It was nice and clean. We stopped for a night on our way back from camping. The room was small as was the bathroom. Breakfast was a nice bonus. Included hot food and was part of the stay. Not much in the town but relatively close to Monterey and we were headed to moss landing the next day for whale... More

We stayed here for one night on the way to Santa Barbara! Since we booked two rooms, they gave us a suite ( two rooms next to each other connected with a door). Breakfast was included in the room rate. Compare to other holiday inn express hotels that I've been to, this one was not very clean especially the bedding!... More

The ads say it is a hotel, but when you access the rooms from outside, it is a motel. They have built a building to house the front desk and breakfast room, but you have to go outside to get to your room. There is not a secure entry way. The rooms are small and not up to the standards... More

Checked in on a a Friday evening. While there was only 1 receptionist, there was only 1 other guest ahead and check-in was smooth. There was ample parking even when we returned after 10pm. The hotel is of the type with exterior hallways connecting the rooms. The window of our room was at the hallway so there wasn't much privacy... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting Monterey. It is very close to Monterey and it's attractions. The hotel was clean but the room was small and the bathroom extremely small. It has outdoor corridors and we found that to be quite noisy, especially late at night when many people from our hotel seemed to be walking over to... More

It was an alright hotel. It has a pool that is small but good. We had an opportunity to do our laundry after being on road trip for a couple days. Service was good which is always a plus. It is right on pacific coast highway so that was a plus to get on road next day.

We were traveling with a family of 13. We were expecting more but you get what you pay for. It is still going through renovations. The staff were friendly at check in. We stayed on the first floor, which was great for small children including toddlers and infants. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable but the pillow was yellow, which... More
