“Sleeping under a Freeway”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

This hotel sits on the sidewalk of the busy 4 lane than runs through Monterrey. Every time a truck would ride by our bed would shake with deafening noise. There are exactly 4 parking spots for this hotel located in a dark alley behind it. A very noisy auto repair shop located very close next door. I asked the mgr for another room away from the front. She gave me keys to 2 rooms further back......noise was just the same. Speaking of the door key, its a hard key type that is no joke about 24 inches from the floor. No joking, had to get on my knees every time I opened the door. Everything in the bathroom was rusted. Molding had fallen off of bathroom window. The surrounding area of this hotel looks like a ghetto. Breakfast was terrible. Omlett was a cooked egg folded over. Nothing inside. Its your money, waste it if you want too. We stayed in 5 different hotels on our trip to Cal. This place is a dump. Anyone who writes a good review about this place could be sold anything. FYI. My wife and I are not very demanding people. This place is just a dump.

Room Tip: No quiet rooms at this hotel. Stay elsewhere is the best tip I can give

My Partner and I were celebrating our 1 year anniversary. We work a lot and I knew this had to be the place for us. It was a Phenomenal experience. We arrived around 9:45 to be created by a wonderful young man Lance. He was very attentive in getting our bags out of the car and into the room. Parking is limited by the staff goes out of the way to help you find close parking. When I arrived at the front desk I was greeted by Nashua. She saw I was tired and hungry and immediately offered me a glass of wine poured by Lance (also the bartender) and went in the kitchen to make me some bread, cheese, and prosciutto. Old world hospitality folks. The staff understands it and it is hard to find these days. Hotel is very cozy and comfortable. Breakfast is great and Nick (The Owner) personally cooks for you and serves you table side. We then went on the roof to sit in a outdoor heated patio as we sipped on our mimosas. It was a short trip but well worth it. Get a Jacuzzi tub well worth it. Thank you Nick, Nashua, And Lance!!! We will be back....... :)

Room Tip: Norma Jean or Marilyn Monroe Suites Is the way to go!

Dump...... Next to auto repair shop...noises. Could not take a nap after traveling. Toilet seat was broken. Sink lose from wall. No air conditioning. Had room on first floor afraid to leave window open since we were next to alley. No or little parking had to park around the corner... Make up mirror broken. Staff was nice and view was nice . Take stairs.... Elevator is questionable .lock doors @ 10 pm , but you get a key. Sum it up OLD ..pictures can be deceiving

Room Tip: No pool.. Fitness center is taking the stairs.

Bed was too big for room, you couldn't walk around it! Room very dark, no air conditioning couldn't open windows as at front of hotel which was on the main road. Couldn't access the parking as it was blocked by garage pickup trucks. Too far from centre of town, No choice of breakfast. One night more than enough

Don't judge a book by it's cover!
This phrase came to mind when my wife and I arrived outside the hotel. Stuck between a tattoo parlour and a McDonald's regional management office, you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd got the address wrong on the busy thoroughfare that is Del Monte Avenue. Just go with it and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Once through the big doors you forget about the traffic on the street outside and are immediately calmed with the ambience of the lobby and bar area. Nashua greeted us at the desk for check-in and obligingly showed us two rooms as we were concerned about the noise of traffic at the front! It turned out the windows were double, maybe even triple glazed, so we decided to stay with the front room which was bigger with a king-size bed! With no air-con we requested a fan to keep us cool while the windows were closed at night. For the sensitive sleepers among you, bring ear-plugs!
We fell in love with this little boutique B & B. The complimentary drink during happy hour is certainly a great start and you get the opportunity to chat with Lance, the bartender, who is a fountain of local knowledge. He's only too willing to help you out and recommend some great places in and around town.
With it being Labor Day weekend most restaurants were booked out, but he suggested the Sandbar & Grill where we could rock up and wait for a table or eat at the bar. Turned out to be a great shout. We managed to get a spot at the bar and the food was delicious!
Lance also suggested a hike for us down past Carmel at Point Lobos State Reserve which was a great day out. So listen to the guy, he knows his stuff!
The breakfast at the hotel was just what the doctor ordered! Although it alternates each day we devoured the Greek yoghurt with honey and walnuts followed by waffles with syrup and berries, the next day enjoying scrambled eggs, sausage and potato wedges... All served with infinite coffee and tea of your choice. Not too much on the plate but enough to satisfy... Just right! Nashua keeps you topped up and always ensures you're happy so make sure to say "shukran" to her!
The rooftop is a special place overlooking the bay where you can relax, soak up the sun, enjoy a glass of wine or read a book. We even used their BBQ to cook some salmon we got from the organic market store on the seafront. Was rather romantic as we sat and watched the sunset over the hills... A great way to finish off our day. OK there's a buzzing power line right by the hotel but hey, it won't ruin the romance... What are iPods and speakers for?
Just a short 10-15min walk from the centre of town and the main areas of the seafront, Hotel 1110 is in a great location. Yes it's on a busy Del Monte Avenue, but like I said, once you're through those iron-wrung doors, the road is but a memory. The spa-jacuzzi in the bathroom should also melt any stresses away... Go easy on the bubbles, I lost my wife in there!
Don't overlook this little gem, it would be criminal!

Hello, and thank you so much for your review. We are glad to hear that you were pleased with the reception area. It is our hope to welcome in our guest with a warm friendly environment. We do our best to accommodate however we can. In fact the windows are double pane double windows, so four layers of glass to eliminate any outside noise. Its great that you that you took the opportunity to talk to our staff. We love to give advise on where to eat and play.
Breakfast is one of our favorite times of the day here. Its our chance to send you off for the day nice and happy and hopefully the joy continues.
Isn't the roof deck great? We love it up there too and we are constantly adding fun little extras up there so next time you come it will be a bit different.
Thank you both for the pleasure of serving you and please come again and stay and say hi.

We stayed at this hotel and found it to be funky and fun in the interior. The service was very good as was the breakfasts and happy hour with free appetizers. The roof deck was furnished very nicely and they were in the process of installing heaters and firepits -a great place to wind down the day and you can see the ocean and views around. The hotel is situated within walking distance to Fishermans Wharf. Canery Row is further away but we walked there too. The rooms however are small and do not have air conditioning however we were provided with a fan when we asked for one. (Some rooms don't have windows, so don't be afraid to ask for one that does!).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window and one at the back of the hotel as the road is a busy one.

Thank you for your review. The hotel does provide many services that are included in the stay, like wine tasting and breakfast. Its great that you took advantage of the rooftop deck. It really is a gem up there. We are only half a mile from the wharf and just above one mile to cannery row. The rooms are European style with no need for air conditioning due to sea climate of Monterey and the free use of fans.
