Room had everything we needed. Breakfast was busy, basic but ok. Pool looked nice but we were only in Monterey for 1 night. If you go into Monterey try to visit The Fish Hopper restaurant - amazing view and fabulous food even for non fish eaters. Need a jumper as it gets cold in the evening

My family of 3 stayed here for 2 nights while in Monterey. I expected the partial wall divider to be a little more of a divider than it was (only about 2.5' so not really much) but the room was clean, the water pressure was good and the grounds were very lovely. The breakfast was pretty ho hummmm but they... More

We decided very last minute to do a quick 1 night trip to Monterey. We went to the Monterey Underwater Film Festival (great -- do it next year: www.montereyshootout.com/film-festival/), fished off the pier and visited the aquarium, of course. All that was fun. And so, we only needed a basic place to sleep for the night. Basic is the key... More

It's hard to get enthused for this review. About all I can say is, hotels in Monterey are pricey, and this one was one of the less pricey options available on short notice. So, I wasn't expecting anything too fancy, and that's pretty much what I got. The rooms seemed at least clean, but everything is very worn and dated.... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in July while exploring Monterey and Big Sur. The hotel staff were friendly and the room was spacious and clean. We had a room right next to the pool so we could just slide open our door and jump right in. The pool water was chilly but the hot tub was just right! Breakfast... More

Good location. Like the self made waffle for breakfast. Hotel manager is helpful and friendly. Booked hotel at last min, so very reasonable px. But room is simple, and no AC. Non-smoking room, but has a slight smoking smell. However, good value for the px paid

I am a woman 65 years old and I found this hotel to feel very welcoming with many touches of home. There is a room divider between the two beds in my room giving me and my partner a little more privacy. There was a bathroom with a heater in it. There was a refrigerator and a microwave, and a...
