Stayed here as part of a coast-to-coast trip. Budget priced but friendly, comfortable and welcoming. Easy stroll to Monterey centre, Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row. Good value and highly recommended

We had only one night in Monterey and stayed at the Colton Inn, right in the heart of town. It's a pretty building with very nice rooms. Our standard room had a lovely bathroom, a separate make-up area outside of the bathroom and a small balcony outside the room, looking over a courtyard. The bed was very comfortable, made up with soft bed linens and great pillows. The room was clean and bright, spacious and a very good value for the money. The continental breakfast was a tad awkward as it is served in the small check-in lobby and you had to carry it out and back to your room on a tray, or nibble it in your car or the parking lot. But it was a very adequate meal with good coffee, cereals, fresh fruits and a variety of breads available. We would definitely stay here again!

This gem came so close to 5 stars. Two little things prevented it. Firstly our room was really noisy. I was woken up twice during the night by rowdy neighbours (out of hotel's control really). We were on the ground floor right near the check in. If I was to stay again I'd definitely ask for an upper level room. Also the shower water on both of the two mornings we were there was only just luke warm. They were the quickest showers on a cool December morning.

Onto the positives.
1. Firstly the staff in the lobby are wonderful. So friendly and helpful.
2. Room was gorgeous and spacious. Quite modern with a fireplace that we couldn't resist using. Lovely going to sleep watching the fire.
3. Comfy beds with lovely bedding.
4. Room had a microwave and fridge.
5. Breakfast was more than adequate - bagels, croissants, pastries, cereals, oats and fruit. It was served in the lobby and you could take it all to your room.
6. Free coffee/tea and cookies served in the afternoons
7. Fabulous location, only 10 minutes easy walk to historic downtown and the pier
8. Free parking
9. Easy 10 minute drive to Carmel and 17 mile drive

Great value and good location to boot. Friendly staff and very decent continental breakfast.
The staff will help you with any reservations in the area. Cookies and fruit in the afternoon add a nice touch to the Inn.

This is a good value and close to good food and the marina and bay. Problems include that the parking is too tight, pillows are hard, and a fire house nearby runs a lot of calls creating siren noise etc. Not too bad overall but there are better options in the area.

This place is a little gem. Wonderful location within walking distance of downtown and Fisherman's Wharf. Coffee, snacks and an excellent assortment of teas available in the office all day, in addition to breakfast items each morning. Rooms equipped with refrigerator and microwave. Exceptionally clean. I'll definitely stay here again next time I'm in Monterey.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, and all have a small balcony overlooking a green area in the rear. A communal...
