This was my 8th Road tour, including Lewis/Clark. The food & presentations were excellent. But the logistics in getting there were horrific! I called Road to get info,but no help. My room was Spartan with filthy carpet. No clock, or radio. I'm not a camper & no warning. I was thankful for the use of a computer on the "free day" with no car. Road needs to get a better handle on the accommodations.

Road Scholar's response:
We are sorry to hear of the issues you had with the accommodations. To address your comments, we do have an off-campus upgraded accommodation option available on most program dates. The campus rooms are scheduled to be remodeled this month.

What fun the Best of Monterey was. So varied and fascinating.! Unexpectedly so. An actor portraying writers of the area, Joplin music, exercise, trips, science, magicians, and tasting. And of corse the coast and amazing aquarium. I loved it and am so refreshed.
