I would have given the hotel five stars but it could stand a bit of updating. The rooms were small but very comfortable and attention was given to make it a very pleasant stay. The breakfast was plentiful and good (continental). The location was prefect and quiet. I can't say enough about how fantastic the staff is.

Lovely room belies the start exterior...get there early to park as spaces are less than rooms and some people park wonky! Staff was really great. Breakfast was decent although the breakfast room is small and if it is drizzling outside you may have to take a to go sak back to your room. There is outdoor seating if it is nice; mornings are fairly iffy along the coast. Although we were upstairs away from street noise, the incredibly loud seagulls roosted on our ceiling daily. They reminded us we were on the ocean. Close to free trolley stops, walking distance to restaurants and Fisherman's pier. I'd recommend this place.

I am staying here now and suggest to whoever does the star rating it I is time to take another look. This hotel is far beyond what I feel is a 2 star hotel. I am staying in one of the remodeled kings and couldn’t be happier. Room is large and nicely decorated, bathroom is big and clean and the room even comes with a fireplace. What more could you ask? Because it has no gym or other amenities I would consider this 3.5 stars. The staff was quite helpful and friendly during check in. The location can’t be beat. Two blocks and you are downtown with shops and restaurants. Don’t let the 2 star rating put you off. They are obviously fixing this place up.

I stayed at the Merritt house inn for two nights. The first day I arrived the toilet backed up and almost overflowed. I informed the person in charge about the problem and supposedly they fixed it. The next day I used the toilet again and it overflowed everywhere causing a huge mess. The manager said it was my fault that the toilet overflowed. The first day when I used the toilet I only flushed liquid in it and it almost overflowed! There is also no mirror above the sink in the bathroom. There’s a little one on the counter. I’m sure most women would have a problem with that! I will never stay at this place again! Hopefully this honest review will save someone else the displeasure that I experienced.

Will stay here again, the front desk woman Celeste was very kind and helpful, and the room was perfect for a 2 day stay with my S.O. Location walking distance from food, Del Monte beach and the fisherman's wharf.
