Well where can I start! Number one the rate mistakes were occurred! Service for the room socks you have to make your own bed and clean the room after seven days! there is no housekeeping available! You have to pay $30 every day resort fee or you don’t get the service plus tax! Only positive things was the view, one housekeeper Jose and front desk staff member lady Leah! Food, if you order the room service that was packed in a small boxes, no plates and in terrible presentation! Jason the front desk manager terrible service attitude, arrogant, doesn’t care about the customers comfort and pleasure in the Hotel, he should not be in customer service in the first place at all.

if you haven't been to Monterey Tides you have to spend a few extra bucks but its worth every penny. Tyler the new manager has I going on. He was on top of every need we had. And Liah handled everything when he wasn't there. We will be back soon. A few steps right to the private beach. Doesn't get any better than the Tides. Eric Mayo

We loved this hotel. We have been here now 3 times and it is always awesome! The room was beautiful and being right on the ocean is amazing. The restaurant in the hotel Waterfront Kitchen has the best food ever! Our waiter Dennis made it so enjoyable. We will be back again!

Thank you to Dennis who made dinner amazing! So attentive and courteous, even found us a place next to the window for the best ocean views! I had the lamb and it was to die for. Loved it, 10/10 recommend!
