I have stayed here years ago and the remodel is excellent. Our room was very comfortable and the balcony was very nice. My suggestion would be to upgrade the bed linens.
Make sure you ask for the "front ocean view"..There is a big difference between ocean view and front view..

Room Tip: Front ocean view!

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. What an excellent hotel. These guy sent out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The location is great and accessible, the rooms are great and have awesome views, and the staff is never anything but pleasant. We plan on coming back and staying here in the future.

Monterey Bay Inn has it all to satisfy those of us who want privacy, serenity, creature comforts and close proximity to the ocean when we visit Monterey, CA. It is situated at the entrance to the famed Cannery Row with almost all its rooms boasting an unobstructed or partial ocean view. The staff are courteous and friendly. The decor is pleasing and complemented in all the minute details. Rooms are clean and beautifully maintained. The complimentary breakfast comprising of yogurt, pastries, fresh fruit, boiled egg and beverage is more than adequate. For a change of pace there are several breakfast spots nearby that the staff will recommend upon asking.

Room Tip: This time we stayed in a room that had a view of the San Carlos Beach and absolutely loved it. The s...

This is a lovely hotel right on the water within walking distance of Cannery Row. We had a wonderful ocean front room with a balcony. Huge bathroom with 2 sinks, king bed, and a couch. One of the nicest rooms we have ever had and very reasonably priced. They bring a complimentary breakfast to your room. You fill out a little order form the night before and specify a time. We had juice, delicious fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs. croissants, and a
large pot of hot coffee which we enjoyed on the balcony while watching the sea otters and boats go by!
Would definitely stay here again.

We are very appreciative of you taking the time to review your stay with us. Our bathrooms are certainly a favorite among our guests and we were happy to hear that you would rate it as one of the best bathrooms ever. We were very pleased that our complimentary breakfast delivery allowed you to enjoy breakfast on the balcony, where you were able to spot sea otters. They are such a treat to see. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Warmest Regards,

Stayed with family enroute from San Francisco to Sequoia NP via Big Sur coast. Stayed 2 nights in mid april. Hotel was in a good location - end of cannery row, ~15 min walk to aquarium. Fisherman's wharf a short drive in the other direction. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Room was exceptionally clean. Not a bad view from any room. We were in the lowest floor closest to the street (not facing the ocean) and still had a great view - see attached photo. Kids loved the beach and rocks adjacent to the hotel as well as the onsite jacuzzi. Breakfast was decent (yogurt, muffins fruit, hardboiled eggs etc.). Definitely would return if we ever travel back to California.

Room Tip: we were as close to the street on the lowest floor and had no issues at all - not a bad room to be h...

We stayed at Monterey Bay Inn on our fantastic road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The arrival to the hotel could have been better, the hotel doesn't have a real entrance or a lobby, just a small room with the reception desk. There is no restaurant either. However, there were a lot of good sides: great location in the middle of Monterey, yet calm and quiet, nice breakfast served to the room, balcony with a great view to the Bay, comfortable bed, spacious room with a huge bathroom and two jacuzzis. A little outdated, but clean and comfortable in the room. Warm recommendation for a morning jog along the coast line, the breakfast served to the room and enjoyed at the balcony will taste great after that!
