My girlfriend and I stayed at the Monte Verde Inn for this year's MotoGP races at Laguna Seca and will be hard pressed to choose a different place to stay next year.

My husband and I planned a romantic long weekend away to San Francisco and Carmel-by-the-sea in August 2011. We selected this location off the charming look of the bed spread believing the rooms would match up to that. Unfortunately when we went into the room the bed was about the only thing charming. The bathroom was run down and there... More

Whlle participating in the Pebble Beach Car Week events, the Monte Verde was the perfect location to take it all in. The personal attention was most appreciated. The managers, Doug and Kristina were terrific. Doug even saved me a parking spot for my collector car. The breakfast basket of goodies was a welcome surprise!

Overall, we were disappointed in our stay the Monte Verde Inn. The room we were in was right in the front of the property. We thought it might be noisy from the street, but actually, it was noisy from the rooms around us. We could hear TV noise from other rooms until after midnight. PROS: The wine, cheese, and music...

The Monte Verde Inn is an old building (built in the 1920's), and the building's age shows. The furnishings are rustically simple. But the welcome was warm, and the location is ideal.
