A quick and good-enough stay for a stop over

We were at Monterey for one night, on a lay over from a full day at Big Sur to SFO. Wanted to stay for the indoor pool, which seemed nice, but there were many children playing in it, as was semi-expected; perhaps a great spot for families. The breakfast included was also a nice touch/gesture, though don't expect anything spectacular. Rooms were a little dated. Service was on-point. Shower tub had jets, which was also nice. Free parking and wifi. Really, not the nicest of 4 hotels, but for the price, a very good deal.

The Noodle Bar, about a 15 minute drive from the hotel had some good Vietnamese food.

Short Trip Destination

The room was smaller than anticipated. The staff was friendly, but was not very helpful or knowledgeable. Our room had a coffee maker in it, but there was no creamer available. When we asked the front desk staff, we were advised to take some from the hotel next door since they were owned by the same people. For the price the overall value was not too bad. The hospitality portion of the trip was not up to par.

Motel not a hotel

The room was overpriced for what we got. With the name of a Clarion hotel we expected it to be a hotel and not a motel. The wifi is free but useless because it was so slow.

Good Value, Good Place

What you get: Clean room Good location Pretty quiet Free WIFI Decent Continental Breakfast What you don't get: Generous Parking Bottom line: It's a nice place to stay. The staff was very friendly. Parking can get tight especially at night...so be prepared. It was fine when we were there and would stay again.

Adequate

Location was easy to find and the room, while older was clean and ok. Breakfast was good. Staff was helpful and friendly. We stayed one night as we were traveling and it suited us well for that night.
