We were a little apprehensive after booking the Jabberwock Inn as it was quite different to other hotels we had booked for our Nevada/California trip. This apprehension soon disappeared after arriving. We were greeted by Rick who made us feel very welcome and helped us with our luggage. Our room (Brillig) was a good size with a view of the...

This was my second trip to this darling B&B. I stayed here once while traveling alone 25 years ago (in 1990) when it first opened, and decided to come back with my fiancé as part of my 50th birthday celebration. This darling "Alive In Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass" themed Craftsman style home is beautiful beyond belief! Decorated with period piece... More

We stayed at this great small little B&B for 2 nights. Had a wonderful experience. The facilities are clean and stylish and service was very friendly. Location is convenient. The owner was very friendly and told us about the history of the place which was very interesting.

We have been coming to the Jabberwock Inn over the years while visiting the Monterey area. It has changed hands but still reflects what we saw the first time. The fun thing was my husband actually memorized the poem years ago and was able to recite it for the owner impromptu - which got him a Jabberwock mug! There is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a fabulous stay at this incredibly friendly b&b. We met other guests in the evening for wine and treats before heading out into the town for dinner. We loved the Alice in Wonderland theme, and can only hope that if you go that you're lucky enough to experience the Stuffelberry breakfast. Beautiful immaculately clean room, complete wi... More

My husband and I spent three nights at the Jabberwock Inn in March 2015. The inn is situated in a good location on a quiet street, but just a few blocks from Cannery Row and within walking distance to the Monterey Aquarium. What a relaxing, enjoyable place to stay, in lovely surroundings (both the interior of the inn and the... More

Stayed just a night with my hubby as we toured CA. Very friendly staff. Could not have wanted to anything. Loved the cocktail hour shared with the other guest of the house and breakfast feast in the morning! Highly recommend.
