“It's Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We (my husband, toddler and I) first stayed here last year. We picked this hotel because we were watching our budget and wanted a hotel that would offer free breakfast as well as free parking. When we arrived, we were surprised to see a little koi pond in the lobby. My young son absolutely loved this feature! The room was clean, including the remote control (which was sanitized for our use) and fairly comfortable, especially for a hotel in this price point. The breakfast was adequate (standard continental breakfast), but we knew not to expect a fancy buffet so this was fine. This hotel is a short drive to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, and an even shorter drive to downtown Monterey/the wharf. We were very pleased with our initial stay last year, so when we returned to Monterey earlier this year, we chose to stay here yet again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room closer to the elevator because the staircase is not easily accessible.

We were delighted with our stay here. Indeed, so delighted that this review will be very short and sweet! Great room, fantastic bed and pillows, very clean, free and excellent internet, free and spacious parking, and spot-on customer service from the staff.

This s a perfect option for Monterey.

Thank you for your complimentary review of our property and five out five rating. Your short but concise comments were spot on. As you stated, rates will increase during special events or peak months, however, we still provide a great value given what other properties in the area charge.
We appreciate your taking the time to post your "Great option" review.

Stayed here 2 nights and it was easy to get to both Monterey and Carmel from here albeit would require a car. The room was very big and whilst we were on the second floor at the front you could not hear any noise from the road at all. Reception staff were really friendly and helpful and advised us of where to go and where to park the car in town etc. Breakfast was fairly basic which is the only reason I have scored the hotel very good as opposed to excellent, however it provided a basic breakfast which was sufficient and it was plentiful too. Had free internet access in reception which was a bonus and we would definately stay there again. Good value for money.

This was a perfect hotel for what we wanted while in Monterey. Spent 2 nights here and room was clean and staff were helpful. We stayed at 5 different hotels in the USA and this hotel had the best shampoo and conditioner. We were pleased that there was a safe in our room, as some other hotels didn't provide this. Hotel was handy to a couple of restaurants and pharmacy over the road. Our kids made the most of the swimming pool which is heated. There is lots of parking which is free (some around the front and back of the hotel).

Don't let the N Fremont Street location dissuade you, this is a GEM in the middle of otherwise lackluster accommodations on the street. This owner has the property fresh and up-to-date. Our unit was well-appointed, spacious, clean and quiet. All the staff we encountered were friendly, helpful and professional. An example of the over-the-top service we experienced was when our hired car failed to appear; the manager personally drove us to the Carmel Valley location arriving minutes before the wedding was to begin. Looking forward to our next visit.

I picked this hotel because of location to Laguna Seca Raceway where our cycling event was being held, Sea Otter Classic Granfondo. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. Our king room was spacious, had windows that opened, was a corner unit so bright, was clean, decorated well, had a working desk and office chair and proved to be very comfortable. Bed was good, good nights sleep, wifi fast and good. Staff very friendly and efficient check-in and out. Bathroom good, big vanity. Only negatives were no air conditioning and breakfast small selection. Their was a ceiling fan that worked well in main room and front desk brought another fan to our room. Problem solved. Nights in Monterey cool-off good so maybe that's not an issue. Breakfast area in lobby not big enough for more than 8 guests but we didn't mind taking food to our room, in fact we liked it. Other restaurants near hotel, walking distance, Denny's and Monterey Cookhouse, which was an excellent place. We ate there 3 evenings and had great food. Driving distance to beaches short and fast, even to Carmel by the sea. Cycling event to Laguna Seca minutes away. Photos of activities on our website: cyclingwest.com

We visit this area a lot for family, this is definitely a hotel we will return to. The rooms are spacious and clean. We couldn't hear any noises from surrounding rooms. They had a nightlight in the restroom, which is a plus when you travel with a toddler. The front desk clerk was very polite and courteous.
