We decided last minute to get away for the weekend to the coast. Came across this hotel and loved it. The customer service was excellent. The room was clean and large. We even left something behind and they were kind enough to mail it. We will definitely visit again!

We are frequent visitors to the Marina/Monterey area and, after an unpleasant stay at our regular motel we decided to look elsewhere. I am so glad we did - this location is wonderful and very inexpensive. The rooms are basic, comfortable, and very clean and the location is very quiet. There are plenty of places to eat, get grocery items,... More

I was at the HoJo Marina over the long MLK weekend. From the complimentary waters and chocolate chip cookies and clean rooms on check in, it was clear the place went above and beyond in making sure your stay was a great one. Breakfast was excellent, small eating area but my kids wanted to stay in bed anyway so I... More

The room was clean and the rate was reasonable. It was noisy. Lots of traffic noise and we could hear normal conversations through the wall from the next room. The continental breakfast was good.

23annee Thank you for taking the time to write a review. As you have noted our rooms are large and well kept. Excellent breakfast. I am sorry that you felt that your room was noisy but if you had talked to the front desk we do have rooms at the back of the property that are very isolated. Thank you... More

I stayed at this hotel twice during my trip down Pacific Coast Highway 1. This was by far the best value along my entire route. The place was clean. The room was spacious. And the continental breakfast was great. The hotel had a local feel and had great service. I was extremely pleased with the room. I had left my... More

We stayed 3 nights and had a comfortable and clean room and bathroom. The breakfast was amazing but the sitting space was a little on the small size. Would stay here again. The hotel overall was in good condition. The manager/owner takes great pride in her work in making a great experience for everyone.

Our stay was for only one night, the check in was simple with bottled water provided upon arrival. Rooms were clean and tidy. Good coffee & breakfast in the morning with food for us to take on the run.
