Perfect location in heart of Carmel. Only downside is that parking lot noise/light is somewhat audible/visible in some of the rooms. Karen at front desk was great source of info. We enjoyed the wine and cheese and guitar music in the courtyard before heading out for dinner. Bed was comfortable, shower was forceful. Loved the breakfast basket left by the... More

We had numerous issues with this Inn but couldn't beat the location. When we arrived we were offered a choice of rooms. When we went to the one we wanted, the door was open and the room was not cleaned. We were told the rooms wouldn't be cleaned that day so we didn't really have a choice. The room we... More

I stayed at Monte Verde Inn on a Thursday night (to avoid the drive up early Friday morning from silicon valley) I had an early am apt. In Monterey. Best idea ever. It was 15 hours of pure peace & quiet. I'll be back for sure!

My wife and I had chance to stay at this little Inn twice. Every time, there was a different experience. Front Desk staffs were friendly and guided me to my room.

We booked on the special offer otherwise would probably have rated lower. As with the last review it's evident some areas have been scrimped on...shower a bit mouldy etc and furnishings a bit tired. Comfy mattress though. Can't fault location and the music in courtyard during the wine socials in evening was nice. Just overall a bit worn and tired... More

I am reluctant to be negative about anybody trying to make a living and have full appreciation of how tough it is out there. On the other hand in the spirit of Trip Advisor it would extremely selfish to be always a taker and never give back. I rely on Trip Advisor opinion and therefore the following. There is no... More

We stayed at the Monte Verde for three nights. Our room was small, but we figured it would be since we were booking for value. The room itself was very cute and the little patio was great. The only thing that would have improved the room is a retractable screen over the sky light since the morning sun hit us... More

Hotel is older but has been remodeled for an antique-ish experience. Front desk woman was fabulous! Room was very cozy and comfy. A bottle of sherry was left for us to enjoy in the evening and a generous breakfast basket with fresh fruit, pastries , juice, yogurt was delivered to our door. Delightful!

Perfect little getaway. We stayed in a cozy little room with a beautiful little patio just outside our door. Location was perfect for walking through town or strolling the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a nice light breakfast delivered to our room each morning. Would highly recommend it and we will definitely return someday.
