Pet-Friendly Trip to Monterey

Enjoy Pet-Friendly Activities During Your Stay!

One of our favorite amenities at Moonstone Hotel Properties is that we are pet-friendly! This week we are featuring our pet-approved property, The Monterey Hotel, located in the heart of Monterey. 


As you may know, there is so much to see and do in Monterey. The Monterey Hotel is conveniently located near several local attractions for you and your pup to explore! We know it takes a lot to prepare for your trip with your furry friend, so here are our favorite pet-friendly activities we think you should enjoy:


  1. Monterey State Beach - You can enjoy a nice walk along the beach and catch a beautiful California sunset with your dog! Monterey State Beach allows dogs on a leash from south of the Roberts parking lot. However, dogs are not allowed on the north side of the beach, so make sure to pay attention to signage. If you’d like to learn more about hours and COVID-19 protocol, please visit their website.

  2. Mission Trail Park - Some call this park a hidden gem of Carmel! Get outside and treat your pal to a tranquil walk while maintaining social distancing between others. 

  3. Galante Vineyards - A short drive from The Monterey Hotel, you can enjoy wine tasting with your furry friend! They are well known for their Cabernet Sauvignon so you’ll want to give it a try. Don’t forget to purchase a bottle to bring back to your room!

  4. Rocky Point Restaurant - After a day of exploring Monterey, take in breathtaking views while enjoying delicious food. Rocky Point has a pet-friendly patio that offers a stunning view of the ocean. Make sure you visit their website or call ahead to check in with their current COVID-19 regulations.


We hope you’re able to enjoy a getaway to Monterey with your furry friend! As always, the front desk is happy to provide suggestions on what to see and do during your visit.
