We know that coming to Monterey can get a lil costly. So If your on a budget, coming to Monterey and just want a place to lay your head down for some sleep you may want to check out the hotels found on Munras Ave and Fremont Street. Munras Avenue as you go east turns into Fremont Street. These streets are a short cab ride from our venue and are where you find hotels such as Motel 6, Comfort Inn, Days Inn, Econo Lodge, Super 8 pretty much all the major chain hotels are there and most of these hotels range about $80-150 a night. We can’t give you a yeah or nay on them as we haven’t stayed at them but feel free to use Yelp or Trip Advisor.
This is the hotel that we stayed at in February 2015 when we got engaged and will be the same hotel that we are staying at for our wedding.
Conveniently located on Cannery Row with just a 5 minute walk to the ever so popular Monterey Bay Aquarium.
We highly recommend use of a cab to avoid A DUI if you plan on drinking at the wedding since Spindrift is 1.5 miles away from our Venue.

We have not stayed at Portola Hotel and Spa yet, but we have enjoyed their Sunday brunch twice. Any place that isn’t shy with the champagne in their Mimosas is alright with us. It’s very convenient as it’s only 2-3 blocks away from the venue. This allows you to keep your car there with a short 5-10 min walk to our Wedding venue to prevent having to pay more parking fee’s and not having to drink and drive. Fisherman’s Wharf is also across the lot from our venue as well.
