We come down to Monterey every year for golf tournaments. For the past several years we have stayed at the Monterey Bay Lodge. The staff is great....we always ask for a particular room and never have had any problem. Our friends stay here too and we have a great time each year. The rooms are clean and perfect for what...

This is a wonderful small hotel/motel in a wonderful location right across the street from the beach and a short walk into town. Monterey is a very walk-able community and this is a great place to stay as you are steps away from the pedestrian/bike path that can get you everywhere. The hotel is intimate and cozy with all the... More

My daughter and her husband both stayed at the Monterey Bay Lodge earlier when they were in the area for a long-distance trail race, and loved it. They liked its location near the beach, near downtown, and with easy access to nearby running along the coast, and to the ultimate race they signed up for. They also liked their room,... More

We stayed at his lodge on a Sunday night. The place was quiet, with a number of vacancies. The room rate was low compared to weekend rates. Compared to other establishments in the immediate area, the room was a very good value for the price paid. If I had to pay the weekend room rate, I would give the lodge... More

I stayed in this property because of the good reviews it received, and was pet friendly. Where can I begin, yes they are pet friendly but what I discovered is that properties that state that have certain rooms that one must stay in which and in this case are the worst rooms on site. Depending on the property and how... More

For a motel, we generally don't have high expectations, however, Monterey Bay Lodge was well maintained, our room was clean, newly painted and comfortable beds. Our check in was efficient and the clerk was helpful in locating a AAA rate for our stay. As many other reviewers have indicated, this motel is in a great convenient location. Close to the... More

The gentleman at the front desk is really nice, rooms are comfy with amenities such as large fridge, microwave, coffee machine, very good internet access, etc., and the pool and hot tub were very relaxing. Highly recommended.

This motel is located within easy walking distance of the Monterey Wharf and a 5-minute drive from the Aquarium and Cannery Row. The buildings are 60's vintage and, as such, are a little cramped, but have been kept in very good condition. In addition to good wifi service, comfortable beds and nice flat screen TVs, each room also has a... More

Clean, friendly, next to a very good restaurant and Wi-Fi worked perfectly. Extremely comfortable bed good pillows! Also very near the sea in the middle of the bay. Good value considering location we felt. Would most definitely come back if in the area again

This place is outstanding. It is in a great location, the rooms are clean and efficient and the front desk attendant was very knowledgable and accommodating. The in the room coffee and microwave was great for our 5 am breakfast before going fishing.
