Travelled all the way from Scotland visiting California, Arizona and Florida in October. Now home and decided this was one of the best! Before we visited we requested a quiet room and were allocated a lovely room on side of building overlooking harbour and could hear seals barking. Roof top hot tub nearby. Breakfast served on tray each morning -... More

We stayed here while visiting for two days. The room was simply marvelous and the balcony overlooked the bay. We left the patio door open all night and was treated to a wonderful ocean breeze and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. As for the location, it was perfect. The hotel is situated at the end of... More

We booked early and paid in advance to secure a better rate as this was one of the 'treat' hotels on our 5 week tour. We also upgraded to a superior room and so enjoyed the view from the balcony of the bay. Our room was spacious with a seating area where we enjoyed the continental breakfast delivered to our... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights following a business trip to San Francisco. Our room was on the 3rd floor, overlooking the bay. We loved the breakfast served in our room, allowing us to leisurely drink our coffee while lounging in the cozy Monterey Bay Inn robes. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean,...

My wife and I stayed here for four nights to celebrate our birthdays while visiting our daughter who lives in the area. The hotel is clean, comfortable, well appointed and quiet (except for the occasional barking of sea lions on the pier across the bay, which adds to the charm). The staff could not be more friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.... More

The front desk clerk Wendy was very helpful and you can't beat the location right on the ocean and walking distance to cannery row and the aquarium. Would stay here again. Got good rates from Hotel.com. only complaint towels could have been softer.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our tour of California and couldn't fault it. Despite a rather 60's building from the outside, the rooms are spacious, spotless and have lovely balconies overlooking the ocean. You even get binoculars to view the wildlife in the bay. Delightfully helpful staff recommended restaurants and delivered a delicious breakfast to the room every... More

Badly needing a getaway, we drove to Monterey and found the Monterey Bay Inn on Cannery Row, which is quiet and untouristy in late October. After checking it out in our trusty AAA guide, we booked a room with a view for two nights. Although the building exterior is somewhat plan and 1960-ish, the interior is very attractive. Our room,...
