We reserved a room with a king bed and fireplace, but the window shades were broken and would not open or close. Because the manager could not repair the shades he decided to upgrade us to one of their junior sweets. Great decision i must say, as he made the right call. His decision left a lasting impression, and we will be back for sure! The room was great. The service was great. The location was convenient, and the courtyard setting was perfect.
If you want to visit Monterey and stay in a hotel that is small, quaint, and located fairly near to the water, Ask for rooms in the courtyard. We were in room 24. But room 26 is the best room.
