Adorable little resort in Capitola overlooking Monterey Bay. Billed as "Bed and Breakfast", but really just a continental breakfast brought to your room, nothing fancy. Most rooms are in a main house but all with private entrances, no common areas except for outdoor gardens. Could hear voices from other rooms in the evenings but did not keep us from sleeping....

We found the Monarch Cove Inn to be the perfect place for our two nights in the area. We are not B&B people but this somehow skipped those trappings - mainly that breakfast was delivered to our room, and it was beyond generous - in fact we did not finish it either morning. Our room - Lilac - had a...

We rented the Holiday House Cottage since we had a dog with us; it was a comfortable, private place to stay with a little kitchen, fenced in yard and deck with parking right next door. We have stayed in other rooms in the Inn, all very nice, but dogs are only allowed in the two cottages. The staff was very...

Perhaps considered one of the standard rooms, the Victorian Room is a superb option here. It has a terrific view, electric fireplace, sitting deck outside the entry door, super soft queen bed, good bathroom. Most amenities except bathrobes. I recommend the 'romance' option which included a beautiful rose arrangement, box of chocolates and rose petals scattered on the bed. My...

It was so nice. Staff was excellent and the rooms are gorgeous. The weather was great and it couldn't of been more perfect. I had never stayed at a B&B but this pretty much set the bar very high. Way better then a cheap motel. Spend the extra $ and live it up for once. We will definitely be coming...

Perfect place for a weekend get away, quiet area, close to Capitola Village for a quick dinner lunch etc... Staff were friendly parking was not an issue and the grounds are beautiful. We had the Lilac Room with ocean view, the room was cozy and perfect!

Location of the property could not be nicer. It is set on a hillside cliff overlooking the Monterey Bay. The view is outstanding. Unfortunately, the interior of the property has not been well-kept. We experienced three different rooms. The ocean mist, Ocean view, and the Victorian room. The ocean mist was the nicest room with a full window facing the...

The ocean mist room had great views and had a private feel. The artwork had an archaic vibe along with the curtains in the main room. It was fun to explore the neighborhoods around to see some fun yard art.

I took my parents on a weekend getaway for my mom's birthday on New year's eve. My dad and I spent about 5 hours looking online for a place to stay but as you can imagine, almost everywhere we found were booked. Then I happened to find Monarch Cove Inn. It was exactly the type of place we were looking...
