Editorial review:

This hotel sticks out over Monterey Bay and you can walk to the Cannery Row shops and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The location is great and the corner rooms with ocean views, albeit a little pricier, are highly recommended. It's easy to spot sea otters from your room and you'll hear seals barking at night. There's a spa with two hot tubs on the roof. Some critics disliked the rooms and felt that they were too reminiscent of motel rooms, and the lack of facilities was also criticized.

          I liked it's location and convience.

          Bed uncomfortable and gave me backache.

          Very nice rooms and excellent service. All staff very very helpful/

          Poor menu in Schooners. A little stuffy considering it's not 5-Star. Our 'Island View Room' had no Island View.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The location was the best, slightly off Cannery Row which is a bit of a zoo. It was also nice to have good food on site.

          Our room faced the street and the ocean between two buildings, at times it was a little noisy.

        • Family with children

          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.
