Easy access to room from parking lot was nice. However, my husband being a light sleeper said he kept waking up in the middle of the night since he can hear everything outside the room. Overall though we are happy with our stay here.

Check- in was fast. But they declined to state they require a $50 deposit (Convenience fee). So when I saw the total wasn't adding up, I wasted about 20 minutes on the phone with the hotel staff trying to figure out why my total was more than what I was quoted through travelocity. The property manager had to call me and explain why it was more. I did tell them they needed to disclose that as you check-in. The breakfast was far below standard. You received a granola bar, small muffin, milk/coffee (In a bag). I understand due to covid-19. Cleanliness was good. For the price in Seaside/Monterey was good. Close to everything. Beds are comfy. Lots of restaurants around to chose from. Great location!
