Bedecked with modern furnishings, dual queen beds, plush linens, and a picturesque view of the Monterey Bay, Beach Street Inn's ocean-view rooms bathe guests in a synthesis of surf and sun. In-room amenities include cable television, wireless Internet, and a kitchenette equipped with a refrigerator and microwave, creating a comfortable base of operations for wave watchers and sand smugglers. Guests of the inn can observe the aquascape from their attached balcony or patio, hit the beach and its volleyball courts, or drive the ocean wild with jealousy by lavishing the attention on the inn’s heated swimming pool. Grilling enthusiasts can also opt to pal around with water’s nemesis, fire, by stoking steak-searing flames in the barbecue and picnic area. Numerous downtown shops, galleries, theaters, and eateries—all within walking distance—provide adventuresome vacationers with a chance to go on safari for souvenirs and scrapbook-worthy photo ops.
