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

We were welcomed by Quinn who made us feel right at home. We had opted for the larger room which was nice and spacious. From our balcony we watched the beautiful ocean splash over the rocks and the seagulls and cormorants play in the water. Several cormorants built nests on the block wall next to our hotel and three even... More

Friendly staff and clean room. I always get a little frustrated when you arrive and there's a fee for parking, I really feel this should be built into the room cost or at least a very, very low charge. I liked the complimentary continental breakfast which is delivered to your room. Also a nice touch to include binoculars to watch... More

The Monterey Bay Inn is beautiful! The room was perfect; everything worked, and the layout of the room was just wonderful. The breakfast delivered to your room each morning at exactly your requested time was tasty and a nice variety of items, which changed every day. The view of the bay was fantastic! The location at the start of Cannery... More

Front desk rocks with Danny! She was great! Convenient to Cannery Row, the bay and downtown. We did not have a room with a view, but huge and clean. We liked having a Keurig coffee maker in the room. Like most Cali coastal inns and hotels, it is an older property.

I suggest that you begin your days at Monterey Bay Inn with sublime sunrises enjoyed from your balcony overlooking a bit of bay and beach, then shuffle inside for the complimentary prompt and abundant breakfast delivered to your room. I also suggest that you drift into your evening with a sundown soak in the rooftop hot-tub, and perhaps even wind... More
