"Loved the location, the bonnfires on the beach"
Stayed 3 nights and never 1 time had room cleaned. The Front Desk staff was extremely slow. Talking on the phone and the line going out the door. Check out time was insanity 3 doing other things with a line 10 people deep. Lobby beautiful indoor seating overlooking the ocean, can see Dolphins, See Otters, and Whales. Very local to Cannery Row. Decent restaurants (chain, fast food, etc.) very close. Some can walk some might drive. Hotel food extremely expensive and fancy for children/young adults.

"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 Hotel, but did not get what was promised"
We were not expecting to have to leave our car in a general parking area and be taken by golf cart to our rooms. A bit inconvenient---if you needed anything out of the car, etc. The pool and hot tub were wonderful. The room was nice, we just would have liked bedside tables as we both wear glasses. One disappointment was that when we booked the reservation, it said "special gift upon arrival". We thought maybe a small bottle of wine or something like that would be in our room, but when we got into our room, there was only an honor bar with very pricey wine, bottled water for $5, a can of Diet Coke for $4, etc. Never received the gift!

"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.

"Location, location, location"
We enjoyed our stay. This motel is on the tip of the Monterey Peninsula, so the prices are higher than you'd expect for this level of room, but that's the going rate here. It was convenient (though a fair walk) to the water, just above the Point Pinos lighthouse and Pacific Grove golf course. It's basically at the top of the 17-mile drive, down to Carmel. The rooms were just OK. Very thin walls, no AC, small TV with few channels. But that's probably not why you're here. Of course the temps cooled down in the evening, very pleasant sleeping with an open window. They have a nice fire pit in the middle of the property, which was a mixed blessing. It was very nice to hang out there with a glass of wine in the evening, or a cup of coffee in the morning. Wasn't quite as nice to have the drunks scream-talking outside our open window at 3 am. They have coffee and muffins in the morning. Would stay here again, but can't overwhelmingly recommend.

    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.
