“Great base.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Lovely hotel, nice big rooms with fireplace and logs provided if needed.
Spotless inside the rooms and made very welcome when checking in.
Continental breakfast very nice with fresh fruit and yogurt,either take it to your rooms or courtyard round the back of the reception.
Fridge and microwave inc in the room and a lovely touch of coffee and cookies after 1pm.
Great hotel and lovely people.

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

We loved the warm welcome at this hotel, breakfast was included and free use of DVDs . Close to town and nice big rooms. Tea, coffee and cookies when we arrived was a nice touch. Nice veranda for breakfast and nice setting.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

We were really impressed with our room. Perhaps we were lucky to have one with its own log fire, but combined with cleanliness, spaciousness and comfort , it was great. We got the impression that the walls were quite thin but fortunately we had quiet neighbours so there was no problem. The room service was really good. The best room clean we have had. The provision of NBCSN as a TV channel enabled us to watch an important Premier League football match at 5.30 a.m. in the comfort of our room ! As others have said, the location is excellent. Just a short walk to Fisherman's Wharf and walking to the Aquarium is perfectly feasible and enjoyable. Taking a breakfast tray to your room is not ideal but the choice is good , including fresh fruit and croissants. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: A room with a log fire is a bonus in cold weather.

This is an Inn in a good location, within walking distance to most of the attractions in the area. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. There is a basic breakfast available from the reception to take away to the room, although there is an outside seating area beside reception. Cookies, tea, coffee and fruit are available until the evening.

The hotel is pretty comfortable. Rooms, bed and bathroom do not lack in space. Free wifi and a wide parking space are an important added value. The only thing that might be better is breakfast. Not for the choice which is pretty rich and wide but rather for the logistics. There is no proper room and having breakfast in the lobby is not the best...

This hotel is located right at the edge of their main Town. Alvarado street (which is their Main Street) is only two blocks away, about a 5 minute walk and there are loads of restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. About a 15-20 walk to the end of Alvarado Street and look to your left, you'll be at Fisherman's Whaft. Colton Inn does have a small Continental breaks until 10:30 am and cookies during the day. The rooms are no 5 star hotel, but it's clean, nice and it has its own microwave, and refrigerator, which is always a plus for me. When we got there, out TV wasn't working. With two 14 year old girls, we called the front desk and Cindy was the friendliest and most accommodating host and had us move one room over. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Monterey.

Room Tip: Our original room had a large couch and very roomy. (Loved it, but the TV was inoperative) From mo...

We chose it as a motel on the way from LA to SF, and were surprised of finding something quite nice and well provided. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely kind and helpful. Cindy gave me the most quiet possible room, as per requested, but in any case, the place is not noisy at all. It is within walking distance to the dinning area of the city and the harbour, and in a safe neighborhood.The price was very reasonable. The breakfast is a simple self service in the reception area, but well provided and good quality. There is a seating place to have the breakfast but it is outdoors, and during rainy or cold days cannot be used. The parking is free and spacious, and Internet free works well.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor not to have anyone walking on top. Most construction in all California is mad...
