Real nice hotel.

Had a 6 night stay. The first 2 nights were real bad because my wife and I use a fairly firm mattress and the one we had at first was a pillow mattress. Couldn't stay asleep and the 2nd night we ended up sleeping on the floor. I asked the front desk lady on Friday morning if there was some way to remove the pillow mattress and she said she would look into it. Received a call later that morning informing us that it was not possible to remove the pillowtop but she was trying to get us moved into a room with a firmer mattress. Got a call about an hour later informing us that we needed to return to the hotel as she had been able to move us into a room with a firmer mattress. The rest of our stay was heaven. The mattress was outstanding and we were able to get great nights sleep. The only bad thing about the hotel is that there was no on-sight laundry facility. Other than that it is a great hotel and the staff was wonderful I don't remember the young lady's name who helped us but she was working the front desk on the morning of Friday the 17th of March. She deserves special recognition.

Nice hotel

After a long day of traveling, my husband and I were ready to be in our hotel room. We arrived a bit before check in. We were able to do the paperwork, but our room wasn't ready. We had to wait about an hour or so. We were too tired to do any sightseeing then and we had already eaten so we just waited in the lobby. Once we were able to go up to our room we were pleasantly surprised. It was pretty clean,(there was a couple hairs in the shower) and very spacious. We had the king room. I had read other reviews and requested an upper level room away from the elevators. Vey glad I did. We were on the third floor on the end. Pretty quiet with nice views. The bed was pretty comfortable. We spent 3 nights. The breakfast was so so. It's nice they have something available, but its mostly bread. Toast, waffles, muffins, and prepackaged breakfast sandwiches, cereal, etc. If you're looking for something healthier I'd eat elsewhere. On the first morning I tried a sandwich but found it too salty. My husband said the waffle was good. We would stay here again. Not too far of a drive down to Cannery Row and the wharf. Good location close to freeway too.

Great Location in Monterey

Pros: Very Large Room
Cons: Later Check out
Location: 4-5 mile from aquarium and Fishermans Warf, there is plenty of parking at the attractions $5 per day
Very nice place with great people, near attractions just a short drive. Very clean, all new paint, very big rooms and very comfortable, highly recommended. Good continental breakfast, and yes they have a waffle maker. No eggs or sausage but breakfast sandwich's available for heating which were very good.

Family friendly for sure

Pros: It was clean, the free breakfast was awesome and it was close to restaurants and a drug store.
Cons: I would say having AC as an option for guest's would be great.
Location: Close to Monterey- like a 5 minute drive from the Aquarium and Fisherman's wharf. Dennis the Menace park is close by, the kids loved that.
My family of 5 stayed here for a recent trip to the Aquarium. It was a last minute trip so booking was an issue, this was our first time here. They have a very nice pool/ spa which nobody used except us! The kids loved it. The free breakfast was better than expected- lots of options to choose from. The only issue with that is there are only like 3 tables, so just take your food back to your room! Also, maybe I just failed to see this, but there was NO A/C! It was a bit warmer than we were comfortable with, especially at night, but the front desk provided us with an oscillating fan which made it better. Also, Fremont street is a very, very busy street. we are from the country, so the vehicle noise, and the garbage trucks were bothersome to us. Despite the two very minor issues we had we enjoyed this hotel and would recommend it and probably come back.

A great value!

We loved the hot tub. The pool was a little chilly for the temps outside, and it was right by a street on the other side of the fence. The room was great; the maid service was great.  A little more variety on the breakfast items would have been nice, but what they served was good.

Great price for the money!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
This place was just right for us, the only minus I might probably say is that the breakfast place is rather small. That said, their breakfast offerings were fresh, clean and appetizing. I'll definitely stay here again.

I would definately stay here again.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: not within walking distance to main attractions.
I was impressed with the services that the hotel offers. The "continental" breakfast actually included eggs and sausage along with the standard fair. The staff was helpful in finding local attractions and answering our questions. My one issue was the lateness in which our room was to be cleaned. We came back for a midday nap and our room was not clean. They had retrieved our dirty towels but did not leave any clean ones behind.

Hospitable Staff, Clean Hotel, Wonderful Value!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I had a long weekend planned, and the De Anza Inn came through in a pinch. After reviewing many hotels online in the Monterey area, the De Anza seemed the best fit for my family. It's located on a main road, which makes it easy to locate. You would think the noise from the street would be intrusive, but it's minimal (if at all). The staff was courteous and helpful, just as a great hotel staff should be! The housekeeping did a fine job cleaning our room, even locating and shipping an heirloom watch I had accidentally left during our stay. I enjoyed the light breakfast provided for free by the hotel, especially the egg patty and sausage sandwiches we made. The room we rented for the night was huge, too! Nice new flatscreen tv in the room, a mini fridge, microwave, safe, and a ridiculously comfortable bed. When I make it back to the Monterey area, the De Anza will definitely be at the top of my list.
