Location is good. The room was average and clean. Spent one night in the hotel on our road trip down the coast. The rate was very high for the room. Being a hotel employee for 30 years I was disappointed in this hotel. Old building that did some remodeling but just not worth the rate paid. Our brother and siste-in-law... More

We stayed two nights at the Monterrey Bay Inn in April. It has a great location directly on the bay and Cannery Row. We booked a partial ocean view which had a large ocean view plus overlooked a small beach area, the marina and part of the wharf. Easy walking everywhere. Our room was large and well appointed. It had... More

We had not been to Monterey in some time so wanted to try a new place to stay so we chose Monterey Bay Inn. We were very happy with the choice and Stacy the Manager was overly friendly and accomadating and felt like we had known her for a long time. The room was clean, very nice view of the... More

We stayed in Cannery Room 302. We had a beautiful partial view of Monterey Bay. We had a King size bed. There was no pull out sofa but there were 2 overstuffed chairs we were able to put together for our grandson which worked wonderfully. I would not pay the extra $$ for an ocean view room because this room... More

Our family visited the inn this month after a trip to San Francisco where we had been robbed. We arrived at the inn and our room had a queen bed but a couch that was less than accommodating. The manager relaly felt for us and went out her way to make sure we were comfortable and satisfied, putting us in... More

I can't think of anything bad about this place. From the second we walked in to the second we left service was awesome from all staff. It's at the opposite end of the Aquarium but it's only an easy 10 minute stroll through shops and restaurants to get there. There is a small beach area and grassy area nearby to... More

Generally excellent. Although expensive, this is one of the more reasonably priced options on Cannery Row. The front desk staff are friendly and responsive. The room was clean with a very comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. Hot tubs / outdoor lounges were clean and pleasant. Lovely continental breakfast means you don't have to worry about getting a meal in... More

The staff was top notch from the very start. We checked this hotel based on location late on a Thursday after a 19 hour drive. Having no reservations and looking a wreck, I spoke with the clerk and was promptly found a room for 3 nights. The room was modern and very comfortable with great views of the bay. The... More

monterey bay hotel An unexpected delight This photo shows the view from our balcony at The Monterey Bay Inn showing delightful views over Monterey Bay. The room was generous and nicely furnished with a large and comfortable bed which meant that we had a great nights sleep! Plentiful supply of fresh clean towels ( if you chose) and good quality...

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
