We stayed here beginning of April during our road trip, the inn was basic but great value, had everything we needed, the bed was comfy and the lady at check in was friendly. If we are ever in Monterey again we would stay again.

My husband and I stayed at the Inn by the Bay Monterey in March 2017 for a Spring Break trip. We thought this was a great, affordable place for our travel needs! We checked in a little early, but luckily our upstairs room was ready when we arrived. The room was clean, updated and had a nice (albeit distant) view...

Loved this Inn! Perfect area and safe. I was very comfortable and the room was nicely decorated. Walking distance to restaurants and bars. Would love to come back! During this visit I was with 3 adults and 2 children. I only stayed one night since we were passing by as we were traveling from San Francisco to LA.

Room was neat and clean. There was ice vending machine. The heater in the room was very close to the bed. No breakfast option with the room, but...

Overall it was a good experience. Room is nice, king bed, quiet, we were in room 17 so far from the street and we couldn't hear a noise. Walls are thin of course but as long as your neighbors are not noisy it's fine. I have some complaints though: - Our shower was leaking from the lever and water temperature...

We stayed here one night as we were traveling on the pacific coast highway on a road trip. This was our favorite hotel we stayed at on our 4 day trip. Super clean, very comfortable and has a friendly helpful staff. Great value for the price: no breakfast but they did have coffee/tea and even a computer with a printer...

We've stayed in a lot of places travelling around California and this has been one of the best. We stayed here to go whale watching and visit the aquarium. Really clean rooms, quiet location and we felt totally safe. Places to eat nearby and wifi was good.
