Close to everything downtown and you're right next to Fisherman's Wharf. Staff were professional and very accommodating. Spa services were great. Construction was going on outside for their conference center so you have to walk around it a little bit but inside you couldn't hear it from where I was staying along Pacific Street.
Location was good, close to the wharf. Our one and a half year old daughter found a pill (presumably from a previous guest) in the room and ate it. We rushed her to the ER and thank goodness she was okay. Guests with kids should be aware of this danger.
Power was out, and even though it's not their fault, I wish the staff did more to make us feel welcome.
I love the decor of the bathrooms and the bedding. That the elevators were broken.
I liked the overall comfort of the hotel. I did not like the service. I asked for a bellhop to help take my bags to the car. I waited for about 25 minutes and decided to take the bags myself.
my kids loved the pool and hot tub.
The guest rooms are large and nicely appointed. The bed is comfortable. Breakfast is very nice in Jacks restaurant. The entire staff is quite accommodating. We've stayed here many times in the past and will continue to stay here. Our room was in a noisy location--on the second floor overlooking an open area where people walked, sat, rode bikes, played music and generally enjoyed the outdoors. The windows were not double-paned and the room was noisier than we would have liked. The bathroom was remodled with a lovely marble countertop--unfortunately it was rather tall for me to use (I'm a 4'11" woman.)
Location and price
Price Outdated hotel.
Amenities and style of room During my stay there was construction being done to the hotel, normally that wouldn't bug me except they put me right next where it was and since I sleep with the windows open, constructure woke me up super early in the morning. Even with the windows closed I could still here it. I was on my anniversary with my way during that day and it Kindof put a damper on my experience, especially since I paid over $200 each night I was there.
When I'm paying $1400 to stay 4 nights and get told that they can't possibly give me complimentary wifi or breakfast or ANYTHING... it's annoying to say the least. Interested in squeezing out every last cent possible while offering less in terms of amenities than most other hotels that are a fraction of the price.
We were pleasantly surprised with the gorgeous room that featured high vaulted wooden cross-hatched ceilings, a romantic fireplace and balcony, two showers, a comfy couch with huge wall mounted tv, and a cute little kitchenette/dining area. It was super close to the wharf which is a huge plus. They charged me for the bottle of water I took in the fridge so be careful. It's a trap!
Great location, friendly staff. We stayed as a family and our daughter loved all the beautiful flowers. Easy walking distance to the beach and Downtown Monterey.
it was a very nice room and very spacious. It was expensive and did not have air conditioning.
Rooms are very warm, inviting, and comfortable. Would appreciate it if you would install a Tesla charger (electric car) in your garage during your renovations. Tesla will give the wall charger to you upon request, you just have to install.
The grounds are very unique and allow for areas to relax outside. It is also close to Fisherman's Warf and the downtown area. I didn't like the fact that I kept finding items left by the previous guest in to room (i.e. wrappers, tags, debris, etc.). For what was charged, I would have expected more for breakfast. A Holiday Inn Express has a more comprehensive breakfast.
noise from street was awful
Very roomy, clean and close to fisherman's wharf. Walking distance to several restaurants.
my boyfriend and i loved the shower.. water got hot really fast and amazing water pressure. Our room was a lot larger than we had anticipated, which was great. It almost felt like a tiny home during our 4 night stay. We also loved how close it was to the downtown area and lots of good restaurants. Only 1 mile from the aquarium, we walked there and back. overall had a wonderful time at this hotel, we even stayed an extra night. I didn't like the continental breakfast. the first morning was ok, bagels muffins and fruit with coffee and juice was nice. But by the second morning i was over it. More variety would have been nice for the price per night at the hotel.
the property was nice, and appearance above average. The location was excellent, and adjacent to the historical downtown and the wharf. A mile to the aquarium. My concerns were with continental breakfast, which was included, and very inferior, with stale croissants, etc. also stingy with towels and linens in room. Silly.
It was pretty spacious and the front desk girl was really nice. Room wasn't the cleanest, and the walls were really thin, you could hear everything going on next door.
booked the suite and hence was quite spacious for a family of three. breakfast was continental but had some hot stuff like oatmeals and was ok to take back to room and eat with the family. Parking was extra which was not revealed till we checked in. a stiff $20 per day per car. which given other hotels were not charging, felt like nickel and diming
Location was perfect. Close to all restaurants. Noise level from above room and street noise. Also, pictures on website make this hotel look amazing when it's not.
The valet was super nice and helpful. The young woman checking me in was friendly as well. I was happy with my stay
Centrally located allowing us to explore Monterey It is tired.
Not able to park my own car
As we were checking in, we were told that we had signed up for two queen beds. As this was the one night in over 4 years that we got to spend together without her kids, I had made sure when I reserved the room it was for a king bed. After 10 minutes of negotiating, the lady at the front desk assigned is to a wheelchair accessible room with the king bed. Paying $400+ for the night, we were not very happy with the type of room we were assigned to. The bed itself was very uncomfortable. The mattress was very cheap and sagging on each side. The pillows were made of practically nothing but air. To add to the lovely stay, at 1:00 am we were awoken to the the fire alarm going off and loud flashing blinking lights in our room. The entire hotel had to evacuate and after the fireman came to turn the alarm off, we went back to our room. It was safe to say at this point we wouldn't get much sleep. As we complained to the front desk about our stay, they apologized and offered nothing to us. I will NEVER stay at this Marriott again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Location was great! 1. Your ad said I had two options for this type of room: City view or Ocean view. I clicked on city view. In reality, I got a room on the second floor and a view of the building next door and the Subway down the street. VERY misleading ad and application form for your room. 2. I was given the option of a King or Double. The room was for my partner and I so I was hoping for a King. I've never received a double booking as a couple but this time I did. I called front desk to change my room when I got upstairs and they said I never specified King. Your website doesn't give a very obvious space for me to specify King though. 3. The room I was placed in was next to the weight room. It was loud because when people work out, they lick to drop weights which makes a lot of noise. This did not making sleeping very easy. 4. I tried paying for the internet but kept getting error messages. I'm good with computers and I'm certain this was a network issue and not a user error on my part. In short, I didn't get the room I expected, it was difficult sleeping at night bc we were so close to the weight room, there was no internet, and I don't understand how the front desk said I should have specified King bed when your online app form doesn't give me a space for that. I won't be staying at the Marriot any more in the future.
It was noisy
Good location. Windows and walls thin, you can hear everything outside and in the rooms next to you.
management friendly and helpful. Had problem with new key system. Door would not stay shut and locked from outside, only when inside. Reported to management, but was not fixed in the two day we were there.
Clean and well maintained Breakfast food choices could be improved
The housekeepers added extras that I appreciated. Excellent location They charged more than their quoted price - $119 vs $99
The breakfast was welcoming and substantial. Also the staff at desk in the morning was cheerful and helpful. Room had everything and was clean. Bed was very comfortable. Definately a good value for money hotel to use as a base to explore Monterey and surrounding area. Was on busy road but we were aware of this.
It was close to an event in which Mary wanted to participate. Everything worked. It was your quintessential no frills businesslike chain motel. It was cramped and poorly accessible.
close proximity to everything noisy! night traffic was terrible. they added a safe warranty cost and tourism cost to the price. We did not use the safe.
Situation It was definitely too noisy. Too close to a heavy traffic road.
It was very clean and comfort. If they have any discounts for visitors for college students.
The Travelodge was charging $89.99 per night for the room I stayed in. You charged me $110 which I thought was the best price available.
It appeared the valet used my car for personal use. Found papers in the front seat of my car not belonging to me when I picked up my car after my stay. Very concerning.
The customer service was amazing and the room I picked was smaller than I thought and they upgraded me for free and the new room was amazing and we had a great time there!!! It was close to lots of sites we visited and we had a great trip!!!! I didn't like the stairs and the elevators were far from the room due to the fact that we have to pack a lot because we have a baby but the bell hop helped us and they accommodated our every need!!!
The staff were very courteous. The hotel decor and history. There was a farmers market on the street in front of the hotel. There was some minor damage on the bathroom counter. Just an eyesore, nothing major. The tv was old but it worked fine.
The Monterey hotel is beautiful located close to everything. Parked our car and walked all weekend. The room was very spacious and romantic. Tub for 2, fireplace and great view. We could hear the seal lions from our bedroom! Elevator is out of order and had to climb to the 4th floor. After a few time this was not so much fun. Reminded me of the Big Bang Theory!
The hotel had an excellent location only a short walk from Monterey Bay and the wharf. Although a bit shabby, the hotel has a charming feel. The staff was helpful and friendly. Both the room and bathroom were uncomfortably small. Other than the bed, there was only one small uncomfortable wooden chair to sit on. No microwave or refrigerator was provided. The worst problem was the noise, both day and night, which made it impossible to get a good night's sleep. Between the trash trucks, the squawking sea gulls, the late night party goers, and street construction peace was not to be had. And, because the room was not air conditioned, the windows could not be closed.
The most polite, friendly, and helpful staff I have encountered at a hotel in awhile. The hotel itself was located in a perfect spot in town with lots of food places and stores close by. The fact the this hotel has such a historic history, being that it is 112 years old, made it all the more fascinating. Loved everything!
Great location and easy walking to all things Monterey. Old boutique hotel with no provided parking.
clean & quite. great central location! less bulkier furniture in the room so a small table & chair can be accommodated. one can't sit on the bed at all times!!
Absolutely charming historic hotel located in the heart of downtown Monterey! 5 minute drive to the aquarium and a five minute walk to the beach and Fisherman's Wharf. Stayed two nights with our young family with 3 kids, and they loved every bit down to how they folded the napkins and toilet paper prior to our stay. Breakfast was overflowing with ripe strawberries and Boyd's coffee, and the staff dug up a corkscrew to keep and some wine glasses so we could enjoy our bottle from wine country. All in all, wish we could have stayed longer, and very pleased with its prime location and roaring 20's charm. Parking was slightly challenging but we were always able to find some spots on the street.
Location was a block away from the wharf with restaurants and shopping nearby everywhere. Hotel was beautiful with historic architecture and vintage furniture Walls were thin and you could hear your neighbors' movements
The best features of this hotel are the location and the history of the hotel. We enjoyed the bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. The continental breakfast was good. The furniture, while antique and ornate, was large and bulky in the small rooms. It is not a comfortable place to stay, with little space to maneuver around. The television (which was nearly as old as the room itself) was hidden in a wardrobe that couldn't open all the way because of the california king bed. Therefore, only one person laying in bed could actually see the screen. There was no desk or workspace in the room. The hotel acknowledges the paper thin walls and provides guests with earplugs to block out noise from other guests and the streets below. The overall experience at the Monterey Hotel was fine, but I only recommend it because of the location.
A bit noisy due to street area
Staff were accommodating for our later than planned arrival. When we presented the challenge of having an unstable toilet we were promptly offered a different room to try which had it's own wobbly toilet. The free breakfast consists of fresh fruit, cereals, juice, and coffee. All were fresh. Overall the staff were friendly. Fixtures and fittings are not well-maintained. We tried multiple rooms and found more than one with loose, wobbly toilets. Some had flickering fluorescent light fixtures with bulbs nearing the end of their lifespan which should have been changed. The window coverings on the entry doors didn't prevent passersby from seeing inside the room when lights inside were on. Televisions are ancient both in the room and the breakfast area. The wood-burning fireplaces are a nice touch but without any fireplace tools available in the room it made shifting logs a creative challenge.
lovely room decoration, room space; location; quiteness; reasonable parking fee. none
