"Excellent hotel, friendly staff, great location."
We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of November (family of 4). The staff were warm, friendly and professional. We arrived near the end of their daily wine and cheese session, so the gentleman who checked us in ( sorry, I forgot your name!) invited us to join the session. While we were there, he arranged to have our bags taken to our room, which we found very considerate and professional. The room was comfortable. It had a working fireplace, which we didn't use. This hotel is a few minutes walk from the shops along cannery row, so extremely covenient. Parking is hassle-free, in a large underground carpark.
Location, location, location could not have been better, close to everything and easy to get on and off interstate. Hotel is very clean but just older, but that did not stoop us from liking it so much. They are doing good for the climate they have to endure. Breakfast was amazing in the cafe along with the view. Service was excellant. Loved our ocean front room. Only thing disliked was the parking for $18 a night. That added expense to our 3 day stay and there is no where else to park so you are stuck. Maybe charge it once per stay, not everyday. Nice to have safe in room too.

Just about everything you would expect from this level of hotel, then a little extra. I was pleasantly surprised, I expected less but exceeded my expectations. There were even simple eggs and sausage with the continental type breakfast! Huge rooms, almost the size of many "suites", very comfortable beds as well. Parking on site.
My wife keeps telling me it is the most relaxed she has been in recent memory. We travel a lot and stay in mostly 5 star hotels and resorts, so for her to be happy is not easy. It is also the first time we have rated anything because it takes too much time. We plan on putting the Ventana on our repeat list.
"Directly across from Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey"
We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. Mark was parking the car and heard our plans. He told Issandra (clerk at the front desk). She referred us to Domenicos restaurant at the wharf. Upon arriving, we were seated at a VIP table next to the window. We could see the sea lions and seals playing in the water. We received (free) a wonderful appetizer. Upon returning to the hotel, we found a bottle of sparkling cider, cheese snacks and a wonderful note from Issandra, Mark, Ruby, Ellie and Alyssa. Best Hotel staff and service ever!!!
