Amazing view!”

Loved this hotel! The best view of Monterey; beautiful ocean view right on the water. Listened to crashing waves, gulls and seals all evening long and slept like babies! Lovely good sized room with a huge bathroom. Awesome balcony to enjoy the view as well. Everything was fabulous, including the complimentary continental breakfast that was delivered to our room each morning. What a treat! The food was fantastic; you can tell the pastry was fresh baked. Seriously couldn’t believe how nice it all was. Have already recommended the hotel to family and will continue to recommend to anyone looking to stay in Monterey.

Value is great.”

The value for the location is fantastic. The extra touches with the brunch being delivered to your room was convenient and very nice. The balcony for the ocean view was superb to be able to hear the ocean for the price of less than it cost to stay at many other hotels. The parking I think could have been lowered and price a little. The staff rubbed us the wrong way a bit though, due to confusion with detailz with 3rd party online reservations (Agoda via Priceline), so perhaps would have been best to book directly with hotel, as online it looked as though I paid the parking and when we got there they said no the parking has to be paid there. The jacuzzi should be bigger and maybe a little more elegant then the hotel would be pretty nice. All in all, I better value due to the balcony of some of the other hotels and worth the price and would definitely stay again.

Hi Jason, Thank you for the review and comments. We apologize for the issues you may have experienced during your stay. Our parking fee goes directly toward our efforts to create a secure environment for our guests; this includes a night security guard, security cameras, and other features that help to keep the parking lot safe and exclusive to our guests. For our room types, an Ocean Harbor view has views of the Monterey Bay, San Carlos Beach, the Coast Guard Pier, Monterey’s boat harbor and a partial view of the ocean. An Oceanfront view has premium ocean views of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. We strive to provide each of our guests with positive experience and regret that was not your case. We truly hope we have an opportunity to welcome you back, so we may demonstrate our commitment to providing you with a more positive stay, Sincerely, Inns of Monterey Management

Terrible hotel”

I was charged twice, still haven’t reconciled. Hotel was nothing like what was advertised. Pictures are deceiving. The place was filthy. We ordered champagne and strawberries upgrade and the glasses looked like they were in a dusty closet the past 20 years. Hotel staff was rude and unhelpful. Worst of all, hotel was under construction and should there have been a fire and the elevator was out, we had NO access to the stairway, which is against safety codes. The place was so gross that we left early. They did not refund money, which I can’t say much about but on top of that, I was double charged for the stay. While we were there, another couple came up to the room next to us, took one look, and left. Wish I didn’t book ahead and would have had that option. If you stay here, you will be VERY disappointed.
