Wave Street Inn, Monterey
Comfy, Close, and COOL.
The re-do on the place is nicely done, including spacious bathrooms with tubs that are deep enough for total immersion ...thank you, and the beds are very comfy. The staff were just fine, it is super close to the Aquarium and the rates are quite reasonable. We had a lovely time.

Pleasant stay for a night
Our stay was for only 1 night but it was a comfortable stay. We got there early, though there were no rooms available at that time the front desk person was very courteous and did make an effort to get us checked in. The location was perfect. The next time we travel back to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium we will book there again.

Definitely recommend
We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very modern and very clean. The staff were very helpful. Our daughter unfortunately came down with the stomach flu and we had to extend our stay a day. The staff was very helpful in letting us upgrade our room and offered to help us move to new room. It’s a great location to the Cannery Row area and we only used the car to go farther distances. Definitely recommend this place.

Perfect for My Family
Stayed with my husband and 2 kids for our aquarium trip. The check in was friendly, quick and simple. Room was spacious and clean with very comfortable beds. We all loved sitting at the fire pits after a day of walking all around Monterey. The lower level on site parking was safe affordable and extremely convenient. Pretty much anything you could need is within walking distance. We’ll definitely stay here again

Uk folks beware
Very clean and comfortable, but room lacked a way to have hot water for tea, and the TV did not allow movie viewing channels. Great location but for the price I would really like some tea at night.
