Yes its good value and has a great central location. It's clean and the rooms are quiet. All looking good so far... BUT this will not suit everyone. The lift it seems has been out for more than six months and there is NO intention we were told to fix it. As we stayed they were replacing the hall carpets... More

There was a farmers market in the street where the hotel is on the night of our arrival - we had to do a slight detour but no big deal. Local multi storey car park is 200 yards away and only $7 per 24 hours. Nice old traditional hotel, pleasant and accommodating staff. The lack of a lift is no... More

My husband and I stayed here recently for 2 nights when visiting Monterey. We found this hotel to be a perfect fit for out needs. It's location is right downtown within close walking distance to the wharf, cannery row, etc. There is the option for valet parking, but we used a parking garage close by (7$ for 24hr). The staff...

We stayed here Sunday, March 23rd on a booking from Expedia for $60/night. WOW. The Hotel was built in 1904, the decor is replicas of beautiful carved beveled mirrors, chairs, fainting couches, 8' tall secretaries, side tables, gorgeous headboards. We stayed in room 303. There is no elevator, so it is a little hike up beautiful carpeted steps, you can... More

Very pleasant stay. The room was extremely small, just enough space for a bed and 1 person to move around it, very clean and comfortable and conveniently located. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Skip breakfast.

We weren't sure what to expect after reading the mixed reviews of this hotel. We decided to go for it because they had rooms available for our last minute get-away. We were not disappointed. The hotel was located a few blocks away from Fisherman's Wharf, so we walked everywhere after parking the car a few blocks away (for $7). There... More

Ok so it's old which they translated into quaint. What I experienced was no parking, no elevator (I was on the 4th floor), cable kept going out, wifi wouldn't work, lights out in the bathroom and just to top it off, the power wouldn't run my blow dryer. Not my idea of a good experience.

Great location to walk downtown and fisherman's wharf. We have business we have to visit in Pacific Grove a few times a year. We usually stay there but now stay at this hotel for the location and old charm. Beware no elevator but they offer assistance getting to your room. We usually upgrade to the 1 bedroom suite with fireplace... More

Monterey hotel is conveniently situated in a hustle and bustle area of Monterey. It is walking distance from a few restaurants and bars, and a Walgreens for those forgotten toiletries. They offer a continental breakfast the next morning and the rooms were clean, although I happened upon a used candle under the sink and a shirt on top of the... More
