Our California coastal hotel boasts only the best of the laidback west coast lifestyle - including well appointed rooms - fine dining and the beach just steps away.
Monterey Beach is right in the backyard of this full service hotel. Beach access and an ocean view are two of the top reasons guests flock to our hotel. Enjoy the fresh sea air and sounds of the crashing waves. Whether you re interested in surf lessons or romantic strolls along the sand - the best of California is right here.
Area attractions and area special events keep guests busy. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is a must for family-friendly fun. Local golf courses and tournaments are a perfect reprise and provide a full day of relaxation. Of course - Cannery Row and Fishermans Wharf are also big attractions and feature plenty of shopping and fine dining options.
No free breakfast
Most rooms have 2 comfortable queen beds. Hard to find. Made a reunion of old friends very comfortable. In room Starbucks coffee was quite good. Far better coffee than at most hotels for those of us who need a good cup as soon as we awake.
Selection of snacks was limited to small vending machine size without many healthy selections. Would like to see healthy and larger sized chips, etc sold in larger sized bags on premise.
The hotel is clean. The hotel is the only hotel right off the state beach in that area (which is a short drive outside the downtown area of Monterey). It was nice to be able to walk from my room onto a beach.
It is way over priced. In addition to the already expensive room price $$$, we were charged an additional mandatory "Resort Fee" of $25/night for the pool, gym, and Internet. In other hotels I've stayed at these are included in the price, not an additional fee. Also, the staff (specifically the front desk staff) were not as nice as you would expect of a "Resort". When we checked in the staff didn't welcome us or anything. She just wanted our reservation & credit card. When we asked questions, she seemed annoyed like we were holding her up from more important things. I felt more like cattle than a guest. Overall, for the price I paid I could of gotten a room in Monterey Bay, close to a Beach in Monterey which in my option has a better view of the water.
The location was great, Staff was helpful . Love the views,
