Overview

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 are rich with ocean blue colors, and all offer minifridges, coffeemakers with Starbucks coffee, blackout shades and complimentary Wi-Fi. Some rooms have 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. 

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 areabout 15 minutes away by car.

The on-site Cafe Beach restaurant is a nice spot to take in the view while dining on seafood dishes like fish tacos, clam chowder and seared scallops.

Service was very slow, and there is no way the street side room is worth $350 per night. For that kind of money the Monterey Plaza is 3x nicer!

Wonderful experience with front desk and room service staff. The system was down and the check-in line was long, but they were very patient and helpful, even when people were upset about the wait.
