Loved the hotel, had a Oceanview room which was fantastic. Great happy hour, great staff and very clean. Top notch hotel. Only complaints would be poor a/c in the room and poor water pressure, may have been because we were on the 12th floor.
We had a really pleasant stay at the HoJo's and couldn't ask for more. The room was really comfortable and the amenities were great - nice breakfast including a waffle maker! The place is a ten-minute drive from Monterey which is very convenient.
In an area of high prices, the place was very good. It was clean and quiet, close to restaurants and access to Moterey/Carmel. Black Bear Diner is very close and a great place for good food, reasonably priced.

The staff are friendly and helpful. The motel is inexpensive compared to other similar "motels" versus "hotels" in Seaside/Monterey/Sand City/Marina area. The motel is very conveniently located to restaurants, shops and nearby stores. The exterior building needs to be painted and cleaned up. Interior rooms have newly remodeled bathrooms and are clean. The motel is old and the rooms are small, not much that the owners can do about that. The walls are thin so it isn't the most quiet - try to get a room at the back where there is less traffic noise. Everything inside the room is decent for the price. The room comes with a mini fridge and a microwave, which is a nice thing to have. Television in the room is small. I would stay here again if money was tight, and I was just looking for a place to sleep before heading out for a day on the coast. It felt safe and met the need for a place to sleep for a night when traving through Monterey.
I would have appreciated knowing there was major construction going on with this hotel prior to arrival. The poor staff was working in a small hallway booking people at a table with a computer. The pool wasn't open and this was disappointing to people with children. The housekeeping staff was just OK. They may have been short handed.
Seaside and nearby Marina border California State University at Monterey Bay, located at the former Fort Ord. Surfers and tide pool explorers frequent Seaside State Beach and nearby Monterey State Beach. To the south, the compact Monterey Peninsula Airport offers no-hassle connections to larger hubs such as San Francisco and Los Angeles. Drive 10 minutes east for racing action at Laguna Seca.
