A classic B&B with beautiful facilities and grounds; with high prices; a postage stamp size room with an oversize bed in a converted garage; classic antique furnishings that are no more comfortable than your grandmother’s living room with about as much privacy. An excellent hostess who offered some personal charm in an otherwise stiff atmosphere. Driveway that desperately needs resurfacing.... More

We stayed here 2 nights as part of our California road trip. A lot of care has gone into this establishment but with hindsight it didn't suit our needs. pluses: - it is a beautiful building in an English Stately Home style, the rose garden is very nice if you have time, the reception room where evening wine is served...

This is a wonderful B&B with lots of charm, comfort and quiet. We enjoyed it so much the first time that we came back for our mini-moon this month. Breakfasts are delicious though I prefer the savory mornings to the sweet and the coffee is excellent. The gardens offer ample opportunity to relax on benches, at tables or on the... More

The Old Monterey Inn is a historic mansion once owned by a city mayor. The furnishings of the rooms are of high quality and consistent with the era. Extensive and well maintained gardens surround the home and give it a bucolic feel. All areas of the Inn are very clean. The Ashford Suite is spacious, nicely appointed and very quiet.... More

We were there for three nights and I was without a car while my husband and our son were out on a boat. We were in the Ashford Suite with the sitting room for our son. One we get the pillows sorted out and towels for our son, we did fine. We had a lot of bags to haul up... More

I was so impressed with this property! The grounds are lovely, the room was charming, and the inn keeper was so friendly. Check in went smoothly. The inn keeper was guininely friendly. She explained all about the property and what we could expect out of our stay. She showed us to our room. We stayed in the Chawton. This room... More

The steps were relevant because we stayed in the Ashfield suite and had to lug our daughters capsule up to the 3rd level each time we went anywhere. Staying in the original master bedroom of this great house makes it a first world problem I know! Set a few minutes drive from fishermans wharf and cannery row was fine for... More

There are so many bed and breakfast in Carmel and Monterey area. The reason I choose this one is mainly because it's probably a more adult only place. It is tuck away in a residential area of Monterey. It is about good 20 minutes walk to fisherman's wharf which is fine with my husband and I. The Inn has beautiful... More

We just spent two wonderful nights at the Old Monterey Inn B&B. It was lovely. We first stayed there 15years ago, and we are happy to report that we were not disappointed on our return visit. There is no detail left undone. Katy, the Innkeepper, was charming and clearly takes great pride in her home. The breakfasts were excellent, served... More

My husband and I stayed in The Library. It was a lovely room with windows everywhere. Our private balcony was very special as we sat and had coffee and read the paper in the morning. The bed was extremely comfortable and we both slept soundly. And though it was a cozy room, it had a very warm and welcoming feeling... More
