Perfect stay for the night!

Posted Sep 9, 2017
This hotel was really well situated and had great amenities in terms of parking and breakfast. I would definitely recommend it. Although the breakfast was only continental, everything was excellent quality and very fresh. Pastries, bagels (really good!), hard boiled eggs, fruit selection and muffins. The room was amazing - really spacious with everything you might need. The only downside was the lack of a/c but they provide a fan so we used that during the night. It was fairly noisy but we were so jetlagged that we slept through it. The front doors are a little rickety and seems like someone could just break in quite easily but there were triple locks and we had no problems. Overall a great stay and the best shower I've had since we started our trip!! Thanks Merritt!

Monterey Comfort

Posted Aug 29, 2017
The staff was more than helpful. The room was very nicely decorated, comfortable and great beds. Walking distance to the wharf and central to many places like17 mile drive and the lighthouse. Very enjoyable stay. We will go back!

Comfort at the heart of Monterey

Posted Aug 20, 2017
The simple but clean, comfortable hotel is located at the heart of Monterey close to its main attractions. The rooms are ample and well decorated, staff is friendly and we really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast.

Adequate accommodations close to warf

Posted Jun 30, 2017
Room was clean but needs maintenance and updating (esp bathroom). Check in was good but the clerk should have known more about the area. He didn't know anything about whale watching (Monterey has world-class whale watching) but recommended a good restaurant. The tiles on the fireplace were broken and the bathroom needs a complete overhaul and upgrade (esp for the price). I felt like I was in a place built in the 1950s.

Able to park the car and walk to all attractions. Aquarium and cannery row.. about a 15 min walk and 5 minutes from some fun restaurants and bars downtown. Great room, clean, good breakfast to start the day!

Parking sucks!!!

Thank you for staying with us. We understand the frustration of our parking situation. There is not much that can be done about it as we are in the downtown area with other buildings around us. We hope that you consider us again for future stays in the Monterey area.
