1. When we arrived, the toilet seat was so loose it had to be fixed -- but that didn't occur until our second day. 2. Starting with our arrival, the telephone didn't work at all -- but couldn't be fixed until after we had left. 3. On our first day, we left our room (204) at 2: 25 PM, while 202 and 203 were being cleaned.-- placing the "Maid Service Required" notice on the door handle. We were astonished to find that when we returned at 10:30 PM, our room had not been cleaned. The manager's explanation that one employee had signed off at 2:30 PM, and the person on the next shift didn't have our room on her roster, mad no sense at all.

Very accommodating hotel .

Pros: Great renovations of the room , very clean room, and staff was very accommodating.
Cons: Keep renovating the outside.
Location: Nice shopping area is close by .
When we first pulled into the hotel, wasn’t real sure because of the age of the facilities. But once inside the room, everything was great. Great renovations of the room made it worth the price. The staff was very very accommodating. Very clean rooms and comfortable bed.

Ok but nothing special

Pros: Location to Marina and Monterey
Cons: Maintenance and Continental breakfast.
Location: Close to Monterey
Maintenance was poor. A hairdryer that I had to hold on, for my wife to dry her hair. Continental breakfast was coffee or tea. Window latch falling off. People were pleasant, no paperwork for check in and check out. All in all it was simply ok, but for paying over a hundred dollars per night I wasn’t impressed.

Decent, Affordable Room

Pros: Wood shutters/blinds in the room gave a classy feel. Spacious bathroom.
Cons: Put more hangers in closet. Add more towel racks and clothing hooks to the bathroom.
Location: Located between 2 parallel commercial streets in Seaside. Not particularly attractive area. Well rated restaurant nearby, for lunch and dinner.
Clean, comfortable room with king bed, but small. One chair and table, tiny closet with limited number of hangers.
