Hotel Pacific is situated in walking-distance to downtown Monterey. Its housing is made up by rooms across several buildings connected together by stairs, elevators and walkaways. This makes for a slightly different hotel-experience but definitely on the positive side. The hotels and the rooms have their own characteristics, somewhat like living in a "Bedrock village" (from the Flintstones' TV-series) but... More

If I really want to put a positive spin on it, I owe this place a debt. It really taught me a great deal about myself and the world I live in. As I prepare to be a father, I should consider the value of this lesson and keep it fresh with me as I try to prepare my child... More

Room was great, nothing to complain ! Loved the ambience and property. But, the noise level was simply unacceptable ! We had a street facing room. Thus, entire night, there was traffic noise. On top of that, we had a rowdy neighbor upstairs. Kids were running around 1 A.M. in the morning and no way, any normal human being can... More

When we first entered the hotel, it felt like we had timetravelled back to the 1990's. The decor was so 90s that it was almost trendy (again) and we were honestly a little apprehensive. The lovely receptionist gave us an upgrade for no apparent reason other than she was a very nice lady and we crossed our fingers and hoped... More

I loved the ambiance of this hotel and property. It isn't your average cookie cutter hotel, ie: Marriott, Hilton etc. The property takes up a whole block on Pacific Ave. in Monterey. THe grounds are gorgeous at night with accent lighting. Just a step from the Portola Plaza, Fisherman's Wharf and downtown. Our room was on the 4th (top) floor.... More

My friend stayed here about 20 years ago and says the decor has not changed. It looks like it. But that's ok because we got a great deal online and the cost of the room was a very good value. I had a Junior Suite with a sizable courtyard in the back and a small living room and kitchen alcove.... More

Great hotel! really quirky & unusual layout. Really handy for all of the things Monterey has to offer. Rooms very large with balcony & real working fireplace, staff friendly & helpful. The only downside is no pool, but the beach is a stone's throw away so no great loss! Not much more to say really, if I went back to... More

Very disheartened as I, like a few other recent reviewers, have stayed here in the past and was happy. However, this was the WORST hotel stay that my family has ever endured. The noise level is so extremely unacceptable so if you need to actually sleep, this is by no means the place for you! The walls have got to... More
