Nice location

The rooms are very large and somewhat updated but could use a makeover. The location is very close to Fisherman's Wharf. $20 per night for parking didn't make me happy.

Enjoyed the stay, although a little pricey. Rooms need a little attention and charging $20.00 per day for parking is not good.

This hotel is awesome! Loved the fireplace and the television that swivels from living room to bedroom. Only downside was no air conditioning. Will definitely be back for another visit.

Lovely little hotel in the downtown/old town area

The hotel is right on the edge of the downtown area and surrounded by early settler homes. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds. The balcony had wonderful views and we ate our complimentary breakfast there every morning. We would stay here again if we go back to Monterey.

Great value, comfortable bed, but very noisy

Nice suite with a very comfortable bed, gas fireplace, separate bathtub and shower, and large LCD TV. The only major problem was being woken up in the early morning by loud noises from outside the room and other floors.

Fantastic Location in Monterey

We had such a wonderful time at the Hotel Pacific. We appreciated how convenient it was to walk to Fisherman's Wharf, the Aquarium, restaurants and Cannery Row. The continental breakfast included fresh fruit in addition to breads, cereals, coffee and juice. Pleasant, friendly and helpful staff. We would stay here again!

Dingy, Dirty & Dated

I am a business owner (having once partnered in a hotel and event complex venture) and understand the impact of a bad review. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this hotel and am in a quandary how The Hotel Pacific has received so many favorable reviews. While the staff was friendly, this did not make up for the overall condition of this hotel. We entered the hotel via the underground parking garage. My first impression was not good but I thought, “hey, it’s a garage…garages can be sooty. Check in was easy and the gentlemen expeditiously handled a reservation mix up with our companions. Next stop was to the elevator and stairs from the garage. Again, sooty, grungy, dirty and dated. As we walked to our room, looking over the courtyard, I observed the disarray of furniture, an exposed damaged banquet table and green water in the fountains. I wasn’t feeling optimistic as I saw the screaming need for repairs; a thorough power washing and paint job is desperately needed all over this hotel. Finally, we reached the room. The rooms are spacious and the fireplace is a nice touch but the room(s) are in serious need of updating. The carpeting was filthy and stained. The loveseat and porch furniture should be burned. I found myself sitting on the fireplace ledge for fear of what lurked in & on the upholstered furniture. With that said, I could see that the housekeeping staff tried to do a good job keeping the room clean in spite of the conditions of the accommodations. Housekeeping also made certain that we had plenty of towels (albeit white sandpaper), offered turn down service and did an amazing job washing our own wine glasses. This hotel does not have air conditioning. Upon entry, the room seemed stuffy. My husband called down to the front desk to inform the hotel that the air con did not seem to be working only to be told that the hotel does not have air-conditioning! Seriously, no air conditioning. Relaxing was a challenge and was made even more difficult due to our room being located on a very busy and loud street. We could not keep our windows or porch doors open due to the noise level. We would not have stayed at this hotel and wanted to leave immediately if it had not been that our companions had selected The Hotel Pacific. Additionally, the little fees can add up. One surprise was the $20 per day parking fee – for parking under the hotel’s own property. The price point for this hotel is not in line with its offerings and conditions. There are too many other hotels in Monterey that are better value.

Close but no cigar...

This hotel has all the makings of a great hotel. Good location, renovated rooms and the comforts of a home but......it's noisy! We LOVED the recently renovated room! It looks and feels like a home with a fireplace, spacious open plan, love seat, seats, plush bathroom, 2 showers, plush king sized bed and flat screen TV. Unfortunately, we were woken at 6am by the guests walking around on the the hard wood floors in the room above us! It was awful! You could hear every sound they made! I mentioned this to the staff when checking out and they agreed that they have received this complaint from other guests. They suggested to ask for a floor on the top floor to avoid this. The other downfall....parking was a steep $20/night! With the money we saved, we lost it with the $20 in parking. Too bad the rooms are great but we would not stay there again due to the parking and noise level.

We were on our honeymoon and mentioned this at check-in. The front desk attendant upgraded us to a courtyard view room.
