Stayed here for two nights. Although its an "exterior corridor" property + the hotel is rather small, the rooms are spacious enough. It did feel "upscale" in comparison to Motels - however, the amenities are virtually the same. The A/C + heating unit in my room was REALLY loud, i kept it off for most of the time anyway. The...

The place is more like a Motel, not a Hotel. It's an older property, could use a revamp, paint, carpet, etc. Pool and Hot Tub are nice and indoors. Nice selection for breakfast, close to many places to eat. Wifi went out and was out for most of my stay. Depending on it for my work, I was out of... More

This property is more like a motel as far as room layout, atmosphere, and location goes; HOWEVER it's much more than I expected when I walked into our room. Staff members are reserved and quiet, but friendly nonetheless. The front desk agent (I believe she might have also been the manager) was on the phone when we walked into the... More

Perfect for our family vacation. Awesome free breakfast, clean indoor heated pool, quiet room too. Great value if your vacationing for a short time visiting the Monterey and Santa Cruz area. I enjoyed the view from the balcony in my room. Will return on September 2015 but for a whole week this time! 😁

There is a lot to be said about a hotel that charges your credit card for damage to a chair for which you were not responsible. My family, which consists of myself, my husband, and our two daughters (ages 1 and 4) stayed at this hotel last week. There were two rooms. As my one year old was going to... More

Last minute drive down from the SF peninsula for work, and ended up here. One star for a relatively nice girl at the front desk. Clean, if you don't look hard, but my God these walls and floors are thin. Also, I'm wondering if I've stumbled upon a gang banger wannabee convention. With any luck I'll get out of here... More

Unfortunately this will be my first negative review of a hotel. When we arrived we checked in and there was ample parking. They gave us a second floor room and there is NO elevator so we had to haul our heavy suitcases up the stairs and the staff offered no assistance (I have neck and back injuries). The room was...

So we got a room for one night at this hotel via hotwire. The room was pretty clean, but the walls are definitely "thin" you can hear the cars driving by on the street. It was also very cluttered. Seems like they put way too many things in the room. The continental breakfast was abot what you would expect for... More

Stayed at the Clarion Monterey for a one day mid week visit. The hotel was close to Fisherman's wharf and Cannery row. Rooms were clean and not too small. Breakfast was standard continental offerings, plus fresh waffles and biscuits and gravy. The mid week price below $60 was a great deal for this area. Would stay again.
