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.

    I love the ocean.

    I love the ocean. There are just so many great little beaches to visit. Monterey has so much Sea life too. We saw harbor seals, otters, elephant seals, too late for the Monarch Butterflys, tons of birds, just from the walking paths! We actually walked from Monterey to Pacific Grove. There are also loads of shops, and restaurants.

    My trip to Monterey Bay was amazing, due to how beautiful the scenery was and how close everything was to were I stayed. The Wave Street In was a great hotel to stay in because the aquarium and many restaurants are so close to it you can walk everywhere and not worry about parking. The hotel was also great as everything was clean and the staff was very helpful.

    Visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

    Visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Pre-book tickets online to avoid the ticket lines. Get their map and event schedule and get to events about 15 minutes prior for best positioning. Parking and food is cheaper the farther away from aquarium you go.

    Getting around Monterey is so easy!

    Getting around Monterey is so easy! For tourists, there are only a couple of main streets. Cannery Row is a great place to be—bicycle rides, some of the best burgers in town, and Starbucks. I love the old feel of Fisherman Wharf, with some of the best seafood in the county. I was thrilled with it all. I try to get down there a couple of times a year. It has excellent beaches!

    The aquarium is awesome. There are beautiful parks around the city great for walking or jogging. There are many different types of restaurants to choose from and conveniently located from motels. Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf are a great place for shopping.

    This is one of the most beautiful places in California with the Peninsula to the North and Carmel to Big Sur to the South Redwoods and spectacular sea scape . I felt that this motel/hotel was well furnished internally. The room itself was very good in fact stylish just didn't think it was value for the money compared to the the 8 other recent Hotels we have stayed at in the last month.

    A perfect location for events at the Monterey Fairground! Right across from the festival we went to! Also a quick run or walk down to the Bay and bike/run/walk trail. An extra big plus: the front desk staff! The reception host was amazing and just a generally wonderful person! While the hotel/motel is not a five star spot by any means (it’s all about the convenient location), her hospitality and friendly vibe made our stay extra special and all the better!

    This is the second time my family and I have stayed at this establishment. It is a bare bones hotel, but the employees are nice and helpful. Even though it is an older property, everything was clean and in working condition. The beds were comfortable and the location was peaceful enough to get a good night's sleep. A large mall is within walking distance, so it is quite easy to find food quickly. Also, downtown Monterey is a 15 minute walk away.

    Our stay at Casa Munras was better than we expected! We loved the location (very easy to get to the main Monterey strip). Rooms were very cute and clean. Close to coffee shops, lunch spots, gas, etc. It also has a charging station for electric cars which was great. Hotel staff was super friendly! I would recommend Casa Munras!
