Loved it!
Heather F

It's literally on the beach, the rooms are clean, they accept dogs (for a fee), and service is fast and friendly! I only ever stay here when i go to monterey because it's hands-down my favorite hotel. Highly recommended if you're looking for a beach hotel that is not too expensive.

Great Ocean Views!

I booked this reservation at the last minute and was not sure the location would work. The hotel online looked fabulous and when I arrived I was upgraded to Ocean View. It was nice to hear the ocean waves every day. Great location and facilities were tidy and upgraded. I would stay here again.

Spectacular Location

Just can't beat the view and the access to a great beach. The Hotel itself is nice, but needs a little fixing up, but the location and the view make all that seem minimal. Overall a great location very close to all the Monterey destinations
