Portola is in an excellent location on the wharf and is walking distance to cannery row. We had a lovely stay. Notably, there isn’t A/C in the rooms but you’ll get a cool breeze with the windows open. Enjoy the scenic route to Monterey from LA via HWY 1.

This hotel does have a lot of amenities but it will all cost you!!!! But it is nice and clean. But anything and everything you need here you can get for a price. But they do clean them very well and that is fantastic.
