“Great place!”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

The Monterey Bay Inn was wonderful! Very clean. We were also upgraded to a room with a view of the bay -- absolutely gorgeous! Also, great location to the "downtown" area and to the trail around town. I would definitely go back next time I'm in the area!

Room on ocean was nice, wifi not working some parts of hotel and sea life is quite noisy even at night. Lovely area though. Will return to Monterey but try somewhere different for that price. Breakfast is continental and not exactly what we ordered the night before. Staff was friendly and accommodating but I think they know the wifi doesn't work in parts of the building despite their attempts to fix.

This hotel was in a beautiful location. The staff could not have been more helpful, especially Stacy and Wendy. It was within walking distance of everything on Cannery Row but was away from the crowds. Breakfast was brought to your room every morning as part of your stay. A wonderful stay. We had an ocean room and the view was wonderful as well. Very pleased.

Check in went smoothly, we were a little early but they gave us a call to tell us room was ready. Which was O.K buy us because we were ready to check out the town. This hotel is close to everything. Room was pleasant, views from balcony truly lovely. We wish we could have stayed longer but only had one day, hope to return.

Room Tip: Please get a bay view room with balcony and listen to the wildlife.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I’m glad we were able to get you into a room early so that you could drop off your luggage and go exploring! We are going through a lot of very exciting improvements – including new 47” televisions, new mattress sets and bedding, and upgrades to our wifi – and we hope we get a chance to welcome you back soon!

Thank you,
the General Manager

A lovely simple Inn at the waterside.

Service was efficient, friendly, accomodating and check in was super smooth. There is nothing to fault of this place only to praise- especially with its fabulous location and setting close to all the sights of the area and balcony door rooms with all mod cons. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

The personnel was very friendly and helpful. Our room was not an the seaside but it was otherwise very good. The bathroom was excellent. Breakfast was served to the room as the hotel did not have a restaurant. There were good restaurants in the neighborhood and the front disk lady reserved a near by restaurant for us. The hotel also had good parking facilities for a modest fee.

Stayed three nights with an oceanview and it was just what we wanted. Room was very spacious with a huge bathroom. Lots of little very special touches; even binoculars to see the sea otters outside your room on the bay! Loved having breakfast in our hotel robes on our balcony each morning. Close to Cannery Row to see the sights and have dinner making this such a convenient location as well. Staff were exceptionally helpful and Derrick at reception was fantastic. For a September stay we also found this to be great value. With so much choice along the coast, we were thrilled with our choice to stay in Monterey and really glad we chose the Monterey Bay Inn.

Room Tip: Oceanview with a balcony looking out to the Bay and pier.
