Stayed here weekend 9/16-18/2011 for the Monterey Jazz festival. Great Govt rate of $126, clean hotel, good service, got an early check in, even though hotel was booked. 3 floors, elevators, nice lobby area with fireplace and TV. Outdoor patio area with gazebo, indoor heated pool and jacuzzi. Ample FREE parking even with the Residence Inn, literally next door. Nice location with plenty of shopping and banks, from Walmart to a Mall on the east side of freeway. Hotel is located right off 101 Fwy. You can get a refrig upon request with no charge. Nice variety for breakfast and reasonably priced, not complimentary....GOOD free coffee & variety of teas in lobby area, which is available 24 hours. Has a small little area for purchasing snacks, drinks and other sundries.
We stayed in Room 213, which had 2 queens and balcony. Not all rooms have balconies, probably depends on room type. Beds slept wonderful, nice size bathroom with tub/shower combo. Shower head location could accommodate someone 6ft or so, but could've had the calcium removed for the full experience. Bathroom door opens directly into the small vanity area with sink, blow dryer, hair products (no shower caps tho) and sliding glass door closet, which can be a little cramped, but not a big deal. Iron & board, single use coffee pot, coffee/teas, ice bucket, glasses, desk w/lamp & chair, 1 chaise chair & ottoman, 32" flat screen TV (reception could've been better), thermostat Air Cond/heating unit, digital alarm clock and most of your basic needs.
About a 20 minute drive into Monterey. Great alternative for the Monterey area, which can be VERY pricey.
