Customer areas were nicely developed and maintained. Rooms were poorly lit, damaged old carpet, shower head hanging loose, holes in sheets, no extra blankets. We found the rooms very unkept and old.

Location to Monterey was very convenient. Ocean view excellent. Property needs major overhaul. Our toilet overflowed. Another person in our party had to be moved because of water leaking. Charging for parking is ridiculous. Fees and taxes are high and an extra expense.
