Great place to stay for visit. Within walking distance to the Aquarium and Cannery Row. The rooms have been recently updated and were clean and very comfortable. Especially liked the inside secured patio level, which allowed us to leave children in the room and converse around gas fireplace outside. Also like the fact that hotel allowed us to leave the car the following morning until late in the afternoon, so we could tour the Aquarium. Although parking was not free, it is reasonable for parking, located onsite, and nice bonus so we did not have to move the car to another public parking area. We would definitely recommend staying here again. Great for families and proximity to sites.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Room was large and comfortable, though a little outdated and overpriced at $570 for 2 nights with parking (the rate reduced after we booked but the inn kindly adjusted the price). Parking available onsite for $17/night. Staff friendly and helpful before and during stay. Great location at Cannery Row - 10 minute walk to Fishermans Wharf /downtown and 25 mins walk to Pacific Heights.

Exceptional customer service, at a great hotel. We had a couple room issues that were handled super fast. This hotel is very clean, the A/C and heating were quiet and perfect. Very comfortable king bed. One walkable block to Cannery Row. John at the front counter was very helpful, professional, and friendly. He made check in easy. Our Maintenance Engineer Melvin was so nice and caring. He was so reassuring and made us feel comfortable and took care of the issues we had professionally and expertly. So nice get wonderful customer service. We had such a great time at this hotel, we will always stay here when in the Monterey area. Thank you to the entire staff at the Wave Street Inn

Reasons for only 4 stars, no onsite laundry facilities & the fridge froze my strawberries & all drinks. We had a ceiling leak but wasnt an issue for us. It was clean, plenty of parking, very central, receptionist Jennifer was very helpful. Would stay again.

We stayed at Wave Street Inn in January 2024 (as a couple from Australia). It is a lovely hotel in a very central location, just moments away from Cannery Row. Our room was very comfortable and well equipped. I would definitely stay here again.

Very clean, close to all. Nice place for breakfast down the hill. If you want to save money go to deli. Its to the right facing ocean from hotel. Go to the right for about two blocks. Its past the antique store. Its tucked away. Close to aquarium and cannery row.

Stayed at Wave St. Inn for 3 days and had a great stay. Not fancy but very clean, comfortable room, excellent A/C. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Very convenient location and restaurants/shopping close by. Parking right on premises. Comfortable neighborhood. Would stay here in a minute on a return trip.

A very standard inn. Room was spotlessly clean and bed was comfortable, reception staff were great and helpful. However even our top floor room was gloomy and really noisy - aircon sounded like a train, walls paper thin, decor dark and dated, holes in the curtains. water pressure weak, facilities basic. Outside were fire pits / seating with a campsite feel but there are no internal communal spaces or dining on site. An average room for a premium price, with parking on top of that.

Great location and comfortable bed. The reception staff were absolutely fantastic and we thank you for the restaurant suggestions. Not quite as clean as I would have liked with a used tissue behind the tissue box in the bathroom. I could not get the TV to work and there were a few wall plugs dangling from the unit.

Clean and perfectly located. Short walk to Cannery Row and the aquarium. Beds are comfortable. I appreciated having air conditioning. Most hotels in the area seemed to not have AC which may seem unnecessary given the outdoor temps however inside can get stuffy. Rooms have a small refrigerator & Keurig but no microwave. If the motel style set up is concerning you it is important to note that there are gates that require your room key to enter the interior courtyard. Parking on site for extra fee. Was a great place to stay for our week in Monterey!
