It was ok stay for 1 night

Improve services

Liked cleanliness and reasonable price. Disliked room door access from exterior rather than interior of hotel.

Liked the view of the lake; however there were many mosquitoes that would come into the room. Bathroom had mold/mildew growing in the shower, and lint was caked up on the baseboard along with more mold and mildew where water had dropped and collected from people hanging their towels. Can tell it had never been cleaned. Very low water pressure; explains why the shower did not seem clean, it's not really possible with a sprinkle of water. Saw a maid dragging bedding on the ground outdoors as well. Carpets were stained and in need of cleaning. Would not stay here again due to lack of cleanliness of the rooms/overall hotel.

Room wasn’t ready until 4:30pm. Breakfast was limited, facility wasn’t that clean.

Dirty inside the room and outside as well. AC did not cool. No body soap in the room. Terrible WiFi. Telephone in room did not work.

Pros: We liked that there was a great bike path nearby, Monterey was seriously a bike ride less than 2 miles away. Next to in and out burger. Right off freeway. Cons: The exterior needs a serious upgrade. Interior is upgraded, there was a gap underneath the door 😔

When i booked this hotel it specifically stated "Breakfast Included". Upon checking-in the concierge told me "no breakfast on weekends". I double checked my reservation and provided to the concierge that confirms breakfast but she refused to honor it. Definitely would've chosen one of many other hotels in the area that actually serve breakfast

Quiet and peaceful during my weekend stay! I appreciate how clean and safe the area was thank you kindly!

Excellent customer service. However, upon checking in we learned there was construction/renovation happening. But we were not informed that it would be taking place in the room next to us/near us. Drilling and things until 5pm Sat. Again, after 8am Sun. During those times we were hoping to either relax or sleep, so I wish they had made that clear beforehand. Either before booking OR at check-in. We didn't ask to change rooms because it was only a 1 night stay.

The rooms are tiny some of the furniture is old and funky. The place is over priced for what it is.

It was a small room and they had 2 shower gels and no shampoo

The location was perfect for our needs. The view of the ocean was not as good as we hoped, even on the 4th floor, but not a big deal. Also, if you don't like traffic noise, you wouldn't want to be on the ocean side of the building. There were numerous breakfast choices and plenty of places to sit. Very accommodating.

The location was perfect and the staff was so friendly

The staff were friendly. The hotel on the outside was clean. Inside our room was generally clean but the carpet was filthy. The carpet was unusually damp everywhere. The kids feet were dirty even running around on it a few mins. The kids liked the pool. Didn't get a chance to see the free breakfast. Beds were ok. You can hear street noise but didn't bother me.
