Bay Park Hotel
Ranked #47 of 56 Hotels in Monterey
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Although our reason for choosing Bay Park Hotel was its pet friendly policy, we let our son watch the puppy and enjoyed our stay without her. Our queen room had a loveseat giving it a suite feel. The room was clean and modern with a delicious restaurant steps away from the room filled with help that wanted nothing more than our satisfaction. I was pleased at the budget price and the 5 star hospitality.

Room Tip: Building 1, 200 floor, doors away from the restaurant!

I'm going to keep it simple. 1. Read TA reviews before choosing hotel. 2. Believe what you read. 3. If you choose to stay here anyway bring earplugs. The bed is comfortable but this hotel overlooks a gas station so there is no way you can avoid hearing car doors slamming, horns honking, car alarms beeping, and the occasional crash (at 6:30 am). Also the sounds of toilets flushing very loudly every 2 minutes is not the soothing sounds if water you might hope for. We stayed here to try and save $100 but a good night's sleep is priceless (especially on vacation.)

The hotel has a good location if you have a car: halfway between downtown Monterey and Carmel, so quick to get to either for dinner or touring, and right off Rte. 1, 5 min from the airport. Hotel is clean, average size rooms, all necessary amenities with flat-screen tvs (just standard channels), dvd player and free (albeit at times slooow) wi-fi in rooms. Nothing exceptional and nothing horrible. The only problem in our block (we had room 219) was a deafening noise, like a truck starting over your head, that would come on and off at various times; wasn't bad in the bedroom, as the noise from the ac/heating unit drowned it out, but pretty startling in the bathroom. While the rooms with a view toward Monterey may seem more desirable, the hotel is over a busy intersection and thus I'd suggest the rooms in the back, facing the woods, for a quieter stay.

Room Tip: Back of the hotel, facing the woods

Very nice place. Clean, well-kept. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very nice, very fresh, clean and had all the amenities. Within minutes to all the attractions and easy access to Hwy. 1. We will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: If you have a choice, stay on the second level - our room had a partial view of the bay.

This was a great place. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. We had not complants. The room was spacious. We felt very at home. Would come back again. The front desk was very helpful. We were traveling for both business and personal.

My husband and I stayed here for a getaway to Monterey. The hotel was in a good location right off the highway, and within several miles of the pier, and the 17 mile drive. We were not happy with our original room, which for some reason was a "single", when we requested a queen size bed for 2 people. The room was so cramped! We had already unloaded all our luggage, and had to go down to request another room. They did give us a larger "upgraded" room, which looked exactly the same but was much larger. They had told us they'd only be able to give it to us for that night, but my husband talked to them and they let us stay there for the next 2 nights of our stay as well. The bathroom was handicap accessible and large. The bed was about the same size though. The room did not have an inviting feeling, since one of the walls looks like a jail cell with the block wall. We enjoyed using the spa, which is pretty secluded. We had a hard time finding it! There was a bit of noise, but it is next to a freeway. There is also a strange older man that works behind the front desk. My hubby walked over to the restaurant/bar area to check it out (it was closed at this time) and he told him he couldn't go in there because he might be "from the health department". We had a good laugh about that later. I would probably not stay here again.

Room Tip: This place is kind of set up like an apartment building, so there are large sliding door windows whi...

this hotel needs an overhaul...dirty dank carpets in the room, urine odors everywhere, cell block appearance to all the rooms, dingy dark and grotty hallways to the rooms (we were down stairs), and SUPER LOUD...from constant freeway noise and old plumbing....i know it is expensive here, but i will pay the extra 50/100 or whatever it is next time....this bedspread on my bed is disgusting....EWWwwwwwwwwwwwwww!
