Better than anticipated

A little older looking from the outside, the interiors are updated and quite nice. It's conveniently located up the road from the historic downtown (a quick drive or long walk) but with little noise from traffic. Breakfast is minimal. Still not a bad place.

remarkably nice for a two-star

While the room was pretty tiny (I think they call it "efficient" in the business), it was quite clean and remarkably nice for a hotel in this price class. The towels weren't fancy linen, but they were good size and not threadbare. Carpet was clean enough that I didn't feel the need to wear slippers all the time. And the staff was very friendly. A nice change from the other bargain dives I've stayed at in Monterey.

Just fine

Quick stay and pleasant but .... Would have preferred a pool and open feeling rather than its quaintness. You overlooked a parking lot and intersection. Not much outside ambiance. Rooms were fine. Clean. Nice beds and pillows

Good place for a stay

Good room and ok breakfast. The breakfast location is a bit small, but hey how much space do need to eat a bagel and grab a coffee. Monterey centre is just a short drive from there. Personell is great. The owner was very helpful when our "lost luggage" arrived from the airline. Thanks!

Great Location, Subpar Room

The staff could not have been nicer. They helped us to check in a few hours early because we were traveling with a young infant. The room was pretty bad though. Not dirty, just old and crummy. It is a shame that $150 only gets you a room like that, but that's downtown Monterey for you, I guess. Also, the sound of people walking upstairs was incredibly loud. I have never stayed in a hotel with such bad sound conduction between the stories.

Nice spot close to everything

This hotel was very just ok for me. It was clean which is always a plus. It's hard to find a good price for a nice hotel these days. The major positive of this place is that they had a mini refrigerator and a microwave in the room, I thought that was a nice though. I would say the water pressure was weak but that normal for hotels. All in all it was just ok for me. Nothing really set it over the top but I would go back because I know it is clean.

Convenient & Great Value for money

We got a great deal and the hotel was in a very convenient location, walkable to the Del Monte Plaza that has lot of restaurants and cinema as well if you wanted to catch a movie at night. Big Sur is just 30 mins away and it is reasonably close to the wharf and downtown. We stayed there only for one night and I have no complaints at all.

Nothing fancy

The hotel room is not that fancy and is small. You can hear the neighbors walking and top floor people using restroom, shower noise which was all annoying. Not worth the price. But it's a good location, minutes access to 17 mile drive, fishermans wharf.
