As others have stated - there was a strong musty smell in the room. Kept the window open and the a/c on throughout the night but it does not go away because when we left the room in the morning, the outside air was much fresher and cleaner. The breakfast had china plates, which was a nice plus but otherwise... More

Just be careful, never use"name your own price" choosing hotel in monterey area if you needs two beds.It says room assigned when checkin, they would accept your price looks like good deal, however, they always only assign you with one bed, when you request for two beds or rollaway bed, there is extra charge.

Bathroom appeared to be newly remodeled with marble in tub area. Good breakfast in morning of waffles, biscuits and gravey.. It is in... More

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

Recently came here for a quick stop on a road trip. Not only was front desk super friendly, the room was also extremely clean. This was the best priced hotel along munras with a comfortable stay! Would stay here again!

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
