Got a very warm welcome with freshly baked cookies. Parked in the convenient hotel lot. As we were on honeymoon we also got a complimentary bottle of wine and some chocolates to enjoy on our balcony overlooking the bay as we searched for sea otters and seals with the provided binoculars. Room was spacious and well appointed with a modern,... More

This hotel was nice and quant. The staff was friendly. With a bay view room at the front of the hotel we had a view of mostly the park next door but we could see the ocean around the corner. The hotel had old bones with a facelift as you could hear it with every step. It was very clean... More

This ocean front hotel is ideally located. It is just off the busy section of town, but it enjoys ocean views and is certainly within walking distance of the local attractions. It may not be quite as fancy as some of the other hotels on the water, but it is priced reasonably and provides everything you need for a nice... More

We have stayed at Monterey Bay Inn many times now and have to say again great place to stay. Friendly, clean close to everything in Monterey. Breakfast to your room at the time you want it. The beach is a five minute walk. Walk to Monterey's restaurant's and shopping. Easy parking that is good through 4:00pm the day you are... More

This hotel was excellent. The ocean view was fantastic! You had a view of the ocean, the marina with sail boats and across the peninsula, so at night you could see the distant twinkling lights. There was a turn down service and breakfast delivered to your room. You filled out the request form in your room and they delivered it... More

This is a nice, fairly priced hotel. It's in a great location for nice walks, food and shops. It's clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and there is car parking for $17 per night. Aveda bathroom products was a nice little bonus! We paid extra for a partial ocean view room which was nice but next time i'd ask... More

We had an ocean front room and it was wonderful. Comfortable bed, friendly staff and nice continental breakfast. We enjoyed watching the seals and otter swim by. It is a great place to relax and unwind.

We stayed here as part of of our trip down the Californian Coast. Monterey came highly recommended by a work colleague who grew up there so we booked two nights. However, after a quick look around the hotel and a walk around the town, we quickly realised one night would have been plenty. The hotel should be great but it... More

While we were all pleased that you found our location to be superb, we are disappointed that our property failed to meet your expectations. All our guest rooms were fully remodeled in 2007 with the addition of marble bathrooms. In the past two years we have added 47 inch flat screen televisions, new duvets, pillows, shams, and new mattress sets.... More

The location is perfect, the staff very nice, and the breakfast delivered each morning a very nice touch. Our only complaint... and it's a big one... is that the walls are very thin and we were able to hear our neighbors. This isn't an inexpensive hotel so we were surprised by that and it took away from the trip.

We loved our stay here it was clean and very comfortable. The spa on the roof top over looked the bay and was perfect. Wendy helped us in the front and she was so kind and welcoming. This location could not be any better close enough to walk to everything but not in the middle where it is really congested... More
