Our stay was amazing. The location is perfect and you are able to walk so many places.Staff was excellent we really only dealt with the evening staff and all were so friendly and helpful. We did valet parking which they have available. This was a little bit of a challenge only because of their awesome location.You have to park at the curb and bring your keys inside. Breakfast was also really nice. Only difficulty was getting the temp in the room right.

Fun for our Family of 6
The historic feel is both wonderful...and a little tight. But the atmosphere is worth the sacrifice of space. Even my kids could feel the cool vibe of how neat it was that a place that old was still around to enjoy.

Charming Hotel in the heart of historic Monterey
Charming hotel. Don’t forget it was built in 1904 so there are quirks here and there. Our room was simple and elegant. The tv is small, but that’s not what you’re here for. Large old fashioned wooden shutters open up to windows that look out over the bustling street below. So fun to people watch! Incredible location. Adorable little coffee shop within steps. Walked to Fisherman’s wharf within a few minutes, Cannery Row within 15 minutes, and nightlife just down the street. Staff was friendly and accommodating. My biggest complaint was that the walls were a little thin. There are more luxurious options but this hotel felt like we were really in the heart of it all. Would definitely recommend!
