Best Western Plus Victorian Inn
Ranked #6 of 56 Hotels in Monterey
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 April 2013

The Best Western is in a great location. A short walk from the Coastal trail, Fisherman's Wharf, Aquarium, Path of History, etc. The area is easy to get to by car and there is plenty of parking in the basement (surcharge). The room was a little old but very clean and very quality where it counts (at least for me): bed, desk. The nicer touches include a high ceiling (stayed on the 2nd floor), a mini-fridge and a working gas fireplace which actually was very nice. Although I did not sample them, there is a continental breakfast and an afternoon wine/cheese reception daily--nice touches! All in all, very happy with my stay and would definitely stay there again when in Monterey.

Great location for our first trip to Monterey. We enjoyed the fireplace room and easy access to Cannery Row and trails. The hotel also host a daily wine tasting that was an extra perk and the hot breakfast was always very good. I would recommend this hotel based on our experience.

I stayed at this hotel with my husband and two young sons. I chose it because it had suites (essential when traveling with young kids), a refrigerator (actually two - one in each room!), and was close to many attractions. I was pleasantly surprised at how large the rooms were. We had lots of space, a fireplace in each room, and a balcony for each room. Some of the furnishings seemed to have been recently updated, but others looked dated. The breakfast was a pretty standard hotel continental breakfast. We liked that they had trays so it was easy to take breakfast for the family back to our room. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable. The living room sofa had a pull-out bed for my 5-year-old son. The 2-year-old slept in a crib (provided by the hotel).

The hotel was located between Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf, about a block from the pedestrian trail. It was a short walk to lots of restaurants, places to view the seals and sea otters, and the aquarium. Grocery stores (Safeway and Trader Joe's) were about 3 miles away up a very big hill (an easy trip with a car but not so easy on foot).

I booked the room directly on the hotel website and got the AAA deal (cheaper than I saw it anywhere else). Parking is an extra $13/night.

We checked in on April 5th and checked out on the 7th. The rooms we stayed in (121 & 122) were on the bottom floor, right in front of the street. No view, but the landscape provided excellent privacy. The rooms were a good size, clean and well stocked. The two big red chairs in each room were very comfortable and the patio had two more patio style chairs with a small patio table. We kept the patio door open in the morning but closed when we were out during the day/night and did not notice the traffic sounds being a nuisance. We didn't hear any of our neighbors, except for the ones above and only for a short time on the morning of check out, so it was overall pretty quiet. The couple we traveled with did have a group of full of young adults in the room next to them going in and out the front and patio doors all night long, both nights, so it was a little noisier for our friends, but it was not the Inn's fault, just the luck of the draw. We are early risers and experienced no problems with the shower water pressure at 7am, but our friends did when they took showers at 9am. The staff was most accommodating and Victor handled the bottles at the evening wine reception with great showmanship. He actually took the time to demonstrate his technique, which I enjoyed greatly. The Inn was very generous both at the wine reception and breakfast. All four of us agreed that the Inn is a good value with great customer service, within walking distance of many attractions and we'll be back again requesting the same rooms.

We enjoyed a one night stay at the Victorian Inn in March. The room on the third floor complete with an ocean view and fireplace was frankly nicer than expected. The wine and cheese reception was lovely. We were in Monterey to attend our grandson's graduation at the Presido and the location could not have been any better. I hope to return for a longer stay soon.

We stayed two nights at the Best Western Plus in Monterey. We had two adults and two children. The only plus for us was that it was within walking distance to main attractions. The minus was that the walls and windows we sooo thin that is was difficult to get a decent nights rest. Our room was on the second floor and over looked the street. Decently noisy at night. The bathroom was pretty dated, although it was clean it felt dirty because of how old it was. The shower's water pressure was fast and slow, as if you were at home and had two showers running at the same time. We booked our stay last minute so I wasn't expecting too much. But I would not stay there again.

This Best Western is right down the street from the aquarium and Cannery Row. Location-wise it is awesome, however, because it is on the main route through town the rooms on the front of the hotel are VERY noisy. Staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was unremarkable, room cleanliness was o.k., beds were doubles not queens..I felt that this hotel was a bit overpriced for what you got. Plus you have to pay $13/day for parking. Would probably not stay here again as there are other hotels of same quality off of the main route that are close to aquarium as well.

Room Tip: Get a room on the back side of the hotel. Rooms on the street-side are VERY noisy!
