On our way from L.A. to San Francisco we stayed one night in this very nice and cozy hotel. The woman at the frontdesk was very nice. We booked a 2 room suite which was very big, also for 4 persons. Even a small continental breakfast (incl. belgian waffles) was included in the price.
After returning to Germany i received a call that i forgot my wallet in the room. The hotel was very helpful in organizing the shipment! I would everyone recommend to stay there if you are in Montery area.

This is a strange one. First of all the hotel is located in the middle of a residential area. You have to look for the sign to even realize that this is indeed a hotel. My guess is that the hotel itself was never designed to be a hotel. There are a number of stand-alone two-story units that suggest this was once a condo development. Each unit has been subdivided into one or two bedroom units. The inside of the units also indicate that all this was all part of something else at one time.

On the other hand, if you're looking for good accommodations at a reasonable price, it's not a bad place. The rooms were comfortable and well-equipped. For a family, the two-bedroom suites are a bargain compared to downtown Monterey. Breakfast is included and it was very good compared to many other places that advertise "continental breakfast". There was even some fruit and a waffle maker that everybody seemed to make use of.

We had another great stay at this hotel. The location is absolutely fabulous since it is so close to golf courses that we played.

this is a Quiet location; it was close to the selected golf courses that I was playing at; there is only one nearby restuarant within walking distance. It was a little pricey and you should like fish.

Exceptionally clean and spacious suites with welcoming hosts. This is not a typical hotel; the suites feel like home. I am a relatively frequent guest needing workspace for computer and other equipment and the king suite with a full kitchen and kitchen table provide exactly what I need. Great location for day trips up and down the coast. Generally a single guest on field trips for coastal and wetlands nature photography, I take advantage of the room's large kitchen with full-size refrigerator, microwave, oven, and stove to prepare "home cooked" meals. Maid service includes dish-washing ;-) Breakfasts provided by the hotel are standard with cereals, pastries, bagels, fruit, waffles, toast, juices, coffee, and milk which supplement in-room cooking or a quick morning get-away. Both covered/garage and stall parking are available. Free wi-fi, fireplace (nice when returning wet and cold), and each ground floor suite has very large, private, double outdoor decks (estimate 120 square feet of deck space with patio table and chairs). King Suite includes bathroom, kitchen, small living area with sofa (fold out bed), coffee table and widescreen TV and a large sleeping area with its own widescreen TV, fireplace, bed, and wet bar. Multiple chests of drawers have extra blankets. In room safe for valuables. Perfect if you need comfort, space and a great location for working or vacation stays on the peninsula and want to prepare some or all of your own meals.
