On our Pacific Coast highway trip, we stopped in Monterey at this charming Inn for one night. The rooms were Victorian-style era with a fireplace in the bedroom and a lovely little balcony. We felt spoiled to be there. The breakfast was delicious and wi-fi super simple -- walking distance to all the restaurants and local attractions we wanted to...

When you book a room here, and "total cost" is shown, it does NOT include an additional, undisclosed, $13 per day parking fee. I have no problem with a hotel charging parking fees, but not showing this on the reservation is not a transparent way to do business. In hundreds of stays at motels for business and pleasure, have never...

Thank you for your feedback. It is unfortunate to hear that you were unaware of the parking fee. Please let us know how you made your reservation so we can research the issue further.

We stay at this hotel every time we visit Monterey. You can't beat the location (walk to Cannery Row) and the service (breakfast and wine/cheese). The staff are very courteous and friendly. The rooms are clean. Our large pet also enjoys her visit.

We spent two nights in the Cannery Row area of Monterey staying one night at the BW Plus Victorian Inn. The location was within walking distance to Cannery Row shops and restaurants. The property is made up of several connected buildings so depending on which room you stay, there may be a long walk and some stairs/elevator to your room....

Very clean hotel with fireplaces in most rooms adds a nice cozy touch. Great location, walking distance to Cannery Row restaurants, bars and shops we well as walking distance to the aquarium.

Had a wonderful time. The Victorian Inn is very accommodating with a great Manager's reception, a bottle of wine and chocolate upon arrival for repeat guests, a nice breakfast and very comfortable bed. Close to everything!

We always look for a Best Western. Their rooms are clean and comfortable and employees, friendly and helpful. If there ever is a problem it's dealt with in a timely manner. The continental breakfast, which is included, is always grand. A good selection of breakfast foods are presented and it's appreciated!!!

We stayed at this hotel for one night while on vacation. Location was great, walking distance to Cannery Row and attractions. Our room was very nice with a fireplace and a small balcony. Everything was very clean and the bed was comfortable. We were on the second floor facing the street. We didn't notice any real noise. Would definitely stay...

Thank you for posting your helpful review! We are glad to know that you found the street side room on the second floor to be quiet and restful. Traffic on Foam street usually dies down after 5pm, though we are still just a few blocks from all that Cannery Row has to offer. We will certainly look forward to your...

My wife and I have been exploring the Santa Cruz/Monterey peninsula, and this is our recommendation to you. The room was spectacular - even had a little balcony with table and chairs facing the ocean. Inside the very large room a very comfortable bed, and easy to use fireplace, with the big flat screen over it. A two block walk...

The Victorian Inn is located a short walk from Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Our room was larger than average with a nice view of the bay in the distance. Room decor was fine. We slept well in the king-sized bed in the room. We will return here next time we are in the Monterey area.
