We loved this place! It is the right choice, no doubt. All staff was courteous and the hospitality was superb. They create a family environment with the gourmet breakfast and all little details! You do not have to miss it!

My letter to the Inn after my stay: Dear OMI family, I want to thank you for providing such an amazing experience for our new year’s. The accommodations were amazing: the welcoming first floor salon, the comfort of the linens and beds, the extraordinary dining room, the gardens and the fireplaces – we didn’t want to leave our room!

Spent three nights here and it was amazing. Attentive staff, great room (Mayfield), with walking distance or $6:00 Uber rates to downtown. Great gardens, parking, breakfast, happy hour, and elegant common salons that are so comfortable.

I have stayed at many B and Bs and The Old Monterey Inn is among the best. Clean, well-appointed room, beautiful garden, convenient location, and very quiet. Excellent breakfast. We had a minor maintenance problem in the evening and Dylan was available by phone, responded immediately, and solved the problem. We’ll be back.

We've wanted to stay here for some time and finally our wish came true. We only were able to stay one night but everything we experienced was top notch! We absolutely loved our room "the Mayfair Suite" in the main house. A really large King size bed with a huge sunk in jetted tub, a sitting area with a fireplace,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Old Monterey Inn for about one week a little over a year ago to celebrate a personal milestone. We stayed in the garden cottage, which was wonderful. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the really large jacuzzi tub (with skylight). We loved the sitting area in the cottage. There is also a... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2014

We chose the Old Monterey Inn for our second honeymoon trip to Monterey. We were very pleased with our choice. The innkeepers were more than attentive, the room (Garden Cottage) was private and inviting, the grounds were beautiful, and the location was a 10-20 minute walk to great restaurants and the wharf. For those interested in the second "B" of... More

When I first stumbled upon this place, I was a little taken aback by the natural beauty of it as described on their website, but after arriving I was humbled by the mere sight of the Inn. I just couldn’t believe how delightfully charming it was. With an entrance encased with Ivy and a secret garden on the side, I... More

I am always looking for a pleasant and "non-corporate" break from the usual Marriott routine. I was working in Monterey County for three weeks in November 2014, and, being somewhat familiar with the area, contacted the Old Monterey Inn regarding last-minute reservations. I ended up there for several days solo, followed the next week by another stay with my wife.... More
