We stayed here on Aug 21-23rd 2012 The hotel was very, very clean... The lobby was always freshly mopped and offered you fresh lemonade, coffee and baked cookies. It's near the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Canrey Row. We did however ride bikes to the aquarium as it is fair for those who don't walk everyday :)
Our room was EXELLENT it had a coffee and tea maker, a sm refrig, a honor bar and the prices were reasonable. The bathroom was huge with a his and her sinks made of marble the bathroom had its own door and was seperated which was nice. The bathroom was super clean not even a hair on the floor or in the tub, another plus! The towels were very large and nice not cheap at all. It didn't have a hair dryer though that was the only issue with the bathroom.
You get a free breakfast which can be delivered to your room at no extra charge you also get to choose what you like example fresh fruits coffee teas, hard boiled eggs muffins or breads oh and juice. Very nice for free. It also says you can leave your dishes right outside the door but we did this and wouldn't recommend because the Seagals come and make a huge mess!
The balcony was great excellent views except the birds do like to hang out there when you are away and leave poop for you so bring a squirt water bottle to help get if off things. No dust in the room, no sand nothing... The bed was great but the pillows were to soft.
This is by far the best hotel we have stayed at in a very long time I would go back in a heart beat and I would recommend it to everyone.
One thing we didn't like was $15.00 charge for parking we just waited for a spot on the road next to the hotel and were able to see our car from our balcony which was a plus. The parking garage is small and hard to get in and out of if you have a big car.
The hotel has an elevator and two spas one on the 2nd floor and one of the 4th floor. Very nice and very clean with crystal clear water, bring your own towels from the room though. Great views, great desk clerk very helpful.
Now the cost was a little bit pricey but it was well worth it and we will be back its money well spent. It was also our 25th Wedding Anniversary and we got a complentary bottle of wine, two flute glasses a card and chocolates. It was mainly quiet but you could hear banging or squeaks ever so often, and we were on the top floor.
This is one hotel that is IMMACULATE and it is a must stay. We give it 10 Stars!
Its so peaceful you can hear the waves crashing oh there is also a turn down service you can request and they turn your bed down for you and leave chocolates on your pillow. There is a small safe in the closet which is nice and the maids do an excellent job. Oh if you eat out on your balcony beware of Seagals they will litterally carry off your food.
The elevator is even clean no fingerprints what so ever,never seen that before. There is a little mexican place a few steps away great prices and great food try the salsa and chips and the enchiladas :) authentic... great coffee shops and icecream shops too just within walking distance of this hotel.
There is a little walking path right next to the hotel near the water which is nice and a small park near the hotel where you hold have a picnic but... there was a bum sleeping there over night and one on the path when we were there but... my husband spent some time talking with one and he was actually quite nice. Fishers mens warf was very close we rode bikes there and had a great day. We recommend Rappa's its the last place to eat @ the end of the warf great prices and their petite sizes are quite large. Very nice people working there.... Hope this review helps others in choosing great places to stay and to eat :)
