Hotel was located in a nice area to where we needed to visit. The lobby was clean and the front desk was friendly. We were in a room on the third floor. Upon entering, we noticed that the window was open, but you would have to be Spider Man to get up to the window to get into our room....

I took my two teenage daughters and 3 year old niece to Monterey and this was one of the best priced hotels in the area. The staff were exceptional and always had a smile on their face whenever I ran into them. This includes everyone from the front desk to house keeping. The breakfast was top notch for the style...

The room itself was overall nice you could see holes in the walls where things have been taken down and replaced with newer lights and decor. Struck me funny that the holes hadn't been patched yet....

this hotel advertised a Jr. suite with a separate seating area with a TV and sofa sleeper. It is really just one big room--no separation between the two areas. Lots of street noise! First thing in the morning only 3 yogurts in the 'fridge, little fresh fruit (only apples), rubbery eggs & only fat-free milk for cereal. The 'fridge with...

This could be a nice hotel. It has a nice Spa and is in a nice location. However, the elevator was out while we stayed there. The hot water ran out the morning we were leaving. And the suites are organized so you have an undivided, but separate bed area and sitting area. Which is good . . . however,...
