For our 55th anniversary we wanted to be in a quiet refuge within walking distance of the fun places. Monterey Bay Inn is about midway between Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row, and moderate walking distance from the aquarium. We didn't use our car and a half days we were there. From the room's balcony we could watch families and divers on San Carlos beach and see boats come and go at the marina. A young woman at the desk helped us figure out which whale watching company best fit us and gave us information on how to reserve our spots. The room was nicely furnished with two comfortable easy chairs. The lighting was great in both the bedroom and bathroom. We really appreciated the freshness of the air in the room, unlike in so many hotels. (PS. The cookies in the lobby were yummy.) We found the continental breakfast that was brought to our room each morning at our choice of times more pleasant than a buffet breakfast.
We were looking for a nice hotel to go and relax for one night. We have been to Monterey many times so sight seeing was not our goal for our trip. We stayed in a harbor/ocean view room and it was worth the extra 40 dollars, we ended up ordering room service for dinner and ate on our balcony. The parking was easy and they allow you to park before and after check in/out. The bed was very comfortable and also had the same awesome view. The room was clean and the bathroom was large and spa like with many amenities. The breakfast was fruit, yogurt, muffins and a pot of coffee. The complimentary Continental breakfast is brought to your room at a time you choose the day before. The staff was very nice and helpful.
Every time we stay in this hotel we are glad we did. The rooms were very clean, and we had a room on the fourth floor overlooking the bay view. It was restful at night listening to the ocean waves and harbor seals. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and the hotel gave us complementary water and chocolates. Very thoughtful. They also included a nice assortment of muffins, fruit, yogurt, and teas for breakfast. To park there was extra, but that isn't unusual in the cannery area. If you wait for good price deals, as we did, definitely the stay was worth it for us. If you want to do scuba or kayak, there are businesses in short walking distance. We will be back.
Booked this hotel based on its location on the water and the great tripadvisor reviews. The outside isn't much to look at but the inside is beautiful. Very clean and spacious room with lovely spa like bathroom. The bed was comfortable and we were pleasantly surprised by turn down service with chocolates and the in-room continental breakfast (included) at the time we chose. The room had a Keurig coffee machine and a mini fridge as well as an honor bar for snacks and other tourist items. Located on Cannery Row, shopping and restaurants are within walking distance with the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf nearby. We also loved the paved recreation trail that runs along the waterfront area where many people were walking, running, and biking. Our room had a small balcony near the street with a water view and the waves gently lapping the beach could be heard from the room. The only con may have been the traffic noise from the street when the window was open. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.
