“Comfortable and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Warmly greeted by the host and check in was a breeze. Room was clean and good sized. Our room had partial bay view. Bed was quite comfortable, not too soft or firm. Room has small refrigerator, coffee maker, sofa, desk and Wi-Fi. Breakfast was good and a nice variety, but some items suffered from being kept warm. Hotel is located within walking distance to Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf.

I traveled here with my family last year and we had a great time! The location of this hotel is everything!!! Literally steps from Cannery Row. I am a runner, and the running path is right outside the front doors of the hotel. The hotel is walking distance to the Aquarium (about 10-15 min) and local shops and attractions.

The hotel serves a nice free breakfast which is a plus traveling with a family, is clean, and quiet. Would love to stay here again, but it is a little on the high end price wise.

p.s. there is a nice little café across the street of the hotel (I forgot the name) that served good food for a good price.

Room Tip: We had a room on the top floor, 1 king and sleeper sofa, and we had a nice partial view of the ocean...

Stayed in a spacious room with a King sized bed and a sofa bed with partial sea view. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. There are ample parking lots at the basement. Short walk to Cannery Row or you could hop onto the tram which stops right outside the hotel.

Breakfast is at the lobby area with limited seating. Be prepared to share a table with fellow travelers or wait a little. Good variety including hot dishes, cereals, juices, pastries, pancake, hot chocolate, coffee and tea.

Stopped off here for one night while doing a road trip down Route 1, the receptionist was so friendly and helpful, and very willing to assist with receipt of my luggage which my airline kindly lost for me - I can't full remember his name but I think it was Sanjay? In any case, a true gent and we appreciated his help, friendliness, and the tip off for local food places.
Room was bigger than we expected, cleanliness was good, nothing too glam but did exactly what we needed and we were glad to find somewhere that night so easily.

Not your usual modern 'block' hotel but an old American style which fitted in beautifully with it's surroundings in Monterey. Big, clean rooms, comfy bed and bathroom with endless hot water and towels. Easy walking to the shops and restaurants on Cannery Row and the Orr attractions of the area.

The complimentary breakfast was one of the best we have enjoyed this holiday and the afternoon wine and cheese a welcome surprise at the end of a day exploring (walking)

Would certainly return and recommend to friends who are travelling.

First off I would like to say, the hotel staff or very friendly!My family and I stayed there for 2 nights and the first day we arrived we went straight to The Aquarium at about 11:00 am because hotel check in wasn't until 3:00 pm so after the 4 hour visit we arrived at our hotel to check in and the hotel employee explained to us that we could have checked in early and saved on a purchase of 2 day Aquarium tickets for the price of 1 and the hotel offers free parking so that would have saved us $15.00.What a steal...Oh well next time we know. I'm writing this review because I want people to know what I didn't and so you can get a good deal:) Also have to say that the hotel offers free breakfast. I thought it was just going to be cereal and fruit but it was the works, pancakes,eggs,bacon,oatmeal.toast,bagels,muffins,fruit,raisin bread,yogurt,juice,milk,coffee...It was pretty good for being free can't complain!

I stay in this hotel by redeeming my free night voucher in hotels.com
The hotel location is perfect near the fisherman wharf ( anyway the village itself is pretty small though ) the room that I stayed is huge , have 2 double beds and 1 sofa bed , the decoration is American art deco , I like it . They also provide free Express breakfast where they have express machine to make pancake

Tips : do explore the area as well such as 17 mile drive
