Large, lovely room. Great staff. Quiet location near a beautiful beach, and quite close to Monterey Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row, without the tourist hustle/bustle. Did a side trip to Carmel Mission, Julia Pfeiffer Big Sur, the Steinbeck Museum in Salinas, down the road to Castroville for fried artichokes, and was glad to return to our beautiful room in Marina. At one point, they were holding a Mary Kay party right next to our room. At first I was a bit concerned about the loud music, but then took my camera, saw the ladies having a great time, and it only lasted a short while. Because I called Guest Services when the noise first started, they gave us a lovely goodie bag and were totally sweet and sorry for the inconvenience. Really lovely place - we would definitely stay there again! So much to see in the area. Never made it up to Santa Cruz, but would choose this hotel for that trip as well.
