Recent reviews

Good 7.4 From 1,668 reviews

Fair 4.0
All about location
The hotel is basically a motel with a view. Fair enough the location is amazing, but the overall condition of the rooms can not justify the price. Heated pool is OK (nothing fancy, really).
Giuseppe, gb1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Great location reasonably priced small rooms
Great location Smart lobby/bar area restaurant overpriced small quantity and choices and the service was poor Rooms are small would have been 5* if bigger but comfortable beds and tidy never the less You could hear the sea and wind as so close to the beach but was tired so slept Pool was warm and kids loved it Didn’t use the gym but looked ok
Damien, gb2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Great location, nice features, rooms little dated
Hotel is in great location and within a few minutes driving to the main sites in Monterey. The public areas are in great shape and design. The rooms are a little dated and too dark for my liking. The is right on the beach and I am sure the outside is very much exposed to the weather and surely difficult to be kept up well. But on the other hand this is the beauty and character of the hotel ... you are right above the beach and can watch seals playing in the waters below you ... We only had one small issue; we had a whale watching tour planned for the morning of our departure and asked for a late check out (1pm instead of 11am) as we felt more comfortable to leave our luggage in the hotel instead of the car at a public parking lot. The lady at reception showed no flexibility. I thought this was unfortunate as it leave a bitter taste ... other than that all was well and we would go back.

Fair 4.0
It should be called Monterey Tired. Our room smelled of animals and there was a dirty old sock left in our room.
Lucy, gb2 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Concrete bunker at state beach
If you are considering a concrete bunker at a state beach a boutique hotel then this is it. The plus point is that you can hear the ocean but only if you are daring to leave the window/ door open and accept that neighbours will peek in. This was fully booked via However, beware that you will also charged an extra resort fee regardless of fully paid or not. Notifying will not change this.
