Indoor Pool in Monterey, Carmel or Nearby??

For our 4 year old, a vacation just isn't a vacation without a pool. We want to visit the Monterey acquarium, Big Sur and the Carmel-By-The-Sea area for several nights in late October. Though many hotels in this area have outdoor pools, some even heated, my guess is it will be fairly chilly at that time of year for an outdoor pool. I scoured the AAA book for hotels in the area with indoor pools, but found only the Monterey Clarion. This hotel has mixed reviews and we were hoping to stay somewhere more upscale if possible.

We will be traveling down from Oakland for the stay and would appreciate any recommendations people may have. Inland roadside choices along the way would not be what we were looking for.

Embassy Suites has a very nice indoor pool. It's not in a scenic area, but it's close to everything and is a nice place, Check it out.

Well, I just stayed at the Clarion last month and thought it was a good value, but it is not really upscale. It does, however, have a very nice indoor pool/spa area. It is also close to downtown.

Another option may be to take her to the Monterey Sports Center, which has an indoor pool. monterey.org/sportscenter/hours.html#Pools
