Monterey Tides

Hotel in Monterey

Offering direct beach access and a year-round outdoor heated pool, Monterey Tides, is 3 mi from Monterey Bay Aquarium. Old Fisherman's Wharf is 10 minutes' drive away. The ocean views from both my room, and lobby were my favorite. The fact that you could literally step outside and onto the beach was everything. Its 5 steps into the backyard and boom! The food was amazing, I bet if the restaurant was open it would be better because you'd get to enjoy the ambiance and be sheltered from the elements of outside. I just took mine to my room and ate looking at the water. It was truly magical.

FAQs about hotels in Monterey

A Wild Coastline and Even Wilder Sealife

Known for beautifully undulating coastline attracting a wealth of wildlife, laid-back Monterey is on a small peninsula. Though now more famous for Monterey Jack cheese, it was once an important sardine fishing town. Some former canning factories now house galleries and shops on a street renamed Cannery Row after a novel by John Steinbeck. A museum and his former home in nearby Salinas can be visited.

The fantastic Monterey Bay Aquarium houses a fascinating range of local sealife, which is so prevalent here that you can often see seals basking on craggy beaches, or sea lions roaring away under piers in Fisherman’s Wharf. Whalewatching tours also depart from here.

South is the Monterey State Historic Park, site of historic buildings including Custom House and the Old Whaling Station with a path made from whalebone. To the east are a couple of Monterey hotels on the beach on Booking.com, and there are also several Monterey hotels with indoor pools.

Right by Monterey Peninsula Airport is one of the city’s 7 golf courses, and there are 3 golf courses near the Laguna Seca Raceway.

Whether you’re here for the Monterey Jazz Festival, or for driving the Big Sur Pacific coast road to the south, if you’re staying with kids, don’t forget to check out the Dennis the Menace Park.
