Got this room last minute via Hotwire to come down a day earlier than planned for the ATT Pebble Beach Pro-Am. I think the only pleasant thing I can say is the location is convenient ... near Hwy 1 and Del Monte Center. The bed was clearly in need of replacement ... the floors are so gross ... cold ugly...

I booked my stay for August 2017 online. Received email confirmation of booking and then today 12/12/16 I receive email stating booking cancelled. I put this down to them charging me the wrong price and then realising. Very rude email when I questioned it telling me to find alternative accommodation. Avoid at all costs

Want a place too stay that was close to Laguna Seca. Right across from the Del Monte Sopping Center. And only a few mins from Livers point and Cannery Row. A bit older but very well taken care of and clean. Parking is very tight. But very quiet and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

We spent two nights in a room with a large king bed, TV, air conditioning and fridge. The bed was comfortable and the room had a nice warm and cosy feel about it. The bathroom layout was strange as the toilet and shower/bath were behind a door but the sink was in the bedroom. There was plenty of parking. The...

Arrived to find an empty office and a phone with a sign saying call for help. Sour-Faced man came to the desk and announced to me that he was fully booked for this evening. He was none too nice about it and I asked why several websites said there were 4-5 rooms still available. He said they were wrong. I...

Stayed here for one night. The hotel is quaint on the outside and very welcoming. The room we had was perfectly adequate, so I'm unsure about those claiming the rooms are too small. Like others have said I don't agree with the $10 service charge, but it is shown before you book so it's not secret. The room was spotlessly...

We decided to give this place a try after reading mixed reviews. First off this place is tiny, cramped, and uncomfortable. Our fridge didn't work for the first day, actually still waiting for them to fix or replace. It is a difficult task to get into the bathroom as the door barley clears the toilet, I bumped my shin twice....

Liked: nice room design, average rates, clean room and bathroom, room is well equipped with AC, TV, fridge, clock, the furniture and textiles are nice to look at and nice to touch. The bed is huge! Did not like: service charge of 10$ is written as a fine print on the reservation, what is the service that we paid for...
