Recently took my daughter on a small excursion to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium traveling along the 1 from Huntington Beach. We wanted to stay closer to the aquarium however there was a large car auction in town the same weekend so lodging was scarce and rates were at a premium. The Clarion was a clean place a little off... More

I used Priceline's "name your own price" to get our room because room prices everywhere were significantly higher than normal this weekend due, at least in part, to it being move-in weekend at Cal. State Monterey Bay. Although I got a pretty good price for this weekend, I was still concerned about our stay because I had read a number... More

After spending a couple of nights in Santa Cruz before, this motel was very reasonably priced in comparison. The rooms were well equipped and clean with good A/C. The breakfast was good although a few healthier options could have been added as not everyone wants to eat mountains of waffles and muffins! The check in service was very good. All... More

Our room was immaculately clean, in great condition and included a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The indoor swimming pool and spa were really nice. The staff were really friendly throughout our stay and after we left they went above and beyond the call of duty:- we left some souvenirs in the fridge and they contacted room service who very...

Got a surprisingly good price, but the lack of quality of the room explained why. breakfast was pretty good, but plan on sharing tables with others, Quite crowded. Pool's not bad. Took a bike and a kayak and recommend that if you have either of them take them along too. Best bike path ever, and most scenic kayaking I've ever... More

We checked into this hotel on July 4. On check in we asked for a room with 2 beds, and were told it would be $25. The front desk person was surprised when the computer said it would be $45 because he has never seen the price for 2 beds be more than $25. We agreed to pay it. The... More

We were booked to stay here for one night, but enjoyed it so much we stayed for another. The location was perfect, just a short walk into Monterey town, but with brilliant access to Highway 1. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff very helpful and polite and the pool and spa were much better than expected. The pool... More

We had to stay in the Monterey area whilst our apartment in Carmel was being refurbished. As a Choice Privileges member I tried a number of Choice linked hotels, so as to increase my membership points and status. We moved to this hotel from the much superior Comfort Inn. The first room we were given smelt of cleaning fluid and... More
