We enjoyed the experience, the...
Pros: Food & Service @ the Bar & @ the Restaurant. The ability to have a fire on the beach. Access to the beach. The sound of the ocean.
Cons: No firewood available or Smores and no one would go get any of this for us, even if I paid someone from the Hotel. My kids went to the gas station and bought their own wood and carried it back to the Hotel. I went out and found the Smores, which it turned out were available @ the same gas station fortunately.

Disappointed in everything but the...
Pros: The location of the property would be hard to beat! Right on The beach.
Cons: The staff was rude, uninformed and unengaging. When we asked for a manager they said they did not have one. The rooms smelled like mold and were dark and dank. We were super disappointed that they advertised s'mores for the kids, said they would deliver them to our room and did not follow through. Anytime we asked for help with something the staff members would say they did not know the answer and not even give eye contact. We felt for the price they charged that the amentities were not up to par.

I do love this hotel....
Pros: The lobby is beautiful and very welcoming, the bar is lovely. The pool is perfect, and the options for movie nights and smores fires on the beach were an amazing addition to our stay. We rented bikes and rode into Monterey and that was also another wonderful thing for us to do to enjoy the lovely weather. I really enjoy this hotel.
Cons: The exterior is getting a bit rundown, it could use a nice touch up. I came from Canada and the hotel over billed my by about $500 and it is taking a long time to sort out, which is really disappointing.
