You cannot beat the location. Centrally located in the heart of Monterey, history surrounds the hotel. The beauty of the Peninsula isn’t just breathtaking views, it’s learning about the people who have lived there. It has always been a hangout for artists, writers and artists in music and film. The hotel has been restored. I remember when it was a flop house and the entrance door had homeless wanderers sleeping. Even prior to the limitations imposed during COVID, the service and the amenities have always been basic. If you are looking for a clean place to shower and sleep then you are home. A little service training might help the staff to better understand what service is and isn’t. All said though, the Monterey Hotel is a very good choice if you are on business or simply looking to get away and relax.
