Value for money in an expensive area. Parking was ok, in front of room. The stairs did not feel very safe. Pleasant staff, info and maps available. No breakfast. No outlook but that was fine for the $

When I arrived I was greeted by a lovely lady who was so helpful and friendly, she remembered my name every time she spoke to me. I only booked for one night, but the hotel and area was so nice I extended my stay. The rooms are quite large and have everything you could need, with big windows for lots... More

We had a city view room on the 2d floor with a slice of the Bay showing. The view was lovely. The room was large and well appointed with comfortable beds and pillows. Amenities included a mini fridge, hair dryer, iron, and ironing board. There is free wifi available. Outlets are not conveniently located by the night stand and beds.... More

It's summer, it's Monterey so hotel operators pretty much get to charge what they want. This place was renovated somewhere along the line but a coat of paint and some new furniture still says old. It was a place to sleep then leave. The rate was crazy at slightly less than $300.00 for a night. Search around, you can find... More

We needed and got a dog friendly room on the ground floor which was formerly a handicapped designated room so it was very roomy. We loved that. The price was great for us reserving it last minute. Also loved that they have a brand supplied by "greensuites" (can't remember the 4-letter brand) refillable amenities in the bathroom: soap, shampoo and... More

This was your run-of-the-mill hotels. But what left me shaking my head was the location based on an ad I saw advertizing the place and its name, “Inn by the Bay”. It may be an Inn, but there is no Bay by it. In fact I don’t think you can see water from this hotel at all? Anyway, the room... More

We were greeted by a very friendly desk attendant who gave us great tips on traveling in the area! The room was clean and spacious, however the exterior walls were uninsulated cinder block, and we could hear everything in our room near the entrance. Otherwise the neighborhood was quiet and two miles walking distance from the aquarium.

Stopped for two nights over last weekend. Upstairs room, well sized and recently refurbished as, I suspect, has the whole place as it's recently changed name. Good bathroom area, plenty of evening sun and ventilation for getting the washing dry ! Coffee in room but no breakfast available but Wild Plum café and Denny's about 200 yards towards town. Note...

The name of the hotel/motel is deceptive as it is certainly not by the bay, in fact it was a few minutes drive by car!!! Apart from that the rooms were a good size and clean with free wifi, fridge and coffee making facilities. The girl on reception was very efficient and helpful and the only downside was parking at...
