Good value for service, and although not ocean front, we did have a peek of ocean from our second-story room. I imagine the view is better from the third story rooms. We booked a "Deluxe" room, which was cozy with a fireplace and balcony. Not the highest-tier accomodation they offer ("Premier"), but maybe a bit nicer than "Standard," although all...

This hotel is perfect for a few nights in Monterey. It is close to several good resturants and bars for happy hour. The hotel staff are welcoming willing to answer all your questions on the area. The hotel has a small Happy Hour around 4-4:30. It's a great place to meet fellow travelers hear about their adventures in CA or...

I chose this hotel because of the location: 10-15 min walk to Cannery Row and Monterey Bay Aquarium. There are a few restaurants within a couple of blocks, a 24 hr CVS 3 blocks away, and a Goodwill less than 2 blks away (if you forgot to pack something and want to get something cheap). The hotel room is clean,...

Ok so whaaaaaaaaat??? I stayed in this hotel in 2000 and 2005 before my move to NorCal in 2007. My mistake was staying at other places in Monterey between then and now.

Such a nice place to stay. We always have a nice time here. Breakfast in the morning is always delicious. Wine tasting in the afternoon is great. The staff is always friendly. We have stayed here multiple times and have always had a good experience!

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times before. We like the location, it is between the aquarium and the wharf. Just a few blocks to the restaurants on Cannery Row. The walk to fisherman's wharf is less than a mile stroll on the trail. The rooms have a gas fireplace and either a patio or balcony. They...

We always stay in this place when we go to Monterey and we will return in the next times. Only last time we had two little problems we would like to point out (see pictures): - we reservet a room for four people, and the beds were very little to sleep in two each. Do not book one room for...

Every time we go to Monterey this is where we stay. We have stayed here for romantic getaways and trips with our young kids. Staff is wonderful and always friendly. Comfortable dating rooms with a great location. The family suite is absolutely perfect for traveling with all the kids. Even has a view of the bay. I highly recommend it!

The rooms are large and contain a working gas fireplace. The staff provided our party with a free crib.

The number one thing in this motel's favor is that you can walk from here to Cannery Row in 5-10 minutes. The breakfast they offer is pretty good and complete, not the "Continental Breakfast" that's referred to in the information binder. Wi-Fi is not secure, so that's a drawback. Room is clean. Television is in a very odd location so...
