Monterey Institute of International Studies
Where should I plan to stay while conducting my housing search?

We suggest that you make hotel, motel or youth hostel reservations for up to five nights after your arrival, as the majority of students typically find housing within five to seven days. Because Monterey is a tourist destination, motels and hotels are generally more expensive on Friday and Saturday nights, so we recommend that you arrive as early in the week as possible. The Student Affairs Office can provide you with information on local accommodations that are more reasonably priced.
