My husband, daughter, and I spent 5 days here from April 20-25. There are many great things about Monterey Bay...but there are also a few things that could be better.
-the staff was fantastic! Some of my favorite people at the hotel were the ones who served breakfast. They were always so upbeat and kind!
-the breakfast was pretty darn good and very filling!
-our view was gorgeous! We had a corner room with 2 balconies which gave use beautiful views in just about all directions.
-the parking garage. I have read many reviews about how difficult the parking garage can be due to how tight it is. I didn't have a single problem. I drive a full sized Honda Pilot and was able to park anywhere I pleased and get up and down the ramps without any problems. All it takes is a little time and understand that it's a parking garage, not the Indie 500. I loved being able to park right literally in the hotel, not across the street.
-the kitchen! I was pleasantly surprised to find all the amenities of home within the kitchen cupboards and a full sized stoves so I could cook dinner in our room.
-the rooms could use an update. My daughter and I ended up sleeping on the Murphy bed because the mattresses on the Queen beds were pretty darn hard as well as having itchy comforters. I understand this isn't the Ritz, but you would expect to be able to sleep comfortably where ever you go. Also, a couple kitchen tiles were falling off the wall and a lamp was broken upon arrival.
-the all around cleanliness of the room. I AM NOT saying that our room was in any way overly dirty. The housekeeping staff was great and did their jobs well...however, things can get easily overlooked. For example, two of our pillow cases were dirty (one had a big brown stain and the other had dried gum stuck to it). My other cleanliness complaint has to due with the air conditioners. Our second night we turned on the air conditioner in the bedroom and instead of blowing out cold air, it first spit out clumps of black dust and dirt.
All in all, Monterey Bay was a good choice for my family's vacation and we look forward to returning soon (to hopefully more comfortable beds).
