When planning my vacation, I chose this hotel because of it's location in the Cannery Row area. Check in went well, and the staff was friendly. The desk clerk even offered to help with our bags if needed. We were assigned a room on the 3rd floor. Once we got to the room, we found it to be nice and...

Located one street over from Cannery Row and just a few blocks from the aquarium, this hotel offers a perfect location when visiting Monterey. The rooms were clean and neat with updated decor. Grout around the tub and toilet was clean and in good shape (this is usually the first thing I check). The room had a clean smell and...

Good quality mid-ranking hotel. Comfortable, clean double room although space at a premium with two young boys on a sofa bed. However, it met our needs for the two nights and everything was within walking distance. Breakfast was light. Parking was free which was a real bonus given we were heading for San Francisco when it most certainly is not!!

This hotel has nice and clean rooms. Excellent location. We just walked from this hotel to Monterey Bay Aquarium about 10-15 mins. Parking is free and we even left our car there after we checked out. They have great buffet breakfast which the staff refills right away. Would recommend this hotel and would probably stay again in this facility.

Great location for family visit to area attractions. Easy walk to Cannery Row attractions including the Aquarium etc. Clean, well maintained property. Tip: Use Yelp etc. to source dining ideas and information. Really enjoyed Gianni's pizza and Hulu's for dinner.

I wrote a review in Dec 2010, and again in November 2011 giving the hotel high praise. We stayed again in April 2012 over spring break, and we still love it. It is simply great for our family given the location and ease. Generally the reviews here on Trip Advisor are accurate. The hotel is a great location, the hotel...

We usually stay at a hotel one street up (it actually turns out our room faced that street) and didn't even realize this hotel was here until I waited too long to get our usual hotel and room. The room was nice although we had to walk up some stairs to get to it. The staff was great. They were...
