Stayed one night at the Monterey Bay Inn whilst driving Pacific Coast Highway. Received a warm welcome at check in and we were impressed with the room. Great view from the balcony, complimentary breakfast served in your room and a big comfy bed.

We just spent two nights at the Inn. Upon arrival and learning we were celebrating our birthdays, we were treated to an upgraded ocean view room. No sooner had we settled in then a knock on the door produced a waiter with chocolates and a bottle of wine! Nice! Great views, good people, a nice couple of days away!

My wife treated us both to my birthday trip (which included a member's dinner at the Aquarium.) That was followed by wine-tasting, so we knew we didn't want to drive. The Monterey Bay Inn was the logical choice -- not at expensive as those closer to the Aquarium. Since it was at the far end of Cannery Row, we had... More

We spent one night and had a peaceful, comfortable sleep. The bathroom is large and well designed for two people. The closet has adequate hangers, an iron and an ironing board. Parking is underneath the hotel (Extra cost) and there are charging stations for electric vehicles. Breakfast was delivered on a timely basis and our only complaints were that the... More

This is walking distance to Cannery row, wharf and the aquarium. Also closeby are several great restaurants. There is a small beach besides the hotel. They offer free breakfast in room and fruits in the afternoon near the lobby. Binoculars can be found in every room with a view to enjoy the scenic bay. Birds keep visiting your room's balcony....

I went with my boyfriend as a getaway weekend and was impressed with everything the hotel had to offer. The location was great within walking distance to everything we did. Cannery row, the wharf, the aquarium and even lovers point! We opted to choose the "oceanfront" room, which I was a bit skeptical of other oceans "views" I've had at... More

I stayed here for a birthday celebration. When I got to my room, there was a bottle of wine in a silver ice bucket, chocolates, and a signed card from the staff. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. I had an oceanfront room, and it was spectacular! There is a pair of excellent binoculars in the room, which really helped... More

Located directly on the water at the beginning of Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Inn was a great choice for us. All of the rooms have a view of the bay. I would estimate about 2/3 of the rooms look down the beach and out toward the marina with plenty of the bay in view as well. The other 1/3... More

this hotel is a very well-kept hotel conveniently located at the beach literally 2 minutes away from the beach right down the street from shopping and fine dining restaurants shopping and other great entertainment. The staff is very friendly and courteous professional. The continental breakfast was good but if you're looking for something sustaining there is a restaurant real close... More
