We stayed for two nights and loved the location, view off the balcony, and clean room. They are building something (hotel or office building) right across the street but they didn't start hammering until 8:00. Hotel is on other end of aquarium and it only take 15 minutes to walk. The other direction is a 10 minute walk to the...

We were able to score an ocean front room on the 2nd floor. Nothing but ocean right off the balcony. Slept with the slider open with waves lulling us to sleep. Hotel totally worked with our wonky reservation and took care of us. Pizza delivery recommendation the first night was spot on. Teen daughter's favorite part was the bathroom and...

Hi Kristin, Thank you for the fantastic 5 star review! It was wonderful to read that you found your ocean view guest room to be so spectacular and that the waves just below your private balcony offered a serene evening of lulling waves as you drifted to sleep. We were also happy to hear that you enjoyed the recommendation and...

The room was nice -- good bedding and a large, well appointed bathroom. The balcony overlooking the cove and the park was a treat, especially as I awoke in time to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching a beautiful sunrise. Sometime later, while sitting in my room, sea gulls landed on the railing! The breakfast was delivered on time....

My wife and I stayed at the Monterey Bay Inn in celebration of her birthday. It is indeed about a 10 minute (brisk) walk to the Aquarium and the views of the bay are very much like the photo. The Inn provides an in-room continental breakfast, which was a nice experience. The bed was very comfortable. The downsides were that...

Beautiful views and good location, but lots of problems considering the price and other ratings. The problems started when the instructions they provided to use their wifi and internet were not accurate. After trying unsuccessfully several times, we called. They provided instructions, different from their written instructions, and it then worked. The following day, the wifi worked, but their system...

Hello TOR2007, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay.

I have been in a year long class that takes place in Monterey every 6-8 weeks. That said, I have stayed at all of the top ten highest rated hotels in Monterey. I wanted to give this one a try because it looked charming and was in a great location between Cannery Row and the Fisherman's Wharf. Let me start...

A comfortable hotel right on the water. Staff were helpful and a short walk to the restaurants on the pier. Great rooms overlooking the hotel. Bathrooms were fantastic. Large rooms with balcony and very comfortable beds.

Great hotel right on the beach! The bed was so comfortable and the staff was helpful and friendly! There was binoculars in the room which was awesome when we noticed a bunch of otters were near the coast and a school of dolphins came by for a show! We will definitely be back!

We stayed here in March and loved it! The room was gorgeous and also room service for breakfast is standard. The hotel is on the water but is only a short walk into town or to fishermans wharf. Would highly recommend a stay here.
