Pros: Rooms are beautiful. Vanity makeup area to get ready in, and spacious shower. Bed was extremely comfortable, almost the same as my bed from home. Staff had superb customer service skills and went above and beyond to make our stay easier. Rooftop sun deck gives amazing views down the coast from a jacuzzi! Would definitely come back again.
Pros: The staff is amazing and the hotel was very elegant. I was very satisfied with everything I have no complaints. There is nothing I can say bad about this hotel.
Pros: View was AMAZING! Bed and pillows were sooo comfortable! Bathroom was beautiful! Everyone was so friendly and went above and beyond!
Cons: The room came with robes which is a plus, but they were very itchy so I didn't end up using it.
Pros: This place is amazing. Although ostensibly it doesn't look over the top, it is a quietly classy place. Our receptionist, Tiana, helped us throughout our stay and she is the sweetest and most accommodating representative (although everyone we met just went over the top, from the concierge to the bellhops to Ryan the cars concierge). The rooms are huge. They easily fit all of the stuff for our 8 month old with tons of room to spare. His packnplay was no issue at all. Everything is very clean and it was quiet and relaxing. We ordered room service , and it was pricey as expected, but the food was DELICIOUS! I doubt we would have found better food elsewhere - the crab cake Eggs Benny was delicious! We checked out and had our car brought around (valet parking is surprisingly included in the resort fee) and Ryan, our car concierge , told us if sightseeing (we were headed to the aquarium), to feel free to leave the car there, no problem, till 5. That was really nice and we did not have to worry about parking. Overall this is right on the end of cannery row and is apparently about a 10 minute walk from Fisherman's Wharf as well (we didn't have a chance to get down there). You can't beat the location, the customer service, or the amenities here. We would only stay here when coming back. Thank you!!
Pros: Geat ocean view , nice evening music , the staff was helpful , we love the restaurant , we love the valet parking . and the price of the room includes it
Cons: The price of the ocean view rooms is very expensive , and it doesn't include the breakfast
Pros: Beautiful hotel, great location. Comfortable beds.
Cons: Rooms need maintenance. Lock didn't work and needed to be replaced. Phone wasn't working properly.
Cons: The price!
Pros: Very clean & well appointed. Nice live evening music. Convenient peet's coffee on premises. Nice outdoor firepit and beautiful "plaza area" / patio for all to use....very open-air views of the bay.
Cons: Spa facilities did not accomodate the numbers of people using, it very well.
Overall,hotel was a bit over the top for our needs, and I hate always having to figure out tips without feeling like a cheapskate, but I guess that's just part of "high livin".
On the whole ,staff was extremely understanding & accommodating of a few problems that arose and were more than fair in resolving them.
Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa sits right on the bay in the center of town, a 15-minute walk from Fisherman’s Wharf and 2.5 miles (4 km) from Point Pinos Lighthouse. Carmel, Pebble Beach, and 17-Mile Drive are within a 20-minute drive, and golfers can choose from over 20 courses in the county.
Pros: You would think that a place this convenient on Cannery Row would skimp on the amenities but it does not. The rooms are incredibly spacious and lovely. The beds are incredibly comfortable, although the pillows are a tad too soft. The windows open - a rarity now days - letting in the sea breeze. And it's steps away from the Aquarium and plenty of shops / restaurants.
Pros: Location was excellent, Hotel was beautiful. Staff was world class. Will be staying again in the future.
Cons: A bit pricey
Pros: Incredible staff, convenient location
Pros: staff is amazing, the room was perfect and you can't beat the location at one block from the aquarium.
Pros: Lovely location right in the heart of Cannery Row and on the waterfront. This is not an inexpensive hotel but let's face it this is an InterContinental brand not a Motel 6. If you want to splurge this is a good choice however if you don't need a waterfront view and stay in the connected bldg. across the street you can get a room with a fireplace for less. I found this hotel to be relaxing and the staff helpful. Even without a waterfront room they have a large deck area looking out into Monterey Bay where you can sit in front of a fire pit with your friends or by yourself and sip your favorite beverage and enjoy the view and some down time from busy Cannery Row.
Pros: The location
Cons: It was no better than a holiday express, but much more expensive. Beds were miserably uncomfortable.
Pros: Nice rooms, and great restaurant attached to hotel with an extensive wine menu
Pros: Liked how we could purchase 2 day aquarium tickets for the same price. That was very convenient.
Cons: I didn't need a mini bar in he room. But would of liked a microwave and mini fridge.
Pros: The location was great. Right in the middle of Cannary Row.
Cons: The pool was small.
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: I thought booking a hotel right next to the water that I could be hearing waves in the tranquility of the evening. Instead I hear cars and foot traffic because our room is all the way back and faces the garage. This hotel was almost three times the cost of any equivalent hotel if it wasn't next to the waves I didn't get to hear.
Pros: Excellent service
Cons: Noisiest hotel in Monterey
Pros: You can't beat the location- just a block away from the Monterrey Bay Aquarium and right on Cannery Row. Staff was all very nice and the facilities were top notch.
Cons: The restaurant was not pricey and not very good. This is a small complaint, as the view was outstanding and there are plenty of better places to eat within easy walking distance. Would have been nice if wifi was included with room.

Complimentary breakfast in bed.
Spacious and nice bathroom.
You could see sea otters from your balcony.
Pros: The hotel was fantastic. The view from the forth floor spa was outstanding. The hotel is located just off cannery row to be quiet and comfortable, but we'll witching walking distance to all attractions.
Cons: They need a restruant or step up breakfast.
Pros: Location, nice room, great staff
Cons: Mandatory $10 fee for a five year old to get a $2 crummy breakfast -we ended up paying for a breakfast at the Monterey Inn down the street instead.
The place needs a power washing! Gull excrement all over the place and not enough nets to prevent them from hanging out to poop
Pros: Great location I would definitely stay here again!
Pros: I enjoy staying here...hot tube on top floor where you can see Monterey. Comfortable stay and always clean. Definitely staying here again.
Pros: No crowds at the end of Cannery Row, and close enough to walk to any style restaurant or pub, shopping, etc.
Cons: Very slightly disappointed there weren't Bluetooth speakers to plug into for music, however the soothing sounds of the ocean water washing against the rocks below our balcony was much more enjoyable!
Pros: Hotel was a nice location next to the quieter side of Cannery Rd. So we thought the construction across the street ruined the Bay watching during the day, We were gone most of the day.
But other than that everything was wonderful!
Pros: Location and the seals in the background hiding the bowling alley that was in a room above us.
Cons: Bad plumbing. When a bath was taken, the drain took forever and would occasionally burp up some black junk that stunk. Had to rinse the tub out after it drained because of the smell.
Pros: We enjoyed everything about the Monterey Bay Inn. It was right on the water and was close to all the shops on cannery row. The room was beautiful and very clean. We will stay here again in the future.

Pros: My wife and I stayed at the Martine Inn during Monterey Car Week and, in spite of the elevated activity level throughout the Monterey area, Don, his Grandson and the staff took great care of us. The Inn was our welcome ocean front retreat when we needed a break. Breakfasts were very good and the afternoon "tea" was extensive and tasty. All in all, a delightful stay.
Cons: Being car week, the room rates were not a bargain but also not totally unreasonable as all area accommodations go up pretty sharply during that time. Also, the rooms are not air conditioned, which is not prominently mentioned. Though the days were pretty warm (August) the ocean front location assured that things cooled down reasonably during the evenings. Sleeping was not at all uncomfortable.

Pros: All the employees I've met were super nice and helpful. The toliets and bathrooms were extremely clean at all times. The beds are comfy, you get towels for free, they have a very nice hangout area.

Pros: Excellent location two blocks from beach, two blocks from restaurants. This is an old restored Victorian home and they have stuck to the theme throughout. Lots of flowered wallpaper and antique furniture. Beds are comfortable. TV. Nice gardens.
Cons: Some of the staff were not as hospitable as I would expect in an inn.

The room was very clean and comfortable, and very well stocked as well. Complimentary breakfast, chimney in the room, sunny and nice decor. I would come back.
Cons: Unfortunately, wifi didn't work. But they are supposed to be looking at changing providers, hopefully this won't be an issue much longer.

Pros: location can't be beat. the room was big and clean. the showerhead was awesome. free parking was amazing.
Cons: too pricey for what it is, but that's monterey. we were right by the elevator and stairs and it was noisy with all the foot traffic. next time i would request a room away from the elevator and stairs.
Pros: Close to the Aquarium. Free continental breakfast. Nice, clean room with comfy bed.
Cons: Noisy. Every time a nearby guest went into their room it sounded like they were about to step into mine. Access to rooms inconvenient. I'm glad I don't have trouble with stairs.

Pros: This little hotel was clean, neat, stylish, family and pet friendly. The staff was very nice and incredibly accommodating. The restaurant wasn't half bad either. Its a drive to Carmel-by-the Sea, but only steps away from the shops and restaurants that locals actually frequent.
Cons: It's right off of a major road, which is convenient but not as quaint and quiet as the rest of Carmel. Still a great value!
Pros: Great Inn with a nice staff and comfortable facilities. Location is great, we really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was wonderful as well.
Cons: Don't get the breakfast buffet, the food served was the only downside of an otherwise great stay.
Pros: Pretty room with nice balcony, free wifi, & good location.
Cons: Heater was on full blast on arrival, thermostat issues, TV needed to warm up before working properly, very poor customer service, & there was suspicious "stain" on comforter. They did end up giving us a 20% discount off room rate for the thermostat inconvenience at time of checkout.
Pros: Close to a lot of shopping and restaurants.
Cons: Parking difficult later in the evening.
Pros: nice , clean hotel,, no charge to park,, room was easily accessible from car,, quiet and comfortable overall
Cons: not in Carmel proper, had to drive and park, too far to walk to town,

Cons: Facilities not to standard expected for four star rating
Cons: Hotel receptionist at the front lobby. Upon checking in, he literally gave keys and handed it over. Didn't explain anything else, parking, amenities, etc
Pros: My wife and I live on east coast and celebrated our 25th anniversary in California. We stayed at a Hyatt in 3 out of the 4 cities we spent time in. We started with the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco for 4 nights which was fantastic! We then stayed here at the Hyatt Regency in Monterey which was not what we expected. We upgraded to a room facing the golf course. The view decent. The staff were very friendly. The location is good if you're a golfer. Otherwise, I would rather be closer to the beach.
Cons: My primary complaint was the lack of central AC. I don't know if all rooms are setup this way but our room had a portable air conditioner. It does the job to cool the room but it is extremely loud and the compressor kicked on and off all night. If you can sleep in 72 degrees, you won't have a problem. If you are like my wife and I and like it 67-69 degrees, you may want to consider another hotel. It has a huge impact on a good night's sleep which is the main purpose for renting a hotel in the first place.
Pros: Very nice grounds. Facility and staff were very nice.
Cons: Rooms look nice but not very functional. Modern hand shower makes a mess and not easy to use. Indoor free standing A.C. unit is needed but is as loud as a train. Closet door won't stay shut. Ceiling fan wobbles and makes noise. Soda machines were down. Stupid small things that could be easily fixed.
Pros: Beautiful room, beautiful view and very convenient to all of down town
Cons: It seems the nicer the hotel, the less accommodations.
No free coffee or breakfast, business center computers needed to have browsers updated, too many kids in the spa
Cons: There was very little water pressure from the shower. Also the heater thermostat did not work. We set it at 80 we were freezing and went to bed, when we woke up the heater never kicked on but the ceiling fan did? So weird
Pros: I liked the outdoor area. There is a large pool, hot tub, games, and communal fire pit that was a lot of fun.
Cons: I really dislike the bed covers. You are either way too hot or freezing. What happened to old-fashioned blankets?
Pros: Loved that they had live music. Restaurant had good service for breakfast and dinner. Food was good as well.
Cons: Did not like carpet in bedrooms. Bathrooms a bit small
Pros: Everyone from the front desk staff, the servers and bartenders, and the housekeepers did an amazing job. I work in the service industry in a casino/resort, and yet I experienced better service and a better experience with the staff at the Hyatt than where I work. A+++.
Cons: The only things I didn't like had nothing to do with the hotel and its staff. It isn't located downtown, so it is a very short trek to the festivities in town. Also, it sounded like a large man was doing burpees in the room above us.
Pros: We enjoyed the recently updated rooms including the very nice bathroom with vanity and open shower. We enjoyed very tasty room service meals (dinner and breakfast). We also used the pool which was pleasantly warm.
Cons: The toilet was a bit of a tight fit with walls on either side. The air conditioner was a standing machine which had an exhaust that was separated form the back and until we reattached it poured hot exhaust over the air-conditioning.
Pros: Super nice staff. The $22 resort fee includes parking and internet. A little farther from the wharf/tourists spots.

Pros: Comfortable bed, clean room, slate tile in bathroom, refrigerator that wasn't noisy in the middle of the night!
Pros: Stone tiled shower. Large back patio shaded with tree. Location near ocean walking paths and town..
Cons: Terrible breakfast- just commercial muffins cut in half.
Pros: We stayed in the delux queen cottage and it was perfect! Newly remodeled, spacious, private and quiet with a kitchenette. The cottages don't share walls and have lovely views of landscaping and trees. Wish we would have stayed longer, we will be back.
Pros: Beautiful décor is the icing on the cake for this newly remodeled hotel. Tiled bathrooms and pillow top mattresses combined with spacious closets and effective kitchenettes created a down-home luxurious feeling. Easily accessible from the parking lot, the room's manually locked doors allowed you to enter your home-away from home. In addition to all the typical amenities of vending and Wi-Fi, the beautifully tailored grounds were punctuated by a pool, Jacuzzi and fire pit. This affordable hotel had a feeling of opulence that doesn't break the bank.
Cons: That I had to leave!
Pros: the room is very beautiful and comfort. The front desk is very helpful. My families love this place very much!

Nice breakfast area with sufficient variety of food, coffee, tea, orang juice, milk, fresh fruit, cereals (hot n cold), variety of breads to toast, make it yourself waffles, and boiled eggs. Just a short walk to the beach.
Cons: Mildew in the shower, peeling wallpaper in the bathroom, dirty remote control, filthy doors, bugs (e.g. tick) in the room.
Pros: The Rosedale Inn is understated when looking at it from the outside but the interior is all very modern and high quality. The rooms look as if they've just been upgraded because the bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub and all contemporary features. The setting is also great--wonderful wooded area.
At Rosedale Inn, you'll be within a 10-minute drive of Monterey Bay Aquarium and Point Pinos Lighthouse. Free perks include WiFi, self parking, and continental breakfast available daily. Rooms offer upscale touches like fireplaces and jetted tubs, along with kitchenettes and LCD TVs.
Pros: I was in Monterey to run in Laguna Seca and the hotel is perfectly located, just 15 minutes from the track. Upon check-in, the staff was kind enough to give me directions to everything.
The room itself was clean and comfortable, which is all I really ask for.
Cons: I had to leave one morning before 7 AM and I couldn't have breakfast. Starting a bit earlier would help some. The one day I did have breakfast, the eggs didn't look appetizing so I chose something else.

Pros: The room was spacious, clean, and recently renovated. Everything was well-kept and in good condition, we thought it was delightful. Excellent value for the price.
Cons: The pool is an oversized bathtub and breakfast was minimal.
Pros: Good value for basic accommodations..
Cons: I did not realize that i.t was in the flight path of the airport
Pros: Clean & newly renovated
Cons: Breakfast could be better. If you are a carb loader, fine. Add choices of eggs or sausages pls for a more a complete breakfast experience. Add a few choices of fruits as well. Am I asking too much?
Pros: Room was OK.
Location was OK
Cons: No soap or shampoo in the room when I went to get in the shower the first evening. It was in the room the second day.
The motel charged my credit card on Thursday, PRIOR to arrival on Friday. When I checked in, I was charged for both Friday and Saturday (we stayed two nights) so I was charged for three nights instead of two. On Saturday morning when I discovered what had happened, I called the hotel to asked why. Instead of an apology for an error, I was told that this was their standard business practice and the double charged night should be credited back to my account in 3 to 5 days depending on my bank.
This is not a practice that I have run into before but think that in a place like Monterey where the vast majority of guests are tourists, this is a good way to increase profits. You collect the extra nights fees and collect the interest on the money until you have to give it back.
Pros: Very friendly staff really clean and comfortable
Pros: I love the location. The room was very small but clean.
I would stay there again.
Cons: The room size
Pros: We we're in a freshly remodeled room. It was nice and clean, and it had a continental breakfast.
Cons: The staff was kind of badand the remodel was poorly done.
Pros: Everything.. We stay thr a lot and each time is good experience.
Cons: The only thing I can think of is to have fresh fruit for breakfast.
Pros: Good price. Nice breakfast. Polite and helpful staff
Cons: Noisy between rooms
Pros: 6 pillows on the large, comfy king-sized bed...plus, the refrigerator, microwave, iron...appliances that provided added comforts of home!
Pros: Great value for the money, nice staff
Pros: The staff was competent, friendly, and helpful. The room was nothing special, but it did have a fridge. The wireless Internet worked well. There is a quaint Italian restaurant just across the street. All in all, this was a good hotel for a very reasonable price.
Cons: We stayed over a weekend, and on Saturday night there was loud, bass-heavy techno music coming from a club nearby. We could hear/feel the bass even with the door and window shut. This probably isn't an issue during the week, and it may not be an issue every weekend, but if you're sensitive to this sort of thing (admittedly, I am), you might want to check for further options in Monterey. This was only a minor annoyance, however; the hotel is still a solid deal for the price.

Pros: staff was super friendly and the bed comfortable. location is close to the main street. breakfast in the room was nice (but only to the fact that there was no lounge or lobby, more pragmatic than anything else).
Cons: Walls paper thin, breakfast itself was nothing really, noise in the streets, bed quite small for a queen sized, curtains didn't close entirely, bathroom super small! Way too expensive for what you get. Pool was drained and looked horrible.
Pros: Our only complaint is that the noise of the village and the parking lot found its way into our room.
Pros: Perfect location in the heart Carmel. Center of all shops and restaurants. Slight ocean view in our room and could hear the waved when it was quiet at night. Great service, free breakfast delivered to your room, tremendously clean, cozy and comfortable.
Cons: The structure is outdated and the bathrooms feel very outdated, but you'll never really notice or care due to the 5 star cleanliness, service, location and value. Breakfast could be better, but right next to plenty of great places to eat that you can walk to.
Pros: Great location and very clean.
Cons: Very noisy, walls are very thin. Street noise is very loud. Did not sleep well during my stay.
Pros: The rooms were very clean and quaint. Balcony was a nice amenity. Wasn't very expensive at all and was perfect for a golf trip on a budget or just to have a centralized location to enjoy the town and beach--which was within walking distance.
Cons: Room could have had a little more space in it and a refrigerator and/or fireplace (like some of the others have) would have been nice but no complaints.
Pros: Location, staff, free parking, comfortable and clean.
Cons: Decor a bit dated but attractive.
Cons: Old and musty smell
Pros: Location, comfortable bed, nice shower
Cons: No AC, internet slow and frequently drops out, old TV
Pros: Room was clean and staff was friendly.
Cons: Breakfast- said continental breakfast but it was more like a morning snack. Don't say breakfast included if it is not breakfast.
Bathroom sink is just that a sink, no counter space for toiletries. Made it difficult to brush teeth, put on make-up, etc.
Pros: Perfect location to walk to shops, restaurants, and the beach. Great restaurants. We loved the nice touch of delivery to our room for the mornings coffee or tea with croissants and fresh fruit and juice.
Rooms were older, not updated. However, the bedding was a pure delight.

Freebies like breakfast, WiFi, and self parking are added perks, and guests looking to stay active can check out the nearby hiking/biking trails, kayaking, and mountain biking. Nice touches like designer toiletries and pillowtop beds with premium linens are offered up in all rooms.
Pros: The rooms were nice and big and decently stocked. The location was super close to the historic old town and a short uber to cannery row.
Pros: Clerk made our check in pleasant
Cons: No A/C - Heater
Pros: Fantastic room for the money. It was a quick walk to restaurants and the pier. I would definitely stay here again.
Pros: Location was great. Within walking distance of "downtown" Monterey. Made it easy for me to walk to grab a bite to eat. Ample parking. Room was spacious. Free WiFi was a nice touch.
Cons: The building and decor were both so dated. The building screams 70s, and the decor was pretty much bad. The rooms were also pretty dark, and the window screens weren't secure, so I couldn't open the window to get fresh air without worrying about letting moths in. The lighting was a weird contrast between incandescent and green LED lights. While I applaud the use of greener light sources, the contrast was harsh on the eyes.
My biggest complaint, however, was the visible debris on the bathroom vent/fan. There were thick deposits of grey lint (maybe mold) on the fan. As someone with allergies, it just kind of pissed me off. There were also cobwebs on the bathroom light, which could easily have been sealed off with a cover. WiFi reception was spotty at best.
Pros: location not far from the beach,
comfortable and almost spacious,
vending machine outside on the hallway,
overall clean and comfortable
Pros: Refegerator, breakfast, staff
Pros: No hassles and friendly staff. Comfortable and clean rooms. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.
Located 4.4 mi (7.1 km) from the airport, Colton Inn offers a great location, putting you within a 15-minute walk of Fisherman's Wharf and Maritime Museum. Guests can enjoy the sauna, and hiking/biking trails and scuba diving are nearby. Bonuses like refrigerators and microwaves are offered in all rooms, along with DVD players and free WiFi.
Pros: Quick check in, available parking, comfortable bed and complimentary breakfast.
Pros: Good amount of parking and a clean room with inside (hallway) access. Our larger room with a single queen, couch and desk was a good choice and came with a microwave, small fridge and safe. Don't expect views or character here, just a good hotel room with a comfy bed and room to rest/recline after a long day.
Cons: Rooms are not very well insulated, so noisy neighbors are easily heard. This is OK most of the time until their are screaming children or reveling partiers.
Cons: Can hear next room neighbors
Pros: The staff was so awesome. Every little thing we needed, they seemed actually happy to supply. It was clean. Breakfast was good. The pool and hot tub are small but totally adequate. We will definitely be back!
Cons: It isn't down at Cannery Row but once you know where you're going it only takes 10 minutes to get to and from.
Pros: Easy access and parking. Breakfast was nice but not great. Clean and fine for families.
Cons: Pool was cold. Noise from road.
Pros: Very friendly environment for sure! Great staff ! And Great service have nothing bad to say and next time I go to monterey I will book here again no problem
Pros: This hotel is in keeping with Best Westerns standard for clean, well kept facilities with accommodating staff.
Cons: The only complaint I have is we could hear the conversations in the adjoining room as if there was no door.
