This was my first trip to Monterey. I initially was going to stay at the Monterey Plaza but then Travel Zoo had a great deal on this " 4 star" hotel. I am definately glad I got the discount becuase I would have been upset if I would have pain full price. Pros: the hotel was in a great location, just a short walk from Fisherman's Wharf, there were very nice galleries accessible from the hotel lobby. Cons: Upon pulling in it took a bit for the valet to even acknowledge us, there is some sort of construction going on in the lobby and the lobby is full of flies, one fly was in our room, we had to have the shower curtain changes because it was filthy, cookies upon arrival? well we had to ask for that, aquarium tickets? well when we asked for those the lady at the front desk said no then she said she would look and she found some (now why couldn't she just have looked in the first place). I travel a lot and this hotel certainly did not meet my expectations and I would have been quite upset if I would have paid full price.
