Comfortable room with well appointed amenities. Close to walking paths and easy walking distance to Monterey aquarium. Two comfortable chairs to sit at while enjoying the continental breakfast that's delivered to your room. Nice balcony with chairs to enjoy the view of the bay.

Our stay started with excellent service at check-in by Christy, she was knowledgeable and very helpful. We were celebrating our anniversary and a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates were sent to our room with a card signed by all, nice touch. We stayed in the Harbor View Room, what a beautiful view. We never shut the door to our...

Sadly we only stayed one night but this is a truly lovely hotel. We booked the city view room and it was well worth the little extra we payed. The room was very spacious , with king size bed, large tv and sofa. Bathrobes and toiletries provided. The best part was the view we had a small balcony with views...

This past weekend I revisited the Monterey Bay Inn as I remembered feeling pampered there a few years ago. I was not disappointed! From the complimentary breakfast served in my room, to the luxurious bathroom, comfortable bed and views from my balcony, I felt restored and well taken care of after a busy weekend.

So many thing we loved about this hotel. We look for places that do not allow pets and are clean. The owner has really kept this motel in good condition. The flowers were beautiful even in the winter. They had real coffee cups instead of Styrofoam. The location was great also. The beach and walking path was directly across the...

I loved the view from the room! Water, seals and divers not to mention the waves crashing so tranquil! We were greeted when we first entered the lobby and given information about the area, they even helped us decide on dinner!
