Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Navymom123 Nice location with walking trail.
We stayed here for three nights while visiting our son who is attending the nearby Naval Postgraduate School. Very nice, clean hotel. Excellent free hot breakfast, with slightly different choices each day, which is good for those staying several nights.
There is a small lake right in back of the hotel with a paved trail that encircles it, about 1.5 miles in length, I estimate. We enjoyed walking this trail every evening, and sitting on the deck overlook while watching the ducks and other resident waterfowl.
One of the front desk staff was very helpful when I could not get the printer in the "business center" to print our boarding passes. She went to the airline website on her own computer and printed the passes for us. Thanks!
Fresh warm cookies in the lobby in the evening!
Only complaint is the weird shower "enclosure" in the bathroom. It is a walk-in shower with no curtain or sliding glass doors, but just a glass partition that only covers the front half of the shower stall. The back half is completely open and water sprays all over the outer floor when you shower, even when we tipped the shower nozzle pointing straight down to the drain. When you put a body under the spray, well, the water flies all over. You step out onto a soaking wet bath mat and slick wet floor. We had to towel-mop the floor after every shower, because there is no way to keep the water in the stall. They need to hang shower curtains instead of this New Age minimalist shower design.
Other than this weird quirky shower, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel.

Great Holiday Location if the Intercontinental in Cannery Row is out of the budget. Clean updated style in the lobby and rooms.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KW 246 Didn't feel secure
2 females visited Monterey Bay Aquarium 3rd weekend of October 2015. The hotel is under construction. Our room was on the fourth floor back side off building facing estuary. My room was not remodeled. I woke up Sunday morning to a view of a homeless man who had made his residence on the bench of the gazebo directly below our room. Shopping cart,newspaper blanket. I feel for the plight of the homeless. However, when I am paying a hotel room in a resort area I want to feel secure in my surroundings. I forgot to mention the room of teens enjoying there late Saturday night of partying, As a frequent Holiday Inn customer I usually enjoy myself. Not this time.

The accommodations were great except for the sink. It did not drain well. Shower and sink drains not draining well is very irritating when traveling and I would like it to be a routine check on the housekeeping schedule. We shouldn't have to fish globs of hair and biomass from the drains to be able to use them.
Reception was wonderful and very helpful with recommendations on nearby amenities.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Not great but not bad at all
INTERNET IS NON-EXISTANT and is very important for me when travelling for business and with family.
Room was on the clean side. Breakfast was what you would expect, nothing more.
I travel for business 3-4 months out of the year, and with family a few weeks out of the year. Though I will not stay at this location again, I would recommend staying here if you're looking for a competitive rate only a few miles from many attractions.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by turnersn Just your basic hotel amenities
I've gone to Monterey over the past 15 years and stayed at various hotels. This hotel is just average and the noise levels outside of the room are horrible. If you're a light sleeper, pick somewhere else to stay. A simple roller board suitcase will be heard on the balcony outside your door.
