This is definitely the best place to stay in Monterey. This hotel is centrally located, has a lovely ambiance, comfortable rooms (one with an ocean view is well worth the cost), and an outstanding staff.

Room Tip: Definitely get a room with an ocean view.

Stay in an ocean view room to get the occasional glimpse of a sea otter, seal, or dolphin. The Hotel restaurant has an excellent breakfast. The Hotel staff is extremely friendly. Great central location for travelling around the area, including 17 Mile Drive, Big Sur and Carmel. The sole criticism--- the rooms are well appointed, but a bit tired. Good value for the money.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view room. Sleep with your door wall open to enjoy the surf crashing right under your room.

Great location, on the water. Not very kid friend because there is no pool or hot tub but a very romantic stay of us grownups. Love the firepit outside and location in Cannery Row. We called the day of and were offered very good pricing options. We made the mistake of not jumping at a ocean front room and by the time we traveled to the hotel, they had sold out of them and there was no upgrades... our fault, just don't make our mistake! Take the ocean view room.

If you plan to stay in Monterrey/Carmel area for an extended time (more than the one night we stayed) definitely stay at this hotel and be sure to get an ocean view. Sleeping to the sounds of the ocean are incredible and seeing otters playing right outside your window was amazing. Everyone was friendly from the moment you enter the hotel until you leave! Definitely recommend.
