Loved our stay at the Monterey Hotel!
We stayed at the Monterey Hotel for the Big Sur Marathon. Perfect location for all of the events. Near everything in Monterey (the restaurants and shops, the waterfront, etc.). Loved it!

Disappointing: pictures look nicer than room was.
Cramped room, no place to sit down, dated & dirty. TV had few channels, no comforts found in any modern hotel.

Beautiful location but little sleep
The Monterey Hotel is a lovely hotel, in a fantastic location for visiting downtown or, in my case, attending the Next Generations jazz hotel. However, the tastefully decorated room was not a great place for sleeping (despite the king-sized bed that occupied almost the entire space). Pillows were strangely lumpy, and the "window" opened to an outside stairway with strong lights on all night. The shutters were attractive and appropriate in terms of decor, but did little to block the light. Beyond the lack of anything like a view, the light through the window gave me no clue about whether it was night or day... it was just as bright at midnight as at noon.

The only draw back of this hotel is the parking...it’s lousy! However there are a couple of public lots close by.

Good 6.0
We stayed in historic part of hotel at two rooms for two nights. The rooms are extremely small. There is a bad smell inside bathroom. The furniture is old but looks good. No heating or cooling facilities inside the room. Just an old noisy fan overhead. The crew are polite and nice at all. Neighbourhood is wonderful.
