Reviewed 23 June 2012

This hotel was a bit off the beaten path, but within walking distance of downtown and the wharf area. The room was very clean, quiet, and spacious with nice amenities, particularly a comfortable bed, a list of hundreds of free dvds to check out, and fruit, cookies, and coffee for afternoon snacks. The continental breakfast was simple but filling with a variety of breads, cereals, fruit, orange juice, and coffee/tea. Fair price for Monterey, and definitely recommended.

Friends shared adjoining rooms and each had separate balconies. Rooms were spacious, very clean, very well-maintained. Not the most snazzy place, but, who needs snazzy when looking for good location and good value? We'd stay here again. Lobby had complimentary fruit, newspapers, plenty of maps and brochures. Parking area also tidy and convenient. Walk anywhere. One of our party was unable to attend, so the charge for that extra bed was deleted without our even asking. An altogether nice place to stay.

Any negative reviews generally cause us to rethink booking a particular property. Despite some negative comments, we found the Colton Inn to be very clean, fresh, quiet and comfortable. It's location is excellent. You can easily walk to the wharf, restaurants and shops. A good value.

We stayed 2 nights at the Colton Inn and were pleasantly surprised by it's comfort and of course it's brilliant location in relation to the sea front, Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row and the Aquarium. All of these are a short walk away. The seas front about 10 minutes with Cannery Row about 25 minutes away.
The room was large, comfortable and clean. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful both with advice and help with booking any tickets.
This motel style Inn is the perfect place for anyone wishing to explore Monterey, Carmel, 17 Mile Drive etc, as it is aslo close to the main highway. It was quiet at night. If we go back to Monterey we will certainly stay there again.

We (family with two kids) stayed for 2 nights. The service was great, we especially emjoyed the free DVDs offer. In general very relaxed atmosphere. For the money the best deal you can get in this area.

We booked the Colton based on the location and we were really happy overall. 5 minute walk into the centre of town, nice, spacious rooms, albeit it a little dated. And free parking and free breakfast. Desk staff were great, always looking to help. Would definitely recommend, as the price is right and we also had a private jacuzzi in a little area outside our room, which really was fantastic for the price.
Only downside was the noise - it tended to get noisy at around 6:30am (when garbage trucks arrive) and there were lots of doors slamming, so did not get the best sleep.

We booked the Colton Inn based on the reasonable price and location; both of these delivered. We could walk to restaurants and other areas easily. The room was large and spacious. The breakfast was a surprise--for the price of the room, we were able to have a completely fine breakfast with enough nutritious choices to make it good. We were also so glad to have picked Monterey as a location to stay in; in the midst of a pricey/high-tone area, Monterey was affordable and had the benefit of the wonderful Aquarium.
