“Comfort doesn't need to be expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

For the past few years this has been the location I chose which is in between home and work. But recently the staff and management changes made have really hit home and left me feeling like I wanted to share my experience. This place is convenient, guest friendly and comfortable. I'm away from home on business as much as I'm not so it's important to be at ease where I can relax. Much thanks to everyone involved

Room Tip: Walk to the beach

This is a good location for a quick getaway for peace and quiet. My room was at the top floor with great views. King size bed with clean sheets. Very quiet and peaceful Great staff very friendly and helpful. Nice relaxing spa and Nice breakfast room. Great location, walking distance to the beach and a great restaurant with full bar.....

Room Tip: choose a top floor room for the nice view.

We stayed here one day before Christmas eve, and the location is amazing. There's no better deal walking distance to the ocean. The rooms were clean, the service was excellent and the spa was amazing.

This is a great location close to the beach. The staff is wonderful and very accommodating. My room on the top floor is very clean and very quiet. The view from my room is an open area with trees to the South and the Ocean to the West. There is a nice bar and restaurant across the street in a time share resort. I usually stay at Holiday Inn Express but switched over here when I discovered that the rooms were as nice with a much better price.....and a better location closer to the beach.

Room Tip: I prefer top floor for cleanliness, quiet and absence of bugs that usually occur on ground floor roo...

We had a very nice room - Queen bed - lower level. The breakfast provided was winter season, so the offerings were not as fresh, but plentiful. The hotel staff, both evening and morning shifts, were very polite, and informative. We had a very quiet stay.

Room Tip: Didn't use the pool, the spa was hot (out doors). Didn't use the fitness center or computer...

I stayed here almost 2 weeks and defiantly had a good time. The rooms are not brand new but still in good shape. Right of the beach...gorgeous view...staff there is very friendly. Across the street from the restaurants.

We always stay here when we visit the Monterey Peninsula. Sure, we could spend a lot more money in town, but why do that? We'd rather stay close to the beach, have easy parking, free breakfast and a huge hot tub/pool that is safe and quiet in the center of the hotel. If you like quiet, low cost and easy access, this is for you. This place is perfect for families or couples who don't want the hassle and cost of staying in town.
