I'd been telling my husband of this hotel for years, as we used to stay there when I was a little girl in the late '70s-early 80s. I have a lot of great memories of Monterey, and most of them centered around staying in this hotel, when it was still a Holiday Inn. We could see the whales breaching in the ocean from the hotel restaurant, it was amazing! So I took my husband back there for our 15th wedding anniversary in February, and while it had changed some (most notably the name), it was much as I'd remembered it as a little girl. We had the time of our lives and it was very romantic! We plan to take our two kids (12 & 14) back very soon. Granted, the interior of the rooms is not what one would consider "swanky", by any means. But considering the prices you're able to get online to stay at this hotel, I'd say it really doesn't matter. Just walk right out your door and see one of the most beautiful shorelines in the US, and I truly mean that. The sunsets are breathtaking, the beach very clean. Monterey is a beautiful place, and this hotel is a great place to stay and experience it's true charm. And to the other posters who commented negatively on the staff, I have to tell you that we had no problems whatsoever. They were all very friendly and helpful and even let us check in three hours early! It was a great stay, all the way around.
