3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

So this is a difficult review to write... The hotel itself has some stunning views over the whole bay and was one of the reasons we chose it. Our room was really well appointed, good space, clean and well decorated, really comfortable bed and seating area as well as our own balcony. Bathing facilities were top-notch, there was also guest... More

I spent a lot of time reviewing hotels and deciding the perfect place on the coast to spend the last few days of our vacation trip after spending time in Sonoma. I had been to Monterey years ago and wanted to go back. I thought the Monterey Bay Inn seemed like a great place to end the trip. We booked... More

For our anniversary we splurged and booked a room with a balcony facing not directly out onto the bay but Northeast up the bay. The bed, linens, bathroom were 5 star. The view was fantastic and it was great to sit out on the balcony at night and watch the fishing boats. In the morning, sitting on the balcony, eating... More

From start to finish our vacation stay was simply fantastic. We truly enjoyed the whole experience. Great location, well appointed and designed rooms and the bay and ocean view was absoutely awesome. If you like the sound of the birds, seals and surf, you will not experience a better night's sleep anywhere else!

Clean, spacious and comfy with a perfect location - right next to cannery row and walking distance to downtown. Quite pricey but when worth it. Even with a room on the side of the building, the view was amazing. Breakfast in bed was just right!

Great hotel. Stayed in a panoramic view room, which was well worth the price. Hotel staff was extremely polite. Location is great to walk to the aquarium or the fisherman's warf. Also there was free breakfast brought to your room which was simple but very good. Parking was decent but might be troublesome if you have a truck or Suv.... More

The location of this hotel is lovely, just outside the main town, which is only around 5-10 minute walk away. Free trolly bus service if you don't want to walk just outside the hotel, this also takes you the other way down town. Room really comfortable and clean, great views over the bay. Parking is available if you have a... More

Not quite 5 star but a pleasant stay, large spacious rooms in a good location. Only disappointment was having requested connecting rooms we were placed on separate floor. Complimentary breakfast was good and a nice touch in the room. Also wanted to say a big thank you to the staff who forwarded on my wife's kindle when she left it... More
