Good location, lovely view, and positive experience

October 16, 2019
We stayed on the top floor, with bay view in a spacious, well-designed room. There was a lovely balcony to sit on and enjoy an afternoon cocktail, and inside we had a sitting area with 2 comfortable chairs and TV. The room had a king-sized bed, desk and a beverage station with refrigerator and coffee-maker. The bathroom had a spacious double vanity with a tub/shower combo, and a private water closet. The hotel is not on Cannery Row, and so was relatively quiet at night, but still an easy walk to the main attractions and numerous restaurants. We also had no problem in finding our way to the 17-mile drive around Pebble Beach or going to Big Sur. The only negative was a bit of elevator repair which made us walk the stairs, but that just helped burn off a few calories from some wonderful restaurant experiences!   ~ Guest

Great location for easy access to pier, aquarium and food!

We chose the Monterey Bay Inn for our one night stay in Monterey for their location, the included breakfast, and the self-parking. With a baby, we have a lot of stuff when on a road trip, and I just don't like dealing with valet and access to my car when we might need to run and get something. The location was perfect because it was about a 10-15 minute stroll to the aquarium and about the same to Fisherman's Wharf. Self-parking for $23 is easy and right under the hotel and we didn't have to deal with gates, entry cards, or anything like that. We got there really early after driving in from SF and I thought I would just park the car and just head to the aquarium, but I guess they weren't full and allowed us to check in! With a baby, that was such a pleasant surprise to be able to get into the room, feed and change him, unload our stuff so we wouldn't have to deal with it later. The Inn only has 49 rooms and three floors of rooms. We were on the 3rd and chose a Cannery Row view for cost savings. If you plan on staying in the room during the day, it can be a bit noisy, but since we were going to be out all day and leaving the next morning, I didn't really want to pay extra for a view. We still got a balcony and it was great for our baby to be able to people and car watch. The room was clean and the bathroom was huge, but I think it might have been a handicapable bathroom because it had bars in the shower. Fine by me because it was great for our small tub that we had for the baby and plenty of room everywhere. The hubs kept commenting on how big the room was and I think it was the configuration that did make it feel roomy with the bed facing the balcony. They don't have cribs there, but that's okay since we had our own Pack n Play and as mentioned before, the room was large enough. The decor isn't a modern look, but it was fine for us and what was most important to us was that everything was clean. They had Aveda amenities in the bathroom, but I wish they did have liquid body soap instead of the bar soap. Other than that, our stay was great, check out was a breeze and Kairee (sorry, didn't get to see your name badge!) at the front desk was professional and kind. I've already recommended it to my friends who asked where I stayed!   ~ Guest
