Stayed here for a weekend with my wife and another couple. The room was very clean and nice which came with a refrigerator. The staff is very accommodating especially Julianna she made our trip fun and gave great recommendations. The hotel is a great location very close to downtown. plus free breakfast which is always a plus

Stayed here for 2 nights, it was fantastically located just off the Main Street of Monterey, a short walk to the fishermans wharf and a reasonable walk to the cannary area, the rooms where clean and very modern, staff were all very friendly and the location couldn't have been better, a very good hotel made better by the price

The room was very clean. Juliana was very nice and understanding with a situation I had, very welcoming when I had to check in early. The staff was pleasant over all! The location was lovely! 10 minute walk from Fisherman Wharf! and it was overall a pleasant experience. - Van N.

Near a gas station. Too loud! So expensive for the service they offered and the prices are not clear. The old receptionist has also treated us so badly. I won't come back! They enchant you with cabaret skits and then at the end you have to pay more!
