Attention to detail in terms of furnishings and garden areas and the attentiveness of ALL the staff. The breakfast was exceptional as was the complimentary afternoon cheese and wine. A real delight!
Location was terrific with a great view from the room. Extremely comfortable bed. We really enjoyed the wine/cheese and the breakfast was excellent. Not really a complaint, but the bathroom area was fairly small but that was not unexpected and certainly not an issue.
The staff were friendly, the room was neat and clean. The location is ideal being next to the main street and close to the beach. The building has a sweetly quaint Victorian bed and breakfast feel to it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The historic architecture and warm atmosphere Street had alot oof traffic noise
Great breakfast, excellent cookies and wine social hour, friendly and helpful staff, cozy rooms, convenient location.
The location and the style of the Inn itself. I am a director of f&b ata 4diamond hotel in sf, and I am certainly picky about service and comfort. For an Inn, Cetrella was top! Nothing.
Excellent location two blocks from beach, two blocks from restaurants. This is an old restored Victorian home and they have stuck to the theme throughout. Lots of flowered wallpaper and antique furniture. Beds are comfortable. TV. Nice gardens. Some of the staff were not as hospitable as I would expect in an inn.
The outstanding event at Centrella Inn was the breakfast----a lot of choice and beautifully cooked and presented---probably the best we had in 6 weeks of travel. The Inn was charming and well situated. Evening drinks and nibbles provided was also a very welcome touch. We liked it all
Big welcome from Honey, very homely with some excellent touches (glass of wine on arrival, home made cookies available during the day). Good breakfast with cooked options. Located in a wonderful town with excellent walking/cycling.
Clean room. Breakfast as described and plentiful. Good location. Pool and hot tub were not very clean
We had a wonderful time! Very close to the beach and Monterey! Pacific grove is such a beautiful area They charged me a different rate for the second night. When I booked on booking.com it get me a flat rate
It was so cozy and felt homey. I did not want to leave. Very clean and just overall an awesome stay That i did not stay longer
good location. The rooms were small , smelled like cigerette smoke in a non-smoking room(they would not give us another room) -my girlfiend is allergic ! not good. The view outside our window was a bunch of construction supplies thrown behing our building. The shower never got hot. I was trying to do something special for my soon to be wife. She was mad/unhappy our entire trip. -unsatisfactory!!!
Rooms were very clean and very nice. Would definitely recommend.
Well worth the money, and what a fabulous rate they have for bring practically beachfront! Very accommodating and helpful. Great breakfast too!! That we only stayed for one night! Can't wait to go back and stay longer.
Location, convenience, privacy in cottage everything was good
Great place. Awesome rooms.
Comfortable bed, dog friendly, good location. Twice in one day our keys would not open the door and required us to wait outside for someone to bring new ones over.
Everyone from the front desk staff, the servers and bartenders, and the housekeepers did an amazing job. I work in the service industry in a casino/resort, and yet I experienced better service and a better experience with the staff at the Hyatt than where I work. A+++. The only things I didn't like had nothing to do with the hotel and its staff. It isn't located downtown, so it is a very short trek to the festivities in town. Also, it sounded like a large man was doing burpees in the room above us.
We enjoyed the recently updated rooms including the very nice bathroom with vanity and open shower. We enjoyed very tasty room service meals (dinner and breakfast). We also used the pool which was pleasantly warm. The toilet was a bit of a tight fit with walls on either side. The air conditioner was a standing machine which had an exhaust that was separated form the back and until we reattached it poured hot exhaust over the air-conditioning.
There was very little water pressure from the shower. Also the heater thermostat did not work. We set it at 80 we were freezing and went to bed, when we woke up the heater never kicked on but the ceiling fan did? So weird
No AC in room.
Checking in was not only expedient but flawless. Had no issues at all, was in my room within 10 minutes of pulling up to the front door. Room was excellent and I do suggest the pool view.
Loved that they had live music. Restaurant had good service for breakfast and dinner. Food was good as well. Did not like carpet in bedrooms. Bathrooms a bit small
Clean facilities, close to Wharf and other fun activities. So noisy! Do not get a first floor room. You can hear EVERY footstep the family above takes.
Super nice staff. The $22 resort fee includes parking and internet. A little farther from the wharf/tourists spots.
I liked the outdoor area. There is a large pool, hot tub, games, and communal fire pit that was a lot of fun. I really dislike the bed covers. You are either way too hot or freezing. What happened to old-fashioned blankets?
Quick drive into downtown Monterey. Nice rooms and property.
Good location and well appointed.
Very nice hotel. Montery is a expensive place to stay but this hotel has a nice swimming pool to compensate the price. For the price i think the rooms should have a fridge. Also no breakfast for this price. Parking was not 15usd but 17usd.
closeness to warf, shopping, dining.
Everything was excellent. Warm Choc Chip cookies upon arrival. The hotel staff was pleasant, the concierge was excellent, knowledgeable, informative, and patient. Conveniently located and a nice 15 minute walk to Cannery Row.
We loved the location, walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf. Beautiful hotel. We ate breakfast at the buffet one morning, omelets cooked to order, could also get waffles, pancakes, or french toast cooked to order, delicious.
Perfect location in middle of Monterey car week. Due to crowds parking a little difficult. Room overlooked rear entrance. A little noisy late at night.
The hotel was very exquite. The rooms very comfortable and clean. The employees very friendly and helpful
the staff was very nice and the rooms are great.the hotel is very big but you dont feel it. we ask for two rooms next to eash other becouse travaling with children but the rooms were very far from eash other.we payed for seaview and you allmost couldnt see the sea.
Location. Close to downtown Monterey, Fishermen's Wharf, Cannery Row activities. Good service at the spa/
I really liked the location and the comfortable rooms I didn't like the charges for parking, wifi, water in the room.
Overall, the staff was very nice and helpful. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. It was also spacious which was a plus with two toddlers in tow. I had two separate reservations because we decided to come a day earlier. The check in person down graded my room without telling me or reducing the room rate! I thought this was outrageous.
We enjoyed the spa and the attentive staff.Please write at least 15 words Valet
Excellent customer service by all staff.
Location Room service
I liked it's location and convience. Bed uncomfortable and gave me backache.
It was very relaxing environment not realy
the bed was very comfortable charge of $25 resort fee.
The Plaza is a beautiful hotel with great rooms. The location is perfect also, walking distance to lots of food and shopping.
The bed room was very confortable and the spa was good the valet parking was a little expensive, the resteraunt was only average in food quality and expensive for what you got.
I really enjoyed the staff and their friendly personalities. The Hotel was beautiful and the room was perfect. I highly recommend this hotel. We can not wait to return we will being staying here again it is truly a 5 star establishment. It made our 15th wedding anniversary very special.
Loved the room, the view, and how close you are to all the shops!! The food was average at the hotel:(
Very nice decor in room and everywhere. Staff is friendly and helpful. Nice view of Monterey Bay from lobby and lower level lounge. WI-FI is free and works well. Expensive! Breakfast not included, 10% extra tax, and $25 extra for 2 queen beds instead of the default 1 king size bed. Only one night table. Parking is valet only, front bumper came back with a dent. I prefer to self-park. Getting my car back took 10 to 30 minutes. Driver expects to get a tip each time. There is a spa but it is not free. Someone placed a couple of calls from our room, I had to prove they were not mine.
The location was great. Right in the middle of Cannary Row. The pool was small.
This was a great location within walking distance of phenomenal dining and wine tasting rooms. Room was exceptional, the service excellent and the spa personnel accommodating. First deep tissue massage I ever tapped out for a slightly lesser pressure. We will return over and over again. You have to stay here when in Monterrey! Nothing
I really loved the location !!! And the beds are comfort , lobby was nice . Jacuzzi closes at 10:30 even on weekend :(
Excellent service Noisiest hotel in Monterey
You can't beat the location- just a block away from the Monterrey Bay Aquarium and right on Cannery Row. Staff was all very nice and the facilities were top notch. The restaurant was not pricey and not very good. This is a small complaint, as the view was outstanding and there are plenty of better places to eat within easy walking distance. Would have been nice if wifi was included with room.
Lovely location right in the heart of Cannery Row and on the waterfront. This is not an inexpensive hotel but let's face it this is an InterContinental brand not a Motel 6. If you want to splurge this is a good choice however if you don't need a waterfront view and stay in the connected bldg. across the street you can get a room with a fireplace for less. I found this hotel to be relaxing and the staff helpful. Even without a waterfront room they have a large deck area looking out into Monterey Bay where you can sit in front of a fire pit with your friends or by yourself and sip your favorite beverage and enjoy the view and some down time from busy Cannery Row.
Friendly staff I thought booking a hotel right next to the water that I could be hearing waves in the tranquility of the evening. Instead I hear cars and foot traffic because our room is all the way back and faces the garage. This hotel was almost three times the cost of any equivalent hotel if it wasn't next to the waves I didn't get to hear.
The location It was no better than a holiday express, but much more expensive. Beds were miserably uncomfortable.
Incredible staff, convenient location
Liked how we could purchase 2 day aquarium tickets for the same price. That was very convenient. I didn't need a mini bar in he room. But would of liked a microwave and mini fridge.
staff is amazing, the room was perfect and you can't beat the location at one block from the aquarium.
Nice rooms, and great restaurant attached to hotel with an extensive wine menu
My wife and I stayed at the Martine Inn during Monterey Car Week and, in spite of the elevated activity level throughout the Monterey area, Don, his Grandson and the staff took great care of us. The Inn was our welcome ocean front retreat when we needed a break. Breakfasts were very good and the afternoon "tea" was extensive and tasty. All in all, a delightful stay. Being car week, the room rates were not a bargain but also not totally unreasonable as all area accommodations go up pretty sharply during that time. Also, the rooms are not air conditioned, which is not prominently mentioned. Though the days were pretty warm (August) the ocean front location assured that things cooled down reasonably during the evenings. Sleeping was not at all uncomfortable.
They are meembers of the 4 sisters org. I have always had a good experience with them. Very enjoyable!, It owuld be nice to have a TV in every room. Very good place
We loved the atmosphere, and the food was deliciousm staff was excellent and we felt very comfortable there.
Nice accommodation near shops and restaurants. Cozy guesthouse with friendly personell.
we had deer right in front of our patio door! And the grounds were nice. The beds were also comfortable. The free wifi was easy to use too. The location is great. Our patio sliding door didn't have a screen so when we opened the door for ventilation I noticed a couple of mosquitoes. And when exploring the cemetery that our room faced I noticed that other rooms in our building had screens on their doors. The room also had a weird smell when we first got there. while the sheets were clean the carpet had several stains and there were a lot of scratches and marks on the walls. And considering the price and how easy it would be to cover them with touch up paint, I was disappointed with the quality...not to mention our room was described as having a fireplace and ours did not.
Perfect space for us. A little balcony which was nice because we have a one-year-old that goes to bed at 7:30. Short walk to the coast and out of the way of the touristy business of Monterey. Only like three chairs at the pool. Sliding doors to balcony very stubborn.
Reviews of this property are rather unfair. It is well kept and the room was very nice and clean. It appears to be recently updated. It does back up to a cemetery but that didn't bother us and provided for a view of the grazing deer. Internet worked well and the fire-pit was a great place to relax. The breakfast was cold, tasteless and for the most part empty trays of food were offered. Rubber egg frisbees, cold under cooked potatoes and slimy oatmeal. Bring your own breakfast! Other than the breakfast things were good.
Rooms are upgraded and very nice, great location, pleasant staff. The "Lodge" is in one location across the street from the picturesque "Cottages". The "Lodge" rooms are more of a typical Motel, with upstairs rooms and downstairs rooms (thus neighbors can be noisy if you are downstairs). Cottages are the pics you see and are beautiful, if you are staying there, which can be misleading as there are no two double bed rooms in the cottages. All two bed rooms are in lower level in the "Lodge". What really upset us is the two levels of service. In the "Cottages" there is a beautiful main dining area for meals/wine/fire pits, but you can't use it if you are staying in the "Lodge" rooms. The "Lodge" rooms get a very cramped continental breakfast that would be sub-par for a Super 8.
Perfect for families with young kids and dogs. Five minutes from Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Roe. Just around the corner from 17 Mile Drive gate. Convenient parking. Rooms and resort dated and a bit run down. Could be a little cleaner. Continental breakfast area overcrowded and toasters not all working. Night front desk clerk not very friendly.
The room was nice and spacey. The fireplace was a nice addition even though we didn't use it. It's a good location to see things in Monterey bay, walking or driving. The breakfast is a good deal. We tried to check in and was told our room wouldn't be ready for 30-45 minutes. They suggested we come back or wait. No explanation was given and there were absolutely no apologies or signs of inconvenience. They only gave us 3 towels for the room and when we asked for more because we were going to the pool it seemed super inconvenient for them or like it wasn't allowed. Be aware of the mosquitoes in the area. We left the door open and a lot got in the room. Be aware the space behind the hotel is a cemetery.
Cute room, the room was clean. The back of our room was facing a cemetery. And the landscape hadn't been maintained for quite sometime.
Away from tourist areas. Very peaceful. Needs some renovation.
The area, peaceful and seanic. The area it is in
It was very charming with the cemetery and light house within walking distance. Shower doors and floor tile could use some Tilex
The location Very poor wifi, and poor phone service. Breakfast was very minimal without much selection.
The views were excellent. Proximity to other attractions was a plus. Second day breakfast had no meat items.
Building architecture Room cleanliness, size, quality of material. sheets, etc. The heater blows right on the bes and makes sleelinping very uncomfortable when turned on.
We had a nice large room with a fireplace and vaulted ceilings. Nicely decorated. Very clean. Parking right out front. Comfortable bed. Everything we needed was already in our room.
Family rooms are right between staircases that are outside looking into your room. Very loud from other rooms. Seemed old and poorly insulated. Outdoor lighting shined in Windows. Definitely felt dirty in rooms, beds very uncomfortable. Have to be honest because I read people's reviews that liked it and that's why we took family there. Poor decision! Will not recommend or return...
Location was fine. Spacious room. Bed was comfortable. Gas fireplace warmed the room. Crowded breakfast room. Furnishings were tired. Some voices from neighboring room through the wall. Bathroom sink drained slowly and needed to be cleaned.
The maintenance manager was nice, helpful. One of the older hosts was nice. The girl checking in was a smartie. And they never opened the continental breakfast until 8AM. So, the three days I attended my conference that started at 8AM in Monterey, I missed breakfast. !! I deserve a discount for no breakfast access for three days. Who does this? Every other inn around there starts at 6 AM! The room was dated. comfortable bed. The pool not heated, which precludes it's use. the tile in hot tub cracked and missing! And I paid more than was quoted.
The location bathroom needs updating,tiny thin shelf along the wall was the only space to put things,need a surround around the sink.Room cluttered with pictures and two fake flower pots.Not sure why a room near the sea has to have the 'italian countryside' look.It would make the rooms appear more spacious if the clutter was gone &colour scheme reflected sea side theme.?need for outside light on all night.
we stayed there a year ago and liked the location, pleasant color of the room, the view outside of our room, the quietness and being close to the ocean walk. So we decided to return and found everything being just as nice. There is nothing we found not to our liking. Thank you!
Beautiful décor is the icing on the cake for this newly remodeled hotel. Tiled bathrooms and pillow top mattresses combined with spacious closets and effective kitchenettes created a down-home luxurious feeling. Easily accessible from the parking lot, the room's manually locked doors allowed you to enter your home-away from home. In addition to all the typical amenities of vending and Wi-Fi, the beautifully tailored grounds were punctuated by a pool, Jacuzzi and fire pit. This affordable hotel had a feeling of opulence that doesn't break the bank. That I had to leave!
Badly stained carpet, a/c ventilation grill hadn't seen a brush or duster in years, it was "furry" with dust/dirt.
The hotel is very simple and the continental breakfast means muffins and coffee. Definetely not a 3 stars.
the room is very beautiful and comfort. The front desk is very helpful. My families love this place very much!
The hotel was very clean and quiet. The staff was very helpful.
one room had furniture outside in the parking lot waiting for the carpet to dry, yet we were given key and told it was ready. we were not assigned another room in the nearly empty complex and had to wait them out.No black out curtains with bright outside light making room like day time all night long, not good for sleeping. No hot water in the am for a shower, nor hot water in the sink. unconconcered and rude young woman at front desk. will not go back. mostly because of the nasty girl at the desk. told me next time i could go out at night and unscrew the bulb if the light bothered me. Couldnt explain the lack of appropiate curtains. probably out in the parking lot with the other furniture
Clean and quiet location. Easy access to all the area offers. Good value for money No laundry
We stayed in the delux queen cottage and it was perfect! Newly remodeled, spacious, private and quiet with a kitchenette. The cottages don't share walls and have lovely views of landscaping and trees. Wish we would have stayed longer, we will be back.
I thought the hotel was in a great location, you could actually hear the ocean waves at night, and a pretty good price for the area. It was a very quiet location too.
Modern room update. Extra sink/ mirror outside of bathroom which is always useful. Very clean. Comfortable bed and bedding. Fireplace which would be lovely in cool weather. Centrally located. The safe in our room would not open and my things were in it. The hotel staff could not fix it although the maintenance guy was able to get it open. The manager gave us a voucher for the restaurant which was appreciated. Small room size. No air conditioning which I realize they don't need very often, but it was quite warm when we were there.
Staff was fantastic- just very accomodating, friendly and really made an effort to make the stay enjoyable. Can't say enough about the staff. I was sitting reading on their pretty outdoor patio and they offered me a glass of wine, even though the bar wouldn't be open for another few hours. Room was really great- spacious, updated fixtures and hardware (felt like a swanky room), and without any ambient noise at all. Plush soft towels, comfortable bedding- the whole experience just made us both feel like "ok, we're staying at a NICE hotel." We were on the second floor facing the street and really didn't get any street noise at all either. If we're ever back in the area, we will definitely stay here again.
We often stay in Monterey and we very much like this place. It's location is great if you don't mind walking a little, and the rooms are nice, clean and well-equipped. The amenities are small -- workout room, pool, etc... but when in Monterey there isn't a reason to stay at the hotel anyway. During peak season, the rooms are a little pricey here
Pool, hot tub I paid $200 for basically a motel with a cuter looking front. The place seems like it needs a fix up and not just cosmetic. I've NEVER stayed in a hotel with no a/c..you should at least advertise that there's no a/c. We heard every footstep of the guests above us. I'd never stay again
The check in person was helpful and friendly. The check out person was defensive. Room is too crowded with stuff. Lack of space for luggage and yourself. We were on first floor where they recommend locking windows plus people could see in. Two small windows on the parking/alley side did not provide enough air considering there was no A/C. Also very noisy in the morning on that side. Add to that was the fact the screens were ripped. TV had a cheap, crappy remote. The location is only okay. Price too high for the product.
Clean. Nice nice room.
-We were allowed to check-in early (11am!) -The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. -The fireplace was very romantic and made the room toasty. -The outdoor pool was heated and clean.
The location was good not great. Close to stuff but still a bit of a walk. I was happy with the value. Comfortable room and clean. It looks like the place has recently been renovated. A bigger pool and hot tub would be nice.
I was looking for the best hotel for the most reasonable price that accepted dogs. This was the one that I found using Hotels.com and Yelp and other resources. They honored my reservation made late last year and I was able to bring my dog. That was really great. The rooms were very nice, very clean. It was an excellent value for the money. Some people complained about the noise but I did not notice any problems with that. Staff was very nice and allowed me to keep my trailer parked in the lot while my boat was on the water. That allowed me flexibility during my visit. The front parking lot was very tight and very full. The back lot was not accessible due to construction but I assume that would free help once construction ceased. They no longer accept dogs. I would go back again if they allowed dogs still. In fact, it would be the only place I would go while staying there. The fridge is a little small but many food options were nearby so storing food is not really highly necessary.
This hotel depends on its superior location for its business. The facility otherwise is lacking in every other category. There are too many better hotels in the area for the price. It would behoove the owners to spend a little money on this facility as it is run down and inoperative. What work was done was not to any professional level i.e. shower stalls with large holes where the installer completely missed the plumbing opening. We complained that the drain was so slow that standing water backed up 4" deep. Came back that night with no repair. Also came back to an room that had not been cleaned. AM staff would only ARGUE that there was a do not disturb sign on door. We did not leave one.
Price, Breakfast was OK, ocean across the street, breakfast was OK, refrigerator in room was a plus, close to where I needed to go. Below parking felt dicey, rooms need upgrading.
Beach front view and lower level is better easy access to the road and taxis Lady at customer service was really rude. Had to take a taxi to fisherman's warf and aquarium since didn't want to pay for parking there but it is not a walk away from hotel it's a drive, bathroom was not clean and very very tiny.
location Garbage trucks outside window at 6 AM Broken heater with poor substitute heat source Noisey alley Parking lot view w/no assigned parking Very dated and worn: bordered on shabby
The location is definitely perfect for a quiet weekend get away. the room was clean and definitely easy enough to check in. Breakfast was good There was an overall musty smell in the room and bathroom. The paint in the bathroom was bubbling off the walls.
I liked my view from my room also very comfortable bed
Good location, right at Lover's Point. The free WiFi was good enough to stream a kids show via Netflix. Very noisy with thin walls. The rooms are on the small side with an odd layout. However, it has everything you need for a short stay.
The location and staff was friendly. Had a mini fridge and microwave which is all you really need. Very clean and had a nice little tv. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. I'm not sure if the walls are very thin or because our room was a Couple feet from where the cars park but you could hear every little sound outside of the room. The people above us had lead feet as well buts that's not necessarily the hotels fault.
The location was fantastic, and the staff was very friendly. The facilities were outdated and there was some water in the parking area.
Location was amazing! The hotel was extremely loud which is a challenge when traveling with a toddler. Most of the staff was helpful but I found Julianna to be rude and abrupt. When asking about a place to get bagels she pointed behind her and said "check lighthouse Ave." even though she had a map in front of her she did not help with directions. Also not helpful during a power outage. I had to ask them for a flashlight! They didn't even check to see if we needed anything.
Small room,wich seamed a little run down

Excellent location. Old carpet.
Price, location, coziness
Great location across from Asilomar and close to the ocean. Rooms are very dated and worn out. Carpet and bedspread seemed new-ish, but just about everything else was run down or looked pre-1990s. Some lights didn't work and many things were sticky/dirty - remote, lights, knobs. Fireplace nice in another season.

Liked the in-room fireplace, warm reception from staff, wifi, wine social hour Some loud plumbing noises at times
The staff was great. The room was very nice and it was large. We were within a mile of the wharf and Cannery Row. The picture on the website must have been taken 20 years ago. The property has aged considerably but it is very well maintained.
Charming, rustic, great location.
Close to the beach Water was very chlorinated
Great location very near beach and Asilomar. Not nearly as pretty as the website pictures.

Highly under-rated. Inn-keepers were kind, inviting and informative. Newly remodeled, 5 stars for cleanliness, comfort and convenience. Walk to Asilomar was short block, half the distance compared to many rooms on grounds. Can't think of one thing. It was quiet, beds were very comfortable, water pressure for shower was great, fireplace with heater offered nice vib, fire pit table was delightful in cool morning. Hope good reviews will not hike prices! They deserve kudos
The quiet setting and the close proximity to beach. The staff was outstanding. Very friendly and helpful.
It was very clean and quiet. Close to beach and shopping. Very happy with the hotel. Nothing
The location is excellent. The wifi link for the Internet was somewhat poor. Very slow download and upload speed.. It was good enough for email but nothing else. If you need it as a business traveller, it may not suffice.
Location! It was convenient to all of the restaurants and shops in this beautiful seaside town. None within walking distance but short drives to all. Just a couple of the other guests who chose to talk rather loudly at 2:30 AM outside. Everyone had their windows open .
Walking distance to Asilomar Beach. Pleasant staff. Pet friendly rooms. Driving directions from MapQuest
The staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. The location is great close to everything. The street is by our room and it's kind a noisy and noticeable.They definitely have to replace the pillows they get so flat and the bed, I don't know what they can do about them but to replace them eventually. I had backache when I woke up in the morning.
The room was updated. Newly done landscaping. Location was quiet in the late hours. Person at checkin was courteous and helpful. The bed was hard and uncomfortable.
Plenty of room, great staff, very well stocked continental breakfast, quiet, high rise toilet and hot shower.
The set up is great-little cabins with three floors and a garage for your car. Would be so convenient if you were traveling with a group. VERY clean. Very spacious bathrooms. Incredibly quiet. I was on the top floor and my room had a open space high up near the ceiling in my bedroom. I'm sure it was just to hide HVAC in an aesthetically pleasing way-but as a solo traveler it made me nervous to not be able to access such a large space. Maybe ask for a 1st or 2nd floor!
