I looked a lot of options here and certainly, Monterey can be expensive. The location of the inn is perfect. Walking distance to Cannery Row/Aquarium as well as the waterfront trail, Lovers Point and all the restaurants in Pacific Grove as well. The inn is in a quiet spot, which is important, but it's also got lots of character. I...

Thank you for your review. We try hard to provide value for our guests and of course we also think we are "worth it."

We stayed at the Martine Inn for an overnight with my husband's parents, in one oceanview room and one-non. Depending on how much you want to splurge, the oceanview rooms are really incredible, though we didn't see a bad room in the Inn and had a great night in the non-oceanview (great big windows in both and could hear the...

During a time in which we fight traffic on socalled freeways every day, we relish the fact that the Martine Inn is located so centrally to the things that you want to do that you can leave your car in our parking lot and walk to almost everything.

What a great experience! The Martine Inn is locally owned for 30+ years and we met the owner who showed us his awesome MG classic cars (and racecars!) The staff was very friendly, the room was comfy and had a great view of the bay! The breakfast was great with excellent service! The only 'issue' I guess as the humming...

The Martine Inn has a location in Pacific Grove right on the ocean with beautiful views of the ocean from the Inn dining room . It is also right across the street from a walking trail that goes for several miles with a paved side for bikes and 4 wheeled trolley bikes and a sand side for walkers. There are...

Thank you for your continued staying at the Martine Inn. I am just as involved today, maybe more so, than prior years, even as we begin our 32nd year. We are always looking for ways to improve the inn. Fortunately the location could not be better. .

The decor, the rooms, the food and of course the view were all perfect. We stayed two nights and loved every minute. The bed and the room were very comfortable. The breakfast and extensive hors d'oeuvres each afternoon were wonderful. We would definitely come back. Wish we could have stayed a few more days.

It's hard to beat the location. We could walk to lover's point, cannery row and downtown Pacific Grove. The view from the dining room was spectacular. Mesmerizing. We stayed for 5 nights so we took a more modest room. I wonder on the dates of the reviews often cited. Antiques are something special but they have to be cared for....

I apologize for the issues you encountered during your stay. We can not determine exactly what room you were inn so I did an inspection of the inn and found a chair that had torn upholstery and sent it to be reupholstered. We should have noticed this before you had to tell us. The garden is very hard to maintain...

My husband and I stayed here for one night on the classic drive down the coast, and upon arrival we wish we could have stayed longer! The rooms were cosy and charming, and the service was exceptional - felt like you were staying in a very generous and hospitable family's home. The whole place has been thoughtfully furnished with antiques,...

The Martine Inn overlooks the ocean and the view is just the beginning of the charm. Each room is individually furnished in antiques and vintage furniture. No two are alike. A box of chocolate is waiting for you in your room. The breakfast served with silver serving pieces, linen table cloths and napkins. The lovely server offers a choice of...

In today's world where almost everything seems to be electronic, we believe we are more desirous of personal contact than ever. We, at the Martine Inn, try to provide personal contact and we are pleased you found us charming, certainly not an electronic term. Thanks for choosing us.

We traveled from Boston for the "2015 Car Week" and could not have been happier with our selection of the Martine Inn. The location was perfect for all that we had planned for our 5-day stay.

Don Martine, his Grandson and the entire staff took great care of us. Breakfast and the afternoon offerings were always tasty and well prepared. I particularly enjoyed Don's "mini-museum" that includes a number of notable MG automobiles including Johnnie von Neumann's MG Special. All that aside, you couldn't find a friendlier, more comfortable place more conveniently situated in the Monterey...
