When we first pulled up to the Monterey Bay Lodge, I thought oh no - I’ve made a bad choice! (It doesn’t look nice from the outside, very motor lodge/motel-ish). But once inside I was happy. The room was very clean and cozy. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The location is great, just a short walk across the street to the beach and a very short drive to Fisherman’s Wharf and Cannery Row. I always enjoy a hotel room with windows for fresh air and this room had windows in the bathroom and the main room as well as a sliding door out to a patio area which led to the pool.
Bathroom amenities do not include toothpaste, so we had to run to the gas station next door to buy some, so please remember to bring your own. The shower could have been nicer, but it was clean.
Overall it is a nice place, nothing fancy, just comfortable in a great location. It was a little overpriced at $220/night for what it is, but that is to be expected during high season in Monterey. I would stay here again because of the location near the beach. But if you are looking for luxury, this is not the place.
