Reviewed 14 April 2014

This Marriott property is located in an ideal place. Its within walking distance to the Wharf and many restaurants. A short drive to the Monterrey Aquarium and downtown area. Its maybe 15 min drive away from Carmel and 17 mile drive. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Not much parking for check-in but the bell hops are helpful in watching your car while you go in to check-in. Parking is either valet parking or you can self-park in a parking lot overnight about 2 blocks away for $7. Valet parking or street parking is the way to go if you are going in and out of the hotel during the day. The rooms are a bit dated but clean and they are remodeling the bathrooms. Breakfast buffet is good and you can order off the menu.

Room Tip: Hotel was crowded when we stayed but try to get a room facing the ocean. If not get a room above th...

Not the best Marriott, not the worst I've ever stayed in. Pros - really nice staff, everyone was super friendly. Cons - expensive parking - you can park down the street, but you pay in/out each time, so why bother. Rooms - supposedly have been redone recently - nice new tile, but the pocket doors are just plain old school and are very difficult to close, so you have a tub/toilet in one room with the pocket door and the sink in another area - okay if you're by yourself, a little inconvenient and not very personal with another guest in the room. It looks like it was built in the 70s - some of the reviewers must not stay in any decent hotels - this one is just average. WiFi was spotty at best. Had to roam around the room looking for a hot spot with my iPad. Gym is dated - could use an update - decent pool.

Room Tip: We asked for a view room - not much of a view, so save some dollars and don't overpay for a &quo...

I had a nice suit room. It had a small living room with a pull out couch, computer desk, flat screen Tv and bedroom. The be was very comfortable. Bathroom equipped with weight scale and all required amenities. Hotel had a small gym, coffee bar and a restaurant on a first floor. It is a couple of miles away from Cannery Row and aquarium. Service was great. You have to pay for valet parking about $20/night. There is a nice coffee breakfast shop and wine bar across the street.

The service was fantastic. They first upgraded us to a beautifully spacious and comfortable one bedroom; Then as I was unpacking, I found a wonderful birthday card for me which was signed by their staff. Unbelieveable! What a great way of greeting a guest and making them feel special. I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Ths hotel was beautiful, and the rooms were beautifully decorated. We were in awe of this place. It was very comfortable, and we got a good night's sleep. The parking is a bit expensive, but it is a beach town.

Enjoyed our stay at This Marriott property, the second we pulled into the entrance we received excellent service, the valet/bellman staff were very helpful and welcoming, my vehicle was brought up in a timely manner(every time),even when the driveway was busy and congested, I never felt like I was being rushed, they allowed me enough time to load kids and bags into vehicle, and was offered directions every time. Check in was the same, front desk staff were very nice, Ruby especially was very helpful, Diane in the bar/ grill was our server, she took care of us during happy hour, checked in on us periodically and made sure we were ok, food and drinks brought out pretty fast...overall we loved our stay, every staff we encountered we were greeted with smiles, and everyone looked like they were proud to work there, can't wait to stay here again.

Good location in Monterey and really nice hotel. Smart and modern and great location to walk out. Monterey in itself was a little disappointing as there was not much to do. Would recommend this hotel without question and we used a good stop off on our road trip
