This hotel was beautiful with high standards. We enjoyed our time here. The concierge arranged several trips recommended, including the aquarium which is cheaper booked through the hotel, than direct. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We loved the fire indoors and the fire pit outside looking over the harbour.

We loved everything about it. Our room had an amazing view and was extremely quiet. Loved watching the otters from our room. Hotel staff was spot on! They even took us back and forth to dinner. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Highly recommend it!!

Spent two nights at the Inn. Requested a top floor room overlooking the bay. They gave us room 415, top floor, corner room. Well appointed and clean. Easy walking distance to shops and the restaurants we visited. While the continental breakfast was minimal and the fact that there are no microwaves, I would recommend staying here. But, like I mentioned,... More

Also if you walk in the... More

Wonderful location. The aquarium is close b and the views are awesome. The restaurants on location were excellent and most importantly - a comfortable bed. The room was clean, had plenty of towels. a stocked refrigerator and 'good' coffee in the room. The staff was very accommodating and helpful.

What an exceptional experience! From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel at home. The first thing we did was take out the complimentary bikes and ended up seeing dolphins right in front of the hotel. The town is so charming and while we tried a restaurant outside , the hotel food was by far the best thing... More

I saw this hotel online and called to make a reservation. The gal I spoke with was incredibly sweet, helpful, professional and patient. I just can't say enough about how she represented the hotel. Between the call and the pictures online our expectations were probably not realistic, but when we arrived they actually were exceeded! It was our anniversary and... More

I have traveled extensively and live in a resort destination. Monterey Plaza Hotel is my favorite hotel anywhere. I have written 2 other reviews for this hotel over the years and it never fails to get even more fabulous with each visit. This past trip in May, we rented very reasonably priced kayaks across the street from MPH and paddled... More

Loved everything about staying at this hotel! From the second you walked in the doors the employees were all so friendly and helpful! Our room was huge and very clean!
