8.0 Very good
Recently remodeled rooms, very comfy bed, nice shower, quick hot water
7.1 Good
Pros:Room that has everything I expect from a hotel including refrigerator, A/C and microwave. Bath was shower only but was fine for what was needed. Staff was curtious and handled our needs appropriately. Coffee/Tea was provided in the office in the morning.
Cons:Room has had a lot of work done by someone that fancies themselves as a handyman. Walls had obvious patches, light fixtures/vents were not flush with the ceiling, wall texture flaking off. There also were a few ants in the bathroom.
8.2 Very good
Pros:My husband and i always stay here when we are in the Monterey area. Rooms are clean and the beds are pretty comfortable. Great location, close to an outlet mall with shopping and restaurants. And not a far drive from the warf. They have cleaned up the place since our first stay.
