“A little far from Monterey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

We choose this hotel because we wanted to visit the Monterey area, the hotel was okay for the price we pay. Our room was clean, the breakfast was average, but they actually have a room where you can seat.
The hotel is close to the sea, but there is not really a lot of place to eat or hang out in the area.
We also had the bad surprise to be charged twice for the room, even if we assured when we arrived that we already paid for the room.

The biggest problem with this place is the water and power system. My husband and I can tolerate a hard mattress but cold showers and no power when you are trying to get ready at 6:00 a.m. is ridiculous. We were offered another room to finish getting ready and we accepted that so I could dry my hair. Other than that, we will not stay here again. There is a great restaurant within walking distance - Kula's! and a very nice beach where you can watch the sunset.

The staff here was great. I was traveling with my sister and her husband, and when the front desk found out she was pregnant they made sure we had a room that gave her some privacy and space. The rooms themselves were pretty average for the price point, but the extra space made it well worth it. The hotel is right near the sand dunes, and just a quick drive to downtown Monterey. The only real issue we had was that the refridgerator smelled something awful, so we weren't able to put our food in it. And it stunk up the room for a bit after we opened it. I'd definitely stay here again, but I'd want to make sure they've dealt with the fridge situation first.

Room Tip: Their connecting rooms are great for bigger groups

Staff was friendly and the location is walking distance to a very nice beach. Would stay here again in the future.

We had to leave the hotel we were staying at in Monterey because it was too dirty and the heater broke (I will review that one next). All the hotels were booked up that night in town so we called the main number for choice hotels since we've always had good luck with this chain. We have a 19 year old boy and 10 year. Old girl so it's hard to find a room to accommodate all of us. The front desk receptionist was very nice even though it was almost 2 am when we checked in. We got the king/2 queen suite for $95 which was perfect. The hotel was a little older but it was clean and we'll kept. The beds weren't the softest in the world but we were all so tired we didn't care. The suite was nice because you need a card key to go into each individual room (which is nice with kids). We overslept breakfast but I don't expect continental breakfasts to be anything fancy. The Comfort Inns serve deluxe breakfasts. Quality Inns are a little more simple. We had plenty of air in the rooms with the windows open. It's very close to the beach so it was nice to breathe in some humid air. Overall this hotel saved our trip. We will definitely be returning here with the kids.
