Beautiful Hotel with Amazing Service!
Reviewed 13 hours ago

Pros: The service was amazing, the room and hotel were very clean, and the restaurant was delicious. The private little alcove beach was perfect and the ocean views are spectacular!

Cons: The only thing that would have made the stay a little better is the availability of children's entertainment in the room. We were traveling with a 4 year old, and the room offered no children's channels. We would have had to pay $14.99 per day for any cartoons for her to watch so that was very disappointing.

Overall, we would highly recommend this hotel and will always stay here when in Monterey!

Our stay in Monterey
Reviewed 13 hours ago

My wife and I were in Monterey to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I had booked an ocean-facing king with balcony. The room was marvelous with a spectacular view of the bay. The staff was courteous and took very good care of us - check-in, concierge, valet, bellman and housekeeping. A wonderful experience.

Best hotel to see wildlife in Monterey Bay
Reviewed 14 hours ago

What a wonderful place this is!! Get a room over the water and see all kinds of ocean animals. Laying in bed one night watching movies with the kids, we heard whales!! Plus they give you binoculars to look out the window with. Kids enjoyed this for hours!! Spa is nice as well. A nice walk to the Acquarium and restaurants both days made for a wonderful visit. Will be back again and soon!

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Monterey Bay Plaza to celebrate our anniversary.The online pictures and descriptions do not do this resort hotel justice. It is absolutely breathtaking!The customer service is impressive. Laura helped us with our reservation and was so kind and made sure we had a room that met our needs.Our stay began with a warm greeting at check in. Myrna and Brandon set the tone of our entire visit by making us feel welcome at the start. Myrna was such a blessing. She not only checked us in, she made us feel like honored guests and shared all of the wonderful ammenities the hotel had to offer. Our room was spectacular! The mattress was firm yet pillow topped for comfort. We both slept like babies. The grounds are so beautiful and the fine dining at Schooner's Coastal Kitchen are an experience in itself. You don't even have to leave the property to enjoy yourself. The spectacular ocean views and decor set this resort above any another in Monterey! We will definitely return to this magnificent resort hotel.
