Poor choice - would not go back
We were completely disappointed in the hotel. We asked for a non smoking room. When we arrived and got our keys, we went to the room - the keys did not work. A maintenance worker let us in and the room smelled like smoke. We got switched to another building/room. Room was nice. It was late so we went to eat in the restaurant on property. Service slow, food dried out, appetizers brought as the same time as the meal. Was bad for other diners too. Poor man next to us didn't even get to eat his meal as the manager came over to ask him about something he refused and they started to "bicker" over it. He was very calm and matter of fact, but the manager wanted to prove her correctness instead of taking care of the situation and letting the man eat the food he was delivered. And this was for meals that are priced at $28 per entree'. Would not go back. Also, this hotel is not within 1/2 mile of Monterey Bay Aquarium as the website suggests - it is almost 3 miles away.
