The location is wonderful if you want to be right on the beach. Rooms are simple but clean. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pits, walks on the beach. We ate in the restaurant as we wanted to just enjoy the location. My only suggestion is have free coffee in the lobby. The coffee was $5 and not good.

The room was very small and underwhelming. It felt very crowded for a family of four. Everything was super expensive! They charge you for everything, and a extra resort fee for everyday on top of the room fee and parking. I will book elsewhere when coming to Monterey.i rather stay at a 5 star hotel and actually have the luxury.

The water main pipe broken and we didn’t have water for showers or toilets for 6 hours. The bedding was filthy and housekeeping said it’s that way because they’re near the ocean. Teenage girls were running the hallway and screaming until 2am. Pretty much the worse hotel experience ever!!

Liked: Amenities
I thought being right on the beach was a unique opportunity because we didn't have to drive around to find a beach and we had our two young grand daughters with us. They love the beach and they love the pool. I felt that the property badly needs updating. The lobby is fabulous but the rooms are totally not what I was expecting. Our room, which was not what I paid for, had this weird smell and it constantly felt damp. We had to leave the door open during the day to get fresh air. It was loud and people partying and throwing up around our room. I probably will pick another option next time we stay in Monterey.
