Pleasantly surprised by this quaint hotel. Our room was very clean and comfy. Surprisingly we could see the ocean from our room. Location is close enough to walk downtown, to the wharf and even cannery row. Parking in Monterey can be challenging so walking is a nice option. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very reasonable rates which included wi-fi...

It is located within a walking distance from the centre and to the mall. The room was quite large and attractive with a modern bathroom. It was clean and cosy. The staff went out of the way to help. It is great is you have a car.

Very clean and walking distance to amenities. A bit far from main Monterey area... About 30 minutes walk to aquarium and sights. The room was clean and staff friendly. Not many amenities nor anything special. But it's tastefully decorated and feels perfectly fine. Low maintenance rental with comfortable place to sleep and rest on the coastal drive from San Fran...

Great location within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf, Farmer's Market, and Cannery Row. Cannery Row was a bit of a hike, but we needed the walk after all the meals out! Excellent value for the area. We were happy that we chose to stay there over the Carmel area. We had a queen bed with a twin for our college...

We loved the spacious room which was clean and the wifi fast and free. The Inn was close to the beach and fisherman's wharf and we loved the 17 mile drive in Pebble Beach. There were wonderful otters and seals galore!

This place is one of the best hotels I've stayed at. Rooms were very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The lady at reception was amazing!!! We called up from the visitors centre and she said she would have a room ready for us to check in straight away which was before check in time. She also gave us great advice...

In a good location it is easy to visit carmel and Monterrey. The bed was very big and confortable. The breackfast wasn't special, but ok. The staff was friendly and helped us with some maps and tips about the big sur and the beatiful 17mile drive.

Our room was spacious and included a small table and 2 chairs. We had a peek - a - boo view of the Pacific and our room overlooked a yard with pretty landscaping. We were happy to have a small refrigerator in our room. Flower boxes and good parking completed a great stay!
