Comfy hotel This hotel is quaint and in close proximity to Ocean Avenue. It is a lovely walk to the beach through the heart of Carmel. It is quiet and the accommodations are cozy and comfortable. They allowed us to stay one night on a holiday weekend, too! Staff is welcoming!

Cute cottages and well kept grounds. This little place is across the street from the ocean. You can hear the waves all night if you leave your window open. Breakfast is a small snack, fruit and coffee or tea. No big deal, but good enough. It is lovely and quiet here... A short walk to the ocean. I'll definitely be back

The rooms were very clean and the beds were ...

Pocket Guide: 2 stars Hotels in Monterey

Find 2 Star Accommodation in Monterey

Looking to get away on a cheap Monterey break? If you're on a budget, Monterey has a huge range of comfortable but affordable two-star hotels that cater to all tastes. Choose from family-friendly accommodation, inns, motels and even winery hotels in a variety of locations. Several of Monterey’s two-star hotels are situated conveniently close to Monterey Regional Airport, while others are near beaches or offer easy access to scenic Highway One.

Getting around Monterey on a Budget

Wherever you're based in Monterey, you can hop aboard the Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST), a cheap, safe and reliable public bus service that stops at major attractions and hotels. The bus also runs a service to Carmel, Pacific Grove and Big Sur, as well as offering a wine route service that stops at popular wineries. Alternatively, hire a car to go further afield.

Free Things to See and Do in Monterey

Make the most of your stay in Monterey by exploring the city's free attractions. Walk or cycle along the scenic 17-Mile Drive at Pebble Beach, where you can soak up amazing ocean views. While cars are charged an entry fee to this exclusive neighbourhood, pedestrians and cyclists are admitted for free. Keep your eyes peeled for the famous Lone Cypress Tree, known as the most photographed tree in North America. You can also enjoy a stroll or a bike ride along the 29-mile long Monterey Bay Recreation Trail, a paved coast-hugging path which runs from Castroville to Pacific Grove. The trail features a whirl of top attractions, including the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf and the Museum of Monterey.

Wildlife lovers should make a beeline for the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, known as the Serengeti of the Sea. It's home to seals, sea lions, sea otters, whales, dolphins and seabirds, all of which can be seen all year-round. Go tide pooling at low tide to spot plant and animal sea life. After soaking up the city's numerous free attractions, blow the budget one day by visiting Monterey's most famous attraction, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which homes a whopping 35,000 creatures in 34 galleries, including everything from exotic sunfish to beefy sharks.
