I enjoyed my stay there, nice pool and jacuzzi with warm water open up to 10 o'clock at night, and the nice fire place by the pool which gives to the ability to really relax and enjoy your time at night right in the hotel after a long day! Hotel is not busy and crowded. 15 minutes walk to downtown,... More

I have stayed here before and always enjoy the stay. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel is in a quiet location. The hotel is very well designed and handy to the airport. I will be planning to stay here again when in the Monterey area.

Nice pool and hot tub, about a mile walk from the wharf, but only a 1/2 mile from the nearest free trolley! (My only critism would be the front desk said it was an 8 minute walk walk to the wharf, it's more like a 15-20 min in flip flops). We found the trolley stop near the whole foods. It... More

The service here was excellent. We needed a big knife to cut a watermelon for the kids and the kitchen staff helped us out beautifully. Another nice feature is the outdoor fireplace by the pool - good ambiance.

Very nice people, the man at the desk obviously wanted our business because he offered us a great rate. Good location, the hotel is dated but clean and has pretty grounds. Pool area looked very nice but we didn't use it.

Stayed here whilst passing from San Francisco to Pismo. Location is superb both from a driving perspective and being able to walk to Fisherman's Wharf (15-20 min). plenty of parking (residents park underneath). Nice lobby (?) with free cookies which the kids and adults enjoyed. Checking-in was smooth. Room was more than adequate with good size bathroom. Bedroom was superb... More

Overall the room was adequate. We just stayed over on the way to San Francisco. The air conditioner buzzed all night like an alarm. The housekeeping staff started at the crack of dawn and were extremely noisy. Wouldn't stay here again but it did provide a place to sleep in a pinch.
