"Monterey Visit"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 26, 2014
OCPhotoRob | Orange County, CA
There are a lot of hotels in Monterey. They seemed to be very nice but very expensive or very reasonably priced but old and simple. I selected La Quinta because it was in between. The atrium style hotel is a bit different. The ground level is parking, lobby which includes the breakfast room. Then there are 2 floors of rooms. My room was very spacious with a king size bed, table, 2 chairs, a sofa and a desk. There was a refrigerator and a desk. There are no real grounds to the hotel. It is literally just in the border of Monterey from Seaside. It is adjacent to a lagoon which was a nice view and a short walk on the lovely park like path to the beach. There is a Chili's and a McDonalds just a couple blocks away. The heart of Monterey is about a ten minute drive. The breakfast includes cereal, oatmeal, that dreaded waffle maker, muffins, toast, English Muffins or Bagels (different each day), oranges and apples. There is a hot breakfast option which I wasn't expecting - scrambled eggs and sausage or bacon. As is the case in most of these places there was not enough tables for the number of people. The bed was very comfortable. The only problem I had was with the air conditioner which was fixed within a half hour. Overall a nice place.

La Quinta Monterey is a clean, quiet, conveniently located and well-managed hotel. Parking was partially covered, it was free and it was possible to park right outside the reception when unloading your luggage. The room was a good size and Wi-Fi was free. Breakfast was on a self-serve basis, but it was good and fresh.

"Unfortunate location"

The location is its worst drawback. You have a view of a busy street or a highway. Rooms are very noisy, too. Couldn't sleep well until the guests above and their children settled down after midnight. The room was clean. The bathroom was large; water efficient! The breakfast was great. Nice to have a hot waffle for breakfast instead of cold rolls. Bittersweet vacation.

"good basic hotel"

Front desk was helpful and courteous upon our arrival. The clerk offered to give us any help we needed including tips, what to do, or directions. The breakfast was good and was a blend between a continental and hot breakfast. I would this as a good hotel for a bargain price.

This hotel is in an ideal location in Monterey. Right on Del Monte Avenue just at the edge of town so it is away from the hubbub but it is easy to get to all the attractions. GREAT desk staff. We will likely stay here again unless they change their dog-friendly policy to exclude small pets.
