We stayed here one night as we were traveling on the pacific coast highway on a road trip. This was our favorite hotel we stayed at on our 4 day trip. Super clean, very comfortable and has a friendly helpful staff. Great value for the price: no breakfast but they did have coffee/tea and even a computer with a printer... More

We've stayed in a lot of places travelling around California and this has been one of the best. We stayed here to go whale watching and visit the aquarium. Really clean rooms, quiet location and we felt totally safe. Places to eat nearby and wifi was good.

A nice little motel, we booked this one last minute and wasn't disappointed. As motels go, this was pleasant and clean, the reception staff were welcoming and helpful. It did say in the room that, ear plugs were available from reception, but we didn't need them during our stay. In fact, we had a great nights sleep. Within easy walking... More

Simple but very clean. Comfortable enough for a couple of nights. The air conditioning was a bit loud and it was hard to sleep like that. I also thought and it was pretty hot inside the room despite having the air con on most of the night.

Spent three nights and found it the ideal place to stay. Handy for sight-seeing, Highway 1 access nearby, the staff were very friendly and helpful, all in all we would recommend the Inn by the Bay. Also very clean and felt secure.

Spent 4 nights at this hotel in Monterey on our California road trip. Check in was easy and friendly and the room on the second floor was comfortable and had everything we needed. Car park is a good size and safe. Location is perfect for walking into the town centre and around the sights, Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row and the... More

Cute little motel, very clean rooms, which included coffee maker with coffee and condiments, a microwave, and mini fridge. The walls are a tad thin, could hear the neighbors TV and the kids playing. Directly across the street is a Frisbee golf course with a nice walking path. The area seemed nice and quiet.

Old 70's style motor lodge was clean and basically updated. Bathroom (shower and toilet room) could use an update, but clean. Carpets were clean and the little refrig a plus. Coffee maker was a bit odd -coffee came prepackaged with a thin plastic tray, which partially melted when the hot water dripped through,) but better than nothing. WiFi worked quite... More

Stayed for a one night stop on our way from San Francisco to LA. Reception was nice and friendly, room was large and well equipped (coffee machine, mini fridge, microwave) but no safe. Huge comfy bed. Bathroom was a little small and had very low stream pressure but other than that - we had a really nice stay :)
