    The Hotel is in a fantastic location and with reasonable rates and a good restaurant. Good for families.

    My daughter cut her foot in the Hot Tub, which has some chipped tiles in it. I had expected some compensation, even a toy or something for her, but nothing.

  • Older travelers

    Convenient access highway 1, Monterey (Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf, etc.), basically all local attractions, etc. Right on the beach which we enjoyed walking the three mornings we were there.

    Charging for parking, which seems to be the thing in Monterey.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    We (husband & myself) stay here 2-3 times a year. Absolute best location for beach/swimming/food. 3-5 mi. drive to Fisherman's Wharf or Cannery Row for day trips. Just slightly farther to Carmel. If you just want to veg-out this is the place! Stay all day on the beach,or in room w/great ocean view & order room service. Sit in the bar w/ocean view, or by the fireplace.

    Cheap toilet paper, could be cleaner, but all in all a great place to stay.

    Great location great ocean views very nice lobby, great food in restaurant

    Had to wait 2hours to get our.room

    I liked the veiw and the beach access being so close. I love them being pet friendly. I wil return with my pet.

    The snack machines did not work, and the coke machine said it was a $1.50, but did not give change. This is no big deal, there are lots of places close by to get snacks.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Friendly staff, close to beach.

    It lacks security being its proximity right on the beach where as anybody can enter the Hotel without being checked by security.

  • Family with children

    Location is really on the beach, so "ocean view" rooms are very near the beach. Unfortunately the weather was cloudly and w edidn't enjoy the ocean view so much.

    Small room with mildew smell; the added bed for our son was a camp bed, dusty and with ripped linen. Water bottles too expensives.

    the location and ambiente

    The restaurant was cloosed

  • Group of friends

    The hotel receptionists was very helpful and welcoming during our one night stay. Location was on the beach which was beautiful. That's what I loved most about it, particularly after a hectic fortnight of travelling. A great place to chill out before returning home to England. It was my first time being beside the Pacific Ocean! Rooms were comfortable and clean. The swimming pool area is sheltered by hotel from the wind and felt warm (but didn't go in the water). Being on the northern edge of Monterey it was a long walk down the beach towards the town and waterfront - you need transport if you want to go into town for measl or nightlife.

  • Couple
    10.0

    I think the design of the rooms match the excellent location of the hotel. Also, they have taken into consideration of supplying amenties such as decking chairs to take advantage of its excellent location.

    I did think the cost of food at the restaurant was a little expensive especially when guests don't want to venture out and just want to eat dinner in a less formal way.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Every thing met expectations. Service was great.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    The lobby area with seating and view were very nice.

    The rooms were small and had a mildew smell to them. They were not all ADA compliant which made it difficult when you're traveling with handicapped family members. The food and service at the cafe was also not good for the cost.

  • Couple
    6.6

    I liked how they were on the beach, but it was unfortunate we had dreary weather and couldn't enjoy the view.

    I had heard great things about this hotel, and I found it to be just fair. The staff was great, so no complaints there at all. We had chosen a garden room, and that equated to having a potted plant in-between our door and the plexi-glass barrier to the hotel. Obviously they have no control over the loud children in the pool, but it was noisy where we were located. It may be me, but I have issues with hair and mold spots in bathrooms, and I found a number of hairs and such in the corners of the bathroom (which was very small) so I was a bit queasy. The bed was very uncomfortable, and we were woken up very early in the morning by someone banging on a door close by with a loud walky-talky, so I'm not sure what happen (but it wasn't a joyful wakeup personally). I've never stayed in a BW in the US, but I have stayed in BWs in various locations in France and they were pretty nice, so it being an American chain I expected the rooms and such to be a bit nicer. I don't plan on going back to Monterey, but I still wouldn't chose to stay there unless the room rate was reasonable in comparison to other hotels. Needless to say I was very happy to leave.

    Comfortable beds. Great ocean view.

    There was an error in our booking though this site, whereby I selected a double room with two double beds (as we had our two children with us) but this request got lost in translation and we ended up with a room with only one double bed. This meant we had to move to the either side of the hotel, away from the ocean view. The receptionist (who wasn't in the least apologetic about this) "kindly volunteered" that we'd only have to pay the going rate for this new room, but could upgrade the following night to our original room at the increased tariff. We negotiated a discount for the incvonvenience, although I think it should have been offered, not asked for. I also thought it very poor that guests are charged to use the hotel's carpark. Yes, it's in a prime ocean- front location, but surely a simple token in the windscreen should suffice to show which cars belong to guests and which are beach-goers.

    Incredibly easy to find if you're coming from out of town. The hotel is right on the beach so an ocean view room is exactly that! Restaurant onsite offers plenty of variety.

    Our room was quite small with an odd motel bathroom set up (I.E. wash basin and mirror in an annex in the main room). Secure parking isn't secure. Despite a barrier all cars are automatically given entry or exit access. Service in the breakfast restaurant was slow.
