We were down for the Sea Otter Classic bike race and were delighted with our accommodations. We felt as if we were at home and were able to enjoy the time away and be prepared to win. The staff was helpful and made us feel welcomed.

As a Marriott Rewards member who stays 75 nights or more each year at Marriott property, I can say that this is not my favorite Residence Inn, but they did get the job done for the three night I was here. Check-in was fast and efficient, but no Marriott Rewards upgrade was available. The room was clean and comfortable, but...

Very friendly staff. The rooms appeared to be very clean and welcoming. I had asked for extra pillow and blanket when arriving and the staff was accommodating. It was nice to be able to relax and not be bothered by outside noises. I ordered in for dinner and was pleased that the front desk attendant was helpful and present during...

We arrived after a four hour trip from San Francisco due to traffic. Ready to lay down and take a nap the young girl working the front desk was great. She was quick and efficient in getting us checked in and making us feel at home. The room is what you would expect from a Residence Inn, spacious with all...

We stayed here after we went to the Monterey aquarium. This is just your average residence inn, but the staff here is incredible the most helpful and accommodating I have ever seen. The room was clean but slightly dated. The breakfast was nice with really good choices.

I stayed here several times for business. Housekeeping changes the shower liner the night before I leave and cleans the room really well. I think that the following guest gets the same shower liner. The sheets and pillow cases are not fresh and look like they have been slept on. Dirty, stained comforters. The roll away beds are disgusting. Stained...

This review is based on the the response by the Marriott management after I initially filed a complaint in August. After going back and forth for about 3 weeks, someone got in touch with me and settled the issue. I was refunded for my night's stay after all the trouble we had with the reservation. I appreciate that. It's unfortunate...
