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.

Rooms are no frills. Prices were lower end which is a plus. But, sometimes you get what you pay for. Beds OK. Carpets are heavily soiled, upholstered chair heavily soiled and worn, walls need some fresh paint, tile in tub and floor area recently upgraded--could see that the hinges on the door were rusty indicating it had water damage probably...

Its in a convienent location to the pier and shops. Its more like a motel with rooms facing outdoor walkways. Lady at the front desk was nice and helpful but recommended the most expensive place for dinner $28 a plate (we had 2 kids and 6 people) so we opted for elsewhere. Hotel is value for the money but if... More

We stayed here with our son during our holiday coastal getaway after Christmas. We've had overnight stays in a few of the inns/hotels in the nearby area and were pleasantly surprised by the spacious room, level of comfort and cleanliness at this hotel. We had our own separate room with a queen bed and our son had a queen bed... More

Took a two-day trip away from our Bay Area vacation to drive down to Monterey. This hotel was clean and comfortable for my wife and me. The receptionists were friendly and helpful giving directions to the Wharf, etc. The continental breakfast was well-stocked, though the dining room was a bit too small to accommodate all of the families that were...

We had a few nights here on the way down driving from San Francisco. The Hotel was well located and close to the Fisherman's Warf. We stayed on the bottom floor and found the hotel well equipped for the price, and very comfortable. We would stay here again

Have stayed at a number of the budget motels along Munras Ave while on motorcycle trips over the years, and this was one of the nicer ones. I stayed here November 20, which was a Thursday, so not a whole bunch of folks were staying here. Older but seems to be in good repair. Walking distance to old downtown, Del... More

How this very old run down motel can be called a Clarion is beyond me. Front desk claimed to have 2 year old pillow-top mattresses which turned out to be 7 year old low grade mattresses in all their rooms. The breakfast was the first one I've ever seen where ONLY the apples were edible. Broken items that were never... More
