Getaway

My Stay was good, not great but I didn't have high expectations being only one night stay. Good hotel in good location, just needs more parking. I had to park my SUV at the next door hotel because they were all out of parking. Staff is minimal, but did hook me up with a bottle of wine for our anniversary which was a nice thought and appreciated.

more like a discount motel

Don t know why it has 3 stars. Would be ok for a 2 star motel, but not for a 3 star. Our room was tiny and dark. Our kids room was ultralarge, but not comfortable. It had only 1 bed cor 3 kids, but a second bed was hidden in a cuoboard. A litgle bit strange, everything. Breakfast was ok, the outerappearance with plants etc also.

Good location

This a decent place to stay in Monterey for short spell. Location is very convenient, short walk to shopping but also easy access to highway 1. They had a pool but we didn't try it. Breakfast was better than average but in smallish room. I would recommend if you are in town for business and/or on a budget
