This hotel, while somewhat pricey, has a great location within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf. Front desk staff were very accommodating and personable and the rooms were a decent size and very clean. We could walk 5 minutes to Fisherman's Wharf, and any other destination such as Cannery Row or the Monterrey Aquarium could be reached by the Trolley which... More

Given the price we paid, the rooms are a let down. Don't expect much from this property and you won't be disappointed. The good thing about here was that there were street parking nearby so we don't have to pay Marriott any more money than we had to.

Hotel was great for a business conference. Close to Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, the aquarium. But.. Don't drink the water. Tastes horribly like chlorine. Had some last night, followed by a bottled water to wash out the taste. Woke up this morning and my throat burns like I drank a bunch of swimming pool water. Bottled water is $3.50 in... More

Booked this hotel for 2 rooms at the end of our vacation. Called ahead to let them know we would be arriving with a truck and 21 foot trailer. Understood that we could not park at the hotel but there was plenty of parking "at the wharf". They forgot to mention that there is also no place to unload baggage... More

We opted for the $7 parking 2 blocks away rather than the hotel vallet parking charge - it worked out fine for us. The room was nicely presented, clean and smart. Our "bay view" was really more of a "peer round the corner - bay view". I'd envisaged whale watching from our room - that certainly wasn't possible. Although WIFI... More

Booked Marriott Monterey using 40,000 points in July 2015 to attend my friend’s 50th birthday party in Carmel. Check in time is 4 pm and check out at 12 pm. I called prior to arrival to request an early check in at 2, which they were able to accommodate. I am Marriott Silver Elite. The valet parking with in and... More

Overall: Although the property is dated, the staff tries hard to prove de great service. Location: large hotel based in downtown Monterey. About a mile from Cannery Row and 1.2 miles from the Aquarium Rooms: They obviously did some renovation but not total. The tubs are replaced by modern showers but the furniture, small TV, sliding pocket door for the... More

The hotel is located near the wharf and provided us with a very pleasant stay. Would have preferred a wider variety for buffet breakfast. Although we stayed for only one night it was a very pleasant stay made good by friendly staff. Free wifi was not provided in the rooms

The hotel is great. Very nice and great location. Just across the street you can take the trolley and basically go through Monterey without the need to drive, plus it is free. Downside of the hotel: Big; you have to pay for valet; you have to pay for wi-fi.

Stayed here for two nights during our Seattle to San Diego road trip. Our stay happened to coincide with the car auction, which made for a lively and exciting stay! Yes it was a bit expensive, but that was likely due to the event. Location is terrific. Our bay view room was very spacious, clean, and well appointed. We'd stay... More
