    This is a really tired hotel, the la k of a working elevator is the first clue to this and they need to spend the money they are saving on fixing that to renovate the rooms. Our room was very small, with two smaller comfortable beds with no headboard! The bathroom was so small your legs were wedged between the sink and toilet! If you are a light sleeper then avoid the rooms to the front as it is so noisy at night from the street that it took me hours to get to sleep. The complimentary ear plugs didn't help, and have you ever stayed at a hotel that had complimentary ear plugs!!! Breakfast was very poor. This wasn't a budget priced hotel so I'd recommend giving you money to be of the other hotels in Monterey.

    I loved this old hotel it was beautifully decorated with period antiques, the room was a little on the small side but gorgeous. The huge arched window with the fan shaped detail and the custom plantation shutters where very unique. You could even get a glimpse of the bay and the shoppers on the street. There were many restaurants nearby and a lot of shopping. There was an art and craft fair in the plaza nearby. It was a beautiful mile and a half walk to Cannery Row, we definitely got our cardio workout for the day. Three miles roundtrip and well worth the effort, great place to get away and just chill...

    There is no elevator, but they do have a young, strong bellman/Valet, more than glad to carry your bags to the third floor. :)

    Fabulous

    I liked the location of the Monterey Hotel. It is central and surrounded by restaurants and all the sites and happening of Monterey. The staff was helpful especially the very good-looking and warm people at the front desk. Good staffing there. I like the leisurely and relaxed manner of the hotel and the old look of everything.

    My bed was a little large for the room and it made noise whenever I moved, but we grew to love that, but were afraid the neighbors would complain. There was no iron in the room which would have been nice. Although, I can't see where I would have room for an ironing board.

    I liked the decor, especially the restoration of the turn of the century architectural elements/ I liked the friendy staff and attention to small details. When I see granola at breakfast I know that someone is thinking things through.

    Good location, nice compact room.

    The elevator was out of order and my room was on the fourth floor, no ref in room, no water, no drinking glass, squeeky bed.

    Fabulous

    The convenience of the downtown location. The helpfulness & accomodation of the staff & hotel (arranging breakfast time at 3 am so marathon runners could partake). The old building personality.

    We were quite happy with out stay

    Fabulous

    The staff were extremely helpful and friendly; they had no problem changing my room when I complained that it was too noisy. The location of the hotel was perfect, a walking distance from the Monterey Conference Center and the Marriott hotel (as well as the monterey airbus station).

    No elevator. The room was a bit cold and we could not personally control the room temperature.
