“Nice fireplace in the room!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Stayed for one night during a longer journey through the states. A nice and comfortable place. Large rooms that include a fireplace (!), tv, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and free wifi, albeit with a very poor reception! Staff is friendly. Complimentary breakfast is sugar and carb loaded! All in all an ok place though!

Stayed December 2013, travelled with family

The hotel was clean and nice for the price. They need to update their tvs. No air conditioner and for heat they have the fake fireplaces which was cozy. The staff were really very nice. The hotel is not a large one.

Room Tip: This is a prime location so hotels are not cheap

My wife and I stayed in the king sized room for one night on our way down highway 1. The room was clean and spacious and it even had a working fireplace!

The breakfast wasn't much. Only fruit and some packaged snacks, but that was more than enough for us. There is also hot water and tea/coffee.

The pictures on their website made it look like just another inn but the room we were given was surprisingly pleasant. The room was a corner room with a nice forest view. The electric fireplace worked (good thing because it is chilly in Monterey). The beds were comfortable. The room was large. The bathroom was pretty sizable too. The room came with continental breakfast. It is conveniently located close enough to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row but doesn't have Cannery Row prices. Additionally, it is very close to 17-mile Drive, which is a beautiful place. Worth it.

This hotel came highly recommended to me, but for someone whom has traveled to the area multiple times, it was not I was expecting. The rooms were dark. The staff wasn't friendly. It smelled like smoke. To be honest, I didn't feel very safe there.

The cleanliness of this property is horrendous, Like the title says blood on the wall, dirty yellow mattress and sheets.I contacted the Front Desk about the issues and was told "i don't have time for this; contact expedia." Rude staff and disgusting property,Beware of this place!!!

We’d like to express our sincerest apologies on your unpleasant experience during your stay at the hotel. All that you’ve mentioned is inexcusable and concerning. We’d like to say that this is not how we normally run business as we follow a strict guideline when it comes to the cleanliness and customer service that our staff provides. We will investigate this matter and do everything we can to ensure this does not happen anymore. I hope this is not too late to express my apologies and we hope you will reconsider our hotel in your next visit in the bay area.

I spent one night here because it was recommended by a friend and the hotel I normally stay at was sold out for the night. The room was large. It was very dark and the room had no A/C just a heater as the weather in Monterey tends to be chilly. The room had an electric or gas fireplace that I did not know how to work. Overall, the hotel is not bad. The staff could be a bit friendlier and the location is central. It was fairly clean. I can't complain. The tv had a variety of cable channels that are usually not provided at other hotels so that was a plus.
