the staff was not nice in the front office and during breakfast people got yelled at..
i booked a king bed and they gave me a queen bed. the reason i booked the hotel was for the heated pool. the water was cold and they refuse to turn on the heater.
Only did a quick stop here arrived late at night and left early in the morning. But for the price it was perfect and comfortable and I really enjoyed my stay there.
The staff were a little funny on check in. Smiling once in a while wouldn't hurt
The place is great- nice room, very easy access to car parking. You can literally park just outside your room which helps with the suitcases. Clean and smells nice.
We felt good accommodated. Nice clean rooms with comfortable beds. Extended breakfast for US :-)
The staff "the lady at the front" was grumpy and always seemed put off!
Guy at the Reception not too friendly. Hallway was dirty. Someone threw up on the stairs and it was left there to dry.

Pool was not heated.
The rooms were great.
Was given key and room was not ready when I got there. Front counter did not tell me and young lady was not friendly or apologetic. .ignored it until I complained and acted like I was an inconvenience. We had been on road for over 4 hours.Couldn't get breakfast without waiting 20 minutes Was too small out of control. Second day no milk.Had to leave and spend more money on breakfast. Also carpet was wet from cleaning and the cleaning smell way too strong . Parking was not great either. No towels at pool for quest so you have to keep using your own.
Clean and comfortable. Free WiFi (although spotty) semi indoor pool for kids.
The pool was cloudy - should have been closed (I'm a former Certified Pool Operator). I think people should sign up for breakfast time - it was so crowded people couldn't sit down!
I liked the location so close to downtown Monterey but far enough so it wasn't too crowded. Nice room, comfortable bed, nice bathroom.
Our expectations were beyond met with out stay here. I traveled with my four year old children and husband and we were very pleased. Great location close to the Montery Bay Aquarium that was minutes away. The hotel room we stayed in was the king bed room and the bed was comfortable and room was clean. We liked the mini fridge for our drinks and the microwave for our leftovers from dinner. The indoor pool was great and clean. And the breakfast was a win. Thank you! Great staff.
I like that breakfast was included, however one morning they had run out of waffle batter, fruit, pastries, and boiled eggs ( basically everything was out but yogurt and cereal and the milk was out too) It was about 10 minutes left and the guy said he couldn't refill. I think if you say you'll have breakfast you should ensure the late risers get breakfast toi within the window you advertise. That was my only complaint really.
We stayed in a two queen room and the beds were very comfortable, ample pillows. The rooms were nicely appointed with marble countertop, flat screen tv. I liked that breakfast was included and the close proximity to Monterey and surrounding areas.
Water temp in pool was too cold. I researched all hotels to find indoor heated pool so my son could play but he didn't last more than 10 min... And it was def too cold for me, I only went in once briefly.
Continental breakfast did my kiddo!
Location of rooms was next to a dance club. Loud pounding music till 2am every night. Manager acted like it was the first he had heard of this problem.
The beds were ok.
Our feet turned black from walking barefoot in the room. Our room was next to noisy staircase. Fitted sheet kept coming off bed.
The heated pool was awesome for the kids.
One bed was to soft and the other to firm.
Staff was very helpful. Room and property was very clean and nicely updated for being a motel.
Coffee machine not working, told someone would be over to fix it but nobody turned up. Lack of blankets on bed and no spares in closet, spent a cold night.
Very noisy neighbors on both sides (all night long). Pool was not heated. Not enough parking--if you leave, someone takes your space and you have to park somewhere not even close to your room.
We have chosen this hotel since they have a heated indoor pool, we have found it nice for the kids. Unfortunately the "indoor" was not quite "indoor" - only not fully closed roof over a regular outdoor pool. Heating did not work, our kids needed to leave the pool after 5 minutes of swimming. Breakfast area is very small, you need to queue, fight for a free table etc. Horrible experience. In general not a good value for money, you can find two times cheaper hotels in this area with the same value.
overall stay was good just wish the pool was open earlier and later than it was. One of the main reasons we chose this hotel was because of the pooL, but it did not open until nine and closed at nine.
My room was large with 2 queen beds, had lots of room to move around. Enjoyed the calm colors of my room.
The cleanliness of the rooms and the comfort of the beds.
night staff was obviously asleep until someone needed them. Then they provided " I wanna get back to sleep" service. lol My wife doesn't want to stay there again, but I don't mind.
Charged us beforehand, and when we raised this the manager was incredibly rude and insisted this was their right. Breakfast was sub-standard compared to other hotels of similar price.
Room was comfortable and clean. Well located on main road.
