We booked this hotel because it is close to the area where my son will be attending college, and we were looking for housing for him. This hotel didn't really have a lot of extras like a jacuzzi or pool, but it was a nice room with a decent continental breakfast in the morning and was great for the price. It is centrally located near the school and the area where there are apartments to check out for college students.
The room was small, but looked out onto a pleasant courtyard with lush landscaping and a small pool. The location was wonderful. You could walk to Marina beach, which is part of a beautiful stretch of coast with miles of white sand and surf, and not many visitors. Fort Ord, with its huge expanses of coastal scrub, is also nearby. The hotel staff were pleasant, and there was a nice breakfast spread. The only downside was that the breakfast area was very small, crowded and noisy, and the housekeeping in the room left a lot to be desired. The tub needed a tad more scrubbing, one of the lights next to the bed was unplugged, requiring moving the mattress to plug in, and there were no water cups left on the bathroom sink, and no coffee cups with the coffee maker.
The hotel staff was very nice, the property was well kept and the room was clean. There was a Denny's in the same lot and Walmart across the street but not in sight. The beach was 5 minutes away. For those who like vac body weight workouts, the room was usable for that as well.

Stairs are a danger! Loose steps and rotting wood.(They were working on the otherside already just not ours). Room was nice could be a little cleaner (ie. Windows not foggy looking, back of bathroom door clean.) Our bathroom door didn't latch closed but it stayed shut as long as no one pushed on it. Staff was nice. Breakfast options were good. No pool but nice hot tub.

Great way to start our trip! We were upgraded to a suite right on the beach! Great room with an even better view!
Wish we could have stayed longer. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the golf cart as well! Came in late at night, but the first thing we saw when we opened our sliding glass door in the morning to sit on the balcony were dolphins! Then a little later a sea otter. Absolutely a thrill and so beautiful! Wish we had time to enjoy the outside fire pits on the beach!
The Pacific Ocean, a small airport, and California State University at Monterey Bay border this community just north of Monterey. Marina Dunes State Beach is popular for hang gliding, sunbathing, kite-flying, and hiking over 70-foot sand dunes. Fishing and pleasure craft dot the harbor. Marina Dunes Preserve, just north of the beach, offers beaches and dunes reclaimed from a former sand mine.
