Fantastic location right on the beach. I got a pretty good rate when I booked because they were remodeling, but I had to pay up front, non-refundable. When we arrived I saw no sign of remodeling anymore, but the 'ocean front' room we were assigned sure didn't look remodeled. It wasn't bad, but tired and in need of updating. No... More

We booked this for five nights as part of our three week West Coast trip. Firstly I wasn't happy to pay extra for the parking - we travelled from Monterey to Santa Monica and stayed in a Best Western there with free parking! The room was small but just about ok but the bathroom was ridiculously small and you could... More

The location is what makes this hotel. The building itself is nice ... the lobby and restaurant have a brilliant view. The rooms are a little small and worn (Sounds like they are updating the place). *** Warning *** I walked into the restaurant at 1:45 and was told quite harshly that "we are closing" ... the hostess then realized...

Stayed here two night. In our first night we were assigned room number 327. Apparently, this room is located right under the kitchen. Sure enough, at 5:30 am, as the kitchen opened, the party started. Dragging, banging, clinking and clanking sounds right on top of our heads. I was ready to kill someone. Apparently this is a known issue. Sure,... More

This hotel has THE best location in Monterey, directly on the beach. It is upgrading it's rooms but we stayed in one that had not been remodeled but it should be soon. We have been staying here for 9 years and it is getting a bit pricey but we love it here.

Location on beach is nice. If you want updated, clean, quiet rooms (there are a lot of dogs) this is not the place for you. Price should be more of $89 per night. Rooms in desperate need of gutting and renovation. Built in 1968 and looks like furniture has been around for that long too!

checking in and out was a simple process, and staff was accommodating. Rooms with view was awesome, lounge was comfortable, bed was nice and view terrific. It's a pet friendly, family oriented hotel. I would recommend this hotel to others. It even has life guards on duty in the summer months on the weekends. If you are interested in sea... More

We will make this the place to stay everytime we stay the night in Monterey. Perfect from start to finish. We had a smooth transition checking in and out. Perfect time at the beach and the pool was never to busy.

Our trip to Monterey was to view the college there and I wanted to surprise the budding Marine Environmentalist with staying ON the beach. This hotel did not disappoint.
