Stayed here as a cheaper alternative to the expensive hotels in fisherman's wharf as I had stayed in clarion hotels before with no problem. This is nothing like any clarion hotel I ever stayed at before - this is nothing more than a road side motel. Positive It is cheap and a great base for exploring Carmel and monterey. Negative...

Booked the one suite on the premises & decided to switch to a regular room with a whirlpool. When we pulled down the sheets on the bed, we found blood on a pillow, not happy. The bathroom was fine and updated, with the bed just OK. The indoor pool was adequate with a nice hot tub. The breakfast was a...

Upon checking in from a long drive from Las Vegas, room wasn't what is "advertised" on computer!!! So beware! Rooms are NOT what u see! The first night girl accommodated us for a different room w/a kitchen... But this one was in horrible condition for what we pre-paid! I was so upset but so exhausted we decided to just deal...

Staff was fine although not happy to see us. The room was small, dirty, cold and odorous!! The pillows aren't a standard size pillow. We slept on a full size bed although I advised them in advance that someone in the booking party was 6'6" tall. We were too tired to deal with the quality of the room and elected...

The Clarion Hotel in Monterey was very nice. The second bed was in a separate room with a balcony & view of the bay. How nice to be able to look out at the ocean! Breakfast was adequate: the real china & flatware were a plus. Pool was warm & clean with towels available at the desk. The hotel was...

We stayed here as we needed to stay another night in Monterey and our hotel (Portola) had no vacancies. No horror stories to report. It's a reasonable budget hotel. The room felt tired and the breakfast was meagre, but then this is a cheap hotel. I've certainly stayed in a lot better for the same price (we did so that...

I stayed at the Clarion for 2 nights. The first night we paid about $190 for 3 people in a double. We extended our stay for a second night (at $300) to explore more of Monterey. That was a bit overpriced for the quality of the hotel even on a Saturday night. The rooms are clean but just a bit...

My stay at the Clarion Hotel Monterey was a good reminder of what hotels use to be. Although clean and comfortable the age of the hotel showed in a musty odor that was constant. I was impressed by how quite it was and was able to sleep quite well. The continental breakfast was stark but they had Cheerios (my favorite...

We stayed in room 233. It must have been an old owners room. Being a suite, it was very small (I've stayed in larger cruise cabins on cruise ships) and very poor quality for a suite. No air conditioner in room, refridg was warm, light bulb in bathroom burned out, drawer in closet hutch was broke, bed was a queen...

Excellent staff, good rooms, good location. Breakfast is just ok with cereal, juice, oatmeal, biscuits and gravy and waffles. They do have indoor pool but i think it is shared with the neighboring hotel too so expect it to be a little crowded. Noise from outside might keep you up if you are a light sleeper.
