Lovely hotel walking distance to Historic Monterey

Posted Aug 28, 2016
Pros: The ambiance was wonderful. They had a bar and small restaurant with a sit in and enjoy feel. Breakfast, cocktails and dinner available for extra.
Cons: No elevators in the section our room was in...suitcases up stairs was a bit much. You may want to have luggage carried up and down for you.
Location: Perfect for exploring Historic downtown Monterey where there are lots of restaurants. A bit of a walk to the wharf, but a pleasant one.
We had a wonderful stay. The room was big, the beds comfortable and the ambiance lovely. We had a fireplace in our room which added a romantic touch. If we had known about the happy hour and dinner we would have checked in sooner. Though at additional cost, the looked like a congenial interesting group enjoying the woody atmosphere. Every room has a small refrigerator and a big screen TV. We had the window open and listened to the seagulls in the morning. It is a pleasant walk to several of the historic adobes and a six block or so walk down the main street of Monterey to the wharf with many restaurants along the way. Not the easiest hotel to get to, but little in downtown Monterey, laid out along old donkey trails, is easy to navigate but it is worth the side trip.

Lovely place to stsy

This is the motel concept taken way upscale. Very nice indeed. The interior design and fireplace are very welcoming. My only issue was with the air conditioning which made for very dry air inside the room and had it not been for the patio door to be leading out towards a busy road, the cool air from outside would have been much preferred. A great night sleep became more uncomfortable than needed by trying to find the right balance of cool and quiet. Complimentary water would have gone a long way.

Nice hotel close to Carmel & Big Sur

Pros: Location, size of room
Cons: Breakfast options
Location: Carmel, Big Sur, shopping
Nice hotel close to Carmel & Big Sur. Only some rooms have air conditioning, so have to request in advance. Hotel staff prompt at responding to emails. Breakfast (surcharge) was just okay. Free parking.

Nice, comfortable hotel with a "homey" feel. The restaurant is a nice addition and the food reasonably priced.

Very nice motel.

This place is perfectly fine for a one night stand but has no luxury or outstanding features. The best part was the food--abslolutely delicious dinner and breakfast choices. Ernie was an incredible "Ritz" quality server!
