I stayed in this hotel a few years ago with a bunch of friends for a wedding and remembered how great the price was for the location. I booked the room online and paid in advance. It's just across the street from a state beach with dunes and a great spot for just about any beach activity including surfing. Its a small out-of the-way street so the noise level isn't bad...especially on the West side.
When we arrived we asked if we could have a room with a fridge and they did so without any extra charge.
The room was standard but very clean and neat. Free Wi-fi and cable. There were extra plugs on the lamp bases for phone chargers etc., a nice heat lamp in the bathroom, blow-dryer, an iron and plenty of hangers. They had name-brand shampoo and lotion as well as a small coffee maker with all the fixins..even though they have fresh hot coffee in the lobby available all day.
The staff was super nice and very helpful.
They bake fresh cookies for the guests every afternoon and the manager of the office gave me some of her personal stash of flavored coffee creamer a few times. They also let us use the hot tub after hours with no problem.
We had reservations for a romantic dinner at a place in Carmel but Earnie at the front desk recommended the Chart House by the wharf in Monterey. They put us on the VIP list which included an awesome view of the bay and custom menus printed up with our names and " Happy Anniversary" on them...plus, we got their specialty desert for free! They also sent us across the street for happy hour...Awesome appetizers for $2.00, beer and drinks for $3.00.
They got us an awesome deal on tickets to the infamous Monterey Aquarium...2 days for the price of one.
Overall I couldn't have asked for a better stay! Highly recommend this place especially on a budget!
