Our room was impressively clean and nicely furnished with comfortable beds. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was also nice considering it was modified for COVID-19 with delicious pastry options, a ham/cheese english muffin sandwich, fruit and yogurt. Loved its location and how it was an easy walking distance to Cannery Row. We paid $17 per night for parking in the garage underneath the hotel, but it seemed to be a safe place to park. Be sure when you pull into the garage to come in at a slight angle rather than pulling straight in to keep from scraping the bottom of your vehicle. Overall a great place to stay in Monterey!

We had a fantastic family weekend in Monterey. The Best Western was very clean and safe. We were met with excellent customer service. The location was within walking distance to the beach, many restaurants and even a CVS. I highly recommend this location if you interested in exploring both the tourist areas and quieter areas of this cute beach town. We had a noise issue and the hotel staff resolved it very quickly and with great friendliness I most appreciated the cleaning procedures and proper mask usage during our stay. Additionally the grab and go breakfast was very efficient and had both cold and hot options. One of our favorite parts of the stay was the fireplace in the room. It was both a gorgeous amenity but came in hand with with the cold ocean breeze. As a family who has been indoors for several months we were happy to to be able to spend a nice short, and safe weekend in Monterey. We will gladly stay at the Best Western in the future.

Our stay at the Best Western Victorian Inn was absolutely perfect. The rooms were large in size yet very cozy - we enjoyed the lovely little seating area with the fireplace and very comfortable King bed. Our standard room had nice amenities, a balcony with seating, even an ocean view. The service at the Inn was outstanding, in fact everyone from the front desk staff to the staff in the dining room was very accommodating. Breakfast offered a variety of options and we enjoyed the wine/cheese in the afternoon. Also a great central location, we parked at the Inn and walked to the Aquarium, Cannery Row, etc Just the perfect weekend!

During a four night stay we were only able to get the room cleaned, towels replaced, etc. once with great effort. Very un-Best Western like. Location was excellent, parking just okay in the basement at $17 per night with a very steep incline to get in and out which made the bottom of the car scrape the driveway getting in or out and I have a medium sized sedan.

Great customer service by the people at the front desk.
French toast and make your own waffles was served with the Continental breakfast 😋
Close enough to walk to a lot of places. Once we checked in, we parked the car and we didn’t use the car till we checked out :)

Very little one can add to the earlier helpful, positive reviews. Our room was on the third floor facing over the courtyard and the roof tops with a little bit of water view. Since it was slow season most rooms were not occupied and we were not bothers by any loud voices.

Best of all was the very friendly and helpful staff, and the cold water flavored with freshly cut oranges or lemons in the lobby was very much appreciated after a long sight seeing day.

We did a girls trip up to Monterey for a friend's wedding and were lucky enough to get a solid price for a night at the Victorian Inn. I would recommend this hotel to anyone! The main lobby and breakfast room are very charming and we loved that the current dog guests were listed on a whiteboard alongside a jar of free dog treats and dog waste bags. The really sweet young woman who introduced herself as the manager allowed us to check in early so that we could get ready for our 3pm wedding. The staff had said in advance that if other guests checked out early they would accommodate us, but even though checkout was 12pm they were able to sneak us into a room around 1:30pm. We were so grateful! That really made the experience for us. She also gave us parking tips (you can park on site for $17-20 if you wish, or try other options) and was really flexible with us making a decision about parking onsite later on.

The breakfast was PHENOMENAL. Try the omelettes! I truly think it may have been the best continental breakfast I've had in the USA. Coffee, tea, fruit, juice, cereal, granola, oatmeal, make your own waffles, muffins, bagels, and sausage were also available.

We would absolutely stay here again and really appreciated their hospitality! Only things that could be improved is the shower water pressure and also we couldn't figure out how to turn off the alarms on the alarm clock that another guest had set for very early. That might just be us not being tech-savvy, but either clearing the alarms during the cleaning process or putting instructions would be awesome.

Thanks for the great stay!

We stayed two nights mid-week at this hotel and found it perfect for our needs. It sits two blocks up from Cannery Row and was an easy walk to the shops/restaurants and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Lighthouse Ave is the block above it, and there are several restaurants and a CVS within an easy walk. (We highly recommend Hula’s Island Grill.) It was so nice to walk around to see the sights and not have to drive or look for parking. But the street provides easy access if you do want to drive other places in town. The hotel has an underground parking garage for $17 per night, which we thought was fair considering how close it is to the attractions. The front desk manager and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room fridge had no freezer, so we asked the front desk if they could put our ice blocks in their kitchen freezer, and it was no problem. Our room was attractive and clean. The breakfast buffet offers quite an array of food in a pretty dining room that included both regular small tables and a couch and armchair area. We would stay here again.

We spent 2 nights here to visit sights in not only Monterey, but also Pacific Grove, Asilomar, Pebble Beach, and, of course, Carmel. The room rates are high in this much-visited destination, but this property offered a lot, besides view and free breakfast. Secured parking the basement is an extra $17 per night, but there is available parking on the street.
Cannery Row is in walking distance (save $20 in parking at their structure). There's many shops and restos on Lighthouse St. We love Crystal Fish for sushi.
We had a great time here and would return.

That is a good question. Your best bet would be to contact the hotel directly to inquire about that. I’m unable to answer personally.

I saw a family with a quiet and well-behaved dog in their room. I don't know if it was allowed or not. Why not call them? I know some BW's do allow them.
