Good Location

Posted 28-Sep-2014
Pros: The position, right by Fishermans walk for restaurants and Whale watching trips.
Cons: Definitely the pool
Location: 17 mile drive, Whale Watching, Carmel and Ocean A ensue is a must,
We found the overall location of the hotel to be very good, the pool was useless, very small about 30 in diameter and given the size of the hotel is completely inadequate and only had 10 sun beds, also the location of the pool is right at the back of the hotel which backs onto a four lane highway which has a metal grill which clatters every time you a car goes over it and it is going in to an underpass so the volume of the traffic is such that you can not talk to your partner or relax.

Fleas and Uncomfortable Bed

Posted 22-Sep-2014
Pros: Appearance of lobby and rooms, location, room amenities.
Cons: Mattresses, air conditioning, flea control
Location: Easy walking to Fisherman's Wharf. Close to Cannery Row. Overall great location.
The hotel was very pleasing in appearance but had some definite downfalls. Stayed in room on busy street side of hotel and it was very, very noisy. My daughter and I both received flea bites; since we were not traveling with animal, bites came as an unpleasant surprise. We were lucky enough to be in Monterey on a clear day in the 70's. Unfortunately, it made the lack of air conditioning a major problem, particularly since we could not open windows, even at night, because of noise. The uncomfortable mattress, flea bites, and lack of cool air flow made for a fitful night of sleep. On the plus side, on premise restaurant was very nice with overall good food. Staff was pleasant and courteous and hotel was well kept and had nice room amenities. My advice would be to inquire about street noise and whether pets had stayed in room.

A nice hotel for the location. You just have to hope for pleasant weather since no air conditioning.

Lovely hotel great for a relaxing spa break or a couple of days stopover. Aquarium a must see. There is a free bus shuttle that you can get a couple of minutes from the hotel which is great.

Well situated hotel.

Posted 11-Sep-2014
Pros: Rooms and position to amenities. Good breakfasts with omelettes made to order.
Cons: Although breakfast was good, staff were not that attentive.
Location: Good food, bike hire and walks within five minutes. The hotel spa was also very good.
The room was very spacious and clean. It was well situated near the harbour and good restaurants.

Good price and location

Posted 08-Sep-2014
Waking distance to Fishermans wharf area. Room was clean and comfortable, bathroom was nice and coffee maker and fridge in room was added bonus. Asked for quiet room but corner room we had was a bit loud both in day and night. Woke me up a couple times which was frustrating. Staff was nice.

Within walking distance of the sights to see

Posted 07-Sep-2014
Pros: Proximity to everything
Cons: There was air vent on the ground floor outside our room that hummed all night.
Location: The wharf was a 1 minute walk, Cannery row is about 15 minutes the beach path is great.
We went to the Italian Festival this weekend, we wanted to stay Friday night for the dancing and festivities on Saturday.. I wasn't for sure how close the hotel would be to the festival. The festival was right out side the back door. It was perfect, the weather was fabulous, the Joe Sharino Band Friday night was great, we had a blast. Walked to Cannery Row for Happy Hour then back to the festival for some Italian fun.

Great place to experience Monterey

Posted 03-Sep-2014
Great location nearby to all attractions. Good size room. Comfortable beds. Helpful staff. Cannot comment on the food as we did not eat at the hotel. As it's near fisherman's wharf be prepared for some noise if it's a holiday weekend.

The nice hotel for the runner

Posted 03-Sep-2014
Very close to Monterey Peninsula Recriational Trail. So my wife and I could run out from our hotel room. The Fisherman's wharf is within just 3 minutes walk but we also enjoied fresh vegetable and seafood dishes at the Jack's restaurant.

Good stay, good location.

Posted 02-Sep-2014
Although we stayed just one night at this Hotel, it left a good impression and I would come back. You can not beat the location, walking distance to everything. The pool is small, but nice.
