6.0 Okay
Vintage charm but rooms are so basic they miss the opportunity to make it special.
2.0 Poor
- Carpets haven't been washed in years (so the ground is covered in the oils left by others feet) - Rooms are incredibly small - Bad water pressure - Sink didn't drain well - Paint is chipping - Water randomly leaked in the middle of the night - Access to the hotel meant crossing a bridge between the newly updated Monterey hotel and the historic building. - Pillow cases smelled of perfume from a past guest.
8.0 Very good
Location, location, location! Close to fisherman’s wharf, on a Main Street with multiple food options. Easy to walk the dog. Only thing missing was AC, the room was a bit stuffy, even with both windows open and a fan (provided in the room) going.
2.0 Poor
Pros:Smallest room I ever stayed in. Staff was rude. Breakfast was bad. Rooms outdated
7.7 Good
Pros:Friendly, helpful staff. Great location, close to Fishermans Wharf and lots of restaurants.
Cons:Mattress was too firm for my liking
7.1 Good
Pros:The staff were SO amazing! They were helpful and kind and their customer service was just so outstanding! The lobby was very pretty and the spa and other facilities were absolutely perfect! The locationn was nice; five minutes from he wharf and downtown. I’ve never been that close before so it was nice.
Cons:The fan on the ceiling so loud I couldn’t sleep and too hot to turn off. The room smelled very bad and nothing helped. It was very very small for the price. The bed was incredibly hard. The socket in the bathroom didn’t work so I had to find an alternate one and all the others were awkwardly placed so it was hard to get ready in the morning. I was beside the stairs and I listened to loud noisy people run up and down them all night, especially children. My phone didn’t work the first night either. The loud fan also only had two setting apparently even th it clearly had more but only low and high worked. High nearly had it flying off the ceiling and low did nothing. It was very hot in the room; they even put a fan in the hallway on the second floor. I’ve stayed at cheaper hotels with larger rooms and more comfortable beds; the price, I think, is due to location.
4.0 Mediocre
Cons:They in the process of adding more room. But when they put you in the "historic" part of the hotel, it seems ancient. We were put above a cafe, very noise until 10:30.
7.1 Good
Pros:Beautiful Downtown, close to Fisherman's Wharf, and well-preserved and maintained building and rooms. Rooms are older and bathroom fixtures & layout could use updating, but the furnishings are antique, the bed was comfy, and the room was clean and neat throughout, and the place was quiet. It is located conveniently close to many differing restaurants, and of course the real touristy hotspots are only a few blocks away. Bring your walking shoes!
Cons:So the closest parking they refer you to is 4-blocks away and there is no guarantee that you'll park closer even at check-in as they have no "dedicated" on-street parking/loading nearby. There are stairs everywhere, so even if you ride the elevator up, once you get to your floor it's the old-fashioned "wandering" hotel with weirdly set up hallways and you go out of one building into others, and there are stairs everywhere! Only 3-5 stairs but railings are only on one side if at all, and there's no forewarning of that fact.
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:Good location, in heart of downtown. Parking can be an issue. Hotel could use an update.
9.7 Wonderful
Cons:A bit noisy due to street area
