If you like the antique styling, this is a nice-looking hotel. The location is great, also... right in the middle of downtown Monterey. There are lots of great cafes on the same street!
I have stayed at several hotels and motels in the Monterey area, and I didn't enjoy my one-night stay. There is a salon at the entrance of the hotel, and each time we walked through to the lobby, there was always a smell of nail polish and hair coloring, even when no one was there. There is no elevator, so you had to walk up the stairs and it was loud whenever anyone walked up the stairs. The rooms were small. There were four of us and our room had two double beds. There was no room to walk around. We literally had to climb over the bed if someone was watching tv because the armoire doors were up against the bed! The bathroom was spacious but didn't seem very clean... The walls were also very thin. I was awoken in the middle of the night by banging on the wall by our neighbors. In the morning, we could hear kids playing in the hallway.
I would never choose to stay here again. There are motels about a half a mile away that are cheaper and nicer, and offer a more relaxing stay.
