Very convenient location -- 3 blocks from the aquarium and Cannery Row restaurants and shops, 2 blocks from an extensive ocean-side bike/walking path through Pacific Grove, less than a mile from Fisherman's Wharf (which can be reached via a scenic paved path). Nearby kayak and bike rentals. Spacious room, nice furnishings (including two upholstered armchairs), small balcony with table and two chairs, fireplace, double vanity area with full toiletries, fluffy towels, in-room safe, small refrigerator. Interior courtyard with extensive planting around it. Generous free breakfast (three hot items, muffins, toast, cold cereal, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, whole fruit, yogurt, two juices), free afternoon wine and cheese. As others have mentioned, noise from upstairs neighbors can be annoying (it was, for us, for 2 of 4 nights), but if you are noise-sensitive, pay a little more for a top-floor room. Parlor where breakfast and /wine & cheese are served can get crowded if the hotel is full, but they provide trays to take food to the courtyard (where there are tables and chairs) or to your room. No air conditioning, but it gets above 75 degrees about two days a year on this stretch of coast, so I don't see any problem. If you don't want to pay for parking, park on the side street adjacent to the hotel (McClellan Ave.) -- it's free, usually plenty of spaces, and is unrestricted at night, though limited to 90 minutes from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.. So you can park free from to 4:30 p.m. to 10:30 a.m., and in 90 minute chunks midday. Yes, the hot tub was "closed for renovation," but I'm not a hotel hot-tub user. Unless you have noisy upstairs neighbors, this place is close to perfect. Unfortunately, I don't think you can retrofit soundproofing between floors.
