We were in town for the Big Sur Half Marathon and it was a perfect location - the expo is across the street and the start and finish are short walks. We walked to Cannery Row and Fisherman's Warf - reasonable distances. Our room was comfortable and clean and associates were helpful and pleasant. Couple of downsides: no microwave and... More

It was fine, it really was, but nothing special. Centrally located and helpful, friendly staff. Pretty expensive, but I guess that is to be expected. Room was clean and relatively quiet even just above the pool.

A bit pricey for the hotel - it is a little dated, however the location was close to the wharf and downtown. The layout of the hotel is quite funky - ask for a room by the elevator since otherwise you may be walking down a multitude of hallways. Parking is not included with the stay and you will have...

stayed here for two nights, was upgraded to a room on the 7th floor with a balcony. The double beds were really two twin beds and although comfortable they were a little small. The bathroom had a pocket door which I found to be a little strange for this category of hotel. Was given complementary wifi however it was useless... More

Great location, convenient to downtown, fisherman's wharf and not to far from cannery row. Rooms are a little small. They charge extra for everything, including WiFi. It was ok but not a favorite hotel in Monterey.

Nice location right in the heart of downtown. Just an easy 10 minute walk to the wharf. We walked to Aquarium from here (about 45 minutes). Nice location near numerous great restaurants Close to shopping as well. Great staff and nice restaurant for breakfast. Good bar on the south end of motel as well as a really nice English pub...

Recently spent 3 nights at the Monterey Marriott. Family of four.

There is no other hotel to stay at in Monterey. The staff makes your staff magical. This is the third time we have stayed here on our anniversary and it keeps getting better every time. From dropping off your car at the valet to the unbelievable staff at the front desk. They were so kind to upgrade our room which... More

Wanted to celebrate my birthday & overdue anniversary while still being able to watch our son play a local college football game. We looked high and low for a decent hotel in the Monterey area during Jazz Festival weekend. Couldn't find anything for a Saturday night but were able to find Friday night available.

We were at the Marriott in Monterey for a wedding this past weekend and was very impressed with the facilities. The location was perfect, service was exemplary, rooms and reception room was as expected from a quality Marriott...excellent. I wish that we could have stayed longer!
