We recently stayed at the MBI for the final part of our Honeymoon in California. We booked through Hotwire and I contacted the hotel ahead of time to check up on our room etc. They were absolutely fantastic in getting back to me and offered us an upgrade which was very kind and most welcome.
The hotel is at the southern end of Cannery Row (away from the biggest crowds) next to a park and around 10 mins walk from Fishermans Wharf in a great location. The hotel sticks out into the water with rooms along one side with stunning views of the bay and marina.
We loved the room, certainly a good size and well equipped. Breakfast included in the rate was a real bonus, delivered fresh and on time every day. People who have complained about it must seriously eat lots for breakfast as with coffee, tea, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, juice and boiled eggs on offer we were stuffed every day!
I would recommend ensuring that you book an Ocean View room as the Cannery Row rooms didn't look anywhere near as nice and defeat the point of staying next to the sea when you look out onto the road. Parking is extra, but with it being so busy in Monterey its actually just piece of mind to have somewhere close, easy and reliable to park.
We had a great stay at MBI and will be back again if we venture to Monterey, just splash out and make sure you get a room overlooking the water!
