Excellent service and very friendly outgoing staff. Fantasic area in downtop to walk to eat, excercise or just browse around. Highly recommend this one! Front desk was very helpful in moving me to a quiet area in the hotel after realizing there were 4 little hellions in the room next over to me. Views of the peninsula are gorgeous!

We felt nickeled and dimed to death. One even has to pay for phone hookup. Evening dining is limited to a shabby sports bar. The staff recommends dining down the street at a noisy bistro. Otherwise, service is good and rooms are well appointed.

We spent the last 5 nights of our fly/drive trip from LAX to SFO. The staff is good. The rooms are well worn and we probably stayed 2 nights longer than we needed to. We were able to see everything that we wanted to in Carmel, the Wharf in Monterey, Cannery Row, 17 mile drive, the Monarch Butterfly, Pacific Grove,... More

The hotel lobby needs a renovation. The room was ok (king room with bay view). We asked for self parking but it seemed is was not nearby ... so you have to use the valet service and of course you will be charged for that.

We were passing through Monterey/Carmel area going south from San Francisco. The rooms were nice, clean, and spacious. We also ordered room service for dinner and breakfast. Staff was very friendly and food was delicious! Also, seemed like the hotel was in a great location near the aquarium and other sites! Unfortunately, we were only there for one night and... More

King room was spacious and updated. Extremely comfortable bed. Large bathroom, separate sink area, great feature. Huge shower with a fantastic shower head. The hole in the glass is to turn the water on without getting wet! The staff was super nice and helpful with suggestions. There was no in room safe which I like to have. My room, odd... More

Stayed here for four days for a conference. Hotel room was very nice, and had good amenities. TV was small and a little possessed as it would change channels and turn off by itself.. Overall not a big deal though. Staff was very friendly and polite and handled all issued very promptly. Room service was very fast and food, although... More

Justin assisted us upon checkin with an upgrade to a jr. suite. We had free time so he gave great suggestions on where to eat lunch (ended up in Carmel) and where to hike (Point Lobos State Reserve). Our room was very clean & quiet with a very comfortable bed and nice bathroom. The hotel has an extensive breakfast buffet.

My husband and I spent 4 nights here while I attended a conference and he did some cycling. The room was neat, clean and relatively large with a small foyer that allowed space for the bike without us tripping over it. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The location is perfect! Connected to the Conference Center,... More

i stayed at this location during a recent business trip, which I regularly stay at Marriott's and have reached Platinum Elite status with Marriott. I received a very odd room (974) that was very different from what I am accustomed too with the sink basin as part of the room and very cramped with length, yet no width. The bed... More
