We enjoyed our stay here at the Inn By The Bay, Monterey. The room was clean, cosy and comfortable and wifi was strong. Although the motel is on the main road into Monterey, the room was quiet and we slept well. The bed was comfy and we liked the little table and chair set. it's an easy walk to town,...

This was a very nice hotel and we had a nice, big, comfortable room. It looked like a nice quiet location and we had a room right at one end, which we thought would be perfect. Unfortunately, our room was right by the smoking area, so not only was there a lot of disturbance from smokers chatting loudly just outside...

During our CA-Trip we stayed in the motel for a night, that was ok, the reception area looked alright but the room was a little run-down some appliances didnt work properly. But we had a nice view on the bay!

Great non chain accommodation. Room was really nice and very spacious,very clean and huge bathroom. Very walkable to downtown and Fisherman's Wharf. A nice 30 min walk to Cannery Row, which is well worth the walk. Staff could not have been more helpful with both check in and tourist enquiries. I would thoroughly recommend staying here and would love to...

We stayed here for one night on our road trip, but wished we had stayed for 2! It was a really lovely and large room, with two very large comfortable beds. Big tv, however no fridge in our room. There is aircon but it is very noisy, however if you have a room with back doors/windows overlooking the sea there...

The lodge is very convenient to restaurants, shopping, churches and most of all Fisherman's Wharf. No breakfast but a discount was offered at a near by restaurant ( Kathy's) was great. Carpet was being installed in rooms but they were gone by 5:00. Clean, good bed and we liked the shower no tub.

Formerly El Adobe Inn is a great place to stay, it is clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. Misha the new manager and daughter of the owners has been on a remodel campaign and has really improved the rooms. I stay with them monthly, have for the past 2 years and never had anything but a positive experience. I highly...

This was the cheapest place we booked along our west coast trip from LA to SF - about $100/night/room. I was initially anxious to see what would be there for us on arrival after a bad experience in San Simeon ( which had also been rated highly on Trip Advisor) but was pleasantly surprised, and relieved, upon arrival. We had...
