The gentleman manning the desk during the day seemed smarmy, though the rest of the staff was cool. This place has mosquitos and no screens and no AC, so you have to choose between stuffiness and getting bit -- not cool, given the premium price. They do have fans, but you don't know you need them until after 10pm, which is when the front desk closes. Breakfast is yummy and the rooftop bar is nice. Check-in is at 3pm, which I've never seen so late anywhere before. Take-away: GET A FAN, they have a literal pile of them in the supply closet. I saw them, in a pile, for some reason not deployed to each room. The expensive Dyson ones, too.

Nice looking room but comfort was not to be found... Prior to bed, ended up chasing mosquitoes all morning as their bite was relentless. Well this went on for about 2 hours and we had to decide, close the windows and suffer stuffiness or keep one window open and suffer mosquito bites and loud traffic. I tried to keep the curtain down to use as mosquito netting but that did not work. Mosquitoes kept coming into the room. Closing the windows was unbearable as it became so stuffy we thought we would run out of air overnight. We settled for one window open and moistened toilet paper as earplugs. I still do not know why they don't have screens on their windows. When I awoke, i had approximately 4 mosquito bites and was as tired if not more tired than when I arrived. Well after about 4 hours sleep, I was not a very happy camper as we had another 350 miles more to make it to Los Angeles. We skipped the complimentary breakfast and left the hotel early. Wondering with all the reviews how we could have missed the mark soo bad. You know is not a good night when you wished you went to a Motel 6.

This is not a hotel, but more of an eclectic B&B. The decor is interesting, a cross between "The Adams Family" and Salvation Army refuge. My wife, daughter and I booked a Suite. I guess they call it a suite because it has 2 rooms. The second room has a fold out couch for a bed, but when opened, a 1/3 of the room is gone. The dividing door is a sliding piece of veneer. The main room in the "Suite" has one window, maybe 2' X 4', that you have to step into the tub to open. That's right, the tub is in the room. You can see through the window shade, so closing the shower curtain on the tube is recommended. However, it is freakin' hot in Monteray in July, so you have to open the window and the shower curtain. There is no Air Conditioning and No Parking for the hotel. Of course, they do charge you CA room rates. When calling the Front Desk at 8PM for some help, we were greeted by a recorded phone message saying, "nobody is available right now, please call back." There is a great patio bar, with a nice view. However, when customers are moving furniture around at 1AM, it can be easily heard in the room below. My recommendation, save your money and stay at Motel 8.

Of course you are entitled to your opinion but not the facts! Our furnishing is all new in Beaux-Arts style, the sofa bed is high quality piece of furniture. The rooms are small and disclosed as such: Exact square footage is given. Changing furniture on the rooftop is not permitted at any time. This summer was very unusual summer in Monterey, we never needed air-conditioning in the past, we offered fans in the room, which have been very effective, wish you asked. We agree, if service and details to quality bedding and furnishing is not a consideration, this hotel is not for you.

This is a very unusual Hotel first of all and if you are into that sort of thing then by all means you will like it. First the Bad: There is VERY little parking close by. If you have a larger SUV or truck, you will need to park on the street as their 3 space parking lot will likely be too small for you. The street parking is limited in the day with lots of spaces being 2 or 3 hour until 6pm. There is no pool. I would not consider this hotel "kid" friendly, although I have no kids. The hotel is very old, and has small rooms and also the room I stayed in shook every time a car or larger truck drove by on the right hand side of the road. It also had some strange noises at night and they up-charged me for a room on the 3rd floor. The Good? Very unique and very nicely done rooms and amenities. It's VERY close to fisherman's wharf area. Also the bar/restaurant on the top floor is a nice little touch with very nice views and the staff are very friendly and a big plus. The bedding and bathroom are also "top notch" in my book.

First, the staff was friendly, the food was very good, the rooms clean. Room decor was minimal, public location decor eclectic. Loved the coffee & toast while awaiting breakfast, the evening offerings on the rooftop patio were 1st rate. The reasons we could not give higher ratings on the location and room were no AC & the traffic noise from the main road. Was quite loud with the windows open, and if we closed the windows, we quietly baked in the heat of our room. The fan provided moved the hot air around. Our bathroom window was a safety/security risk - and felt very unprivate as it opened onto another room's private patio. In spite of the beautiful view from the rooftop patio, and the great food, and the lovely furniture, the contant buzzing from the electrical lines was a bit creepy to me.

Thank for your kind compliments... Monterey is usually cool ans no need for air condition, however, this year we have unusual heat wave and we made fans available. We are a city hotel across the street from the beach, that comes with high traffic (a choice must be made). We made efforts to abate the noise (double windows each window is double glazes and other noise insulation). Sorry about your frustration but we will continue to address your concerns.

My friend and I were just passing through and needed a place to sleep so we were not expecting anything too fancy. Pros: The bathroom was huge and very nice. Staff very friendly. Complementary breakfast was good. Cons: The hotel is on a busy street - not much to look at. Had to park on the street because the back parking lot was very small and full. We stayed in room 203 on the side of the hotel and still heard cars passing throughout the night with the window closed. There was air conditioning (that we could find). I'm a light sleeper but was able to get past that. Above us it sounded like someone was dropping bricks every 20 mins or so.We were next to the emergency exit so I'm not sure if there was a utility room above us or what but we heard it before we went to sleep and as soon as we woke up at 7 AM. The room was very small - there was not much room for our luggage unless we were climbing over the furniture, but it was fine for the night. The beds were not very comfortable. Both my friend and I woke up with back pain. Would not stay there again because of this and the location. Would have preferred to stay in a nicer neighborhood.

Our stay in Monterey was wonderfully complemented by the excellent customer service, exceptional complimentary breakfast, and uniquely decorated lobby and rooms. Furthermore, Hotel 1110 afforded us easy walking access to Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. The ultimate perk: wine and appetizers while enjoying the view from the 4th floor bar.

When we drove by, we wanted to get out money back. Once we entered the beautiful front doors, we changed our mind. The staff and owners were wonderful and helpful. The rooftop terrace had lounge chairs and beautiful live plants and lighting. Our room was a little small but it has that european feel. The toilet was a Toto? The shower was nice with the jets down the front. Then the breakfast was in a beautiful charming room. I thought we were going to be invited for tea.. Everything was perfect.

Our one-night stay at Hotel 1110 was a wonderful experience from check-in to check-out. We had no trouble finding parking on a side street near the hotel and left the car there for the duration of our stay. Fisherman's Wharf is a lovely walk down the beach away, and from there a free shuttle can take you between the sights in Monterey. We returned to the hotel in time to enjoy a drink on the gorgeous rooftop deck, which is full of comfortable seating and space heaters if needed. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable, and the small size was offset by the deck on the roof and amenities in the room. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Every staff member was friendly and welcoming, from the bartender on the roof to the owners at breakfast. We frequently visit family in San Francisco, and will definitely be making a return to Hotel 1110 and Monterey.

Adorable little boutique hotel. Be sure to check in before 11 pm, since you'll get charged $25/hour past that time. Beautifully decorated lobby, and comfortable beds. Potential cons: The guest room that we stayed in was rather small and cramped, but would be romantic and sweet for a couple's getaway; The sink leaked, and both the sink and tub were slow to drain; Not the best soundproofing, as we could hear both street noise and other guests in their rooms. Nonetheless, the pros greatly outweighed the cons: EXCELLENT complimentary breakfast! We were served a delicious, filling, and beautiful breakfast in the cute little dining area. Additionally, the recently opened rooftop bar is amazing. The deck is relaxing, so well decorated, and very comfortable. Bathroom was overall nice -- great tub/shower and great fixtures. And the people that work at/ own Hotel 1110 were all delightful.

We booked this hotel for an overnight trip. A friend was getting married at the Monterey Plaza Hotel, which was too pricey for me. I called a week beforehand and asked about early check in. Check in is between 3:00 and 10:00, which was when we'd be at the wedding. The hotel staff was very accommodating and we were allowed to check in an hour early. The rooms are on the smaller side, but I wasn't bothered by it. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean, included a bidet, and had all of the basic toiletries available. The tub was a nice jetted tub/shower combo. There is a very nice rooftop bar with a view and an afternoon reception for guests. Unfortunately, we didn't have the opportunity to enjoy either as we were at the wedding. A complimentary breakfast was also included. Unfortunately (again), this is something we also missed out on. We decided to sleep in. My friend, who was also staying at the hotel, enjoyed it very much. The hotel was conveniently located off the highway. It was also a short drive to the Wharf and Cannery Row. I would recommend this hotel, and will also likely stay here again.

Hotel 1110 overbooked and I did not get a room. It was not for lack of trying. I arrived in Monterey for my conference before noon and went to the hotel to assure my room availability. I was advised by a person I now understand to be one of the owners that I could return and complete registration at 3:00 p.m. He noted my presence on the reservation with my name on it. As I promised, I returned from the first day of my conference at approximately 6:30 p.m. and was met at the desk by a woman who I now understand was another owner, expressed gratitude at my arrival stating she had spent all afternoon trying to find me another hotel. I quickly learned that, in spite of my early arrival, all rooms had been filled by their overbooking. In hotel parlance, I was being "walked" to another place which had a vacancy. Their place to "walk" me was over the hill to the south in Carmel, about 10 miles farther away from my conference location in Seaside to the north. I firmly recommend Hofsas House in Carmel. The room was clean, needed no repairs, had unusual furniture in a common sized room. The walk to Carmel's Ocean Ave shops and restaurants is very short. The website fairly describes it. There was no sort of compensation offered for my inconvenience.

We were very disappointed upon our arrival to the hotel. The room was the size of a walk in closet. It was horrible!

Hotel 1110 is a hidden gem. The exterior of the building hides the elegant comfort on the inside. My room wasn't too big, but it was big enough - and plenty comfortable. My favorite part was going up to the rooftop with a glass of wine and relaxing on their comfortable chairs. We even went up at night and had a fire pit all to ourselves. I will definitely stay here again!

Really exceeded my expectations. This is a family run business and they really care about their customers. Rooms were nicely decorated "boutique" style, tasteful but not over the top tacky. The roof top has great views and lots of nice comfy seating or tables for parties. They do happy hour every day in the lobby with a free drink and apps. The most AMAZING part of it was their complimentary breakfast! It was fancier than any other complimentary breakfast I've ever had... coffee, juice, greek yogurt with nuts fruit and honey, and stuffed fresh toast with fresh berries and sausage. DELISH!

Our experience was wonderful. It has the feel of a European style boutique, and we will be back.

We were expecting the few drawbacks that we experienced regarding the hotel but the amenities made up for the drawbacks. Staff was fabulous, breakfasts were fabulous. rooftop area was fabulous and the location was perfect. We were prepared for the lack of parking on hotel property (there were plenty of places on the street). The room was a bit small and needed some minor repairs but nothing that was a huge issue. The most annoying thing was that due to the lack of lighting, you couldn't see into the closet area or it was difficult to get the key into the lock -- we used the flashlight on our phone. We would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. This place is run very poorly and has very poor service. For one, they have a requirement that you check in at 10pm. While our party did arrive by this time, another guest did not. We were alarmed to hear loud knocking on the door and the loud ringing at the front desk, which persisted for >45 minutes and which was completely not attended to. Not only did the hoteliers abandon someone to their front door, they also made for a very uncomfortable experience for their guests. They have an "emergency number" which is for after hours. However, they do not answer this phone (there is only a voice mail.) When I tried to mention this to the management in the morning, they became very hostile and aggressive. They quality of customer service is therefore very alarming. You will have a better time and better experience if you stay elsewhere in Monterey.

I booked this hotel because I wanted a bargain; we were in town for just tow nights. I want to first say, the staff at this hotel was lovely and very accommodating and though the exterior looks very rough, the interior was nostalgic and quaint - like stepping back in time to an older, European Inn. The rooftop terrace was also nice, despite the traffic noise (do not stay on Del Monte unless you can cope with traffic noise). There are partial views of the ocean and the space itself is well-kept. The hotel offers a breakfast, but we never tried it since service started at 8 AM and were were generally out and about by then. Regarding the hotel room, I cannot say very many positive things about the room I stayed in, except that it was clean. It was very small, which was fine since we didn't plan to be in there for more than sleeping. However, the walls were very thin. I could hear our next door neighbors very clearly while I was in the bathroom - very uncomfortable realization when that happens. The bed was miserable. Each morning, my fiance and I woke up very sore and not well-rested. There was no climate control in the room, which is normal for Monterey hotels, however, the balcony (that looked into another wall) was shared, so we did not feel comfortable leaving the door open at night. Overall, this boutique hotel is clean, but very average - not great, but not the worst I've stayed in. If you are comfortable with a 3-star quality hotel, this is a good pick for a bargain.

This hotel was a nice surprise. Very european in style with gorgeous rooms and a delicious breakfast in the morning. We didn't have time to enjoy the bar or the amazing rooftop deck. Only drawback is busy street with lack of parking and thin walls. But we would stay again when visiting Monterey!

First off let me say, the exterior will make you second guess your reservation. But, the interior of the hotel is a European boutique. The owners(sorry I cant pronounce their names) are fabulous. Extremely friendly and helpful. I missed the breakfast because it is served beginning at 8 and I departed at 7am. My room was very clean and spacious. I loved the fact they had wood floors instead of carpet! I was in room 305. I had no noise issues from other rooms. The bed is more firm than I am used to but, the linens are great. I loved that the Jacuzzi tub is not in the bathroom as you can relax and watch your show and the fireplace from the tub. So back to the exterior. You are just shy of a mile east of Fisherman's Wharf. Easy flat walk to the wharf. The roof terrace has lots of comfortable seating and a view of the bay. Now if you are a coffee drinker that needs coffee in your room, they do not have in room coffee.

This hotel quite literally made our stay. I was almost disappointed upon pulling up because the building looked undistinguished and unkempt and the parking is confusing. But when we entered it had a feeling of old Hollywood chic and I was in love! The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and the accommodations were amazing! They have a complimentary happy hour (a free glass of wine or beer) during 5pm-7pm, free movies available to watch (mostly older titles), a delicious complimentary breakfast, a gorgeous top floor patio overlooking the ocean...I could on and on! The only complaint that I can make is the rooms do not have an in room temperature control system. Since there is no AC in the room, we left our window open which made it difficult to sleep soundly. The hotel is directly off a fairly busy street (Del Monte) so we heard a fair amount of noise. Besides that, I loved this hotel and would stay here again!

The hotel staff is very friendly. Breakfast was included in the cost of the room and was delicious - portions are not that big but it's enough to get you going for the day. Roof top balcony has a great view of the bay. Traffic on Del Mar Ave is constant though and it's not that quite. Close enough to the wharf to walk (about 1mi). Room was small but we weren't there much anyway. I would recommend this hotel.

The hotel is charming - very European in terms of lobby, breakfast room, size and decor of bedrooms. I don't need a huge room, so small isn't horrible to me. The owners (I assume were the staff) - were very lovely, just the right bit of friendly but not invading your space. They served a nice breakfast in the breakfast room and we enjoyed a complementary glass of wine at the small lobby bar in the evening. Their is a roof bar/lounge that has a very nice view.Also, the room and bathroom were immaculately clean - that is a big deal for me. I don't like tired or shabby. The bedroom had a wood floor, which to me is nicer and cleaner than carpeting that is full of dust and dust mites. OK - downside. The bathroom off of our small (12 x 12) room did not have a proper door on it. It had a door on runners - but only the top runner worked, so you slid it in front of the opening for the door. To me, this did not provide the kind of privacy that I want when using the toilet. Part of the reason that my husband and I are happily married is because we are couth! Ironically, the bathroom had a fancy toilet seat that acts as a bidet - but was not working, and a fancy shower that has not only a showerhead, but body spray. I would have preferred a real door to the bathroom. I

Arriving as seeing the bland outside, the lack of parking and a tiny driveway to the rear (do not use it for parking) we were not sure what we were getting into. The lobby was pleasant although small and had a bar with room for 5-6 people and then seating around the lobby. When we went to our room disappointment was immediate and my wife felt this was going to be a horrible two days. The room was small, the view was of the wall of the building next-door and it was bland and uninspiring. It reminded me of our hotels in Italy and with that in mind we began to enjoy ourselves. We went down for a complimentary glass of wine and then took them to the 4th floor roof which was spectacular, comfortable with a great view of the bay and the wharfs. The bed was excellent and the bathroom was spacious, clean and well appointed with jetted tub and spectacular shower. The breakfast in the morning was no ordinary continental spread that you commonly see nowadays, but rather a hand prepared individual breakfast (they set the menu each day) and everything was excellent. BEST OF ALL was the friendly staff, the owners were on site and assisting with any requests or desires, and Lance was working the bar and was an absolute delight (he will be shortening his hours when he returns to school in the fall) and Michelle was there on her first day of work and is an incredible hire for the hotel. They both entertained us, provided interesting information and made our stay a pleasure. WE WILL GO BACK.

You need to be aware that the location of this hotel...across from a tattoo parlor and on a busy street....does not give one a positive first impression. Because of this I was nervous about my choice when we first drove up. That being said the rest of our stay was great. The hotel is an older, small boutique type with a very eclectic style...crystal chandeliers, older quirky furniture...that all works well together and is fun to look at. The room we stayed in was towards the back and very quiet. It had a separate sitting area and two bathrooms. The bathrooms themselves were small but terrific with jetted showers and a separate jetted tub. Really clean and nice linens on the bed. The included breakfast was served in a charming small dining room with china and terrific food that changes daily. This hotel also has a roof top deck with lots of really nice seating options and at night they have heaters if it is cold which it was when we were there. You can see the ocean from the deck. Lance at the front desk was extremely helpful with dinner options and other information. The hotel location was convenient for walking to the harbor and really just about anywhere if you like to walk as we do. So if you like to try smaller, older boutique style hotels that are not run of the mill I would highly recommend you try this one!

We stayed her for our anniversary. My husband had called ahead to arrange for an extra surprise. The staff was very helpful and picked up some roses for the room and adenhome very tasty chocolate covered strawberries. The room was on the street, but with the windows closed it wasn't very loud. You could just see beach over the buildings across from us. The room was a little small, but cozy for a weekend getaway. The bed was comfy and the breakfast the next morning was delicious!! We will probably stay here again next time we're in town.
