Absolutely charming!!

We were greeted by Sonny, who gave us suggestions for dinner and offered us cookies with a smile. Our room was spacious and comfortable,,,,, our sheets, blankets and pillows cozy and clean. The amenities were high quality and the gratis breakfast was a hit.

Such a beautiful hotel!

Older but well appointed hotel with amazing suites! The overall size of the suite was amazing and the fireplace was well appreciated adding to the romantic ambiance. Generous continental breakfasts are a nice touch. The location is perfect for walking to the wharf. Also loved the proximity to Carmel and to the 17 mile scenic drive. This hotel is a MUST in Monterey!

Weekend Getaway

Spent one night at the hotel. Liked the idea of having a fireplace in the room. The room we had was a junior suite. Very spacious room....king size bed, little eating nook...living room with couch and chairs and fireplace. Patio was large, but had high walls and had a large building next to us...so nothing great to look at. The fireplace was awesome and the tv was on a swivel so it could be watched from the bed or the couch. Bathroom had a nice wall in shower, but the sink was outside the "bathroom" which was a little weird...but not a big deal. We enjoyed our stay and the hotel is within walking distance to plenty of restaurants.

Weekend in monterey

The hotel was very nice. It is in a good location. Its in a spanish motif. The only issue we had is that we booked a jr. Suite room and when we arrived the put us in a jr. Suite which was ada ready. We didnt want that and the found us another room in a timely manner. The only draw back is we found it too have thin wall so you got alot of noise. We would go back for sure.

Nice room but noisy people

Rooms were very nice. Walls maybe a little thin. It was nice until midnight and 2am when people returning to their rooms were very loud waking us up.

Nice hotel, if you aren't street side

The hotel room was very nice and comfortable. We were pleased with our room and the cleanliness. The only problem we had was the excessively loud street noise. Our balcony faced the street in front of the hotel and the street noise was extremely loud. I would only stay there again if I could be guaranteed a room that was off the street.
