Ghettofabulous

Pros: Uh, I was able to get some sleep from 3:00- 7:00, and take a shower when I woke up.
Cons: Demolish it, rebuild with new owners.
Location: Well, if you frequent liquor stores.......
This was the motel that had only room available within a 60 mile radius. We were on our return trip home and needed a room with 2 beds. It smelled like they just painted the room that morning. Looks like someone tried to upgrade it without knowing what they were doing. Vinyl/ wood floors? Not even a lamp? At least there was a TV. A lot of noise from outside and adjoining rooms until 2-3 in the morning, luckily we could turn the TV on to help cover it up a little. I traveled for years in a band and have seen my share of crappy hotels, but this time I was with my wife and kids. If this is the only place around with an available room vs. sleeping in your car, I'm not sure I'd make the same choice again at $150 for the night. Beware, it's Ghettofabulous.

Not worth at $125/night

Pros: The hardwood floor, which is a little better than dirty carpet.
Cons: Many, many things. See above.
Location: About 30 minutes from Monterey.
Upon entering the office, was shocked to see bulletproof glass separating the front desk from the customer, and made me wonder just what horrible kind of a place is this? Although travelocity didn't complain when I reserved with American Express, the motel would not accept it. Most of the motel was vacant, but they chose to house a family right next to ours. And the walls are paper thin. You can hear everything from the next room. The closet had no light, no clothes hanger. The door had no peephole, a flimsy lock and a deadbolt. The blanket had large stains. The lady at the front desk spoke poor English. No refrigerator in room. First time in ages of seeing a cathode tube TV! Everything about this place screams old, old, old. They should be ashamed of charging what they do.

Bullet proof glass is protect our employee, just like many banks now have that. The pictures online shows exactly what was in the room, which is no fridge and cathode tube TV. There was no false advertisement, so not sure why this was a surprise to you. $125 a night which includes 3 beds (6 adults), is the lowest price in the market. To a point its even lower than 2 beds price. However, I do apologize for the front desk not accepting Amex. I will speak with them and take care of that issue.
