“Nice place to visit”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

It was my 1st time staying at Monterey Bay Suites. Overall, it is a great place for the price. The hot/cold buffet every morning was nice. The staff were pleasant and easy to work with.

The towels in our suite always had a smell of grease. The ones at the hot tub & indoor pool were not bad. Service to the room was slow.

First off, let me say that we are not overly picky people and we don't just look for something to complain about. You can find something wrong with anything if you try hard enough! This is not the Hilton but for the price, you can NOT beat the value, accomodations, & service you get! After searching for several months for a decent place for my husband and I to stay for our honeymoon, I finally decided to go with Monterey. I was skeptical after reading about 100 reviews from previous guests, but we agreed to give it a chance and went ahead and booked! Upon booking, we explained that it was going to be for our honeymoon and we noticed there was a 10th floor rooftop pool & we requested that we get a room that wasn't very close to that pool (in case of the noise.) The associate explained that they could put it in the "comments" as a request but could not "promise" a specific floor, and we were fine with that & appreciated her kindness, help, & honesty. We booked directly with the hotel as apposed to booking through a travel site, & received a much better rate by doing so ! So, a couple months later & we arrive to our much needed honeymoon and vacation! Upon arrival, we did notice (as other reviews had said) that the parking was "tight" but my little car maneuvered around without any problems. The front desk staff were very polite in greeting us and prompt in checking us in! We made our way to our room (which was 1 floor above the rooftop pool and the floors are open) so we were a little worried that we'd get some noise from it, but we didnt at all! We went during the start of the "off-season" so it wasn't too crowded. We enter our room and check it out & we were very pleased! It was just as shown in the photos and better than we even expected! The room was clean, had adequate accommodations, & suited our needs. The kitchen was a little tight but we didnt mind at all, it worked for us & was quite updated as apposed to other places I've stayed in MB. We absolutely loved the view from the balcony, it was an "angle ocean view" and (in my opinion) was just as good as oceanfront ! We had our room cleaned every day and new towels. The cleaning staff was all very nice and accommodated any requests we had. We also noticed a lot of complaing reviews about the free breakfast. First off, it was FREE BREAKFAST (a meal every day we stayed that we didnt have to pay for, saving us a good bit of money!) They had a pretty large selection ranging from toast and cereal to eggs, sasuage, breakfast casseroles to fresh fruit! We were very pleased with it and had no complaints at all and found the view of the ocean from the lobby very awesome. Also, the serving staff was all very polite and the portions were plenty for us! Another thing that we loved and made an impression on us was that they had bible verses on the menu board each morning! The pools were nice and cleaned every morning. Great access to the beach! We thoroughly enjoyed our five day stay at Monterey Bay and hope to make it a special vacation as often as possible ! Also, P.S- I am a real person, I am not a worker of the hotel trying to make it look good, nor did they ask or persuade me in any way to write this ! See for yourself. We WILL be back !!

This is by far the best hotel we have been to. Every staff member was so nice and welcoming. We didn't feel like a customer. We were welcomed by every staff member. The service desk was fast and efficient, and let us know everything we needed at check-in. Everything was clean. The housekeeping was superb. They kept us well stocked, and were not intrusive. She was also very polite and professional. The dining staff made our mornings. It was great to wake up and see their smiling faces and having conversations with them. They were just so happy! Even the night security gaurd was happy and felt like a neighbor. I really enjoyed the heated indoor pools and jacuzzi. Every "fellow vacationer" was happy with the hotel and staff. I wanted to take every staff member home with me! It is located on ocean blvd., but in a quiet area (I beleive there were 2 other hotels). We were about 2 minutes drive to the shops on ocean blvd..We have found our "permanent, vacation" hotel. Very kid-friendly. Great price,too.

Room Tip: Higher floors were quietest. Also, end suites provide two views of ocean.

I was nervous at first because of some of the reviews I read but turned out to be a wonderful stay. All of the staff was nice and breakfast was great. The location was good and rooms meet all of our needs. The only one thing I disliked was tight parking for suv but my husband a great driver so it worked out. We plan on coming back next year for spring break.

We had a good time at this hotel. And going back this year. Hope our vacation would be as nice as last year. I have checked a lot of the places before booking Monterey bay again just because I like to try new hotels in a different areas. But I didn't find the same deal for that kind of a hotel.
People there work really hard.

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we decided to give Monteray Bay Suites a try. It is not a luxury resort or condo. If that is what you are looking for, keep looking. I will admit I was a little skeptical when we first walked in but after being here for 4 days I would come back and would recommend Monteray to couples and famlies. Positives: a great value, good free breakfast with hot and cold items, right on the beach, several pools (l0th floor, indoor pool/lazy river/kiddie pool, and outdoor heated pool), hot tubs, small excercise room, parking right outside our door, very friendly and helpful staff at the desk and at breakfast, free wifi, 2 flat screen TV's in room. Not so positives: It is not a new place so you will notice some wear and the room is just average with the essentials. It was just my husband and I and we had an ocean view executive suite. It was fine for us but would be tight for a family of 4-6. We had no problem with parking or elevators but we were there during off season. The heated indoor and outdoor pools are wonderful when the weather is cooler or rainy - we loved them and so did families with children.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Monterey Bay Suites. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was very nice and clean and room service was excellent. The pool areas were always clean and the breakfast was delicious. We would definitely recommend staying here. Of course we were not crazy about the parking but once we got the hang of it, it wasn't bad at all. :-)

Room Tip: We had an oceanfront suite on the 5th floor. The view was awesome!
