Where do I start? After a 6-hour drive my wife and I met the rude front desk staff. The view from room was a wall. There is no privacy sheer curtain. The view from the small bathroom window just made me want to keep it locked. There were beer bottles and trash strewn all about behind the hotel.
This hotel has recently been renovated or should I say covered up. The floor is lumpy and uneven. The caret is dirty and there are gaps and sharp edges where the carpet meets the bathroom and closet area. Wallpaper is laid over bubbled wallpaper and chipped paint is painted over throughout. The tile in the shower is laid on top of the previous tile.
There is exposed plumbing in the bathroom and the toilet runs. The furniture does not fit in the room and is well chipped because of this. The mattress is lumpy and every move caused the springs to twang. The blanket had many stains on it so we didn’t use it.
Something in bed bit me during the night. There is no light in the closet area or a closet door. When we came back to our room after lunch our keys didn’t work anymore. We had to get new keys made so we could get back in our room.
Avoid this dump. Monterey is still beautiful.
