I enjoy the IC every time I have to work in Monterey. I also enjoy it for a weekend diving getaway.
Location: in the middle of Cannery Row. 3-5 min walk to the aquarium, Starbucks & best restaurants in town. 5-10 min drive to Breakwater, 20 to Point Lobos.
Customer Service: 2 thumbs up to the IC team.
Rooms: very comfortable. I've stayed in ocean front, balcony & the cheapest rooms. All are great!
Restaurant: nothing spectacular. I highly recommend yelping brunch and dinner spots.
Spa: no sauna, steam room or spa hot tub. You can use the hotels outdoor pool and hot tub. Maybe this is ok for others but I prefer a private one for a quiet spa day.
I had a facial, body scrub & massage.
Each service was nice & relaxing. The hotel offered this as a special. My only real/silly issue was the locker key. It was attached to a bell the size of a Christmas ornament. Nothing like walking around naked in a robe with a huge ball in the pocket where my privates are. Silly.. I know. But silly enough to irritate me.
More diving info: I know the IC may not sound ideal with all our gear but it is so nice to throw all your wet gear right from your car to a cart. And more importantly, I love a nice comfy bed after diving :-)
2 thumbs up to the IC.
