We booked the night before by phone from Atascedero, and chose the upgrade for $5 to a room with fire and fireplace (great move). We arrived after the trip from hell, blow out on rental car on Pacific Coast Highway, no cell coverage, and no safe place to change tyre, and the spare being a 2 inch space saver, which didn't enhance the looks or handling of the Mustang, given the driving conditions that day. We booked in very helpful, efficient, but also human and caring. After a trip to the Airport to change the car, we returned to the Hotel, and asked at the Front Desk about where to eat. Vince (Vincent) was fantastic, he enquired what we wanted to eat, knew the area and and gave us his recomendation and directions, and we enjoyed the best Mussels and Scallops I have ever tasted at ""The Sandbar, washed down with a delightful Chardonnay. The next day we visited The Aquarium, booking our tickets through the front desk, Michelle was very helpful, even though she was balancing two phonecalls at the time. That evening we eat at the Monterey Fish House, again great food, Vince again was very helpful, booking the table, and wanted our feedback, so that he could help future visitors. The room was relaxing, very comfortable, and very reasonablly priced given its location. Wish we could have stayed longer, in this Hotel and this City, as both were a delight to stay in. We cant wait until 2012 to go back and hopefully stay longer.
