I do not usually review hotels, but after staying at the Old Monterey Inn, I felt I HAD to register on tripadvisor in order to give the absolutely fantastic level of service the accolades it deserves. The inn itself is worth a five star review – magnificently charming and with real character – but what really sets this place apart... More

We had the pleasure to stay two days at the Old Monterey Inn and would return any time. Lawrence provides you with an "English-feel" at his Tudor-mansion with a beautiful garden, a class of Californian wine in the evening and cooked breakfast, joinlty enjoyed with the other guests of the house at 9:00 a.m. In addition he was very helpful...

The OMI has been one of the favorite parts of our vacation. From the exceptionally personalized service, to the elegant, yet warm and inviting accomodations, every part of our experience was wonderful. We cannot wait to return.

We luckily scored a single Friday night stay (usually a two night minimum on Friday/Saturday stays). We were attending a performance at the Golden State Theatre in old downtown Monterey. The Inn has convenient and adequate off street parking. The downtown and wharf are a short walk from the Inn and has sidewalks all the way, so no walking in... More

I recently stayed at the Old Monterey Inn on a girls' weekend. We had the only two rooms on the third floor which allowed up to have our own space where we could leave our doors open to create a suite-like experience when we were not out and about. The rooms are charming and we used our private fireplaces every... More

We stayed here 2 nights over our 55th Anniversary. The Old Monterey Inn has restored my faith in a perfect B&B. The owner and manager made our stay one we will always cherish.

We just completed our third stay at the Old Monterey Inn. It is amazing. First, the grounds are large and comprised of beautiful gardens both formal and casual.
