We got a good deal on a room here through Priceline and it was a pretty nice hotel. It was set back from the busier parts of Monterey and it was really pretty, but still close enough to get to everything easily. The rooms were decent and actually pretty nice, but I don't think I would have liked it as much if I had paid full price because they were a little outdated and worn. Overall though, it was a pretty nice hotel. One warning though - you can really feel the building sway when it is windy. When we first got there, I thought we were having an earthquake because it was moving so much - it was a little frightening.
