ViewClose proximity to beachClose proximity to San FranciscoClose proximity to Highway 1Good restaurants within walking distanceParking great
little older than expected
Very nice hotel
Too little space for breakfast
Little bit noisy
The location near the beach was great! Easy walk to the ocean.
Tour buses used the hotel so it was packed at breakfast and a little noisy.
CLEAN HOTEL GOOD LOCATION BUT....
....WAS RIGHT NEXT TO THE FREEWAY AND WAS LOUD. ALSO HAS ONGOING CONSTRUCTION RIGHT NOW SO WE GOT HIT WITH A DOUBLE WAMMY OF NOISE ALL THE NIGHTS WE WERE THERE. WOKE UP WITH A HEADACHE CAUSE IT WAS SO LOUD.
Very clean and comfortable beds
A microwave would be nice
Clean and quiet.
The room was clean and well stocked. The Staff was friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. Breakfast was great. The bed was comfortable. Over all it had all that we needed.
This was an older motel, and a little dated. There was a little dust on lamps bases etc. Nothing serious.
fantastic location, with easy access to a wonderful beach
After moving in to my room I discovered that I could not get wifi in the room, but could get wifi in the lobby. They offered to make me pack up everything and move to another room
I liked the location
We booked a room with a king size bed and we got a room with two queen size beds and they did not switch our room or consider our booked confirmation room.
seemed very dirty, found a ton of hair in the shower upon arrival, breakfast was awful yogurt was warm, waffle tasted like cardboard, warm cereal milk, microwaved eggs and sausage... Yuck.
Walking to beach, highway access
They had construction which blocked stairs and parking unloading. Place was tri level which makes transporting luggage difficult for older persons. Clerk didn't know about blocked areas
Quick drive to moss landing from there. Clean comfortable room.
Breakfast area very cramped and layout made it difficult to get to various items due to the logjam for the waffle maker.
Open access. Might not be safe for families with children. Close to highway 1.
No hot water in room, staircases closed, no directions on where to go, minimal staff working because of renovations. When I called about not having hot water they said 'yeah, that happens in that room sometimes.' Why would you put someone in that room?!
location easy on/off, close to a beach, friendly staff, nice breakfast options, family atmosphere and outside tables in landscaped central area
thin walls- can hear other guests too easily, seemed a bit run down, carpet dirty, dated furnishings.
Too close to freeway. Room wasn't clean enough.
easy to find it¿
can't sleep because the bedbug in room 243!
This is a very mediocre hotel
TV was too small, carpet needs cleaning, window broke when attempted to open it. Construction was loud, hot tub is very small
Proximity to nice beach
No fridge in room. No rollaway beds available. Breakfast room way too small for amount of people at hotel. No pool.
The free breakfast was pretty good.
No ADA access! Put a ramp in somewhere or a elevator.
It had a nice view.
The room smelled like mold. The breakfast was not as good as expected. The bathroom was very small.
very remote area no eating & shopping place we spent most our time in Monterey,Capitola and Santa Cruz
Waaaay over priced for the location, lack of pool, smallest jacuzzi I've ever seen and it was under construction which was inconvenient because the stairs closest to my room were out of order.
I loved the location. Room was comfortable and clean.
The breakfast room was uncomfortably hot with no air flow and too small for the amount of people there. Hope they can fix that before my next visit. Or maybe I'll just go to Denny's across the street.
Within walking distance to beach. Clean room. Continental breakfast selection was good. Desk staff friendly.
Floor lamp in room did not work. One of wall outlets did not work.
The staff was very friendly and the price was low, so it met our expectations for basic accommodation for one night.
The location is noisy being right beside the highway. Also one could hear sound from the next rooms pretty easily. The bathroom kind of smelled.
Great location.clean room
Did not receive the type room we reserved. We were put in the worst part of the hotel. We had no prior knowledge of the construction going on in over 2/3 of the rooms and and didn't receive any sort of compensation for the inconvenience.
Cleaniness of the room and location.
Staff somewhat unprofessional.Forgot a pair of tennis shoes, called back to notify staff and they claimed to be unable to contact housekeeping staff.
Location was beautiful, loved that we could walk to the beach. In the city of Marina there are some good little restaurants. But the actual hotel was not very clean. Room didt smell or look clean. Heater smelled bad. 1 star for hotel, 4 stars for area
Room dirty, beds uncomfortable, no one came to clean the room, bring fresh towels or take out trash. Very disappointed!
Very nice, friendly staff decent breakfast. Allowed us an extra hour on our departure no extra charge!
Jacuzzi wasn't hot. Construction workers staying there were very loud as they left around 5-6 in the morning. Quality of bread items for breakfast could've been better.
Location was close to beach but you couldn't see the water from this location.
Poorly managed. Garbage piled high in hallways. Shower head had very low water pressure. Bathtub had no dropper. Called manager at 8am to request bathtub stopper, issue wasn't handled til almost 9pm that evening. Very disappointing!!
Close to the beach
no crib availability, felt like a 'sketchy motel'
Close to the beach
Dirty sheets, couldn't cancel reservation, had to wait till 3 pm to check in
It was ok as far as the cost and fairly decent location. We stayed there to go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It's about twenty minutes from there.
There was no pool! There was a very small hot tub in the center of the complex. I realize this isn't completely the fault of the hotel but there were cigarette butts in the children's play area and there were piles of butts under the stairs. Not again!
It was just ok at best.
no not really
