Spent only one night at this lovely, intimate hotel and can't wait to return for several more. Beautiful and spacious room, extremely comfortable bed, well appointed bathroom (to die for!), and stunning view (from the 3rd floor) of Monterey Bay, pier, etc. The balcony was outfitted with a table and two comfortable metal chairs, in which we spent about an...

All the pictures posted are accurate but real life experience is so much better! The view from our balcony faces directly to the ocean, we woke up hearing the waves crushed and the bird chirping. It was paradise. The breakfast is served in-room and we had it on our balcony. It was so good and so sad we only stayed... More

We enjoyed staying at this hotel, but I was disappointed that our ocean view room had a view only of the ocean. The balcony was closed in on both sides, and the hotel is located so close to the ocean that you cannot see the beach. So it was like looking through a porthole. We shortened our stay and went...

We made a last minute booking for one night whilst on our honeymoon this month. We had just come from an horrific hotel so I was slightly worried but what a great find this was! Perfect location at the harbour and we were greeted by such a nice friendly guy on reception who helped us with somewhere for dinner (Massuro... More

this hotel is small but well situated. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped with most having good views. Do go for upper floors though. Great to be able to sit outside the room and enjoy the sea breeze. Staff are helpful and on-site parking is available. No restaurant but breakfast s delivered to your room. A word of warning -...

We stayed here while visiting and touring the area. The room was excellent with a nice deck with chairs & table outside and a commanding view of the shoreline and a fountain in a park outside next to the hotel. Everything in this room was first class. The layout of the room was great, the quality of the linens, pillows,... More

After arriving in Monterey on the 2nd night of our honeymoon, we arrived at the hotel, which is located just off Cannery Row and on the beach. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the harbour and a table, chairs for sitting out. The room was very spacious and a good size bed with quality bed linen, mattress etc.... More

Monterey Bay was beautiful, as was the hotel. The view from my room was breathtaking. I was serenaded at night by the sea lions and waves. It was awesome. Shouted myself to some spa treatments which were great and relaxing. Close to great boutique shops and whale watching. Great distance to great restaurants.

My wife and I made a last minute detour to Monterey on our whirlwind California vacation. We reviewed several hotels as we approached the town. We settled on Monterey Bay Inn, we were greeted at the front desk by Beth. She was very helpful and pleasant to speak with. Our first room was a street view which was not bad... More

My stay at the Monterey Bay Inn was excellent! My friend and I stayed 3 nights for a "bucket list girls trip". Our room was fantastic, with a view of the ocean, the pier, and a small park. The photo online is probably the room we had. #403. Every morning they bring you a continental breakfast with a pot of... More
