My husband and I just recently celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary. We love Monterey. Every time we go for vacation, we go to Monterey. In short, we went to Monterey for our anniversary. I was choosing between Best Western ($147.00/night at that time) versus Rosedale Inn ($180.00/night at that time). We chose Rosedale for two nights because we thought of giving ourselves a little treat. But when we got to our room, we were both VERY DISAPPOINTED!! Carpet is very dirty, some parts are ripped (falling apart), very poor housekeeping (hairs all over the floor), ants, very old rags and towels, and I can go on and on... That is room 101 (say NO if they try to send you here). We usually don't complain but hey it's our anniversary, we paid $180.00/night, and we got a cheap-motel-like accommodation! My husband complained and we appreciate the front desk being sorry about it and gave us a bottle of wine (which they don't have to do it but we appreciate the effort). We were told that they have remodeled the rooms at the back but not the one we stayed in yet. What a WONDERFUL GIFT (sarcasm) they have for our anniversary to put us in this room than to put us in better ones. Pros: close to the beach, fireplace, nice staff, and jacuzzi.
