Great value for money Inn. Excellent location one block back from the canning factory precinct. The room was spacious, clean, and well appointed. Reception was well staffed friendly and helpful. I marked it down only because the room was noisy at night with air-conditioning and fridge noises and I am a light sleeper. It is an older building in excellent condition but it doesn't have noise proofing. Other than that it was a great place to stay. If you fall asleep easily then this is the place for you.

Sadly... I "used" this beautiful hotel for one night's sleep and thats it... however if you're coming to monterey for several night, don't hesitate with this one. They have it all: (my room was two queens) Wonderful beds. Been to so many "one night" hotels and it's so important... well this is A+ Completely separated bathroom with a very good shower. The room is quite spacious considering it's a regular room. Located almost at the best street but as I wrote - a few steps from it. You wake up to the screams of seagulls and for me, it's waking up with a smile... Front desk woman was efficient and helpful. Plenty of (paid) parking. Hotel decor is impressive and welcoming, with fire pits in the yard (no smoking!!) A respectable hotel with fare pricing.

We went for a family trip plus business meeting at a nearby hotel. The family went to the aquarium everyday, and would go back to the room to nap, and then head back to the aquarium. It was an easy walk back to the hotel from the aquarium with lovely views. The room itself was a little small, and we had some humidity issues, but it was recently remodeled and looked very nice. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again. The area outside of our room had big rocks to sit on and there were tables and chairs around, as well as a fire pit if we wanted to be out of the room. It was perfect when we brought lunch back to our hotel to eat. Overall it was a very positive experience and the staff was fantastic!

It was an easy walk to Cannery Row for shopping and dinner. The firepits in the courtyard were wonderful. We talked with many other guests sitting around the firepit. The staff was super friendly. Parking is conveniently located underneath the hotel. I would have rated this hotel a 5 except for the noise from people walking on the floor above us. I would recommend staying here.

This was a great visit, affordable hotel, nicely modernized, walking distance to good restaurants and friendly staff checking us in and out. The courtyard on the second floor was open and clean, the firepits/fireplaces looked like a fun place to sit.

Great location in Monterey, only 1 block off of Cannery Row, so easy access to food, shopping and the Monterey Aquarium. Our room was clean, comfortable & nicely decorated, including a spacious bathroom with a great shower! Plus, the staff was very friendly & accommodating. Comfy chairs and firepits were a nice place to relax & chat outside in the evening. And they offer private, onsite parking. I would definitely recommend Wave Street Inn to other travelers. We really enjoyed our stay.

Stayed here for two nights in early August. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from Cannery Row. The room was nicely decorated and had everything you would need (plus there is a welcome bag of snacks given to you when you arrive which is a really nice touch) and the beds were very comfortable. The staff at check in/check out were friendly and helpful, parking is easy and an added bonus is the Wave Street Cafe across the street (had two great breakfasts there) and the Sea Harvest fish restaurant around the corner (very much like an English fish and chip shop!). Would definitely recommend, and would definitely return.

This is our second stay at Wave Street Inn. We booked the family suite which was perfect for us which included two teenagers. The rooms were spacious and amenities well stocked. The staff were courteous and friendly. Can’t beat the location! Close enough to cannery row but far enough to be a bit more quiet. All our activities were within walking distance (hop on the free trolley if you want to go into downtown Monterey). We will definitely stay again for future visits to Monterey.

Highly recommend this hotel. Rooms tastefully decorated. Member of staff at check was very helpful and kind as at first room was not ready but as we were parking he followed us to say one became free. Also have a welcome gift of snacks (nice touch) Great location and easy walk to main centre.
