Waves crash against the Monterey Bay’s craggy coastline outside the Cannery Row Inn, where visitors cozy up to flickering fireplaces in spacious rooms located within walking distance of San Carlos Beach. Wanderers can dive beneath the covers of a cozy king-size bed, or move to the bathroom to—like the most resourceful ancient Greeks—build magnificent fortresses using nothing but pillows and complimentary hand towels surrounded by majestic marble and granite accents. Bubbling pots of organic coffee complement the fireplace’s comforting crackle, which casts a gauzy glow over guests admiring Monterey Bay’s roiling whitecaps from a private balcony. Come morning, chefs whip up a breakfast bar consisting of warm and cold dishes such as fresh bread, waffles, and sliced fruit. Vacationers can unwind beneath a satellite TV, surf the Internet on the free WiFi, or surf imaginary waves on their room’s ironing board.

The staff at Vickers Auto Rental and Repair knows that most people don’t have a contingency plan for when their cars break down.

This level of customer service epitomizes all of Vickers’ repair services, whether techs are simply aligning wheels or overhauling the transmission. Technicians can fix a range of foreign and domestic makes and models, allowing them to tackle most vehicles that are brought in for repairs or that are left in the lot after the qualifying round of a monster-truck derby.
