We've been visiting The Clement since it opened, because it's wonderful location - it is right next to the aquarium - it's nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. If you want to stay in that area and an oceanfront room, you should definitely consider The Clement. The restaurant and bar (with outdoor seating) all have an ocean view, so you can see the otters, seals and birds, as well as the occasional dolphin directly while being there.
The breakfast is based on a menu, no buffet, and has the usual options, however very well done: more upscale. It has some healthy morning options, too. However if I would stay for a week, it would get repetitive.
The dinner menu is also well balanced, especially that they use the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program in their selection, I found very positive.
The hotel is not cheap, especially if you book an oceanfront room (why would you want a room facing the parking structure on the other side, when you are visiting Monterey?).
