good value for the money in the heart of activity

A little noisy but all else a plus. We went during the Italian fest. Sept. 9 till the 11th so it did get a little crazy.

Good value - noisy

Our room was very nicely furnished in this beautifully renovated old hotel. Next time I would ask for a room away from the stairs or on the top floor because the sound of people talking or using the stairs was very loud in our room. Take the $17 valet parking offer if you plan to use the car a lot. They take your car to a lot one block away where you can self-park at $7 for a day, but with no in-and-out privileges. The location near the tacky Fisherman's Wharf was OK - a nice walk to the Cannery Row area. And the price is right.

Great Downtown location!

Great downtown location, 1 block from the Convention Center! Wonderful staff and breakfast. The hotel is older, which can be charming and unique. It is a bit rundown, but a great value. I would stay here again. It is worth is to upgrade to a room with two beds if are more than 1 person.

What a fabulous location!

I've been to Monterey more than 20 times in my life, but this was my first stay in the Monterey Hotel. The staff was quite pleasant and has a valet attendant available at any hour. It is cheaper to keep your car in the nearby public garage though if most of your trip is spent walking. The staff also made some excellent suggestions for the local night life. And surprisingly, we were upgraded to a suite! Very exciting. The rooms were quite nice and very clean. Here's my warning though to those of you who are ridiculously light sleepers... Since the hotel is over 100 years old and the original building has had limited rennovation- the constant creaks, groans, and poor wall insulation of the building allowed for a miserable sleep. Another cause of the incessant noise is the new addition of a new hotel wing in construction. My husband, who sleeps like the dead, even complained. Bring a sound machine or fan, or prepare to stay in much more expensive hotels around the location. We loved being in the heart of Monterey. There is quite a bit of nightlife and we found a restaurant/bar called Lallapalooza's. If you are in your 30s and appreciate grunge rock, a very tasteful ambiance and great dirty martinis, this is the place for you. Plus, they have late night appetizers. Definitely walk from Fisherman's Wharf to Cannery Row and eat at the Chart House. If you like hiking, plan a day to go to Pt. Lobos, a state park past Carmel. Gorgeous! Make sure to find China Beach. After our hike, we stopped by Ocean Street in Carmel. Make sure to plan your visit to Carmel early since most shops close around 6, even on the weekend.

great location

The location of the hotel was awesome! you literally had to walk out the door and there were tons of restaurants and people right there! The fishermans wharf was just a small walk away and the aquarium was less than a 5 minute drive. We were on the 4th floor of a hotel with no elevator, I am all for exercize but that was a long trek to get up to our room. The room was clean and well maintained but very small and the bed was as hard as a rock as well as the pillows. But all in all the hotel is worth staying at just because of the location

Location, location, location

Public parking is a block away. Valet service is available for $17 a day. Bell service to your room is prompt and friendly. Rooms are small but well maintained as is the bathroom. A good selection of cereals, beverages, bagels and toast for the complimentary breakfast. Right in the middle of downtown Monterey. One caveat is the building of an addition to the hotel. Constuction was at a halt during our stay; however if it begins again it could be noisy during the day.

Absolutely charming

There isn't a better location if you want to experience the real Monterey: historic tours, fantastic and diverse restaurants, charming shops, fisherman's wharf are all outside the door. This hotel made us feel like we were in Europe. Plus they're in the process of adding a new wing with a fitness center and additional amenities.
