Pros: good location ( between cannery row and fisherman's wharf), on site parking as opposed to valet parking, but still costs 17.00 a day. They give you a little card to put on your dash. And you better put it on your dash or you will be ticketed. Bathrooms have double sinks and toilet is in separate room from shower... More

Stayed here for three days. This hotel has wonderful staff, a killer view of the bay, and great location for walking either into town or out to the point. Right on the bike/ walk trail that runs the edge of the bay. Staff was friendly and breakfast served in bed every day, complimentary, was wonderful! Hot tub on rooftop looking... More

I picked this place off of the reviews on trip advisor and I was so happy with the location and the view. Breakfast in the room was awesome. I would stay again. The place right next door is double the price.. So happy I made the choice I did! We would definatly return

ok, so it doesn't look great from the outside and reception is not impressive - but - this hotel has had a think about what is important and has come up with the answer. The rooms are not only spacious but well appointed with great sea views and furnished with quality linens so that your time spent in the hotel... More

This is in a good position and the rooms are nicely furnished but that is it. The shutters onto the balcony hardly block out any road noise, our room was quite dusty in places and the decor around the hotel is quite shabby, for instance in the lift the perspex panels are scratched. And the breakfast you might as well... More

We have stayed at the Monterrey Bay inn several times over the years, probably the last being 5 or so years ago. The view is is incredible and the inn, although on Cannery Row, is situated more on the fringes, which makes it a little less quiet. A couple of items, when we arrived,there was another couple checking in before... More

We stayed for 2 nights as part of a field trip for our son. While the room was nice and the view was great, we found it to be noisy. We had to stay on the second floor as those are the only rooms with the sofa bed. The first night was pretty quiet as we didn't have anyone above... More

I booked a "Cannery Row View" room because it was much cheaper than the "Ocean View" rooms. However, we were pleasantly surprised to see that the rooms aren't facing the street. They're on the side of the hotel. Our view was part park and part harbor/marina. The bed was comfortable, but I felt like a support was missing from under... More

We wanted a room with a view and we were not disappointed. This hotel is right on the water and the waterside rooms are perfect. The rooms are very stylish, with great amenities including in-room breakfast and cozy robes. We did not try the hot tub because we forgot our suits, but next time! This hotel is within walking distance... More
