Inn By the Bay Monterey, Monterey
Too expensive for what they offer guests.
The hotel is too expensive for the condition of the rooms and the cleanliness. They did not even have a small bottle of water to welcome guests. Not even a bottle of water to buy as an option. Very old and dirty looking towels.

Room number 2
I had room number 2. The number 1 room bathroom is right at my head broad. you can heard the shower going in he middle of the night and the up-stair room you can heard people walking back and forward. the room number 3 they have the TV going at the middle of the night. I did complain and they did turn if off but they turn the TV back on after 10mins

Nice reception but......
The receptionist was nice and was quick in checking us in. The biggest problem was the noise upstairs. We could hear the people upstairs walking back and forth, they made noises like metal was being filed, drawers opened and closed repeatedly, sound like carpet is being stapled up to 12 midnight. We barely slept. I think the linens were not clean coz when we pulled the cover there were visible debris. The closet was also occupied with a portable air conditioner so we can’t really put in our luggage or clothes. We missed the comfort of home while we were there.

cold in monterey
We have stayed at this motel before but probably not again. When we checked in the room was cold and the windows were wide open. The wall heater didn't seem to work and the "portable" heater didn't do a very good job--we ran it all night just to keep 70 degrees.

Beware of additional charges
It was OK but the front desk was not impressive. I told them I had a dog on check-in & was asked if it was small or large. I said small as I have a 50lb dog I consider medium-lg. On checkout I noticed an additional $10 charge added without any conversation about the reason. The explaination provided was the dog was bigger than they were told. My 30 lb dog was not an issue & there was no discussion of a change in cost based on weight at check-in. I was annoyed by the additional charges particularly with no explainaton prior to padding my bill.
