8.0 Very good
The bed is amazingly comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. If your room is facing the walking trail, it can be quite noisy.
8.0 Very good
Pros:Really great location and the staff was very warm & friendly and super helpful.
Cons:The parking situation.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Schooners serves up the Best breakfast in Monterey period, one of the reasons i stay here in fact.
8.2 Very good
Pros:We loved being on the ocean. The location was fantastic for enjoying sea life and kayaking. We also liked the kindness of the staff.
Cons:The bed and the pillows could have been more comfortable. The cables around the balcony were also unsightly, but the view and ambience made up for it.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Room was spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable and there was a ceiling fan! For all you fan lovers you know this is rare! Excellent customer service and location! I would stay there again
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Rooms are beautiful. Vanity makeup area to get ready in, and spacious shower. Bed was extremely comfortable, almost the same as my bed from home. Staff had superb customer service skills and went above and beyond to make our stay easier. Rooftop sun deck gives amazing views down the coast from a jacuzzi! Would definitely come back again.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The staff is amazing and the hotel was very elegant. I was very satisfied with everything I have no complaints. There is nothing I can say bad about this hotel.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:View was AMAZING! Bed and pillows were sooo comfortable! Bathroom was beautiful! Everyone was so friendly and went above and beyond!
Cons:The room came with robes which is a plus, but they were very itchy so I didn't end up using it.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:This place is amazing. Although ostensibly it doesn't look over the top, it is a quietly classy place. Our receptionist, Tiana, helped us throughout our stay and she is the sweetest and most accommodating representative (although everyone we met just went over the top, from the concierge to the bellhops to Ryan the cars concierge). The rooms are huge. They easily fit all of the stuff for our 8 month old with tons of room to spare. His packnplay was no issue at all. Everything is very clean and it was quiet and relaxing. We ordered room service , and it was pricey as expected, but the food was DELICIOUS! I doubt we would have found better food elsewhere - the crab cake Eggs Benny was delicious! We checked out and had our car brought around (valet parking is surprisingly included in the resort fee) and Ryan, our car concierge , told us if sightseeing (we were headed to the aquarium), to feel free to leave the car there, no problem, till 5. That was really nice and we did not have to worry about parking. Overall this is right on the end of cannery row and is apparently about a 10 minute walk from Fisherman's Wharf as well (we didn't have a chance to get down there). You can't beat the location, the customer service, or the amenities here. We would only stay here when coming back. Thank you!!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Loved the room, the view, and how close you are to all the shops!!
Cons:The food was average at the hotel:(
