This hotel is located right at the edge of their main Town. Alvarado street (which is their Main Street) is only two blocks away, about a 5 minute walk and there are loads of restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. About a 15-20 walk to the end of Alvarado Street and look to your left, you'll be at Fisherman's Whaft.... More

We chose it as a motel on the way from LA to SF, and were surprised of finding something quite nice and well provided. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely kind and helpful. Cindy gave me the most quiet possible room, as per requested, but in any case, the place is not noisy at all.... More

Stayed one night on April 9th and found the hotel very nice and comfortable. The room was clean, staff cordial and helpful. Continental breakfast in the morning hit the spot. Recommend to stay there and if my travels take to Monterey again will do the same.

It has a great location but it's aesthetics are not modern. Looks like a 70s era hotel started remodelling but stopped half way . Great service besides that and the parking sucks for trucks. It is very clean and even comes with a fireplace.

Walking distance to great restaurants, wharf, Cannery Row (20 minute walk). Old historic Monterey just down the street. John and Cindy are most welcoming and friendly, aiming to satisfy guest's requests; mine being a quiet corner room. I stayed in 223 with a small balcony in the rear of the property. Only noise I heard was very distant barking of... More

Stayed here a night, on our road trip from LA to SF. John on reception was very welcoming and friendly. Room was very spacious, big king bed, good bathroom, sitting area and a fire place. Close to town and good value for money. Had hundreds of dvds available to borrow from reception for a quiet night in as we were... More

We stayed here for one night on our road trip from San Francisco to L.A. On check in we found the gentleman on reception to be very welcoming and friendly. He gave us ideas of what to see in the area plus ideas of where to eat. Our room was well set out and roomy. We were on the ground... More

Stayed here as part of a coast-to-coast trip. Budget priced but friendly, comfortable and welcoming. Easy stroll to Monterey centre, Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row. Good value and highly recommended

We had only one night in Monterey and stayed at the Colton Inn, right in the heart of town. It's a pretty building with very nice rooms. Our standard room had a lovely bathroom, a separate make-up area outside of the bathroom and a small balcony outside the room, looking over a courtyard. The bed was very comfortable, made up... More

This gem came so close to 5 stars. Two little things prevented it. Firstly our room was really noisy. I was woken up twice during the night by rowdy neighbours (out of hotel's control really). We were on the ground floor right near the check in. If I was to stay again I'd definitely ask for an upper level room.... More
