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 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

Really enjoyed our stay in the Monarch Cove Inn's Ocean Mist Suite. Beautiful view of the bay and grounds and great attention to detail. Love all those windows! Room much better than it looks in the photos. I wasn't too excited about the advertised "continental breakfast," but it turned out to be fabulous -- with pastries from Gayle's. As a... More

We loved our room. Everything about it was wonderful. The view of the ocean. It's proximity to Capitola Village. The service was equally great. We couldn't expect more. Breakfast was light but plentiful. The beds are very comfortable. We plan on returning soon.

I've visited this place twice and I want to go back soon. It's a great place to relax in quiet and enjoy the sea. Close to Capitola and the restaurants. Great service and the rooms are charming. Would recommend for couples.

Overall love the inn for its location – at the end of a quiet residential street. Room was comfortable and the grounds are fabulous, nicely appointed on the bay cliff. Seeing the sunrise from our room was awesome. Parking is open/free. Within a 10 minute walk/hike you can reach New Brighton beach (clean beach with bathrooms), or take the super... More

This is a perfect place for a romantic getaway, proposal, wedding, renew vows, etc. Beautiful B&B overlooking Monterrey Bay. The Inn is located in a residential neighborhood so it is very quiet. However, it is close walking distance to the cute beach town of Capitola. The grounds are well manicured and the building is a very cute Victorian vacation home.... More

This was the best stay I have ever had away from home! My fiancé and I fell in love instantly with the rooms and the location! We even decided to make this our anniversary getaway every year going forward! Thank you for a great stay! It was more than worth what we paid to stay there! It's a place we... More
