Hotel at a Glance: Monterey Tides

You’re just steps from the Pacific Ocean at the Monterey Tides, a setting perfect for swimming, walking along the beach, or just listening to the soothing sounds of crashing waves. After dropping your luggage off, you can head right down to the sands or lounge in the hotel’s oceanfront courtyard.

  • Inspired by the ocean: Guest rooms include a color palette with shades of blue and patterned carpet reminiscent of waves. Each room comes with HD TVs & WiFi.
  • Eat local at the waterfront Tides Waterfront Kitchen, where the menu features wines and fresh seafood from the area, or sip craft cocktails and share tapas at Bayside Bar + Lounge.
  • Go for a swim in the outdoor pool; it’s open all year and heated.
  • Oceanfront decks with lounge chairs overlooking the sea
  • Private beach: Enjoy bonfires and s’mores with exclusive beach access.

Monterey, California: Scenic Beaches and Marine Wildlife on the Pacific Coast

The city of Monterey is at Monterey Bay’s southern end, in an area considered one of the world’s most scenic thanks to its rugged cliffs and dramatic ocean views. Author John Steinbeck lived for several years in the neighboring town of Pacific Grove, and he immortalized this part of central California in works such as East of Eden and Of Mice and Men. In Cannery Row, Steinbeck depicted the Monterey fish-canning industry at the turn of the 20th century. Today, a tourist destination of the same name houses souvenir shops and eateries right where the sardine factories used to be.

Among the city’s must-see attractions is the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Its mesmerizing displays include a living kelp forest filled with leopard sharks and wolf eels. For those who want to get closer to the sea, there’s the oceanfront Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail, where sea lions sunbathe on the rocks and otters play in the surf. A variety of whales pass by the shores of Monterey all year; visitors might also spot a few dolphins from aboard one of the popular harbor cruises.

Bottom floor, super noisy, lights were hard to get on, room was not impressive. However the view was beautiful. Maybe if I booked a top floor room through Expedia instead of Groupon......
