We chose Monterey Tides as there was limited lodging directly on the bay and we were so looking forward to staying. It turned out to be more like and "old" motel. What a disappointment! Every review you read about how bad this place is completely describes exactly what it is like. There are holes in the carpet and a bathroom so small you barely have room to move. There is no privacy because everyone that walks by has a total view into your room so I had to use a small closet to dress. The view is fabulous but the accommodations need urgent renovation. We found long hairs in the bed on the first night we were there so had to ask for the bed to be changed. We never saw housekeeping until after 4pm when we were returning from sight seeing to get ready for dinner. The housekeeping staff is very small and stretched thin so I think they do the best they can. The lobby has been totally renovated and is lovely unlike the accommodations. We were miserable but had already been charged for our 3 day stay. The cost to stay here is severely overpriced considering the condition of the accommodations . There is a restaurant on the 4th floor which is ok but the menu is extremely limited. There is only one elevator to the higher floors as one was out of order for our entire stay so there is a wait for that. Stay at your own risk.

The hotel lobby is really pleasant, as well as the restaurant area. Location is really nice, on the beach, so in the morning it's easy to go for a walk/run. Easy parking next to the rooms. Room was modest, when we arrived it smelled of marijuana but the place feels safe and the room is clean and has everything. There is a pool, we couldn't use it because weather wasn't very good. It is not very close to the center of Monterey so you have to take a car to go there. We ordered room service and it arrived pretty fast.

This is a motel on the ocean and instead of paying the $450 some dollars we booked it under we left after one of the two nights because of a moldy smell in room only to find they charged us $950 for one night. Carpet was sticky and establishment was sub par. Never EVER again!
