Our second time at the Monterey Bay Inn and again it was great, We had friends with us this time and they loved the place we could not get them out their room. The views over the bay are the best ever, we saw Seals, Sea Otters and the most beautiful Sunrise.
The Breakfast is really good I cannot fault the place. It was our 25th wedding anniversary
and the staff gave us a signed card and a bottle of wine we were really chuffed with this.
We will be back

Loved the hotel. Very nice location, rooms clean and very comfortable. Continental breakfast delivered to the door was nice too. Walking distance to the aquarium was a nice plus.

I loved this hotel because it was easy to walk to almost all the tourist locations. I thought that the personnel attended to all my needs and offered so many suggestions, even ones that were not recommended elsewhere. Since I was traveling alone, I felt very well taken care of and loved the pampering of breakfast in your room in the morning and turn down service in the evening with lovely chocolates. I felt that the room was very comfortable and it was very quiet at night. The hotel is ideal for someone who does not have a car and would like to walk to all the attractions without actually having this location feel very touristic. The coastal recreational trails provided hours of easy walking opportunities to admire plants and wildlife. The restaurants across from the park, just outside the hotel were some of the nicest casual dining experiences.

I was on business in Monterey during the week and my wife wanted to extend our stay with a waterfront room for the weekend. She visit several and choose the Monterey Bay Inn. We had a very enjoyable stay. The location is great, the staff was excellent and the rooms was awesome. I would highly recommend the Monterey Bay Inn.

An beautiful place to relax -- the fresh smell of the sea air when you walk out on the balcony, a comfortable bed, and friendly staff. The bathroom is like a minispa with it's inviting decor and lovely smelling products. All this walking distance from excellent restaurants and scenic places to explore.

Hi enjoyed a very pleasant stay at the hotel we initially had a harbour view room but switched to a full bay view. Great room with outstanding view over the Ocean and all of of its wild life. Particularly liked the position of the hotel walking distance from the restaurants and other attractions of Monterey but in a quiet location. Bathroom was terrific would put a lot of luxury hotels to shame. Very helpful staff who could not do enough for us. Town was busy due to big golf tournament at nearby pebble beach but the young man doing our turn down was most helpful and got us reservations for dinner at a nearby restaurant on the pier which was mostly used by locals and was superb. Will definetly return.

My wife and i visited Monterey California from Buffalo NY. and stayed at the Monterey Bay Inn. We faced the Bay. What a view. Sea gulls and otters seen from the room. The room was Very Comfortable...Clean. The bed was very comfortable. The staff very friendly. A nice continental breakfast in your room. The inn was at the beginning of Cannery Row and close to its restaurants shops and aquarium. It is also close to the downtown historical district and wharf. . I highly recommend this place.

E and E.
