Stayed here for one night whilst travelling from San Francisco to LA in early June. Staff were welcoming and friendly and there was a happy hour with free wine and snacks from 5pm which was a nice touch. Lovely clean spacious room (though had to lug our cases up a set of steps to get to it). All the rooms are linked by a wooden walkway which could potentially be noisy if the hotel was full, but luckily it was fairly quiet so we weren't disturbed by other guests going to and fro. There was a pretty little courtyard at the rear of the property where you could sit and relax but we didn't get the chance to use it. It's a pleasant walk along to the pier - I sampled my first ever clam chowder there - very tasty. There is also a little trolley bus available but it only runs until about 9pm. Would definitely recommend staying here and would return if ever passing through Monterey again.
