Monterey Tides, a Joie de Vivre Boutique Hotel$215Monterey Tides, a Joie de Vivre Boutique Hotel$215
Right across the street from the bay! Check in was a breeze. Room was decent. Bed and linens were great. Great price for the area. I've stayed in much worse places around Monterey for more money.
Lovers Point Inn$149Lovers Point Inn$149
Mid-Century Modern...Staying at the Asilomar is like getting into the "way-way back machine" and going back to the 1960's in a good way. It is very pleasant to be able to relax, without the distractions of television or even a room phone (but they do provide free Wi-Fi, so bring your iPad if you ...

The staff working the front desk were very kind and helpful. Our room was super comfortable! Very close walk to the boardwalk. I enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub.
Ocean Pacific Lodge$118Ocean Pacific Lodge$118
Lodge rooms are as pictured. Extremely comfortable beds and good facilities. View from room was peaceful (graveyard! not an issue for us), lovely to see deer strolling past the window in the morning.

We could park close to our unit which made it very easy to bring things in and out. Easy access to anywhere we wanted to go, but still very quiet.
Sea Breeze Inn And Cottages$134Sea Breeze Inn And Cottages$134
Last minute vacay and the hotel was the perfect spot to serve as homebase to explore town, beach and Big Sur. We stayed in the Family Suite and it was perfect for my fam of four. Breakfast was basic continental - waffle bar, eggs and fruit. My one con was that that elevator was broken, so lugging ...

Great facility with beautiful decor that is just like Carmel with a French twist. Heated pool was great and staff members were very friendly and helpful. The location is absolutely dynamite.
Normandy Inn$179Normandy Inn$179
Not the fanciest hotel in area, but homey and relaxed. Real seashore hotel and animal friendly too. Pool is small but adequate--sides need scrubbing but water appeared clear. Family-friendly. Bad point can be the parking. There are only so many spaces and one is supposed to have a permit like ticket. ...

The kitchen, living room with fireplace, and separate bedroom made it a delightful home away from home. We loved the fireplace inside, and the occasional deer wandering by outside.
