I am going crazy! Please help!

We are going to be arriving next week on a company fun trip. We are staying at the Inn at Spanish Bay on company bucks and then me and my wife are going to stay 3 extra days. The problem is that I am going mad trying to find the best place to stay. We want to stay under 300/nt. Would like to have a suite if possible with ocean view. What are my best choices?

You will not be able to duplicate the Inn at Spanish Bay for the price. You may wish to try the Hyatt Highlands Inn (Carmel Highlands) for a beautiful view. They sometimes have specials, but doubt you can get in for under $300/nt. Also, try the Tickle Pink

next door.

The Monterey Plaza has some great views, but these rooms also command hefty prices. We did luck out once with a suite and a wonderful view for under $300 - so you just never know. Your best bet would probably be the Portola Hotel (formerly the Doubletree), by the Monterey Wharf. You could probably get an upgrade and a view for under $300.

Pacific Grove (next to Monterey) has some charming B&B's (many with views) - which probably run $200 -$300 per night.

topsweeper is right, you are going to be spoiled. Try this - www.montereybayresort.com. Google both the Highlands Inn and the Tickle Pink Inn and see what you can get (probably more than $300. There is an historic hotel in Carmel with beautiful gardens and varied accommodations (probably no view, but look at it.) La Playa. I don't have a website for it.

Good Luck.

The Marriott across the street from the Portola Plaza hotel has bay view rooms, as well.
