Say “Buenos dias” to Monterey at a Spanish-inspired boutique hotel off
the iconic Cali coast. Hotel Abrego’s stucco exterior, terra-cotta roof
tiles, tower-style chimneys and ornamental iron décor will transport you
to a Mediterranean climate, while the beauty of California surrounds
you. Courtyards, patios and private balconies that jet off the luxury
guestrooms are inviting oases, while the abundance of fresh air and
gathering spots are the perfect excuse to practice that laid-back Cali
living. You’re also steps away from the downtown shops, restaurants and
nightlife of Monterey.
At this TripAdvisor Certificate of
Excellence winner, the rustic dining room and al fresco patio of Bistro
Abrego offer extensive menus of local-meets-Spanish cuisine. Before you
set off to explore Monterey, try dishes like the breakfast burrito or
ranch eggs. You can also spend time soaking in the hot tub or bathing in
the swimming pool, and from there, go out on a golf trip, a
whale-watching tour or a ride on the wine trolley (yes, that’s a thing).
Your hardest decision? Which of the beautiful area beaches to visit
first. Buenos dias, indeed.
True luxury is a fireplace, a chaise lounge,
spa-style cotton robes and a 37-in. flat-panel cable LCD HDTV, around
which you can cozy up and watch your favorite shows. It’s also exactly
what you’ll find waiting for you in your Hotel Abrego guestroom. Both
the Premier King and the Premier Two Queen rooms feature stone
fireplaces, balconies or patios, Keurig coffee makers and spacious
bathrooms to keep you stylish and comfortable – just choose which
bedding configuration you’d prefer.
for breakfast and dinner, the popular Bistro Abrego features local fare
and spirits that are inspired by the Cali coast, highlighting fresh
ingredients, as well as a laid-back atmosphere that serves as the
perfect backdrop to casual cuisine. Cozy furnishings, a rustic fireplace
and an outdoor patio make this an intimate gathering place for visitors
and locals alike. With dishes like the breakfast burrito, ranch eggs or
prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and Abrego clam chowder, this eatery has
won rave reviews.
From waves to wines,
this part of Cali is delightfully laid-back. Monterey is a scenic drive
away from San Jose and San Francisco and an iconic stop along the Big
Sur coastline. Even closer are downtown Monterey’s restaurants, shops
and nightlife, just steps away; golfing, surfing, horseback riding and
outdoor adventures are also in abundance here. Other fun ideas include
visiting the beaches, fairgrounds and Fisherman’s Wharf, as well as
How to Get There
I got a great rate and the parking was free. It's a short walk to the wharf and a $10 Uber to the Aquarium. The staff at the front desk couldn't be nicer. That being said, this hotel is loud. I was there two nights and I was so happy the room above me wasn't used the second night, as it sounded like elephants every time they walked. Also, my room had an outside door - not an inside corridor like a hotel - more a motel. Had I known that, I would have booked elsewhere. there appear to be rooms that DO have inside? I would call and confirm before booking. My bathroom looked nothing like hte pictures here - much older and the sink was in the room - not in the bathroom. And the AC/Heat blew RIGHT on the bed. good thing for us it was cold and we could just turn it off while sleeping. The room I had was near some maintenance closet, so we were awoken each day as they started work - that was an hour or so AFTER the dumpster was loudly emptied. As I was checking the drawers when we left to ensure I didn't forget anything I found some complementary ear plugs. Wish I'd found them two days earlier. If I were to book here again, I'd ask for a guarantee as to room location and I'd bring ear plugs. I think for the right room, this hotel is ok. But not the one I had if you want to stay more than a night or two. There is a delightful French bakery across the street in the alley. And you can buy aquarium tickets at the front desk and avoid the lines when you get there.
We chose this on a whim for our family. The staff were friendly and the exterior was very clean, as was the pool area. Very relaxing and great for our 3 kids. You can take a nice little walk to Starbucks and even the wharf. Accommodations were comfortable and very clean! They even had ear plugs and a wine opener in the room! I would stay here again!!
Beautiful hotel and it's so close to everything we wanted to do in the area. I would definitely come back and would highly recommend to anyone going to visit the Monterey Bay area. Hotel was clean and the service was good :)
Everyone is super friendly. Hotel was awesome. Location was perfect. Food was great. Will definitely return. We could walk to town from here and had a beautiful morning walk on the wharf and Cannery Row.
We came for a quick weekend trip and this place served us well. Checking in was easy and they provided complimentary wine for each person in our party. The lady at the front desk was friendly and knowledgeable. We utilized the hot tub on the first night and they allowed us to stay in a little past closing time which was nice. They nornally provide towels but they were all out when we went swimming. Also when we got back to our room we needed a couple of bath towels so we called front desk however due to it being after 10pm we had to go get them ourselves. Our room was clean and spacious. It was stocked with complimentary bottled water in the fridge and a keurig with coffee. The beds were clean and reasonably comfortable. The grounds were clean and well maintained however the interior hallways seemed a little dingy and the elevator had an odd smell in it. All in all for the price and cleanliness of the rooms I would definitely stay here again if we come back to visit
