Family of 4 visiting Monterey for an extended weekend. We always wanted to stay at the Monterey Plaza but couldn't afford to do so until now. We have stayed at other hotels and B&Bs in the Monterey Peninsula, and this was, for the most part, our best stay.
Our assigned room was particularly large with 2 very comfortable Queens. Bathroom and room amenities were very clean and of good quality. Although our room overlooked the street leading to Cannery Row and the Aquarium, it was not noisy and we had a partial view of the Bay from our large windows.
The hotel overlooks the waterfront and is in an excellent location for biking and exploring Monterey. We had breakfast in the restaurant, and the food was fine, if a bit expensive for what you got, but the views overlooking the ocean more than made up for it.
It was also fun to go tidepooling underneath the piers that support the hotel and being able to stroll out to the waters edge looking at the sea life that clung to the tidepools. It was too cold to swim and there is no pool that my children could use at the hotel (adults only and connected to the hotel spa).
Would highly recommend and we would stay there again.
