Stay in Monterey

Would recommend Wed, Sep 9, 2015
This hotel was conveniently located in Monterey and was within a short walking distance to Old Fisherman's Wharf where there are quite a few great restaurants as well as about a 2 mile distance to the aquarium and other attractions like the Bubba Gump restaurant. The room was very nice and had a balcony, although the balcony we had backed up to the balconies from other rooms, but it was definitely a nice outdoor space. It took a bit of time to wind through the various hallways to get to our room but for us wasn't that big of a deal. This hotel definitely met our expectations and provided a lovely stay while we were in Monterey.

Was very pleased with the location of the hotel. Its conveniently located near downtown and main attractions. Starbucks right across the street as well as multiple restaurants around the pier. Rooms are nicely decorated and spacious. Hotel offers both self and valet parking. Will definitely come back on the next visit.

Staycation

Would not recommend Fri, Jul 24, 2015
This hotel is definitely over priced. We did valet parking b/c it's only $3 more per day. Stayed on the third floor which required us walking outside through a courtyard to get to our room. To get to the ice machine we again had to walk outside. Not something I wanted to do in the middle of the night. We didn't get maid service. When I called guest services to inquire why the asked, 'do you need clean towels?' That's not the point! Isn't maid service included in a 4 star stay?!? Our patio didn't include a view. The bed was super comfy. The room service was delicious & delivered pretty fast. The breakfast buffet at the in-house restaurant Jack's was amazing. I would only stay here again if they lowered their prices significantly. Make sure you ask for a room that you don't have to walk outside to get too.

It is in the heart of the bay in walking distance to every amenity and has everything for a great stay. I can well recommend it. Great hotel!

Weekend Getaway

Would recommend Sun, May 10, 2015
We were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful full service hotel and room that awaited us. Not only was it a wonderful stay but the location could not be better. It was in the center of all the activities we enjoy like the Monterey Pier, the downtown area, the walking path on the waterfront and Plaza. We enjoyed a festival in the plaza as well. We would stay there again anytime!

Nice hotel

Would recommend Sat, Jan 24, 2015
Nice hotel in a good location. Far enough away from the tourist traps of Monterey, but they are still convenient to get to via the free shuttles or a short walk.

Dining

Alvarado Street Brewery is a couple minute walk. Great food and beer. There is also a decent brewery in the hotel.
