This was the cheapest place we booked along our west coast trip from LA to SF - about $100/night/room. I was initially anxious to see what would be there for us on arrival after a bad experience in San Simeon ( which had also been rated highly on Trip Advisor) but was pleasantly surprised, and relieved, upon arrival. We had... More

The location is good, there are several restaurants and markets also gas stations around. The room is clean and fine for the family. The staff is helpful. I like the plants and the beautiful flowers outside. However, it is a little overpriced during July.

We enjoyed our stay here- it was clean and the beds were comfortable- we were on the ground floor and felt very safe in and around the parking lot even after dark- great location and had a great Wholefoods nearby for us to do a grocery shop for the next leg of our road trip- awesome deli in that Wholefoods...

Pleasantly surprised by this quaint hotel. Our room was very clean and comfy. Surprisingly we could see the ocean from our room. Location is close enough to walk downtown, to the wharf and even cannery row. Parking in Monterey can be challenging so walking is a nice option. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very reasonable rates which included wi-fi... More

It is located within a walking distance from the centre and to the mall. The room was quite large and attractive with a modern bathroom. It was clean and cosy. The staff went out of the way to help. It is great is you have a car.

Very clean and walking distance to amenities. A bit far from main Monterey area... About 30 minutes walk to aquarium and sights. The room was clean and staff friendly. Not many amenities nor anything special. But it's tastefully decorated and feels perfectly fine. Low maintenance rental with comfortable place to sleep and rest on the coastal drive from San Fran...

Great location within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf, Farmer's Market, and Cannery Row. Cannery Row was a bit of a hike, but we needed the walk after all the meals out! Excellent value for the area. We were happy that we chose to stay there over the Carmel area. We had a queen bed with a twin for our college... More

We loved the spacious room which was clean and the wifi fast and free. The Inn was close to the beach and fisherman's wharf and we loved the 17 mile drive in Pebble Beach. There were wonderful otters and seals galore!

We called up from the visitors centre and she said she would have a room ready for us to check in straight away which was before check in time. She also gave us great advice... More

In a good location it is easy to visit carmel and Monterrey. The bed was very big and confortable. The breackfast wasn't special, but ok. The staff was friendly and helped us with some maps and tips about the big sur and the beatiful 17mile drive.
