I've stayed here before and I'm glad I was able to get a room here again. The staff are super friendly and the room is very clean. This Howard Johnson is very welcoming and there's even cookies available upon checking in. The price was very affordable and it's only 5-10 minutes away from Monterey. The continental breakfast is great. They offer a wonderful variety of breakfast items, way better than many motels and hotels that I've been to. Next time I go back to Monterey, this Howard Johnson in marina will be my first choice!

We stayed here because we were looking at schools for our daughter. It's very close to CSUMB and about 30 - 40 minutes to UC Santa Cruz. Also, about 20 minutes to Monterey. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Nice breakfast but the area it is held is kind of cramped. Staff was very nice. We would definitely stay here again.

I love the Sanctuary Beach Resort.; it is one of the most beautiful resorts I have ever visited. You will love this place if you love the outdoors. I have stayed there several times and really enjoyed myself. However, on my last visit I noted that some of the suites could use some refurbishing. My suite was not as clean as it had been in the past and the rug sure needed to be cleaned. Could be that they were overbooked and not prepared for the crowd. I say that because I stayed at this resort in March of this year and my room was just perfect.

The Hotel was people friendly and comfortable. Check-in was fast and easy. The staff was also friendly and pleasant. They were both helpful and knowledgeable of the immediate area.
The amenities were basic, but necessary. Coffee machine, small refrigerator unit and a microwave. There was a flat screen T.V., with a DVD player thrown into the mix. If You didn't bring any DVD movies. There's a 7-Eleven right across the street. where rentals can be purchased.

The Pacific Ocean, a small airport, and California State University at Monterey Bay border this community just north of Monterey. Marina Dunes State Beach is popular for hang gliding, sunbathing, kite-flying, and hiking over 70-foot sand dunes. Fishing and pleasure craft dot the harbor. Marina Dunes Preserve, just north of the beach, offers beaches and dunes reclaimed from a former sand mine.
