Recently took my daughter on a small excursion to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium traveling along the 1 from Huntington Beach. We wanted to stay closer to the aquarium however there was a large car auction in town the same weekend so lodging was scarce and rates were at a premium. The Clarion was a clean place a little off the beaten path, they served a nice morning continental breakfast and have a heated indoor pool. The wharf and cannery district are about a 5 - 7 min drive. As I mentioned this is a nice clean place but if your looking for something with a view and charming character you may want to try somewhere else. This is your typical above par but not excellent travelers chain hotel, I am sure well worth their normal rates but I felt the rate because of the car auction was a little too high but the hotel was charging what everyone else was so I can understand. The room had a low ceiling which made it appear small and boxed in also it was a little dated but as I said clean and did have a fridge, wifi, large tv, etc. if your traveling on business or alone and just want somewhere cool and quiet this is for you! I would not recommend as a romantic getaway location. Couple of things I will say, Diego the check in guy and all the staff were very friendly! There's a cool little bay right nearby to take a little walk then get dinner in town at the wharf however it's not quite close enough to walk. Also the comforter could have used a cleaning, but the sheets and linens were quite clean and fresh. Enjoy!
