Was there March 16th and 17th. The sunsets were so amazing. Listening to the waves crash all night was the best thing. My boyfriend and I would stay there again. The staff at the bar were awesome! Would highly recommend but upgrade to premium and get ocean view room!

"Luxury Carmel by the Sea"
We had a very comfortable, enjoyable stay with attentive staff, quality amenities (WiFi included) and beautiful gardens. It's a classic,old hotel very well maintained and updated. The full complementary breakfast on the 2nd floor patio was delicious. There's also a manager's evening wine tasting in the lobby & homemade chocolate chip cookies and milk from 7-8pm. Not the hotels fault, but unfortunately, there was road construction being done on the corner from 8:30-4, so a bit extra noise. A personal request would be to have a sign at the pool for "No cellphones". There was a woman talking at length while we were trying to relax. There's parking on the street or a small lot next door. The beach is a short 3 blocks away with stunning views. They also offer free shuttle service to-from downtown shops/restaurants if you don't want to walk (~5 blocks) in the dark (very safe but no street lights) or have a disability.

"Nice place to rest after long days af the races"
I spent two nights there mostly just using it to relax after long days at Laguna Seca Raceway. I didn't get a chance to take advantage of it's great location, near the wharf and beach. It is easy walking distance from both. The room was clean and comfortable, though a little dated. The place was built in the 50s and the stairways are narrow, and it is an interesting layout with a normal door on onside of the room, and a sliding glass door on the side facing the small pool. The weird part is that there was a common walkway/balcony connecting all the rooms and stairs together, so you don't want to leave the glass door open unless you don't mind the possibility of unwanted visitors. The room was clean, the bathroom was nice. It had a coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave and cable TV on a medium sized flat screen. It would be a nice base for a week of fun in Monterey.

"Very nice hotel. "
Very nice hotel. My only complains would be that the fireplace was located on the side of the bed and was only about 2 feet from the bed so it was hard to sit in front of. My second complaint is that the breakfast wasn't very good. No eggs, no hot oatmeal or packets. And also no fruit.

"Great adult only hotel in a family town! "
This hotel on Del Monte Ave in Monterey offers something for adults in a town that caters to families, due at least to the aquarium. Close to the Naval Postgraduate school and one mile form Monterey's Fish House, this location is great for business people and other short term adult visitors. A roof top bar offers a nice touch and a place to have a drink in he afternoon. Breakfast included in a very nicely appointed dining room. Very fine breakfast, with various options for different dietary preferences. My room was small, but entire,y adequate for the purpose. Some darker curtains would be helpful.

"Family owned, personal attention if needed"
The rooms have "your grandmother's parlor" decor. This is if you grandmother had really good taste and could afford to decorate with real antiques. It's comfortable and clean and the free breakfast is adequate. The family that owns the property is very motivated to make you feel comfortable and our every request was granted. I would stay there again.

    Monterey Beach Hotel Guide

    Unique doesn’t begin to describe a stay at a Monterey oceanfront hotel. That’s because a trip to this quirky cove on the Northern California coast is unlike any other beach vacation you may have taken in the past. You won’t find run-of-the-mill crowded seafronts, campy t-shirts, and tacky restaurants. In Monterey, your shoreline is 99 miles of immaculate delight, interspersed with majestic cliffs rising from the sea, secluded strips of sandy serenity, and jagged rock formations that challenge the waves. Instead of fruity cocktails with a tiny umbrella and a pineapple garnish, you’ll enjoy a vintage, full-bodied pinot noir with hints of vanilla, clove, and caramel, aged in an oak barrel from a local winery. Gone, too, are the whacky waterparks and miniature putt-putt courses. Instead you’ll enjoy scenic cliff-side hiking trails and championship-caliber golf destinations. Monterey beach hotels like the Ramada Limited are a perfect place to witness the wonder of this rugged Eden by the Pacific.

    Can I go whale watching by Monterey?

    The West Coast is prime territory to observe whales migrating on their annual voyage because of the colder waters. Monterey is no exception to that rule. Here are some popular whale watching cruise services. You’ll more than likely encounter Monterey’s iconic sea otters as well:

    • Sanctuary Cruises: Enjoy longer, year-round eco-friendly tours and charter cruises led by marine biologists.
    • Princess Monterey Whale Watching: The 99% success rate guarantees that you’ll see humpback, gray, blue, and sperm whales, as well as orcas, dolphins, and porpoises.
    • Monterey Bay Whale Watch: Owner Nancy Black penned a published paper on how humpback whales work to rescue other animals from orcas. Stop by for her unique perspective on the mighty superhero of the sea.
    • Chris’ Fishing and Whale Watching: Take your pick between deep sea fishing and up close encounters with Monterey’s massive marine mammals.

    What is the best beach to visit in Monterey?

    Who are we to decide which beach is the best on Monterey Bay? That would be akin to saying that Monet is a better painter than Degas or Renoir. We recommend you kick off your shoes and find out for yourself. With nearly 100 miles of coastline, these are the three closest beaches to Monterey proper:

    • Marina State Beach: The cliffs give way to a weathered shore in this natural preserve. Hang-gliders float overhead as you collect driftwood from the tideline.
    • Moss Landing State Beach: Rolling dunes make for a perfect picnic spot. In between nibbles of artisan cheese and sips of chardonnay, marvel at shorebirds at this stop along the Pacific Flyway.
    • Monterey State Beach: Explore the tide pools, cast a line into the surf, or steer a kite though the stiff breeze at this beachcomber’s playground.

    When you use Travelocity to book your Northern California vacation at one of many fabulous Monterey hotels on the beach like the Hotel Abrego, you’ll return home with unique memories of an oceanside getaway filled with wind-swept shores, gracefully imposing whales, and scenic sunsets over the Pacific. And, thanks to the money you’ll save, you’ll probably bring back a couple of bottles of local reds and whites, too.
