Great place to stay
When I go to Monterey, this is the first place I check for availability. I have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed. Friendly staff, quiet rooms, fairly affordable considering the area. This hotel is directly across from Lovers Point Park and Monterey Bay. The pedestrian walk/bike path that goes all the way to Cannery Row begins at the park.
Parking is a bit challenging, but if there is no place out front, there is always a spot in the underground garage, just a little tight for maneuvering.
The rooms are nicely decorated, and the pillows are great (I have to have good pillows).
