An excellent option for a family, we stayed in a double queen room. price was competitive with other larger chain hotels, the continental breakfast was simple but adequate. The room was old but clean and well kept

Our group of four friends had two rooms. One (#1) on the garden, was excellent -- well appointed, quiet and with a lovely view of the garden and a very nice patio area. The other was upstairs toward the back of the property and wasn't bad, but had a couple of problems, especially a wing-backed chair that was very worn... More

My boss referred me here, so I made my reservation because, well, you do what the boss says. I'm really happy I followed orders (this time) because the Merritt House Inn is super! Within a quick walk to the convention center and both wharves, and close to the free shuttle that took me to Cannery Row. Super comfy beds and... More

The most comfy of four-poster beds with fireplace which in June remains dormant. Couldn't ask for anything more. Just lovely. Not a five-rating as I've not tried the breakfast yet. Clean, comfy and charming. Great location - a short walk to downtown and the wharf.

This is a lovely place to stay in Monterey. The room was beautiful and the bed was so comfortable! I also need to mention how friendly the staff were, especially at check-in. We hadn't researched the area much before we stayed, and the staff gave us some great advice and directions of how to get around the town. The downtown... More

I had stayed at Merritt House years ago, and was glad to revisit. Good location close to downtown and the wharf. Great rooms with fireplace- -cozy and comfortable. I got to stay in the adobe house suite this time which was fantastic with carved mission furniture and tons of atmosphere. Lovely.

We truly enjoyed our four night stay here. The rooms were comfortable, nicely appointed and spotlessly clean. The entire staff from the owners (a family) to the housekeepers were all friendly, helpful and responsive. Great location, a good night's sleep, great continental breakfast... everything was fantastic. Oh, and the price is right as well. We will definitely return in the... More

We drove down from SF along PC1 on our way to LA and stayed here for an overnight. The front desk staff were very friendly and gave great tips for restaurants and sites in the city. Check-in was a breeze and we found our room to be clean, spacious, warm, and inviting. They even gave us a log to burn... More

I booked this place because of the price and location; my parents needed a a weekend away and it was perfect! The owner was so kind to my parents, they are looking forward to going back!

What a charming inn! My family spent the night here, taking two delightful rooms on the ground floor opening out onto a patio and pretty garden. The rooms are beautifully decorated, cheerful and very comfortable: my daughter’s and my room was hung with lovely flower prints on pale yellow walls, with a corner fireplace, my husband and son’s room had...
