Booming bass through the wall as next to a bar/nightclub Unfriendly staff Crowded breakfast Poor location
Enjoyed our stay. Was located close to everything, facility was clean, the continental breakfast was good, very clean and everyone helpful. Will recommend .
good value as compared to others at the same location. bus shuttles available to city center
no clear indication how city shuttles work. walking distance:,denny's, pizza place, quiet bar, adult book store
Exceptionally well maintained older-style hotel. Chocolate chip cookies at check-in. Nice breakfast. Good pool. Convenient location to many restaurants.
Neighborhood was a tad dodgy, but we felt safe on the property.
Great location; clean room
Front desk did not understand "full service" and importance on a major weekend in Monterey (Pebble Beach); difficult to take and understand directions; A/C unit did not cool; lightswitch in bathroom worked when it wanted
Covenient location by hwy 1.
Location and clean.
It feels like the hotel is abandoned, the young staff seemed bored and tired, asked questions and they simply show where the promotion leaflets are. Poor breakfast, nobody cleaning in between, cereal dropped on the floor, etc.
The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was varied.
Tiny thin towels
We liked the pool. We had it to ourselves for a couple hours, which was very nice. The room was clean and comfortable.
The plumbing leaked in the sink, leaving a pool of water on the floor every time we washed our hands, brushed teeth, etc. And it was VERY EXPENSIVE for the value, although given the options in the area it was comparatively reasonable.
Spotless,well-appointed rooms. Very comfortable stay.
I was traveling alone with 4 children and was very comfortable in the surroundings. The room was clean, beds were comfy, and felt secure.
Very clean and comfortable. Great size. Easy to find. Many restaurants close.
Free continental breakfast wasn't the best. Tried to access it 2 of our 3 mornings. Poorly stocked, area too crowded and congested. Not enough food for the amount of guests. If you offer a "free breakfast" it should be entirely stocked for the full 3 available hours.
Room was clean, carpet was very, very dirty.
Comfortable large room
Wi Fi was no good which is important when travelling, vending machine was empty.
Clean, friendly hotel, with a nice, indoor pool, laundry facility, and very accommodating staff. Nice breakfast room.
Dishes in the in-room kitchenette could have been cleaner.
The rooms were nice. The property was very inviting. House keeping was amazing. Would definitely recommend and stay here again. Also the young lady at the front desk was really sweet and helpful.
Enough space for a family of five. Sofa bed comfy enough and main beds very good. Great bathroom. Kids enjoyed pool. Breakfast was enough to start the day and the "make your own waffles" machine was a real hit with our family!!
No space to eat breakfast as very limited number of tables.
The very nice greeting and good professional servie from the young lady at the front desk. Free breakfast and WiFi and Location plus plenty of pillows.
Not enough towels. The price. It cost us over $600.00 for the 2 nights in the Jr Suite. Before heading into the festival, I stopped at my truck to change my grandson's diaper, and was walking over to throw it into the trash can in the parking lot and was questioned if I was a guest or not and what room number was I in, over 1 diaper. Yes I was a guest who paid over $600.00 bucks for 2 nights. I should be able to throw something in the trash can.
Hotel staffs are friendly.
Room is too small and the price is way high as 5 stars hotels. The drawer under the desk is dirty inside. No smoking room with ash tray right outside the room.
The tile floor was nice.
It didn't have a functional kitchen, and the floors were so dirty that when you walked across them your feet were black.
Breakfast was good
The rooms were very nice, clean and spacious. The staff was helpful and very cheerful!
One of our rooms had new carpet, and while we appreciated that, the acrid smell was the first thing that hit us when we opened the door. The continental breakfast was nice, but the room was so crowded that it made getting breakfast quite a chore! Parking was inadequate - there was not enough room to easily get my car in and out of the lot without backing in and out several times.
Close to fairgrounds Recently refurbished Walking distance to restaurants and drug store Nice continental breakfast
Not to most comfortable bed Shutters instead of curtains (we like to have it as dark as possible in the room and with shutters you have light coming through)
Fine clean motel as good location close to highway and fishermanswharf. Fair price, We had 1 bedroom with 3 double beds -excellent for family of 5 Clean beds and fresh towels and clean bathroom. Nice looking windowblinds
Wifi not very quick
Very kind hospitable lady clerk at desk. Easy to find location near to restaurants, warf, parks and beach. Peaceful stay. Pretty king size bed, good look of furniture, flat screen tv, convenient microwave & mini fridge. Really lovely new modeled bathroom. My favorite feature is the cozy cool sheet covers, pillows nd marvelous AC! Breakfast is delicious, love their pastries! Wish we used the pool, looked super family friendly and clean. Next time
Dirty carpet. Carpet turned our feet black. Even after showering our feet turned black with dirt from walking around inside our room. It was annoying to need to wipe our feet with baby wipes each time before going on the bed. New carpets are needed just as other reviewers have also complained.
