We made our reservations on Expedia, and arrived (from Southern California) at approx. 6pm. The Front Desk Agent was very pleasant and found our reservation with no problem. He asked how our trip was and letting us know about some popular sites to see while in the area. This Hotel is conveniently located near Pacific Coastal Highway--and just far enough... More

We did not know that this hotel is not a kid friendly hotel. How can you prevent a 1 year old and a 3 year old in making noises? The receptionist knows how, and he suggested to put the kids in separate rooms. Maybe he wants us to put one child in the bathroom... I definitely don't recommend this hotel... More

This was our second stay at the hotel on this vacation as we travelled south and then back north along the Pacific Coastal Highway. Our first stay received an excellent review. We were unable to have the same suite on our second stay and had the unfortunate experience of not only having the room next to the elevator but also... More

We stayed here for two nights. When we checked in the woman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Our room was pretty nice...comfy bed and good bedding. However, cleanliness was somewhat lacking...the carpet had numerous stains and the bathroom floor was so sticky that we put towels down on the floor to avoid walking on it. Another... More

I cannot praise the staff here enough for their friendliness and willingness to assist.

Spent a few days in this hotel with my family while visiting the Monterey area. Nothing special, Standard Holiday Inn. No options for regular meals, except for breakfast, which is quite simple. Nothing special but a broken elevator!!! I do not recommend.
