About Monterey Tides, Monterey

Cozy, beachside Monterey resort with a heated pool

Between ocean and lagoon

Monterey's only resort located directly on the beach, Monterey Tides faces the Pacific, with Laguna del Rey at its back. After a morning of beach play or a bike ride around Laguna Grande Regional Park, you can drive to downtown Monterey in 10 minutes.

7 golf courses nearby

There are 7 golf courses within a 15-minute drive, including the coveted greens of Pebble Beach and others along the iconic 17-mile drive. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is fun for all ages, and you won't regret a stroll through bustling Fisherman's Wharf or colorful Cannery Row.

Cocktails and ocean views

When the ocean gets too cold, a heated pool and hot tub will warm things up, and a fitness center is also available. All that activity is well rewarded with inventive fresh-catch dishes at Cafe Beach Restaurant, or fireside cocktails at Sandals Lounge - both have sweeping views.

Airy rooms, mini-fridge

Facing the ocean or the verdant courtyard, the 196 guestrooms are breezy and bright, with floor-to-ceiling windows and blackout shades for a good night's sleep. Mini-fridges and coffeemakers make in-room snacking convenient, and HDTVs and iPod® docks offer entertainment.

Jim, us1 night romance trip
Monterey Tides, Monterey
Great view but overpriced room.
The hotel location was excellent, great ocean front views. The restaurant was very good though the food was served warm not hot. The room itself was not worth half the price I paid. The bed was very hard and uncomfortable, the pillows were okay at best. The toilet paper was 1 ply fine sand paper. Also, there was no breakfast of any kind offered with the room. The great view evened out the lack of room appeal however one time staying here was enough due to the price.

Better places to stay than here
Booked a king bed partial view got stuck in a room with 2 queen beds and on the freeway side of the hotel extremely loud, thin walls, Our room was under the resturant and it was so loud with the movement upstairs. Was in town for a romantic getaway and it was ruined by this place staff was not very accommodating either or willing to help. Didn’t get any refund for paying the price for the king with a view was a bait and switch they kept the money for the more expensive room and we got the down grade

Very Good8.0
Spectacular views, but somewhat dated property
We chose Monterey Tides because of the view, and because a relative had stayed there previously and enjoyed it. We love Monterey and the views were spectacular, but the property is somewhat dated, albeit well maintained. The beach access was probably the best you can find in Monterey, but you're some distance to the usual highlights of Monterey: Cannery Row and the Aquarium. Still, if you're going to take the 17 Mile Drive and Pebble Beach -- MY highlight for Monterey -- any Monterey location is convenient. In short, we loved our stay. We'd do it again.
