Pros: Real California style buildings, large rooms and great service.
Cons: Breakfast was expensive and not very good - served quickly but was cold, coffee needs a big improvement.
Location: Close the all amenities, wharf is a five minute walk and the aquarium is just 15 minutes along the scenic bay. Good selection of restaurants close by.
Lovely facility with nice rooms located within easy walking distance to many attractions, restaurants and bars. Very clean hotel and grounds with convenient free parking. Nice pool/hot tub that is clean and well maintained. Staff are all excellent and very friendly.

Very comfortable hotel

Posted 16-Sep-2014
Pros: The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable.
Cons: The ice machine could be less noisy.
Location: The hotel is a short drive to Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row where a visit to the aquarium is a definite must.
We had a very nice 2 night stay on our way to LA. The hotel is very clean with nice comfortable spacious bedrooms. Having a fire in your room is a bit different and I'm sure lovely when the weather turns cooler. The staff were friendly and efficient, especially the waiter serving breakfast. The hotel is a little way from Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row so a car is beneficial. We would definitely recommend the hotel.

Not what I was expecting

Posted 09-Sep-2014
Pros: Staff
Cons: Parking, sound deadening
Location: Not much. Had to pretty much drive everywhere. Good breakfast place across the street, The Wild Plum.
My wife and I have visited Monterey at least a dozen time in the years we have been married. We have never stayed at the same place twice. We love to try new things to see what we are missing. We had just been in Monterey in February of this year and really like the hotel we stayed at. This time though, I wanted something special for my wife so, being unable to afford the real high end places over there, I popped for a high-mid priced location. For 2 nights our bill for the room and taxes was a bit over $400.00. When we first arrived, the desk clerk said that we had been upgraded to a premium room for no extra charge. How nice I thought. This room was the exact same room that was in the picture of the room I booked! Identical, no upgrade. Don't get me wrong, the room was nice and clean, but there was a bed, a TV, and a tiny refrigerator, nothing more. The bed was hard, the pillows were tiny and felt like marshmallows and our premium room faced one of the busiest streets in Monterey, even though I told the clerk I wanted their quietest room. Again, we only had other hotels we have stayed at to compare to, but the last hotel we stayed at was 1/3 less price, better location and gave us a delicious continental breakfast that the Abrego doesn't. All in all, we won't stay here again.

Good spot out of the way

Posted 19-Aug-2014
Pros: good quiet position - easy to find and short walk into town
Cons: Pool was on small side with only a few loungers
Location: Carmel is a short drive away and Monterey town is a short walk ... longer if you want to go down to Cannery Row
Hotel is in good spot just out of the town centre with just a 10 min walk to the front - stayed 2 nights on trip and was a great position

Would not recommend

Posted 11-Aug-2014
Pros: Conveninetly located. Pretty to look at
Cons: Customer service.
First of all, I traveled with my 92 year old mother. I had asked for a ground floor room to accommodate my mother but the front desk said all ground floor rooms were taken. (We spoke to Front Desk at 9 am but could not register until 4pm that day- by then all the ground floor rooms were assigned). The building had NO elevator and there were 15 steep steps to climb. We had a terrible time trying to carry our luggage up the 15 stairs. My mom almost fell. There were no bell hops around to assist. Second, although the bathrooms look pretty, there is absolutely NO counter space. We had to put our tolietires on top of the toilet or on the floor beside the toilet. Who designed this? A Man, I'll bet. Third, there are no vending machines. If you want a soda you have to go Building 1 to buy from the front desk. (We were in Bldg 4). Not convenient at all.
