We stayed on the second floor with a King bed and it was beautiful and spacious. The bed was very comfortable, room was spotless...the concierge and cleaning staff were extremely attentive and kind. The breakfast was great - and as far as the location, we couldn't have asked for a better one! There is a small grocery store right next... More

I stayed here last week for a work convention and I was pleasantly surprised on how nice and clean the rooms and property were. The rates were super affordable and the bed was extra comfy... I would def. recommend this place..

Stayed at the Merritt House Inn for a couple of nights in June, Doug was very helpful at check in with advice on places to eat and whale watching trips. Room was spacious and very comfortable. The Inn is within easy walking distance to Fishermans Wharf and main st, not that far to the Monterey aquarium. Breakfast was in a... More

Merritt House was a little challenging to find, but we were happy we did. The unassuming entrance/reception building also holds the breakfast dining area. The rooms are in multiple buildings out back. They offer rare, but very appreciated covered parking for their guests. We stayed in a room closest to reception on the main floor. The room was pleasant and... More

Small, friendly hotel within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf. Good size rooms tastefully decorated to a high standard. Free on site parking. Continental breakfast included, but not worth waiting for if the dining room is full. Knocked a star off as (i) hotel not as pretty as indicated in photos - the building shown is there, but the rooms are... More

By Conference center, walking distance to to everything, including Fisherman's Wharf. FREE trolley comes by every 15 min that takes you everywhere, including Cannery Row, Monterey Bay Aquarium & more. Beautiful room with real fireplace, they gave us logs to burn. French doors in our room opening to lush gardens. Includes a continental breakfast. Great dining nearby. I would stay... More

We stayed for one night and I thought of not staying at all if we hadn't arrive at midnight in Monterey. The carpet of my room was old and looked filthy. The bathroom was from the 80s and looked that no one did any restoration since than. I had the inspiration to call the reception saying that we will arrive... More

DO NOT try to stay here. I booked a queen size room about 4 weeks prior to my birthday. When I attempted to inquire about whether or not they could check ingredients of amenities (I have a few food allergies) MY STAY WAS CANCELLED WITHOUT EVEN SPEAKING TO ME FIRST. I repeat, my stay was CANCELLED because I asked them... More

Location is excellent - 1.5 blocks from Convention Center, 2 blocks from Alvarado St. (great restaurants), short walk to the Wharf. Short drive to cannery row. It's just off a busy street, but the room was relatively quiet for a city hotel. Hotel is a bit dated, but "cute". Built in the 70's. There was some peeling paint in a... More

We recently had occasion to stay at the Merritt House while attending a Conference at the Monterey Conference Center. This Inn just happens to be right across the street from the Center. Most of the rooms are suites, but our room was on the ground floor near the office and was spacious. We had a king bed, several chairs and... More
