We stayed here after we went to the Monterey aquarium. This is just your average residence inn, but the staff here is incredible the most helpful and accommodating I have ever seen. The room was clean but slightly dated. The breakfast was nice with really good choices.

I stayed here several times for business. Housekeeping changes the shower liner the night before I leave and cleans the room really well. I think that the following guest gets the same shower liner. The sheets and pillow cases are not fresh and look like they have been slept on. Dirty, stained comforters. The roll away beds are disgusting. Stained...

This review is based on the the response by the Marriott management after I initially filed a complaint in August. After going back and forth for about 3 weeks, someone got in touch with me and settled the issue. I was refunded for my night's stay after all the trouble we had with the reservation. I appreciate that. It's unfortunate...

The only reason why I am giving this hotel two stars rather than zero is because the front desk staff were so nice and accommodating. We stayed here for a weekend while my daughter attended a softball tournament. We stayed in a two bedroom suite, which are usually nice and spacious for my family. When I put my ten month...
