Beautiful, clean and well staffed with on site dining. The food was really good. Over the water rooms with an abundance of wild life and steps to a sandy shore. Walking distance to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, shopping and local restaurants. Great place to stay.

The hotel is in a great location walking distance to the aquarium and bunch of restaurants. The rooms were comfortable though a bit old style. There is no parking but they do complimentary valet included in the resort fee. Overall kid friendly and a good experience. Loved having coffee in the morning with ocean views.

Everything was amazing! We booked the breakfast package. Love the workout room and sauna, spa deck area, probably my favorite included amenity. Staff was inviting and made us feel very relaxed. Very private feeling. Our two breakfasts were perfect. Dinning staff was excellent! Music/band on Wednesday night was an unexpected surprise, and made sitting by the fire pit with music...

We stayed a night in this clean and nice sea side hotel. Our room was spacious and classy. The beds are very comfortable. Service and staff are nice and welcome. It is centrally located near the Cannery Row. The aquarium is in walking distance.

We booked an oceanfront room with a balcony which allowed us to hear the ocean surf every night. This made for a wonderful sleeping experience. The hotel overall is beautiful and as I remembered it from several years ago.
