"Ideal for whale-watching, 17 Mile Drive, Big Sur"
We loved this hotel. The receptionist was very helpful & full of local knowledge. The room was spacious, the beds were huge and very comfortable. The bathroom was big, stocked with shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, etc. The only downside about the room was that the weather was hot and whilst the hotel provided an oscillating fan, the room really needed proper air conditioning. The fan provided some relief but we were still hot.
Breakfast was included. The selection included cereals, fruit, pastries, cakes, things for toasting (the toaster was really slow) and a waffle-making area. The breakfast room was quite small and got very busy. One morning we got up early to go whale watching and it was fairly quiet. The next morning we got up around an hour later and just managed to get the last available table. After that people were coming in and leaving again as they couldn't get a seat.
The hotel is directly opposite a shopping complex with a Rite Aid, a Whole Foods and a bunch of restaurants. You can walk there from reception in under two minutes. You can drive to the entrance to 17 Mile Drive in about two minutes and drive to Old Fisherman's Wharf for whale watching in under 10 minutes. You can drive to the top of Big Sur - Rocky Creek Bridge & Bixby Bridge - in under half hour (unless you keep stopping to take photos, like we did).
We stayed for two nights on a road trip and wished we'd booked one or two more. Never got a chance to try the pool/hot tub, which looked nice.

My husband and I went to this hotel for vacation, the hotel is near the places we wanted to visit. The food was good, when everyone was having breakfast it was difficult to find table, but people ate fast so we didn´t have to wait long.

Getting off the freeway and to the hotel required us to make a U-turn. Then, to get out of the parking lot and go to the shopping center across the street required us to make a left turn at the closest light and then a U-turn to be going in the right direction to get to the shopping center! Very pleasant hotel but allow extra time to get anywhere in Monterey during your visit.

Smooth check in and check out. Room was larger than expected considering the price. Really nice amenities, such as soaps, shampoos, coffee maker, hair dryer and ironing board, etc.
Property well maintained.
