When we first drove up to the hotel parking was a breeze (what was nice is that they have in and out privileges without having to tip someone for valet.). The staff greeted us with a friendly attitude and a smile...making us feel very welcomed.

Once we walked into our room which was on the third floor, amazing is all the I could think of. The amenities were great and that wasn't the best part...the view was captivating (even more so on the 4th floor they have a panoramic view of the Monterey Bay with a hot tub...very nice!). I really enjoyed having the continental breakfast served in our room. Oh and by the way...the bed was soooo comfortable I felt like I was sleeping at home.

Wonderful and helpful staff. The feather bed is heaven. Delicious continental breakfast delivered to your door. Fresh baked cookies in the lobby in the afternoons was a special treat.

My wife and I stayed at this beautiful hotel for one night and were very pleased. We had booked a Bayview suite but to our surprise we had been upgraded to one of their Panoramic rooms. From our bed we could sit and watch the sea otters, birds, and sail boats. It was truly an amazing experience! The bathroom was another very nice feature; it had a wonderful Jacuzzi tub and clear glass shower. The room was very clean and appeared recently remodeled. This hotel is located at the very beginning of Cannery Row but it is a nice stroll to all the restaurants and shops. It is also a very easy walk to Fishermans Wharf. My only complaint is that they charge $13 dollars for parking; it seems like that should be included in the cost of the room. With that said, I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

We stayed here for a week, the room we had was the best in the house 220, the views are superb, and the room is large and very comfortable. The sealife is very visable. Value for money NO. We paid $500 to $600 a night and the service was equivalent to a 3* if you're lucky! Prior to this we have stayed in Monterey Bay before, using the Monterey Plaza and the Marriott, both offer good value for money and reflect in the service the price you are paying for the seafront location, unless you get the hotel at a rock down bargin price, my suggestion, try the other, much better.

I don't even know where to start. Everything about this hotel was five stars--the staff, the view, the accommodations! Beautiful balcony--waters of the bay directily underneath. Spa-type bathroom with two sinks, lush accessories. Most comfortable feather bed with million-dollar sheets. (I wish I could have spirited it out to the car to take home!) Delicious continental breakfast delivered to the room when requested. Binoculars provided for bay-watching. CD player with "ocean sounds" CD's. This was our first visit to Monterey and we lucked out choosing this small, cozy, and quiet hotel--I would never stay anywhere else in Monerey again, and neither should you!

My husband and I stayed at Monterey Bay Inn for two nights and were sad to leave! We requested an ocean view room and were upgraded (for free) to a corner ocean view room! The view was amazing; we could see sea lions and otters swimming in the bay below from our window. The exterior is nothing to write home about, but the room was very nice and clean (granite countertops, corner fireplace, soft bed, etc.). The staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast delivered to our room was a nice touch (and yummy). We hope to stay at Monterey Bay Inn again in the future!
