      Clean and comfortable enough rooms, at a fair price

      No real attempt made to honour "adjacent room" request for the second room we had booked. So-called "Continental breakfast" appalling: a styrofoam cup of orange juice, half a croissant (buttered, but stale) and muffins cut in quarters, collected from reception: that was it, so would be better not to advertise or offer "breakfast" at all. Also, unclear what the pre-advised but rather strange "service charge" of $3.50 per room was all about.

      Clean, friendly, convenient, comfortable, quiet.

      The room was clean and the location was central to everything.

      What drew me to Padre Oaks, aside from the reasonable price was the continental breakfast and pool. This motel had neither. The pool was empty and when I asked the staff why they said because it was hardly used and that they were going to get rid of it. The continental breakfast was a small cup of powdered orange drink advertised as orange juce and muffins cut into 4's and half of a crossiant. I have never stayed anywhere else with a breakfast as bad as that. The pool and the continental breakfast should be removed from their ad.

      Location was as advertised, convenient to downtown Monterey and easily accessible from the Highway 1 freeway.

      The room was old and small, and minimally equipped. There was no closet or room to hang anything, other than a single hook on the bathroom door. There were no towel racks or bars to hang towels. There was no place to sit and watch tv, other than the bed. The bathroom looked like it dated from 30 years ago. The coffee machine routinely turned itself off after about 30 seconds, during which time it ran less than 1/2 cup of coffee. The tv channel selections were minimal. The decor was generally dingy, and the outdoor lights stayed on all night, making it difficult to sleep. Finally, there was no air conditioning or other way to deal with the humidity that comes with the frequent fog on the Monterey Peninsula.

      It was cheap and close to the mall.

      The staff was hard to understand and was incredibly rude. The bed was uncomfortable and there long black hairs all throughout the bed. The website said they have a pool but it obviously hadn't been filled in quite some time. When you turned the light on in the bathroom, the fan shook so loud you couldn't hear yourself talk. The "free wifi" is exactly that: free and barely works.

      It was a very quiet enjoyable stay,the room was clean and I only wished there would have been a better continental breakfast

      Close to Monteray Bay

      Pillows were very hard. Breakfast was very basic and not what I would call continental.

      The room was clean. Bathroom newly updated. The staff was friendly, shy and helpful. The bed wasn't the most comfortable; but slept well and woke with no stiffness. I thought it was just right for the money. Would stay here again. I did suggest they get rid of the pool and install a hottub.

      The price was the only item I really liked. They have made a few upgrades, the bathroom had new marble flooring and counter tops and the shower insert appeared new as well.

      The mattress was very old as were the blanket and sheets. The sheets and the towels in the bathroom were threadbare and had stains. The blanket was threadbare and almost looked like it had cigarette burns in it. The bedspread was very old and dated. The free wifi was very spotty and inconsistent.

      It was a very bad place to stay....the bed was so uncofortable and made my back ache. The pillows were also very uncomfortable. Lots of noise and the owner was constantly walking the premises as if one was going to steal something. When checking out, the owner walked to the room to make sure everything was still there. There was a smal face towel that she pointed out that was missing but was just misplaced. Their towels were so rough. Worse place to stay!!!

      It was nice to be in Monterey.

      The hotel staff was rude and unaccomodating. I found hair on my pillow and the blankets on my bed were dirty with holes. When I called the front desk and asked for clean bedding they were angry and acted like I was asking for something that was unreasonable. They also made comments that they were upset because we had booked online and got a better deal than they offer. The pool was closed

      Affordable, clean, mostly quiet, excellent location to freeway/shopping/beach

      Small, somewhat cramped for 2 adults; somewhat rude hotel manager; very loud bathroom fan; extremely hard pillows on bed; free internet was touchy at times and very slow; no working pool; thin walls; small parking lot.

    • Family with children

      Definately not what I expected, but it was only for one night. I felt that the linen could have been alot cleaner as well as the carpet. Overall will choose another hotel when visiting Monterey.

    • Family with children

      Housekeeping and cleanliness were good.

      Front desk assistance was poor. We were given the wrong room on check-in (single king rather than 2 double beds)--corrected, but with no apology. A request for half-an-hour late checkout (mentioned as a special amenity for this motel in AAA) was curtly refused with no explanation. Apparently the TV remote control for the next room also controlled our TV, which turned on by itself several times. A small refrigerator, microwave oven, and coffee-maker were not plugged in when we arrived--perhaps they didn't really want us to use them. Overall, the management did not seem to be at all interested in our convenience and concerns.

    • Couple

      Internet wasn't good. Disappointing breakfast. I had a real deal (70$ instead of 220$). 70$ is okay for the room. 220 is way too expensive.
