Everything surprised us. The staff is very helpful, the room is extremely spacious and clean, the location is great and the price is very reasonable! Everything you need is in walking distance and the parking is free so you don't need to worry about the safety of your stuff.

From check in to check out, this hotel has an A++ score!!! This weekend was at least my 10th time staying here in the last couple years. It's my "go-to" hotel when planning a trip to Monterey. I always try to book the King room with sofa. My gosh...the bed is so comfortable and the room is very large with a full size sofa that becomes a bed. We never need it for that but it's great to have a comfy couch to sit on when watching TV. The TV is a 42" flat screen with DirecTV. Lots of channels and HBO. The room is so clean!!! There's a fridge and a safe and a pretty large closet area along with many drawers for storage. The staff is SO FRIENDLY!! You also get free continental breakfast and a wine and cheese reception every afternoon at 5:30. I've traveled the world and can honestly say that this is the most comfortable place I stay! Great job!!!

Whenever possible I stay at an HIE and this one of the best. I really liked the updated decor of my room. The exterior is pretty and in keeping with the location. My friend commented when we drove up that she didn't recognize it as an HIE. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location could not be more convenient. The only flaw is that you have to go up a few steps (with luggage) to get to the elevator from your room.

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.
