On Del Monte Avenue, within walking distance of both the beach and downtown
The Inn at Del Monte Beach is located in Monterey, within walking distance of the beach, and just within walking distance of downtown and Fisherman's Wharf. It provides easy access to Highway 1 and Pebble Beach, and is a short drive to Carmel and Pacific Grove.
The 18-room Inn at Del Monte Beach doesn't look like much upon arrival -- located on a busy street between a McDonald's and a tattoo parlor, the hotel appears a bit run-down, and the hodge-podge of vintage furniture in the lobby may take some getting used to. But if you can look past the surface, the hotel has a warm feel with a cozy lobby bar, a delicious free breakfast, and an ocean-view rooftop deck where the free cocktail hour sometimes takes place. All rooms have a slightly differently look (and some are more in need of updates than others) and feature flat-screen TVs and fireplaces.
