Great place to stay, many original features on perfect working order. Very nice night
I had a lovely stay here. I see a lot of noise complainers in the comments here, but it's an old building, so what can you do? The hotel seemed to be sensitive to this and included earplugs and a nice note in our room. We were positioned near the infamously loud stairs but still slept soundly without having to use the earplugs. Honestly, the seagulls outside were more noticeable than any noises within the building, but still not especially bothersome. Can I gripe about that? You're a block from the waterfront, that's part of the charm. The room was not opulently luxurious, but still a bit fancy. Everything was very clean and the staff were kind when we spoke with them. The hotel has a historical feel and seems well maintained. I have no complaints. I think anyone with reasonable expectations would be pleased with this hotel. It's also a 15-20 minute walk from the aquarium.
I'm not a big fan of television (nor would I want to waste vacation time in a lovely town watching TV), but the TV in the room was small and outdated. Again, this didn't bother me at all, but some people might care. Their on-site valet parking was pricey ($17 I think?), so we opted for the $7/day public garage 1 block away and lugged our bags.
The staff was very accommodating.
Asked for a quite room after reading reviews online and still had the most noisy experience of my life. Doors slamming until 3am and seagulls screeching. I had to move rooms and pretty much missed out on the relaxation part of vacation.
The staff was wonderful- friendly and helpful and smiling. The bellhops offered to help with bags, but I stubbornly wanted to take care of myself. Continental breakfast had many choices. Each room is unique and shaped differently; I would have loved to see each one.
We were on the 4th floor and it was a difficult climb for me. Boy, am I out of shape!
Very. Cute and good location. Friendly staff.
They put me on the 4th floor there was NO elevator. They did have a bell man carry my luggage up for me. The first room I was put in smelled of mildew or ? They then moved me down one floor. Nice room but right next to the staircase everyone had to drag their luggage up. Very loud late into the night. Also no AC. Opening the window was loud too because of the nesting seagulls right outside my window. Ugh BUT in the managers favor when I told them how I could not sleep through all this they said the would have the room charge credited. Thank you.
Amazing location Heart of downtown Anywhere is pretty much walking distance Complimentary breakfast
No self parking lot Super old mattress and bed Tiny rooms No AC or heater
Great location. We took a couple of wonderful walks down to the waterfront. We always love seeing the marine life in Monterey. The staff were very friendly and always welcoming. The room was comfortable -- nothing luxurious, but it suited our purposes very well. Love the hotel's interior -- very nice job of restoration and upkeep. Very pleased we could find a room here on a popular holiday weekend.
An elevator would be appreciated.
Location is perfect for getting around the city. In the heart of downtown Monterey and there are plenty restaurants in the area
The building is old and so is the furniture. Amenities were a bit out dated and the bed frame squeaked so much I couldn't get to sleep
As soon as we got there the staff was super friendly. As we were checking in, the woman at the front desk automatically offered us a complimentary upgrade. The room was phenomenal. Most amazing views in the bedroom, bathroom and living area. Cutely decorated. Most definitely will be staying here again!
Stepped on a shard of glass in te bathroom from, what I'm assuming, the people who were staying there before us. But wasn't that big of a deal to me at least
I really felt the history in this hotel as well as a few modern convienances like wifi. The hotel is kept very clean and elegant I would defiantly come back
Bathroom is small
The friendliness of the staff, the ambience and furnishings, the location, the value, the courteous attitude...I could go on! I eavesdropped on a fantastic history "lesson" given by the front desk attendant. Although I grew up in Monterey, I learned many things I didn't know. Don't be afraid to ask questions. The staff genuinely loves Monterey and it shows!
Not much to dislike! Soon to be ADA compliant with the addition of a functioning elevator=even better. In the meantime, if the stairs are overwhelming with baggage, tip the bellman and make his/her day with appreciation of how often they climb these historic staircases. Such a grand building! I'll be back!
