We were a group of 4 women. Very good location to cannery row. We loved the charm of this hotel and the front desk and valet were so nice. The coffee service was delicious! Boyd's coffee was very good. We would definitely come back.

I'm not the type to be writing these reviews but this place was amazing. I was there for a wedding and it was just so close to the venue we couldn't think of going anywhere else. It was serendipitous and a great find. My first time at this hotel and certainly not my last. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were like stepping into a time machine.We were in the Old Style wing and it couldn't have been any more accurate. The decor and furniture gave everything a classic aesthetic and really took my partner and I away from the modern world. Fireplace in our suite!? Very romantic. If you're looking for a step away from the modern life definitely check out The Monterey Hotel. You can't beat that location and the price. I'll definitely be coming back really soon!

The windows in the room were not fitted to the building, with visible gaps. We were kept up all night by screaming and singing drunk people on the street because it sounded like they were in our room.

So, aesthetically, this hotel is wonderful. The furniture reminded me of my grandmas house and is period accurate. The staff was extraordinarily friendly, in a sincere way, and the music in the lobby was lovely. We stayed in the Historic Fireplace room. It was really cute. Again, the furniture was period perfect and adorable. The fireplace was gas, and a little scary, but we didn’t blow up. Unfortunately, it didn’t do much to heat the room and we didn’t want to use the thermostat on the wall because it had no numbers on it. We went to bed and it was freezing. Turns out the window didn’t close all the way because it was stuck open, but the thermostat in the bedroom worked and heated the room up nicely. Had to turn it off in the night because it got too hot and we figured we were well done. It was clean. Nothing too fancy. Not sure if it was worth $270, but glad we stayed there.

We were in a street side room, the windows don't lock and don't block out the noise. It was difficult to get a good night sleep due to the noise and no ear plugs were provided. The room was clean and spacious.

We enjoyed the great location of the hotel and the historical features of the building. The rooms were clean, A few improvements would be parking and staff being more helpful. We waited over 15mins for someone to come out to valet our car but no one showed up? I ended up parking the car myself. We requested for 4 items to be delivered to the room and only got 2 of the 4 items correct.

Nice, traditional hotel, perfectly located downtown. Parking nearby in multi storey garage. Check in seamless and staff helpful and friendly. A short walk to the bay which has numerous shops and places to eat. A great way to see this beautiful town.

I hate that I have to repeat this story again. My granddaughter and I had a horrific time. I have been to this hotel before, and it was wonderful. I do not know what happened this time but is went wrong from the beginning. The key did not work, we had to go downstairs ot get a new key, that one did not work. We spent 15 minutes trying it multiple ways and finally got to work and the door jammed. Then we were so tired and got ready for bed and my granddaughter pulled the sheets back and they were all stained. I wanted to throw up and my granddaughter didn't even want to sleep in the bed at all. It took some convincing after we got clean sheets! I went over then with a fine-tooth comb and reassured her they were clean. Praying all the time. Then if the sheets weren't the kicker, it was really warm in the room and the portable plastic fan did not work once it was plugged in. I told my granddaughter I was sorry and did not report it because we just wanted to go to bed and wake up and leave! I could not wait for this email to give the survey and do the trip advisor. I just pray others don't have the same experience we did. Extremely disappointed beyond words.

I had a room on the front street, 2nd floor. No Air Con so windows had to be opened. No screens, loud driving traffic and trash trucks all night. There are better options within walking distance of this property. This property is extremely tired. Did I mention the 20” 30 year old box TV
