We stayed here for 1 night for our trip to Monterey before hitting Big Sur. Instead of staying in the heart of Monterey because of the higher rates, this hotel offered everything we needed. The location is 20 minutes north of Monterey. It's in a quiet strip mall, with Walmart close by. The lobby was well lit and comfortable with... More

The location was just off the freeway, about a mile from the beach, and no more than a ten minute drive to the school. Check-in was quick & simple, and the front desk was more than happy... More

For $250 a night you would expect: 1. to have your room cleaned daily... 2. to have hot water in the shower... 3. to have a well-maintained jacuzzi room.. 4. to have access to a laundry service.. 5. to have a remote control that functioned properly (both in the room and the fitness room). This hotel met none of these... More

Nothing about this hotel is going to blow your socks off--it's small and quaint. That said, there's nothing wrong with it either. The rooms are clean and nice, parking is easy, the breakfast is par for the course. I don't know that I'd stay here for anything special, but we were just passing through and it was a perfectly acceptable... More

Bed was very comfortable. Staff was very helpful. Easy to get to and overall a good place to stay while venturing out to the coast and wine country. Next to walking and dog park. Breakfast included. Nothing fancy but ok for a start to the day.

We stayed here 2 nights. Nice large room with a view over the park. Staff was great, one of the best breakfasts for this type of hotel. They had pretty much everything you could think of. The hotel is clean and pleasant. We walked to the dunes from the hotel.
