Fairfield, California3 contributions
This hotel offers a very unique experience. Built in 1904 and it’s still going today! Take it for what it’s worth. You’re not staying in a luxury suite. It’s something historical. It’s fairly cheap compared to the other hotels around it and has everything you need! Our room was a good temp, bed was nice, room was clean, bathroom was clean, it smelled good. We had a big standing dresser that was carved out. My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay! We’d definitely book again. The hot tub was nice, and quiet! You’re right in the heart of downtown Monte Rey too! We walked everywhere we needed to go. No need for the car. The only complaints I have is the birds are loud as HELL. They can control that lol. The noise seeps through the windows easily, but honestly it didn’t really bother me. If you’re busy all day walking around and doing stuff you‘ll be too tired to even care. Also you can just play a white noise to block it out. We loved the hotel!

Location was decent, but that’s about it. Room had no window, pillows were terrible, upstairs neighbours kept me up all night since you could hear everything that was going on in the other rooms. Anything from simple talking to furniture moving. I got out of there early since I couldn’t sleep anyway. Receptionist was kind though.

A beautiful historic Hotel right in the middle of all of the action. Plenty of restaurant options within walking distance. We enjoyed the Fishermans warf for some site seeing, shopping and a wonderful Italian dinner at Domenicos… the hotel provided use with a coupon for a free appetizer.

Can't beat the location, and it's much more affordable than nearby competition. It's a historic building so the amenities aren't new, but it was extremely clean and had what we needed for a short stay. Being right in the middle of Alvarado is unbeatable. You are walking distance to all the typical stuff Monterey has to offer. The rooms were nice but missing a fridge, and the pillow were too big for me, although I didn't ask if there were different pillows. Otherwise, we had a great stay!

This hotel is right in the downtown area and nice walk to the Cannery Row area. The historic room was nice and clean and the service was great. The grab and go breakfast items were a nice touch. Great value for the price. Only issue was the wifi internet not being fast enough to get work done from the room.

My family and I stayed at the Monterey Hotel for a birthday trip. The birthday girl picked this hotel because of its historic architecture. The tall ceilings made the room feel bigger and the furnishings throughout the hotel added to the historic vibe. It was nice to support a family owned business as well. The staff accommodated a very late check-in, but we would have liked to arrive earlier to experience the therapeutic pool. Although we arrived late, we found parking in front of the hotel and with 90 minutes street parking starting at 9 a.m., I didn't have to rush to move my car before checking out. Great start to a birthday trip in Monterey!

Great location The employees at the front desk were nice— night crew. There were 2 individually packaged face cleansing tissues in the bathroom, but no bar soap. There was a bug on the mirror and around the facet was dirty. If you are staying in the historic building, you have to walk up the stairs after getting off the elevator. The duvet didn’t smell clean. You can easily hear people snoring, talking, and TVs from other rooms. I couldn’t sleep at all.

The historic nature of the building is amazing. That comes with downsides like paper thin walls. Would only recommend if you enjoy waking up with clear conversations from your neighbors. Beautiful place and history, but won't be going again.

You can't beat the Monterey Hotel if you're looking for an affordable hotel, with a downtown location and some historic Monterey charm. It is close to the Wharf and other downtown restaurants. The aquarium and Cannery Row are an easy and scenic 30 minute stroll away.
