TravelPod Member ReviewsAmericas Best Value Stage Coach Lodge Monterey
Although very basic, Stage Coach Lodge is a perfect place to stay a night or two as you explore the Monterey area. Nice and comfortable beds, ok bathroom, a small in-room safe, and courtyard parking - this covers your basic needs. The lodge is a 20 minute walk from Fisherman's Warf which is a better bet for decent food than Cannery Row.

They were super loud and smelt real bad but fun to watch (2 were fighting and knocking each other into the water) Left the seals and just decided to walk around Pier 39, tourist shops galore! We were stopped by a guy who was trying to take a ...
... I've seen enough aquariums now!
Walked back to the hotel down Cannery Way - used to be all canneries, but has now become upmarket eating etc.
Fish & Chip dinner near the wharf - sea lions jostling for position, some even jumping onto small boats in the area.
... various murderers and psychopaths who trod the same corridors 50 years earlier. We are fortunate to have done some travelling before this trip, and one inevitably makes comparisons with other places. San Francisco, to us, was a unique hybrid of, in no particular order: Istanbul (hills), Barcelona (hills and edgy, rich culture), Cape Town (seaside wharfs, island prison), NYC (skyscrapers/bridges/water juxtaposition), Sydney (CBD skyline, parks, smells, attractive ...
