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

Nice spot to lay your head!

Although a little out of the way in Monterey, the room itself was very comfortable. Perfect for one person to use as a landing spot.

You get what you pay for

First of all, this location does not have a fitness center, contrary to the website, so don't bother lugging your workout stuff. There is plenty of walking and biking to be had in town, so that wasn't an issue as much. The rooms are small, clean but minimal. The smell though... there was a persistent musty smell when I first arrived. I aired out the room a bit, sprayed some perfume, and turned on the fan, which helped. For the price though, it wasn't bad. Breakfast is in a small room, so arrive early if you plan on sitting down. Once you leave the hotel though, it's all great. The location is fantastic-- if you walk downtown, you'll pass many cafes, restaurants, and shopping locations. Cooper Museum store is not to be missed! The Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf, and the Aquarium are just a couple miles away, and it's a very pleasant walk. Lots of things to see! Also, the trail that goes along the beach will take you all the way to Pacific Grove. A lot of gorgeous views and marine life -- otters, seals, pelicans... wonderful.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Near the Aquarium (about 2 miles from the hotel) there is Z Folio Gallery, which sells jewelry, glassworks, some scarves by indie designers. can be pricey, but unique and beautiful.

nice place

Very nice place: the pool looked great, though I did not use it. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast wasn't very good (no eggs, only waffles), very good location.
