“Do Not Stay Inn Here!”
Reviewed January 19, 2004

My husband booked this Inn for our 1 Year Wedding Anniversary. From the outside and the inside the Inn looked very nice, but not worth the price. The Inn is located on Cannery Row which is a great location.
Room 312 had a great bed, view, fireplace, but the bathtub was smaller than our own tub at home. The breakfast wasn't very good and the maid service was horrible. We were interrupted 4 times to take our plates, change our sheets and god knows what else when we had a do not disturb sign in our slot. Our anniversary day we were greated with the check in clerk and the bell boy cursing eachother out in the front entrance.
When it was time to leave we took our own belongings down stairs and waited for Valet. They loaded our car with our luggage and we were off.
They missed a bag and actually had the nerve to ask for a CC# to send our bag. After spending 600 dollars for 2 nights I would have thought they could pay a 20 dollar shipping fee for our bag that they missed.
The management wouldn't budge on the 20 dollars. Wouldn't stay here if I had a gift certificate!

Room was well appointed. Bed was very comfortable. However, had to use earplugs to sleep as the nightclub across the street pulsated until 2am every night (stayed 3 nights). Could not connect to internet unless using the lobby fax line. A very noisy place. I stayed on the topmost floor on the street side. $15 per day for parking - valet.

Stayed there for our 25th anniversary early October and we were treated unbelievably well as soon as we walked in the door. Our room was upgraded, champagne was waiting for us and the ambience of the fireplace and semi-canopied bed couldn't have been better. The location was ideal for us and we loved the quaintness of it over the newer, high-rise hotels further down from Cannery Row. We had an upper corner room so could see both the ocean and Cannery Row and experienced no problems with noise at night. We'll be back!

I stayed in a corner room as an anniversary surprise. The view cannot be beat and we slept to the sound of the sea with the full moon shining thru the window. It is a very romantic spot and the corner rooms are spacious. Breakfast delivery is nice and the location is wonderful.
There are some definite problems, which I think they get away with because of the location. The service was rather ambivalent - no one offered to help with bags or opened car doors, which I would expect at a property such as this - considering the price and amenities. The bathroom could use some paint touch up and the fixtures are tarnished.
The window seat cushions were soiled and had cigarette burns. When they update the rooms, I will be back for the fabulous view of Monterey Bay.
