Stayed for 2 nights here on route back to San Fran. Hotel is close to alot of sites around Monterey and the Big Sur.
Check-in was stress free and the lady who served us was very nice and pleasant, on our way to our room, got our hot cookies, stayed in a Portola King overlooking the square in the State Park. Spacious room and bathroom, really comfortable.
Car parking $17 a day and you can come and go as you please, good value.
Ate in the in-house brewery one night, great fish and chips and some local brews. Good way to spend a few hours.
Behind the hotel into the town there are plenty of restaurants, so you will never be short of a place to eat. The hotel is in 2 parts, one by the car park and the main section. Our room was down from reception, up a small flight of stairs. All was good.
It is in walking distance to Cannery Row, but if you dont want to walk, a free trolley service is a stones throw close to the Wharf. Hotel is in a great location.
Recommended hotel to my cousin, he is just back from Portola and loved it.
