My boyfriend and I stayed here this past Labor Day weekend. We selected this hotel because it's centrally located to Cannery Row and the ocean. We called the front desk clerk because we were arriving late and were worried that it being Labor Day our room would be given away. The desk clerk said it wasn't a problem and we arrived at about 7:00 pm. The hotel is right across the street from Cannery Row and 1 block from the ocean. The basic room was very clean and comfortable, however there was no Air Conditioner. I thought it would be a problem at first with all of our shuffling about to get settled, etc. Once we settled in, however, there was a nice ocean breeze and we realized we didn't really need the AC after all with the window open (safe on the 3rd floor). The beds were extremely comfortable and the hotel rooms and other hotel guests were quiet. The ONLY caution that I have is that there are seagulls perched everywhere squawking all night long and one morning I even awoke to a barking sea lion, but it's not the hotel's fault and I actually loved being near the ocean. All the hotels along Cannery Row have the same problem. Also, the bands from the nightclubs are very loud and music goes until Midnight. None of these are the fault of the hotel. But if you are the sort of person that needs complete peace and quiet to sleep, then stay in one of the larger hotels away from Cannery Row.The free parking, in-room refrigerator, reasonable price and goodie basket were a nice touch. Staff were very helpful and nice and I would definitely stay there again if I didn't want to stay at a fancier place.
