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! (And that never happens!) They were happy with the room, and the amenities, but were more impressed with the service and kindness they were... More

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...

Wonderful, clean and modern Inn. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Centrally located near the wharf and convention center- all within walking distance. A plus is the corner store and restaurants, all within walking distance, you'll never have to drive anywhere! I would definitely return.

Merritt House was the perfect spot to stay in Monterey for our Girls weekend. Our room was nicely appointed and cozy. Since it was cool we were able to have a fire in the fireplace on the evening and morning of our stay. The location is perfect to be able to walk to all the quaint shops as well as... More

We recently stayed at the Merritt House Inn and found it to be a very charming B&B. It is within walking distance of downtown Monterey and Fisherman's Wharf. Edmund was especially helpful with restaurant recommendations and other information. The breakfast area is somewhat small but it is possible to take food back to your room. Recommend staying in the private... More

It's not fancy. The furnishings are simple, the beds are comfortable and the breakfast ample. If you are looking for a good "base camp" to go and enjoy the wonders of the peninsula this would be an affordable choice.
