Marina is about a 10 min drive (north) from downtown Monterey and with that a bit cheaper (and fewer taxed and no parking charges). But if you want to go out in Monterey with some alcohol, this might be too far. Very nice greeting at reception (Luke? i think), cookies later, beds and pillows and lines perfectly fine (important to us). Breakfast space nice, food OK (no fruit, which I thought was quite normal) in sight, but someone was kind enough to heat up some oatmeal. They have double queen rooms, are room was spacious enough which a decent sized fridge (no micro). Jacuzzi inside nice and big (we did not have time to use). I see another reviewer mentions a noisy fridge - for us it seemed to be the power outlet behind the heavy cabinet, clicking all night long which was difficult to sleep to. In the am we heard a snorer - the walls just are too thin at hotels to not hear people.
