          • Older travelers

            Staff was attentive and was concerned that our stay was enjoyable.

            Room had stains in carpet and a couple of paper trash items also found.

            Location was good for our drive up the coast. Nice woodland view location, good meals and a great breakfast.

            Service was poor

          • Family with children

            The location is close to shops, drug stores and shopping centers. The accommodations were just a tad bit below our luxurious accommodations we experienced in Monterey Bay, but very comfortable nevertheless. The front desk was prompt with requests and very friendly. I would say the best thing would be the cleanliness and it being close to the freeway.

            The prices for the restaurant were very high compared to the quality of food. I ordered a charred steak and it was like cutting into a leather shoe. I've had better steaks at Sizzler.

            Since I cannot use this space for complaints, I will address those to the hotel itself.

            The cost of the breakfast was expensive for a family of 5, so we only ate there once. The breakfast ending time of 10a was too early for our family as well.

          • Family with children

            All the staff were super nice! We enjoyed the comfy room, the prompt room service, and the spiffy-clean surroundings. We would be happy to stay there again!

            The only things we would want to add would be... a bigger gift shop, and maybe some other fun stuff like a small arcade for the kids. Also at first the pool was closed, which made my kid sad! But then they opened it up the 2nd day we were there.
