US Open 2019: Best places to stay

Posted on March 26, 2019 by Jimmy Hartill

The US Open is just eight weeks away and golfing fanatics will be eagerly anticipating the second major of the year, which promises to be as thrilling as ever. Brooks Koepka is looking to add a third consecutive victory at Pebble Beach; something which hasn’t been achieved since Willie Anderson in 1905.

The American is priced at 18/1 to make it a hat-trick of victories at the golf US Open 2019, and those closely attached to the West Palm Beach native will be watching with keen interest to see if he can pull it off. The rest of the expectant crowd will be watching with intent but for those travelling from afar, where’s the best places to stay near Pebble Beach?

 Monterey Marriott

The Monterey Marriot has been a go-to stop for golfing fans for years now and it’s easy to see why. Located just 5.7 miles from Pebble Beach, the Marriot is perfectly placed for fans travelling to the US Open and offers a variety of different rooms and services. Prices do increase around the time of the Open, but you can expect to pay between £180 and £300 per night, and this includes everything you’d come to expect: free WiFi, room service, restaurant/bar and use of the swimming pool.

Carmel Country Inn

If location is your number one priority then the Carmel Country Inn could be the perfect place for you. Although technically a bed and breakfast, the Carmel offers luxurious rooms and is located just 2.7 miles from Pebble Beach. As you’d come to expect, free breakfast (breakfast buffet, in fact), free WiFi and free car parking are all included and the Carmel is also pet friendly, so bring your dog along for the action! If you really fancy splashing out, the Carmel offers rooms with Jacuzzi tubs and special inn rooms that offer more spacious suites than the standard rooms.

La Playa Carmel

If you’ve ever stayed in California before, the chances are you would have heard of La Playa Carmel. The historic luxury boutique hotel was recently voted the ‘Best hotel on the Monterey Peninsula’ so that in itself should convince you to try it out. Boasting 75 rooms and just yards from Carmel beach, La Playa has been a hit with golfing fans and it’s easy to see why. It’s less than three miles from Pebble Beach and offers plenty of garden space, secluded courtyards and a terraced swimming pool to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa

Perfectly situated overlooking the bay, the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa is another go-to destination for golf fans and there’s plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas. The rooms on offer vary somewhat from partial inland view rooms to partial ocean view rooms, and guests can expect a whole range of features and benefits from staying at the Monterey. A bit different from a standard hotel or retreat, the Monterey prides itself in accommodating itself for its guests and you must take full advantage of the spa and massage facilities, before the short trip to Pebble Beach to watch the action.
