Being a Best Western, we were not expecting the cozy, inviting B&B experience we received at this hotel. The rooms were large and well-appointed, much like staying in someone's home. Not a run-of-the-mill chain hotel experience at all. The location was excellent - two blocks from Cannery Row and 20 minutes walk from Fisherman's Wharf. Parking costs extra, and we...

It's so amazing how reviews can be so positive about this hotel. My opinions are: It is nothing special. It's a stacked motel type facility on a busy street with thin walls. On a glorious sunny day in Monterrey, my hotel was just plain. Rooms are rather dark gussied up with a gas fireplace. Big screen TV with low rez...

Perfect location for walking to Cannery Row and local shops and restaurants. Great hotel for staying with dogs. Room is very cute and comfortable. Clean and spacious. The fireplace adds a delightful little touch and some romantic ambiance. Customer service at the front desk was fantastic and quick. I love that we could leave our car parked in the lot...

Within walking distance of all popular attractions, but far enough away from the crowds. Helpful staff. Check with them about restaurant suggestions, they have complimentary offers from many of them. Breakfast is full buffet, Very quiet even on 2nd floor. Wine at reception not great but the people you meet from all over the world make it worth going down...

We were on a small guided tour of Highway 1, and this was our stop for the night----Cannery Row in Monterey. From the hotel you can walk easily thru the Cannery Row section of Monterey, up to the Aquarium, to the beach, up a half mile to watch the seals lying on the beach. There is Wifi and it was...

We decided on Saturday to go to Monterey on Sunday for two nights. The two or three places we have stayed at in the past were booked so I looked around the web for other options. With a high rating from Tripadvisor and availability we booked our stay. We had a King room on the third floor and it was...

We were looking for a hotel that was centrally located so that we wouldn't have to drive to the Aquarium, Cannery Row, dinner, etc. The Victorian Inn was perfect! Our room was clean, quiet, convenient AND ready for us when we arrived at 3pm (check in is 4pm). The hotel hosts a wine and cheese reception every afternoon at 4:30...

It was just ok for us. I was expecting nicer for the price we paid. Not a place for little ones. Had to carry the stroller up and down steps. The screen door in our room had no lock on it to keep a two year old in. The heat was turned completely off. Glad my husband could figure out...

We stayed at the Best Western Victorian Inn. Got a nice room with two queen beds, nice TV, fireplace and outside patio which had a sneaky way into the jacuzzi. Parking was $13 extra, but we ended up walking to the Cannery in the morning and left the car behind. We were 4 adults and had no problem. We didn't...

Reviewed 17 July 2012

Our room was beautiful, clean and recently updated. It is very convenient for walking to Cannery Row. The afternoon wine and morning breakfast was very generous and delicious. Our room was on the street which was a bit noisy on a weekday morning, but otherwise fine. We got it for a fabuous price which made it a wonderful value.
