    It was good but upon getting there I was denied a room upgrade while a woman next to me who had checked out already came back. The guy at the front who was helping me stopped helping me to assist the woman and give her an upgraded room without even asking. She was given a beach view room. I was willing to pay extra but was not given the chance. Very sad but the stay was ok. Next time some equality would be nice.

    Perfect location

    Loved this hotel and will definitely book here again (although they said they're raising their rates for dogs). Right on the beach, which made our dog so happy. Also on the pedestrian/bike path that runs through Monterey -- super for walks.

    Great location, hard on older dogs

    It appeared that the place was undergoing some maintenance in the elevator areas, but no signage or alternative was given...some people tried the elevator for hours on end, to no avail. The hotel itself overall was nice and maintained well enough. It's right on the beach with waves crashing so close you could hear nothing else! It was fantastic and the oceanfront room was worth the upgrade.

    The issue with the elevators was that they were not working, despite staff saying they were. No effort or workarounds were given to let guests know, and the stairs are not clearly marked. The stairs were somewhat out of the way and difficult to traverse for our senior dogs. They were slick, narrow, and steep, especially for those guests on the fourth floor making the hike with dogs. Pets could easily fall through the openings in the concrete stairs all the way down if not monitored.

    There were no clearly marked signs for dog use areas or potty spots, or trash cans to dispose waste in...be aware that you'll be hiking up and down the stairs for each potty trip to the parking lot. You have to hunt to find sand or a bush...so overall, the hotel grounds were pretty scarce on dog amenities. At least they allowed us to stay. None of the other guests seemed to mind vacationing amongst us dog people. A fantastic location for the responsible dog owner. If you are one of the lazy or inattentive kind, this place may not be for you.

    Was fantastic!

    Enjoyed the proximity to the dog friendly beach, the ability to bring our dog in and out of the hotel with ease.

    Super dog friendly

    Right on the beach and the most dog friendly hotel we've ever stayed in!🐶

    An experience we will definitely repeat.

    It’s difficult traveling with a calm, well-behaved 70# dog because everywhere wants to put a 50# limit for some reason, but they were very kind and welcoming of our good boy. A dog friendly beach (Monterey State Beach) is literally right outside so it was incredibly easy to go throw a frisbee as often as we wished. Monterey in general has been one of the most dog-friendly places we’ve gone.

    Much needed relief from desert heat

    We read the reviews before selecting this property and knew going in it was an aged property. Regardless, it was clean. Met the manager Tyler who was very nice and has good plans for upgrades. WOW! The view from our room was superb, and the surf sounds made me sleep like a baby! The food at the restaurant was very good, the maid service was very good and everywhere we turned, we were greeted by the nicest guests with their lovely dogs. Dogs are allowed on the beach! Nice dog relief area. Highly recommend this property if traveling with dogs. The only thing I wished for was a private balcony. The property has 4 stories and wrap around walk ways externally. The manager said we were welcome to put two chairs outside our room and create our balcony.

    Great location

    This property has a great location on the beach, but that's where the greatness ends. The rooms are very small and painted very dark colors, which doesn't help. Also, the paint job was awful, paint all over the tile in the bathroom. For the prices they charge, I would have expected better accommodations. I gave it 3 bones solely because of the location.

    Cheerful service and a room with an ocean

    The Monterey Tides Resort sets a new standard in “Dog Friendly” accommodations. Note that there is a State Beach at one end of the resort beach where dogs are not allowed. If you don’t see the line in the sand then you will be kindly informed by a friendly park ranger that you have strayed into park property. Monterey Tides Resort is well worth booking a trip.

    Great location, out the door on the beach

    5 stars for location, 3 stars for room. Room was small and dated but it was only for sleeping. Friendly staff and definitely pet friendly.

    Okay place

    This felt like more of a motel than a hotel. The room was very small and the photos are misleading. The beach view was over a public walkway, so you couldn’t enjoy the view without exposing your room full view of all other guests passing by. Other reviewers have described it as being in a dish bowl and that is accurate. However, the beach in front of it was dog friendly, there was a pet relief area in the parking lot, and a really great dog park less than 10 minutes away.

    Great views!

    The hotel has the ideal view of the ocean which is what you're really booking for! The hotel staff was friendly and helpful!

    As for the hotel itself it can be be updated but expected that.

    This Motel has a great location on the beach but that is all

    This Motel is really run down. On top of the High room rates you have to pay $30 to park at this Motel there is no coffee in the rooms they charged 4:50 one small cup of coffee which I feel is ridiculous. The only bonus is you can have a bonfire on the beach. I will not be back.

    Good, clean place to rest and rejuvenate, right on dog-friendly beach. Hotel is close to Monterey wharf and Row

    You’re paying for the location

    The hotel rooms are in desperate need of being updated. Our key cards never worked right, it was hard to open and close our door because it was so old. Things in the room were falling apart. There are no balconies, so even though the view is fantastic, you just have to see it from your window with people walking by all the time.
    The staff were very friendly. The location is amazing. I just wish that I had known that the rooms were in such poor condition and there were no balconies.
    Also, if you’re traveling now, the pool is closed, there are no s’mores kits and all of the sitting areas outside are taped off with caution tape.

    Happy Dog, Happy Moms

    We had such a lovely time at The Tides and in Monterey/Carmel in general. Lots of play time on the beach right outside our door, and every evening we took our dog up to Happy Hour and watched the sun set on the Pacific. Love this place.

    Awesome location

    Monterey Tides was terrific. The staff were awesome, the beach was outstanding, and the atmosphere was 100% vacation feel. People walking and sitting on the beach, kids playing, fire pits at night and incredible sunsets. Nice lounge area for the adults and a pool if people don’t like the sand or the ocean. Rooms are older but clean and updated. There are smaller grates under the windows that open so you can let fresh air in at night and hear the waves. We would definitely stay here again.

    Kind to Humans and Pups

    Staying for three nights, and the people couldn’t be more thoughtful or accommodating. The rooms are super clean, and when we forgot dog dishes, room service was amazing to bring them right down. Dogs aren’t just welcome, they are treated as guests. The views are stunning and there are many gorgeous walks to take. Best hotel experience with our dog ever.
