Beautiful hotel right in the heart of downtown Monterey. Portola is located in a perfect location to go exploring. The room was very nice and all the staff are extremely helpful. Would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone.
Great dog friendly hotel and price. Great location walking distance to wharf and downtown. Clean and large room and lively lobby with fur babies everywhere - even pet friendly restaurant. Highly recommend- we’ll definitely return.
Naiomi was super helpful in suggesting local places to hang out. We ultimately chose Peter B's Brew Pub right at the hotel and Miguel was attentive, accurate, and beyond courteous! We'll definitely be back!
After mistakenly driving PCH 1 my first time from a perfect sunset in Cambria to Monterey (105 mi.) and the now laughable 3 hour anxiety attack, Portola was the oasis we needed. Room service with excellent food. Fresh robes in the room. Comfy clean fluffy bedding. Perfect. …
Yummy warm cookie to start Good value Great service Loved peter b’s brewhouse Great location to walk to the wharf Jacks was convenient for a nice drink by the fire Breakfast at the club was yummy and great atmosphere
"get a room on a higher floor"
"East-facing rooms have a harbor view. Side buildings have less view."
"Take a tower ocean view room A few more dollars, but nice view"
"Avoid rooms by the pool - aka not the main building, you have to cross a public shopping center to get to them."
"High floors with Marina views"
