My husband and I stayed here with our two German Shepherds for a weekend getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Monterey Bay Lodge which is conveniently located across from a park and the beach. The location was important to us as we had our dogs with us so we were able to walk them before bed and in... More

This is a convenient location for downtown Monterey and the Beach( just North). There's a lovely park on the West. The Pillows were terrible. The room was ok and the bed was comfortable. The Tv and fridge worked well. Seemed Very safe and secure.

This family hotel is in the perfect location to enjoy Monterey. Right across the street you can access the beautiful sandy beach, or pickup the paved walking/biking trail to the Wharf (shopping, restaurants). Rent a kayak less than a mile up the path, and enjoy a day on Monterey Bay where you'll be sure to see sea lions. Walk the... More

We stayed for two nights. The room had a queen bed, bathroom, and attached room with bunk bed for our kids. The room, while on the small size, was very well maintained and very clean. Front desk staff were very friendly. Parking was adequate (we were driving a large pickup truck at the time). WiFi was fairly poor in our... More

I was very pleased with the friendly and helpful staff at the front desk. The room was very clean and quiet. I enjoyed the pool and hot tub which were warm and clean. Little extra touches were a surprise. I highly recommend a stay here.

Worst hotel I have stayed. I thought for $240 one night I was hoping for something better. As soon as you walk in to the lobby it smells bad, nice people in front office. The room had a nasty odor. The water in tub was clogged, the rooms with the bunk bed were so small. No air conditioning, two small... More

We got a discount of 20% on our room (two queen beds) having arrived without a booking after 7.30 pm on a Monday night. The room was pet-friendly and had a faint smell of dogs, but was clean and comfortable. We didn't seem to have aircon in our room or maybe we didn't locate the controls. I woke up in... More

My daughter and I had a very good experience at the Lodge. Centrally located, very well maintained grounds and room and the hot tub was very relaxing. We only spent one night (Wednesday) and got a better rate by calling, than what TripAdvisor offered. It was in a busy intersection, but the lake on one side and the ocean on... More
