This is the hotel my wife and I always visit when visiting Monterey. They have the option to have 2 separate rooms with 2 queens. This make for an enjoyable night sleep. They have a really nice pool and offer a free breakfast as well. This is not a 5 star hotel, but m I feel safe here, the rooms... More

I was not expecting for an amazing hotel but at least better! The exterior and the lobby were nice so I thought it will be the same for the room... Like it happens often, the room was not at all like the pictures of the website. Even if it is a non smoking hotel, it was smelling tobacco in the... More

I highly recommend searching for a nicer place to stay, especially if you want to stay healthy! This place is in desperate need of an overhaul and the price is not what I would expect given the price. The pool and spa are nothing short of a science experiment. One of my kids contracted folliculitis and is being treated by... More

We stayed one night. First thought it looked nice with the large room, the heated pool etc. Asked for pooltowels but there never had. Litters was left in the bathroom when we checked in. Poolarea was dirty. The "spa" was a messy backyard. It said fresh fruit with the breakfast but there weren't any.. just sweets and Milk. TERRIBLE breakfast... More

Was a neat motel. Super cute breakfast area and well stocked and attended to. Nice pool and hot tub. Room was a bit musty, an older motel but clean and great for the price. Free internet. Would stop here again!

Walked in to check in clerk is on cell phone. After getting to room, realize they gave us a double room. Called to let them know. She had to call back because she was too busy to talk to us. Then she said it was fine. About 9pm that night she knocked at our door to say we were in... More

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
