Decent clean rooms and lovely reception area to sit and watch the sea. But service not good. I think more training is needed. We arrived an hour and a half before the 4pm check in time and were helpfully told our room had been cleaned, just needed inspecting and should be ready in half an hour. So we decided to... More

We opted for a last minute getaway and this place was just the place. It had all of the goodies to keep you from wandering to other places. It is DOG-FRIENDLY, have a great restaurant with amazing views (we saw dolphins, whales, and sea lions during our meals), beautiful bar with a super friendly staff, and the pool area is... More

The reason to stay here is location, location, location! We sat in our room and watched dolphins, we saw a seal, and we saw a sea otter. There was even a possible whale in the distance. This was quite fun for us! Absolutely do not stay here unless you are willing to pay the extra money for the ocean side... More

We spent a night at the Monterey Tides. The hotel is right on the beach so we were up early with our feet in the surf. The staff were friendly, the room well appointed. Hopefully we'll get a chance to return and stay longer.

The location is wonderful, away from the maddening crowds.. Starbucks close by as well as very good restaurants. I explained this in the room tip. You have to make sure that housekeeping understands what you say. There is a language barrier.

After a lot of research we settled on Monterey Tides as the hotel for our 4 days in Monterey and we could not have made a better choice! Close enough to Cannery Row to be around all the action but far enough to have some peace when needed! Definitely upgrade to an ocean view! Well worth the price! Falling asleep... More

Great location, had ocean view with direct access to the beach. Room clean and comfortable could have been a little bit bigger for a family. Hotel a little bit pricey paid over $400 for one nights stay

First time staying at this hotel and we all loved it!!! Beautiful view from the room! The beach is literally 20 steps away from the room door! Staff was very friendly and informative! The room was not top of the line but was worth the view and still considerably nice!I would recommend this hotel to all friends and family!!

The proximity and view of the Pacific was amazing the newly refurbished rooms and pool were clean and stylish. Friendly staff. A highlight was sitting in the bar watching the ocean through the floor to ceiling windows. My only moan would be that we found the bar menu a little limiting for our tastes.
