The Monterey Bay hotel was lovely. We were upgraded to a view of the ocean and it was spectacular. Our room was wonderful. We would definitely stay there again when we come back to this area.

The continental breakfast was horrible. The hard boil eggs we’re old and the fruit was dried out. The hot water for the tea was room temperature. Coffee tasted day old.

We really enjoyed our weekend at your hotel. The view was awesome, saw many sea lions come and go from the harbor. The staff was excellent and we had a wonderful time. I’d definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great getaway.

The area can’t be beat, next to San Carlos Beach, and a 15 minute walk to shopping and the aquarium. The desk staff member was pleasant and the room comfortable. My only constructive criticism is that the decor could need some updating/refreshing.
