    Best kept secret in Monterey. Excellent value for the money. Clean, comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. The heated pool was a big plus, for us and the grandkids. We will definitely book for return visits to Monterey.

    Pool closes at 9 p.m. It is probably open while it rains, but you can call and ask. The pool is not completely indoors. One of the sides is open to an outdoor patio.
