Great dog-friendly ocean front room!

Posted Jul 27, 2015
Cons: The rooms could be updated, but they were clean!
This hotel is great because it's right on the beach, it's affordable, dog-friendly, and the staff is great!

Pluses and Minuses

Posted Jul 25, 2015
The ocean views were amazing and the beach access was incredible! The pillows were uncomfortable and the room was stuffy. Also, the room didn't smell fresh and was off putting. For being a fancy hotel, the furniture was old and the general sense of the room that it was run-down. Lastly, the resort fee of $25 wasn't included in Expedia price and it was also taxed (came out to about $28).

Fun in the Sun!

Posted Jul 24, 2015
Pros: I liked the wonderful comfortable lobby with fireplace and ocean view.
Location: Location is excellent...right on the beach.
Great family vacation on the beach. We rode bikes to the Monterey Peninsula and enjoyed all the fun they had to offer: aquarium, shopping, arcade with miniature golf, candied apples and fresh taffy. When we got back to the hotel we spent the evening in the ocean under a wonderful sunset light and at dark started a campfire and roasted marshmallows with the moon glowing over the ocean. Went back to our room at 10:00 pm and slept like happy children.

Beautiful hotel on the beach

Posted Jul 22, 2015
Not the biggest rooms and the bathroom was very small but it was worth it just cause its on the beach. Seen dolphins from our balcony even! I will be staying there again.

Wedged between route 1 and beach.

Posted Jul 22, 2015
Pros: It was on a beautiful beach.
Location: It is a 15 minute drive to Fisherman's Wharf and other attractions in Monterey. There is an aquarium and Cannery Row is filled with shops.
The hotel room was small. We had three people and there wasn't enough room for suitcases and people. It is in need of updating as well. The term resort is misleading.

Nice, right on the beach, easy access.

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Pros: Good restaurant, great views.
Cons: Sitting on the chairs outside looking at the beach would have been great with drink service. You had to shag your drinks.
Location: Action at Cannery Row is a $20.00 cab ride. Easy to get around and worth a little extra with the beach out your door.
Stayed for three nights, very quite and restful.. Food in the restaurant was good, staff was friendly if you chatted with them. Over all worth it!

Great beachfront location, awesome views

Posted Jul 20, 2015
The parking facing rooms are very outdated, like a thing from the 90's with cheesy white wash rattan and old rugs and wall paper.

Great Views!

Posted Jul 19, 2015
Pros: The views were spectacular!
Cons: The Sign
Location: Monterey! need I say more? See the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Great beach front for viewing and relaxing. Wonderful in-house restaurant. The only con is the sign. I hope the new one is coming soon. I do love the new name.

Nice location on the beach

Posted Jul 18, 2015
The rooms are very small and have to much clutter. Room was clean but the beds were not comfortable. All beach resorts that I have been to install granite or marble floors to decrease foot traffic wear, they have carpet causing the room to be more of a 2 star. The location is the only reason I would go back
