"Very good customer service."
Check in was quick and easy. The staff had our luggage moved to our room and our car parked for us in no time. The rooms are great with a good view of either cannery row or the ocean. We prefer the street side to watch the passing people. Fireplace, bay window and complementary dvd player all on hand. Good breakfast and wine and cheese in the evening that you can eat on the roof-top garden overlooking the ocean. Easy location for walking to good restaurants and right up the street from the aquarium. We will definitely stay there again.

Unscripted Monterey Bay

2600 Sand Dunes Dr, Monterey 93940 - Map
"Nice hotel, close to beach and freeway"
Monterey Beach Resort, since renamed "Unscripted", was a standard large resort hotel right on the beachfront just outside of Monterey. Though the location on the beach was stunning, and allowed us to walk out the door for a sunset stroll, there was little warning of how close the freeway is behind the hotel. We weren't sure if we could hear cars or the waves sometimes! However, the rooms were very large and comfortable with a huge TV and great beds. The shower room was great and the overall stay was very pleasant. Beware of the $20 per day parking charge, and that you have to drive out into Monterey to find things like the aquarium and dinner. Though the hotel's 4th floor breakfast bar was very tastefully decorated, had delicious food and had great views!

"nice location and environment, but overall it's ok"
The location is very nice - close to beach, quiet and comfortable environment. However, for more than $200 per night (tax included), the room is small, no TV, no breakfast.

Hotel Paradox

611 Ocean St, Santa Cruz 95060 - Map
"Nice Hotel, Nice Location, Cramped Room"
The hotel itself was nice and newly updated. The design and architecture is pretty cool and they've done a good job at turning what appears to be an old motel into a newly update place. The only real complain that I have was that the room was super cramped and did not offer much privacy. The bedroom was about the size and shape of an old style dorm room (straight up rectangle) with the bathroom being directly adjacent to the bed. The bedroom/bed and the bathroom was separated by a barn-style sliding door... which did not actually close just blocked the view from the bed into the bathroom. (This is where the designer chose form over function for you fellow engineers out there) There were wide gaps on all side of the door, so whatever was happening in the bathroom translated perfectly into the bedroom. You get the picture. That being said, the staff was friendly and helpful and allowed us to check out an hour later than normal. Maybe it was just the style of room we purchased, but given that there was a stead stream of people walking from the rooms into the lobby to use the bathrooms there, I have a feeling all of the rooms were similar to ours.

"I would do it again!"
My husband and I stayed two nights for our 25th anniversary. The room was comfortable and had a small microwave and refrigerator. I loved the location, close to beaches, wharf, boardwalk, and shops. We have three kids, even though we did not bring them, duh, this place is very family friendly. Keep in mind that in our room, it did not have a bathtub. The shower was very nice and big. I had stayed here twice before in the 1990's, it has changed owners and the improvements are great.
