We got the 2 bedroom 1 bath unit with a balcony. Room and bathroom is clean, General area is clean and presentable. Breakfast area is under construction but still very clean. Free breakfast is good. You have a selection of bread, bagel, 7 choices of cereal, waffle maker and coffee juice and milk. The front desk is very helpful and friendly. its also has free WIFI and works pretty good . My only complain is the carpet, It needs deep cleaning.
This is not a four star but we have stayed at Hilton and Hyatt but personally im happier here because of they offer 2 bedrooms at a cheaper price and really close to the state beach which is awesome. Its also just a 5 minute drove to the Cannery row. No need for AC because its always cold in Carmel.
Hopefully we can visit Monterey in the future and will be staying here again.

We stayed here for a few nights in transit to LA, and hit a problem with the car, meaning we had to reschedule in a hurry. The aforesaid lady behind the desk, could not have been more helpful in her knowledge and assistance. Well done, Pam!
We found the location fine, with a nice stretch of sandy beach within walking distance, and a very good fish restaurant at the end of the road (see separate review)
The rooms were clean and tidy, and breakfast was as advertised.

We stayed here for several days for our annual visit to Monterey. We'd definitely come back.
We were in one of the king suites (1 king and another room with 2 twins). Everything was clean. The property is a little old - but in decent condition given it's age. It's right across the street from Asilomar. Breakfast was adequate - although I'd like to see at least 1 more protein option - peanut butter would do. Next time I'd try to get one of the suites that has a full kitchen. Room included a microwave, plates, refrigerator and a sink.

We stayed for 2 nights and loved being 2 blocks from the ocean. Our suite had a king room and a twin room, perfect for a small family. There is a small fridge, coffee maker and microwave as well as place settings for 4. There are many delicious restaurants in Pacific Grove and Monterey is right next door with wonderful attractions. As far as this hotel goes - the beds were clean and comfortable, the breakfast buffet sufficient and it was nice to park in a garage.

Room Tip: Make sure you specify the exact layout you would like, the king-twins fill quickly.
