If you are looking for a wonderful treat, try the Monterey Inn. A bit off the beaten path, but the best value we encountered during our trip.
We stayed in #212, one of their renovated rooms, which was decorated in apricots, sage greens and beautiful rich wood pieces - "gorgeous" would not be overstating the elegance and warmth of this room. It was furnished with a nice wing-back recliner, beautiful wood pieces, a spotless tile floor, a 4-poster bed with sheets smooth as butter, a frig & microwave, and light-weight terry cloth robes, and topped off with a crystal chandelier, seemingly out of place, but a perfect fit. We could have just tucked ourselves away for a few days.
Though our room didn't have a view and a few cars could be heard, it didn't phase us. Had we been able to stay for a few days, we may have asked for one of their other renovated "mini suites" overlooking the bay. They showed us photos of suites with a marine theme, golf theme, etc., all very different, but lovely.
They have standard rooms also, which are not unlike a typical hotel room elsewhere, but the prices were so reasonable, you wouldn't want to miss staying in one of their suites!
Continental Breakfast was the same as everywhere & didn't grab our interest, but they do have a bbq for grilling up your fresh-caught fish, with a nice outdoor sitting area overlooking the bay.
Quite often, when we hear "renovated", it means fresh paint and new carpet, but still lacking a nice mattress & linens, clean & functioning shower/tub, etc. This suite was truly renovated, meticulous, beautiful and just a delightful surprise.
