“Not worth the price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

As most of the others say, great rooms, great location, heck, pretty much a fantastic hotel, all said. However, during my recent stay, I was woken by noises outside my room not once, not twice, but three (that I remember) times during the night. The first was obscenely loud techno music, the next, revelers looking for their rooms (not a problem, normally and, had sleep shown up that night, nothing to write home about), and then at 6 or 7, what I assume were workers arrived and had an incredibly loud shouting match/conversation outside my window. None of this is the problem. I could live with any and all of that. The issue I take with the hotel is the price it charged me and the assumption on my part that it would be better than a Super 8. It's not, not by any means, and I will be saving the 300 dollars I spent on a room in which I couldn't sleep and just stay at the Best Western next time I'm in the neighborhood. At least they won't charge me for breakfast...

Room Tip: Book the Best Western next door.

We stayed at the Hotel for one night as part of our California road trip. We found the staff extremely friendly on check-in, giving advice on where to go for dinner in Carmel that the evening and also recommending the 17 mile drive which was well worth it.

We found the room to be clean and spacious. The bed comfortable and the Wi-Fi reliable.

It's a shame we had to leave early in the morning as we did not get the opportunity to try any of the hotels facilities or breakfast.

A flying visit, but I would still thoroughly recommend the hotel, it was one of the nicest we stayed in during our visit to California.

The staff also recommended some great places to eat on the Big Sur as we continued our road trip. These were also very good recommendations!

We stayed here for 1 night after doing the 17 mile drive in Carmel. Everything was great. The room was spacious and tasteful and although there was no elevator, the hotel did give us help to carry our luggage one floor up. Most hotels in the area do not have air conditioning - the day that we were there, it was quite humid, so that hotel gladly provided a fan which was adequate for a few hours, while it got cooler outside. The hotel is near the Cannery row and Fishermans wharf so we went for a stroll and dinner on Cannery Row, which we thought was a cute little area.

Recommend this hotel for sure !

We stayed here whilst on a roadtrip and were originally being booked into a boutique B&B in Carmel; as they didnt get back to our travel agent we reviewed other options and chose to stay here.

The hotel comprises a main building and a separate motel-like building. Big plus is the free parking (with ample parking spaces) and proximity to key sights and historical area - its just 10-15 mins walking distance. Great for us as we walk everywhere at home, and it was a relief for my husband not to have to drive out again for dinner.

I concur with other reviewers. We came with heavy suitcases so would not have enjoyed lugging them up and down stairs had we been in the "motel" section ...which is where our room had been allocated. I also prefer to have a cooler room so air con is must!

I rang ahead after reading the reviews here and subsequently secured room 1201 in the main building, which was accessible by elevator. It was bright and spacious with air con (essential it was a bit stuffy inside and as the room faces traffic on two sides it would not have been practical to open the windows - and that said I have to add we were not disturbed by the traffic, and though I wouldn't say the walls here were thin, we did keep hearing thud noises from the room above, like someone was throwing heavy things onto the floor).

We didn't use the pool or eat at the hotel - to be frank there is a lot more to choose from out and around.

On one night we hit the main Wharf, tried out 3 of the chowders on offer, and chose our restaurant based on that (we went to Crab Louie - not the Ritz but honest, fresh flavoursome seafood and fish). The next night we hit a gem of a Mexican restaurant called Turtle Bay Taqueria. For breakfast we simply picked up some pastries from the many cafes.and bakeries around, and made ourselves some coffee with the coffeemaker provided.

We had a very comfortable nights sleep and the bed was luxurious. Plenty of sitting space and the shower was amazing!

All on all you will enjoy your stay here, and its a better place to stay to cover the whole of the Peninsula including Pacific Grove (idea: don't bother paying for the 17 mile beach drive; take 68 to Pacific Grove - stopping at the Safeway to pick up hot or cold food - then foĺow the 68 towards Asilomar coast where there.are plenty of points for you to stop for a picnic; the go in to Pinos Point Lighthouse and on to Cannery Row. This will make for quite an enjoyable morning/afternoon.) And of course a drive into Carmel where you should include a stop at Carmelo Borromeo.

Just be sure of what you will need from your room and call ahead with sufficient notice to get it sorted out with the staff who are quite helpful.

Easily accessible from Highway 1 for those driving the coastal road. Our room was very spacious with everything needed. The hotel has a small pool and gym. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast (paid) was very reasonable and large portions. Fisherman's Wharf is just a 10 minute stroll or you can get the free wave trolley across the road at the Plaza.

This was our first visit to the hotel, and it won't be our last. The Location places guest within walking distance to most points of interest in Monterey. The room was spacious with a huge bathroom. We have stayed at several hotels in the Monterey/Carmel area and feel this is without a doubt the best value we have found. Worth every penny.
