Loved the pool. It was big enought for a swim and just the right temperatur and we got a room just next to the pool with access from our terrace. Thecontinental breakfest came with waffels we made ourselves. Very, very sweet and helpful management who help us plan sightseeing in Montetey and Pebble Beach. We were treated as family.

Booked this place because it had decent reviews. Arrived late, but called ahead to give notice. Got placed in room #105. Cons: bed was springy, woken up by "many elephants" upstairs AND by the maids yelling in Spanish, the bathroom window was stuck and would not open, the patio door would not open as well. Pros: easy and quick breakfast... More

There were a few likes and dislikes of this place but overall I would stay here again. I didn't like that it's right on a busy street as I have a two year old who likes to run out the door, the room we reserved was downstairs and the back door was easy for him to open and run straight... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and was very pleased, even if the hotel was a bit older. The location was great....close to banks, food and Cannery Row. Did not feel it was within walking distance to Cannery Row like I read about, but it WAS a quick drive. We only requested housekeeping service once but not all items were... More

We booked the room through booking.com for our anniversary. Check in was very easy and the manager couple was very lovely and helpful. When we informed them about our anniversary, they upgrade our room without any extra charge and brought bouquet and candy for us. Very nice and professional touch. Very nice location, clean room with comfy king bed. They... More

Only stayed in this hotel for one night, on a budget, passing through Monterey. Location wise, good. And cheap. The rooms, however, are dated, and didn't feel overly clean. The door to the balcony was locked using a homemade device which didn't feel secure. The walls were paper thin and resulted in a very poor sleep overall, mainly because of... More

The owners of this property are very nice. I wish they would make their place nicer. It needs a major overhaul. The property and the room was shabby and depressing. Dismal lighting, awful, pilled blankets, dried paint splattered in bathroom, as if Jackson Pollock had taken a side job, the wall heater didn't heat the room sufficiently at all, the... More

We chose this hotel for its amenities, location and price. Monterey, California has high room rates especially during the car races at Laguna Seca. We booked three nights, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Saturday they did not provide washcloths. Their excuse was the laundry service did not bring any. This is very poor management. Why didn't they check in the delivery... More
