We stayed here as an alternative to our usual favorite, The Intercontinental Hotel. So you have to understand this review in that context. While the general outdoor appearance of the house is not very impressive, inside, it is a quaint Victorian style Inn with commanding Pacific views. The staff is so friendly and accommodating, the food is excellent, likely the... More

great location, excellent breakfast, friendly staff, close to attractions. Parking can be difficult, but not impossible. Ocean view from the breakfast room, able to view otters, dolphins and quite possibly whales with a direct view of the Monterey Bay.

Yes, peace and quiet all weekend at The Martine Inn. Loved it. Reluctantly we decided to risk it and try a b&b which we've never done, (hubby likes room service) and I thought "to close for comfort" right? Wrong. This b&b had the perfect location. Perfect views. Our room was adorable, clean and quiet. Go back in time, and be... More

Being located in a quiet residential area right on the Monterey Bay Sanctuary with the sound of the waves hitting the Pacific Grove coastline creates a time that you can hear yourself and your significant other. We appreciate your review. More

Lovely little inn right on the water. Just far enough away for a quiet evening but close enough to walk to the waterfront strip. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Rooms have no TV but there is wifi if you still want to connect but why would you! We stayed only one night but want to go back!

Mainly planned for a whale watching trip in Monterey on a Sunday, we decided to spend the day and the night before local. Out of tons of opportunities we selected the Martine Inn, initially because of the close proximity to the waterfront in Pacific Grove. But what a surprise, we were welcomed at one of the most lovely places we... More
