Geniale Lage direkt am Strand

Posted Oct 1, 2016
Wir haben im Rahmen einer Biker-Kalifornien-Rundreise in Monterey Station gemacht und das Monterey Tides, a Joie de Vivre Boutique Hotel, für eine Nacht gebucht. Die Zimmer waren sehr ordentlich und die Ausstattung im allgemeinen recht gut. Am Abend haben wir an der Hotelbar einige Drinks zu uns genommen, die Atmosphäre war gut. Auch der Restaurantbereich mit direktem Blick auf den Pazifik, in dem wir das Breakfast zu uns genommen haben, war sehr ordentlich.

Overpriced

Posted Sep 21, 2016
We wanted to stay at a hotel right on the beach this one is right on the beach and you can hear the waves which was very soothing the room was pretty to look at but our room had a little bit of a moldy smell which wasn't pleasant. We checked in late at night and we are only staying one night so I didn't bother to change rooms. I say this hotel is overpriced by about $125.

The room had problems.

Posted Sep 18, 2016
Pros: Being on the beach.
Cons: Room conditions. There were 5 rooms in our party and many of them complained of poorly draining sinks and electric blinds that didn't work.
The toilet tank refilled every 10 seconds. Very annoying at night even with bathroom door closed. The shower stall nearly over flowed during shower. Had guacamole in the bar was horrible all I could taste was lemon. The dinner in the restaurant was very good.

It would be a pleasure to welcome you back and to provide the consistency for which we're more commonly regarded. We hope you'll think of us again in return travels.

Monterey Tides

Posted Sep 17, 2016
This was the most peaceful, clean, and pleasant motel with all amenities and great staff. I will be going back and I highly recommend this motel to anyone that loves the ocean view and sound of the ocean. It was so tranquil waking up to the sound of the ocean and then walking on the beach at 6:00 am. Please take the opportunity to experience this.

Hotel was amazing. Had my own personal issues that day so we got in late. Didn't have time to enjoy the other things that was planned and needed to be at a wedding early the next morning. Staff was so gracious. I will be back to enjoy myself..
