We got a fireplace room for us and our toddler. The room was clean and had everything we needed: microwave, refrigerator, the restaurant on site was good. There was plenty of space, comfortable, quiet, so close to everything! We will be back! Planning a trip soon for beautiful Monterey!

We booked a two room family suite for our two night stay in Monterey. The Monterey Bay Lodge was affordable, particularly for Montertey, with friendly front office staff and clean but old rooms. While our suite was clean, it was very small and the walls were very thin. We heard arguments next door, fights in the car parking area, and,... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a road trip from San Diego to Napa. It was lovely room, large, clean and perfect. Check in was easy and friendly, although the man on the desk took a couple of minutes to attend to me. The bathroom and coffee maker were clean which is always a good testament to the... More

The rooms were ok. No real view of the Bay. Not really walking distance to anything. My real concern is the restaurant. My husband got sick after a meal there. The next morning we played it safe with oatmeal and I watched the kitchen. There was a rag in the corner. They kept using it to clean the pans- over... More

We stayed in this hotel during November with our grand children and had a fantastic time. The check in was simple, the hotel grounds were well kept and the heated swimming pool and hot tub were a real treat for all of us. The location of the hotel is great - you walk less than a mile across the street... More

This motel was a very good find. On the one hand it was a relatively low cost solution, on the other, service levels were superb. Parking was available free and it was close enough that you could walk to the wharf and the beach. The restaurant closed early at 8pm, which we didn't realise. Yet when we walked in at... More

We stayed 2 nights at this nice quiet hotel. Clean, well looked after, good location for the beach, fishermans wharf, whale watching tours... All within easy walking distance. Only issue was the lack of air conditioning... It was very hot while we were there and there was only a small desk fan which was also quite noisy. Experience in restaurant... More

We stayed at this lodge for two nights while visiting Carmel in room 219. We chose this lodge because of value and location. The overall motel is an older establishment and various signs of wear and tear are apparent. The bed and pillows were fantastically comfortable and the room is clean. The bathroom towels on the other hand, need replacement.... More

We had a good time at this lodge, which if truth be told has more of a motel feel, which is fine. It is very pleasantly laid out, has a nice feel, and the staff were lovely. There's a nice park across the street, and Fisherman's wharf is a short walk away. Cannery Row and the aquarium are a few... More

I was skeptical because their rates were lower than any other I looked into. Our queen room was clean and fresh smelling(other dogs had been there). It was an easy 1/4 block walk to potty our two 60lb. pups. We will be retuning to this quaint place, just a long 15-20 minute walk to the two wharfs in Monterey.
