Let me say right off the bat that the staff was pleasant and efficient and that the room was clean upon arrival. Housekeeping did a great job during our stay. My biggest complaint is the condition of the hotel. When we drove up, the metal fence along the parking lot was so severely rusted that it had rusted completely away...

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...

Stayed here for just one quick night in June so my high school senior and I could tour Cal State Univ, Monterey Bay. 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...

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...

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...

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.
