Another Wonderful Stay!
This is our 4th stay here and we love it. I was going to write an in detail review about the hotel amenities etc, but realized many have already done so; instead I'll highlight the customer service and the two water view rooms. First of all, we have had occasion to interact with Stacey Lee, Director of Operations, and she is the upmost professional. She cares about our guest experience and personally has been involved in some of our inquiries and requests. The front desk and housekeeping staff are very efficient and attentive. We have not stayed in a Cannery Row room, so can not review those rooms. We initially stayed in a Harbor View room, and were upgraded to an Ocean View, so we wanted to primarily compare the two. The price difference between the Harbor and Ocean is not incredible. We usually opt for the Harbor View. However, since we had been treated to an upgrade to the Ocean View, I can say that if you want more privacy and ocean sound, spend the extra cash on this room! It's still so much more affordable and sometimes a better view than the upscale hotels down the street (know this from a previous stay at one of them). The Harbor View balconies are not out of view from pedestrians and beach walkers, whereas the (at least higher) Ocean View rooms are private. We really like both, and unless it is crazy busy and noisy on the road/beach, the Harbor View will certainly give us the ocean fix without too much distraction. Note: Rooms right next to the rooftop hot tub are a bit noisier due to folks going in and out of the locked door, and you can hear them while on your balcony. The parking is on-site under the inn (easy to get things in/out from your vehicle) and you are allowed to remain parked there for a few hours after check-out. This inn is more quiet than locations in the heart of Cannery Row and is located under 15 minutes walk time to either the Aquarium or Fisherman's Wharf. This is a quieter, more laid back, less pretentious option than some of the bigger hotels, but with the same great ocean views. We have only stayed on the 4th floor (per other reviewers' advice), so we did not experience overhead noise and was probably quite than lower floors. So you gotta ask yourself...do you want to spend BUCKS for fancy bells and whistles for your ocean side lodging or reasonable prices with awesome guest service at this smaller gem? If you want the perks and fancy lobby, but still want the same view, expect to pay almost double. We had a partial view at one of the big hotels. Yes, you could SEE the ocean, but it was not right next to the water and not private. We enjoyed the fancy restaurant and room service and grounds etc, but we were disappointed in the floor. Already booking our next stay!

We loved our 3 day stay here.
We loved our 3 day stay here. Staff was very friendly, professional and helpful. They provided us a list (paper) of great places to eat after we asked if about eateries. The room was very clean and set up nicely so the bed is facing the beach. It was amazing to wake up and see the water and beach. It is a only a few yards to the sand on a beach that is not crowded and also very clean. Everything is within walking distance, Cannery row, beach, Monterey historic park, aquarium, pier and the SEALS. The hotel is literally on the water, its smaller hotel but we enjoy that since it tends to be more peaceful and quiet . The bathroom was clean and updated with dual sinks! Made it convenient for us to get ready in the mornings.
