We loved this historic Tudor home Ipin a quiet section a few blocks from the old town. The gardens are lovely to sit and walk around. We enjoyed a very formal delicious hot breakfast in the formal dining room and delightful conversation with other guests from all over California and international. They offered an evening wine and appetizer reception, but... More

The Old Monterey Inn lived up to all of its fabulous reviews. We were greeted by Robert upon arrival. He was friendly, accommodating, and attentive. We felt incredibly comfortable and at home. My husband and I would highly recommend the Inn.

We rented the cottage and enjoyed the quiet and peace it gave us while being just a short distance away from the main building. The staff is extremely helpful with ideas and the morning coffee on the doorstep is perfect. A wonderful get away from the stresses of life

My mom and I just spend a lovely three nights at this property, celebrating "Mom's 80th Birthday Adventure" in Monterey and the surrounding area. This property left me speechless. The rooms are beautifully decorated with lovely heirlooms, and so cozy and warm. You're awakened in the morning with the aroma of fresh coffee. *Sign* So lovely. There is a fridge... More

We stayed at 3 different B&Bs on our trip and this was the most intimate and most like what I thought a B&B would be. It's extremely charming, in every way. Almost felt like we were in a haunted house! We only stayed one night, and were more or less in and out because we were doing a lot of... More

Fabulous house, with a quiet and comfortable room, albeit on the top floor so a number of stairs to negotiate. Lots of helpful advice about where to eat. No choice for breakfast but food was fine. An oasis of calm in a charming house.

This was by far the best place to stay in Monterey. The manager, Robert, absolutely went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable, relaxing, and stress free. He was prompt with our needs and exceeded my expectations. Our room was beautiful with an automatic fireplace, huge jacuzzi tub with jets, dimmed lighting, and the most comfortable bed I have...

My lady and I spent 2 enjoyable nights here. I had booked the Chawton, a garden entrance room on the 1st floor. It was beautifully decorated but TINY. Robert graciously offered us the Mayfair Suite, which happened to be available - upstairs in the main house. Much nicer indeed but considerably more expensive. We're glad we changed.
