Cozy, ideally located!
Amazing location. Proximity cant be beat. Sea Harvest restaurant, located directly behind The Wave Inn has THE best fish & chips, fresh fish, clam chowder, everything A++.

Nice updated older hotel. Great location and covered parking even after check out was a huge bonus. Fire pits were nice in the evening. Took forever to figure out how to turn on the TV tho!

Wonderful location close to Cannery Row, very convenient. Nice sized rooms, clean, reasonably well-maintained rooms and grounds; love the twin fire pits and seats. Carol at front desk is a treasure! I'll definitely stay again when I'm next in Monterey.
