We did a last minute booking for 4th July weekend. This hotel was good overall. The decor (flowers specifically) outside was great. Free breakfast was of okay quality with some fruits not in great shape. For us it was just a place to stay, and we didn't expect too much and this was just like so. We loved the trees... More

Stayed here en route to San Francisco while driving up the coast from Laguna beach. The hotel was located in a cluster of other inns, which were all fairly close to Fishermans wharf and the cannery area. The hotel was ok, borderline grimy but nothing too gross. Continental breakfast was included but the fresh fruit was about A week expired.... More

Last minute booking landed us here. Read the reviews and was preparing my self for the worst. It actually beat my expectations by a tad. As far as the eye could tell the room was clean. The lady checking us in had a bit of an attitude problem, but the rest of the staff was very friendly. Given that this... More

Inside room was OK- and I get the drought- but have you West Coasters heard of a Leaf Blower?? Many Hotels we have frequented here have a LOT a flora debris, and dead bugs, around. Really is nasty and detracts from the overall appeal. This Hotel is in the crowded strip of motels just a 1-minute drive to the Wharf,... More

Crowded strip of motels just a 1-minute drive to the wharf and this was "tucked in". Old style (lots of steps, outside entry) but nice room and good features for an excellent price Our room was spacious with a fireplace, but on the second floor (no elevator) so a challenge to get suitcases up.

Room was ok needed to do some painting and clean the vents. The continental breakfast sucks and it was very disorganized overall ok visit might stay there again. It's very close to the del monte plaza which has a lot of great eating places but that's all it's good for

A last minute trip to beautiful Monterey left us with few choices at reasonable prices. Finally found a room at the Clarion and gladly paid for a summer Saturday night stay. Staff were friendly and helpful and outside appearance was "good". Once in our room we found it clean but outdated. An odd mix of furniture included a sofa that... More

Basic Accommodations...at Best If you are looking for a basic Motel room with very little extra.. Then this is the place for you. If my wife and I were staying in Monterey for any longer than a day or 2 at most; then it would be elsewhere. -Modest accommodations -A less than fantastic "hot breakfast" -Nothing Spectacular Do yourself a...

We received a svit whit one kingsize and one queensize. We also had a kitchen. Clean room but expensive. We went down to Fishermans warf in the evening. Very simple breakfast included and free wifi and parking.

Our room is very nice, clean & comfortable but you can hear every movement the next rooms, make. The toilets flushing, resonate through the building. They do have a good breakfast & indoor pool. Not too far from Fishermen's Wharf. Bed is great!!!
