Living on the Oregon coast oceanfront, we have gulls in our "front yard," too. We sought out Otter Inn again because of our good experience here several years ago. They are just as good as before, if not better. King room, in back away from street noise, top floor so no tromping overhead. Very clean, very affordable (Wednesday after Labor... More

This is a great hotel centrally located to Cannery Row. The hotel is themed nautically and is clean and tidy. It offers free parking and free wifi and a lovely little hot tub. Cannery row is a 5 minute walk with restaurants and bars close by. We went whale watching while we were there and fishermans wharf is just a... More

The lady at the front desk was wonderful and helpful. She made sure I had the resources to reaquaint myself with the area and that all my questions were answered. It was like having my own personal guide to cannery row.

We wanted to take our 19 year old to Monterey(we live 68 miles away) but not spend a fortune so we picked a hotel that was right one street off of Cannery Row the prices were reasonable under $200 a night for Friday and Saturday night hotel was clean. My son said the Seigels kept him up at night and... More

Absolutely love this place. The value for location is second to none, you can walk to everything Monterey has to offer. A great town with so much to do. We stayed for 2 nights on our recent road trip and loved it so much that we decided to return for another 2 nights, after leaving San Francisco. The rooms are... More

Stayed here as part of our trip. Turned up on spec as we did throughout our journey. Nice location. Free parking. Seagulls are a little loud but that can't be helped. Definitely stay here again. Reasonably priced.

I had to wait awhile before writing this review as my experience was so awful, it just upset me to even think about it. I am not usually very high maintenance when it comes to hotels because I think you generally get what you pay for. This wasn't the cheapest place but I felt it had good value for the... More

We recently stayed at the Otter Inn for three nights. The motel is nice and has free covered parking. The motel is a little older and is a little short on electrical outlets. We usually unplug the lamps and clocks, but here they are hard wired in. Bring a power strip if you have lots of devices to charge. Travelling... More

This is our "go to" place in Monterey. We've been going regularly to Monterey since 1970, many times parking the motorhome in a parking lot where Ghiradelli Chocolate and the Pebble Beach Shop now sit. We have stayed in nearly every hotel/motel/inn on or near Cannery Row over the last 46 years, and since we are now among the Senior... More
