We had a combined leisure/business trip to Monterey, and the Monterey Bay Inn met all our needs. From very nice and comfortable rooms, to watching sea otters cavort in the water below, to having glaucous gulls perch on the deck railing, we very much enjoyed our stay.
We enjoy dining out, so the absence of an on-site restaurant was not a concern for us. The in-suite continental breakfasts were quite healthy and good.
Since the Inn is located mid-way between the Alvarado downtown area and the aquarium, we did not use our car for four days. While there are two hot tubs, there is no pool, so this may not be the best location for families with active children.
