“Great staff especially Ahmed.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

Ahmed was one the best things the hotel had to offer. He would carry everyone's luggage up 4 floors! Very loud street noise. No elevator. Breakfast was ok. Top floor haunted or something.

great location - its just over one block to the conference center and walking path. Very cute/clean boutique hotel. The continental breakfast was an added convenience, comfy beds and earplugs provided in case a snorer stays next door.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

We purchased two nights using Travel Zoo special. We were surprised by the lack of an elevator, but were told it was "historic" and could not work (not sure how it passes the ADA).

Carpets were quite dirty in public areas. Some stairs were literally unsafe as the edges were giving way.

Room was OK. The need to get some real TV's (old ones and poorly working). Bathroom adequate. The need to replace toilets with larger bowls and higher ones...(being over 6'1"...it was a challenge.

Walls are paper thin. The street and other noises had to be a problem to many. The earplugs were a clue.

Breakfast lacked. A few added things would make it passable. Suggest...sausages, bacon or waffles.

It was a delightful setting...my wife loved that aspect.

Note about parking. If you park on the street during the day, one hour limit. If you find a place after 5:00 PM you can leave it until 10 AM...and it seems to be safe. Homeless people around, but not a problem. Walgreens open 24/7 just down the street.

Room Tip: Get one facing the street. If you can afford a suite all gets better.

We booked this hotel through a Travelzoo deal. When I called to make a reservation the staff was friendly and accommodating . I asked if we could have a room with a view of the bay. He said he would try to get us one. Upon arrival we checked in and we were given an upgrade to a small suite. We were also given several vouchers for wine tasting, a $25.00 certificate at the cute little Italian cafe across the street and a coupon for a local restaurant. This hotel does not have a working elevator so pack light for the climb up the stairs. The room was small, but comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was large and comfortable. It reminded me of a European hotel.
The staff was charming and had great recommendations about where to go and where to eat.They did serve a continental breakfast which was nice. The location is right in the heart of the historic district.

Room Tip: The top floor should be quieter. We had one floor above us and we could hear those above move aroun...

Great little hotel right on Alvarado St where there are many restaurants and pubs. Great service and a great price. Bellman even carried my luggage over to the Monterey/Salinas Airport Shuttle a block away. No elevator is a minor thing, but there is always a bellman on duty for luggage assistance.
