We drove down to Monterey for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary.
For a romantic trip, spending the extra money for one of the hot tub rooms was definitely worth it. It was so wonderful to be able to take a quick dip in it at any time of day or night without other guests.
We arrived on a Thursday and there were very few other guests. Front desk staff was very pleasant and we enjoyed the cookies and coffee at the front desk.
We had arrived exactly at check-in time and were given our room key. We were surprised to find that the staff was not finished with the room! There were two men still sterilizing the hot tub. While we appreciated seeing that the hot tub was cleaned, it struck us as a bit unprofessional that the front desk was not aware that the room wasn't quite ready yet. However, this was the only snag and the rest of our stay was pleasant.
Be aware that the rooms do not have central heating or air conditioning. It isn't really needed with the coastal climate. They do provide space heaters for the cooler months. Also, there is no coffee pot in the room. You must walk down to the front office for coffee, but they do keep it hot and fresh.
We took advantage of the free DVDs twice and found it to be very easy to borrow and return them.
The room, towels, and linens all appeared to be clean. The exterior of the building appears a bit dated, but the grounds are well-maintained. Overall we found Colton Inn to be a good value in this market and we would definitely stay there again.
