Great location. Within comfortable walking distance to Cannery Row and the Aquarium. We were given a corner room on the 2nd floor with 2 dbl beds. We are a family of five, so we were able to use the bay window cushions to make a pallet on the floor,(no roll away beds available) for one of the kids and everyone...

A fairly large sprawling 2 storey hotel built in 'Victorian' style. We had a large comfortable room with plenty of space and a balcony, it also had a high beamed ceiling with a fan (no a/c but this wasn't a problem) which made it feel very light. The room was furnished in 'Victorian' style with armchairs, paintings and dark furniture....

We wanted to stay close to Cannery Row without being on the actual street. Namely, those hotels were pretty expensive and I saw some reviews that commented how loud those hotels could be. This hotel was great, because we were just a couple blocks off Cannery Row. It was such a short walk to everything, but we still had quiet...

Good sized rooms with fireplaces which made the room very welcoming and homely. The hotel is in a great location and easy to find. Only negative was breakfast in the morning. It was extremely busy and the seating facilities are not adequate to meet the capacity of the hotel. It felt like a school dining hall. The breakfast itself was...

The location is great. The room was okay. It was very musty and doesn't have much air moving thru. There isn't any air conditioning, so the room was a little warm. The bathroom is very dated could use some remodeling. Not sure if the grout in the tile floor is supposed to be that dark. For some reason both of...

We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and the Victorian Inn staff prepared a big surprise for us. We had a great wine bottle waiting for us in the bedroom with a beautiful welcome message of the staff. This was a kind gesture that we appreciate a lot.

We are three sisters in our 60s who decided to take a Pacific Coast Road Trip. We stayed at the BW Victorian because of the close proximity to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and other Cannery Row attractions.

The hotel is very nice. Big clean room, with a porch. The location is excellent - just minutes to the center, where all the restaurants. 5 min. To the aquarium. Breakfast is problematic - the dining room is small, and often there is no seating for guests, who is forced to wait. Very embarrassing to a hotel at such a...

This hotel doesn't have the best first impression. From the outside it looks old and in need if fresh new paint. But once we checked it things just changed. The customer service was amazing! We didn't even ask for an upgrade yet they offered us one. They have free breakfast, which was spartan in variety yet quite filling. Our room...
