This hotel is exactly what you expect from the chain. The breakfast was one of the best free breakfasts I have ever encountered. It is just down the street from the beach. They do have a hot tub even though it is not mentioned on their website. The housekeeping left a lot to be desired. They did not empty the... More

More reasonable than the hotels in Monterey. Definitely needs updating and having a microwave in the room would have been nice. Close proximity to beach via dunes which is nice. Breakfast was adequate but room was hot and crowded. There is a tiny playground and jacuzzi.

I liked this hotel a lot. It's not my favorite that I've stayed at, but I really liked it. I thought the staff was wonderful, when we checked in, we came in with a small SUV and a utility trailer, and the let us park the trailer in the lot in a spot next to our car. They explained where... More

A clean and quiet place to stay, friendly staff. Easy access to Highway 1, making it a short drive to all attractions. Close to beach, about a five minute walk. Go early to breakfast to beat the crowd, because the eating area fills up quickly.

Staff was great, appearance of lobby nice, and the complimentary breakfast is good. We did not hear anything during the night which was wonderful. The rooms are clean but need updating. As does the outside of the hotel. The cost is too high for the look of the rooms.

Average hotel. Needs updating. But, its clean. Staff is friendly. Felt safe. Very close to beach. You can walk there. Its maybe 500 feet or so? Fridge never got cold. Other than that. Its was fine for what we paid. It was priced right.

Nice hotel near the beaches and short drive to Monterey. Good breakfast with lots of choices....but a bit crowded. The hotel is clean and the rooms are large. Nice little play yard for children. Free parking is a nice option as many Monterey hotels charge for parking.

I got a great online deal and we liked our stay. The beds were very comfortable, the breakfast well stocked (but it's a crowded room), and the staff friendly. Across the street is a restaurant that has a cheap happy hour for dinner and the beach is an easy walk (get out fo your car!)

Had reserved two rooms for four nights and had requested the quiet side of the hotel, not the freeway side. We arrived around 11 p.m. Lobby was locked and I was made to stand outside in cold ocean fog while the inept night clerk tried for twenty minutes to check us in. When we finally got to our room, on... More
