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.

    Aquarium is a must! Lovely little beach town on Cannery Row.

    Aquarium is a must! Lovely little beach town on Cannery Row. Plenty of shopping and dining, check out the sardine factory for dinner or happy hour. If you’d like to explore Big Sur it will only take you about 1.5 hours south along Hwy 1. While extremely convenient, there is a free trolley service that stops at all major locations within the town but constantly jerks and stops abruptly causing for an uncomfortable experience. Ride at your own risk!

    Monterey was lovely, a great place to walk around and lots to see and do. We wish we had stayed longer. And it would also have been good to go to Carmel if we had stayed longer. The Dust Bowl brewery down near the harbour was great. (It's in between a main road and a car park so doesn't look brilliant from the outside but worth a visit!). The Fieldwork brewery on Munras Ave is also worth checking out, but only on a sunny day as it's outside seating only! The aquarium is supposed to be one of the best in the world but we were fairly underwhelmed.

    The centre of the town is rather tacky & expensive but the National Park at Point Lobos is lovely, as is the coastal drive (or cycle) to Carmel. The Aquarium was somewhat disappointing and very overpriced inside. The small Art museum is worth a short visit. The dedicated, car free trail for pedestrians and cyclists is a nice idea.

    Monterey is a great place to spend a few days.

    Monterey is a great place to spend a few days. There is a lot to see and once you learn the one ways streets it is easy to get around. The wharf is fine, Cannery row is a tourist spot but it is fun and the aquarium is great. Food is very good in Monterey and Carmel.

    Cannery Row is a bit of a tourist trap, but if you head away from the beach you quickly access the restaurants of Lighthouse Avenue, including Hula - Hawaian food. If I had my time again, I would have tried to stay nearer to the Acquariam, even as far west as Pacific Grove (technically the next town along), near the delights of Happy Girl Kitchen.

    The motel has been refurbished recently and the rooms were fresh, clean and comfortable. Although the rooms at the front of the property on the main road may have been a bit noisy we had a room upstairs at the back and it was very easy to sleep. Reception staff were all helpful and friendly, especially Naomi. The hotel is located not far from Cannery Row and the Wharf and it was easy to find parking downtown. Safeway supermarket is just a couple of minutes away which is a bonus.

    Location of property was ideal for downtown Monterey and an easy walk to Fishermans Wharf. It was also an easy drive down to Carmel. Car parking was great - managed to get parked right outside our hotel room. Bed was comfy - room was a good size. Bathroom was a great size. Nice to have toiletries and lovely fresh towels. Also liked that there was a safe in the room. Pool looked nice, although we didn't make use of it.

    Amicable staff. We got a pack with edible goodies at the check-in. The room is OK, but the bathroom is too cold (we stayed during winter). Wlakable distance to Cannery RowUpon check-in, we were greeted by friendly staff and given a package of snacks. The room was satisfactory, but the bathroom felt too chilly during our winter stay. The hotel's distance from Cannery Row is walkable.
