Nice hotel. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. The service was good. We asked for additionnal blankets and they brought them to our room. A minimal continental breakfast is included (which is okay). We did not try the pools. Well located. Nothing bad to say. We were very happy with this hotel. Will be back.

I was so impressed with the cleanliness of the room...immaculate! Each day when the room was made up it looked as though the sheets had been ironed. Upon entering the room the first time, the front desk phoned to ask if we were satisfied with the room! Never had a hotel do that before! Nice touch! If we needed anything,... More

I had initially made some mistakes with my reservation, I even had to call Choice Hotels to clear it up but they were not able to help. Mala at the front desk was able to help me and able to find two rooms last minute, even when they show to be sold out. She was very kind, courteous and professional.... More

On arrival, Richard on reception was helpful and courteous. Room decor OK. Bed very comfortable - choice of hard or soft pillows. Air-conditioning window type and very noisy OK to cool down the room though! Toilet was blocked but Richard sorted that very quickly.

We stayed at the motel during a recent trip to Monterey to see the aquarium. Mala at check-in was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room was well provisioned with microwave, refrigerator, etc. Just what the traveler needs. The bed was comfortable.
