Older, but nicely fixed up hotel, that not long ago was sold to Joie de Vivre chain. The rooms are very small, but functional. Nicely updated tiny bathroom with a bathtub and tiles. Fluffy towels.The contemporary looking vanity is outside with a tiny closet. They offer bathrobes. The pool has been moved to the east of the building. It used...

Excellent location on the beach and great views .You can sleep with the sounds of the ocean. Good customer service. Rooms are OK and comfortable beds.. Bathrooms are small an could had been better remodel...but are OK anyway. Nice common areas with a lot of space for seating and ocean views o the reception floor. Get rooms with ocean views......

This was a price-performer. It was right off the highway (but quiet), convenient to Monterey without the costs, and with a view of the ocean that couldn't be matched no matter how much you spent. The rooms were ordinary, but who cared, the views made it worth it. A lovely open lounge, and definitely kid-friendly.

This hotel is situated right on the beach. Rooms are comfortable and have a good use of limited space Staff very friendly, especially the bar staff. We enjoyed our stay very much. It is good value for money. Dining room has great views over the ocean.

What a beautiful location for a honeymoon hotel! We had the most relaxing holiday at Monterey tides, walks along the beach in the day and falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The view as you look out of your room is so beautiful. And sitting in the bar at night looking out to the sea is just breathtaking....

This review could have been a 1 rating if it wasn't for the work of one staff member (Charles) who saved the day. We booked into a Deluxe Ocean View Room for our honeymoon. Check in was slow but it was busy so no issues there. The $25 for parking was a bit of a smack in the face but...

Attractive building on ocean with sweeping views, but hospitality and customer service are not spoken here. Attending weekend retreat, we booked approx. 25 rooms + ate in their restaurants. Being kind to guests is good for business and good business practice. Extra $15 daily room charge for 'services' (unknown what services). King bed with only 1 bedside reading lamp (wall...
