    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Interesting historic property with a lovely courtyard to relax outside. Very clean and comfortable room. The carpet in our room was a bit shabby.

      3/5

      • Liked: Staff & service
      • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

      Disappointed - not as advertised

      Overall disappointed - room decor was very outdated and looked nothing as advertised, mold in the shower, ants crawling on the bathroom vanity, no fire log in the fireplace, 3 attempts to contact the front desk after-hours throughout our stay with no avail (phone line went straight to voicemail), and very limited parking with small spots. However, the courtyard was attractive and quiet and morning front desk attendant was very friendly and hospitable. As this was my partner’s first time in Monterey and I was excited to treat them to a fun weekend on the town, this was not the first impression I wanted to make.
