Last minute road trip and booked online. Drove 6 hours, went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, then checked in. Older, clean, maintained, as per reviews. Had 2 children and the wife, room was clean and roomy enough. Was expecting a microwave and frig but mine did not come with it. Not too bad if you only stay one night but more than that it would come in very handy.
I requested easy access to room and parking and got it, hence the room without microwave or frig. We did have time for a swim before dinner, and found the pool to be clean and refreshing. Hot tub/jacuzzi worked well, was clean, and jets were nice and strong. There was a Sauna and was not able to try it out such a shame. I love Saunas! They have towels near the pool area to use,(nice touch).
Electronic key card doors were not a problem for us, but someone had the same problem as a reviewer had. Maybe a certain door has problems? TV in room was old type with remote, room came with a log to burn(_ _ _ _ flame) worked surprisingly well(my first experience with it) for instant romance/fascination for kids. Bathroom was very adequate and functional with coffee maker and hairdryer.
I would stay there again, but would like a pool view, frig. and microwave. Included continental breakfast was more than basic, but not extensive. I was counting on WiFi as advertised but I had none, so borrowed a network cable from the front desk.
Pros: Close to Aquarium and Cannery row, but far enough to feel relaxed, Internet, Sauna, ample free parking.
Cons: Basic amenities, microwave/Frig. seems hit or miss was never given the option. WiFi don't know if it existed.
