The rooms are big and cozy but, you can hear the rooms next to you, and the hotel is not the one in the photo.

I have stayed here several times. I have enjoyed my stay but, this time the bed was terrible. I couldnt sleep. A week later, my back still hurts. The mattress is old and needs to be replaced. It is quite dissapointing because we stayed at the honey moon suite and couldnt fully enjoy our stay. We were trying to have a incredible weekend but, we ended up tired from lack of sleep and still had to drive 4 hrs home like this. Please change the mattress. I would hate for another couple to have to experience this. The historic hotel is quite interesting and beautiful.

Location is absolutely amazing for the price. less than 10 min to fisherman's wharf, 5 min from starbucks, Troias market right next door, ample street parking so you don't have to pay to park on the property. Walking down the street and you're already in the college area so there's a lot of coffee shops, parks, and small businesses to browse. Only con is how humid the room is but if you have a patio room you can leave it open to let the breeze in. Definitely gonna stay here again

Super sweet hotel, so charming, nice staff, super comfortable and clean. From the outside, the property looks like an unassuming apartment complex, but the rooms are just beautiful. Great décor, the room smells so fresh, comfortable amenities including bath robes, and my personal fave, fireplace!! And in Monterey it's always fireplace weather. Our daughter just started at CSU Monterey Bay and I would be very happy for this to be our go-to place to stay whenever we visit.
