So I recently spent 4th of July weekend with my wife there, its a bit on the pricey side. But i was sold on the pics of the rooms. Don't get me wrong they are nice, and remodeled but the front window that they show in the pic shares a walk way for guests. so if you want to enjoy... More

Great location, well kept rooms and awesome overall vibe of the place made this one of the the better trips we've taken to the Monterey area. Beach access were just steps away. Relaxing view of the ocean waves from the lobby gathering area and restaurant. Good people all around, guests and hotel staff alike.

Lobby with great view on the beach: wow!, very expensive Restaurant on top of the building with too few items on the menu, rooms on ground floor with direct access to the beach, rooms have only average size.

For my wife and I, this hotel's location made it perfect for us. We had a room on the ocean facing side, on the 3rd floor. We were lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the waves coming ashore. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean with a nice comfortable bed. The onsite... More

We used this hotel as a stop gap between San Francisco and Shaver Lake. The hotel is directly on the beach and is dog friendly, The rooms are good,clean and tidy and there is a small restaurant and bar, it is ideal for children and for adults the bonfires on the beach is a nice touch along with the gorgeous...

We stayed for one night to escape reality for a bit. It was the perfect spot. We had an ocean view room that was a descent size and clean. It had electronic shades and a block out screen. The only annoying part is other guests walking past the rooms can see into the rooms. The bed was comfortable and sleeping... More

We arrived and checked in to a gorgeous view and nicely done lobby area. This place is on the ocean so that was great. The restaurant is on the top floor and nicely appointed with good food. The room was small and not remodeled to a high level. It was clean and the beds were comfortable so we slept well... More

Spent 3 nights here. Was the perfect place to relax and chill. The kids 9 and 14 spent a lot of time playing in the waves. Bonfire on the beach was a highlight. We were there in late June and it was cooler than I expected, take some extra jumpers! Rooms were lovely, staff were excellent.

We loved our weeks stay at this hotel. It was wonderful overlooking the beach and hearing the waves each night. The décor was lovely and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The pool was warm and inviting. The beach was not too populated. The rooms were a tad small for a family of 4 and the floors had not been... More

As soon as I got there I noticed a board with names and doggy treats underneath. The names were welcoming the pets that were staying there which I thought was so cute. I didn't travel with my dogs but definitely appreciated the face that it was so pet friendly,even larger dogs were there, and they even have a room service... More
