    Not as expected!

    The lobby

    Rooms are not nice at all. The pictures on the website are deceiving. The cleanliness is really awful. When we told all this to the manager, he tried switching us to a different room but we didn't accept as it was exactly the same. At that point the manager told us that we shouldn't expect more from a 3-star hotel. So if you care about your room being clean, and overpaying for an upscale motel, then avoid this hotel.

    Aging again, budget friendly, no surprises.

    Even with a nice veneer, the age of this once run down motel is starting to show through again. Small rooms and an odor from the sewer system. You get what you pay for. Service, usually good, was halting on this visit.

    Location is the best in Monterey. Staff is helpful and courteous.

    They should put foldable beach chairs on the balconies to enjoy the view even more.

    Restaurant Staff

    Terrible wait staff. It was almost like we were inconveniencing them. After we order we don't see them again until the check.

    You don't get what you pay for!

    Clean room, safe door, beach access.

    No pool or jacuzzi as advertised! Construction all over the place! They NEED to lower their prices until they get all the construction done. I wouldn't go their again just because they charge extreme prices and a "resort" fee for something that doesn't exist! Obviously not a place you can trust since they are still charging the same fee while they have ongoing construction that makes it impossible to use the facilities they advertise. Room was clean, comfortable bed, but our "garden view" room literally looked down into boards, saws, tools and half done empty pool. Beach access is really the only reason to go here until they finish their "resort".

    I liked that it was near the water. Most of the staff was very friendly and very helpful. The view from my room was amazing. The bed was comfortable.

    There was construction going on while I was there that was a bit disruptive. The pool and Jacuzzi were closed. They put me under the conference rooms and they got pretty loud during my stay. The fees were higher than stated in my original agreement plus they tax the fees and everything else.

    Great location with wonderful beach access

    Most rooms have 2 comfortable queen beds. Hard to find. Made a reunion of old friends very comfortable. In room Starbucks coffee was quite good. Far better coffee than at most hotels for those of us who need a good cup as soon as we awake.

    Selection of snacks was limited to small vending machine size without many healthy selections. Would like to see healthy and larger sized chips, etc sold in larger sized bags on premise.

    Resort Price for Average Experience

    The hotel is clean. The hotel is the only hotel right off the state beach in that area (which is a short drive outside the downtown area of Monterey). It was nice to be able to walk from my room onto a beach.

    It is way over priced. In addition to the already expensive room price $$$, we were charged an additional mandatory "Resort Fee" of $25/night for the pool, gym, and Internet. In other hotels I've stayed at these are included in the price, not an additional fee. Also, the staff (specifically the front desk staff) were not as nice as you would expect of a "Resort". When we checked in the staff didn't welcome us or anything. She just wanted our reservation & credit card. When we asked questions, she seemed annoyed like we were holding her up from more important things. I felt more like cattle than a guest. Overall, for the price I paid I could of gotten a room in Monterey Bay, close to a Beach in Monterey which in my option has a better view of the water.

    Excellent hotel

    When we first got there the view was stunning. The beach was right there and there were public access points to it, making access to the beach easy. Our room was an ocean view. It had a great feature for windows where there was an automatic screen that could go over it for privacy. The staff were friendly and the room as a whole was very clean and comfy. The place felt like luxury and we thought it would be a lot more for the price. Would definitely recommended it.

    The only problem I noticed was the door stuck a little bit. It was hard for me to open my door to the room. You had to push hard to open it. It also would not close unless you slammed it. That was the only problem I noticed, and I'm surenot eevery door is like that.
