Beautiful hotel with beautiful views

Posted Jul 19, 2014
My husband and I stayed for our anniversary and enjoyed every second of it. The staff was friendly and we got into our room an hour before check in. The view from our room was gorgeous and we enjoyed our complimentary breakfast on the patio looking out to the bay.

Right on Cannery Row

Posted Jul 18, 2014
Pros: Its location and clean accommodations.
Location: See above
Accommodations were modern and clean. Staff was friendly, professional and efficient. The morning breakfast saved us from having to go out for a meal. We walked to the aquarium, cannery row and fisherman's wharf. We didn't have to take the car out one time.

Don't judge the book by it's cover

Posted Jul 17, 2014
Not much to look at from the outside, but the inside does not disappoint. Rooms are clean and bed was very comfortable. Loved having the ocean view and slept with the balcony door open to hear the ocean. Breakfast was good and the bathroom luxurious! Overall, excellent stay. Will book again!

Great small hotel right on the water

Posted Jun 13, 2014
Pros: Hotel staff were responsive. Complimentary continental breakfast and paper a nice touch. Great location in Monterey.
Cons: The spots in the parking garage can be a tight squeeze if you have a larger car.
Location: Scuba diving right next door, at one end of Cannery Row so not too noisy, lovely park by the hotel animal lovers delight with seals, otters in the bay
Near a marine mammal sanctuary - lots of wildlife. People scuba dive in the park beside the hotel. Right on the water so lovely views. Cared for environment - pretty on the eyes - great food nearby in Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. Spent time in the hot tub overlooking the Bay. All in all a great hotel in a great location.

Great hotel, great location.

Posted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: The location and the breakfast!
Cons: Be warned - the sea lions can get pretty noisy. So you have to choose between listening to the surf and keeping your patio door shut.
Location: It was nice to be right on the coastal trail and close to the beach.
The Monterrey Bay Inn is right between Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row which is perfect for sight seeing. You can walk out the door and be on the coastal trail which is ideal for running, walking, biking, etc. And you are right next door to a beach with great walk-in access for diving or kayaking. While the lobby is minimal, the rooms are very comfortable, modern and spacious, and overlook the park and ocean. Also, having a complimentary breakfast delivered at a time of your choosing is a real treat! Fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries, hard-boiled egg - it was perfect!

Misleading Description

Posted May 30, 2014
Great room, great location BUT we were sold a room clearly described as with "VIEW" This "view" turned out to be of a 3 story carpark - upgrade $60 - no thankyou.

Well appointed rooms in great location

Posted May 26, 2014
We were only here for one night, but will definitely return and truly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is right on the water at the opposite end of Cannery Row from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. This means it is only a nice walk along the water to the Aquarium or Old Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row really begins right outside the front door. The hotel has parking and while there is a charge, it's great to have this right there in this area where parking can be very difficult at times. The rooms all have water views ranging from just off the water to hanging right out over the water and are nicely appointed. The bathrooms where large and very well thought out from both a comfort and functional standpoint, two sinks, magnifying mirror, separate toilet, large closet right off the bathroom, those kind of touches with high end finishes thrown in. The hotel has a very nice open patio on the second floor with a fire pit for the evening and a hot tub as well. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful Room and Staff

Posted May 19, 2014
Pros: Everything including the breakfast served in the room.
Location: At the start of Cannery row
What a delightful hotel. We stayed here two nights and had a room facing the park and could see the sea from our balcony. Lots of wildlife so the binoculars provided in the room came in very handy for watching seals, birds etc. Nice big flat screen TV with HD channels. Super helpful staff.
