“Great Pool”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

My family wanted to stay in a hotel with an indoor pool. Monterey doesn't have many hotels with an indoor pool feature. Their pool was fabulous! It was very warm, and my girls loved it! The room was decent, felt a little cramped. The pool made our stay worthwhile though. We will definitely stay again if we are traveling with the kids.

We made a reservation for a King deluxe, checked in and went to look at our room. It was quite large and furniture was positioned funny and the room also had a wall bed. Very functional, but not right for us. We asked if there were other rooms available for the night. The front office staff was very accommodating and found us several rooms to look at. We opted for a double queen which had a lovely feel, was in the back of the property, and had a fireplace. Remodeled bathroom and comfy beds, flat screen tv and had real glasses, usually places in this price category give you paper cups. The indoor pool was very clean and was heated. Didn't have issues with too much chlorine! Jacuzzi was hot. I'm not much for continental breakfasts as I need protein in the mornings and don't eat sugar. For the price of the room on a Sunday Night, we'd stay again. .

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are much quieter. If you don't like you're room, ask to see another as th...

Nice remodeled bathrooms, coffemakers in the room, decent free breakfast, clean and comfy beds, and an indoor saltwater hot tub. What a deal for a stay in Monterey! Loved the location for our work in pebble beach too. Less than a mile to hwy 1 entrance.

Not sure why this place gets lousy reviews. Here was our experience and we stayed here twice in a week in two different rooms due to some last minute changes we made to our vacation schedule and opted to come back here because we really liked it !

1) Staff was friendly and available
2) Room was clean and a decent size for a motel room, bed was comfortable, nice flat tv screen, wifi worked well
3) Continental breakfast was usual with muffins, sweet rolls, waffles, biscuits and gravy, cereals, milk, orange jiuce, some fruit. You could eat inside or out. Every morning it was packed.
4) Pool was warm. spa was hot. Towels for the pool provided at the front desk
5) Walking distance from Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row

We'd stay again !

Stayed here as a cheaper alternative to the expensive hotels in fisherman's wharf as I had stayed in clarion hotels before with no problem. This is nothing like any clarion hotel I ever stayed at before - this is nothing more than a road side motel.
Positive
It is cheap and a great base for exploring Carmel and monterey.
Negative
Avoid breakfast (disgusting), tv not working in room, very slow internet, no security, kids came out of pool after 10 minutes due to their eyes stinging with very high chlorine content, no laundry etc etc
Very poor avoid!

Booked the one suite on the premises & decided to switch to a regular room with a whirlpool. When we pulled down the sheets on the bed, we found blood on a pillow, not happy. The bathroom was fine and updated, with the bed just OK. The indoor pool was adequate with a nice hot tub. The breakfast was a little light with no eggs, meat, or yogurt, although had regular plates & flatware. The place was adequate but should have been better amenities with this brand name.

Room Tip: The suite is not worth it.

Upon checking in from a long drive from Las Vegas, room wasn't what is "advertised" on computer!!! So beware! Rooms are NOT what u see! The first night girl accommodated us for a different room w/a kitchen... But this one was in horrible condition for what we pre-paid! I was so upset but so exhausted we decided to just deal w/ it in the morning. The morning staff was down right incompetent!!
Couldnt help us.. So I demanded the manager right then as their motto is "customers come first" but guess what?? He's NOT on site!!
WHAT? I had to demand his staff to literally page him! Unacceptable
Didn't see him or hear back that day or the next, despite my request. Finally after continually "voicing" how upset I was at this point did I finally speak to him. Word of caution-- he acted like it was our fault!!! It wasn't until I mentioned that I had actual pictures of the room did his tone change!! Unbelievable!! People--location is great-- but choose another hotel!!! Room condition didn't change, & the next day, light above the counter fell down from the ceiling!!! What the ???? Again, had to demand to page manager, as he is RARELY ever there! Horrible service, poor quality of room, way way over priced & super noisy!!!! Breakfast is a joke!!
Choose elsewhere for anyone reading this far!!! Seriously! It was so bad I even called their 800# & that was just as bad! They DO NOT care about you as a customer!!!! All they care about is ripping you off!!!! Never ever will I stay there!!!!!!
