I really liked this hotel. It was clean, the staff were friendly, and it was centrally located so you could walk anywhere and it wouldn't take you long. It was cheaper than many of the other options in Monterey but I didn't feel like I was slumming it by staying there. I would probably stay there again.

My family and I have stayed here many times. Clean and close to everything. You can park your car at the hotel and walk. Parking can be at a premium in Monterey and that is why this hotel is ideal. Walking distance to Cannery Row! Continental breakfast is the norm; but like another reviewer said something to grab and get... More

Quick stopover in monterey on way to Santa Barbara, clean, good size family room. Friendly staff. Really close to everything. Basic breakfast, but free and fine to get you on your way. Definitely recommend for a reasonably priced stay in Monterey.

This hotel was just a one night stay after driving from Yosemite, before starting our drive to Santa Barbara. It is very close to the marina and Cannery Row (though we didn't go there). We had a family room which was very spacious and clean and we all slept well. Breakfast was included but it wasn't great, all a bit... More

It was very easy to find the hotel after having completed the 17 Mile Drive from Carmel. This HIE has under 50 rooms and an interesting architectural layout. It was in excellent condition and the lovely shade of grey made for a very pretty backdrop to the colourful flowerbeds we passed on the way to our room (108). There was... More

Stayed here for one night whilst travelling from San Francisco to LA in early June. Staff were welcoming and friendly and there was a happy hour with free wine and snacks from 5pm which was a nice touch. Lovely clean spacious room (though had to lug our cases up a set of steps to get to it). All the rooms... More

Nice hotel just a short walk away from Cannery Row at half the price. They also had free wine tastings several night while we were there. You could also walk over to the marina. Really didn't need to use the car much.

Very clean, great location, great staff! The front desk was very helpful and gladly answered any questions we had. My kids happened to leave some postcards they wanted to send, but we forgot them in the room when we left. We were pleasantly surprised when our family members received their postcards in the mail! So a big THANK YOU to... More

This hotel was in a great location. It was within walking distance to Canary Row. Nice size rooms and nice staff. My only "con", is that you have to use the stairs to get to the different floors. My mother is elderly and the stairs were difficult for her. So if you have an older person with you, or heavy... More

This hotel has a great location; although it is not ocean-front, we had a partial ocean view from our third floor room. But to get to our room was a bit of a pain. We took the elevator to the third floor, but then had to go up and down two sets of six (I believe) steps since the third... More
