We found the Monterey Bay Inn (MBI) by looking on the internet. I plan most of my trips accounting for every single day but I always leave a few days where I "wing it". We found the MBI on one of the "wing it" days. So, glad I did. My lady loved it. So much that when I was planning...

This hotel is in the perfect location right at the start of canary row with a 10 minute walk to the aquarium and another 12/15 minute walk to fisherman walk so basically dead centre for everything. We had an ocean view room a bit more expensive but worth it as you get a complete view of the bay and harbour....

Lovely large and comfortable room with views to die for. Sea Otters frolicking just below our balcony. Decorated in a luxury style that reminded me of the 60's/70's. Electric faux fireplace straight from the Brady Bunch, but beautifully done. Continental breakfast delivered to the door each morning was a nice touch. If you're into the latest interior design this hotel...

Not the prettiest of buildings but the sea view room made up for that. Quite expensive and no facilities outside of the room ie no bar or restaurant. Quirky continental breakfast delivered to the room if required which was very nice. They seem to work closely with the Hotel next door so i would assume they are owned by the...

Traveling from the east coast, it was difficult to decide where to stay in Monterey. I finally called the Monterey Bay Inn and spoke to a young man named Quinn. He was extremely helpful and knowledge about all of the local inns along the coast. I decide on an ocean view room at Monterey Bay Inn. We were completely pleased...

Bottom line, great location (especially if you're a SCUBA diver), great views of the bay, friendly staff, nicely appointed rooms, and wonderful amenities all make this Inn a great value. One downside is noise travel between rooms. The Inn's location is steps away from the San Carlos Beach Park, breakwater and Fisherman's Wharf, to the south; Cannery Row, and the...

My wife and I just finished a wonderful week in Monterey and we stayed at the Monterey Bay Inn. It is located right at the start of Cannery Row with almost all rooms having an ocean view. They offer a continental breakfast delivered to your room (and, you choose the time). They also provide a very nice robe for your...

Really lovely hotel on the sea front , wonderful comfortable beds. Had sofa bed for son but this was more than adequate. Only thing I would mention is we could have done with another blanket. Easy walk to Fisherman Wharf and restaurants. Lovely hot tubs on roof but we did not get time to use.

The hotel is a lovely property with a nice location. Christy was very welcoming. She checked my party in and out and sent us a nice amenity for our special occasion. Much appreciated! Stacy was excellent as well! She helped my friend and I get tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Whale watching for a good price. Overall a...
