Pocket Guides: Independent Hotels in Monterey

An Authentic Experience

For a memorable and authentic travel experience, book a room in an independent hotel in Monterey. From historic buildings to luxury boutique hotels, beach-front inns to family-friendly resorts, these properties ooze character and charm. At an independent hotel, you can expect exceptional service, an intimate atmosphere and unique décor. Rooms may be decked out with locally-crafted furniture or antique furnishings, with quirky or period artwork. Such properties are usually competitively priced, so you can enjoy great value for money. If you wish to experience Monterey like a local in a property that feels like a second home, choose to stay in an independent hotel.

Service and Amenities at an Independent Hotel

Many independent hotels offer extra-special add-ons, such as pet-friendly rooms, bicycle hire, afternoon sherry or chocolate-chip cookies at bedtime. They may even host themed dinners or walking tours to make you feel even more welcome.

The joy of staying in an independent hotel is the unique amenities they provide to show off their character. You might find your room has a claw-foot bathtub or fireplace, free bottled water or extra pillows and blankets.

Stay in an Independent Hotel in Monterey

Whether you’re looking for a romantic seaside getaway, an active break close to nature or a wine-tasting adventure, you're guaranteed to find independent accommodation to suit you in Monterey. Scattered throughout the county, independent boutique hotels, inns and lodges can be found in Carmel-by-the-Sea, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Salinas and many other top locations.

Book a room in an independent hotel in Pacific Grove to be within easy reach of Big Sur, Carmel, Point Lobos State Reserve and Pebble Beach, as well as top attractions, such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf.

If you're travelling with a pet in tow, stay in the fairytale village of Carmel, known for its dog-friendliness. Travellers are drawn to this good-looking town for its white-sand beach, upscale boutiques and art galleries. From adventure sport inns to pet-friendly hotels, Carmel is famous for its abundance of independently-owned accommodation.

Stay in the centre of Monterey to be within walking distance of the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf, from where you can arrange whale-watching trips.
