Very friendly staff

Feb 21, 2020

On second leg, we were able to change seats when we checked in st counter so we could sit together. It would be great if after first class and business class, Delta would hoard window seat passengers, then center seat passengers, then aisle seat passengers, not enough room to be able to stand in aisle when you have to get In and out to let window people, then center people in!!!

Feb 21, 2020

Very friendly, extra helpful staff on plane

Feb 17, 2020

Great air fare price.

Feb 16, 2020

I had forgotten my coat at a concourse cafe, and we were about the last to board. He told me exactly how much time I had to run back and get it, and told the agent at the next gate to expect me back so I didn't panic when the jetway door was closed. Employee of the month!

Feb 15, 2020

My baggage went on wrong flight.

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Monterey

These handy tips and pointers about airport security checks will save you plenty of time on your journey to Monterey:

  • Ensure your passport and boarding pass are not difficult to reach. You will be instructed to show them straightaway.
  • You'll have to pause the music for a few minutes. Headphones and earphones need to be removed and put in a bin to be X-rayed. The same applies to items such as heavy jackets and belts.
  • Laptops, tablets and other electronic devices must be placed in separate bins to be X-rayed.
  • Flying with your favorite perfume? As long as it's not bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it's stored in a clear resealable plastic bag, you can keep it in your hand luggage.
  • Hiking boots and other bulky shoes are most often X-rayed. Consider wearing simple sneakers instead.
  • The list of prohibited items is forever changing. Read over your carrier's official website to understand what is not allowed on board their flights.

When adventure calls your name, whatever you do, don’t ignore it. You might find yourself with a driver in hand, standing over your ball on the tee-box of one of the most celebrated golf courses on the PGA Tour.

You’ll discover our vast selection of flights to Monterey, CA (MRY) which make it easy for you to embark on an unforgettable trip.

Transportation From MRY

Monterey flights arrive at the relatively small Monterey Regional Airport (MRY). Once you grab your luggage from the baggage claim carousel, you’ll have a few transportation options at your disposal to help you get to your hotel. Cabs from a handful of regulated taxi services are available for hire, and the Monterey Salinas Transit authority has bus routes that serve MRY, too. More likely, though, you’ll want a rental car for your stay on the peninsula. In that case, you can pick up your vehicle from one of about a half-dozen on-site companies.

Hotels Near MRY

To provide a sense of perspective, Monterey Regional Airport is only 4 miles from the Fisherman’s Wharf and Municipal Beach in town, putting all area accommodations in proximity. If you are undecided on a resort, we recommend the following hotels near MRY:

  • Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa – Built into the cliffs that separate Cannery Row from the rocky shores below, the Monterey Plaza offers luxurious comforts that stand in stark contrast to the surrounding tough terrain. From the Whirlpool spas on the massive deck overlooking the harbor to the world-class spa, guests are pampered throughout their stay.
  • Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa – Set on a majestic 22-acre property on the rolling hills overlooking the corner of Monterey Bay, the Hyatt welcomes its guests with a championship-caliber golf course, live jazz lounge, and farm-to-table California cuisine-Tuscan fusion restaurant. In between the sand-traps and sandwiches, indulge in a treatment from the Marilyn Monroe Spa, take a slow saunter along the walking trails, or rent a bicycle for a quick cruise to the coast.
  • Monterey Tides, a Joie de Vivre Boutique Hotel – Located just north of Monterey State Beach, the Tides is far enough away from the attractions downtown to afford its guests with a quiet—seemingly private—stretch of beachfront paradise. Let the sound of the rolling tide lull you to sleep on your plush mattress with signature bedding before waking to a locally sourced breakfast at Café Beach.
  • Portola Hotel & Spa at Monterey Bay – Just steps from boutique shopping, coastal walking trails, and fine dining establishments, the Portola is in a perfect place to explore the entire Monterey peninsula. The outdoors impeccably blend into the décor in the nautically inspired guestrooms, and the on-site spa and fitness center boast the largest facilities in the county.

Things to Do Near MRY

There’s little doubt that your Monterey vacation will include strolls along Cannery Row, taking in the sights at Fisherman’s Wharf, and relaxing along the rugged Pacific shoreline. Make sure to fit these fun things to do near MRY into your Monterey itinerary, even if you are only in town on a long layover:

  • Pebble Beach – You don’t need to be a golf fanatic to enjoy a tour of the famed Pebble Beach Golf Links. Walk out to Arrowhead Point or stand behind the tee at the iconic 10th hole to get a sense of what PGA Tour players experience every weekend.
  • Monterey Bay Aquarium – With behind-the-scenes tours, special feeding opportunities, and daily shows, there is always something extra to see at this captivating attraction. Once a working sardine canning facility, the aquarium is now home to over 500 species of marine life.
  • 17-Mile Drive – Put your rental car to good use on this spectacular stretch of scenic highway. One of the most picturesque roadways in the nation, a cruise along 17-Mile Drive rewards you with breathtaking vistas of the Pacific coast to the west. Hopefully, you rented a convertible.
