Waves crash against the Monterey Bay’s craggy coastline outside the Cannery Row Inn, where visitors cozy up to flickering fireplaces in spacious rooms located within walking distance of San Carlos Beach. Wanderers can dive beneath the covers of a cozy king-size bed, or move to the bathroom to—like the most resourceful ancient Greeks—build magnificent fortresses using nothing but pillows and complimentary hand towels surrounded by majestic marble and granite accents. Bubbling pots of organic coffee complement the fireplace’s comforting crackle, which casts a gauzy glow over guests admiring Monterey Bay’s roiling whitecaps from a private balcony. Come morning, chefs whip up a breakfast bar consisting of warm and cold dishes such as fresh bread, waffles, and sliced fruit. Vacationers can unwind beneath a satellite TV, surf the Internet on the free WiFi, or surf imaginary waves on their room’s ironing board.
Monterey’s idyllic downtown hosts numerous options for fine dining and entertainment, neighboring such maritime marvels as the illustrious Monterey Bay Aquarium and Old Fisherman’s Wharf, where graying otters can be seen engaging in laid-back bouts of backgammon and competitive tall-tale telling. Visitors may also mosey over to the Monterey Bay Whale Watch, located just a mile from the inn, to glimpse emerging humpback, blue, and gray whales.
