My husband and I stayed here overnight during our visit of the California coast. Our room was extremely small and very dated. The air conditioning was very average, but also sounded like an car engine as it turned itself on and off throughout the night. Our biggest disappointment was that we requested a non-smoking room (this was received), however the placement of this room was at the back of the facility with the outside smoking area directly outside our window. This meant people talking outside our room until past midnight and the outdoor light streaming underneath our window blinds. Considering the room cost USD $166 and we only needed it as a place to get a good nights sleep, it was extremely disappointing.
Two positives; the room was clean and in a good location, close to bus stops.
We stopped off for the night on our road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Located just off the highway, the Bayside Inn was a good base to explore the local area from - just under a 10 minute drive to downtown Monterey.
Our room had two large beds and was spacious for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. It was well equipped and basic toiletries were provided. A continental breakfast was served in the reception area with plenty of seating available outside.
Check in and check out was very smooth and staff were helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
