Hotel was nice...but...

This place is average for a nights stay. Its off the beaten path of where you want to be. You have to drive to get to places like the wharf and Cannery Row. There is a free trolly to the wharf/Cannery Row/Aquarium but again you have to drive to the trolly and park your car. Upon checking in the staff is very nice. The room we had was spacious for 4 people, microwave and in-room coffee maker. I was a little perplexed of the $200/night though. Looking at the building at a walking pace, the paint details on the building were very bad. Over painting and smear marks the room paint looked like two colors of yellow. The bathroom closet door was open on top of doors. It could have been closed off. The pool water tasted of salt and not very clear. The pool ceiling had smears of white paint and looked of mold. Needed more fans to whisk away the smell of chlorine. It stayed in my nose for a long time. Overall it was a $200/nite hotel. Too expensive for a 3 star hotel especially with the comments I have written. Maybe management/owner will see this list and make some changes to the above listed comments. Until then I cannot recommend this hotel to anybody wanting to see our great Monterrey Peninsula

The room was comfortable and roomy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the convenience of the continental breakfast. The location made it easy to get to the Cannery and Aquarium.

I really like this hotel, had everything that we needed for just 1 night, the only inconvenience was the parking lot, to small and no space for our car

Peaceful Monterey Hotel

Hotel was tucked away & quiet. Hubby was disappointed with lack of his favorite sports channels. Staff was great, room was comfy & breakfast adequate. Yes, I'd stay again.

It was an okay hotel. There was a lot of slamming of the doors and just random noises at night.
