Hidden Gem - Great Place!
July 12, 2019
We found the Monterey Bay Inn after an unfortunate experience with another hotel and last minute found this hidden gem. Rooms were spacious, clean and the views are outstanding. My kids watched the sea lions, birds, otters, whales and lots of boats for hours on the balcony. The breakfast delivered to our room every morning was great and the service staff is so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone looking for a great place on Cannery Row. ~ Guest
The outside of this property may look a little plain in the pictures, but the rooms are lovely. We had a private balcony from which we could hear the surf crashing and view the bay with its marine life. We spotted at least one otter each day, and on the morning of our departure there was a regular "otter party" of 9 within sight. Each room has a pair of binoculars to help with viewing. You can have coffee or tea delivered to your room each morning along with continental breakfast. That was fine for me but my husband prefers a heartier breakfast, which we found elsewhere. Also, the bread served with the continental breakfast was mostly sweet rolls, which I do not care for. If we return to Monterey, we would definitely choose this place again! ~ Guest
