"We have been coming here for at least 20 years. The prices has gone up considerably, but love it when we get the discounts. Awesome place to stay. we were celebrating my wife's birthday and we were sent wine to our room. Excellent staff, very friendly."

Perched on a quiet, sandy beach with sweeping views of the bay, Monterey Tides, part of Joie de Vivre Hotels, offers a secluded coastal retreat. Unwind to the hypnotic sound of waves crashing on this intimate stretch of beach away from the touristy downtown waterfront.

Guest rooms evoke the ocean with rich blue walls and crisp white linens. All rooms have minifridges, coffeemakers with Starbucks coffee and blackout shades. Some rooms offer views of the garden, while others overlook the ocean. It is worth mentioning that guest rooms are accessed via shared exterior walkways, so expect other guests to pass by your window. The rooms are equipped with air conditioning. 

Hop on a beach cruiser bike, available for rent at the hotel, and pedal 15 minutes along the well-maintained, mostly flat Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail to popular Fisherman's Wharf. Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium are about 15 minutes away by car.

The on-site Vizcaino Waterfront Food + Drink restaurant is a nice spot to take in the view while dining on seafood dishes like fish tacos, clam chowder and seared scallops. The lively Bar Sebastián offers sweeping views of Monterey Bay, as well as a seasonal menu, craft cocktails and beers on tap.

The rooms are basic and a little dark. The Lobby is beautiful. Nicely decorated and overlooking the Monterey bay. I could sit there for hours!

The location is excellent. Right on the beach and easy access to the freeway. Our server at the restaurant was very good.
Other Comments
When we arrived, the front desk person was obviously inexperienced. Didn’t provide information about hotel amenities. Our room had no wash clothes and no soap. We were informed that the hotel was out of soap. We were upgraded to a ocean view room which was better and did have soap and wash clothes. Not sure why the room had no brochures with hotel information. We were told we could look it up online. Upon checkout, I failed to notice an erroneous charge for a breakfast of $75. This was my fault for not checking our bill more closely.

The view and the location

The hotel is run down from the outside. They’ve done some room improvements but they’re still old. There were badly repaired walls and even cracks next to the heater where daylight came in from outside.

Being right on the beach.
Other Comments
Needs new carpet. Needs new and more elevators. Rooms with shower and toilet need to be a bit bigger. Good thing m husband and I are not large people. Maybe the doors should open out instead of in or maybe a pocket door would be better. Don't think there should have been a resort fee for parking and such. The price of the room should have covered that.
