We had a great stay at the Old Monterey Inn to celebrate my birthday. Things we liked: -Nice gardens with plenty of spaces to sit and enjoy. There are plenty of lively birds to entertain nature fans. -Our room, The Library. Filled with tons of light—windows surrounded three sides of the room around the bed. It had a wonderful balcony,...

Old Monterey Inn is absolutely perfect! My husband and I still talk about our trip to Monterey and this beautiful Inn. We did not stay in the main building but had a private 'cottage' type room in the back. The room was small, but great. They provide wine and cheese in the evening and we enjoyed that in their beautiful... More

We stayed here 15 years ago, and remembered it so fondly. There is always a danger in returning to a place - perhaps the memory will be better than the new experience - but this was even better. We requested our same room (the Library) and from start to finish (well we haven't checked out yet) - it has been... More

From the reservations made by phone with Dillon, the reception upon arrival, the physical beauty of the place and its gardens, the care and attention to guests and property - all top notch.

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.
