Stayed recently for two nights. The hotel was fine; clean; reasonable service and located a short walk from the wharf, and a slightly longer walk (but there is a free trolley bus) from Cannery Row. Very good gym, nice public areas, reasonable sized room, but no in room WiFi? $25 to park on site, bottle of water in the room... More

Recently chose the Marriott for our brief stay in Monterey, primarily because my kids love pools. But the hotel itself was a pleasure. This is a true full service hotel with helpful staff, big, beautiful rooms, an excellent breakfast (the coffee options were much appreciated!) and an incredible location walking distance to everything on our list. We look forward to... More

I have stayed at this Marriott before for business and always have had good customer service. Emily at the front desk rearranged everything so my family could all be together. The hotel is very outdated and they have missed a lot of details; trim in the bathroom, shower heads are not great, but it's a good location.

I am a frequent Marriott guest (platinum member), and this one just does not make the mark. The people at the front desk are cranky, the street is loud, the decor was last updated in the 80s, and the location is a mile from the things families come to Monterey to see - the seals, Cannery Row and the aquarium....

Wasn't thrilled with this hotel and it has totally turned me off bothering to maintain my gold status. We were given two rooms on the lowest possible floor with a view of nothing. One of them stank of something like curry. At check-in I asked for a higher floor but was told nothing was available. After I went back down... More

As a Marriot Rewards Gold member I stay at many Marriot properties around the country. This one by far was the nosiest one. I've asked for a higher floor room but was declined the upgrade, another turn off for being a Gold member. Our room was on the second floor, we could hear all the street noise, as well as... More

Enjoyed the Marriott with three teenagers for a bday. Large room with great amenities although they were a little shy with the soap. Our bay view room was really a corner bay view so that was disappointing. But it's a handy location and walk to wharfs.

Whenever we stay at this hotel, I have always been greeted with a warm welcome and great service. Hotel is so convenient to downtown and wharf area; you are in walking distance to many restaurants and activities. Also the hotel rooms are clean (which is very important to me).
