We spend 4 nights at this charming hotel. It was a wonderful experience, from the check-in and valet parking to the beautiful room (401) overlooking the bay. The room has a wood burning fireplace that helpf to take the chill off the day and lends ambiance to the complementary wine and cheese that is available in the lobby daily from...

We booked because of good reviews from Trip Advisor but this was one of our big mistakes. Our room overlooked the street where loud music totally disturbed any sleep. The hotel does not warn you of this anywhere. It just talks about ocean breezes! There is no way to turn down the heat in the room except by leaving windows...

Hello Robyn, We are very appreciative of your review and are all disappointed that we fell short of providing you with the fond memories so many of our guests speak of. Cannery Row is a very vibrant community and we are sincerely sorry that the information shared did not accurately describe the environment. Guest comfort is certainly a top priority...

We had a king size deluxe corner room. We requested early check in before arrival. We arrived 12 noon and the room was ready on the 2nd floor near the stairs outside and away from the elevator. It was great. The view was awesome of the bay. The wood for the fireplace was directly outside the door by the stairs...

The hotel is in the center of everything, on the water and cozy. Rooms are very comfortable, working fireplace and a good bed. Staff is excellent, always helpful and know the area. Many local restaurants, and the Aquarium is next door. Could us a bit of updating but overall great value.

After a long tiring drive it was a wonderful surprise to be shown to our beautiful cosy, luxurious room. There was a beautiful bed and a fireplace which made the room so cosy. The bathroom boasted both a shower, a bath and amazingly a sauna! It was so nice we literally had to prize ourselves away to go out. The...

Hi RosGrass, Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to welcome you as our guest. It was wonderful to read that you found our Inn to be so comforting and cozy - so much so that you didn't want to leave your room! However, we were delighted that you did experience the renown Monterey Bay Aquarium when you finally did...

We first visited this charming hotel about 25 to 30 years ago and have been returning ever since. Only once did we stray and stay at one of the newer, more posh hotels but the experience there, while quite nice, couldn't compare. We strongly suggest that you get a room facing the bay - in our opinion, it is well...

Located right in the middle of cannery row. Walking distance to the aquarium. Got an ocean view room and it was great. You're literally on the beach, no boardwalk in between. Free breakfast delivered to your room. Wine and cheese reception in the evening. The staff makes the place great also Paul was fantastic. He showed us 3 rooms before...

We took a long weekend away before our baby is due in April. The location was perfect - great views and easy access to restaurants, plus valet parking! We stayed on the fourth floor on the Cannery Row side and I thought it was so noisy the first night but we left one of the windows open on accident, after...

We had a wonderful three night stay here, and even the weather was obliging! Wonderful big room, facing directly over the beach.

The room, with the bay view, was ultra romantic and cozy. you get breakfast in-room if you want. We could have spent all day in the room, honestly. And the 2-day discount aquarium passes were great too. Will definitely be back!
