Weekend getaway

Overall, average. We liked the new decor but were a bit dismayed when the towel rack installed just before we got to our room fell off the next day and crashed to the ground. The plaster was still wet! Walls are thin so we could hear muffled conversation and also children and a crying baby. All that is normal but a little disruptive to other guests. If the walls were insulated noise levels would be diminished considerably. Location near the ocean was great!

pretty lousy

For the prices charged, it is a pretty lousy deal. Don't try to find it without a GPS! A very basic room, flimsy towels, an office/receiption/breakfast room that does not open until 8am, and when it does you get half-muffins and coffee with standing room only for 3. Pay a little more and get a decent hotel!

Awesome time on the Peninsula!

Facilities were clean and neat. Staff was helpful and polite. Parking a little tight, but their parking lot was full in the morning - that must tell you something.

Cute, out of the way

My biggest complaint was that it was hard to find. Once I realized its proximity to the major streets, etc, it wasn't hard to make it back, but for a stranger to the area, it was a bit confusing. I got a Queen Cottage. The little cottages are cute and appropriate for 1-2 people. Walls are thin, so you hear everything going on outside. A little old fashioned, but look like they've been recently painted and updated on the interior. I was surprised to find a fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the cottage, right next to the small dining table. The bed was fairly comfortable. TV was small, but appropriate for the room. Not enough appropriately placed electrical outlets. Desk staff was extremely nice. Check in and check out were fast and painless. Continental breakfast was muffins, instant oatmeal, coffee and tea (thank you for the tea!) All in all, if you like out of the way places that are quaint and not your typical hotel/motel, this is a nice place.

Nice independent cottages

Every thing fine except for courtesy continental breakfast. What offered was muffins, juice & coffee only. No sit down place.

Nice location, but will not stay again

Hotel room was small. Some I guess would call that cozy. The rooms do not have a fan or a/c, so you have to leave the wondows open to get fresh air. The bed was very uncomfortable. We stayed here two nights and our bodies were hurting. There is a small TV on top of the closet. The location of the hotel is nice. it's about a block from the ocean. The hotel front desk hours are 8am-10pm, so no one is able to help you out of those hours. We did get samples of tooth paste, Axe hair products and shampoo.

Great midweek getaway

This was our first experience with SeaBreeze Inn and Cottages--won't be our last! Staff couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful. We love to walk and the location was perfectly centered on the penninsula to allow us to walk everywhere. Discount tickets to local attractions served as icing on the cake.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The walk to the Monterey Bay aquarium is 1.6 mi, but if you take the path along the shoreline, it seems much shorter and is much more interesting than the hotel's recommended route.

Great stay for quick trip.

We really enjoyed the location and general comfort of the hotel. Matresses were firm but comfortable. Newer decor with modern furnishings in room with 2 queen size beds. Bathroom needs updating. Floor was a little creaky near cabinet with TV. For a weekend stay with kids, worked great. Nice simple breakfast with muffins, oatmeal, coffee, tea, and fresh OJ. Also great Vietnamese restaurant next door, "An Choi." Their claypot with bassa fish was very tasty.

Perfect Getaway

Staff was warm, friendly and helpful upon checkin. Room was recently remodeled, very nice. It had a small microwave and refrigerator in the room. Coffee maker available upon request. They served muffins, juice and coffee for breakfast (8:15 - 10:00 am). May not meet early riser requirements. Everything in the room worked well and was comfortable with 2 nice lounge chairs. Would have been nice to have a table to place between the chairs for games etc. Nice location, walk to the ocean. Check this one out you will not be disappointed.
