The Colton inn in Monterey has clean large rooms. Beds very comfortable. Convenient location to downtown and cannery row. I happened to visit during a heat wave of 90 plus temps. The rooms are not air conditioned and it got warm. I was told that they do have fans but you have to ask for them. It may not be... More

2 nights here in July was fine for us - reasonable price compared to some of the other places on our tour. Service OK, clean room, bathroom good. We had a corner room overlooking the main road; due to the lack of AC we had the windows open overnight (they had screens on them) and were surprised at how little... More

Monterey has so many things to do and places to see that there is little need for a lot of amenities. If you want a spa, fine dining, room service, etc, then this is not the place for you. If you want a good location, clean room, free wi-fi and free parking along with friendly helpful staff, then this is... More

A must for those visiting San Fransisco is a visit to Monterey Bay. Colton Inn very convenient and easy access to Cannery Row by car and not that long a walk! Generous sized room and well appointed. Wifi a little difficult but easy once outside it was easy!

Outstanding location that is walking distance to downtown and Fisherman's Wharf. Monterey Bay Aquarium is just 2 miles away. I loved the microwave, refrigerator, and free DVD library of movies. The weather was nice.

Decent hotel. Big drawback - no ventilation without opening the sliding door on main hotel deck to get fresh, cool air. Room was hot, corner ceiling fan just stirred the hot air. Slept very poorly. Asked for another room - none available. Asked for air conditioning, told no hotels in Monterey have them as 'they are not needed in the... More

there was a friendly service. The room was clean and ok. If you have breakfast there you need to have it outside on the patio area, this is acceptable as long as the weather is nice, otherwise you have to go to your room.

The location is good, short walk to downtown. long walk or short drive to the bay. Clean but dated. Our room had a meal fireplace which should have been left in the 70's. NO a/c. so for us it was a choice between privacy or good room temp. you needed to leave the door to the room open and the... More

I would like to start by saying I've never been compelled to write a review until now. I also have a hard time reading long reviews, so to keep it simple I'll say the following. The service was very poor. After we checked in we headed to dinner, upon returning our room was very uncomfortably hot! We called the front... More

We only had 1 night in Monterey whilst road-tripping the magnificent Route 1 from SF to LA. You are not short of accom options in Monterey so we decided to find something once we arrived in town. One of the first places we drove past was the Colton Inn which looked very inviting and was very central for downtown. We... More
