These photos are trick photography at their best. Save your money. Dirty, smelly, dark, and dreary....way below mediocre. I cannot think of a single nice thing to say about this hotel other than perhaps the location. You could walk to several areas of interest, except eventually you had to return to the hotel, and that was depressing. Left after only... More

An small little hotel on Munras Ave that was well kept and the price was right. Room was clean and it was quick to get to Monterey proper. Cannery Row and all the attractions like the Aquarium were not that far away. Whole Fooods was just up the road. The only negative was the selection available at breakfast. This place... More

We arrived in our room to find the carpet stained, walls and doors splattered and dirty. Glasses had wine residue in them and the sheets were not untouched as a quarter was found under the pillow and specks in bed. Our concerns have been expressed to the front desk four times now and we are a week later still waiting... More

Got a 1 King Bed, Suite, No Smoking room over 4th of July weekend at this property and I was not really impressed. I've stayed at other Clarion locations in the past and they have all been much nicer hotels. The room was HUGE for our family of four and had all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay, but...

We were traveling up the Pacific Coast and made a stop in Monterey. Room was clean. Nothing fancy. It was very dated and small. It was decent because of the reasonable price. If you are looking for a 5 star luxury hotel you should not stay here. If you want to stay in close proximity to the attractions and such,... More

Check-in took forever, we get the key to the room, it is on the lower floor in the farthest, darkest corner. The room is occupied, luggage, unmade beds, food. Go back to front desk, wait forever. The girl tells us "are you sure its occupied?" I ask for another room, she says "I need to find out who is in... More

TA allows 3 or 4 - but I'd like to rate it in-between the two. Slightly above average but not quite "very" good! The location is excellent - walking distance down to the wharf, downtown and Cannery Row. Easy parking - we left our car there and just walked everywhere. It was pretty annoying they refuse to let you check... More

We stayed three nights. Having never had fleas before, we couldn't figure out why we were getting 'mosquito bites' only on our feet. The third night, we finally realized the carpet was alive with fleas. The front desk was unimpressed by the fact that we had fleas....I think they were used to it. They promised the manager would contact us,... More
