Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by muckuluck one bed very uncomfortable
For the price we paid we were given a room overlooking houses and path with two double beds. One bed had a slope on it and was extremely uncomfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kenneth3 Very enjoyable
With my Ambassador membership, I was being upgraded to the junior suite with ocean view. It was spacious and clean. The bonsai and live orchids were a nice touch. Although the hotel was fully booked, I didn't hear any noise after 10PM. Valet parking was only 1 dollar more than self parking. The bottom-line, I wish I can stay here longer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tosha81 Great service and location
We stayed for 3 nights in September, the weather was great! The staff at the restaurant was fast and courteous, especially Garrett, and the food was wonderful. We were able to watch whales in the bay right from our table. The staff and concierge were great at recommending things to see and local restaurants. We both enjoyed the spa, the couples twilight massage was great! If we come back again we would probably upgrade to an ocean view room. We stayed in a standard room with 2 bed and a fireplace, it had a patio that was close to the recreation trail and a very nice bath. My only complaint was the noise from the parking garage.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mthk My latest stay
Problems with the way IHG markets the rooms caused us to have an argument upon check-in. This should not be held against the hotel necessarily but it mars the whole experience.
The ambiance in the bar was good and the position of the hotel is good, being next to the Aquarium.

We enjoyed our stay here and found the staff very helpful and friendly and the facilities excellent. We also loved the location and felt part of the 'history' of Monterey being at Cannery Row.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wbjsew Fantastic Night in Monterey
My wife and I only had one night to stay in Monterey and we chose the Intercontinental.
From Checkin and throughout the stay we were treated very well. Lucille recommended we dine at The Sardine Factory which was less than 5mins walk away and we loved it.
What further impressed me was that when our car GPS decided to die the next day Lucille assisted me in locating the local car rental office and printed driving directions for me.
One final commendation is if you have time have Cadillac by George give you a personal tour of the local Carmel Vineyards.
We will not forget our stay at the Intercontinental Monterey.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Themalion No baked potato, no potato period and no rice
Room service needs some help. The entire stay, one night was plagued with "we have 2 weddings" and quite frankly, that should not be an excuse for lacking.
Bar area was good, menu good and bar tenders very accommodating. Wanted to cozy up with some room service rather than fight the "weddings" and wanted simple fare. Chef, always have a potato for baking or a bag, box or sack of rice. Simple.
We ended up with plain spaghetti noodles with butter ( not my first preference) and parmesan. Simple and good although not what my tummy needed. Steamed rapini that was good. Side of Mac and Cheese that was good.....all covered in plastic wrap with absolutely no visual appeal. Looked very cafeteria.
Also, no water on the cart. Standard glasses of ice water is what I usually see. I understand the water shortage and maybe that is why. ...
Will stay here again since our kids live in the area now. We need to be sure and check first on the wedding schedule... in hopes of a better overall experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ressi room was great
Out there for a family wedding. We had 20 people from our family. After three nights of ending out night in the lounge the third night the bar manager decided to ask my son who is 19 to leave the area at 11:15 pm. I found this odd as the other nights he was allowed to stay with us till 1pm. My wife had to take him out as we did not want to cause a seen. The next day I reported to the Manager and he said he would go over it with the person. I felt a little brushed off and expected a better response. We spent over 15 grand there between us all on rooms, food and drinks. I free round of drinks or a credit would of been nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BeachGirl22 Lovely Monterey Hotel
The staff was friendly and professional, our room was nice and clean with a view of the ocean, and the location is excellent being right next to the Aquarium. Our room stood just above the hotel deck and restaurant so there was some noise from the people below when the door to outside was open, and we felt the room could have been more private as anyone on that deck could look directly into our room. However, we were very pleased with our stay and would definitely come back!

This was by far the best hotel I have ever stayed at in my whole life. I enjoyed the view especially the cherries jubilee car show. We heard the cars come in that morning and it was awesome! Beds are so comfortable, room service was great. Bell boys were great. The staff was wonderful. The men who got the cars were excellent. Best weekend ever.

Took a quick trip down to Monterey and stayed here for a night. Definitely one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at! We were upgraded to a room with a fireplace, private balcony, and partial ocean view – no complaints here! Room felt very modern and relaxing. Bathroom was very spacious as well with a separate shower and soaking tub. Great location – right on Cannery Row next to the aquarium. Staff was also very professional and friendly. Thanks!

Thank you to Sebastian the manager on duty during the week of Sept. 7 & 8. There was a mix up in our rooms due to a previous emergency and his professionalism and the staffs more than took care of the short term disappointment my wife and I had. We will continue to stay at this incredible hotel! Thank you very much Sebastian for a great weekend, "saved".

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jb647 Great service, very small swimming pool
Staff and service are excellent. Restaurant is very good.
Swimming pool is totally inappropriate for such a hotel and also shower head should be removable so that all parts of the body can be washed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great location
I had a memorable stay at The Clement Monterey. Even though it was a busy weekend (Labor Day) one of the staff members went out of her way to get me a room with a beautiful view, since I was celebrating my retirement with my sons. The location is what you're paying for because it's located on Cannery Row, against the coast, and near the aquarium. It would be great if a free breakfast was offered. All in all, I enjoyed my stay, but I'm not sure that I would stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wmy3732 Perfect stay by the sea.
Location is perfect. I got the room with king size bed and fireplace on the west wing. It was quiet and have about 3 degree of ocean view. Self parking around was impossible on long weekend, so valet parking is the only choise. TV size was a little bit small.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pclark Needs a new mattress and pillows
This hotel is very nice. The facilities are handsome and well maintained. The staff is knowledgable and helpful. However, our room really needed a new matress and they had the most lumpy and uncomfortable pillows ever. I liked the location and the facility, but the bedding needed help!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fit4Life Wish we could have stayed longer!
Recently stayed only one night at this beautiful hotel right on Monterey Bay. Knowledgeable, helpful gentlemen checked us in early (room was ready), recommended a place to have a drink and snacks in the bar downstairs where we could wait for our friends. Same gentleman checked us out the next day and remembered my name (great touch!). Our room was on the 4th floor directly overlooking the water, fireplace, coffee maker, robes in room - loved it. Spacious bathroom with nice toiletries and linens/towels. Hotel was clean and updated. We did not have dinner but the appetizers and drinks in the outside bar were very good. No question we would stay here again if we went back to Monterey!

Facility is beautiful. Secure parking available and convenient.
Safe to walk and shop at night, with gift shops, restaurants and grocery store nearby.
Hotel's C Restaurant is excellent and highly recommended.
Thank you for another excellent stay!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BucketAustin Clement - Not so good this time
Stayed 2 nights Aug 25-27, 2013. We were banished to the part of the hotel across the street, without a room upgrade that I am aware of, even though I am an Ambassador. I don't know if it was an upgrade or not, which is supposed to be guaranteed, because the front desk person didn't recognize me as an Ambassador, nor was the normal gift supplied until I called about it. The whole reason to join the Ambassador program is for the benefits - why else would I join? Loyalty works both ways - I stay at IHG vs other brands, you offer certain benefits in return. I had just come from the Mark Hopkins and they did a great job - the Clement should take lessons from them. The room overlooked the street with a view of all of the garbage cans in the morning. Otherwise the room was fine. The rest of the staff was OK. I would stay again, but would look at other options as well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Elona End of Summer Vacation
I love the ICH properties and this is no exception. The propoerty is always in a great location. The front desk staff was wonderful, knowledgegable and extrememly helpful on all fronts. Jaeson and Brittany, and Sean (Bell Hop) deserve speckail acknowledgement for their helpfulness.
Howsekeeping, on the other hand, was severly lacking and quite disappointing. The experience including yellowed out blankets with shredded holes in several places, and a complete and utter failure to take out the garbage which was overflowing with wrappers from food from the day before. Lots of room for improvement here.
Similarly, 3 requests to speak with the hotel manager - Mr. Turner, and the provision of a wrong email address for his assistant manager proved irksome. One week later, I have yet to hear from Mr. Turner, who must be too busy to speak to guests even after 3 requests.
Although we did get a small courtesy credit - the experience was -- ummmm ----mediocre at best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PDWJ Beautiful setting, great rooms, good service.
We had two rooms booked. One was upgraded to a suite that was available at check-in. One room was ready by 4pm but the other failed to be ready until 5pm. The hotel gave us $100 breakfast credit for making us wait which was very kind.
The rooms were spacious, clean, and luxurious with fireplaces and separate shower and baths. Large bathrooms!
We were not able to swim because the pool was just a lap pool and occupied by one adult at a time.
Location is very scenic we had ocean views! Lobby area is nice. Free internet with platinum elite status saving $$$. Recommend street parking (3 blocks away) which was very free. We enjoyed our stay and would come again. The Aquarium is great, though we skipped it this time since we had been members and gone alot in the past. It is steps from the hotel (like 10 seconds walk).

The hotel location is perfect, right on the coast and with fabulous views across the bay.
Checking-in was efficient and the receptionist provided lots of useful local information. The room was lovely with a side view of the ocean, a small veranda and a huge, modern bathroom. The furnishings were neutral and matched the ocean location perfectly. There was plenty of room for the family and my youngest daughter loved the sand tray.
There is a lovely outdoor area with comfy settees and heaters where we sat out to have drinks and nibbles. The happy hour is great with half price drinks and snacks including a champagne flight which was lovely.
Loved this hotel and will definitely return for longer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WayfarerMom Great Stay Again at the Intercontinental
I enjoyed a great stay with my two boys (age 12 and 16) and commend the staff for terrific, courteous and prompt service. We enjoyed an ocean front luxury suite, watching the otters and seals frolic and falling asleep to the waves crashing right beneath our balcony. The room size and amenities were great for the boys; separate bathrooms and TV's, lots of room, binoculars and extras like the cozy slippers and robes were appreciated. We enjoyed brunch and the outdoor firepits, too.
My first stay last fall was for an adult getaway and the experience was also tremendous so I did not hesitate to book for a family trip. Our main focus was the aquarium, and although there are some decent restaurants in Pacific Grove, Monteray is more for the ocean experience (although the wine tasting room overlooking the bay is nice ). The oversize tub is heavenly, two fireplaces and the sweeping ocean views make for a lovely ambience. Real orchids and the Bonsai tree make for a nice touch as well.
I would absolutely recommend the Clement for a family or adult getaway.
