Hotels in this area (Monterey, Santa Cruz, etc) are ridiculously expensive! I was relieved to find this one was reasonable and convenient. We checked in around 9pm on a Friday night and the place was almost full. I observed a number of baseball families etc. The pool is indoor and is really small, but my kids enjoyed swimming for an hour or so.
Soundproofing is minimal, so we heard lots of stomping around both from the floor above us and the hallways--nothing that the loud a/c fan couldn't drown out though!
Over all, didn't love it, didn't hate it. Very acceptable for a quick stopover on a long commute.
