Great for Families

This is right on the sand. You still need to walk about 5-10 max. to the beach entry. There are lots of kids. So your kids will have fun. It quieted down about 10:00 pm. We slept great even though the beds were a little old and it was not too sound proofed. It is a great location, right off the freeway. It's close to shopping centers and about 30 minutes to get to Monterey, including looking for and finding parking. Great for the value.

While you are there, take a look at Pacific Grove. It is a cute little city, filled with antiques.

Fun Location, Good Price, basic hotel

If you're expecting a basic hotel, you'll get one here. Appreciate the price for a clean space. The hotel is located almost on the beach and beautiful views. It's on the first street away from a state park. The area only has three hotels, which make it quiet and seem remote -- if that's what you'e looking for.

It's good for what it is

Here with my daughter for a softball tournament. Just needed something clean, cheap, and comfortable. It didn't need to be a Ritz Carlton. It's super close to the beach. Place was clean, safe, and perfectly fine for $120. My only gripe is that the walls are thin and when somebody's walking around outside talking, they might as well be in your room. Also, plumbing from another room was loud so it woke us up. But hey, minor complaints.

Monetary bay aquarium

Hotel was pretty good for what we paid for. Not too far from our destination which was the aquarium, room was kind of small but clean, there was no microwave or fridge but other than that has all the basic things you need.

business trip

Place was clean but very small. Light sensor didn't stay on long enough & main light wasn't working. Couldn't enjoy the continental breakfast because it started @ 7am & I had to be out by 6:30am for my morning appointment

We had a really nice room with beach access not even a block away. There were so many stores close by and only a 10 min drive from Monterey. We plan on returning to this hotel in the future. We got a great price and absolutley no complaints.

Nice location

But the rooms are small and damp. The wifi did not work although we were signed in. Seeing this was a business trip we didn't get much work done. Towels old and thin. The morning breakfast was ample but the room it was held in was way too small and if you didn't get there by 8:30 on the weekend all was gone even the coffee. Great location. Short walk to the beach which I loved, but the hotel is in desperate need of upgrading.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Stay in hotels outside of Monterey. It's a short drive from all surrounding towns. And more affordable. If coming to Monterey on a 3 day trip come on Friday, be sure to get reservations before you leave home.
