If you would like to take a step back in time, this is your place. Old rattan furniture and an uncomfortable queen mattress. The bathroom had not been cleaned well as there was hair in the corner and hair in the bathtub. Make sure you do not get a view room at the end of the row, such as room... More

We took our children here and feel in love with the place. The ocean is right out back, there is a restaurant on the 4th floor, heated pool and spa downstairs, plenty of things to explore. This is a really great place for a weekend getaway or for a place to take the kids for the weekend. Close to downtown... More

The location and overall experience was great, but the price was just too high. We were traveling with our dog so our options were a bit limited and we wanted to be right on the water so this hotel hit the mark on both of those requirements. The breakfast at the restaurant was great and they allowed our dog to... More

We stayed at this hotel as a stopover for a night during our long drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco via Pacific Coast Highway Route 1. The rooms were not new but clean. One could hear the sound of the ocean if you took the ocean facing rooms. The beach views were to die for although we did not... More

Room was "beachy" as it was "older". View was incredible! Beach is very littered with sea plant life so not the greatest to walk. Close to area attractions. Did not visit the pool or hot tub so can not comment on cleanliness.

Room was on the older side, but very clean and HUGE. Service was very friendly and efficient. Location was great. Plus, a solid, free breakfast. Like the title says, it's was a 5-star experience for a 3-star hotel.

We stayed here for 1 night on route to San Francisco. Rooms a little tired but clean, bed & bedding very comfortable. Disappointed at having to pay for parking we stayed in another BW plus & parking was free, which I feel it should be for paying guests. Breakfast in hotel was lovely waiter unfriendly (maybe having a bad day)... More

Pricy, but very nice. Wonderful uncrowded beach right out your door. Friendly and helpful staff. A well appointed upscale resort, one can walk on the beach for miles. Spotted whales and dolphins an sea lions right off shore. I thought $18 per day for parking was a bit much, but it is paid parking everywhere in Monteray. Nice restaurant on... More
