This property is conveniently located close to Monterey but is not as high priced as properties in Monterey. Major highways and a number of good restaurants are also nearby. Management seemed very responsive.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel just last week and I have to say it was a great experience overall. The front desk attendant Josh was awesome.

Stayed at this hotel on business. Very friendly, courteous and helpful staff - every request I made was accommodated in a pleasant manner. This property has free parking, indoor pool, hot tub.

The best part of this hotel is the service. Everyone who we interacted with, from the staff at the bistro to the woman who checked us in, were extremely warm and customer service-oriented. Unfortunately, the facilities look dated and are not in the best shape. The elevator seems to trap odors and smelled different every time we rode it. No... More

This Marriott is an older and run down property. It is in a nice area but overall it was subpar. Room was okay, floors looked dingy, no HD TV, no fridge or microwave in room.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel I appreciate you commenting on areas you felt could be improved. As with the majority of all hotels rates are reflective of hotel occupancy and the demand of the area and therefore can fluctuate similar to airline rates.

Had a web reservation with confirmed rate, but they tried to charge me 15$ more per night at checkout. Additionaly they billed breakfast altough it was already included in the rate. Found that out when I came home and checked CC activity. Had to spend than 15' on the ph with Marriott to get refunded. Tiresome!!
