This all-suite sleep fits right into its downtown Monterey location thanks to a Spanish adobe-inflected design. The spacious lobby has a homey vibe, from the terra-cotta tile floors and working fireplace to the cowhide chairs and comfy sofas. Outside, a double height waterfall feature anchors a quiet courtyard that’s perfect for soaking up the year-round Central Cali sunshine. Guestrooms start at a spacious 450 square feet, with hardwood floors, seating areas, gas fireplaces and mini fridges. All bathrooms have both tubs and standalone showers, and each room has a private, furnished patio or balcony (accessed via an outdoor corridor in Standard Junior Suites). There’s no restaurant, but a hearty breakfast spread of pastries, fruit, yogurt and more is served each morning, and there are free afternoon refreshments.
In the Area
For family trips, a stop at the town’s famed aquarium is a must, as is a tour with Princess Monterey Whale Watching for dolphin, orca and humpback whale spotting. Spend an afternoon browsing the shops, galleries and wine-tasting rooms along Cannery Row — some favorites include the Cannery Row Antique Mall and Pierce Ranch Vineyards outpost. For a memorable meal, make a reservation at the wonderfully old-fashioned Sardine Factory and be sure to order the abalone bisque, which was served at President Reagan’s inaugural dinner.
How to Get There
Had a gorgeous suite which was huge with a balcony and they even left us a little present in the room!
The hotel is in a great location close to bars & restaurants.
Only problems were the noise of people above us walking around on the floorboards. And the breakfast area was too small to accommodate everyone and it was a little chaotic, mainly queuing for the toaster.
Great hotel apart from that, wish we could have stayed longer!
Location, location, location! Hotel is a bit expensive for the room itself. Bed isnt that great BUT the fireplace is amazing! Waking up the the sound of seagulls and seals is a flash back to my childhood near the beach. Definitely would stay here again! Right next to downtown, a short trolley ride away from cannery row, and close to the harbor. Worth it!
The room isnt perfect. Trust me the bed isnt the best. However, fireplace is wonderful. The natural sunlight that comes into the room and waking up to the sound of seagulls and seals... worth it. Bathroom is decent. Cannot beat this location. It's a small walk to downtown, a quick trolley ride to cannery row (heck) if you are okay with walking it isnt bad either.. and the harbor is close by too! We loved staying here!
The end our summer vacation was a 3 night getaway to Monterey ! We love staying at Hotel Pacific when we come into town! The rooms are big, and have all that you need ! Fireplace, small refrigerator, plates, silverware, microwave wine glasses, table and chairs. Private patio area with chairs and table to enjoy the weather!
Strange to walk in the room directly from the street. Bit old and dark room. No aircon and no ventilation. Leaving a window open during the night didnt feel safe as it is street level. Spacious room. Old cable tv and a phone that could be over 20 years old. Had to call for someone to fix the bathplug to be able to take a bath. The room was a bit noisy. Especially from the floor above. Wooden old structure. So that was annoying. Had to use earplugs. Good they have a parking garage. Overall okay stay, but way too expensive for what you get.
