“lovely yet noisy”
Reviewed 29 December 2010

We chose to stay at the Mariposa Inn in Monterey a second time due to the lovely rooms and amenities. The last time we stayed there, we did hear everything going on in the next room. We took a gamble that this time might be a little quieter. Unfortunately, we were in a room next to a young couple that decided to party until 1 a.m. The walls are so thin, that you can hear everything. Because of our lack of sleep, we had trouble getting up the next morning. When we asked to check out at noon instead of the 11:00 check out, we were told no. I had to beg for an 11:30 check out. Also our fireplace didn't work and the outside jacuzzi didn't have bubbles. I think we will try another place next time. Too bad, it is a very nice place.

My husband & I discovered this hotel on TripAdvisor, and we were so happy with our stay! Located close to the freeway, a major shopping mall and other gems, this hotel was the best place we stayed along our driving up the CA coast. We were upgraded to a room with a fireplace due to low vacany following the holidays, which was a wonderful treat as the weather was cold. The bed was the most luxurious hotel bed I have ever slept in - a huge California King with soft sheets and a mattress that fel like sleeping on a cloud! Our room had a large flat screen TV that had more channels than I have ever seen in a hotel. Within walking distance was a large mall with great shops and restaurants, and the shower had good pressure with warm water. Breakfast was served across from the lobby (bagels, toast, cereal, etc). and I was very sad to say good-bye to this hotel. I highly recommend his hotel to fellow Monterey go-ers!

Mariposa Inn and Suites is a very nice place 2 stay! I was a little skeptical. I spoke with Michelle at the Inn who reassured me that the rooms are beautiful! When we arrived on 11/27/2010 I was amazed at the rooms! Complaints: Bathtub stopper did not work, I asked for room2be cleaned at a later time they never showed,our room 208(exec.king suite) is on the end next 2 main entrance very loud with slamming doors! Get anthr room!

We had a wonderful experience. We stayed at the Mariposa Inn & Suites as we were running the Big Sur Half Marathon. We travelled to Monterey with friends in an RV. The staff was tremendously accommodating in terms of our parking needs, saving their "bus parking" for our RV. The rooms are beautifully done - love the fireplaces in the rooms. The beds are very comfortable - the only negative is the pillows leave a great deal to be desired (they were really lumpy and uncomfortable). Otherwise, the rooms are great. Really loved Oscar at hte front desk - so warm, welcoming and friendly. This hotel has taken great steps toward sustainability - love that they are so "green". Despite the 1.3 mile hike to the convention center for our race packets and the start of the race, we all agreed that we would absolutely stay at the Mariposa Inn & Suites if we decide to run the 2011 Big Sur Half Marathon. Wonderful place!

Stayed at Mariposa Inn in September 2010. This is a great hotel - a hidden gem! We had an executive king room with its own patio, large table and chairs and patio heater. Bedroom and sitting room with flat screen TVs in each and fireplace in bedroom which was welcome on chilly evenings. Fridge and safe included. Good quality complimentary toiletries were available in bathroom. Lovely pool and jacuzzi. Good breakfast with outside seating area - great for sunny days! Helfpful staff - all in all a great stay at Mariposa and hope to go back again one day!

The hotel was located very close to all points I traveled to and right around the corner from Pebble Beach Resort.

The rooms where very nice with fireplace and plenty of room to relax when not working!

The staff was extremely friendly!

Had an amazing stay here. Came late for breakfast, but the guy cleaning up brought some food out for us. I felt bad messing the place up after he had already cleaned up, but he was super nice about getting us fed.

The rooms were extremely nice for the price we paid.
