“Great location, near everything.”
Reviewed 13 October 2009

Over all very charming. A bit out-dated in areas such as TV and VHS players. Would have been nice to have a DVD player. Had to keep the patio door open for air anf there was a lot of strret noise at times.

This hotel is fantastic, the room was very clean and the decor was very nice and had a wonderful feeling of home away from home. The staff was very courteous and the location is great. I stayed with a friend for one night and the price was very resonable for us to split. The only complaint I have is that the street noise can be loud during certain hours, which I realize the hotel can not control. Overall I had a very wonderful experience and I would definately stay at this hotel again and recommend it to all of my friends and family.

We planned a weekend trip to the Monterey Aquarium, and this place ultimately won out because of the reasonable rates and the convenient location. We ended up paying about $175 a night, which was comparable to other hotels. But we could walk to Cannery Row and the Aquarium, which was really nice after a long car trip from Southern California. The free continental breakfast was pretty decent (bagels, cereal, hard boiled eggs, fruit) and the afternoon wine, cheese, and crackers was a nice touch. It's not quality food, but it was fine and convenient.

The main downside to the hotel was that the rooms did not have A/C. In Monterey, the weather is usually cool enough to not need it, but it was a hot August weekend, and we were uncomfortably warm at certain points. Also, it's true that the walls are thin. We heard what sounded like three children running around on the floor above around 11pm. We're heavy sleepers, so it didn't keep us awake, but it was definitely noticeable.

The staff was friendly and informative. The room was wonderful. We arrived with a 60# dog and were quite pleased with both the size of the room and the Inn. Great breakfast! Can't wait for next year.

great location - midway between Cannery Row/Monterey Bay Aquarium and old Monterey. many walk-to stores. restaurants, and shops. i did not have private transportation (no car).
the room i had was a king, ground floor. i occasionally heard the occupants in the room above me when they walked heavily, typical of older properties. every staff member i encountered acknowledged and greeted me.
recently renovated rooms so carpets were fairly new, as well as decor bedding. the fireplace was a nice touch, but didn't use it (summer). would stay there again. typical continental type breakfast available. due to the nature of my stay, i dined out. i did not assess whether there was a restaurant or room service available, but inclined to say no. very perfunctory without the luxury. (previous reviews indicated animal smells in elevators, no indication of that due to no carpeting in elevator from carpark).

The bad: The designated "dog room" we stayed in was terrible. The floor was some kind of laminated plastic. Every time we or our dog turned around in the small room, we slipped. I requested a throw rug but was told they had none. I didn't want to touch the bedspread. The tiny balcony (I mean TINY) overlooked a very busy street, traffic going all day and all night.

The good: Very decent simple breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese in a nice Victorian room, and very good complementary coffee. We were suppose to stay six nights and the management very graciously let us leave after two nights without extra charge.

My suggestion: Skip Monterey altogether and go to the much nicer and not any pricier Carmel. It is beautiful and pet friendly rooms are abundant.

We appreciate our guest’s comments concerning their room experience. Feedback is always welcome and considered to be of significant value to our business. Our pet-friendly rooms have a laminate floor rather than carpet. We have chosen this type of flooring in order to offer a more hygienic experience for our guests. Again, we appreciate the guest’s comments.
