I stayed at this hotel on March 11 for several nights and I like it the first three nights I was there. The bed was very nicely made and comfortable. The room was cleaned and organized. I had a cottage room right behind the front desk office. it has a small patio with one chair but nothing special. The inn... More

My family wanted to stay in a hotel with an indoor pool. Monterey doesn't have many hotels with an indoor pool feature. Their pool was fabulous! It was very warm, and my girls loved it! The room was decent, felt a little cramped. The pool made our stay worthwhile though. We will definitely stay again if we are traveling with... More

We made a reservation for a King deluxe, checked in and went to look at our room. It was quite large and furniture was positioned funny and the room also had a wall bed. Very functional, but not right for us. We asked if there were other rooms available for the night. The front office staff was very accommodating and... More

Nice remodeled bathrooms, coffemakers in the room, decent free breakfast, clean and comfy beds, and an indoor saltwater hot tub. What a deal for a stay in Monterey! Loved the location for our work in pebble beach too. Less than a mile to hwy 1 entrance.

Not sure why this place gets lousy reviews. Here was our experience and we stayed here twice in a week in two different rooms due to some last minute changes we made to our vacation schedule and opted to come back here because we really liked it ! 1) Staff was friendly and available 2) Room was clean and a...

Stayed here as a cheaper alternative to the expensive hotels in fisherman's wharf as I had stayed in clarion hotels before with no problem. This is nothing like any clarion hotel I ever stayed at before - this is nothing more than a road side motel. Positive It is cheap and a great base for exploring Carmel and monterey. Negative...

Booked the one suite on the premises & decided to switch to a regular room with a whirlpool. When we pulled down the sheets on the bed, we found blood on a pillow, not happy. The bathroom was fine and updated, with the bed just OK. The indoor pool was adequate with a nice hot tub. The breakfast was a... More

The first night girl accommodated us for a different room w/a kitchen... But this one was in horrible condition for what we pre-paid! I was so upset but so exhausted we decided to just deal... More

Staff was fine although not happy to see us. The room was small, dirty, cold and odorous!! The pillows aren't a standard size pillow. We slept on a full size bed although I advised them in advance that someone in the booking party was 6'6" tall. We were too tired to deal with the quality of the room and elected... More

The Clarion Hotel in Monterey was very nice. The second bed was in a separate room with a balcony & view of the bay. How nice to be able to look out at the ocean! Breakfast was adequate: the real china & flatware were a plus. Pool was warm & clean with towels available at the desk. The hotel was... More
