We stayed in a King Fireplace room facing the pool. Our room was a beautiful renovated spacious surprise! Located on the outskirts of Monterey, but close enough to walk about 15-30 minutes to the pier and the downtown hub to shop. We walked home from the pier at 11pm and felt very safe. Lots of tourists out and about. Piece... More

This hotel is perfect located close to the beach and not so far away from the pier. It took about 10 min to walk down to the pier where you will find a lot of restaurants, bars. There are also the boats who takes you out on the wale safaris. An amazing experience, once in a lifetime. Back to the... More

This is not a fancy place by any means, but it was clean and neat and had all the amenities we needed. The gas fireplace functioned well. Plenty of hot water for showers. Front desk staff was very nice and helpful. The parking is actually really good (at least on the side we stayed on) - you get an assigned... More

We were travelling with our small dog. The room we stayed in smelled super doggy and did not seem clean. The carpet was damp. It was kind of disgusting. I mean, the smell kept me awake. Never again. Well, TripAdvisor says my review needs 35 more characters, so OK. For those travelling with dogs: there is a tiny, fenced-in dog... More

This was our second visit to Monterey and this time we wanted to be closer to Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery row. We chose Monterey Bay Lodge mostly because of the location but the price was also reasonable. About $175 for a weekend night. The first night we did not have hot water and took cool showers. We found out they... More

Parking horrendous. First room so small. We upgraded.. Big bucks. I couldn't sleep because the lights reflecting on the mirrors. But, obviously, I'm a poor sleeper On the other hand, staff was. Wonderful, great location, very dog friendly. Coffee shop is convenient for quick breakfast.

Denis the Menace park, pond, trail, dog park, skate park and baseball feilds all across street. Beach is a block away. Neighborhood surrounding was okay, no problems and I felt comfortable walking around... More

On a road thrip through California in January and we decided to stop off in Monterey. The Bay Lodge was the firts motel that we came across and it looked good. IT was late at night, but we just drove in. Reception desk guy was lovely, the room rate was amazing for a drive in, about $80 I think. Room... More

First I want to say that I am a picky person about where I stay on vacation. I usually stay in vacation rental homes. I found this by word of mouth and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are updated although the facility is older. The rooms are clean and neat and had everything I needed. A microwave, fridge, coffee pot... More

A comfortable lodge that comes with necessary amenities. Clean, spacious & comes with fireplace. And you can opt to have rooms at ground floor where you can just park in front of your room. Good location, comfortable rooms & value for money!
