this hotel is off the main highway and therefore very noisy. it has outside corridors and this does not help. the hotel is clean and staff helpful. the front desk clerk was very helpful in finding a restaurant.

Dear Guest, I am glad to hear that the staff was helpful in particular finding a restaurant for you! We hope the next time you are in town you decide to stay with us again. The back of the hotel faces away from the highway and has pristine views of beautiful lake! Thank you for taking the time to review... More

I read all of the previous reviews and decided to give this hotel a shot. I requested a room in the back of the hotel facing the water, it was very quiet, we were not bothered by street noises at all. The service at check-in was friendly. The breakfast was one of the better continentals I have had. The room... More

I have stayed here at least ten times over the past five years. Decent hotel for the price and location near Monterey. Lobby staff always very friendly. Free morning breakfast is edible - no other restaurant on the property, but there is a Chili's, Starbuck's, and McDonald's within walking distance. Warning, you can hear traffic noise from the rooms.

For the price, this place should have been far better than what it is. The furniture is stained and ratty. The walls are dingy yellow, implying they were from the days of inside smoking. The countertops were sticky. There were not enough accessible outlets. The door didn't close all the way, leaving the room noisy and drafty. The place is... More

This hotel is vary old and the rooms were vary small. I have not seen venetian blinds on windows for many years, but they are on the windows. The staff was vary friendly at check in and was doing every thing to help us. We didn't eat at the hotel as we went down to the pier for dinner.
