This inn started life as a motel, on the motel strip in Monterey, CA. Recently it was remodeled and updated. It still is motel style, but the rooms are very chic and not typical in a motel property at all. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very modern. The room was quiet. A complementary breakfast was included. Very... More

Nice room and very clean. Coolest part the shower had 2 shower heads. Room had a fireplace, a balcony, and included 2 robes for the pool. Very relaxing and quiet. Can't wait to come and stay again. Great for couples. The mall is across the street.

I am a travel professional and stayed here on February 7 for just 1 night. This is a great boutique hotel ..great value and rooms are comfortable and very stylish. Very convenient to Carmel and the Wharf 5-10 min where you can find a variety of restaurants. Drive slow when you get close as to not miss the entrance...shopping center... More

We stayed at this hotel several years ago when it was first remodeled and it was fantastic. However, each time we have stayed there since then, it has declined a bit more. We stayed two weeks ago in one of townhouses, their second most expensive room category. Although the price is decent, the furniture was dirty, the upstairs blinds were... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff. We stayed in a basic king room, which was clean and had a sleek look to it, it had more of a executive feel, not super cozy. The resort as a whole had a nice park like setting. The bed was ok, a little stiff. Our friend stayed down the hall... More

Nice room, but not as stated. Breakfast was sugar and same old thing. We stayed here due to the healthy breakfast but soon found out it was not. Lucky for the Starbucks across street or all we would have had was colored water. Went to town for breakfast. Rooms are nice but getting dated also, many hotels on street, they... More

Visiting family, they recommended the Mariposa. It sounds like a boutique hotel, but it's not. Munras Ave is a long stretch of one motel after another. Most are not within walking distance to the waterfront attractions. The Mariposa is at the far end of the row. We stayed in a king suite that has a little living room area when... More

We were very impressed with our updated room and the modern bathroom. The beds were extremely comfortable. The entire facilities were spotless! The only problem we had was minor...getting into the parking lot off the street and back on the street. Other than that, we loved this place and look forward to the next visit!

We were placed in Rm #309, one of the townhouse units. As our visit transpired, we discovered 4 burned out light bulbs (were able to replace 3 with bulbs provided by desk). The shower in the lower room was extremely difficult to turn on, but once on had sufficient hot water, unlike the upper shower. The alarm clock time can... More
