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
Room was fine with good facilities and very clean. The only issue we had is that we were in a building away from the main building which felt a little isolated it was also quite small. Overall though we were pleased.
I stayed at Hotel Abrego for business - photographing a wedding nearby - and the hotel was a great value. I arrived about an hour early before normal check-in and asked if I could check-in early. There weren't any available rooms for early check-in but the staff was very friendly at checking my last minute request for me and they had me get ahead of paperwork I had to fill out so that all I had to do was pick up my key when I returned for normal check-in time. The room was clean and comfortable and the location of the hotel is close to shops and restaurants. I highly recommend staying here =)
There is no air conditioner in my room. They offered a fan instead. Maybe this is a thing on the West coast but most people who stay here are not from here. It's outrageous that I should have to make sure my room has AC. 'No AC' should be advertised.
We booked this hotel because of the trip adviser reviews. Don’t believe them all. When we first arrived there were 50 motorbikes in the car park. All Harley’s. A bonus is that the car parking is free.
This hotel is a main building and 3 motel style blocks. We stayed in block 2. The room was a good size no. 2305. Had a smell at first so we opened the window, unpacked and walked into town. Took 20 minutes to get to the water front.
One road in Monterey has bars and restaurants. We had a good meal at Scales on the pier.
Our hotel is not close to the action and is across a very busy road. It is not just beyond the bars it is a hike.
The main problem with this hotel is the noise from the other rooms. Ours is sometimes a shared family room so we could hear every noise from next door, including phone calls at 6.00am.
Also the room is hot, no air conditioning. The answer is to open the window all night. That creates another problem, the road noise is loud and even worse you can hear the sizzle, spit, hiss of the electricity cables from the pavement that goes on 24 hours per day.
Eventually I wet a towel and slept with that on top of me. Never in my life will I visit this hotel again. Do yourself a favour and do not book this place, unless you like motel style hot rooms with lots of noise.
At 3.00am the pool is still lit up, so I had something to look at during the night whilst sitting on the balcony trying to cool down. The electricity cables fizzed and I could count every vehicle revving it’s engines climbing the hill out side the motel / hotel.
One revue said the staff were great. I said hello when I booked in and goodbye when I left. So cannot comment.
Worst 2 nights on a 3 week raid trip at Hotel Abrego. Just arrived at Weston Verasa in Napa Valley - fabulous.
This hotel looks just okay from the exterior, but the rooms are beautiful--extremely modern, clean and spacious. I felt very comfortable here. The walk to Fisherman's Wharf was fine when the weather is nice, but it is about a 10-15 minute walk.
