Very nice, clean rom. The room smelled well, the first minute I went in the door. With all aquiment you need, even a nice little taibel with two chairs. Shower instead of bathtub, I found convenient. Parking very good and good prices i low session.

An older property, but well-enough maintained. Great location. Good prices for Monterey. Clean. I had one slight issue, but the front desk woman took care of it immediately. I have stayed here in the past, when it was the El Adobe by the Bay, so I'm not sure if it changed hands or changed names or both. Either way, it's... More

We got a great deal booking our room at the last minute through the Hotel Tonight app. Our room was spacious and well-equiped with fridge, coffee maker and TV. The staff were welcoming and friendly. There are no bar or restaurant facilities at the hotel but there are plenty of places in close walking distance. We took a short stroll... More

Clean room, which is a must. Offered free wi fi and fridge. Nice and spacious. View wasn't anything to call home about, but it wasn't why I was there. I would easily stay here again. Front desk staff was pleasant and helpful. Only drawback, no elevator. Only 2 floors, but if you need an elevator, stay on the 1st floor.

Rooms were clean, and well equipped, with a fridge, coffee maker and a small bathroom. If you're on the second floor be aware that there are only stairs which may not be good for those who have mobility issues. The staff were also friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that the connecting doors between rooms are VERY thin... the... More

Stayed 2 nights. Very reasonable prices. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Close to many things. No elevators, so if you have trouble with steps, it may be a challenge. Close to lots of attractions. I would come back!

In my day these places were called Motels but now they are called Inns. And you know they can be sketchy sometimes. Not so for the Inn by the Bay. It is well maintained and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The best part about this Inn is the staff. Kind, helpful and cheerful - I stayed here on my... More

This was a one night stop over. The room was pretty average. The heat/ac unit a bit loud. The bed was good. The place was clean. From our room you could actually kinda see the Bay... but mostly it looked out on a neighborhood. The location is good. You could walk to the waterfront from here.
