5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very nice clean upgraded rooms. Free parking for vehicle. A 90 second walk from the Monterey fairgrounds. The TVs had Chromecast!!! So clutch. There was a Keurig, microwave, and mini fridge which was also super clutch. I was able to spend $0 on eating out while at Monterey Jazz Festival. I bought all my food at Trader Joe's, 3 days worth of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and there was plenty of space in the fridge for all my food. I am a vendor at the festival so not spending money on food can be a challenge. The staff was very friendly! They have a pool too but I didn't swim. Overall, I loved my stay and can't wait to return next year for the festival.

Me and my bf stayed here and we loved it. It's clean, has parking for your cars right outside your door, pretty rooms, and very close to dining options. Overall it's a really great place to stay I will say I didn't sleep very well since some lady kept laughing at 3 am next door but that's not on them 10/10 recommend.
