          convenient location. Good value for money. Room comfortable and has recently been renovated.

          Some noise when water running in adjoining rooms. Somone was warming up their car in the lot for 20-30 minutes at 6:30am both mornings

        • Couple
          6.2

          Good location, free parking (but with limited space available).

          Room equipment a bit dated, poor breakfast. Air conditioner worked only as a fan (no cooling/heating) and it was really cold inside.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          the rooms seem some what updated , carpet and bedspread could be improved. The room was clean. No bugs. also no pets or smoking are allowed so that was really nice knowing no one had an animal in our room or smoked in it. higher rated on trip advisor than the rest on the same street. we booked again for a nite on our way back to SF.

          close and convenient to pebble beach, clean with nice water pressure in the shower.

          No coffee at breakfast!

        • Older travelers

          The complimentary waffle breakfast was very nice. Very attractive swimming pool, although too cold to use in April.

          Room was very small and crowded. Walls must be thin; we could hear the shower from the next room at midnight.

        • Single

          Room was better than the hotel looked.

          The restaurant attached to the hotel served horrible overpriced food..I.E. $25.00 for a mechanically stamped out piece of meat called a "steak" with a stale baked potato reheated by microwave with a few broccolli pieces (best thing on the plate). The "bread" was frozen pull appart wonder bread sort of things I have not seen since the 60'S. yukk!!!

          Bed was firm and comfortable.

          Lady at the front desk was rather unfriendly. Breakfast area was small with limited seating and when breakfast items were used up they were not restocked.

        • Single
          7.4

          It was affordable and had a convenient location. The maids were very helpful and did their jobs well. I appreciated having a microwave in the room too!

          The breakfast area was too full of people too often, and there was not enough seating. It was also really hard for me to watch the huge amount of plastic & styrofoam-ware (plates, cups, forks/spoons, etc.) sent to the trash every single day! There is no reason for that in this greener day and age, especially in progressive ca! It's as if the management has never heard that such items take hundreds of years to degrade in our landfills, adding even more plastic to our ecosystems....

          Good price, nice room, comfy bed with good linens.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Room was clean and updated; breakfast was fair; pool area was very nice.

          Breakfast could have more choice like fruit and yogurt.

        • Single
          8.0

          Rooms were newly refurbished and clean. Decent price for the area. Beds were comfortable. Even though close to the main road it was fairly quiet. I did take a fan to help block out noise as I always do.

          I arrived between 9 and 10. It took several minutes before someone showed up to help me so I could get check in my room. You will have to leave your key in your room if you have to catch the red-eye. There was no ice.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Cleanliness and spaciousness of room.

          Hotel staff was not friendly and unavailable in the mornings at breakfast. Breakfast room was too small and didn't offer many choices.

        • Older travelers
          3.2

          Nothing. It was a dump and needs a good cleaning up.

          Management unresponsive. Rooms dark. No chair, no luggage rack, breakfast sparse.

        • Family with children

          It was close to location that I was going to

          Swimming pool

          Staff not very helpful. We ebquired about Acquarium 2 days for the price of 1 and they had no forms and sent us to to the Acquarium who very kindly allowed us in.
