Just returned from a 2 night stay and I found the Marriott to be even better than I remembered from previous visits. What impressed me most was the warmth and friendly staff members from the front desk to the valet parking to the restaurant staff at breakfast. We were consistently greeted with a smile and a willingness to help with every encounter.
The location is good for the wharf and Cannery Row as well as downtown Monterey. Plenty of restaurants and other services within walking distance. Rooms are standard Marriott , clean and comfortable. Ours had a great view of the harbor and the bay beyond.
I had an incident where my cellphone became lodged in a fixture and maintenance showed up almost immediately to fix the problem.
The hotel comped our breakfast both mornings and the buffet was very good. The sports bar off the main lobby was a nice place to finish off the night.
Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return again.

The customer service at this hotel is wonderful. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with smiles our entire visit. The rooms were clean and the hotel quiet.

This hotel offers a full restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We took advantage of the breakfast booked with room special. We couldn't have been happier. We were allowed the breakfast buffet or the ability to order off the menu. It was very simple and a great way to start your day.

The hotel is located a short walk from Fishermans Warf. Parking a vehicle in Monterey, California can prove to be an expensive experience. The hotel offers valet parking for $20 a day/night. Considering the other options around Monterey, this seemed to be the most econimical means to park our rental vehicle. Valet staff was friendly and attentive.

If you do stay at this hotel, I would recommend a high floor bay view room. Well worth the upgrade!

Friendly Staff.. Thank you!

This facility was clean, spacious, and (most of all) in a great location to walk everywhere - but you would have thought something would have been included in the $$$ price! Internet was $12.95 extra. Parking was $20/day extra. Breakfast was extra. You name it and it was extra!

Hotel needs a renovation, rooms are clean and well maintained but look old. Staff nice and helpful.Wi-fi costs 12.95 per 24h

Parking is Valet only for 20$/day (or park 3 blocks away for 7$/visit).

The only reason to stay there is if you are attending a conference in the Monterey conference center.

My husband, two kids and I stayed for a Saturday night at the Monterey Marriott. I went through priceline, but didn't end up getting a deal at all--ending up paying the full price I would have paid if I reserved straight through the hotel. Initially I was disappointed finding out it was this hotel we reserved, but figured we'd make the best of it for one night.

The hotel is semi-dated and feels relatively dark on the inside. The hotel room was clean with a good amount of space for all of us (our kids are both under 2). The bed was great to sleep on and sheets felt like a high enough quality to make them soft. We didn't have a great view or anything really special worth writing about in regards to the room, but it worked for us for 1 night. I did use the pool with my older son and it was a decent temperature (tepid...not cool not warm). It was hard to regulate the temperature to keep it constant throughout the night...it would get either warmer than it should or cooler than it should. N

Positives: Very friendly staff and comfortable bed

Negatives: Average feeling hotel, no refrigerator in our room, no great view, close to the aquarium but not walking distance

If you are able to pay under 200 for this room, this hotel may meet your expectations...pay anything much over and you may be kicking yourself for spending so much when you could have paid an extra 100 or so per night to stay a few hundred feet from the aquarium or right on Cannery Row ;)

Pluses
- well located in historic downtown Monterey, five minutes from Fishermans Wharf, beach, shopping, ten minutes from Cannery Row and Aquarium
- service unusually good for even a Marriott, from valet to check in desk to concierge
- great ocean views for many rooms
- good sized health club with outdoor pool

No significant minuses...we would stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for high floor bay view
