Budget Accommodations Close to the Sites

Convenient Location at an Affordable Price

The Econo Lodge Monterey perches on North Fremont Street, a main thoroughfare in the heart of Monterey, and offers travelers a great place at a budget price. The hotel is close to the Monterey County Fairgrounds, home to the famous Monterey Jazz and Blues Festival, as well as other local attractions. The Monterey Regional Airport is a short drive away. 

Best of the Bay

Visitors to this budget hotel can enjoy the best of the Monterey Peninsula at an affordable price. Take a spin along scenic 17-Mile Drive or play a round at Pebble Beach. Everyone, including John Steinbeck fans, will get a kick out of visiting the shops and restaurants along Cannery Row, which served as the inspiration for the author’s classic novel. Let the kids run amok at the Dennis the Menace Park or spend the afternoon at the world-class Monterey Bay Aquarium. A trip to Monterey wouldn’t be complete without a visit downtown to Old Fisherman’s Wharf. 

Comfort on the Cheap

This hotel provides a full range of basic amenities that travelers have come to expect from Econo Lodge. Unlike the nearby Motel 6, each guest room comes equipped with a refrigerator, and two-bed rooms have a coffeemaker and microwave. Econo Lodge offers free continental breakfast each morning to all guests, and rooms with kitchens are available upon request so you can save money on eating out. A seasonal outdoor pool and spa is also on site for enjoying that California sunshine. Like the Monterey Bay Travelodge, complimentary Wi-Fi is available in all guest rooms.
