I just returned from 2 nights. I must say they have the best photographer, because it is not what is listed. I had the horrible room in the 100's. It is so tiny, it is a closet! Super small. Didn't leave any coffee or water for the next night. The breakfast is ok. The pool and Jacuzzi are the best.... More

We stayed a couple of nights and we got impressed with the rooms and service for the price in that area. Loved that you can make your own waffles for breakfast and that was part of the free breakfast. Accross from a mall, easy access to freeway 1. I would definitely recommend this place

Stayed here for 2 nights in the beginning of November. I ended up getting this hotel when booking through Hotwire. The hotel itself is a short drive to downtown Monterey, but is not really direct near anything other than the mall across the street. Check-in was quick and the staff was relatively friendly. My room faced the main driveway on... More

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night, while on our way to San Fran from Los Angeles. We reached here about 10pm and were leaving in the morning around 9, so this was just a transit hotel at reasonable price. The reception staff was courteous and provided us ordering dinner menu (no dining facility at the hotel). The... More

I grew up in Monterey, so am very familiar with the area and the hotels there. I booked the Mariposa for a 5 night stay based on convenience, price, reviews, and the general look of the place through their photos online. I paid for the booking through Travelocity. After a long travel day, which started at 7 a.m. and ended... More

Best deal in Monterey for the price. Our room was clean and cozy with a fireplace, there is an outside hot tub and heated pool. My husband discovered on the 2nd floor by our room, there is a fire pit with couches and heaters. Great way to spend the evening relaxing. About 1.5 miles from 17 mile drive and only... More

If you don't mind staying a few miles from Fisherman's Wharf then this is a great hotel. I booked a room with a guernsey bed and got a AAA upgrade which included two floors, two queen beds, two full bathrooms and a fireplace. The hot tub felt great after our long bike ride. And the complementary breakfast was a nice... More

Booked this place via priceline and got a pretty good deal for it. When we arrived, the lady at the front was relatively nice. Easy check-in and explained to us everything we needed to know. Our room was literally right beside the main office but we rarely heard anything during our stay. We could hear people upstairs who at times... More

The staff was very nice and helpful. Nice lobby and the rooms are clean and well appointed. No AC but they do supply a fan which really helped. We stayed on the bottom floor with one queen size bed....the room was very small but for one night it is OK. Only down fall is the rooms aren't soundproof, you can... More

I just stayed one night here, but it was a great experience and Monterey is a lovely place. The front desk staff were very friendly, helpful and gave me a great last-minute deal. My room was nice and clean and the breakfast included in the stay was fantastic (waffles included)! There's also a pool but I didn't get a chance... More
