Inn By the Bay Monterey, Monterey
It ended up costing a lot more than my initial price. Way more, in fact! I had to go into a different room and they charged me a higher price. For what I paid, I could have stayed at a much better hotel. There was also supposed to be a breakfast. There was only coffee and tea in the lobby. I didn't find the employee at the desk very friendly. I felt I was imposing rather than welcomed.

I Won't Stay Here Again
We chose this hotel because the photos indicated they had a "breakfast room" so we thought they had continental breakfast. All they had was coffee, tea and hot chocolate and it was only served in the morning. When we got there, my elderly mother could not climb the stairs and we had to give the 2nd floor room to my sister. Because that room had 2 beds instead of King, they charged us extra for it. They were not friendly at all and the shampoo dispenser was almost empty and never refilled.

Very Good8.0
good hotel to stay at. only drawback was the noise from the upstairs room and outside the hotel room. They did offer ear plugs for their guests though.

Very Nice Stay
8 minute walk from downtown, 10 minute drive from aquarium and Cannery Row. Convenient, reasonably priced. If parking lot looks full, it isn’t. Go to the end and turn right for another private lot. Awesome coffee machine in lobby. Comfortable beds and bedding.
