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

Stayed one night at the Colton Inn. It was Labor Day weekend, so we knew pickings would be slim to get a room in Monterey. But we had stayed at the Colton Inn many years ago, and the current AAA tour book gave it 3 diamonds which indicate "distinguished, multi-faceted with enhanced physical attributes, amenities and guest comforts". Well the... More

I haven't stayed in other Monterey hotels and will admit that hotels have variable pricing, so it may simply be that other hotels were full, so the price here went up - however... We ended up with a room that we paid over $200/night. It smelled like smoke, did not have any ventilation to speak of - certainly no air... More

In general the hotel is not bad except that it does not have A/C. We were told by the staff that no hotel in Monterey has A/C due to the coolish nature of weather there. The Internet in our room was not working despite having checked it with 2 devices. I do have a gripe with the service though, on... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Great location as only 10 minutes walk to fisherman's wharf and just a bit further to cannery row. Very helpful owner. Room comfortable and cookies and coffee is provided throughout the day.

There is free parking( a previous review said there isn't) . Clean comfortable rooms , free breakfast (coffee,cereal, fruit, pastries). Relatively cheap price compared to similar properties on our tour of California. Five minute walk to high street , 10 to the wharf and a pleasant 45 minute stroll to the Aquarium on Cannery Row ( it's 15 to 20... More

Not sure how to start, there is both positive and negative. Positive first. Hotel is really clean, staff very very pleasant, great price and good location. Within walking distance to the wharf and short drive to Cannery Row. Basic breakfast with coffee and snacks in the afternoon. Now the not so positive. There is NO parking. If you don't get... More

We arrived early for a three day stay in Monterey and the cleaning staff did a great job getting our room ready right away. Nice location within walking distance to the wharf. Breakfast on the balcony was very relaxing. We will stay there next time we are in Monterey.

This place has the potential for a lot of charm, but generally falls a little short. The room was clean, but dated. The balcony was kinda gross. On the upside, breakfast and available fresh fruit was great.

This hotel is a bit dated. The first room we were shown had issues such as the bedside lights didn't work. We moved to a second room which had holes in the screens. We stayed in the second room and fortunately didn't have problems with insects. the room was large, had a lot of natural light, and a fireplace that... More
