Quick trip to Monterey because they had a $99 a night special mid week. The place is clean, safe, and has a great location. Breakfast is plentiful. There is a wine/cheese hour - but just okay. My only complaint would be the charge for parking - $15 a day. Other places in the area DON'T charge - so when comparing... More

The location is excellent for visiting the sites, including the Monterey Aquarium. A two-day ticket to the Aquiriam (two days for the price of one, discounted) is offered to guests.The rooms are spacious room with a fireplace. There is a wine and cheese event in the late afternoon. We were also presented with a complimentary bottle of wine in our... More

We come to cannery row every thanksgiving to visit the aquarium. We have stayed for years at the Victorian inn and I finally have had enough. It's very expensive, it's parking is very expensive and very awkward, the services are indifferent. The breakfast is mediocre and the dining area is very ill-suited to dining, few tables, lots of places you... More

Outstanding value. Fabulous location in Cannery Row walking distance to Aquarium and many shops and restaurants. We traveled with our two therapy pet dogs and were greeted in the room with dog bowls of treats, bottled water and handwritten note. Never in all my travels with dogs has a hotel done this. Room very comfortable. Excellent value. I highly recommend... More

Lovely little inn, great value for money. The rooms are very spacious with fireplace, large TVs and bathroom. The bathroom perhaps needed a little updating, but everywhere was immaculately clean. Bed was very comfortable. Nice little balcony too. Excellent location very easy walking distance from restaurants and attractions. Breakfast good too-hot and cold selection. Would highly recommend and would stay... More

The manager, Charlene, was very helpful! She made our trip even nicer. We had an eleven week old with us and she helped us select a room that made our stay even more comfortable with her. She helped by answering all questions we had about the area. The service staff was very efficient and courteous.

Our spacious and cosy room was on the 2nd floor facing the garden courtyard, therefore more quiet than rooms on the street side. The location is ideal on walking distance to the Cannery Row and the bus stops to downtown, Carmel and Pacific Grove. Breakfast was simply good, we loved the French toast. A recommendation for dinner: Bistro Moulin close... More

Rooms are large, staff is very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast is great. This facility is best if you get on garden side 3 rd floor. Many rooms have Foam stree views and noise. You can walk to Aquarium, Cannery Row shops and outlets in less than 5 minutes. In 155 minutes you can walk the very beautiful oceanfront... More

Wife and I was here for a nightduring our PCH road trip. We drove straight here from LA on a Thursday night and arrived late into the night. The property was easy to find with it's own parking lot (parking was quite expensive but industry standard, and we were too lazy to find street parking.) The gentlemen at the front... More

This property is older but very well maintained and is in the Victorian style. Gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub, etc. and clean. It could use an update but still very nice and good value. Service was great and they even had a bottle of wine on ice when I arrived! Very nice touch! I'll be back for sure..Thank you!
