Stayed here as part of a month long trip to CA. Always wanted to visit Monterey but found finding accomodation difficult and what was available was very expensive.
Managed to book two rooms at the Merritt Inn in advance and received nice welcome from the proprietor on arrival. "Are you here for the Moto GP?" he asked. I had no idea it was on! We had only closen to stay Fri and Sat before the Moto GP at nearby Laguna Seca - no wonder I struggled with accomodation!
However all went well. Rooms were really nice. Spacious high ceilinged affairs with big bathrooms and located above the parking garages at the rear.
Location ideal - a short walk from Fishermans Wharf and not too far from Cannery Row. The bikers were a very friendly bunch and there was a real carnival atmosphere in town, The motorbike line up on Canery Row on the eve of the race was awesome.
Breakfast was excellent but the dining area was much too small to seat all guests so we had to wait for a space.
Went whale watching and saw a blue and some humpbacks as well as being entertained by a crazy female marine biologist!! Also did the 17 mile drive and visited pebble Beach for drinks. Fish restuarants at the wharf mostly good - we tried two.
Really enjoyed Monterey - a bit cooler than expected but beautiful and enhanced by the bike activity. Would return to Merritt.
