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

Was away on a anniversary trip with my husband. Being a weekend in the summer the rate was high. The hotel was very clean, and we had a great view from our room. The hotel was great. Front desk staff was helpful. I think for the rate I would expect more amenities or services, but I guess it is about... More

This small beautiful Inn seems to get better each time we return. This trip our room had new carpeting, new furniture and even more attention to detail by the staff. First of all, most of the elegant rooms have a view of the bay---which can't be overrated---ocean breezes, watching the otters from the balcony with hotel provided binoculars , leisurely... More

My husband and I have been staying here for many years. We like being right next to San Carlos Beach. We prefer the harbor view room because it overlooks the beach. Location is good and within walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf and the Aquaium. When the Trolley is running, there are two stops close by. The continental breakfast is perfect... More

Great place to stay. A tiny dated, but the view and the hospitality is worth it. I wouldn't say it's the cleanest. And there are parts of it that feel rundown and you expect more. But if all you want to do is relax in front of the beautiful bay, get your breakfast served to you in your room and... More

Room was excellent. Very well appointed. Cozy yet elegant. View was outstanding. Bathroom was large and updated. Excellent customer service. I was greeted and treated like family. Treats in the lobby of cookies. Hair dryer didn't get hot, called the front desk and had another one within minutes! No complaints and I will be back.

This was a last minute road trip for my wife and I. Just happened upon the room on Hotels Tonight. For a clean, comfortable and location right on the water? I could not afford not to book the room. It was perfect. I should have stepped up and booked the room overlooking the ocean and that would have made it... More

Staff was friendly and personable. The rooms were comfortable except for the noise from street traffic. Came with a complimentary breakfast which was just enough food to start your day. Good deal for the price of the room. We would stay there again.

The Monterey Bay Inn is on San Carlos Beach, about halfway between the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Old Fisherman's Wharf. Because it is away from the Aquarium and at the other end of Cannery Row, it is a very quiet location. The rooms are very clean and the views are amazing. We stayed in room 309 which looks out at...
