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

We checked into this hotel on July 4. On check in we asked for a room with 2 beds, and were told it would be $25. The front desk person was surprised when the computer said it would be $45 because he has never seen the price for 2 beds be more than $25. We agreed to pay it. The... More

We were booked to stay here for one night, but enjoyed it so much we stayed for another. The location was perfect, just a short walk into Monterey town, but with brilliant access to Highway 1. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff very helpful and polite and the pool and spa were much better than expected. The pool... More

We had to stay in the Monterey area whilst our apartment in Carmel was being refurbished. As a Choice Privileges member I tried a number of Choice linked hotels, so as to increase my membership points and status. We moved to this hotel from the much superior Comfort Inn. The first room we were given smelt of cleaning fluid and... More

We stayed here for the first time during our annual trip to Monterey. We stayed six nights and it was our best stay ever in Monterey, The manager and staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the excellent breakfast and the convenient location.

My fiance and I were in Monterey for a weekend trip and stayed in the honeymoon suite. The decor is a little dated with gold fixtures and early 90's pastels but the room was clean and quiet and the fireplace, jacuzzi tub and candles made up for it. We loved it! During the day you can hear noise from the... More

Stayed here for 1 night en-route down the PCH. Both rooms were spacious and clean. Front desk were helpful and accommodating. Request for quiet room was honoured and we all slept well, which is always a priority. Well placed for sightseeing. Breakfast was adequate. Monterey itself, a little 'fairgroundish' and disappointing. Not much old charm to be found.

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
