We only got to stay one night at this hotel, unfortunately the night we stayed there was a weather warning and so the open ocean deck was closed down. Which is unfortunate for the ocean deck is open to all guests and has 2 fire pits with great views of the ocean. No better way to end the night with a nice coffee or glass of wine while sitting by the fire listening to the waves crash below you.
Our room was excellent, very large king room with a fireplace, reading chair, and very large bathroom with a soaker tub and separate shower. We were even greeted by an otter mama and her baby on our bed.
The location of this hotel is right in the tourist cannery row. Lots of great little shops and restaurants, Bubba Gump right out side the front door, as well as Starbucks across the street. We ate our one night at the Fishhopper, great food and great patio right on the water.
I don't know if I'd pay full price for this hotel, but we got a great rate with priceline.
Be sure to check out the 17 mile drive while in Monterrey, some of the most incredible views of the California coast.
