We couldn't be happier. It's very chill. Not fancy - but neither is Monterey. Just on the edge of the action. Tourist area is an easy walk. Our room is clean, reasonably priced and has a terrific view. The staff couldn't be nicer. The price is beyond fair. No complaints other than the internet being a little sluggish. Make mine... More

OK, it's not the Ritz. The property is somewhat dated and could stand some up-grading. But, then they would have to charge the outrageous amounts those other places charge and then it wouldn't be special any more. We had reservations elsewhere for "those prices" and were just driving around Cannery Row before checking in to one of those "other" places... More

Booked this hotel for our weekend getaway/20yr anniversary simply for the value and location. You can't beat the price for a hotel this close to cannery row. But...that's about it for the positives... This place is within an easy walk of cannery row, the walking/biking trails and everything else down by the water. Nice parking garage, and friendly staff at... More

We stayed here last year and found it to be Great. the service was excellent, the staff very helpful, the location one block from Cannery Row. Yes it may need some touchup here and there but for the price it was clean and comfortable. Try it for yourself. You will be glad you did.

Perfect location! We had a clean, nice room on the 4th floor with an ocean view for a great price! This would have been enough for a great review but there was more . . . They accommodated our early arrival with a phone call to housekeeping and a promise to have it ready within the hour (and still before... More

Stayed 3 nights in Monterey; one night in a great hotel just off Fisherman's Wharf, and two further unplanned nights at the Otter. I wish I'd stayed all three at the Otter. For less than the cost of one night in my previous hotel I had free wifi and parking, and what I consider to be a better location, right... More

This older property is a bit tired & bathrooms definitely need some TLC - but the location is great - an easy walk to all that Cannery Row offers & also an ocean view & private parking - all for $109/ night. Bed was comfortable, wifi was strong and check in was seem less & included a welcome basket of... More

Been staying here since I was a child. So glad I could take my kids too. Wonderful view n bench seat in the window too see it. Friendly staff very helpful. Offers great ticket packages to aquarium. Just a short walk from the water. Stores near by. Great place will for sure be back again and again.

We arrived in Monterrey on an unplanned visit, most of the other hotels in the area were full, but there was room at the Otter Inn. We pulled into the covered garage parking area and the office manager inside made us feel very welcome immediately. We stayed for two nights on the 4th floor, and while the Otter Inn could... More
