Room was ok needed to do some painting and clean the vents. The continental breakfast sucks and it was very disorganized overall ok visit might stay there again. It's very close to the del monte plaza which has a lot of great eating places but that's all it's good for

A last minute trip to beautiful Monterey left us with few choices at reasonable prices. Finally found a room at the Clarion and gladly paid for a summer Saturday night stay. Staff were friendly and helpful and outside appearance was "good". Once in our room we found it clean but outdated. An odd mix of furniture included a sofa that... More

Basic Accommodations...at Best If you are looking for a basic Motel room with very little extra.. Then this is the place for you. If my wife and I were staying in Monterey for any longer than a day or 2 at most; then it would be elsewhere. -Modest accommodations -A less than fantastic "hot breakfast" -Nothing Spectacular Do yourself a...

We received a svit whit one kingsize and one queensize. We also had a kitchen. Clean room but expensive. We went down to Fishermans warf in the evening. Very simple breakfast included and free wifi and parking.

Our room is very nice, clean & comfortable but you can hear every movement the next rooms, make. The toilets flushing, resonate through the building. They do have a good breakfast & indoor pool. Not too far from Fishermen's Wharf. Bed is great!!!

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! 😁
