I was very satisfied with my experience at this hotel. The price was extremely reasonable for the area and the breakfast was outstanding. If you are expecting the Four Seasons, you will be disappointed. The rooms do show signs of aging, noise retention is not the best, and the bed was a bit softer than I prefer it to be. However, the owner Sarah is friendly and welcoming, and the other staff member, Chris, did his best to help out with info about the area. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering trip to Monterey or the surrounding areas who needs a budget-friendly place to spend the night.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. As you have noted our location gives us excellent access to all of the Monterey peninsula activities. We serve a nice continental breakfast with clean well kept rooms. Not the "Four Seasons" but a very good value as you have noted. Thank you for staying with us.

I was here last month, the Room was really great, very clean, and comfortable, the attention for the girl on the front desk was magnificent, this is really a great place to stay, and even better the price for the night was very low

Congratulations…
