Close to what we wanted to visit in Monterey

We only stayed for a night. The hotel is close to the main touristic places in Monterey. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had some difficulty getting to it because it is right off the 399B exit and we missed it. So, keep your eyes open. Otherwise, it was a good stay and we would not have expected anything less or more for what we paid for.

Meh

If this is a 3 star hotel...gross. Changed rooms once because the bathroom was dirty. Peeling wallpaper, outdated rooms, popcorn ceiling, broken baseboards, etc. about the only thing that was OK were the beds were comfortable. Worked for one night but would not go back again. Too many other hotels to choose from.

Met our needs

We arrived a little early for check in but they had a room available so we got settled in about 4 hours early. The room was pretty standard but clean and had all the essentials. I would go back again for sure. The fridge in the room and the option for room service was nice. The restaurant had good food too.

The Monterey bay aquarium can be quite pricey, it was $35 for an adult and its not even that big. We spent about an hour and saw everything, even as crowded at is was. I would not gave spent the money if I knew how small it was.

Monterey CA. Escape

Great value, convenient right off Route 1 and within bicycle ride or walk to Fisherman's wharf and Cannery Row ( 1.3 mile) and Del Monte shopping Center (across the street).. Very clean, well maintained, large pool, plenty of parking, friendly helpful staff. Hotel is older, multi-story,could use updating.. The room was quite cold at first, but we turned the heat on and went to dinner and it was toasty the rest of our stay. A path starts across the street from the hotel and goes to Fisherman's Wharf and connects to a longer path that starts along side the sand dunes and goes to Pacific Grove. We were told it goes 25 miles, but we did not go that far on either end. We sampled the middle and it felt safe, no steep inclines, and beautiful bay views. We rode past Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf and along the bay.

Good Value for Monterey

It's right off Highway 1 and across from a popular mall. We came early and they were able to let in to our room. It was a corner room in the back,clean and comfortable. Even though it's right next to the highway I didn't hear car noise at night and slept well. We also enjoyed the hotel restaurant which has an award-winning salad bar, which includes Marianne's ice cream or sorbet(a popular Santa Cruz ice cream maker).
