Looking for Monterey Hotel/Itinerary Advice

Jump to last reply

I'm heading to Monterey at the end of March for a work conference. However, before the conference starts, I've got Saturday afternoon/evening and Sunday to myself.

I'm looking for hotel suggestions for Saturday night that are within a safe walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf - as I'll be by myself and plan to stay out a bit on Saturday night. The only catch is that I'm on a budget and can only afford up to $125 or so for a room. I'd prefer a place that has free parking and continental breakfast. Free wi-fi would be a plus. Really, I just need a place to sleep. After that I'll be checking into the Portola for the conference.

Also, if anyone has suggestions for things to do during my short weekend trip that would be great. I'm planning to go straight from the airport to the aquarium on Saturday (do they have free parking?) After that I was thinking about doing the Ghost Tour in downtown. Then I'd like to drive down to Big Sur on Sunday morning for the Pt. Sur lighthouse tour. After that I was thinking about wandering around the area for a bit then heading back up to Monterey to really check out the area. I also have Tuesday evening after the conference to myself for dinner.

It sounds like the 17 Mile Drive isn't a must-see if you're already driving down the coast to Big Sur. If anyone has suggestions for additional things to see/do/eat in the area, or comments on the things I mentioned, I more than welcome them! I'm more interested in seeing the sights/learning history than spending money, so fancy restaurants, shopping and the like are out. But if I've got time I'm not opposed to a hike or a bike ride - so long as they're safe to do on my own!

Thanks!
