Had a birthday weekend celebration coming up and wanted to be by the water. This motel is not on the water, but very close by foot to the pier and restaurants and the downtown area. Pretty spacious room with a refrigerator... but the bathroom was a little dated. The pool was heated and the hot tub just right. A real... More

First, kudos to the staff for being very responsive to email inquiries. I had several back-and-forth emails when my schedule changed, and they were responsive and helpful. Like many of you reading this, I rely on fellow traveler reviews when choosing hotels. There aren't many large name hotel brands in the area, so I seemed to do extra research when... More

We stayed at this hotel for the 2015 Big Sur Marathon. The staff, specially the night staff, was very friendly and helpful. They really made us feel welcome. The pool and spa were perfect for relaxing after the race. The location is close to all attractions, in front a beautiful lake and cross the street from the beach. The restaurant... More

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
