Due to inferior accomodations in another hotel in Monterey , California,we had to find another place to stay. It was a fortunate turn of events. We stayed at Monterey Bay Inn and were so pleased with our room, the terrace overlooking the bay and the wonderful staff. They gave us a huge discount which we really appreciated. The room was luxerious and the beds were very confortble. The jacuzzi on the roof was great and the view spectacular!

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night. We chose this hotel because it looked the nicest out of all reasonably priced hotels. This hotel was awesome! I couldn't believe that we almost stayed at a Best Western for the same price. We were greeted by very friendly and helpful front desk staff. The room was really nice and roomy. The bed was very plush and SO comfortable. The bathroom was big with a large tub, really nice countertops and a seperate closet for the toilet. We had a park view, which to me was definately the best value. Since my husband and I already live in Monterey, we didn't need a full ocean view, which was much more expensive. The park view and the Cannery Row view were the same price, and the Cannery Row view is code for view of an ugly gray building and the street. But the park view was very beautiful - half of our view was the ocean and harbor, and the other half was of a really cute and green park. Our favorite thing about this hotel is the FREE room service breakfast. We ordered pretty much everything - yogurt, fresh fruit, a bagel, a muffin, orange juice and a pitcher of coffee. We took it out on the balcony and ate it. Our other favorite thing about this hotel is the roof-top hot tub. It was such a beautiful view! The only drawbacks to this hotel are - there is a minimal fee for parking (no big deal) and the hot tubs (there are 2) were kind of crowded. If you don't want to share a hot tub, try to go in the morning or afternoon. Other than that, this hotel was amazing! We have already reccommended it to some people and whenever we have some extra cash, we will definately go back.

Checked in a Sunday and spent 3 of the most wonderful day's with my wife. We paid a bit more than some other choices off the Cannery Row, but the decision turned out to be a winner. Gracious check in by Bethany who made us feel welcome. What can I say about room 320......Unbelievable view of both San Carlos beach and the bay, they even had a pair of binoculars in the room for us to use. One thing we liked the best was that the rate included breakfast which is delivered to the room instead of having to get dressed and go down to a community area for continental breakfast. We will definitely stay at the Monterey Bay Inn again.

Beautifully appointed rooms. Excellent selection of amenities in each room.
Enjoyed the relaxing CD's. Wonderful location for peace and tranquility, plus convenient location to everything in the area. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Will definitely return.

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.

Stayed in a really nice room on the top floor with a balcony overlooking the bay and the park. The view from the balcony was beautiful. The room was very comfortable and the bathrooom is gorgeous.

The hotel is a short walk away from the Cannery Rown shops and restaurants. It's a short distance (by car) to 17-Mile Drive/Pebble Beach - that was amazing.

The only detraction was the parking. The parking garage is under the hotel, which is good because the weather does not matter, but the parking is very tight and it is tough to maneuver a larger vehicle in and out of some of the parking spaces.

I was only there one night and wish I had more time for my stay. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
