The Location is superb, we got the ocean room view and the morning view from the Balcony is also amazing

They offer continental breakfast that is delivered to your door which is nice and easy. Couldn’t close the blinds all the way so we woke up to the sun

Very nice hotel, clean rooms, nice hot tub, in walking distance to all the shops and the wharf, we loved it!

Great hotel. I would come back any time. I recommend bay view rather than Ocean view. The second is more expensive but the cold wind hits you directly while in the bay view you are more protected from the wind which makes it more comfortable to sit on the balcony and the views are still great.

Everything was perfect great location and service a lot to do and walking distance to everything

Close to beach And cannery row and places to eat love the trolly system.

Location was by the bay , but the sounds of the sea lions all night long , they sounds like crying dogs , so annoying, room small nothing expectional to be that expensive, it has two small hot tubs ( plastic hot tubs) , no pool , They offer breakfast, you choose from a menu and they will deliver the next morning ( sounds nice, right ) except it so boring menu and it’s the exact same every day .. you will be so sick of boiled eggs and yogurt after couple of days.

Rooms are updated nicely. Friendly staff, short walk from both near Fisherman’s Wharf and Cannery Row. So, you are in the heart of food and shopping! Charm of a older property, just a little noise from a squeaky floor on the third floor above us, but we would stay there again.

Beth made my birthday EXTRA special!!! Beautiful views, great hot tubs and comfortable beds.

This hotel is in a very good location, staff was great and the room was clean. But for the huge price I paid I definitely expected more and I was pretty disappointed because of that. The carpets, the building, parking and other facilities are out dated. The breakfast was nothing great but just couple of pastries and fruits. Overall I would have been happy if I paid about $150 to $200 for a partial harbor view room, but for $400 plus additional $22 parking fee it is not worth it. I will not come back.

We had a wonderful stay here. The hotel itself was simple and small but had everything we needed. The walk to the beach was a few steps away and we were close to all Monterey main attractions. We love the breakfast delivery as well as the turn down service. We will definitely stay here again!

It's a nice clean place with excellent location next to the Aquarium. Breakfast with fresh fruit and pastry are delivered to your room. It's a nice pleasant stay. However, the rate is ridiculously high.

We stayed for a week to explore the country of Steinbeck and the Beach Boys’s “ California Saga “ . Great room with balcony overlooking Monterey harbour . Nicely furnished with king sized bed . Large bathroom with plenty of storage space for clothes. Very clean and well maintained. No restaurant but an extensive continental breakfast is provided delivered to your room with daily newspaper. Staff were very friendly and helpful . Ideally situated at the beginning of Cannery Row ....restaurants , Fisherman’s Wharf , Aquarium etc all within close walking distance . Would definitely use again

We stayed in an ocean view balcony room on Christmas Eve and everything was just perfect. The room, binoculars, breakfast tray with the adorable xmas cookies, big bathroom, and watching lots of sea otters in the water a short distance from our balcony just made the holiday that much happier.

The best part of our stay at the Monterey Bay Inn was the view from our Oceanfront room! Every morning we were captivated by the wildlife just outside our door, and we were extremely thankful for the binoculars provided by the hotel. Room was small, but clean, with large, updated bathroom. Continental breakfast was a plus, but we wish there was a microwave in the room. Parking spaces are very small.

Great staff and clean and comfortable room. Great location and loved the continental breakfast.

The experience was great. We have stayed at this hotel before, and then front desk staff are super helpful and the rooms are nice and clean. We stayed in an oceanfront room, and the views were spectacular!
