Clean & comfortable one night stay

The staff were friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Comfortable bed and pillows. Quiet at night, even for a New Year's Eve night. The room wasn't large, but it was perfect for a one night stay. Pleasantly surprised that there was a fridge/freezer and microwave. Ice machine was out of order, unfortunately. Didn't get a chance to use the pool/hot tub, unfortunately. Very happy with the continental breakfast: hot waffles, cereal, pastries, apples, coffee, milk, and orange juice. The hotel was located in an area that didn't have much traffic. Great value (pretty much no complaints); I just personally would have liked to spend a little less on a hotel stay. I would definitely keep in mind Clarion for future hotel stays.

Good stay

The room was relatively small but has two rooms. Each room has a queen bed, which worked perfectly for us four. It is rare to find indoor pool in california, which is a plus. Breakfast is good; oat meal was actually cooked (not instant food) and tasty. Overall it was a nice pleasant stay.

Hidden treasure

We travel to professional meetings regularly. The Clarion was about six blocks from the College where we had meetings, and about a mile from Fisherman's Wharf and the beach. I was in middle management at one of Hilton's largest hotels where cleanliness and service were priority 1. The Clarion matched all my expectations from a hotel. The refurbished rooms are very clean and cared for. The indoor pool and Sauna a nice addition. The continental breakfast better than any of the more expensive hotels, and I didn't have to go to the lobby to work on the Internet. The addition of potted flowers all around outside gave it a European feel. The place was packed every night we stayed there with large families, yet was quiet by ten. Well-run and worth more than the inexpensive price. This gem will be on our return list.

Great deal!

I was in town for one night without my wife and just needed an economical yet clean and comfortable room. The Clarion provided that. Nice clean and quiet property. Comfortable bed and pillows. Adequate ammeneties. For the price, a perfect option in a town like Monterey.

Great room

Very nice room. Large area to move around with a table and two chairs. Bathroom was big and vanity was separate from the shower. Loved the fireplace. Location was good too. Close to attractions and a shopping center and movies.

great experience

This hotel is definitely a good bang for your buck. The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean, and the indoor pool and hot tub were wonderful. It was very convenient that the rooms had a microwave and refrigerator as well. All the rooms have a VCR player, so bring a movie! It's fairly close to fisherman's wharf (about a 15 minute walk). My only complaint would be that the front desk employee wasn't very knowledgeable about the rooms or about the local area.

While you're in the area, visit downtown Carmel which is just minutes away. The shops are charming and there's a beautiful beach at the end of Ocean Ave.

Good for the money

This was a pretty nice little hotel for the money. I ended up upgrading to one of the rooms with a hot tub and that was nice, about $50 more, but worth it. Not exactly the best location, but short drive to cannery row and other major points of interest in Monterey. Would recomend it.
