Room was much smaller then photos available on site.I've camped in tents larger then the room they gave us. The hotel needs a remodel and an update. Our first night the internet did not work.

We really enjoyed our stay! It was perfect for our family. Our hotel had two separate rooms and we slept better than we have in any other hotel. It was quiet and peaceful and we had a gorgeous view of monterey. Loved it!

Stayed for 2 nights. Room was clean and quiet. Dish TV in the room along with a refrigerator and coffee maker, only complaint is that the wi-fi cut off on us for an extended period of time. Breakfast was pretty good, liked the biscuits and gravy.

"This hotel is a joke"
We showed up to our hotel at about 10 pm and were so ready to crash after a long day of traveling. Needless to say we were very disappointed. First of all, our room was right next to the maintenance room so it had a chemical smell. We got to our room and were checked into a single even though we put that we needed room for 2 people. They gave us a full bed. It was so small that we were practically sleeping on each other. There was hardly any room to walk around the bed. I went to the office and politely told them that we were put into a room that was only meant for one person and that we reserved a room for two. The staff told me that we could switch rooms but we would have to pay $25 extra a night. I did not want anything extravagent, just a room to accommodate 2 people. So I paid the extra but they said the room that they moved us to was only available for the two nights so we had to switch again! I was so frustrated. The rooms had broken switches, gross walls, and muggy smells. I told the front desk that I did not feel that I should have to pay to get a normal/standard bed size for two. They would not budge and still charged me. I am not a room snob by any means but this place is a joke.

"one night stop over"
Location was very good. Staff very nice. Pool was warm and clean. Spa was clean as well. Heavy chlorine smell but that is better than a lack of chlorine. Overall the facility looked ok. My room was in need of some TLC, the window shear had two top to bottom rip's which I did inform the front deck on when leaving.

"Decent for our stay"
Got great service and profesional care by Diego @ the front desk esp. at check-in. Although when I asked another front desk staff for info regarding what to do around the area they had no clue. So do your homework before you venture to near-by attractions. Breakfast was mid-par. Could have better food to serve. Got the King-bed room at the top floor. I was pretty impressed at how large our room was especially for having a toddler with us. There was plenty of room to fit at least 4 more adults... a Murphy bed (which we didn't use) and a couch with a fireplace, a small fridge and microwave. Vanity area was large with an adjoining bathroom. The room seemed clean until I checked my daughter 's new pair of white socks I just put on her. It was already dirty from the carpet. Decor could use sprucing up but who cares much if you are out most of the day. I must say, the bed was very comfortable. The only thing was my husband was complaining the next day that he kept scratching all night. That same day I noticed both my daughter's arms and on one of her legs was small bug bites. I also have them on both lower legs. I would recommend this place only if they periodically change the mattresses or do something so that other guests don't get these bug bites.

Older hotel, could use a little paint here and there. Rooms were clean. Would be nice for hotel to have a list of channels available on TV---the Direct TV Guide was very confusing. Easy access to get to the places we wanted to go. Continental breakfast was "so-so".

The extra $20 per room requested when we checked in was certainly a surprise. There shouldn't be any monetary surprises as we paid ahead through hotels.com. This was said to be a deposit on any damages and would be returned in a "couple of weeks". We'll see. The rooms needed some updating but were comfortable.

"Our home for the Carmel Bach Festival"
The Clarion worked fine for us as a home base to attend the Carmel Bach Festival. The drive to the venues was reasonable, and the hotel was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was adequately staffed. The staff person operated the waffle maker. We would have appreciated some yoghurt and eggs and bacon, but the fruit, cereals, and pastries were fresh.

"Room didn't match picture"
I chose this hotel because I was traveling with a child and the picture indicated it had a couch which was where the child was going to sleep. I was disappointed to arrive to find out the room I was assigned did not have a couch and there were no roll away beds available for the room. The front desk employee tried to have me upgrade to a larger room. I was unhappy with that. The breakfast was simple but adequate. The pool had lots of hair balls in it...it needs to be cleaned regularly! It was a quiet room and we slept well.

"Fine Hotel in Monterey......."
Monterey is the stuff of dreams!!! and this Hotel is very close to Fisherman's wharf.....some great restaurants there. When I checked in I asked Diego for a quiet room and he gave me the 206...top floor very very quiet....The room was spotless.....so clean and neat!!! This hotel is set back from Munras Ave....and kind of cozy.......Great breakfast in the morning...much better than most continental breakfasts! Freshly made waffles and biscuits and gravy nice choice of cereal, bagels, toast...and there is a place to sit outdoors....I really enjoyed that...nice breakfast and talking with another guest. I would definitely to this hotel again.....and both of the receptionists were very helpful and friendly!

"They overbooked!!"
I made reservations through Expedia to stay at the Clarion hotel for one night starting on July 14th and leaving on July 15th. I knew my sister and her son would arrive before me so I called the hotel in advance in order to ensure my sister would be able to check in without me there. The woman at the front desk assured me that it would not be a problem. The woman stated my sister would get her room and she would leave a note for the next employee. A couple hours later, my sister called me and said the hotel overbooked and our rooms were transferred to the Quality Inn. I spoke with the employee at the front desk and explained that I had called a few hours prior and was never informed of the situation. In fact, we were assured our rooms were available. The woman apologized but stated they had overbooked. She further explained that due to us booking through a third party, they only guarantee the rooms they personally book. The Clarion looks like a nice hotel, I was very disappointed that we were forced to stay at the Quality Inn. If I wanted to stay at the Quality Inn, I would have booked a room with them. On a side note, according to the staff at the Clarion, the same company owns both hotels. I guess that is why they share the same pool.

We were very happy with the Clarion. Our room was on the second floor, and what a nice surprise--we had a view of the bay. The balcony was very small, but enough room for 2 chairs. The room was a decent size and the breakfast included hot items--oatmeal, biscuits and gravy, and waffles. It has good access to the freeway and is a few minutes drive to the wharf.

We were very satisfied with the price and state of the hotel. It was conveniently located and managed by a friendly staff. If we could change anything it would be that the breakfast was very sugar heavy. Too sugary. Also the second night we were there they turned on these very bright lights outside every door. They were SO bright we had to keep adjusting the curtains because even with just a crack it was keeping us up.

At the end of the first day I returned to find out that everything in my room had been taken to another room. No reason given. Very upsetting. At the end of the second day both of our access keys had been deactivated. No reason given. That night, about midnight, someone was banging on my door looking for someone. I went to use the phone to call the front desk and found the phone had been disconnected.

My wife and I, had a 1 queen bed room. Sheets and towels were very clean. Bed is on the firm side, but I prefer this as it is better on the back. There was a flat screen TV, and I was able to watch ESPN before going to sleep. WIFI internet worked fast. Front desk/concierge ladies were very kind and friendly. Pool and hot tub were nothing to be excited about. Our night was quiet, comfortable, and we had a great night's sleep. Overall great value and very close to downtown, cannery row.

"Not a disaster, but had problems."
Was initially pleased with pool, breakfast area, cozy looking room with clean smell-- then started finding problems. Possessions from previous occupant had been left in room and not cleaned up, including a bag of candy on a high shelf, and a bottle cap and a toy under the edge of the bed. The shower curtain was torn-- upon request, we were given a new one. The showerhead had a bulging o-ring and spat water out the side, and had been doing this long enough to grow mildew where the spray went. This was not fixed as quickly-- I asked the desk to see to fixing it, and they immediately sent a maintenance man to our room, but upon being told we weren't ready for him to come in and needed him to come back a little later, he never returned. Also, one of the coffee straws in the coffee-and-tea box had been chewed on and put back and was not replaced.
