Beautiful inn right on the ocean. Great host and nice continental breakfast served to your room. We will return. The grounds are beautiful. This would be a beautiful place to have your wedding. The weather was fantastic.

The view of the ocean from our bay window or porch was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful and constantly being maintained. The breakfast was good and more food than we had expected. The hotel is somewhat of a hike from town up and down steep steps, but a two minute drive. We will definitely stay here again. Ocean view room... More

Kate found this wonderful "Cove" last month which has a remarkable view of the Monterrey Bay. Our upstairs suite was from another time, but one look out the window of the Bay, and all was well ! If you like to hike on the beach follow the path which will take you to Beach where you can walk for miles.... More

The continental breakfast was very good nice fresh fruit, yogurt, juice,... More

You can hear some noise through the walls but that would be our own complaint. Beautiful location, breakfast is amazing and delivered to your room. Beautiful grounds and great service from the staff, we would definitely return.

We just stayed at the Monarch Cove Inn Friday and part of Saturday (we left early rather than spend another night in the Carriage House) based upon the many glowing reviews found on Yelp!. Well.....let the truth be told, the Carriage House is not what up to normal B&B standards by any stretch of the imagination. The Good: Nice view... More

We are so very sorry for the negative experience you had while visiting our property. We truly did not know about any problems with the water heater and if given the opportunity we would have happily upgraded you to a different room in order to perform maintenance on the Carriage House. We are a small property and we value any... More

We can not say enough about this place. Imagine waking up to a gorgeous view of the Pacific, but wait it gets better. A delicious breakfast is delivered to you. The building is absolutely charming and the staff is extremely friendly. We loved our two nights at Monarch Cove.

We absolutely loved this cozy, charming, comfortable classic bed and breakfast on a cliff overlooking the Monterey Bay. The staff was warm, welcoming and wonderful in answering our questions and directing us to some fabulous dining experiences in the area. Our room was furnished with a bottle of wine, candy and a rose on the dining table. The views from... More
