“A wonderful Option for the Monterey Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The De Anza has quickly become one of our favorite places to stay will visiting the Monterey CA area. The rooms are large and well appointed, and always clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. The free breakfast they provide is adequate but not fancy. The hotel is located a little away from busy cannery row, aquarium and fisherman's wharf, but the pricing makes it well worth the extra 10 minutes it takes to get to these popular attractions. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the area.

Room Tip: Rooms on the the 3rd floor have the best views

This is the first review I've ever written about a hotel but the De Anza Inn deserves it. The hotel is a great value and the staff are very courteous and helpful. The room was clean and a good size. It was just a short drive to everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Monterey - it was a great experience!

Great hotel location with very courteous staff. The rooms were spacious and clean. My wife and I left my daughter's baby food in the hotel room's freezer in a rush to make it to the aquarium. While at breakfast the gentlemen at the front desk called to inform us and even held it in the break room freezer. Will stay again next time we are in Monterey.

Good hotel - excellent service by staff, comfortable beds, quiet for sleeping, lovely ambiance. Breakfast a little sparce. Very close to roads leading to all directions in the area. We had a great stay, and I definitely would return to this hotel when here again. Over all I highly recommend this hotel.

This was a great place to stay. The staff were very helpful and the room was very clean and comfortable. We only stopped for the night while traveling, but were pleased with our stay. I had accidentally booked the night ahead of time for the wrong night (the night previous), and after a long drive to get there we were so appreciative of the staff that arranged for us to stay in the "emergency room" (a very nice room I might add), so we did not have to go hunting for a place to stay. They also took care of this situation at no extra charge for us! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through or to Monterey.

Stayed for one night on our way down the coast. Beds were comfortable and room was very clean. Breakfast area very small (not enough tables) but they were planning to make it bigger in the near future so we were told.

This is truly not a complaint. The hotel was clean and the the hotel employees were very present and helpful. The truth was that it is a hotel built in the 70's and it a 70's hotel. The price is high but that is the pricing in the area is high. We had a reservation for a king bed but it appeared to be a queen at best. (it was a good bed though, very confortable. On the positive side you have great access 2 of the most beautiful cities on the California coast. (Monterrey and Carmel.). The advertised free breakfast was a bit over exaggerated. It was free but not much there. We went next door to Dennys and got our fill. One excellent thing was the pool and hot tub. Sparkling clean and it appeared redone in resent years. Don't be put off bye this review just don't over expect.

Thank you for your review of our property. Please allow me to respond to your comments. Here are the facts, the property was built in 1979 and yes our pool/spa area was renovated last year. Although this is the peak summer season, our rates are a good value based on what we provide the guest. The puffiness of the comforter causes an optical illusion and makes the bed appear smaller, however, you we sleeping on a comfortable King bed. Our complimentary breakfast includes two hot items (eggs and sausage links), cold cereals, juices, oatmeal, bagels, muffins, assorted breads and more. I believe some readers will be put off by your review due to the lackluster rating given, however, I value your honest opinion.
