Sweet motor lodge, very clean, convenient location & transportation. This was our second stay at The Lone Oak Lodge in a year. First time for 3 nights and this time for 6 nights. It's a true "motor lodge" with lots of wide parking spaces right by your room. Very friendly and professional staff. They are currently halfway through the process of remodeling the rooms which are modern and beautiful. We stayed in one of the older rooms which is perfectly pleasant and VERY clean. I could have chosen a remodeled room but I like the "mid century" look so I requested the same room we stay last time. Very comfy beds, pillows, sheets and towels. In room coffee maker with Starbucks coffee, microwave, and refrigerator. The FREE wifi was fast and worked seamlessly. The hotel is in a very convenient location, just a few steps to public transportation and several restaurants. A huge Safeway supermarket, a CVS, and even more restaurants are all within a quarter mile. Because parking around Monterey's tourist areas can be a bit of a hassle and expensive we left our car at the motel and took the "Jazz" bus. It's fast, inexpensive, runs every 10 minutes, modern, clean, ADA accessible, with helpful and friendly drivers. If you are a scuba diver this is your place! They have 3 large rinse tubs for your gear. Outdoor shower and changing rooms to get the sand off yourself. Strong hooks right by your room to hang your wetsuit to dry. There's an outdoors fire pit / sitting area where you and your buddies can trade dive stories while your fresh catch cooks on the provided BBQs.
