  • My wife and I went here as a stop on our honeymoon and have to say the hotel is stunning! Everything was lovely and staff can't do enough for you! My favorite part is the roof top spar. An absolute must if staying here as the view is probably one of the best you'll get of the bay and of otters! Would love to return and stay longer!

  • Much effort is made into making this hotel a very pleasurable experience. The ocean view room with Monterey Bay sea life at close range is unique and special and worth the price. Hotel is well run and management seems to put a lot of effort into providing top notch guest services.

  • Have been coming here for business the last three years and I have to say it is one of the highlights of my year. This resort absolutely checks all the boxes from the business traveler perspective and I am definitely going to bring the family back soon to enjoy as well.

  • We stayed here on a family vacation. Loved that the hotel is only a 10-minute walk from the aquarium. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was pleasant.
