Beautiful hotel! I loved how close it is to the bike path, restaurants and beach!

Perfect location, well appointed rooms and welcoming staff. Will stay again!

Music playing in the courtyard past 10pm.

high price

IT's the place to stay for Monterey Jazz fest. A little pricey but so convenient for the music!

Dining options not available for room service

The hotel is nice and clean, the staff very friendly, but unfortunately, we got assigned an unfortunate room # 627, we had to change out of at 1:30AM, due to air ducting noise that wouldn't let us sleep. #627 has a main vent inlet on the balcony, so you can't open the door for fresh air, at which point the noise of the air duct that runs across the ceiling literally vibrates the room, hence, won't let you find peace again. At close $400, that's too much to accept. the new room, a suite #300, had no window, hence no fresh air and the sliding door opened to the courtyard, but couldn't be locked, anther safety short-coming for a peace of mind.

Great experience and nice little getaway.

I would stay there again on my next visit.

Great location and they are remodeling so your experience is going to be even better.

Small place window outlooking was not great. wifi did not work, and heater did not work until we called the service guy to fix it.

Liked the proximity to everything and the dog friendly establishments. Only thing that could be better is if there was a “green patch” or designated dog area on the hotel grounds or nearby

Beautiful room and service. Ease of check-in, valet service
