We were very happy with our 2 night stay at The Morgan. The staff at the front desk were extremely friendly; the room was large, clean and inviting (with a fireplace too); breakfast was good though not exceptional; and the location was superb! Not only is this hotel close to the Hearst Castle, it is also quite close (a few easy-to-drive miles) to the elephant seal rookery! We were able to visit the rookery 3 times (morning was definitely the BEST time for photographic lighting and fewer people). The staff has done a beautiful job selecting paint colors and room furnishings; it is also very clean. Our room faced the main road, so you could hear the traffic ~ though it was not objectionable. After leaving a nightmare stay at another hotel in Monterey, we thought we died and went to heaven when we checked into The Morgan.
One suggestion I would make to the hotel is to begin the continental breakfast service at 7 am (rather than 7:30). The first movie at the Hearst Castle begins at 8:15 am. It is essential that visitors wishing to see the movie arrive at their visitor's center by 8:00am. We had to eat on the run so that we could see the movie at 8:15 and then begin our 3 previously paid-for tours.
I would happily stay at The Morgan again!
