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.

Sunday 19th July
Last night there was a thunderstorm with heavy rain, the first for years according to the hotel staff but they assured us it would clear up soon. We drove into Monterey and explored the Marina and Fisherman`s Wharf which are a lot less busy than the previous night. We check out some possible sea food restaurants for later on and do some shopping. (Mainly pirate themed purchases for Gill`s Wightwick ...
... a cool group photo on the boat before saying our goodbyes and heading back to camp. We decided that evening to continue the special by having something special to eat for dinner so went to the fishmongers and got a dozen tiger prawns for me and a nice piece of fish for Tara. That evening I did a lemon garlic butter sauce and we enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine under the stars talking about the day we had experienced. We actually didn't have the best night sleep that night and ...
... museum. We decided to take the street car; it would have been faster to walk! We learned on this trip that mass transit may be easy, but it’s not fast! At the Exploritorium, there were several hands-on experiments we saw that we liked; we took pictures of some of them. The only thing I didn’t like about the Exploritorium was we didn’t allow enough time to see it properly.
We finally left SF about 4:30, driving south along California ...
... looking for. We parked our rear ends on the patio overlooking the 18th hole and the grand stands (the AT&T Pro Am is next weekend - for all I know, that could be the wrong name, all I know is there were grand stands in the way of my ocean view - humph!) Curtis ordered a Stella, I enjoyed some ice water, and we split an appy (duck fat potatoes - ya, your mouth just filled with saliva, didn’t it? Also, does that sound very ‘casual dining’ to you?) ...
Today we drove from Atascadero to Monterey along the Pacific Coast Highway. We stopped just north of San Simeon to see the elephant seals which were shrouded in fog. Then we stopped at Ragged Point to see the views. On the way out to the point you couldn't see the ocean but in the short time it took to return the fog had mostly cleared. Next we made our way to Big Sur for lunch at Nepenthe. The weather was perfect and we sat outside ...
