Great Deal

Room with a great view. Short walking distance to a lot of places. Why pay higher price in the middle of everything when you can just walk and enjoy Monterey.

Excellent

This is a great hotel. We were fortunate to receive an upgrade to a room with a view of the Bay. The room and bathroom were large and luxurious and the view wonderful and soothing. They also allowed us to keep the car parked when we checked out at no extra charge. We'll gladly stay with them in our next visit to Monterey.

Nice stay

Arrived around 8:00 in the evening and were thrilled to find the restaurant still open. The food is quite good and the menu interesting. Service was very good. The location is wonderful, right on the bay and next to a bird sanctuary. Lots of seals were swimming off shore in the morning. The rooms themselves were a little sparse, perhaps rustic is the best word, but very comfortable and clean.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

This is a great stop over point along the Pacific Coast Highway. It's about a 40 minute drive north to Hearst Castle.
