A friend and I stayed here for one night. Purpose of our visit was to attend the "Christmas in the Adobes" with Monterey State Historic Park one night a week ago. The next day we hiked in nearby Point Lobos. This hotel turned out to be a good stay for us. The location was convenient to the downtown and Fisherman's... More

We had a very strange and uncomfortable stay here. Even though we booked directly through the hotel weeks in advance, at rack rate, and checked in at a reasonable time, we ended up with the worst room in the hotel: 101, right by the office and the janitors' closet, with noisy foot traffic upstairs and a gnarly trash can right...

We needed a room for a last minute excursion for Crab/Rock Cod fishing. We stayed in Rm.#201, a Standard King with fireplace and tiny balcony. The door stuck and was hard to lock. The balcony had a pad thrown down over the cement in which it smelled of mildew, thus you couldn't leave the door open for fresh air into... More

Hotel was lovely, staff friendly. Room was amazing with a working fireplace which was a nice added touch. Great location with only a 10 min walk to the beach and the wharf. Hotel could be better sign posted and entrance sign was quite small.

My husband and I stayed at the Colton Inn as part of our honeymoon trip travelling up the California Coast. We picked the hotel pretty much at random from those in Monterey within our range and having decent reviews, and it turned out to be an excellent choice. Ideally located a 5 minute walk from downtown and 15 minutes form... More

Very nice hotel, about a 10 minute walk to fisherman's wharf and about a 10 minute drive to Cannery Row. The rooms were very nice,clean and comfortable. Definitely would stay again if we were in the area.

There are many hotel and motel choices in and around Monterey. The Colton Inn proved to be a very good choice for us. It is located on a quiet street which is close to restaurants and a short walk to Fisherman's Wharf. The Inn is set up like a motel, which means the door to your room is on the... More

Well located about 15 minutes walk from Fisherman's Wharf and plenty of free parking. Friendly and efficient staff with complimentary refreshments, fruit and cookies throughout the day until 10pm. Breakfast was very good with a few tables on patio at back. Room was large and bed comfortable. Fridge and nearby ice machine was a bonus. Would certainly recommend and stay... More

The Colton Inn is walking distance to most Monterey attractions. We had a pleasant stroll to downtown Monterey. Only 1.5 short blocks from vibrant coffee shops, restaurants, and boutiques. Our room overlooked a serene, wooded landscape. This hotel setting is unique. We were warmed by the morning sun and listened to the birds sing, while relaxing on the peaceful rear... More
