We stayed at the hotel for Spring Break. The rooms were small and constantly damp. The bathroom is SUPER cramped with mold in the shower. The beds were also too soft. Staff was friendly when we could find them. The pool was nicely kept. The lobby was in tip top shape with an amazing view and a pretty good Happy...

From the moment I checked in I was so pleased I had chosen this hotel. The staff were friendly, professional and went out of their way to make everything run smoothly. The location is fabulous ...I had read that it's right on the beach, but when I turned the corner to my ocean front room I couldn't believe I was...

What a nice weekend we spent at the Monterey Tides. The room includes breakfast in their cozy restaurant with sweeping bay views. You can walk (it's a nice walk but long-ish, almost 2 miles) to the Wharf, either on the path or on the beach. Great!

The location is perfect for that beach front access and sunset gazing, the rooms however left much to desire. Upon arrival you are directed to park in their paylot and there are a lot of spaces, no street parking close enough. The attendant that evening was incredibly helpful and I wish I could have remembered her name because she added...

We are from northern California and needed to hop down to Carmel to visit the mission for my son's 4th grade report. Given the weather was to be nice enough to enjoy the beach, I made a reservation at the Monterey Tides, which is literally on the water. When you walk into the lobby, you are immediately struck by the...

Had a great time at the Monterey Tides the front desk staff was very helpful when it came to local places to eat. The view from our room was amazing. Not sure but if you are a fan of the HBO show Big Little Lies I'm pretty sure they filmed at this hotel. The room was a little on the...

The hotel was nice but needed some upgrading. The shower from the beach did not work and the only way to remove sand was to track it through to our room shower. The pool was very nice and well maintained. The location was perfect... a short distance from the hustle and bustle of town with long stretches of beach for...

Great view of the ocean. Saw dolphins swimming by in the early morning. Did the bonfire at night. Kids had a blast swimming in the heated pool, hot tub and of course playing in the waves. Will definitely be our go to place when visiting Monterey in the future!

Only thing I'd change would be to put a rinse off station by beach access so there'd be less sand tracked into the room. Otherwise it was a great stay, good food, and friendly service. We stayed in the off season so it was a great price for an ocean view.
