    The room was nice and clean with a partial view of the ocean. The view was spectacular. Having a drink on the balcony late at night with all the lights and the view was really nice. The bed was decent but nothing special in terms of comfort. In my opinion it had to be a bit softer. I misunderstood the... More

    My husband stayed here for our 10 year anniversary. The location was great! We were walking distance to all of the restaurants and shops. The view from our balcony was amazing! We were able to relax in the rooftop spa overlooking the ocean. The staff was really great and the hotel was very clean! We will definitely be staying here... More

    Our stay was very relaxing. Our room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The entire staff was very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure our stay was a pleasant one. We felt like we were the only ones in the hotel.

    Great location, definitely go for an ocean view. Extremely accommodating staff, welcoming and pleasant. We asked for very early morning breakfast delivery in order to get to a sunrise kayak trip, and Adrian made it happen. Older hotel, but freshened up nicely, bathrooms large, rooms good size, lobby welcoming.

    My husband and I visited for the 4th time Monday last. As usual everything was great. Breakfast on the balcony is a morning favorite. Staff are very professional and courteous. Worst part is having to leave.

    Oh my goodness! This views from our room were just breath taking! The service was great, rooms were very clean. We are at the restaurant for breakfast and the food was delicious! We would absolutely stay here again!

    Stayed here on Monday evening. Fabulous stay in a fabulous room looking directly over the Ocean. Would strongly recommend you pay the extra (if you can) to have the ocean view. Excellent location - easy to work into town for dinner. Breakfast adequate. My final comment would be not to judge a book by its cover as from the outside... More

    My family and I visited Monterey Bay Inn on a road trip between San Francisco and LA. It's at the quieter end of town but has a really lovely view over the beach and harbour and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony listening to the sounds of seals barking, to a nearby fountain and gentle ocean waves. We also watched... More

    We came to Monterey for a cool, weekend getaway. Upon check-in we were greeted by Bethany....Such a delightful lady! She was very friendly, informative and accommodating. She made our stay so pleasant. In addition, our room was absolutely fabulous. It was large, clean and inviting, with a fantastic view of the ocean. When we came back from dinner, our bed... More

    We absolutely love this hotel! We enjoyed the views and the salt air from our room. Such a historically rich city and this gem of a hotel made our stay that much better. We had a view of the water and saw the birds and sea life from our room. The hotel has service that is second to none. A... More
