Based on the reviews on this site and the pricing we were expecting a charming stay for the finale of a road trip around California. As some others have noted, the location is very convenient for the Aquarium which was good for us but the other aspects of Cannery Row were depressing and tacky. The view from our second floor (uk: first floor) ocean facing room were enjoyable and the staff pleasant and helpful. We also enjoyed the wine reception and the atmosphere in the lobby.
We're grading this three stars because of the room and the breakfast. We found our room cramped and a bit dated. The bed was two singles pushed together which was strange. We don't expect to have to pay for drinking water from a mini bar when the room tariff is already expensive and there is nowhere to buy reasonably priced bottled water in the vicinity. Breakfast in the room was not very nice and inconvenient.
