A gem right on the bay!
June 24, 2019
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
I stayed at the Monterey Bay Inn on a college trip with my son. We happened upon this place when we made a last minute change in plans. The Inn is wonderful. Bethany at the desk felt like a long term friend - ensuring we had everyone we needed. The Inn's location is perfect - walking distance to the best sights and restaurants in Monterey. The two hot tubs - one on the second floor where there is also a fire - and one on the fourth floor - were a really nice surprise. The wildlife and beautiful water views were lovely. I highly recommend staying here! ~ Guest
