We spent there one night and three rooms. We were so happy to stay there. Rooms were so clean and sleeping quality was excellent. Location is very good, short walking distance to Fisherman Warf. Breakfast next door was very good and small discout given to quests of the hotel. It was much more we expected! Highly recommended!

I oscillate between 4 and 5 stars for this lodge. The exterior is kept up but feels like a motel. The room itself was very nicely updated. It had a minifridge with complimentary waters. Parking is free and plentiful. We were given coupons for a small discount on breakfast at their next door restaurant. Consideration the type of accommodations, I...

Stayed for one night when it was wet and windy. Lady on arrival was lovely as she realised we had been overcharged by booking site so it was sorted and we were $30 better off result! Rooms are a bit dated and were slightly musty. Mould on some of the windows so they could do with big power clean. Small...

This is not a fancy place but is very clean and comfortable and the staff were great. Within walking distance to downtown, Fisherman's Wharf and even Cannery Row if you are energetic. Literally a block from the bay. I give them a big thumbs up for having coffee creamer in the room (as opposed to the awful powder stuff that...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed the stay. The price was reasonable and it's a great 2 level lodge. It is a short walk (about 15 min) to Fisherman's Pier with lots of restaurants and it's about a 30 minute walk to Cannery Row. It is also within walking distance of downtown which has...

Reasonably priced lodging with access to the water is hard to find in Monterey, or so I believe, without spending a fortune. I tend to like places off the beaten path and not in the cluster of tourists and this is just that kind of place. Location..location...location in which you don't need a car to get around the more popular...

This is a lovely hotel, a very short walk to the town centre. We particularly liked the tasteful room decoration with a seaside theme and friendly staff. The jacuzzi/spa and well heated outdoor pool were a great bonus.

My wife and I stayed at the Monterey Bay Lodge for one night during our honeymoon as we travelled along the coast. We had a ground floor room which was clean and well equipped although the decor felt a little dated. The ground floor room was very convenient as we were able to park our car right outside. The hotel...
