I stayed here while in town for the Big Sur Marathon. The owners were very friendly and have us a map upon arrival with local destinations. This hotel is about a 15/20 minute walk to the Fisherman Wharf area through residential neighborhoods. The expo and bus pick up for race was also in a hotel about 15 minute walk away. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. They do provide a continental breakfast in the lobby each morning. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends who visit Monterey and don't want to spend an arm and a leg.
