemade raisin cookie or muffin upon check-in. You can park your car in the parking lot before the 3 PM check-in and bicycles are allowed in the room. The bathroom only has a shower and no bathtub and the bathroom vanity is a bit small. As with most motels in Monterey there is no A/C but a portable fan is available (bring an extension cord so you can position the fan to where you what in the room). There’s some traffic noise but it was not loud enough to bother me and I am a very light sleeper. If you use a Garmin or similar GPS receiver, please note the location for ‘Villa Franca Inn’ is not quite accurate. The GPS announces that you have arrived at your destination on El Dorado Street when inl actuality you need to drive further on El Dorado to the intersection with Munras Ave to see the motel entrance on the right (for a more accurate location use the 900 Munras Ave street address of the motel).

Great stay

The manager Corey had great recommendations for food and other sightseeing. The Inn was clean and walking distance to downtown. The fireplace was great to have each night as we fell asleep. We will definitely stay here again.
