We're been coming here every Thanksgiving for the past 4 years. The place has been more run down every year but it's convenient and has a heated pool. Tonite it's 44 degrees at 8PM (that's cold for us in California) and there's no heat in the room. Maintenance came and said that it doesn't work and the manager offered us... More

This is a small, quiet older hotel with nice updated rooms. Good location, close to attractions and restaurants between Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea. We chose to stay in a small room with queen bed, although they do have larger rooms and suites available. Though an older facility, it was well maintained and freshly painted inside and out. The room had all... More

Room was spacious. Carpets were dirty and it´s a bit run down. The breakfast was simple, but only sweets for breakfast. The dining room was a bit small. Heater was loud - had to turn it off for the night.

This is my second time staying at the Clarion hotel. I thought it was great value for the money. Yes its older, with few areas of peeling paint indoors but the room was spacious, clean, free breakfast, indoor heated pool and hot tub plus air conditioning. The receptionist was neatly dressed and pleasant. The exterior building was pleasant to look... More

We ended up staying an unexpected 2nd night in Monterey on a friday night since our plans got messed up. So the price was very high, but it was still a good stay. The room was clean, and very roomy. There were two of us in a double room, so we had a lot of room. The pool was nice,... More

Comfortable bed, shower and plenty of towels. The swimming pool was pleasant and jacuzzi very hot!! Too hot really. Hairdryer is there and an iron. Everything you need. Small issue, there... More

We had a very pleasant, quiet one night stay here. There is a nice reasonbly sized indoor pool. Good sized room. Short walk from main town with plenty of restaurants to choose from. Not on a busy road.

We enjoyed our stay here, apart from our noisy neighbors but that was no fault of the hotel!! Indoor pool and jacuzzi was great. Breakfast not so good. Good location in walking distance of restaurants etc. We had a good price so we thought it was good value for money.

A nice motel but a bit away from the centre. Parking was ok and it was walkable to the centre of town. No pubs or bars nearby though. If going to Monterey I would recommend a whale watching trip. Also the clam chowder, although many sellers compete with their own version.
