I stayed here two nights in March and went for an ocean view room. The location is perfect; right on the edge of Cannery Row, but a bit away from the din. The rooms all have private balconies, and mine gave a view of the bay and the beach adjoining the hotel. Having breakfast delivered to the room is very... More

We were lucky enough to book one of the ocean-front rooms at this small hotel. We had a beautiful view! The breakfast in the morning could be better. We had fruit that wasn't quite ripe and with no flavor, boiled eggs that were about room temperature, which was weird, and yogurt. The best part of the breakfast were the muffins.... More

This is a brilliant hotel in a great location, just a short work from all the restaurants on Cannery row. Our room looked towards Fisherman's wharf and out over Monterey bay. It was a good size, clean and well equipped. Truly one of the nicest hotels we've stayed at along the central coast.

Only stayed for one night on a trek up the Pacific Coast, wish it had been more. Just a great experience starting with the friendly knowledgeable staff and cookies at check in. The water front room was well appointed with all the right touches to make it special... Binoculars, Aveda products, magnifying make up mirror, music CDs and player, live... More

Location, location,location, this hotel literally is ON the bay, at the very end of Cannery Row. Use your binoculars to see the sea otters hanging out on the drifting seaweed, in the Spring the cormorants are nesting, sea birds flying by all the time, a multitude of sea lions to see at the pier. The first night we heard sea... More

The room was very clean and they offered binoculars to check out the view along with a nice Continental breakfast. The bed was very comfortable! It's located at the end... More
