On the road
Convenient for harbour and local restaurants. Hotel is fairly basic, but clean and good service
Deborah, gb1 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic stay!!
Great hotel! Our room was beautiful with a log fire and big comfy bed. Loads of space in the room, off road parking and really close to the harbour! Jason in particular was really friendly and helpful which made our stay ever better! One of the best hotels we stayed in on our two week travel across California
Lucy, gb2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
The hotel suited our needs for a night. Everyone was very helpful
Sandra, gbRomance trip
Good 6.0
Disappointed - not as advertised
Overall disappointed - room decor was very outdated and looked nothing as advertised, mold in the shower, ants crawling on the bathroom vanity, no fire log in the fireplace, 3 attempts to contact the front desk after-hours throughout our stay with no avail (phone line went straight to voicemail), and very limited parking with small spots. However, the courtyard was attractive and quiet and morning front desk attendant was very friendly and hospitable. As this was my partner’s first time in Monterey and I was excited to treat them to a fun weekend on the town, this was not the first impression I wanted to make.
