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. The Inn is impeccably kept from the guest rooms to the parlor to the dining room. Beyond that, the gardens and areas surrounding the Inn were beautiful.... More

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. From entering the door, you are greater with comfort, service and beauty. Over our visits, we have had 3 rooms, all beautifully appointed with great linens, fireplaces, cozy chairs, and ambiance fitting... More

My husband and I booked this Inn on the recommendation of a friend. I have to say, my husband usually doesn't care for B&B's but after staying here, he declared it as our new destination when we visit the Monterey Bay area. The Inn is charming and the gardens are outstanding. The owner and his staff made us feel welcome... More

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this place and the staff. We arrived right at 7pm to check in and were warmly greeted and given a tour by Dillon. He informed us that breakfast would be served @ 9am in the dining room. Well, we had plans every am but no worries...each day our meal was delivered... More

What a precious place to stay. The garden is stunning. The whole place is charming & inviting. The warmth of the home is instantly felt even as you drive up the driveway, which is surrounded by beautiful foliage. From the wood doors, the wood floors, the beautiful wood dining table & chairs & huge fireplaces, and all the unique, colorful... More

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.
