Twelve members of our Out Spokin' Bike Club stayed at the Monterey Tides. We loved that it was right on the beach and adjacent to the gorgeous coastal bike trail. We loved the ambiance of the property and the food in the restaurant.

If you want to get away from it all and really go somewhere where everyone is friendly, the food is good, and your dog is welcome ... this is the place. Our dog was welcomed with a sign outside, treats, and he was able to go anywhere in the hotel with us. He ran on the beach off the leash...

We recently spent an evening at the Monterey Tides, checking in at 6pm and departing around 8am. We prepaid for a Premium Oceanview Room with King bed and when we arrived, were given a ground floor room with limited view and two queens. After being advised there were no king beds available on the property, without an explanation or apology,...

It was right off the freeway exit! Excellent access to the beach. Great view with great location - very close to stores, restaurants, and gas station. It could be better with cheaper drinks. $3 for a cup of weak brewed coffee. Daily $50 pet fee was a bit much! There was a vent that stayed open; couldn't close when it...

The hotel is right on Monterey Bay. It has a beautiful setting. We were offed an early check-in option. We asked for that. We spent hours in the lobby waiting for our room. We did not get into our room until after 5PM. That was completely unacceptable.

We had our company retreat at the property and it was very nice, the conference meals were spot on, the panoramic views and natural daylight in our conference facilities made the day's work upbeat and productive. What a difference from low-light levels, and windowless rooms. The rooms were cozy, I recommend the rooms facing the waterfront.

This hotel is directly oceanfront of the Monterey Bay. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean was wonderful. It is good that our room did face the ocean so hear the sounds of the ocean because the walls are thin, and the people next to us had their tv cranked up. The reason I chose this hotel is that...

Easy to locate and the resort is right on the beach. The rooms are very nice and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I accidentally locked my safe and maintenance came quickly to open it. The food served at conference was very well prepared.

Monterey Tides provides a great oceanfront venue. The oceanfront rooms provide the sights and sounds of the Pacific. The recently remodeled rooms are decent and the staff are friendly. The main reason to stay here though is to enjoy the ocean.

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was very nice. The location is wonderful. We were on the ground floor, which made it easier with our suitcases. I am really glad we booked an ocean view room, there is not much landscaping on the other side of the building. The restaurant was too expensive to use daily. I would recommend...
