The property was in a nice spot. the outside is clean and the inside is clean. The rooms are very clean and kept. the bed was new and really comfortable. we slept like babies. However there are some signs that the property is falling apart. When we arrived the elevator had just broken down. We had to take a room on the first floor. the room number plaque was a piece of paper with the number on it. there were a few rooms with a paper identifying the room number. And then the ice machine on the first floor was broken. We would have to go to the 3rd floor, but the elevator was broken. We had to use the stairs.

The hotel is being renovated so the entire building had scaffolding around it. The lobby and surrounding rooms and walls were also under construction so it is understandable that the tile floor throughout the lobby, the elevator bank's floor and the common walkways were very dirty. Our stay was also over the Christmas holiday so much of the staff and workers were not on duty. This was the only issue. The staff was courteous and very helpful. Our room was large, spacious and clean.

The hotel overall was ok. For $270 a night I expected better. The staff were friendly and the room was very clean and comfortable which is why the stay wasn’t bad. Check in was about 25 minutes because our room wasn’t ready. The hotel was undergoing a major renovation which meant construction all day long and the place looked trashed - I wish I would have been warned. Walking throughout the hotel meant squeezing by construction workers. There was extremely loud construction noise early in the morning and lasted until night time which was super annoying. Also, the pool is extremely loud, I could hear it from the top floor. Breakfast was nothing special. It is very close to Marina State Beach which was pretty cool. About 15 minutes from Monterrey. For the price, I would stay elsewhere next time.

Great Price, Greater Location

Pros: The size of the rooms, the fresh baked cookies in the afternoon and the breakfast selections. Free access to the Business Center
Cons: Please fix the wall paper ASAP. It was peeling in some area's. Designated parking for check-in would be nice. The bed was a bit hard, for my hubby.
Location: The location was perfect! It was easy to get to all of the places that we wanted to visit in Monterey, Carmel, Seaside, Marina and Salinas.
Overall, we had a great experience. Upon our arrival, we were told that the hot tub was not working but that it would be fixed by the next morning (we arrived after 10 p.m.). It was repaired as promised. On our next to the last day of our trip, we left the hotel at about 10 a.m. and returned at 4 p.m. to change clothes. Our room had not been cleaned. We were told that they were down to just 3 housekeeping staff. They got our room ready within a half an hour. I was impressed by the front desk staff as to how they handled the situation as they had several people checking in that were not able to go directly to their rooms.
