"It's a close proximity to other parts of the peninsula!"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 13, 2014

We've stayed at this hotel for convenience and great customer service. We live less than an hour drive so rather than rushing home and fight the traffic, we stay at this hotel for our overnight stay. Grew up on the peninsula so am familiar with the many spectacular sites that it has to offer. The hotel is approximately a 10-15 minute drive to Carmel, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, and Cannery Row. Nice continental breakfast, great service and an affordable hotel.

"Handy location"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 8, 2014
Mike H | Livermore, United States
My wife and I like to ride bikes for exercise as well as to see the sights, and this location is perfect for this. Paved route that takes you right to the heart of Monterey, for outstanding sights, history, some of the best dining you could ask for. The path takes you on into Pacific Grove if you wish (about 10 to 14 miles round trip).Beautiful and fun!

"Great value and quality if you are visiting Monterey"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 6, 2014
Jen1371 | Roseville, California
We stayed at the La Quinta Inn in Monterey over the weekend of August 1-3, 2014. This is a great hotel if you are looking to save money but stay somewhere comfortable while visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It's just inside the Monterey city limit on the Seaside side of town, so if you are heading to the 17 Mile Drive golf courses, Pacific Grove or Carmel it won't be as convenient but for an aquarium/Cannery Row trip it's a perfect location. It's nice and quiet but a very short drive away from the hustle and bustle of the wharf. Our room was clean, in good repair and plenty roomy for our family of five. The beds were comfortable and the linens were clean and newer. There were no weird smells and we didn't hear any noise from adjacent rooms. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Even though we were in Monterey during a very busy weekend the on site parking was plentiful and free. There is a complimentary breakfast every morning that, while not fancy, is more than adequate. Waffles, scrambled eggs and sausage were supplemented with bagels, muffins, toast, cereal, yogurt, coffee and juice. There is a path to the beach right next to the hotel and the famous Dennis the Menace park is on your left as you drive from the hotel to the wharf area. There is a shopping center with a grocery store, Target, Costco, Chipotle and more just a 3 or 4 minute drive into Seaside if you need beach supplies or groceries. If you tire of Monterey's grey skies the much warmer Watsonville beaches (Sunset, Manresa) are a short drive away and Santa Cruz is less than an hour from this location. We were very happy with our stay at La Quinta and would definitely recommend it to others and stay there again the next time we visit Monterey.

"Big enough for family"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 5, 2014

We travel with our two small children so I always like to give that perspective for other families looking for accommodations. In this case the La Quinta was great on space as the sofa bed was enormous! A queen size or larger popped out of the huge and updated couch in the room and there was still ample room with two upholstered chairs, a desk and plenty of space to move around. The furnishings and linens are updated and the bed and pillows very comfy. I would only mention that the pictures of the hotel almost suggest that it is on a larger property with adjoining green space and that is not the case. This hotel is wedged in between roads on all sides with trees and shrubs as buffers. Yet, surprisingly, it was extremely quiet inside. I found the front desk attendant to be very pleasant and went over and above to show us a map of the area. They did not have a guest laundry facility. Compared to many other choices in Monterey under $200/night, I felt this was the best value for us. However, I was disappointed that the windows were filthy, both in the atrium and looking out of our room. And, there were the ants which needs to be addressed.

"Face life please!"

This seems to be a great location, 5 min walk to the beach, 40 min walk to the pier on a dedicated walking trail, but the building is not being maintained. When we drove up the outside looked like it had not been painted in decades. The lobby was not much better. The room was good in layout but the smell was old and musty, needs paint, old mushy bed, and bathroom was in need of much love. The staff was not very helpful. The internet was not accessible with any of our devices. There were ANTS in the bathroom. Time for some reinvestment in the property account it is getting close to being below LQ franchise standards. On the bright side the breakfast was standard eggs and carbs and was ok.
